NEO Magazine – Issue 219 – May 2022
English | 102 pages | pdf | 45.49 MB
WELCOME TO issue 219 of NEO Magazine! We have a great roundup of the latest titles coming your way to physical release in the UK this summer! Just head to page 008 to discover a treasure trove of anime, including some blockbuster hits, sci-fi shows, cute series, and more!
On page 015 we’re covering a big story in the news as Crunchyroll takes over Funimation’s library, and makes huge changes to its free to watch catalogue. What does this mean for you, and the future of streaming shows? Check out our piece, written by Andrew Osmond, to find out.
Over on page 058, Osmond tackles another big controversy in the anime world… in fact, a controversy of titanic proportions… Of course, I’m talking about Attack on Titan, whose Final Season has been extended and pushed back once again to 2023. It puts me in mind of our file names during particularly difficult deadlines, where the cover ends up being labelled CoverFINALfinalv5amendedREV2.pdf. Ah, the trauma. Elsewhere we have a fantastic interview with Shonen Knife veteran Naoko Yamano on page 040, and also a tribute to the late, great, Jimmy Wang Yu on page 070, both by the very excellent David West!
Until next time!
