Scans of Popsister's last issue before hiatus

Goodbye PopSister!
This issue, the November 2011 Edition is unfortunately the last.

PopSister’s editor announced the hiatus on Twitter:
“We are sorry to suddenly announce that after the release of the November edition PopSister will be closed temporarily. To those who supported PopSister I am very grateful and I would like to apologize. Thank you very much.”

Popsister is a gyaru-shibuya-kei monthly magazine published by Kadokawa Publishing & Co.. It was first published in 2009 as a special edition to it's younger sister magazine, Popteen, and was known under the title, 'Scream'. The first authentic issue of Popsister was released in April of 2010. It featured seven exclusive models, Tsubasa Masuwaka, Kana Hoshino, Yui Kanno, Jun Komori, Tomoko Higuchi, Eri Aoki, and Wei Son. The magazines targets women in their teens and early 20s.

Really grateful my friend was able to grab a copy for me before he came back on his business trip in Japan. Sad PopSister is on hiatus but I hope for their comeback in some way :'(

I wonder if it has something to do with Tsubasa graduating from the Pop-series of magazines all together. The mag was launched because models like Komori Jun and Tsubasa were getting too old to model for Popteen but they were still popular amongst that demographic. Now with Jun married and Tsubasa focusing on other projects, Popsister sort of lost its two biggest draws.

It's too bad because it's my favorite gyaru magazine. Popteen is too cutesy, Jelly, EGG, and Blenda aren't really my style. I'll miss it dearly. :(
