This weeks update brings you several different issues! We have Sailor V from the RunRun issues, more Young You, and the Toy Book as well!
The Toy Book is an issued book from the 90’s that tells you all about the latest and most fashionable toys for children from that year as well as articles about what’s good and what companies creating new toys are up to.
Young You magazine is a monthly manga compilation phone book, similar to Nakayoshi except it is for a “josei” or young women’s audience. It ran until 2005 when it was abruptly discontinued by the publisher, Shueisha. Naoko Takeuchi published her “Punch!!” series in this magazine from 1998 – 2004, detailing personal life events such as her marriage and child birth experience.
RunRun was a monthly publication owned by Kodansha in the 1990s. This magazine company is no longer in business and these issues are long out of print.
