Nakayoshi January 1988

This download is of the Nakayoshi January 1988 issue.

Many of Naoko Takeuchi’s works, including Sailor Moon, were serialized by chapter in this monthly publication before being published by Kodansha in book format. These back issues of Nakayoshi are extremely difficult to find due to their age, the fact that the publisher does not allow for direct back issue re-ordering, and their rarity – many collectors in Japan prize these issues, especially when they feature famous artists such as Ms. Takeuchi.

This particular issue features the second story of Chocolate Christmas by Naoko Takeuchi, as well as some really awesome vintage shoujo comics!

    (sorry, it’s me again…)

    The download links (both direct and torrent) lead to a file that’s called January 1988, but is actually scans of January 1998. Thought you might like to know. :)

    Again, thank you so much for scanning and hosting these! I continue to enjoy them so much.

      No need to apologize, I’m sorry that I apparently failed in some instances in getting everything going on these pages. I knew of the issues between those January issues last year and thought I had fixed it, apparently that’s not the case. But it looks like I still have RAR archives of the two different ones not labeled correctly since they were meant for temporary use that I am now happy I did not delete. XD I will see if I can sort this out quickly. Thank you for the heads up!
