Regardless of possible complaints, this film will introduce Astro Boy to a new generation of fans. That is a good thing! And if they ultimately seek out and connect with Tezuka’s original creation, i.e. the original manga and anime, even better.
"The Simpson's Movie" director David Silverman spoke to a packed house on Day 2 of the Ottawa International Animation Festival.
Day 1 of the 2009 Ottawa International Animation Festival got off to a brisk start with the Television Animation Conference (TAC) plus 41°F weather.
The 20th annual Cartoon Forum took place September 22-25 in the beautiful town of Stavanger, Norway. Always marked by a convivial atmosphere, the event in this milestone year had an especially positive and cohesive vibe, with attendees seemingly enjoying simply being together to share their common enthusiasm.
Although I have reviewed these anime titles in the past, the release of their box sets compels me to toss around a few words. Surely, as the heading suggests – and, again, the title of my new book –, whose day isn’t inundated with girls, guns, beasts, and even a few lacking the social skills?
Pete Rizkalla goes hands on with the new South America level of Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles for the Wii.
The ninja is by no means new to the anime scene. All powerful, world saving high school students, for that matter, are also pervasive; though such plot-consuming, pubescent power is now so ubiquitous that it’s about as sexy as a white dress at a wedding.

Whether a lover of all things Naruto, or simply a cybernetic pugilist, Naruto Shippuden: Ninja Destiny 2 will satisfy your gaming fix.
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.
