A couple of updates to the Parent's Guide to Anime have now been posted.
For those of you who have Fox Kids, the premier for Vision of Escaflowne was seen on Fox Kids Sat. Aug 19. Those of us who caught it were treated to a very fast paced episode which was primarily the second episode of the original work with much of the first episode seen during the opening credits as well as a recap in a flashback scene. The music itself was... errr well, it was. More will be posted later for Escaflowne after I dig out the original LDs as well as rewatch the Fox version (or maybe YTV's).
For Canadians who do not have Fox Kids or who missed the premier, YTV will be showing it on Sept. 4 at 7:30 PM EDT, while the premier for Gundam Wing will follow on the same day at 9:00 PM again on YTV. Whether the same episode as seen in the US will also be aired by YTV is completely unknown.
Otherwise, the premier for Canadians for Card Captors (Card Captor Sakura) is on Aug. 23 at 7:30PM MDT. Please check local listings for times in your area.
Lastly, shoujo manga Yami no Matsue by Matsushita Yoko is slated for an October start on Wowow in Japan. Which raises the question for the Cafe readers: How interested are you to hear about/read reviews on anime which is currently commercially available only in original Japanese form? If you have an opinion either way, feel free to send us an e-mail.

August already! Time does fly sometimes. There's a new review up for Sorcerous Stabber Orphen Episode 1. Likewise, there are new additions to the Parent's Guide for Kami Kaze Kaitoh Jeanne, Sorcerous Stabber Orphen, Meitantei Conan, and Kindaichi Shonen no Jikenbo.
On another note, NewType Magazine now has an English web-site up so for those interested in what's coming out in Japan, there's now a place to go. Information on the up-coming Ah! Megami-sama! movie can be found there, although information on the new Card Captor Sakura Movie 2: Fuuin Sareta Card can only be found on the Japanese site. For those interested in seeing clips of the new Card Captor Sakura Movie 2 as well as the new Ah! Megamisama Movie opening Oct 21, 2000, there are clips available at Shochiku Movie Theatres' site (Japanese only).
Fans of the shoujo manga series "Yami no Matsue" by Matsushita Yoko will be happy to hear that a TV anime series will be coming out based on the manga. More information will be forthcoming as we get it...
