The one place I have seen always having it in is surprising HMV 0_o
I never bought Neo because I already knew about anything covered in the magazine months in advance. I must say I am surprised at people's comments at what is being covered and the lack of Beez coverage. If no advertising is given, then the industry won't grow. I think it's kinda sick that manga is using this sort of tactic especially as Beez covers a part of the market manga won't normally touch. Maybe thier titles just arn't 'cool' enough.
Just brought the new neo and I am done with it now. Vampire Love Bud or whatever the stupid name for it is has the 10 year old girl in it in her underwear. I couldn't look at it or the strike wicthes one either on the bus because I was too embassed that manga has brought this pedo **** out over here. And the fact that neo are championing it makes it worse. And again witht the no beez reviews again. No house of 5 leaves review **** you neo
I am that we have enough fans to support somethinhg like Neo, but I find the content a bit shallow for what I am looking for.
However when I was first getting in to Anime about 10/11 years ago I would have loved to have something like Neo. I was desperate for every little scrap of anime information I could get my hands on. It was like I had just found this strange secret world that I wanted to get into, but information was hard to come by (we didnt have the internet).
I can remember being so excited the first time I went to a Borders. They had imported american mags and I would buy them and read them until they fell apart. The content of most of these was probably pretty shallow, but again it was all I had and it felt like I was suddenly being let in on this massve secret.
A few years after this I can remember me feeling like it was a 'big deal' to find a copy of Newtype Usa. I dont think I would rate it now.
What I am trying to say is that I dont really rate Neo, but I imagine if you were just getting into Anime it would be nice to know you were not crazy and alone.
