INSiGHT: NEO Magazine: Issue 180 (Review) on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

For issue number 180 of NEO Magazine, the dual-cover format returns, with the main side showing an in-depth look at the magical girl trope through the Battle Girl High School series, a feature combining power-lifting and Kawaii imagery, and a writer's verdict on two new dubious anime shows; Banana Fish and Happy Sugar Life. On the reverse of the magazine is a detailed look into the newest entry into the Valkyria Chronicles games, with its fourth entry, and a quick catch-up of the previous titles.

Continuing with games, there are reviews aplenty, including the Shenmue I & II collection, Valkyria Chronicles 4 and SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy, as well as a piece on Bandai Namco's future projects, including SoulCalibur VI, and the new One Piece and Jump Force games. Manga School is in session with tips on how to draw a wizarding student, and a look at popular magazine Comic Cune. An interview with UK-based artist Snacky Boy details his inspirations and showcases some of his fine work.

Big features this month include a look into the highly popular Yuri!!! On Ice show and how it gained its enormous popularity, a screenshot into the festivities of Japan's summer cultures, and a photography special from MCM Manchester's Comic-Con.

Capping off Issue 180 is a film review for Jackie Chan classic City Hunter as it makes its way to Blu-ray, and a manga extract of Witchmarked, by Irina Richards. NEO Magazine Issue 180 is available now from all good retailers.
