Of course the magazine includes articles about visual novels, manga, Japanese films and music, as well as profiles of well-known anime characters - all of this in a nice, climatic layout.

Published by Yokatta Company this magazine has now entered the UK market with an English language version. Issue #1 of Visual Scene is already available to purchase and covers folklore and ghosts as the publishers elaborate:

Enjoy! "
