"Hello Kitty" Is Taking Over the World...Starting With Disney

"Batman Beyond Season Two": Back To The Future We Go!

"Basilisk Volume 1 Scrolls of Blood": If You Want Blood, You Got it

The samurai genre is so robust in anime that one wonders why there isn’t a similar demand for animated westerns in the U.S. Perhaps it is just one more indicator of the close bond Japan maintains with history and tradition in the face of rapid technological development.
