by Karl Olsonon April 23, 2005
Anime can do a lot—everything from poignant, realistic dramas to surreal, hyper-stylized fantasy worlds to madcap comedies. But like any medium, it’s got its share of clichés and crutches: generic evil secret organizations; nudity and violence in lieu of story and character; angst-ridden male leads; formulaic harem relationships. There are various and sundry other story […]

A SakuraCon Chat with Travis Willingham

by Karl Olsonon April 20, 2005
At SakuraCon, a set of press-only panels was held with the special guests in attendance at the convention. They were fairly loosely moderated and organized, and very off the cuff. One of these panels was held with Travis Willingham, the dub VA for Roy Mustang from FullMetal Alchemist. Reporter 1: As I am sure you […]
