I don't plan on making this a regular thing and scans really aren't the purpose of this blog, but both of these have such amazing content worth sharing that I think it would be a shame not to. I used Amazon JP and shipped these directly to me. [Ageha magazine link] [Popteen magazine link] They shipped via DHL and arrived within 7 days of placing the order.
I scanned portions of the magazine to share that I personally found interesting or that I thought would be helpful to others. I definitely encourage you to purchase and support the magazine directly where you can if you want to see the full issue. These scans are meant to be for personal use and I do not claim ownership of these images.
Popteen April 2016
Ageha April 2016
I definitely consider both of these excellent purchases and worth the international shipping (although it would have been fantastic if it could have been avoided of course). Popteen's target audience is definitely a bit younger than I am but I still like to browse through the issues and pick out what might work for me or just use some coordinates as inspo and adjust pieces to fit my personal style better. And the Liz Lisa spread was the big selling point for me anyway. That being said, as their content has been changing over the years, there are some slightly more "mature" looks as they've been incorporating some larme-kei type coordinates as well and those are interesting to see. On the other hand, Ageha is definitely more on the onee/sexy side and since that was my original gateway into Jfashion years ago, it never tires for me even if I don't purchase a lot of the items or wear them often myself. (This is mostly because I don't have an appropriate place to wear them but not because I don't like the items.) I love the crisp and clear images produced by this magazine and couldn't stop turning the pages. Thanks Ebony for the recommendations!
