by Chad Boninon July 31, 2005
Clubs are a big part of college life. Well, I guess that’s true in Japan. I haven’t done much clubbing in college, because the gaming group scares the living crap out of me. But Sasahara’s new to college and wants to join a club. The anime club and manga club seem too specialized for his […]

by Dukeon July 27, 2005
What happens when you take the plot of Neon Genesis Evangelion, add some really messed-up giant robots, get a character designer coming off his peak, a popular new JPop artist, and enough angst to fill up the entire United States?

"Steamboy": Fantastic Journey to Yesterday's Tomorrow

by Chris Woodon July 25, 2005
These days we take it for granted that major anime features will get a nationwide theatrical run in the U.S. This was not the case in 1989, when renowned manga artist/writer Otomo Katsuhiro’s cyberpunk classic Akira took the art house circuit by storm. Nearly twenty years later, he has finally returned to the director’s chair […]
