We are very proud about the results of our new issue of Otaku MAG: Sapporo Edition! We worked for more than 9 months with a huge worldwide collaboration - that amounts more than 40 contributors - ranging from illustrators, curators, cultural workers, editorial & product designers, mangakas, toys designers, indie games developers to academic theoreticians and researchers of the otaku community.
Our main health-inducing ingredients range from Elegant Gothic Lolita fashions to Ukiyo-e style rendition of gaming heroes and toy character anatomy classes with “Moist”. We also have some superhero crossover fusion artwork, combining the best of both worlds. In partnership with Tokyo Design Festa we will walk you through multiple booths and event hideaways. From interviews with artists-in-residence at S-AIR, to reviewing the pre-Sapporo Biennale, we have got recommendations about music, toyz and a fresh bundle of indie games. We’ve got superhero explosive splatter art by “Bombattack” and a tribute article dedicated to Satoshi Kon. Also don’t forget the exclusive interview with Crypton Future Media, the creatures of Hatsune Miku and our Sapporo special with young artists from the region.
Otaku Magazine, The Sapporo Edition was printed in a limited edition (1000 copies only) with a special handmade aerodynamic packaging for protection and a love-bite from Dracula-land!
