"Valiant": Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! No, wait, it's a bird.

by Chris Woodon December 13, 2005
What with the overwhelming box office domination of U.S. giants such as Pixar and Dreamworks, it’s easy to forget that animation is a global industry. Even increasingly popular Japanese anime is virtually invisible in theaters.

"Kronk's New Groove": Yeah, It's Direct to Video -- So What?

by Chris Woodon December 12, 2005
The recent onslaught of Disney’s highly profitable direct to video (DTV) sequels to theatrical hits has opted for a vanilla approach, simplifying the music, comedy, animation and action of the originals in the apparent belief that the DTV audience is much younger than the box office crowd. The latest release is Kronk’s New Groove, a […]

"Maburaho" Vol. 5: More of the Same

by Dukeon December 9, 2005
After the last disasterous volume of Maburaho, I didn’t think it could get any worse. Fortunately, it doesn’t. In fact it gets a little better. On this disc, Kuriko goes on a date with a strange man, the girls try to dig Kazuki out of his chronic depression, Nakamaru discovers he has superior genes and […]

"Maburaho" Vol. 4: Back to the Crapper Again

by Dukeon December 9, 2005
I had high hopes after the last volume of Maburaho. It wasn’t groundbreaking or anything, but episode 12 gave me hope that the series would finally pick up. Now I’ve seen volume four and I’m ready to give up. Last time, Kazuki ended up using his final 2 spells and turned into a ghost. The […]

"Maburaho" Vol. 3: Decent Drama, About Damn Time

by Dukeon December 9, 2005
It’s another volume of the decent-but-generic magic harem romantic comedy show Maburaho, but wait! What’s this? A semi-original character arrives? And some dramatic moments happen?

Case in point: Maburaho. Kazuki Shikimori, a student at Aoi Academy, has magical powers. But there’s a catch: he can only use […]
