This download is of the Nakayoshi July 1997 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 does not feature any works by Naoko Takeuchi or related to Sailor Moon in any way, but I figured I would provide this download from my private Nakayoshi back issue collection because it is pretty special. This issue features one of the original serialized chapters of the popular mega-hit series “Card Captor Sakura”!
