Kotoishi Naru keeps on calling the main character a Junon Boy. He seems to take this as insulting.

What is a Junon Boy and why does he dislike being called that?


Junon is a monthly Japanese fashion magazine primarily directed towards teenage girls and women. It began circulation in June 1973.

Source: Wikipedia

Given Junon super boy contest is a beauty contest I would guess, "Junon Boy" basically means "pretty boy".

The magazine hope page can be found at: http://www.junon-boy.jp/

I am basing my answer on research so perhaps some one else can confirm this, also I could not find any information of the meaning of maganize name alone, so again I am basing on the circumstances.

  • This is right as far as I can tell.

  • The only context I've heard "Junon" used is referencing the magazine or contests, so I'm pretty sure this is correct. It's worth pointing out that the homepage for the contests is junon-boy.jp.

Someone replied about Junon Boy on Yahoo! Answers 5 years ago. Hope this helps a little bit.

It is a beauty contest for young boys, like teenage boys. Junon is a magazine, like Seventeen. I don't know what they win, but I think many girls' readers vote, and I believe the winner will get some money and a contract with some actor/modeling agency.

Most of the contestants are just young boys who want to be actors/models.
