by Dukeon October 23, 2005
In my long-ago high school days I was a member of the anime club. Back then, our options were limited to whatever random VHS tape we could find, and one of them was a two-episode number called Shadow Skill. In it, a fighting chick trains a kid in the titular martial art, which was developed […]

"IGPX": Prepare for the November Revolution

by Dukeon October 18, 2005
It’s amazing how far Toonami has come. Way back in 1997, it looked like just another generic action block, starring Moltar from the then-popular Space Ghost Coast to Coast to drum up some ratings. It had old-school 80’s cartoons, old-school 70’s cartoons, and the first “reinvention” of a classic series, and some people didn’t expect […]

"Count Duckula" Opens a Humorous Vein

by Maxie Zeuson October 14, 2005
Here’s a paradox for you: the more famous and popular a classic TV cartoon is, the less likely you are to see it quickly released on DVD. Look at Warner Bros., which has hustled The Perils of Penelope Pitstop out long before, say, Pinky and the Brain. Conversely, marginal shows, especially those produced by small […]
