"Ultramaniac Vol. 1": Authentic, Energetic Shoujo For Kids

by Karl Olsonon July 13, 2005
Magical Girls. Mahou shoujo, as they might say in Japan. The concept, at least in anime, is nearly fifty years old. As such, it’s hard to imagine that there’d be much life left in it. There have been girls with swords, batons, cards, compacts and probably almost every other object under the sun. The heroines […]

"As Told by Ginger": Slow Times at Junior High

by Chris Woodon July 11, 2005
Animators have long concentrated their attention on boys … Sorry, that sounds like a Michael Jackson reference. Anyway, animation has usually focused on the young male audience, and it’s only in the last few decades that cartoons specifically targeting girls have become prevalent. Perhaps it was assumed girls bought fewer toys or were more literate. […]

DVD Collection Is Fun But Not "Fantastic"

by James Harveyon July 9, 2005
The four-disc Fantastic Four: The Complete 1994-5 Animated Series DVD set is a mixed offering giving us both the best and worst of Marvel Animation. Thankfully, a fantastic (pun intended) second season makes up for a wretched, laughably horrid first season. But much like the first season of this cartoon, the DVD extras fall incredibly […]
