Newtype USA releases February issue

Newtype USA delivers yet another world exclusive!
First-ever cover story on fan-favorite Lagoon Engine Einsatz

Plus! Original artwork created solely for the magazine!

HOUSTON, January 31, 2005—Newtype USA gives its fans exactly what they've been demanding with our world-exclusive cover feature on Lagoon Engine Einsatz! The latest manga masterpiece from Yukiru Sugisaki (D•N•Angel), Einsatz has been running serially in the magazine since October 2004, when it debuted exclusively in the pages of NTUSA before it ever appeared in Japan. Now, after receiving hundreds of letters and emails begging for more details on this exciting project, NTUSA has managed to secure an original piece of art drawn just for the cover of the magazine, along with an exciting feature full of insight into the creative process of this legendary manga artist! Whether you're a Sugisaki devotee or an Einsatz newbie, you won't want to miss this highly collectible—and totally gorgeous—cover!

That's not the only sweet treat in the February issue. NTUSA also delivers some Valentine goodies with a roundup of anime's coolest couples, covering everything from sugary-sweet puppy love to the hottest threesome. The love continues with the latest in NTUSA's series of “Inside Studio” tours, this time with a visit to Studio Ghibli—the house that Miyazaki built. And just to sweeten things even further, NTUSA has a special treat for all the female anime fans: The Official Art of Saiyuki: Requiem!
