Astral Animations

Sorry! I'm not in the business of designing animated GIFs, so you won't be finding anything here that you can download for your own pages. What you will find here are my takes and reviews of the various anime series and movies I've seen. I'll try to upload some graphics to each review, but these won't be mine! I'll be surfing through other sites and asking permission to use those graphics--sometimes I'm too conscientious and goody-goody for my own good--before they appear on my pages. If you have any of your own artwork that you're willing to loan me, please let me know. As long as it's tastefully done and reasonably faithful to the character, I'd be willing to post it.

Note: Japanese animation is very different from American animation. For one thing, the Japanese aren't afraid to address subjects that Americans fear even contemplating, such as sex and homosexuality. Japanese anime also doesn't hesitate to depict such scenes, although they don't exactly show everything.

Again, if you have any artwork--your own artwork--that you're willing to let me use, then please contact me.
