Animefringe Vol.2 #9 - September 2001

-- Manga On The Web --
Thanks to the wonder of the Internet, being broke is
no longer an excuse to read manga. Unless you've been
living under a rock for the past few years, you'd
know that online manga has picked up the momentum of
a runaway freight train. You now have a gaggle
(that's right, a GAGGLE!) of comic strips, manga
series and even animated shorts to choose from -- all
with that independent flavor we've grown so fond of.
This month, we start a new miniseries of articles,
showcasing many popular manga sites and their
creators, and opening your eyes to the wide world of
online manga.

-- Keroro Gunsō --
You know those series about wacky aliens that
come to Earth and cause havoc for some
unsuspecting family, right? Well, add Keroro
Gunso to that list. It's one seriously warped series
about a race of alien frogs that have their eyes set
on invading Earth, but some kids discover their
plan and the next thing you know there are a bunch
of frogs sponging off people. Add in a ton of anime
references and you've got a manga that's one part
Otaku no Video and one part Urusei Yatsura.

-- Sister Princess --
Want to be the center of attention? Tired of playing
relationship simulations and ending up finishing
the game without a girl by your side? Here is a
game that will help boost your ego. But if you know
you can get annoyed by kawaii characters quickly
and you can't stand excessive 'cuteness', then keep
away from this game! =)

-- Otakon 2001 - The East Coaster's Con --
Some say that Otakon is the East Coast equivalent
to Anime Expo, the biggest West Coast Anime Con
known to date. Anime Expo has it's favorable
moments, and sometimes even lack of such, and
Otakon has theirs as well. Let's take a step back in
time to early August, where the fun began.
