April 1990 Pt.4 Animedia Magazine

From this Second magazine example I will endeavour use this to briefly show you the contents and style as a pictorial comment on the Japanese Anime Magazine “Animedia”.

Animedia First Published in July 1981 by Gakken Co., Ltd. Consisting of 152 pages (including the front & back covers), #4 April 1990 (No 106). 500 Yen.

This was one of my monthly ways to get news on Anime. On the whole it does look like Animedia focuses on TV shows.

 Front cover -Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water.

 Girls & Boys!

Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water looks to be very popular, with quite some interest for 'Patabor' too.

[Note: I have left out most of the adverts from this April's Japanese Magazines, they will be in the end of the month's review.]

[Note:  Not being able myself to translate the Japanese details of the contents of this magazine, what you get is solely from the few English words and the recognizable animation stills, and illustrations and artwork, (and that just suited me just fine back in the 1990's).]
