'Newtype' #7 July 1990. - the moving pictures magazine'. Published monthly by Kadokawa Shoten. Consisting of 180 pages (including front & back covers), 410 Yen.

  1. Cool stuff! I recognise the cover so I think I might have it knocking about somewhere.

    1. Rick, you should show that old stuff the light of day.... Look it out sometime Lad.

  2. Very interesting scans here! I got rid of all my old Newtypes etc. years ago...

    1. I only collected them for about 5 years, back then. A few are missing.
