The news that Aikawa Sho personally cast the girls means we now know exactly what his type is, I guess. Sadly, the rest of it looks more dull than gleefully trashy, serious when it should be over the top.
These are the 4 issues of the fanzine we produced a while back (2002-2004). They're rough, but they're also the foundation for a lot of what we've built since then, including this site.

Issue 1 focused on Berserk, Jin-roh, and Asian live-action movies. It also had a memorable review of Gundress.
Issue 2 was a dissection of FLCL (it explains it all, really) and the work of Taiyo Matsumoto.
Issue 3 tackled Yoshitoshi ABe's traditional Japanese aesthetics, explained Evangelion and looked at the explosion of Korean movies.
Issue 4 was all about horror, laying out what made new wave Japanese horror so unique.
