ANIMENEXT MATCHES TSUNAMI RELIEF DONATIONS
AnimeNEXT, the largest independently organized anime convention in the New York metropolitan area, has announced a campaign to make donations to UNICEF, The United Nations Children’s Fund, for tsunami victims in South East Asia. Douglas Lu, President of Universal Animation, the non-profit group that organizes the event, said, "The mission of Universal Animation and AnimeNEXT is to bring awareness of Japanese and Asian culture to our attendees. I thought getting donations to UNICEF, would be a great way to make our attendees aware of the plight of tsunami victims."
AnimeNEXT will match the donations made from their website, up to $5000. Lu added, "AnimeNEXT is a fan-based not-for-profit organization. I can’t think of a better way to exhibit good will and bring some understanding of what has happened in Asia."
Donations can be made directly at AnimeNEXT’s website, www.animenext.org. These donations will go right to UNICEF. AnimeNEXT was careful to choose a charitable organization that everyone would be familiar with and is aiding victims of the tsunami directly.
With the immediate survival stage of the crisis response largely — and very successfully — completed, UNICEF expects to spend a minimum of $300 million on tsunami recovery over the next 36 months. This longer-term effort will include the restoration of schools, health centers, safe water systems and other fundamental services that keep children alive and well.
Your money can help children in the following ways; $5 can provide an emergency health kit for one person for three months, with medical supplies and drugs to cover basic health needs, or $87 can provide a basic family water kit for ten households, with detergent, soap, wash basin, towels, bucket and water purification tablets.
Universal Animation, the non-profit group that organizes AnimeNEXT is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the appreciation of Anime and Manga in the United States. Founded in 2002 in NYC, Universal Animation is responsible for planning AnimeNEXT, which is held annually in the Tristate (NY/NJ/CT) area. Universal Animation is an independent organization with no affiliation to any commercial entities.
The Board of Directors is composed of professionals in many disparate industries, including Finance, the US Government, Education, and Information Technology.

VIZ TO RELEASE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST MANGA
Original manga series that inspired popular anime program to be the first of several unique related offerings due for release this year
San Francisco, CA, February 18, 2005 – VIZ, LLC, which recently announced its upcoming merger with ShoPro Entertainment, Inc. to form one of the entertainment industry's most innovative, comprehensive manga and animation licensing and publishing companies, has announced the highly anticipated debut of the manga for FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST, due for release in May 2005. The graphic novel by Himoru Arakawa will be rated “T” for teens with an MSRP of $9.95.
FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST is one of the most successful and popular on-going manga titles, selling more than 8 million copies to-date in Japan. The mystic blend of art, magic and science that is alchemy is the basis for FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST. The story begins with two young brothers named Edward and Alphonse as they try to use an alchemy technique called "human transmutation" to raise their mother from the dead with tragic consequences. As a result of a miscalculation, fifteen-year-old Edward loses his left leg and fourteen-year-old Alphonse loses his entire body. Immediately after the accident Edward sacrifices his right arm to save Alphonse’s soul, which is transmuted into a suit of armor that becomes his new body. Edward replaces his missing limbs with a biomechanical technology called auto-mail that gives him a new bionic arm and leg. The action begins as the pair heads to Central City in search of the Philosopher’s Stone, an object of immeasurable power and the only thing that can return the siblings to their natural states. But in this futuristic alternate world, the use of alchemy is widespread. Evil forces seek the magical stone and will use any ruthless means to try and thwart the two brothers from reaching their goal.
FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST began in 2000 in the pages of renowned video game manufacturer Square Enix’s monthly RPG (role playing game) manga magazine, Shonen Gangan. The popularity of manga, which is still ongoing, inspired the 51-episode anime series and a vast collection of related merchandise that include video games, action figures, apparel and a trading card game. A FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST video game for PS2 was released domestically in January 2005 by Square Enix and a full-length feature movie is now in production for future release.
“VIZ is thrilled to have acquired the rights to bring the compelling action and drama of the FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST graphic novel series to North American audiences.” states Anthony Jiwa, director of marketing for VIZ. “Based on the success of the anime series in North America and the ongoing anticipation by fans for the release of the unique manga series that was it’s inspiration, we expect FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST graphic novels will find success among teens and young adults and look forward to gaining the interest of new fans and delighting old ones.”
The anime series of FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST, based on the manga, currently airs on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim and has captivated a dedicated legion of fans in North America and generated great anticipation for the debut of this graphic novel. VIZ will further support the debut with a series of FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST novelizations due out in October 2005, and a hard cover, full color ART of FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST to be published in November.

-de gozaru is a phrase most Rurouni Kenshin fans will recognize. It is a somewhat archaic form of desu (to be). People who speak some Japanese will probably recognize a form of this verb from such expressions as omedetou gozaimasu (congratulations) and ohayou gozaimasu (good morning).
Because of its archaic style, -de gozaru is often associated with historical drama. As mentioned above, Kenshin uses -de gozaru continuously, and it can occasionally be heard in Akira Kurosawa's films, such as Ran and The Seven Samurai.
Use of -de gozaru is more or less similar to desu, for example: "Watashi wa Tanaka desu" (I am Tanaka) is equivalent to "Watashi wa Tanaka de gozaimasu". gozaimasu is a more polite form of the verb than the dictionary form, gozaru. Since desu is the all-purpose verb in Japanese, it is not surprising to hear -de gozaru coming so often from Kenshin.
As a final note, it's probably worth mentioning that -de gozaru and desu both mean "to be" in the sense of "equals", as in "I am Tanaka", above (me = Tanaka). They do not appear in the sense of "to become", such as "I want to be a teacher" which would be formed with naru (Watashi wa sensei ni naritai). They are not used either in the sense of location, such as "I am in Kyoto", which would be formed with iru (Watashi wa Kyoto ni imasu).
This Japanese insult is similar to baka but also a little different: it is closer to "mentally retarded" than to the "jerk" meaning often associated with baka.
As an example, "Ahou" is also the name of the mystic force found in the anime Photon. And it isn't a coincidence that the main character, Photon, who possesses great Ahou power and/or is impervious to it, seems indeed to be a little dim-witted. "Ahou" could then be taken to refer to "the power of stupidity".
