By Dillon Font

Tomoko Taniguchi is the creator of some of the purest and most classic shoujo manga seen this side of the Pacific. Animefringe was fortunate enough to sit down with Taniguchi-sensei at the recent Shoujocon, her latest American release "Popcorn Romance" in hand. Taniguchi discussed her life as a classic shoujo artist, her excitement on being published in America, as well as past lives and sword fighting. All the usual, I suppose.

After a ten year hiatus, something many of us have been clamoring for has finally arrived - a TV series based on the popular Ninja Scroll animated film. Available in tasty bite-size thirty minute servings, the Ninja Scroll TV series contains all the action and violence that made the original so memorable. Can this release reproduce the success of the film? Only time will tell.

Patrick had a chance to sneak a peek at Satoshi Kon's newest domestic release, Millennium Actress, published locally by Dreamworks. Unlike Perfect Blue, this film is comforting rather than unsettling, charming rather than disturbing. It's an endearing tale any fan of anime should strive to see.

Satoshi Kon's latest film premiered at the Big Apple Anime Fest, and Animefringe was there, front and center, to witness this aspect of anime history. Should we feel lucky in getting this early screening of one of the best pieces of cinema in recent memory? Sure, but at least this way you get the scoop on the adventures of three homeless people and a garbage baby. Good times!

The last weekend in September rolls around and that means only one thing...time for Anime Weekend Atlanta! This year, AWA found itself new home and much more robust usage of floor space. With laptop in hand, Adam made his pilgrimage to the land of the otaku and returned with a trunk full of swag and some interesting stories to tell. Care to have a listen?

Join Patrick (and sister) as his Con virginity is stripped away violently at the low cost of $7. It's time to head to Collinsville, Illinois!

Australia: land of danger. Snakes, spiders, crocodiles... but none of those things are as frightening as the prospect of not getting enough anime! Australian anime fans have lived through some bumpy ups and downs, but how are things looking today?
