UK’s MyM Magazine Issue 1 with Vic Mignogna and Aaron Dismuke

The first issue of the British manga, anime, movies and games magazine MyM (read My Em) is already out all over the country. The publisher claims that this printed edition can be found practically everywhere. Even if its not there in the first place, MyM can be purchased from the local stand.

Although most subpages of the official website of the magazine show this sign:

“Apologies, but no results were found for the requested archive. Perhaps searching will help find a related post.”

Its Facebook and Twitter are flooded with various information and news! Here is the main info, shared with the fans:

The cover feature (written by Matt Kamen) previews Tales Of Graces F and Tales Of Xillia, and well as giving readers and exclusive interview with Hideo Baba. Anime-wise there’s features on K-On and Bleach (on Blu-ray) and well as another exclusive interview with the two lead Fullmetal Alchemist voice-actors, Vic Mignogna and Aaron Dismuke. Anime reviews of more new and forthcoming DVDs take place later in the magazine. This launch issue also sports a ‘flip-cover’. The magazine is flipped over to give readers a Lollipop Chainsaw exclusive hands-on written by games journalist Vikki Blake. Cosplay is provided with an unprecedented degree of coverage. Manga and comics are reviewed too. MyM is front-loaded with a nice, varied news-section, and finished off with a very original section called MyMag, where readers can write in, post comments, send drawings, submit their own reviews for publication, or basically anything to do with MyM’s area of coverage they feel they want to put out there.

The highlight: Edward and Alphonse Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist’s English voice actors Vic Mignogna and Aaron Dismuke gave an interview for the edition. Special information on K-ON! and Bleach: Fade to Black can also be found within the pages of the first issue of this new magazine.

I honestly don’t think that we need a magazine,other than the ones that actually publish manga. This feels like an attempt to make US and British teams, working in the manga/comic/anime business better known, which I barely care about…

Just what the UK needs; another serialization that feels compelled to provide some publicity for shows already rolling in money, whilst weaboos swam the Expos. Mention the word Studio SHAFT or JC Staff and the best reply you get is “Oh I guess they’re some anime company”. They need to start publishing on topics other than the usual shounen muppet magnets and actually get the recent anime series, seasons and information across. I don’t see this being of any benefit.
