Just in and totally Japanese: Idea361

Straight from The Land of the Rising Sun: Idea 361.

Loaded with Japanese schoolgirls in short skirts, this new issue of Idea. Innocent childish faces, Manga-like personalities, lots of Barbie-colours. Idea is about Japanese popculture – Idol Identity is its theme. Of course the issue tells you a lot about popular Japanese design, but at the same time it discloses the countries fascination with guilty innocence and the attraction of very young girls, which is at least a bit doubtful. But that is my conclusion – since almost all of the text is in pure Japanese, I may be missing the point.  Only the band names are written in the latin alphabet, and these letters disclose the names of unknown stars like Uesaka Sumire, Pon Pon Pon, The Rhymeberry Squad, Baby Metal, Bellring Girls Heart and Dorothy Little Happy.
