200_jarvthumb.jpgTokion, the magazine that forgot what it was about—Japanese cool, freaky fashion, and cool art that made it a standout when first published—has a “NEW LOOK” and “NEW FEEL” as the coverlines emphatically states begs. However, after a quick thumb through, you realize quickly that Tokion is still not breaking any NEW ground. Basically, the mag now costs $5.99, is no longer perfect bound, grew to a slightly more awkward size, doesn’t have the editor in chief writing every article, and still maintains the editorial and visual blandness that’s kept it in a perpetual state of irrelevance since investor Larry Rosenblum took the reigns and sent Adam Glickman on his way with a $2 million check a few years ago.
