Protoculture and Animerica (they still around?) were from back in the days, 
they were good at the very beginning when internet wasn't around and sources 
were scarce.  Nowadays magazines are pretty much not needed, at least for 
the introduction of the latest shows, since one could watch it on the same 

The Eng. Newtype started a couple of years ago, but after several issues I 
was greatly disappointed since I thought it would be a word to word 
translation of the Jpn counterpart.  I still have like 30-40 sealed issues 
of the US. Newtype stacked somewhere , I don't know why I subscribed to them 

Back in the early 90's I read Animage, Animedia, and soetimes Newtype.  Now 
we have frequently updated official websites for every anime/drama on air 
(often interviews w/ seiyuu too), so...

I liked some contributors from Animerica Extra (forgot what's the new shoujo 
title) back then.
