Newtype USA has sent out a promotional PR with details about the table of contents of issue 1

Looking to stir up even more interest in Newtype USA, the ADV/NTUSA PR machine has sent out a press release detailing the contents of Newtype USA's first issue.

Readers may remember "For the Barrel," a serial novel based on Gundam that was printed in Newtype Magazine in 2000. A preview of "For the Barrel" was posted on the now defunct English Newtype website around the same time. "For the Barrel" is based on the Yoshiyuki Tomino's 3 Gundam novels (The novels differ significantly from the Gundam Anime in several key areas.)

The COVER STORY analyzes Mobile Suit Gundam Seed-characters, details of opposing armies, political alliances, mecha specs and insight from the director and producer.
