January Review Contest Results

Well, we received a lot of reviews this month, and we posted a total of 17 reviews, 12 of which are eligible for the review contest. These twelve reviews are:

Ai no Kusabi

Cardcaptor Sakura

History of Trunks

DBZ: Deadzone

DBZ: Movie 2

Kare Kano

Samurai X

Rurouni Kenshin


Princess Mononoke

Ninja Resurrection

Sailor Moon R

Unfortunately there was also a number of reviews that we received that we could not post for various reasons. Most painful were the ones that were decent reviews but missing some required element such as the production information... With the number of reviews coming in, and all the other work involved in Anime News Network, it just isn't possible for me to hunt down the missing information. Fortunately some of these reviews might come back to be posted this month!

Selecting a winner this month wasn't easy either, it became a very close contest between five reviews, all of which were excellent. Finally I was able to settle on two reviews, and as it happens, George had also selected one of those two as his favorite review, so the winner is:

Serial Experiments Lain DVD Vol. 1-4
by: Aaron Silver

Aaron wins a $100 gift certificate for Right Stuf International's online store. A special thank you to TRSI for donating a part of this prize.

Now, as you may or may not know, the contest rules specifically stated that at least 20 entries would have to be received, what we meant to say was: "A minimum of 20 entries must be accepted". But, since this was teh opening month of the contest, we decided to award the prize nonetheless. In February however, we must have 20 posted reviews (not including any posted by George or myself) if we are to award the prize.

A big thank you to everyone who entered, and congradulations to Aaron.
