INSiGHT: NEO Magazine: Issue 186 (Review) on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

For issue 186 of NEO Magazine there is an extended look at the newest anime series from Hiromu Arkawa, Silver Spoon. Created from the same mind behind the Fullmetal Alchemist franchise, Silver Spoon centres round Japanese agriculture and farming, taking a 'Fish out of Water' main character into the unflinching harshness of land cultivation. On the flipside of the issue, a special article celebrates the 20th year commemoration of Japanese Horror Classic The Ring and its subsequent sequels, highlighting the release of its Blu-ray box-set.

Elsewhere in the issue, Anime and Hollywood examines the recent success of Alita: Battle Angel and what it could mean for live action anime adaptations going forward. NEO Magazine goes beyond the home with Sakura Season, which celebrates the first Cherry Blossom bloom in Japan, a ringside view of a no-holds-barred Frontier Martial-Arts Wrestling event, and a manga extract for Outdoors; a unique style that uses imagery more than characters to overwhelm the reader's senses and tell its tale.

Tickling the taste-buds this month is a feature on Bento Boxes; special lunch gatherings that are often displayed and laid out in specific and unusual designs. Ranging from small rabbit and pig rice ball designs, to a small monkey face made entirely from ham, beef, and turkey. Delectable in another way is the cosplay section, specifically focused on one artist and her range of Harley Quinn costumes and setups.

NEO Magazine Issue 186 is available now from all good magazine retailers.
