Cover Story:
By Adam Arnold

"This is the story of a girl whose pretty face she hid from the world." Come on, you know the words. Kare Kano's a lot like that song, except Miyazawa doesn't hide her pretty face, she does quite the opposite. She puts up a false front in order to fool people. It takes a guy just like her to make her realize she doesn't have to be that way. This month, Animefringe takes a look and the manga and the anime that changed the face of shoujo.

By Holly Kolodziejczak

In a world of fruits in a basket, Tohru Honda seems to always take the part of the lonely rice ball sitting on the sidelines. But when does a rice ball belong in a Fruits Basket? Animefringe takes a moment to study the anime that makes us think about the lonely rice ball in all of us.

By Ridwan Khan

A little gem threatens to pass under the radar of American fandom. Makato Shinkai's 30 minute OAV, Hoshi no Koe is a sweet, sincere, independent anime, striking for a number of reasons. Animefringe takes a closer look.

By Adam Arnold

What do you wish for if you have everything? That's not an easy answer, and it's just the kind of problem that Shuichiro was faced with when he inadvertantly saved an angel. Kohaku offered to grant the kind man a single wish, but knowing he could buy anything he needed, he declined. Wish is CLAMP's latest series to come state-side is sure to make you feel all fuzzy wuzzy this holiday season.

By Team Animefringe and compiled by Steve Diabo

With the holidays just around the corner, we shouldn't ignore the anime characters that we love so dearly. That's why we're happy to publish a small collection of anime characters' wish lists to reveal to the public the kind of things they want to see under the tree. Curious? Read on to find out more!

Editorial:
By Neil Creek

Akira sucks! That's the opinion of Animfringe writer Neil. In this month's editorial he defends his point of view in a tongue-in-cheek, but also serious evaluation of the 'damage' caused by Akira, and what few merits he claims it has.

By Ridwan Khan and Patrick King
