Beckett Spotlight: Anime For Girls reaches a growing demographic of the Japanese anime world – girls!

DALLAS, TX – In Japan, the term Shojo (Shoujo) refers to an anime or manga (comic book) title geared towards female fans. Beckett Publications has been closely watching this fast-growing female market and is now ready to unleash its first “shojo” publication on newsstands - Beckett Spotlight: Anime For Girls.

Anime retailers as well as anime conventions around the world have reported a huge influx of females into the anime realm. Recently, more and more anime DVD and manga releases both in Japan and the United States have been targeting their products towards 12 to 20 year old females.

The magazine's cover features two characters from one of the hottest anime/manga stories on the planet, Inuyasha™. The romance between these two characters is one of the driving forces behind the series. Inside this issue readers learn more about these characters plus the Top 5 Hottest Guys of anime, the top anime girls of action, magic and high-tech, an anime character match-up with today's Hollywood hunks, anime horoscopes and much more.

Plus, this issue has an exclusive sneak peek at two hot new manga titles: TOKYOPOP's, Peach Fuzz and CPM Manga's, The World of Narue.
