Entertainment Weekly has come out with its "Best of 2000" issue which features several Anime choice picks.
The DVD version of Princess Mononoke was listed as the number six Best Video of the year. "Hayao Miyazaki's most ambitious work is to anime what Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is to the martial arts genre, a barouge, self-conscious masterpiece. The insanely complicated plot triangulates somewhere between Joseph Cambell, The Lord of the Rings, and Japanese myth, and the images carry a majestic shock, as if you're peering over a mountain into a new world."
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, to which Mononoke is compared was listed as the number 3 movie of the year, while director, Ang Lee was listed as the number 10 entertainer of teh year.
Powerpuff Girls placed number 10 on the best video release with a comment calling it Dragon Ball Z for girls. Digimon got a joke mention as the "Worst Pokemon/Net Crossbreeding Attempt".
