One of the oldest still active diskmags strikes back with a new issue after a break of half a year. Nothing much has changed in this issue: There is still the same interface, just with a new comic-style title screen by TUHB's female member Bookie showing a couple of cats in a car and an austere background by editor Greftek. Content-wise, we have more Dutch articles than in the last issue, this making the TUHBzine #6 a more local magazine.

                Tanuki Studio Report #2

The international reader gets mainly average articles in an okay English and a simple writing style with a vast usage of smilies. Nothing is really surprising, but if you need some entertainment, just read the childish-funny Manga-related Tanuki Studio Corner. Apart from that, there is some 'scene philosophy' by The Watcher who tries to find the reasons why people claim that the demoscene is dead, several hints for coders and web designers, and some more partly crappy, partly worth discussing statements about parties and the scene in general. For instance, one author presents the theory of a huge wall between the scene and the newbies which ryg heavily criticises in this Hugi issue. Too bad the probably most interesting texts, that is the long interview with the group Aardbei and the first TP8 report, have not been translated to English.
