NEO Issue #102 OUT NOW Featuring Yoshihiro Nishimura – Exclusive Cover Page The GazettE

On sale from 6th September 2012! 

Ruki, the vocalist behind Japan’s phenomenal rock outfit the GazettE, becomes the first musician to ever feature on the cover of the UK’s longest running Asian pop culture publication, NEO magazine! Its 102nd issue, out now, celebrates the release of the band’s latest album DIVISION – their first under a British label – and is joined by an exclusive six-page feature on the group tipped to ignite a music revolution across Great Britain and Europe!

That’s not all! This month’s profile series focuses on director and special effects makeup gore-god Yoshihiro Nishimura (Tokyo Gore Police, Helldriver).

This issue also introduces Princess Resurrection, the girl who can bring you back from the dead – so you can work as her servant! Maybe the afterlife isn’t all it’s cracked up to be… find out in NEO’s mammoth six-page guide to Manga’s latest anime!

If princesses are your thing, get ready for this jelly; Matt Kamen joins Tsukimi and her bunch of otaku pals as they tackle the ‘Stylish’ of Tokyo, as well as a brazen transvestite in Princess Jellyfish. Plus! With the second series of Clannad rolling out on DVD, Matt Kamen also delves into the world of the Japanese dating sims and visual novels that inspired the franchise.

For those looking for something a bit more masculine, David West not only fights his way through the blood and guts of the new movie adaptation of Berserk, but also writes a four-page extravaganza on the heroines of Japan’s arse-kicking, sword-swinging chanbara genre. Then, NEO’s man in Japan, Daniel Robson, continues the feminist theme by examining the sexualisation of women in modern day Japan, from AKB48 to the country’s manga magazines, and everything in-between.

NEO issue # 102 comes with double cover
