Review by Ginger Mayerson

I've been trying to figure out a way to let y'all know how unspeakably cool I am because I saw the FMA movie two months before it hits the theaters. Yeah, me and the three thousand other people at AnimeExpo, and they seemed to understand it better than I did.

Don't get me wrong, I really liked it. I have a crush on Ed, Al is cute, Roy Mustang is hot, etc. My own personal problem, and no reflection on the anime, is that, as of July 3, 2006, I'd only seen about ten episodes of FMA. I'm remedying this as I write, I'm all the way up to Ep 20 (Al is screaming at Ed about killing people to create the Philosophers' Stone [and I think the guy voicing Scar in Japanese voiced Batu in Ghost in the Shell 2, mmmmm]). Anyway, even though there were events and characters in the FMA movie I didn't understand, there were also a few things in it I recognized just fine. Like, Hitler, Fritz Lang, Munich, and the Beer Hall Putsch. (You can look up Hitler and Munich your own selves.) [more]

Clan of the Nakagamis
by Homerun Ken
Digital Manga Publishing / June Manga

Review by Tom Good

Right from the start of this story, I felt I was in unfamiliar territory, and not only because I was a straight guy reading a yaoi manga. It was also because the narrative conventions I've come to expect from romantic fiction seemed to have disappeared. For example, most straight romances would feature a lot of uncertainty and angst (at least in the beginning) about how the romantic leads really felt about each other. But these two guys, Haruka and Tokio, seemed to be obviously crazy about each other from page one. So I began to wonder where the dramatic tension would come from. Perhaps a love triangle? But no plausible rival for either guy's affections ever materialized. Well, they are a teacher and student in a gay relationship, so I figured that the main plot must concern the danger of being found out. This is indeed what the story claims to be about, but the truth is more confusing. [more]
