Anime DVD Review by Brian Cirulnick

Blue GenderBlue Gender is a hard-core science fiction plot with surprisingly realistic characters. This anime series delves into not only the face value of each character but also into the psyche of the person on a level most anime won't touch. The tone is dark and serious, with life and death hanging on the balance of each character, his actions, his fears, his ambitions, and his responsibilities. Not for the faint of heart, Blue Gender contains scenes of intense blood and guts action down to the last gruesome detail, which means it's worth an "MA" rating. Read More...

Anime DVD Review by Brian Cirulnick

DisgaeaThe death of the King has left the Netherworld in chaos, with everyone vying for control of the coveted crown. Various demons are now building their own little empires in an effort to try and take control. But despite the rightful claim of the late King's own son, maintaining the throne will not be such an easy task in Disgaea: Volume One — The Netherworld Prince.

Along to help him is his vassal; Etna with her Prinny squad, and Flonne, an angel-in-training originally sent to assassinate the king only to find that he has already died. Join our three intrepid, and somewhat eccentric, heroes as they initiate their plan to reclaim the prince's rightful place as ruler of the Netherworld, and then conquer the Heaven and Earth and well!

Animation DVD Review by Laurence Sufrin

Flash Gordon animated seriesSince its debut as a comic strip in 1934, Alex Raymond's Flash Gordon has enjoyed a whole lot of success on movie and television screens all over the world.

Review by Brian Cirulnick

Fooly CoolyIf you've been reading these pages for any length of time, you'd know we're nuts over FLCL. Gainax's madcap 6-episode masterpiece ranks highly in anime canon. And any chick that beats up a Vespa with a baseball bat as part of the closing credits gets our vote. Read More... Recommended Books:

How To Draw Manga Review by Brian Cirulnick

Draw Manga: How to Draw Manga In Your Own Unique StyleThis is the first book to address how to draw Manga emphasizing your own unique abilities, rather than just copying what you think everyone else wants to see. It's one thing to be able to draw like the Japanese, and it's another thing entirely to be able to bring your own artistic flair to the style and make a unique contribution to the overall art form. This is the difference between merely being an illustrator and being a real "artist". Read More...

J-pop Audio CD Review by Brian Cirulnick

Morning Musume: A good example of J-Pop...Morning Musume works by this simple principle: The more cute girls a singing group has, the better. As with bands that age over time, girls are "retired" and auditions held (ala American Idol) to replace the outgoing members of the group with new girls. The group has so many members that subgroups formed and became their own bands ("Minimoni", for example, was a subgroup that formed by taking the shortest members of Morning Musume, and spinning them off).
