News Yasuhiro Imagawa Cancels Trip to Anime Weekend Atlanta
posted on 2009-09-15 09:22 EDT
The Anime Weekend Atlanta convention announced last week that director Yasuhiro Imagawa (Giant Robo, G Gundam, Shin Mazinger Shōgeki! Z-Hen) and animator Tsuyoshi Nonaka (D.I.C.E, Shin Mazinger Shōgeki! Z-Hen) have cancelled their guest appearances at the September 18-20 event in Georgia. The Japanese musical guests Omodaka and PEELANDER-Z are still scheduled to appear.
Imagawa has directed several unconventional updates of classic Japanese robot stories, such as Giant Robo, G Gundam, and most recently, Shin Mazinger Shōgeki! Z-Hen. He also wrote scripts for Pet Shop of Horrors, Violinist of Hamelin, Berserk, and Hareluya II Boy.

If this film causes more permanent damage than most Pokémon outings, that's wholly the fault of its main character, Keldeo.
On the whole, The Battle for Doldrey is a mixed bag of strengths and weaknesses. While that may be true of most things, there are few places where those lines are so clearly drawn as in this film.
The storytelling has improved, and the series offers just enough interesting content to keep fans following it, but based on its first half Speed Grapher will never be mistaken for a quality series.
