    Default The death of Anime Insider

    Just recently, I was informed that my favorite, cheap, grand anime magazine that I've come to love since Newtype USA crashed.... Is discontinuing publication.

    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news...er-eight-years

    This sucks. Now I have to subscribe to Otaku USA, and that's probably going to crash.... This really sucks. It is a sad day ladies and gentleman.

    Let the mourning begin. T_T

    I would shed a tear of this; however I more or less saw this one coming when Newtype USA was cancelled. It took a little longer than I thought it would, but I wasn't holding my breath for the other anime magazines to hold their own in our sadly pinned-down economy.

    Thankfully, Newtype Japan is still going strong. So, for those of you that're depressed over this recent cancellation, you can always learn Japanese, order Newtype from Japan and then you can have fresh access to all the hardcore anime info you want again. ^^

    They should continue an on-line edition.

    Its too bad you seem to need a degree in journalism and published work to get anywhere.

    Lol, that's what my friends were saying. "learn Japanese or just read about new stuff online. But there's more stuff online I'd rather be doing than just reading. That's what paper is for. =/

    Wow. That's sad to hear. I have pretty much every issue of Anime Insider. I have been collecting and reading the magazine for years now. I used to read Animerica with it, but it got shut down. I only have a few issues of Newtype USA and just started Otaku USA (I started collecting when the price went down).

    Funny thing is, I almost missed the second to last issue of Anime Insider (I managed to skip a month by accident for some reason), but found it just as Barnes and Noble was getting rid of them all. Now I have them all.

    *hugs large pile of magazines*
    This is my war face.

    This is what happens to trolls who mess with me.

    Lol, let's just hope Otaku USA doesn't suffer the same fate as the rest of those magazines. >_<

    Pretty much my sentiments.

    I just . . . just started reading this magazine. And it's the only one that comes to stores around here

    Guess I'll just hang on to my one, lonely little copy.

    With the economy the way it is, and the way printed media is going (down the drain thanks to the net), I knew there'd be a host of magazines and newspapers that went under. But I at least thought that those snuggled up in their little niche corners would be okay. Guess not.

    What!? No! I can't believe this. I loved that magazine it was affordable. The only other one I've seen is otaku usa, I think. And that was about 13 dollars. My parents wont let me pay that much for just a magazine, lol.

    Otaku USA is a Newtype rip off, but I kinda like it. The problem is the extra content on the site. I would just publish it in the 'zine instead of putting it on the site.

    AI was bound to die. They really didn't do much and the only sections worthy of praise were the fan mail section and the new manga and anime licenses section.

    Bad? No way, if it wasn't like that, anyone who knew how to write would be spewing out their worthless opinions at every opportune moment!! Just like....a forum.

    That could be what happens, but that's not what I had in mind. I would still expect some type of educational or professional background to get into the field.

    Here's my example - I have a B.A. in Political Science. I can write well, and do research. I should be able to be a journalist or columnist. Maybe I shouldn't be able to write for Maximum PC, but why not Newsweek or something like that?

    Why not have an ASE certified mechanic writing in Car and Driver?

    Any of us could start an e-zine, but it's not the same.

    My friends and I saw it coming. We wished it wouldn't happen but we knew wishing wasn't enough.
    On this day of days, most epic and prideful, you were born 15 whole American years ago!
    Through the odds and by doing the impossible, you beat out hundreds of thousands of siblings in the great sperm race for the coveted egg.
    Probably via hax.
    Regardless! You won!
    So remember, whenever someone picks on you or calls you weak or small.
    Just remind them that you beat out a few hundred thousand other wimps.

    And the grand prize was not dying!
