The new issue of Beckett Anime For Girls includes an exclusive sneak peak at the second volume in Courtney Love's Princess Ai manga series, which is published by Tokyopop. The first volume in the gothic shoujo manga series co-created by Love and D.J. Milky was published last summer and did extremely well. The second volume, Princess Ai: Lumination, which also features character designs by Ai Yazawa (Paradise Kiss), is due out next month.
In addition to the Princess Ai: Lumination preview, the 74-page issue of Beckett Anime for Girls includes features on '20 Ways to Meet Guys and Girls Who Are Into Anime' and 'Anime Goes Hollywood' -- a lighthearted look at which tinseltown stars would make perfect casting choices for live action adaptations of popular anime and manga properties. In addition to Beckett Anime For Girls, Beckett also publishes Yu-Gi-Oh! and Pokemon themed magazines as well as a new publication dedicated to Magic the Gathering.
