The Complicated Art
of Keeping It Simple

From the very cover we start this issue in Japan with the ever popular and talented REIKA; then we pass through Australia a bit with Darcy, after which we get to visit some of their neighbors in Malaysia with Angie and Ying Tze, not before going to Singapore with Xrystal.A couple of thousand miles to the left though, there’s Kamui in Germany, Sikay in France, Tennyo in Sweden, Julia Laurant in Denmark and, of course, Manuel D’Andrea in Italy. We stop in Europe to also take a closer look at events where brilliant people gather, starting with Otaku Festival 2013 in Romania, going to Japan Expo Paris 2013 in France and ending it with Hyper Japan 2013 in the UK. If you feel like getting some photo-shooting knowledge, we’re sharing with you some of the wise words of Chinese photographer 35Ryo, but if you prefer getting your hands dirtier than that, you can also learn how to use Worbla, unless you’re more interesting in the complex art of doing a simple cosplay. There’s a bunch of surprises in this issue that we’re looking to share with you, starting with the special packaging included, and also a poster with a message from possibly one of your favorite cosplayers! But make sure you get your hands on it fast, since there are only 1000 copies of this limited edition, so it might be gone before you know it!
