Although the official Johnnys site only promised posters in Duet and WinkUp, Potato also came through, so all three mags featured the photoshopping skills of various Japanese graphic designers to bring us the NEWS members together on the same poster. They did a pretty good job.
My main disappointment with these issues is that they continue the woefully pathetic level of non-promotion of Sakura Girl. Even though we waited a whole year for a new single, NEWS didn't manage to score a single cover of the 4 main mags (Popolo gives us everyone every month). NEWS had 3 covers for the release of Koi no ABO - Duet, Potato and Myojo. But since then they've had only one cover, being WinkUp to co-incide with 24Hour TV in August.
So given the lack of concern even from their own management, I'm left thinking there were many inside Johnnys who were surprised that there was still enough of a fanbase for Sakura Girl to sell as many copies as it did. Well done NEWS and their dedicated fans!
