Overdrive, the company that is exporting the Japanese cosplaying magazine Cosmode in English, has posted a preview of the digital version of the magazine. Unlike other Japanese magazines that have gone abroad by translating almost all the Japanese text into English, Overdrive's online Cosmode version will retain all the Japanese text; it will have a piece of English translation appear when the cursor hovers over a piece of Japanese text. The online preview demonstrates this "subtitled magazine" format with sample pages. It also shows the type of how-to tips, photo galleries, event reports, and other features that a typical issues contains.
A free preview issue will be released on April 25, and the first official issue will be released on May 25.
