Hey cutie! How are you? ♡ Today is going to be a very picture heavy post as I wanted to include some images of hime gyaru models from Koakuma Ageha! These scans are mostly from 2008, and you might have to squint in some as there are quite a few instances where hime gyaru are tucked away into the corners. Okie, let’s go!
Huge shoutout to Kayla for sharing these Ageha scans!
It seems like the world of gyaru is making a comeback – Koakuma Ageha has returned with a new October issue. The front cover has all of that glitz and sparkles that it used to back in the day, with Sakurina looking like an absolute goddess on the front.
Apparently the older you get, the less you experience of the year.
Like you know how the year seems to go by really slowly when you’re 5 years old? And how it’s going past really quick now that you’re (x)? That’s because we’re only really “experiencing” 1/x amount of the year. So I’m “experiencing” only 1/20th of it right now.
How creepy is that?
Which is why I was incredibly surprised when I realised that it was time to write about blog post! I’ve been so caught up with my dissertation that it’s Thursday before I even knew it. Damn. Didn’t help that I was stressed because I was an idiot and tipped a pint of summer fruits squash over my laptop so had to wait for it to dry and pray that it worked okay.
It turned out okay – it has been okay so far though – so now I’m able to write this blog post. Woop woop!
Quite a bit has happened since I last posted; I met up with my gorgeous girly Charli to go for one last bit of shopping before uni started, and I was extra careful not to splurge. Go me! I managed to find that meow crop sweater that I had been looking for for ages, and also got my hands on an Ageha issue <3
First day at uni was pretty good; I got to see my classmates again and managed to talk to one of my lecturers about my dissertation so that I’m now ready to start researching my ass off. It’s a good thing I like researching new things because I’d totally be having panic attacks right now…
I decided to doll up because I had aaaaages before I had to go into uni, and wanted to go for the more “gyaru-kei” look that Chie & Chika do.

On the second day I was feeling a bit crap because of all of the fandango with my laptop, and dolling up actually made me feel a hell of a lot better. How strange!

I know you have been waiting so long for this release, but the editors and staff (including moi) worked really hard for this one and we hope that you will thoroughly enjoy reading it!
