Newtype USA Celebrates Its Second Anniversary

Date: Monday October 18th 2004 [18:04] | Posted By: Joe

The good folk at Newtype USA have sent us a press release regarding their second anniversary. To celebrate the popular anime magazine will bring back it's free DVD insert, which became a subscriber only bonus item. We've heard that Newtype USA stopped the free DVD due to retail issues, original store clerks removed the free DVD to pass on to friends, this in turn meant that the opened issue could not be sold. It seems that the people at Newtype have been listening to their readers. We welcome the return of the DVD since it means more free anime! ^_^
Full Story
Press release as follows:

Newtype USA celebrates its second anniversary with the return of the BONUS DVD in newsstand issues! Plus: The top 25 anime of all time, voted on by the readers of Newtype USA!

HOUSTON, October 18, 2004—Due to popular demand, Newtype USA will once again include a bonus DVD in every newsstand issue. The return of the fan-favorite disc insert, which was announced today by Newtype USA publisher John Ledford, will begin with the November 2004 issue, just in time to celebrate the second anniversary of the leading anime and manga publication in the English-speaking world.

The DVD insert became a subscriber-only premium in August 2004, after which fans and select retailers rallied to request its return to newsstand issues. "We listened to our loyal readers, who we want to reward with the very best anime magazine, including the incredibly popular DVD insert," Ledford says. "In fact, we're pushing ourselves to pack even more episodes and extras on every bonus DVD!" The November DVD has full episodes from two highly anticipated shows, D•N•Angel and Petite Princess Yucie, along with numerous trailers for other upcoming releases.

November 2004 also marks the second year of publication for Newtype USA, which continues to dominate the market as the top-selling anime magazine in the English-speaking world. To commemorate this momentous milestone, Newtype USA will publish a reader-voted awards feature highlighting the top 25 anime of all time, compiled from over 11,500 votes sent in by readers and collected at anime conventions. "Newtype USA readers are the ultimate anime fans, so it's only fitting that they get to select the best anime of all time," says editor in chief Gary Steinman. "The final list has plenty of surprises; I'm sure it's something anime fans will be debating for years. You don't want to miss this issue!"


Newtype USA Vol. 3, Issue 11 will be available Nov. 1, 2004 for $12.98. Subscriptions are also available for $89.95 for 12 issues at www.newtype-usa.com.
