It’s been nearly a month since the last Japanese Magazine of the Week, maybe I should make it a monthly special? Apparently a storm is heading to Barbados so I wanted to get this out before any potential black-out occurs.
This week’s magazine is Happie Nuts. I first found out about ths magazine back in 2009, but I couldn’t find as many resources for it as I did Popteen or Egg. Happie Nuts is always known as a sexy gyaru magazine, priding itself not only in Onee-gyaru (lit: older-sister gyaru; meaning: mature/adult gyaru) style but darker skinned gyaru. Even now, while the models are not extremely tan, most of them sport a light bronze glow.
Popteen’s publisher is Inforest Co. Ltd. and the magazine’s official site is https://nutsweb.net/. It goes on sale on the 17th of each new month. Right now the August issue is out however the latest one I have is the July issue. In Japan it sells for 690 yen (approx $6.90 USD) in Japan. Which is more expensive than the $4.80 USD Popteen magazine.
