Tenjho Tenge, Round Three DVD
Distributed by Geneon
Review by Tom Good
Maya, the beautiful leader of the Juken club, executes a flying leg scissors attack, crushing her opponent's head between her thighs. This move not-so-coincidentally causes her miniskirt to ride up and expose her panties, and the sequence features a ridiculous zoom and slow-motion effect. Back on her feet, she turns towards the "camera" and asks, "was the fan service a bit much?" The delivery of this line slyly suggests that the question might be coming from the actress who plays Maya and not the character, almost like this is an outtake. Here in volume three, Tenjho Tenge starts to poke a little fun at itself. [more]

For one thing, she didn't like to be hot, and the time when gardens in Delaware need the most attention is in July and August, when the temperatures run around 90F and the humidity around 100F.

Last fall, my students were doubly pleased when I made a connection between Berger's observations on oil painting and artwork generated using Poser, my 3D graphics obsession of choice.

Like soap operas, superhero comics are a notoriously conservative genre, even despite the celebration of such innovative imaginations as Grant Morrison, Alan Moore, or Warren Ellis.

My super-heroes were Amazons -- Wonder Woman and Troia -- because of what they represented to me. Wonder Woman wanted more than anything else in the world for human beings to peacefully coexist with each other. I can think of no greater sentiment than that, and that's why she's my hero.

One Little Sin
By Liz Carlyle
Published by Pocket Books
Review by Lynn Loper
I have one of those history major's problems with "One Little Sin".
Someone in the book mentions wondering if Wellington will resign, which places it between 1828 and 1830. And Lord (or maybe Sir; he's called both in the course of the book) Alasdair MacLachlan, who is Scottish, lives in London. I wonder why? I wonder if he would have been entirely welcome in London at this time? I know Scotland and things Scottish became popular during Victoria's reign, but she didn't ascend the throne until 1837. [more]
