Newtype USA, the leading anime magazine in North America, has an exclusive first look at the brand-new Evangelion movies currently in production! Widely recognized as the greatest anime of all time, Neon Genesis Evangelion revolutionized the industry when it was first released in 1995 and has continued to influence almost every anime production in the decade since. Now, four new movies are in the works, promising to take the story in an entirely new direction-and only Newtype USA has the scoop! You simply cannot miss this special cover and in-depth feature!
December also means holiday shopping, and that goes double for obsessive anime fans. To make things easy for anime collectors (and their clueless loved ones), the editors of Newtype USA selected the top 12 essential shows released in 2006, along with 27 stocking stuffers sure to please any kind of fan.
