Newtype Magazine has announced their newest issue with this press release.


IN THIS MONTH'S ISSUE OF NEWTYPE ONLINE (www.Newtype-net.com)

WHAT'S BEHIND THE BARREL?

In answer to worldwide interest, we begin a regular feature on 'For the Barrel', the inspired remake of the first 'Gundam' story, based on Yoshiyuki Tomino's original trilogy of novels. Author Gichi Ohtsuka will reveal true stories from behind the scenes of FTB, and is set to respond directly to fans around the world. (See Special Topics)

ONE VOICE…

Also in response to requests from fans all over the globe, a message from voice actress/singer Megumi Hayashibara (who played the original
Japanese voices for the beautiful Rei Ayanami in 'Evangelion') appears in this month's Confidential File. See also 'From Editor's Room' (in NT Forum) for a note on how this was arranged.

HOW TO MAKE IT AS A MANGA ARTIST...

Aoi Nanase, creator of the popular manga serial 'ANGEL/DUST' for Newtype magazine, talks about her early struggle. These extracts from her exclusive interview should strike a chord with would-be manga artists all around the world. (See Special Topics)

FREE STUFF!

This month's competition prize is an autographed limited edition CD from Newtype's 15th Anniversary Celebration. Find out how to enter in 'From Editors' Room' (in NT Forum).


AND IN NEXT MONTH'S ISSUE

"Oh My Goddess!" Special big features! (knock on wood....)

Forget that annoying translation time-lag! We are already working on the November edition, and aim to bring each issue of Newtype to you in record time. Biggest feature this time around, of course, is our special overview of the anime of Kosuke Fujishima, focussing on the 'Oh My Goddess!' movie, and an exclusive interview with Fujishima himself.

But we can't fit all of it on one little website, not unless I can convince my boss there really an interest abroad. (To tell the truth, I'm in charge of the Fujishima feature, so I'm ready to protest ^_^). So I need your support; please send your comments to our 'Other Questions and Opinions' section, and vote for Fujishima in our 'Next Issue' questionnaire.
