Hikaru No Go, Vol. 1 (DVD)
VIZ Media

Review by Tom Good

I have enjoyed the Hikaru No Go manga series, so I was curious to see how it would translate into an anime. The game of Go, while fascinating, is not exactly full of hard-hitting action visuals, so I wondered whether the story would really work as a video. Much like the manga, the anime sticks to a very straightforward visual approach that does not take a lot of chances, but works well and allows the strength of the story to shine through. [more]

Lake Anita
By Allison Burnett

Late one night, driving cross-country, my friend and I stopped at a campsite in Lake Anita, Iowa. The attendant had already fallen asleep, so we drove our station wagon slowly over the gravel drive, past the admission gate, and up a winding road to a hill overlooking miles of low, dark countryside.

Mara and the Dragon
By Kathryn L. Ramage

This excerpt is from an unfinished fantasy novel, "Mara Sonnedragon," set on an alternate-history medieval Earth. Mara is the only daughter and heir of the Grand Duke of Noreland, and therefore titled Prince in spite of her gender. She is also the leader of the Shieldmaids, a quasi-religious group of women warriors, but unlike many of her fellow Shieldmaids, has not yet received a vision of the talisman beast that will serve as her battle symbol and personal spirit-guide.

The Ring
By Allison Burnett

Stefan Kline lay in bed naked, his arms behind his head, staring at the ceiling. Projected on the wavy and crumbling surface were images of perfection. He was not one to gloat, but he felt he had every right to, because that morning he had decided that his evening would be perfect and it had been. Never before had he felt so secure in the power of his will.

Interview with Noboru Ishiguro

By Tom Good

Noboru Ishiguro, director of such anime classics as Astro Boy and Macross, appeared at Sakuracon in Seattle to talk about his new project, Mushishi, which had just won an award in the TV Series category at the Tokyo International Anime Fair. He is currently working on 6 new episodes. The following press interview was conducted through an interpreter.

What is the series about?

It is hard to explain what the series is about. Probably the best way to explain is to actually watch it, but even then you might not be able to understand it. But notice the visual backgrounds. A lot of emphasis was put there, and they are much prettier than most. It has about twice the amount of frames as most anime. [more]
