Shonen Onmyouji
Anime DVD Review by Carolyn Whu

Shonen OnmyoujiWay back when I watched this quirky corny live action called Onimyouji. It was a cross between horror and comedy with a bit of drama thrown in for fun. It was off-kilter enough to keep me interested and the leading man was good-looking and enigmatic enough to keep my eyes glued to the screen. Seimei, the divination master that can supposedly control demons, protects the imperial court from the devious manipulations of corrupted humans and invasions from the underworld. Read More...

Kaze No Stigma
Anime DVD Review by Brian Cirulnick

Kaze No StigmaKazuma blows. Literally. But that's because he's a master of wind-magic. He was next-in-line to lead a family of fire-magic users, but because his skills in that area were sub-par, he was kicked out of the family. It's starting to sound a little like "Avatar The last Air-Bender", but stay with me here, this gets pretty interesting...

It's modern-day Japan, but with a twist. A few powerful clans control various elemental powers, using them to dispatch evil spirits (Youmas) as well as advance their own personal agendas, much like gangster rivalry, but in this case, using fire or wind. Read More...

Kyo Kara Maoh: Season 2
Anime DVD Review by Carolyn Whu

Kyo Kara MaohKyo Kara Maoh... is it FullMetal Alchemist meets The Twelve Kingdoms... with bacon? (Everything goes better with bacon) Or is it even better than that? If you've watched the first season, I don't think I need to say anything. You are going to watch season two anyway. Just remember to be civil as you are prying the DVD from the person's dead body to buy, ok? Ok, Kyo Kara Maoh is not so great that you need to kill someone for it; I was exaggerating. It is good enough to beat a person to a pulp for though. Read More...

Anime DVD Review by Saul Trabal

Rozen MaidenWhat happens when an alienated teen-age boy and a living doll join forces? For the teen-ager, Jun Sakurada, it's the beginning of a strange, wondrous and frightening journey into the world of the Rosa Mysticas. As Jun and the living doll Shinku are getting acquainted, a stuffed bear attacks Jun. Shinku will save Jun's life, but only if he vows to serve her-and he agrees.

Jun then finds himself drawn into a centuries-old battle that involves Shinku and six other dolls—all known as Rozen Maiden dolls. They are involved in what is known as the "Alice Game"—a competition orchestrated by their creator, only known as "Father." The dolls compete to see who will become Alice-the perfect embodiment of a girl. Read More...

Although it's billed as "music from the cartoon series", it's really a "best hits" album, and frankly, at 8 bucks, buying the CD is now a better deal than buying the tracks individually, because every track is worth having (Boogie-Woogie No.5 has been on my iPod literally FOREVER), and who can't not love the bonus track of the Teen Titans theme?

So buy it, rip it, and play it. You can't go wrong when two incredibly hot chicks that can sing get together and make pop-tunes that are catchy and you'll be singing with them regardless of whether or not you know a word of what they are saying.. Recommended Books:

Manga Review
by Brian Cirulnick

Lucky StarIf you've already enjoyed the anime series, then this manga is a no-brainer. While not as sharply defined as the anime, what is essential reading here is how much gets through at just 4 panels at a time. Not everything is spelled out, your brain has to fill in the gaps, and then the humor hits you. Read More...

Manga Review

Japanese FoodFinally, something that combines my two favorite things, Manga and Japanese Food!!! Like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, its two great tastes that taste great together.

Food seems to be a big deal in Japanese culture, as eating is a big part of anime, manga, and live action shows, there are groups who sing about food, and a Yakisoba tent seems as ubiquitous as a bus stop. But what is it exactly that the characters are eating? Read More...

This is a coming-of-age ritual where she must find her totem-a spirit that will help guide her through life. But her elders have chosen the wrong night for Luuna to go on this quest-because it is the night of the evil spirit Unuki. During Luuna's encounter with Hohopah, the spirit of the forest, Unuki confronts both Hohophah and Luuna. Read More...

Below is the ever so cute Noto Arisa (能登有沙) who is nicknamed Nocchi. She's specifically speaking slow so Amerucan otaku can try to follow what she is saying. In this video she’s announcing her 2nd personal manga, talking about some DVD and mentioning that she will debut as a voice actor in an animated drama titled Deba no Hime Goto.

In ancient times long since gone an early generation of fans loved the anime series Star Blazers (the American version of Space Cruiser Yamato). Below is a replica of Leader Desslok's wine goblet which is available for collectors. You can read about it at the full article at
