ANIMEfringe Reviews!

Welcome to our Reviews section!  Unfortunately, due to deadline problems we're short one review this month, but 3 out of 4 ain't bad... As usual, we're willing to review anything you'll like from Japan. That includes ANYTHING -- Anime, Manga, canned beverages, toothpaste, music... anything. We mean it. So, if you have a review you'd like to see on ANIMEfringe (we'll put it right here on this page with the rest of the month's reviews...) don't be afraid to send it over...

The volume features Akemi Matsuzawa's look at the lavish fan niche. Matsuzwa is a former anchorwoman who acts as the host to tie together a series of random interviews that her male cameraman conducts.
