100 pages (full color)


This issue of Anime News Network's Protoculture Addicts celebrates the 20th anniversary of the magazine with two articles retracing the history of both the Robotech franchise and the magazine itself (“20 Years of Protoculture”). It also introduces you to several anime series — with Anime Stories on Bartender, Darker Than Black, Kekkaishi, Kyoshiro & the Eternal Sky, Rocket Girls, and Soukou no Strain — and offers an interview with Tommy Yune (Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles) and a look at how Ryosuke Takahashi (Flag) sees war. As usual, it features a manga preview (Genshiken #9) as well as thematic articles introducing J-Pop artists (Puffy, Gackt) and reporting on the Fantasia Festival (Tekkon Kinkreet, Solid State Society). It also reviews lots of recent anime & manga-related products (22 anime Dvds, 12 manga) as well as analyses the latest news directly from the Anime News Network newsdesk! Protoculture Addicts is now 100-page and has an improved full-color layout, as well as a better printing quality. It's your best guide to anime culture!
