Nakayoshi June 1996

This download is of the Nakayoshi June 1996 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 Act 52 of Sailor Moon, as well as other series like Magic Knights Rayearth and Saint Tail!

    Hi there! Wow, what a precious work you’ve done :D I got a little question, when was the date the June edition of Nakayoshi came out? Was it always on May 3rd or it was on May 1st? Your answer would be really helpful! Thanks in advance!

    Just a note, this issue has the first chapter of Card Captor Sakura. She appears in the May issue, but only on one page to promote the June debut. My family was stationed in Japan (Navy) and I have a lot of nostalgia for these characters and stories. I would love to start collecting these early to mid 90’s Nakayoshi despite the expensive shipping costs. Thanks for posting scans, love them!
