Guide to Nakayoshi magazine issues where MKR was originally released

Hello
As promised in the rewatch chat:

This is a quick guide to the release of the Magic Knight Rayearth manga
as originally published in Nakayoshi magazine from 1993 to 1996.

For easiness of identification, I have numbered each installment as "chapter #x"
even though CLAMP never really divided the MKR manga in chapters.

The images were taken from Miss Dream's website. 
They have been downsized for the use in this forum.

For bigger scans, please refer to Miss Dream's archive:

Nakayoshi - October 1993

There were three images announcing the publication of MKR manga for the magazine's next issue.

Hope this is useful for all Magic Knight Rayearth fans out there :)


Just as a reminder, this was published in the same magazine and at the same time Sailor Moon was running.
Both series ran in the same magazine, but were not placed adjacent or near in the magazines pages. 
They were separated by pages of other series.

This is incredibly helpful.

Also, I really wish that those title page pictures of Autozam, Chizeta, and Fahren had been included one of the artbooks. (And I'm including North Side and South Side in that, too.)
Of course I'm normal...I'm 90 degrees off from the rest of the world.
