PiQ. What are your thoughts on it?

http://revver.com/video/736668/animeroot-presents-piq-magazine-burning-001/
>>
Does it cost ten bucks like America Newtype?
>>
>IS ANIME DEAD
>>
Better than OtakuUsa?
>>
I can get all my anime news for free on them thar interwebs.
>>
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA OH WOW.
>>
I FUCKING LOVE THE OP
>>
Lol, periodicals.
>>
But its more fun to fap over glossies than a glowing screen.
>>
you fail

YOU FAIL AND YOU DESERVE TO BE BURNED

It doesn't cost what Newtype did.

It's also not an anime magazine. Like anime is a fraction of the actual content.
>>
>>10202624
I lol'd hard
>>
>Inside peeks
>Honey and Clover
>>
Appleseed? Talk about stepping out on the wrong foot.

I haven't read it, yet. I plan to eventually, but they really need to pick up on ORIGINAL CONTENT that NewType USA was lacking.

I don't mind articles about Naruto on CN, but have something like Pool Side Chats With ...Azuma Kiyohiko or something to balance out the fanbase.
>>
>>10202798

arent there like, 100 magazines that do the exact thing?
>>
>>10202648
10 bucks? It cost like $14 at the local bookstore.
Suncoast was selling it for $18..
>>
>>10202866
HAHA PERIODICALS

Jesus man
>>
I chuckled that one of the cover headlines is "IS ANIME DEAD?"
>>
I'll die happy knowing that I will always be better then the fat ass in OP's video.
>>
>>10202624
Uhh, does that say "Avatar" on it under "Inside Peeks"?
>>
>>10202906
Yes. It also says Frisky Dingo near the bottom of that list
>>
>>10202906
>In addition to covering anime and manga, the magazine has expanded coverage of other subjects beyond those covered by Newtype USA, including U.S. comics, high tech gadgetry, U.S. TV shows, U.S. movies, and gaming.

This won't last longer than 6 issue.
>>
>>10202624
Looks too much like play magazine.
>>
They're probably going to cover the Dragonball movie. And the thought of that makes me RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE.
>>
"no. this magazine sucks. any magazine that puts battlestar galactica, terminator, and avatar the air bender and tries to mesh alittle bit of video games and anime its.. its just wrong. to go from a professional real news.. like news and article related and humongous pictures and great, great selection of anime stuff.
you fail.

you fail and you deserve to be burned.

so consequently, we at animeroot are gonna keep receiving this magazine every month until you guys gives us a refund. we are going to think of creative ways to BURN your magazine or destroy your magazine in whatever means possible. and, uh, on top of that we are going to be on the boards and flame flame your asses too. so. you better uuuh, take some action or.. you know, fix this problem.

so yea. on to the burning.."

>"WE'RE GONNA FLAME UR ASSEZ"
lol'd
>>
>take some action or.. you know, fix this problem.

...or uh. We'll do that thing we said we were gonna do! Like.. get rowdy ony our internet messageboards, or something.

RIGHT ON!

Haven't got my copy yet. Since I had 10 issues left on my subscription to Newtype, I'm supposed to be getting 20 issues of this. I'm gonna give it 2 or 3 issues to not be utter shit, after which I will cancel if it isn't substantially better than I expect it to be, and hopefully get some of my money back.

I'm not optimistic about it. Most of what I liked about Newtype was stuff that came over from the Japanese version. That and the DVD.

full version:

dear PiQ magazine,

i recently recieved your first issue for this month of march. and in the first page there was a little "new type subscribers i'm kinda
sorry kind of thing, i hope this magazine is better"

and i'm just going to flat out say it:

"no. this magazine sucks. any magazine that puts battlestar galactica, terminator, and avatar the air bender and tries to mesh alittle bit of video games and anime its.. its just wrong. to go from a professional real news.. like news and article related and humongous pictures and great, you know. great selection of anime stuff.
you fail.

you fail and you deserve to be burned.

Out of morbid curiousity what's ANN's reaction to this magazine?

Not that they care. They have Protoculture.
I haven't read them, but I hear they got good coverage if nothing else. But still, internet is free.
>>
>>10203180

Neutral at best, but leaning towards negative.

The general impression seems to be "I didn't pay for this and I'd rather just get my money back"
>>
>>10203090
Fucking lol'd.
>>
>So if PiQ does not reimburse us for our subscriptions, we all may want to consider getting together for a class-action lawsuit against this company.

Lol, serious business. Though I guess I'd be pissed too.
