INSiGHT: MyM Magazine: Issue 68 (Review) on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Thanks to people like Jessica Nigri, cosplayers have gone from being nameless folk who recreate their favourite characters as quasi-celebrities in their own right. This month one of the biggest cosplayers in the world - Yaya Han - graces the front cover of this month's MyM Magazine, along with a huge interview. Yaya has been part of the scene for 18 years and talks about her history, inspiration, materials, and her point of view on the darker sides of the hobby - the bullying and the trolls. She isn't the only cosplayer front and centre in this month's issue, either, with some shots of cosplayers from recent events, along with interviews with some lesser known cosplayers, too.

On the articles and features front, there are plenty of interviews with a varied group of individuals to enjoy this month. One of the most influential musicians drops by for a chat as legendary composer Philip Glass talks about his history and his latest work on Jane, crafting a rich orchestral score for this documentary of Jane Goodall. Atsuko Hirayanagi chats about turning the short film Oh Lucy! into a full movie, starring Shinobu Terajima and Josh Hartnett, her thoughts on the state of Japanese cinema today, and her next works.

Outside of interviews, readers can look forward to a glimpse into what new anime is on the horizon, with the latest new seasons of anime dropping in Japan. Also, with Christmas creeping up, MyM gives a gift guide for every nerd in your life. For the Otaku out there, get them a Japanese snack box subscription; for the Jedi, there's the new Sphero BB8; if you want to spend BIG, then there are dragon head trophy plaques to mount on the wall from Dungeon & Dragons. The issue has many, many more, too.

Onto the reviews and previews… This is another issue with no gaming reviews this month, but some previews of big upcoming games, like the remake of Secret of Mana, at least. Anime fans can look forward to another great month of UK releases, including the long awaited Dragon Ball Super Season 1 Part 1 from Manga Entertainment, All the Anime's A Silent Voice (also reviewed on DVD here) and Girls und Panzer: Der Film from MVM.

All of this, along with tons more articles and features, including a look at the secret origin of the Transformers, an interview with actor Paul Anderson about hit show Peaky Blinders, movie and comic reviews, and so much more. MyM Magazine 68 is available now from all good retailers.
