Animefringe Vol. 1, Issue 0
When we first combined our efforts long, long ago on we were full of dreams and ambition. We had an idea and a desire to be the best. It's funny how it takes such a long time with nothing but sweet and tears to make things work the way you hope they will. What you know see before you is the first magazine-oriented content Animefringe ever ran. Though we weren't a magazine back in the early planning stages, we did have the right ideas in minds.
What you see before you is the first ever compilation of all our original content. But, this isn't just a rehashing of the old. No, everything you will be seeing in this Zero Issue has been fully updated and totally integrated into our current magazine format. Hey, if Animerica can have a Vol.1 #0, then so can we.
Cover Story: Sex and the Single Anime Hero
Animefringe is proud to present Dave Baranyi's complete essays dealing with sex in anime; "Wimps from Outer Space" and "Sex and the Single Anime Hero." Dave's essays take an in-depth look at male character behavior in popular anime series ranging from Urusei Yatsura to Tenchi-Muyo! to more resent series such as Love Hina and KareKano in the hope of figuring out just what makes the characters act like they do.
Dave Baranyi has graciously updated all of his essays to make them the most up-to-date possible and has written exclusively for Animefringe the concluding chapter to his must-read essays: "Sex and the Single Anime Hero Part 4: What are the Normal Guys Doing?"
