May 7 2008 Anime Newsletter

Welcome to the May 7 edition of the BellaOnline anime newsletter!

In honor of the live-action Speed Racer opening in theaters this Friday (May 9), I posted a couple of new articles for Speed Racer: an overview article for the property and a review of the Speed Racer Collector's Edition DVD (which contains the first eleven episodes of the anime). Links for these articles are included later in the newsletter. The Speed Racer DVD has been added to the Anime Shop, and is also listed under the "Editor's Recommendations" on the main page of the Anime section. I also added Speed Racer-related words to the list for the anime word games.

If you're not a fan of Speed Racer, don't fret! There have also been some updates to the site this week that aren't Speed Racer-related.

The biggest change is the addition of a new subsection to the anime site: Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli. Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli have had such an impact on the anime industry, I felt that they deserved their own section. I posted a biography of Hayao Miyazaki, and a link to it is included later in the newsletter. I moved my reviews for Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Howl's Moving Castle, and Kiki's Delivery Service into this new section. And I also added an offsite link to Disney's official website for their Studio Ghibli releases.

This week, I also posted overview articles for Lost Universe and Emma: A Victorian Romance; links for both of them can be found later in the newsletter.


Here's the latest articles from the Anime site at
