i have the very first issue and there really wasn't much in the magazine itself. everything that's pointed out in the mag is shown in detail on the dvd itself. i don't know how much the magazine's changed since the first issue, but going on the first issue alone, it was actually pretty decent. it's worth checking out at least once even if the price seems a bit steep at $10. but it sort balances out with NewType. NewType you get a mag ready to burst with content and a dvd. Anime Play you get a flimsy mag and a dvd ready to burst with content. a dvd mag is a nice idea that could work out pretty well if done right.
