Okay, all that verbiage should indicate one thing: this series is smart, or at least tries to be. Overall, I like it. I like it a lot. The darkness of Ergo Proxy’s canvass, the moodiness of its city, and the detached citizens invokes Blade Runner-esque trappings that are a true anime/sci-fi delight.
Funny, witty, straight to the point, Happily Ever After is why we love to laugh and analyze relationships.
At any rate, I enjoyed this film. I wasn’t jumping on the couch like Tom Cruise. But the supernatural essence inherent in nature’s beauty is successfully laid bare in this live-action version of Mushi-Shi. Otaku everywhere should be pleased with the adaptation.

I shared emails with Pete Elmsie on Friday. I wrote him to apologize for the personal attacks that were leveled on him and Theo and Amid. These attacks came from both sides of the debate.
Big Windup gets points for just being itself. So much anime being licensed in the US seems defined by supernatural high school students charged with killing ghosts or man-eating beasts. So, it’s always nice to see the other side of anime that is so prevalent in Japan, that is, its reflection of the contemporary world.
If you’re not already a diehard fan, xxxHolic will grow on you like a melodious, teenage-angst filled song canvassing an episode of Dawson’s Creek or One Tree Hill. You’ll be covertly humming the chorus for days to come.
Overtly an action filled drama encapsulated within the spy genre, Gunslinger Girl achieves a delicate balance of human story telling and covert bloodshed that invokes classic films like Three Days of the Condor.
There’s a lot of action, and Kazuma’s use of the wind to create force fields, electricity, and breezes shaper than a katana is visually impressive. But this series is running on too many stock anime characters.
Going down every third thursday of the month, I just started attending Tune in Tokyo events in August. Located in Little Tokyo, this is the perfect place for anime fans, gamers, cosplayers, and J-fashionistas to mingle and have fun.
Comedy, drama, and kick-ass jutsu; Naruto Box Set 14 delivers everything you expect in a classic Naruto tale. But, since it steps outside the main story arc, it also delivers something unexpected. And that’s why you should pick up this DVD set.
Alright Naruto fans, get ready to put your jutsu to work. TOMY is due to release two titles that you cannot miss: Naruto Shippuden: Clash of Ninja Revolution 3 (Wii) and Naruto Shippuden: Ninja Destiny 2 (DS).
On Pangya Island you’re not just playing an ordinary round of 18 holes. This hidden treasure offers inter-dimensional golf. Whether you want to play the back 9 on a wave-washed course, or test your skills on ice, Pangya has a course for you.
Unfortunately there is nothing of great importance to report here. As much as I love Steve Yun and Tommy Yune, who are largely responsible for reinvigorating Robotech and its legacy through the Shadow Chronicles, the panel at Comic-Con 09 was reminiscent of last year’s.
AWN's Editor in Chief Bill Desowitz walks us through Day 5 of his SIGGRAPH 09 adventure.The key word is 3-D
Press reports have attendance at about 10,000, which is extremely low, of course. But, as I previously noted, it's resulted in a very appropriate quaintness. You can tell that the people who have come here are very passionate.
Being dead isn’t such a drag for Brandon Heat – and yes, with a name like that you’re either on the street kicking ass or in porn. After all, he has a second chance at one thing: revenge.
