And by crazy I am being literal. What the fuck is up with any of this? Particularly the audio, which is so jumbled I actually stopped the trailer to see if I'd left my mp3 player running in the background.
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.
