Anime V - New Video Magazine, Published by Gakken Co., Ltd. (学習研究社) Consisting of 140 pages (including the front & back covers), #5 May 1990 (Vol. 53).

Sadly this is the only Anime magazine I still own from May 1990, so lets see what LaserDiscs
and VHS video tapes were in focus at this time, what OVA's were sharp and pleasing to the eye!

This short pictorial introduction is used as an example to briefly show you the contents and style of this Japanese Anime Magazine “Anime V ”, it is not intended as full digital copy, but a historical glimpse.
