03:27 pm - 'Zuka books~
Alright, as promised, here're the photos of my new 'Zuka books *O*  Obviously I didn't photograph every page, just randomly picked a few pages from the books to post here (as usual, click on photos to enlarge).  Feel free to ask for any of the photos in high-res scans, or if there's a 'sienne from this time period that you adore and want me to see if I can find some photos of her in these books and scan them let me know.  Be warned I don't know the 'siennes from the 90's that well though, so you might need to provide me with the Japanese characters of her name:


Up first, Maki Ichiro's Elisabeth from 1996~
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


Close up of the left page.
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


This was Maki Ichiro's goodbye show I believe, always sad to see them go, but it's surely just the beginning of an amazing career.
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


Next up, backstage photos!!
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

I LOVE THIS PAGE!!!  *Ahem* <___<  Well I do...
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


I especially love this pic...ANYTHING with otokoyakus having PHYSICAL CONTACT deserves CAPS <____<
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


Ready?  Altogether now...1...2...3: OSAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA~!!!
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


Touko's so cute~
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


I love Juri, so sad she's retired now *sniff* but her GoGo show's hilarious still XD
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


Cool and handsome Wataru~
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


Wonder who she's calling...
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


Next is Fantastic Takarazuka...just in case you didn't know that already >D
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


There're a few pages that are personal profile-type pages of the tops and rising tops of that time, here's 2 that I actually know.
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


And a few pages of the...1994 sports day event I believe~  These look like so much fun!
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


Maya Miki's autobiography book I believe this is~  Anyone a Maya Miki fan on my f-list?
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

We start off with some wonderful coloured photos...
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


Baby 'sienne!  Literally!!
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


Now, I can't read Japanese at all (sometimes I can guess at kanji with my limited knowledge of Chinese) so I can be wrong, but I believe this is Maya Miki at 2 and 3 years old respectively.  That boy in the stripped shirt is an older brother I think...?
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


In middle school...?
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


I skipped a few years lol.  Again, if anyone is a fan of Maya Miki and would like to see more photos from the book let me know and I'll scan some high-quality pics for you =^-^=
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


And lastly, a WOWOW book, not really sure what the text in the book is (and there's a lot of it) but damn it's got some nice photos >D
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

The elegance and colours kind of just blows you away until all and any coherent thought gets jumbled into variations of "holy...so...pretty...gorgeous...shiny...omg...*O*...."
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

The end~

Oh yeah, and I finally changed the layout pic;

or click  koneko_desu.  I have to say, I hesitated on such a pink/girlish background, I prefer my dark blues and blacks, but blue sakuras look odd <___<;;

[EDIT]: I WANT THIS (shushes the non-material-conscience voice)!  x___X  787 yen...am I even reading that correctly??  It is BLASPHEMY that the Personal Book for OSA is merely 787 yen >__>

Neat; thanks for sharing. ^_^
The purple book is about the TV program Star no Kobeya (I think it's in reruns now...) - I see a cap from Mugen Houjushou, so I'm guessing it's older. *shrugs*
And as to the auction, that series of PBs was 1000 yen originally, so it's not a significant discount. ^_^; It is out of print though, so if you want it Y!J is a good bet.

Oh, I highly doubt that book will still be that cheap at the end of the auction ;)

I bought my copy of Osa's PB off auctions months back! grab it while you can <3 it's love :D hehe ...
she was pretty young then ;p so it's cute :)
I can't remember how much exactly I paid - but I know I didn't pay that much over 1000yen! (a steal, I think) hehehe ...

anyway - I don't need scans cos I got the book ... but since you asked ...
I'M A MAYA MIKI FAN!!

Ooh I'm so tempted to buy that Osa book now but I've never used yahoo auctions and coupled with I can't read a word of Japanese I don't even know how to bid on that site ;_____; And I hear most people on yahoo auctions don't ship internationally? Grrr...did you use a 3rd party buying service when you bought you're copy??

yeah - I used http://crescent-shop.com :) it's pretty useful!
the best thing is that the whole site is in English - so it's darn easy for us to use :D they do charge service fees though.
but it's still quite affordable :)
go check it out!!
be warned though ... it's gonna lead to a whole lot of buying on YJA ;) hee ...
