"In the city of my birth, I had a dream..."
ANN Reviews (A disproportionate number of pans...)

Siesta
Just a quick head's up for those of you who don't frequent Anime News Network. The following selection of anime and manga reviews written by Yours Truly have been posted there over the past month or so:

Manga:
The Good Witch of the West Vol. 3-4 by Noriko Ogiwara and Haruhiko Momokawa
You’re So Cool Vol. 1-2 by YoungHee Lee
Atelier Marie and Elie –Zalburg Alchemist– Vol. 1-2 by Yoshihiko Ochi
One Thousand and One Nights Vol. 5 by JinSeok Jeon and SeungHee Han

Anime:
Strait Jacket DVD
Ouran High School Host Club DVD Part 01

The latest installment of our gals-only roundtable went up yesterday as well. It is, apparently, doing quite well for ANN, attracting between 7,000-10,000 readers each week. Girl power! I would hazard a guess that the moé and the yaoi topics have proved most popular thus far.  So in that vein, this week's column is on crossdressing.

The One Thousand... link goes to the admin. login page, you might want to change that.

I read the Atelier Marie review and I think the storyline gets a lot better in the next three volumes ^^, I read it in German before I ever touched the US Atelier games. Oh and those slimes? They seem to be a big part as early monsters, they're called puni and don't have that slime peak on the top of the head (but they wobble just as much when they attack, they're obviously ripped of from Dragon Quest).

Having heard mostly bad things about the Good Witch anime (and not having liked the first episode) you make me want to try out the manga...

I've decided to stop buying One Thousand... etc. after the fourth volume since the story about the heavenly maid was just too dark and despairing for me. I read to escape, basically, so there's a line when people hack into other people with axes.

The novels and the manga are pretty awesome. A good friend adapted the novels too, so I can vouch for their quality in English. ^_~

One of the editors at Yen Press gave me vol. 4 to review (she knows I'm a fan from back when I was in Korea), but there really was nothing to say. It was too weak, and I really wanted to say nice things about the series...I think I've panned all their other books. ^^;;; I reviewed vol. 5 instead (which I actually bought) because it it a much stronger book.
