Naruto Uncut Boxed Set Vol. 1
Naruto Uncut Boxed Set Vol. 1
Anime DVD Review by Brian Cirulnick

NarutoThere's an old saying that reads "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.", and this is essentially the basis for what has become "the" anime phenomena of 2006 - Naruto. Where DragonBallZ once ruled the cartoon universe, Naruto has come in and taken over as the king of fighting anime.

Naruto tales place in a world where ninja hold the ultimate power. Infused with the spirit of a once fearsome Nine-Tailed Fox, Naruto Uzumaki is a ninja-in-training who is learning the art of Ninjutsu with his classmates Sakura and Sasuke. The trio study under the instruction of their teacher, Kakashi, who helps the group face dangerous and daunting tests and challenges. Through their adventures, the young ninjas learn the importance of friendship, teamwork, loyalty, hard work, creativity, ingenuity, and right versus wrong.

Negadon: The Monster from Mars
Negadon: The Monster from Mars
DVD Review by Lawrence Sufrin

NegadonAll kaiju fans are hereby ordered to see this 26-minute homage to Japanese giant monster movies. It might be the first film of its kind rendered entirely in CGI, but don't let that fool you. It looks and acts like the best of the Toho Godzilla films. See this film!!!! Make it a part of your life.

This film pays homage to a wide variety of 1950's and 60's Japanese monster movies such as Godzilla, Mothra, and other classics which first brought global attention to Japan's then-emerging post-war feature film industry. The beauty of Negadon: the Monster from Mars is that Jun Awazu "gets it". He understands the gist of what makes a great monster movie. He captures the spirit and flavor in a way that few people can.

Neon Genesis Evangelion — The End of Evangelion
Neon Genesis Evangelion —
The End of Evangelion

Anime DVD Review by Brian Cirulnick

Neon Genesis EvangelionNow that Evangelion has enjoyed an unbroken run on Cartoon Network, you probably think you've seen it all. Grit your teeth, settle down and throw away the last two episodes of the TV series. Here's the movie that essentially re-does the ending, changing things so that they make a bit more sense (depending upon your outlook), as director Hideaki Anno recreates the epic of epics and settles, once and for all, the greatest anime series of all time.

This unrated feature, suitable for ages 17 and older, contains considerable violence, profanity, grotesque imagery, and sexual situations. So, hide the kids from this, it's a much more an adult epic than the TV series was, appealing to a mature generation of fans who grew up watching it.

KamiChu! - Little Deity
KamiChu! - Little Deity
Anime DVD Review by Brian Cirulnick

Little DeityIf you enjoyed Miyazaki's "Sprited Away" or the TV Series "Someday's Dreamers", you'll love this new anime series from the creators of "R.O.D. The TV" - a sweet and comical look at Japanese culture and Shinto mysticism that is a coming-of-age play taken to an interesting extreme.

Yurie Hitotsubashi was just an average middle school student living in the city of Onomichi on Japan's inland sea. She spent her days worrying about exams and trying to get Kenji, the clueless boy she likes, to notice her. Then during lunch one day she suddenly announces to her friend Mitsue that the night before she had become a goddess.

The Science of Anime: Mecha-Noids and AI-Super-Bots
Anime Book Review
by Brian Cirulnick


The Science of AnimeOne of the fundamental core concepts of anime is advanced technology and how it will affect the human race. Since the beginning of the anime revolution in Japan, series like Astro Boy and Gigantor have explored such topics as the importance of robots and androids in the world of the future and what it means to be human. Movies like Akira have touched upon the power of the atom, the advances and tragedies nuclear power will bring to the Earth. Equally important, stories like Ghost in the Shell explore the limits of human/machine interface and ask if there are any limits to the possibility of computer intelligence. More than any other entertainment field, anime deals with the future of science and technology and explores topics rarely dealt with elsewhere in fiction or film.

Let's Learn Japanese Picture Dictionary
Book Review by Brian Cirulnick

DictionaryIf you're an absolute beginner, or you're looking to start teaching Japanese to someone young, this is an excellent way to get started. This is a children's book with fun-filled illustrated panoramas focusing on scenes familiar to children aged three through eight, such as home life, the classroom, city life, sports, the zoo, and even outer space! Hundreds of words each have their own illustrations and most pages have large, beautiful composite drawings great for point and name practice.

Texhnolyze: Music Only Music But Music
Texhnolyze: Music Only Music But Music
Anime Soundtrack Review
by Brian Cirulnick


TexhnolyzeA hard pounding Rave beat, combined with a mod Trasher techno sound makes Texhnolyze the cyberpunk soundtrack to the internet-connected lifestyle. Composer Keishi Urata (Sound Architect of Akira) doesn't let the beats get dull because along comes Ben Watkins of Juno Reactor (a major force in Techno, contributing to the movies Mortal Combat and Matrix Reloaded) with "Guardian Angel", the awesome and explosive title theme. This album has the extended remix which goes for more than 5 minutes (very good drive-fast music).
