It’s magazine time! We’ve got a great issue of the Dee Dee Zine for your reading pleasure, right on Christmas Eve. And, to celebrate the first full year where the magazine has been in production, we’ve also got a special discount, to help everyone fill in their collections!

The Dee Dee Zine is a magazine for people who love games, music, film and art from Asia and independent artists. Every month we produce a magazine filled with essays and culture.

In the December 2022 magazine:

– On AI image generation and its relationship to otaku culture
– Interviews with two prolific and prominent indie VN developer/publishers
– A feature on the writings of Kenzaburō Ōe
– A series of Japan-themed business board games you must try
– Toradora – the best anime to watch at Christmas
– More! Much more!

We also have plenty of puzzles – a crossword to test your knowledge of all things Japan (this month it’s a special themed crossword, looking back at the JRPGs of 2022!), a sudoku and a nonogram. There’s a comic and story featuring Dee Dee & her friends, as well as a summary of the upcoming games for the month, photography, a story featuring one of our mascots, and more!

Don’t forget, if you would like to subscribe to the magazine, you can support us on Patreon here. Patreon backers get the magazine delivered to their inbox every month, and at any amount pledged (so you can be a subscriber for as little as $1/month!).

Special Christmas Discount!

We also wanted to do something special for all of our readers this Christmas. It is the first year where the Dee Dee Zine has been in production for the full 12 months, and that’s quite the achievement in the modern era, where magazines are seen as such an indulgence. It’s certainly a labour of passion for us, and we’re thrilled that we’ve been able to keep it going.

As such, until January 2, you can celebrate Christmas with us and get 50% off the Dee Dee Zines. This discount applies to as many magazines as you’d like to buy, so you can grab as many back issues as you’d like with this steep discount. All you need to do is input the code MERRYXMASALL at checkout. Boom! Instant 50% off the cart.

We really hope that you’ve enjoyed reading the Dee Dee Zine this year. It is a big part of what differentiates us among gaming publications, and we’ve got big plans for it in the year ahead.

Merry Christmas, everyone!
