NewWords Update

posted on 2005-11-12 23:57 EST by Christopher Macdonald
Kadokawa Shoten will publish NewWords starting November 25th.

Kadokawa refers to NewWords as "Newtype for Adults," and is publishing the new magazine in light of the maturing anime market. The publisher says that its contents will be not only about anime and games but also about other visual entertainment genres such as live-action films and even about adult life-styles.

The first issue will have a special feature article on new anime and live-action, films that will be released in 2006.

A Universal Media Disc of episode 1 of Blood+ will be included with the first issue.

Kojima Hideo, the director of the Metal Gear series, mentioned in his web log that he was writing an article for NewWords. It is unknown if the article will appear in the opening issue.

Please note, in our previous article about NewWords we wrote that the magazine was to be published on December 11th. This was incorrect. The publication date is November 25th. ANN apologizes for this error.

Thanks to Vitruvius for this item.
