Narumi furoku 1988
Here, I have collected furoku from the Narumi arc. The Narumi arc is shorter than the Ranze or Aira arcs, which means less furoku were produced for it, but Ikeno's art was highly polished and cute during this time, and a lot of the furoku are incredibly charming and well-designed. Narumi furoku was as popular as Ranze furoku, which you can tell from how Narumi was consistently featured on so many of the big staple furoku: playing cards, notebooks, diaries, letter sets, binders, posters, bags, and so on. Towards the end of the Narumi series the furoku drop off, but this seems to have more to do with Ikeno taking time off for her pregnancy.
