Will continue that discussion in the next 'from the vault' post, three of them are in that series so it's never long between posts. But I'm wrong saying that as it's been a while since the last Mariko post, think she's just had one in the last two months and that was for a new stupendous Young Jump spread. For some strange reason she popped in my mind during the day at work and haven't been able to get her out if my mind since then, actually she's kind of a pleasant thing to stick in your mind.
Time to revive Mariko's 'vault series', did four posts back in November for it and stopped for some reason Even though at times I say there's not many new things to post about there must be as series like this one tend to get put on the back burner because there's so many other things to post about. Most of her spreads from mid-2012 are here and will finish that year off eventually but there's zero mag spreads prior to that year. 2011 was an exceptionally good year for her mag spreads and there should be 3-4 posts for the year. First set is from the June 20th issue of WPB.
Another WPB spread which was from issue #44, it was actually an AKB spread but there were some truly fabulous(as usual) pics of Mariko.
This and the above spread were promoting her 2011 photobook "Mariko Magazine", have posted that PB here and it's chick full of jaw-dropping pics. This set is from the November 4th issue of Friday.
Usually like to save the best for last but is there anything less then 'best' when it concerns Mariko? Last collection of pics for this post is from Young Jump #22-23.
