Elemental Gelade, Vol. 1 - React (DVD)
Review by Tom Good
There is a genre of anime that I think of as "Normal Boy / Special Girl" stories. In these tales, a rather ordinary, underachieving boy finds himself paired up with a girl who is very unusual: an alien, witch, ghost, robot, goddess, cyborg, or some other exotic, fascinating being. Though ordinary girls are not particularly impressed by Normal Boy, and have little interest in his assistance or companionship, for some reason Special Girl needs him. These are also known as "magical girlfriend" stories, and are generally thought to have been inspired by TV shows like I Dream of Jeannie and Bewitched. [more]

Arcadia of My Youth
Distributed by AnimEigo*
Review by Kelly S. Taylor
I have to admit it. It wasn't love at first sight. The first time I ever saw Captain Herlock (or Harlock, as he was known in those days), he made my brain hurt. It was in the early eighties and my friend Andy had dragged me into a dimly lit room at a comic book convention to watch something he called "anime" that was what he promised would be "great." [more]

Kamichu! Vol. 1 (DVD)
Review by Tom Good
One day Hitotsubashi Yurie has the feeling that she has become a kami, and it turns out she is right! While learning to use her powers, she accidentally summons a powerful typhoon. But even as a godlike being, she still faces the typical challenges of middle school. She struggles with her grades. She hopes the cute boy in her class will like her, but he can't even remember her name. "Ichihashi, right?" he says. (Ichihashi and Hitotsubashi would both be written with the same kanji, so at least he is close.) And Yurie gets teased by other kids, who criticize her for not doing anything "splashy and godlike" lately to impress them. The title Kamichu! refers to the fact that Yurie is both a kami and a chuugakusei -- a middle-school student. [more]

WOMEN WEBCOMICKER GRANT NAN: Guidelines
In order to foster women publishing independently, with economy, and as owners of what they create, I will award FOUR grants annually, of a year's free hosting at WebComicsNation.com, to women making a regularly-updating new or existing webcomic of any genre or style.
The recipients will have unlimited data storage and bandwidth, the ability to choose to support their work with ads, and a storefront for selling merchandise.
The name of the grant is "Nan", after the "digital person" Nan 11 from Rumble Girls: Silky Warrior Tansie. In RG, Nan agitates, comments on, and works behind the scenes to help the heroine, Raven, come to the understanding that being her own girl is the key to her strength. [more]
