Animefringe: September 2001

It is September. The lazy days of summer are starting to wane. For many of us school beckons once again, and we can't help but think to ourselves, "Summer went by too freakin' fast!" So what's an otaku to do? Well, we can understand your sad predicament. To better prepare you for the coming months of mindless book work, we've put together an issue that will be more distracting than ever before. We expect the nation-wide grade-point average to flounder into an unusual slump due to our September issue. So come, take part! Put down the homework, break loose the shackles of academic oppression, and proudly put on OUR shackles of sheer Animefringe goodness.

Manga On The Web

Thanks to the wonder of the Internet, being broke is no longer an excuse to not read manga. Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few years, you'd know that online manga has picked up the momentum of a runaway freight train. You now have a gaggle (that's right, a GAGGLE!) of comic strips, manga series and even animated shorts to choose from -- all with that independent flavor we've grown so fond of. This month, we start a new miniseries of articles, showcasing many popular manga sites and their creators, and opening your eyes to the wide world of online manga.

Keroro Gunso - A Frog On A Mission

You know those series about wacky aliens that come to Earth and cause havoc for some unsuspecting family, right? Well, add Keroro Gunso to that list. It's one seriously warped series about a race of alien frogs that have their eyes set on invading Earth, but some kids discover their plan and the next thing you know there are a bunch of frogs sponging off people. Add in a ton of anime references and you've got a manga that's one part Otaku no Video and one part Urusei Yatsura.

Sister Princess

Want to be the center of attention? Tired of playing relationship simulations and ending up finishing the game without a girl by your side? Here is a game that will help boost your ego. But if you know you can get annoyed by kawaii characters quickly and you can't stand excessive 'cuteness', then keep away from this game! =)

Otakon 2001 - The East Coaster's Con

Some say that Otakon is the East Coast equivalent to Anime Expo, the biggest West Coast Anime Con known to date. Anime Expo has it's favorable moments, and sometimes even lack of such, and Otakon has theirs as well. Let's take a step back in time to early August, where the fun began.

Editorial: Chasing Otakuism - Nothing Says Lovin' Like Fanart and Paper Cranes

This month, Jake's enlisted the assistance of NikoNiko and Punpun -- the two plucky characters who answer fan mail in SMILE Magazine -- to conduct a snappy little op/ed for our own fine magazine. Unfortunately, we had no idea that these two fan mail freaks really push the envelope. Don some protective eyewear before you enter, because the sparks do fly. Oh well, there's always next month...
