R.O.D. is the story of a select group of people known as "Paper Masters". Paper Masters have the amazing ability to manipulate paper in practically any way imaginable. Put it this way: it gives a whole new meaning to the term "paper cut". There are two stories. First is the 3-epi...

The typical television season is 3 months, or 13 weeks. And most anime in Japan is shown weekly. Thus, most anime television series fit into that pattern. The most common span is two seasons (26 episodes), but there are shorter 13-episode series (like Hellsing) and longer 39-episode (like Revolution...

Not the TV series. The OVA. The TV series ended up at G4TechTV. Apparently, G4 wants to fight.

I say it's good for anime. Late night slots such as this provide an opportunity for more anime to be shown and for that anime to be shown with fewer cuts and edits than would be required for more mainstream hours. It's only because of these late night hours that viewers have the opportunity to see s...

Yes, I was impressed with the attention to detail Pioneer and New Generation Pictures put into getting the air of the series right. The only "regular" voice I discovered in the whole mix was Crispin Freeman, who voiced Alucard (Alucard not having a British accent was understandable), where...

Here's the story. IIRC, Ken Akamatsu created twelve volumes of Love Hina. By the time the last TV episodes were to be produced, only nine of them were available. For whatever reasons, they chose to stop the TV series at 25 episodes, although the story really hit its plot peak at #24. When the last 3...

Well, anime does tend to have more liberal ideas than in America; however, contrary to popular belief, most anime characters are rather ordinary. What you should do is get involved with your daughter concerning anime. Recognizing the need for parents to get involved, almost all anime these days post...

Hmm...was this series made in like the early 90's? Because in Saban's earlier days, they happened to show a series of Grimm fairy tales, which showed up on Nickelodeon's morning lineup.

I don't think anyone really knows. She looks like she's seventeen years old, but it's been said that, in the world of The Slayers, mastery of sorcery tends to slow the aging process. Some have pegged her age at around 500, others even older than that.

With all due respect, sir, what do you call the likes of Cowboy Bebop, The Big-O, Trigun, and Ghost in the Shell? Chopped sushi? And in fact, anime is becoming more and more mainstream. I can walk to my nearby Suncoast, peruse the (rather large) anime section, and not be considered a freak: just som...
