The Nihon Review - Anime Reviews & Editorials

Movies are the new sequels

What happened to the good old days where a popular  anime show spawns another season months after the first aired?  Now we have to wait years for the spin-off movie to be released on DVD or Blu-ray.  Yes, these movies are a visual orgy and they are a good way for companies to make money, but it’s hard to muster up enthusiasm for these titles when the all the artbooks, DVDs and figurines have collected an artistic array of cobwebs.  This is what I wonder about whenever I see anything about Macross Fronter: The False Songstress.
