AnimeFringe: April 2002

posted on by George Phillips
AnimeFringe kicks off the Spring season with flair! Check AnimeFringe for an interview with Fred Gallagher of Megatokyo, as well as impressions of Osamu Tezuka's Phoenix manga, and more!

Excerpted from the Press Release:
Manga on the Web: Megatokyo
Starbucks hot chocolate with no whipped cream. Online identities weighed against real life identities. These topics are just a few that occurred in our interview with Fred Gallagher (Piro), author and artist behind the popular online manga Megatokyo. In our brief discussion with Fred, we learned about many things, from the humble beginnings of Megatokyo to Piro's thoughts on the large following the site experiences today. Sit back and enjoy the ride as we guide you through several questions that many Megatokyo readers wish to know the answers to.

Samurai Girl: Real Bout High School
All Ryoko wants is to be normal. Instead she's being hounded by ninjas wanting to fight her, girls who want to give her boxed lunches, and boys who will go to any lengths to watch her every move. Welcome to Daimon High School, a school dedicated to martial arts. Daimon is a school where clubs fight it out for more funding and where every day is a brand new experience.

Phoenix: A Tale of the Future
Osamu Tezuka is well known as the father of anime and manga. With such classics under his belt as Jungle Emperor Leo (also known as Kimba the White Lion), Mighty Atom (released in America as Astro Boy), and Metropolis (recently made into a movie by Rintarō). Despite his many powerful works, Tezuka considered Phoenix as his "life work." Thus, Viz is releasing the second chapter of Phoenix as Phoenix: A Tale of the Future.
What happened in the first chapter you might ask?
You'd be suprised...

And if those top notch articles weren't enough...
We've got a brand new editorial by Jake Forbes about SEGA's video game dominance, a bunch of cool briefs, and 8 exciting reviews including Marionette Generation Vol.2 and Sakura Taisen 4.
