by Ed Liuon August 20, 2014
Asaph “Ace” Fipke bills himself as the Supreme Commander of Nerd Corps, the Vancouver-based animation studio, and the whimsy in job title carries over into their TV shows.

Review: “Toy Story of Terror!” Delights On Blu-ray

by Todd "GWOtaku" DuBoison August 20, 2014
All right, I’ll admit it: nobody really needed more Toy Story. Toy Story 3 closed the book on it all, anything that comes after can only be epilogue. On paper a Halloween special sounds gimmicky and a perhaps a gateway to a half dozen derivative spinoffs: what about a Toy Story Christmas? Toy Story at […]

by Neo Yion August 19, 2014
Zaheer gives Korra an ultimatum to surrender, or he’ll destroy the Air Nation. The last episode ended with the Earth Queen dead and Ba Sing Se in total chaos.

The Amazing World Of Gumball – “The Vacation” Recap

by Joshua Baileyon August 19, 2014
The Wattersons’ vacation goes awry when it seems as if a scary story is coming true. This was a fantastic episode. It had ample amounts of humor and tension which made it delightful to watch.

by Todd "GWOtaku" DuBoison August 18, 2014
Long before Before VIZ Media’s reacquisition of Sailor Moon and even before its arrival on DVD in the early 00s, the edited DiC / Cloverway English dub of the seminal magical girl show was making its mark and enrapturing a generation of fans in the course of a tenacious run on television. At first, a […]

Otakon 2014: Charlene Ingram, Stephanie Sheh and Robbie Daymond Discuss the “Sailor Moon” Redub

by Todd "GWOtaku" DuBoison August 18, 2014
Sailor Moon has spent years in the status most vexing for English-speaking animation fans: that of the fondly remembered classic out of print, kept unavailable by a seemingly intractable “licensing hell.” All that began to change starting in 2011 when Naoko Takeuchi’s original classic shoujo manga was reprinted and retranslated by Kodansha Comics USA. Then […]

Dora has gone from being an elementary school kid to a teenager, and dropped the anthropomorphic animals and sentient inanimate objects that were her friends in favor of several […]
