Japanese Fashion Magazines

Both of these gal magazines are aimed at fashion, but even though they look the same, they actually have differences. Can you guess what that is?
The first magazine is for JS Fashion (elementary school girls) , while Ranzuki is made for girls in their older teens and young adults!  There are some very fashion forward girls in Japan, and almost every girl that is into fashion at a young age reads Nicola.  Nicola has about the same layout as an teen magazine, and covers everything from dating advice to fashion. Most children's magazines in Japan come with small gifts called furoku, to encourage girls to purchase their own copy of the magazine instead of just sharing with a friend. Want to see it for yourself? Go down to the link below and say that Minako-Chan sent you!
