Question about Maxell My1 tapes

Recently I bought a demo tape of a Japanese band that was listed as an original copy from 1986. However, when the tape arrived it was a Maxell My1. I did some research on vintagecassettes.com and the earliest record of a My1 style tape was in 1997. The specific tape looks like it may be from 2000-2001 based on the packaging artwork and the art on the tape.

Does anyone know when the earliest Maxell My1 style tapes were available in Japan?

I attached an image of the tape I received and here is a link to the version I suspect it is: http://vintagecassettes.com/maxell/m.../jmaxell00.htm

Thank you!
