I got hold one some of the magazines with the Yamato ^^
I really like this series and have most of the manga edition.
But it a harder challenge to find those magazines the series were first published in .
And those magazines are way large with page then the Weekly Jump magazines.
So Shiroi Senshi Yamato were one of the long series about a dog as a main character,
by Yoshihiro Takahashi.
The series started in the year 1976 and ended in 1989 .
I got hold on following magazines ;
Monthly Shōnen Jump
- 1979, issue 2
There are 462 pages total
One color page (chapter page) and 38 pages with Yamato
I got this one from YahooJapan auction for 800 yen (without shipping)
- A other one from 1979, issue 20
The magazine are called ?: Super Jump.
I'm a bit unsure about this one .
* The seller I got this one from ( Four month ago) had mark this one as Yamato story.
I haven't thought more about this, until now ^^
And I got this one on YahooJapan for 600 yen (without shipping)
Seem that I got a great price
There are a colored cover , 5 color pages.
16 red/grey/white/black colors pages, 13 blue/white pages
If we summary up , there are 34 pages, in total the magazine have 602 pages.
Monthly Shōnen Jump
- 1984, issue 5
This is a special anniversary edition called : Thanks 100th anniversary
In total the magazine have 528 pages
There are in total 53 pages with the series of Yamato. And the first page/chapter start with a color page of Yamato series, then 4 colored pages .But the special with this edition isn't the facts that that Yamato is on the cover.
It's the big double side poster inside the magazine.
The poster are 74, 5 cm long and 6,5 cm wide.
And at one side you can see Yamato his master and friend & his brother running.
At the other side there are different attack technique and date (year/date) for the Yamato's life.
You can also see friends,opponent that Yamato have to meet during the manga series.
The first page/chapter start with a color page of Yamato series.
Then 4 colored pages .
But there are also a add for Yamato items and a page with questionings about the series.
I guess you could win the items if you answer right and send the answer for the competition.
This seems to be from a Anniversary (according to Monthly Jump)Please don't use the image without approve from me
For those magazine are intresting to study .
Just the early drawing by Yoshihiro Takahashi are way beautiful to see.
But you also see some roots and inspiration from Yamato for the most well know manga & anime series :
Ginga Nagareboshi Gin
This magazine I got from a privet seller
I guess this one are one that I pay a high price on, but I can't remember how hight right now
* A bit of update
Thank for the note about this one ^^
