I don't know if that means the "February" issue that comes out in
January or the "March" issue that actually comes out in February (what
is up with that anyway?).
ADV, who publishes the USA version of Newtype magazine, licenses the
name from Kadokawa Shoten, who publishes the original Japanese version
of Newtype. ADV seems to be planning to replace Newtype with a
different magazine, which begs the question of if ceasing Newtype USA
has to do with the license of the name itself. I hope it's more of as
licensing issue than it is problems from ADV. With them shutting down
the 24/7 channel version of The Anime Network and Anime ADVocates
still "under construction," it doesn't look too good simply from an
outside view to see these things happen in such close proximity of
Part of me is sad to see Newtype go. It is one of, if not the most
notable anime fandom magazines published in the US. The other part of
me is kind of meh. Newtype is still kind of expensive, especially
considering its target market. There's still other magazines like
Otaku USA and Protoculture Addicts to pick up the pace, but still, the
Gundam fanboy in me is sad at the loss of the name.
I wish ADV luck with the next magazine.
