MAGAZINES WITH PSYCHO LE CEMU CONTENT

last update: 6/16/2005

This information is provided as a service to Psycho fans and cosplayers. Since j-rock magazines can be expensive and hard to find, I hope to point you in the right direction for the pictures you want. THIS LISTING IS NOT COMPLETE OR COMPREHENSIVE. I'm doing my best and will keep the updates coming. If you have a magazine not listed here, please pass on the information!

List is in alphabetical order by publication, and chronological within publication, with the exception of specials from a publication, which are listed at the end.Dates are listed the way they are on the publication - which means some are listed Western style (Feb 2004), others are listed in Japanese order (2004.2.4, which would be February 4, 2004). Issues with PLC as the cover image appear in bold. Page listings with a question mark are unconfirmed.Costume sets are listed by their most commonly used *fan* names - not their official names. AnU = Ai no Uta PV set; GMGR = Gekiai Merry-Go-Round PV set; RH = Roman Hikou PV set; OA = Omoide Aruki PV "Saiyuki" set; MnS = Michi no Sora PV set; YK = Yume Kazaguruma PV set; Frontiers is the all-white WITH PV set. Starred issues are in my personal collection.

Additional Note: the Gothic & Lolita Bibles are not listed here because they are mooks, not magazines, and because AYA appears in them in a modeling capacity, not a musical one. However, for your reference, AYA has had a feature modeling designer outfits in every EG&L Bible since volume 4 (generally 2-4 pages). :) I am also not including the KRONOS fanclub magazine because, well, OF COURSE they're in it.
