Kudos to Patten
I was moved by such a sensitive and informative analysis on the history of anime as "A Capsule History of Anime" by Fred Patten (Patten, 1.5). For someone who knew nothing, but had been exposed to the new stimulus and was bewildered by the different reactions in audiences in this country and overseas (Asia and Latin America), I was very impressed with Patten's brilliant analysis and clear expression. I would very much like to continue reading more articles by him and would like more information on classic Japanese stories, along with the samurai genre. Thank you very much for an article well written; a delight to the mind.


Editor's Note: Fred's one of our favorites too!

All Right Already!!!!
I just wanted to let you know that we don't agree with "Ed, Edd n Eddy: Caught in a Circle" by Terrence Briggs (Briggs, 3.11). My nine year-old daughter and her six year-old brother just adore Ed, Edd n Eddy!! They have every show on video tape and invite friends over to watch. My daughter has turned her entire third grade class into Ed, Edd n Eddy fans. She wishes she could find dolls of the characters. We have been to the Warner Bros. stores but they have never even heard of the cartoon. I wish Cartoon Network success with the show. It really is funny.

Your Ed, Edd n Eddy Fans

Editor's Note: Okay already! We have got so many letters in support of Ed, Edd n Eddy that next month Animation World Magazine will take another look at this Cartoon Network/Danny Antonucci show.
