Get Animated – The final letter from future shading curmudgeon Paul “Otaking” Johnson, only he was using a different nickname in 1995…
MegaByte – Sega Saturn had arrived in the UK, and Playstation was due along shortly. Gundam on the Playstation got 70%.
Short Cuts – A robot size chart. Pretty sure they have done this already.
One anime review. Arslan got 3 stars. This issue clearly came out during one of periodic stalls the UK anime market suffered.
In conclusion, if it wasn’t for the comics, this issue would have been pretty bad.
