Anime Insider

Fall of 2003 brought a much-welcomed response from Robert Bricken, editor of Wizard's Anime Insider magazine, asking for my help with a unique lead news story involving Korean animation. The story was to be centered around the amazing influx of Korean animated feature films that were announced just weeks prior. It would also cover the evolution of the animation industry in Korea, spotlight five of their must see series/movies and would even require extensive quotes from convention chairmen, MTV representatives and even a Korean cultural firm. There was just one catch...it had a turn-around time of a week.

Needless to say, the article was delivered on time and it soon blossomed into other work. Other pieces that followed included an ill-fated franchise worth-chart (unpublished), a side-bar comparing the Gundam head to a Samurai helmet, a mind-numbing cover feature on the Japan-only SD Gundam series, a news byte on Rave Master coming to Cartoon Network (unpublished), an A.I. 5 showcase on Kaze No Yojimbo (unpublished) and a convention round-up piece. My work on Anime Insider even gave me the chance to expend into ToyFare Magazine with an article spotlighting the North American launch of Gundam SEED.

My original draft for the Tenchi Muyo article was considerably longer with several entries that had to be omitted or scaled down for the final printed article. Feel free to give my original "director's cut" draft of the Ultimate Tenchi Guide a read if you'd like to totally fall down the Tenchi rabbit hole.
