This the second cover for Maison Ikkoku.
Check out this months “From the Editor” page. Patrick Macias makes an appearance in the Contributors section.
My favorite part of this issue is the Anime Series Round Up. Goes over the differences from the Tenchi Muyo Series and OVA as well as the first full page of details about Neon Genesis Evangelion.
The Manga Video ad for Street Fighter shows to me that they had really high hopes for this series. I think they advertised this more than Ghost in the Shell.
VIZ should have stuck with their j-pop.com site as a content/news site. They still own the URL but it’s a redirect to the NEW PEOPLE theatre in San Fransisco.
Anime Direct’s Christmas ad is pure 90’s marketing to me.
ADV’s Christmas ad now has Battle Angel in English dub VHS format.
