By Adam Arnold

"C-H-O-C-O." It's trouble don't you know. One fateful day, Cacao was asked to stay after school to watch one of his professors perform a spell. Having not eaten all day, Cacao found a bar of chocolate on the good teacher's desk and gobbled it down. Unbeknownst to him, the chocolate happened to be over 200 years old and a very important moment in the spell... He sneezed! The spell went haywire and a tree sprite was sent into a the body of a giant doll and the very world got turned on its ear. Can things get any freakier? Oh yeah, you better believe it.

At this point, we are all familiar with the sappy, flower-backgroundy goodness that is shoujo manga. But these girls grow up sometime, and still need more comic goodness. Enter in Moyoko Anno's Happy Mania, an excellent example of the kind of manga women in their 20s are reading in Japan.

Anime cel collecting has long been a hobby of a small group of otaku. Some collectors might go so far as to try and auction off their left kidney in order to pay for a cel from the Nausicaa and the Valley of the Wind. Animefringe got the chance to talk with Nick Dombkowski, the owner of Anime Chaos, in order to find out a bit more about this interesting hobby.

By Dillon Font

It's a story that needs to be told. It's a story of pain and suffering, of pride and joy. It's a story of embarrasment. It's the story of someone's first time. We're all friends here, so we can share the intimate details with you. So brace yourself as we reveal what every virgin wants to know... "What's it really like to cosplay?"
