OTAKU MAGAZINE - Sapporo Edition


At the end of 2012, Otaku Magazine is ready to return into the world of the living, with freshly acquired powers!
It should be no mystery that Otaku Magazine is Cosplay Gen's data mining big brother and mischievous kin. Otaku Magazine was summoned from the depths of fandom and fan culture to redistribute a wealth of new materials, strange and mind-bending encounters with the latest pop artifacts and eye-popping otaku community totems and rituals. After an artsy showcase in Sapporo/Hokkaido, Otaku Magazine is ready to share with you everything that you might have missed.
Our main health-inducing ingredients range from Elegant Gothic Lolita fashions to Ukiyo-e style rendition of gaming heroes and toy character anatomy classes with “Moist”. We also have some superhero crossover fusion artwork, combining the best of both worlds. In partnership with Tokyo Design Festa we will walk you through multiple booths and event hideaways. From interviews with artists-in-residence at S-AIR, to reviewing the pre-Sapporo Biennale, we have got recommendations about music, toyz and a fresh bundle of indie games. We’ve got superhero explosive splatter art by “Bombattack” and a tribute article dedicated to Satoshi Kon. Also don’t forget the exclusive interview with Crypton Future Media, the creatures of Hatsune Miku and our Sapporo special with young artists from the region.
Below are just some amazing previews and some introductions of our features, until we'll launch the new issue of Otaku Magazine in December, every week we'll cover more features preview about this section. So, please stay/keep tune/calm or/and follow us in social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Deviant Art).
