Cover Story:
By Adam Arnold

Excel Saga may just be the most insanely funny and off-the-wall series ever conceived. It takes the fun characters of Slayers, dashes them with the campiness of Nadesico, and crams in more references than Otaku no Video. From sight gags to spoofs, Excel Saga is like watching the anime version Tiny Toon Adventures. So take a few minutes and join us as we take a totally off-the-wall and unconventional look at a truly original series.

Jack Blazkiewicz

Looking for something a little juicy to sink your teeth into? Better watch your back though, there's a rouge vampire and an undead cop lurking the streets, trying to put an end to any nasties out there. And if you've got a taste for blood, then you'd better beware. "In the name of God, impure souls of the living dead shall be banished into eternal damnation. Amen."

By En Hong

You wanna see action? You wanna see fly honeys? How about fly honeys kicking some you-know-what with super-powers? Read or Die is sure to satisfy any fan's gullet with its Asian twist of the classic super-hero adventure tale. This is one three-part OVA series is to be taken shaken, not stirred.

Remember that series about that overactive alien and the earthling forced to put up with it's hijinks? No, we're not talking about My Favorite Martian, we're talking about NieA under Seven. You know, NieA_7? That series from the creators of Lain. If you've forgotten it or haven't ever seen it, then shame on you. Animefringe reviewed all four volumes as they came out, and now we've decided to point a few things out in a retrospective of the series.

Editorial:
By Holly Kolodziejczak

We are already in the midst of the summer convention season, and we here at Animefringe are feeling the wave of excitement as well. As a small entourage of Animefringe staffers prepares to make an appearance at Anime Expo, the con virgin in our midst is practically drowning in sheer anticipation of her first anime convention.
