Japan's Oldest and Most Famous Women's Magazine Features "A Japanese Rock 'n' Roll Ghost Story"!

Japan's oldest and most famous women's magazine, a magazine that's been around for more than 50 years, "Josei Jishin" has run a news feature about "A Japanese Rock 'n' Roll Ghost Story"!

Josei Jishin translates into "Women's Confidence" and it is ubiquitous in Japan; you see it at all the banks, hair salons and doctor's offices. There isn't a person over 10 years old in Japan who hasn't heard of Josei Jishin.

On Saturday, July 18, 2015, they ran a news feature about "A Japanese Rock 'n' Roll Ghost Story"!

Here's the link: 女性自身!?まさか!マイクの映画の記事が!今すぐチェック!

Here's the artist's (uh, me) rendition of the magazine jacket (subject to change without notice! Hee hee hee.)

The article starts out:

「一緒に日本のロック映画作らないか…」(Mike: "I'm making a a rock music movie. Let's do it together.")
「映画会社はどこなの?マイク」(Josei Jishin Magazine: "What movie production company is making this movie?")
「自分で作るのよ、僕が…」(Mike: "Uh, it's just me.")
「製作費は?」(Josei Jishin Magazine: "How about the budget?")
「お金ないよ」(Mike: "There is no budget. It's a punk rock movie.")
「えっ、、、、、、」(Josei Jishin Magazine: "What the f*ck????")
