When I first went through the Newtype USA, I only looked at the first half because I assumed the rest was american-centric/fan content which wasn’t long-term relevant news for my purposes. It turns out I missed a very important feature on how different animators/art people handle their craft. This is a grab bag of all those features on all those people from previously-scanned magazines.
Articles I had scanned and lying around since forever ago, but never bothered to upload since I’m missing the issues containing steps 1 and 7 and stopped collecting the magazines a while ago. I’m uploading them now.
With the April 2009 issue, I’m officially done going through the entire 67-issue run of Anime Insider. I uploaded everything I found interesting, focusing in particular on interviews with people involved directly in anime and manga production. I’m keeping the magazines in case I ever need to rescan anything or double-check contents, but this’ll probably be the end of me scanning articles for a few months.
Anime insider ran for 67 issues and ended in April of 2009, but issue 68 *was* planned (including the cover below and an interview with Takashi Miike), but the magazine was cancelled before that could be published.
