Issue 33 of MyM magazine featuring our massive 2015 preview is out now!

Issue 33 of MyM, the official magazine of MCM Expo Group, is out now! As 2014 draws to a close the team shakes the world’s largest Magic 8ball to give you a sneak peek at everything great heading your way in the New Year! On top of that we talk to the stars of Netflix’s $90m epic Marco Polo, hear about Meryl Streep’s  near-death experience in Disney’s Into The Woods and chat to anime masters Mizuho Nishikubo and Shinichiro Watanabe about their latest works.

How would you describe MyM? Futuristic? Dandy? Opinionated? Fashionable? Villainous? While that last one seems a bit harsh, this month we have to admit we’re all of those things…

Futuristic, you say? Not since Marty McFly jumped into a DeLorean and headed for a place that doesn’t need roads has the future looked so amazing.

Having rounded up the best 2014 had to offer last issue, this month our top-notch reviewers highlight everything that’s unmissable in the year ahead (see page 17). From a major rift in the Marvel universe to the best-looking Terminator film of this generation, via Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul and a Batman videogame back in the hands of developers Rocksteady. The UK’s major anime distributors – including new boys Animatsu – also drop by to share their plans for 2015 (see page 23).

As for dandy – well, things don’t come any dandier than Shinichiro Watanabe, who has spoiled us recently with not one, but two new shows! We talk Terror In Resonance and Space Dandy with the Cowboy Bebop creator (see page 70). It also doesn’t get any more opinionated than our huge selection of reviews – covering manga (page 36), videogames (page 46), anime (page 59) and movies (page 74).

As ever, Granny Gertrude and Saoirse Clohessy make sure we’re kitted out in cool cosplay and more fashionable than a model stepping onto a catwalk – have you ever seen Kate Moss wear an Attack On Titan scarf?

Are we really villainous, though? Well, our countdown of the top 10 videogame baddies (see page 34) has all the psychopaths and killer clowns you need to keep you awake at night. Plus, you can’t see the really sinister grin we’re pulling right now. Enjoy!

Netflix’s has gambled $90m on an epic story featuring Italy’s greatest explorer. MyM relived the adventures with Marco himself (Lorenzo Richelmy), Kublai Khan (Benedict Wong) and creator John Fusco.

A child’s-eye view of Japan’s occupation after WWII, acclaimed new movie Giovanni’s Island is guaranteed to tug the heartstrings. Tom Arden talks with the film’s director, Mizuho Nishikubo.

John Glynn counts down the top 10 baddies ever to show their twisted pixels in the world of videogaming.

Any new series helmed by Shinichiro Watanabe is a big deal, so to get Space Dandy and Terror In Resonance in quick succession is a treat indeed. Andy Hanley chats with the man himself to find out more.

Disney’s latest musical shuns the family Frozen vibe and turns to the dark side. Maybe that’s why James Corden thought he was watching Meryl Streep die for real!

Including a cracking Attack On Titan/Marvel crossover, a new player in the UK anime market and all the highlights from MCM Birmingham Comic Con.

Our man on Planet Japan savours the sea bream in Matsuyama and enjoys the artistry of a very special Gunpla.

From a robot that cleans up after you to a Halo weapon so detailed it probably fires real plasma, this month’s Goodies are not to be missed.

This month sees Granny Gertrude check out the EuroCosplay Judges’ Award winners, complete with natty posters, while Katharine Byrne sits down with bunny-loving American cosplayer Havenaims.

It’s all about warming winter wear this issue, as Saoirse Clohessy scours the internet for clothes to keep us both snugly and stylish during the cold snap. An Attack On Titan scarf? Hell yeah!

A bumper issue of games this month, headlined by our reviews of Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMIX and Pokémon: Alpha Sapphire/Omega Ruby. We’ve also got word on Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Digimon All-Star Rumble, Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F 2nd, Persona Q: Shadow Of The Labyrinth, Tears To Tiara II, Far Cry 4, World Of Warcraft: Warlords Of Draenor and loads and loads more.

We review a trio of very different movies in the shape of Giovanni’s Island, Naruto: Blood Prison and Patema Inverted, while series catching our critical eye this month include misfit comedy Watamote, Kabukimonogatari, Blast Of Tempest Part 2, the latest (non-filler!) instalment of Naruto Shippuden and the grand finale of the original Dragon Ball.

Ian Wolf suits up for time-bending sci-fi All You Need Is Kill, goes even further back in time with Shojo Beat title Yukarism, admires the fine brushwork of Barakamon and gets all meta with Satoshi Kon’s unfinished Opus.

From behind the scenes at Ghibli in The Kingdom Of Dreams And Madness, via Pokémon, Penguins, Hobbits and Stephen Hawking, there’s something for everyone in this month’s movie reviews.
