So I checked my email and apparently Tokyopop is making a free manga mag and sending it out to whoever wants it. I'll just quote it:

From the looks of it, it sounds like the old Tokyopop Sneaks that they had going on which you could pick up at Comic book stores, Tower Records, Suncoast, and I'm sure more.

Takuhai means "sent to your home." Very Happy

Irasshaimase means welcome. Usually used at stores, welcoming their customers.

Click on the link slickwataris left in his first post. It tells you what you get for free. I hope that helps. Wink

Well you could always just sign up for it and when it comes in you can find out exactly what it is. I mean it is free, so what do you have to lose.

I think it just signs you up for their updates through email. It's basically just a newsletter every month with whats coming out and "spotlights." I don't know if you'll get anything through the real mail that's junk.

I've just signed up for the magazine, and it lead me back to the tokyopop main page. I hope I won't get spam through this.

It has previews from some of their newest titles. It gives you a brief look at what it's about.
