Over the years, I've had a few things to say about the state of affairs in the Western anime world...for better and for worse. I've made great predictions and gotten some terribly wrong. I've written about conventions, anime clubs, the best and worst anime to come along...a little bit of everything. Because many of the special features are now dates, our listing is in reverse chronological order. Some articles are so old, we don't even know when they're from, and they'll appear at the tail end of the list. Nevertheless, the specials have a few surprises, as well as an interesting history of anime in the U.S. over the last fifteen years or so. Enjoy!
