"Law of Ueki": A Gift from the Sky and I Wanna Return It

by Dukeon November 29, 2006
If there’s one thing that hasn’t been represented well in animation, it’s recycling. Sure, there was Captain Planet, and a bunch of anime have recycling jokes sprinkled here and there.

"Ninja Nonsense" Vol. 3: Pulling Out all the Stops

by Dr. Daedaluson November 25, 2006
