LAST was published by Japanese Esquire as a bi-annual publication in the early-late 2000s. The magazine made it up to vol. 13. Although I have vols. 3-13 in front of me, I cannot read Japanese and can't work-out the publication dates. But if vol 6 was published in 2005, the final issue must have been 2008/09. At this time Esquire withdrew from the Japanese publishing market and publication seized.
Whether the "new" LAST has anything in common with the "old" LAST, I wouldn't know. I have never seen the new one and, as I cannot read Japanese, I have no idea, whether or not members of the former magazine do work for the new one.
