May Mags - Duet, Potato, WinkUp, Seventeen

Another round of magazines ... Duet, Potato, WinkUp and Seventeen for May.

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!

thank you for sharing these scans.
I have always loved your scans as they are huge and includes NEWS posters that are in the magazines.

It is so hard to find scans of posters.

Yes, scanning the posters is actually the thing I started out doing - for that very reason. You either couldn't find them or they were only out there in pieces. And it's nice to see them in one piece, even though it's hard to get an idea of the size of a poster from a scan.

thanks! I love your scans because you do the posters too~
I've been holding off on buying JE magazines because I wanted to get something with NEWS on the cover. And... that hasn't happened yet. And no one knows why management seems to hate NEWS, argh. But I think I'll head down to the Japanese bookstore as soon as May comes around and pick up a copy of Wink Up for that poster.

^a lot of rambling and very bad grammar. basically: thanks for your nice scans xD

It's just weird that they got a few TV magazine covers when they're hardly ever on TV, and all the main mag covers went to NYC - not that their single even sold half that of Sakura Girl with all the attention and promotion. NEWS and NEWS fans continue to do it tough, but I guess we can cherish everything we have and don't waste the few morsels that we get.

Apr. 14th, 2010 09:55 am (UTC)
yup - we hang in there in spite of the lack of love their own management shows them! And it was good to see that all three of these mags did come up with posters.
