4-0 out of 5 stars Fun (and funny) stuff!
I've read several anime publications, and this one is my favorite. Not only is it a good news bulletin of upcoming DVD releases, manga, game, and toy news, I enjoy the injokes built into the magazine by the editing staff. I like the sort of smarty-pants style the articles are written in--this staff is obviously made up of die hard anime fans who love their work, but it's written with an eye to the beginning fan as well. The Battle Royale feature is what made me pick up the mag in the first place! Totally fun. Take this to your local coffeehouse, sit and read in the corner and snicker to yourself; that's my favorite way to read it!

5-0 out of 5 stars This mag's got it all!
This magazine's got something for everyone, whether you're new to anime or are a long-time fan. Besides simply reviewing and covering the latest anime news and shows, however, they cram a lot of hilarious and creative articles into the mix, making for eclectic but fun sections, like cool anime deaths and battle royals. They've got a good mix with the regular features too, like showing new anime merchandise for me to buy, or cosplay photos and lessons on Japanese culture and interviews! My favorite part is their off-the-wall humor, and reading their captions and funny word balloons alone is worth my money (check out the other mags' prices!). These guys not only know their stuff, but love it, too-and they make me and all my friends rediscover our love for anime with every fun new issue.

It's a great magazine for any type of anime fan. Whether you are just getting into it, or have already reached obsession levels. It give you plenty of information on not only Anime that is being released here in the US, but what's hot in Japan too. If your looking for a new series to get into, then this magazine is a great one to pick up, it can probably suggest several an issue.

5-0 out of 5 stars Way cool!
This magazine is amazingly funny, and I never can wait for the next issue to come out. It has a lot of pictures, and many descriptions too. It has a section that has a picture of what a show would look like if it were manga! It also has manga samples in the magazine. I love this magazine, and I think you should buy it. I mean, look at the price! Oh, but be warned. This magazine has some curse words so I don't suggest it for kids under 10. The words do add to a lot of the humor, though.

I have to get my anime fix, and this is how I get it. I spend ten bucks a month on NT for serious anime reviews, and this for the sheer hilarity. Their little bubble captions, and how they cleverly weave humor into their magazine, and it is done with a bang. I was also very impresssed at how much they told me about what was coming out when. They gave a complete list of EVERY manga, DVD, and game coming out in the following consecutive months, and had nice reviews (I bought Technolyze by strong recommendations from both NT and AI), written in. Very funny, and kept me laughing for a long time. Even my 12-year-old sister read it and liked it! Highly recommended by the biggest tight wad in anime. And that's really saying something. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Male-oriented, but still OK
As far as anime magazines in the U.S. go, Newtype is pretty good. The news & newtype section has introduced me to many great anime series I'd have never considered watching had I not read it *cough*s-CRY-ed*cough*, and it's always nice to get the DVD or two and check out some new series. The articles have a slight tendancy towards sounding like ads, but if you can get over that, it's OK. There are a lot of ads, which can be helpful if you're looking for places to buy the latest anime merchandise, but otherwise they're like popup ads - annoying, always there, and impossible to get rid of (unless you want to cut up the magazine).
To top it off, the magazine is obviously male-oriented. I don't reccomend it to female otakus at all. Guys would probably like it, but I'm not a guy, so I really can't tell you...
However, compared to the other U.S. anime magazines, newtype is big, has great bonus items, and has a lot of info on non-mainstream anime.
Overall, I'd like to give it about 3.5 stars, but since I can only do 3 or 4, I rounded up. Hope this helps you in deciding whether or not to get it, in any case...

3-0 out of 5 stars Another language version Newtype, Newtype USA
This is an animation magazine based on Japanese animation.
It offers latest news on new animation titles and releases.
But some of its articles are some what pointless to animation fan readers (Although some times the game and the J-pop may be related to some animation, like video game reviews and J-Pop related articles,) I find it that the latest news on new animation airing at Japan is sometimes too slow. The magazine comes with a free a DVD insert (usually from ADV), a poster, centerfold and eight postcards attached to the agazine. The centerfolds are always (except once) have been a female character. Although I am a guy, I think they should insert some male characters for female readers.

I luv it even thougth i never read it its that good

5-0 out of 5 stars The best magazine
Newtype USA is the best magazine for any anime fan. It has tons of information on new shows coming out great reviews, and great contests. It also has tons of extras lik a free dvd,poster,centerfold,manga,and stickers. The magazine may be a little expensive,but its worth it. Any anime fan should get this magazine. If you dont get it than your not really an anime fan.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Anime Mag
Best US anime magazine. I've read other reviews saying that it fails to deliver in comparison to the Japanese version of Newtype --I have never read the Japanese version so I can't comment-- however Newtype USA magazine is the best source for anime here in the US. The magazine is packed with goodies. I have read others magazines, like Animerica(mediocre), and to be honest they do not measure up to the quality and fullness of Newtype. I like the fact that every issue includes a DVD featuring an upcoming episode of certain series, which varies from month to month, as well as previews and trailers of upcoming releases. Also included are either a poster with a centerfold and stickers, or a poster, postcards and a centerfold, and so on. The quality of the images and the magazine itself is superb; each month's cover is unique in its class. The only downside that I think everyone will agree on is the price; but if we compare the value of what you get with Newtype versus other magazines out there that give you next to nothing for the same price, Newtype definitely takes the lead. Anime fans rejoice for we have a good source of anime news! ... Read more
