"Tokyo Majin" Complete Series: Strong Start, Weak Finish

I am a dyed-in-the-wool New York Knicks fan, even though I don’t follow the team religiously, and this means that I have had to get used to the team’s singular talent for blowing a lead. In recent years, you could depend on them to take a 20-point lead at the half and blow it by […]

Cartoon Intro Cavalcade: "Cowboy Bebop"

The opening credits to Cowboy Bebop are like the best improvised jazz: it may seem spontaneous, but close analysis reveals powerful structure and intelligence underneath.

"Snow White" Diamond Edition: Still One of the Fairest After 70 Years

The first animated feature film in history was El Apóstol, a political satire made in 1917 that does not seem to have been screened widely outside its native Argentina and which has not survived to the present day.
