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.

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 […]
