March 1990 Pt.4 Newtype magazine.

Returning to the first example of a Japanese Anime Magazine from the 1990's at the price of 410 Yen its import at a cost of £7.99 then and at today's 2014 value (inflation) would be £15.38 is still costly, but the wealth of illustrations and full colour artwork and its diversity of information have stood the test of time..

'Newtype' - the moving pictures magazine'. Published monthly by Kadokawa Shoten. Consisting of 180 pages (including front & back covers), #3 March 1990.

Front cover.

Contents Page (just look at the variety of subjects). 

'Patlabor' had 3 articles featured in this month's Newtype magazine.

The Five Star Stories' – one of my all time favourite comic-books, still not read a translation to this day!!
