"Ren & Stimpy" Seasons Three and a Half-Ish: Are You Game?

Games Animation. The name sends shivers of rage down the spines of John K. devotees. Remember when John Kricfalusi, the mastermind behind the infamous Ren & Stimpy, was fired from his own show, along with his studio, Spumco? And how Nickelodeon created their own domestic animation studio to take over the reins in Spumco’s absence? […]

"Zixx Level Two" Episode 9: Call the Colonel, It's a "Man-Eating Chicken"

Zixx is a live action show fused with CG, and through a convoluted, top secret arrangement that involves several illegal off-shore bank accounts and Sean Connery (or something), I am one of the only Americans watching it. The CG’s by Mainframe, creators of ReBoot. The show is mostly good stuff. Zixx, Flanngo, and three humans […]

"Human Crossing" Vol. 3: Stories from Boringville, Japan

Human Crossing sounds like a good idea: an anthology of adult-oriented dramas, each exposing the difficulties of a different set of social relationships. Unfortunately, the intriguing concept is almost its only advantage. The visuals are the most obvious and biggest disappointment. Yes, this isn’t an action show, but there are minimal standards below which a […]

"Are You Laughing?" Aaron McGruder and "The Boondocks"

The Hippocratic oath is, “First, do no harm.” Aaron McGruder isn’t a doctor, but if he has an oath when it comes to his comic strip The Boondocks, it’s probably “First, make sure it’s funny.” A genial McGruder participated in a teleconference with the news media on Tuesday to promote the new Boondocks animated show. […]

"Yu Yu Hakusho" Dead At 112 Episodes

Yusuke Urameshi is dead. At least, that’s how the first episode ended. Or was that Tekken 5 or Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance? Either way, he’s been back for the better part of a hundred episodes at this point, and is currently fighting in the tournament to decide the fate of the demon realm. If he […]

"Sakura Diaries" Vol. 1: One Re-Release Too Many

ADV originally released Sakura Diaries back in 2000. At the time, ADV didn’t realize they had dubbed an edited version. So they re-released it with the unedited version (with nudity), but only included the Japanese audio and English subtitles. Now, five years later, ADV has decided to re-re-release it with a new English track. Sakura […]

"Zixx: Level Two": Can the "Spin Cycle" Wash Out Fanboys?

Fanboys are scary, scary creatures. You know the standard spiel. Zixx: Level Two is a Canadian blend of live-action and CG animation that you wouldn’t know in America unless you subscribe (somehow) to Canadian networks or read these reviews. Zixx Phunkee Zee and her accomplices help defend the Earth from invading aliens via a computer […]

"Ghost Talker's Daydream": My Mistress Sees Dead People

"Girls Bravo": Less Boobs = Less Fun

Yukinari’s got the worst disease a man can get. Whenever he is touched by a female, he bursts out in hives. This is especially bad when you consider this teenager lives next door to an incredibly busty babe and then is accidentally transported to an alien planet full of nothing but women. On his adventure […]
