✩#5 Gal News: EGG✩

I think I’m going to try out a new segment for this blog to get more posts on here. Since I don’t have much of a life outside of work, this would be a great way to keep work flowing.

It shall be called: Gal News!
Anything and everything related to Gal shall be written here. Since The Doll has been pretty much dormant, I will do my best to get all sorts of goodies on here! Hopefully to be just as good as The Doll.

There are quite a bit of Gyaru out there that have pushed on through even when it really looked like it was the end. It was especially hard when EGG announced its final issue. While other brands had closed up shop and other magazines stopped publication, EGG held out a little longer. But even the Gyaru bible eventually said goodbye back in 2014.

That made me really sad because back then I had started going to my local Kinokuniya and discovered they were selling EGG there. I tried buying an issue every month! So the above issue was the last one I could find (before discovering online shopping sites of course).

The beautiful but sad goodbye…

Last year, EGG presented us with a happier surprise and brought it back as a digital magazine. There were a few articles and lots of photos. I will admit I was not as happy as I wanted to be.

And then this happened.

So ridiculously happy! I never saw such an out pour of love for anything Gyaru. Twitter was filled with retweets and sincere wishes. And one of my biggest wishes have come true. Now all we have to do is wait for the official release date. As soon as I find out, it will be posted here and I will make sure to reserve a copy!
