I am currently working on translating the notice in the final volume (11-1966) of the sudden termination of the magazine. I think I read somewhere else that it was ending because the TV series was ending. Yet, there was still an entire month to go, as the final episode was aired 12/31/1966. Yet, here, it says that the new magazine will contain Tezuka's longer manga. Still have a few paragraphs to go.

Pretty sure it says, ''electronic''. Something related to electricity.

:blush: 電子レンゾ
ELECTRONIC LENS? No, that would end with ス

Thanks, Bluebell1995! I have difficulty with some fonts. Typewritten, are usually ok, though.

電子レンジ = Microwave. Looks like you mistyped ジ as ゾ.

Apparently they were being sold as early as 1946.

According to Wikipedia "Amana's Radarange, introduced in 1967, was the first compact microwave oven made for home use." So units made for industrial or restaurant use might have been made earlier. I'm not sure about 1946, though the magnetron tube was invented a few years before that.
