ANIMEfringe: March 2000

For March, ANIMEfringe profiles a new project coming down the pipeline from Pioneer Entertainment and New Generation Pictures called Nanako Kaitai Shinsyo: Medical Comedy Love Action which looks to be awesome! Enjoy!

ANIMEfringe Feature: Nanako Kaitai Shinsyo
By Adam "OMEGA" Arnold, a look at a new anime from Pioneer and a domestic release in the works by New Generation Pictures.

Meet Nanako (Maria Yamamoto), an ordinary high-school student... until her parents run into financial problems. So, the well-endowed young girl must take a job to help out with her parent's mounting debt. This reluctant job is a nurse's position at a 'highly suspicious hospital' that is run by the mad scientist, Kyoji Ogami, who also has a policy of hiring some other very odd doctors and experimenting with mecha. Nanako seems to be up against the wall with no other choice but to do her job. But will she be able to see the end of this mess?

Breaking News:

On February 25th, ANIMEfringe received a press release from Jonathan Klein, Vice-President of New Generation Pictures, and speaking on behalf of Pioneer LDC, regarding their pick for voice director for the upcoming domestic release of the two 3x3 Eyes OVA Series. Message follows:

February 25, 2000

New Generation Pictures and Pioneer Entertainment (USA) L.P. are happy to announce that the voice director for the English language re-release of both 3x3 Eyes OVA series will be Greg Weisman. For those of you unfamiliar with Greg Weisman, he was the creator, producer & writer of the successful, long running, U.S. Animated series, Gargoyles. A large number of Anime fans consider this American animated series to be the most "anime-like" with its complex characters and intricate tapestry of story lines that carry over from one episode to another. More recently, Greg has written and directed stories for other animated series such as Men In Black, Starship Troopers and the brand new computer generated animated series Max Steel, (which he also co-prouced) which premieres on the WB Network this weekend. Before getting involved in animation, Greg Weisman was also a comic book writer for DC Comics in the late 80's where he wrote Captain Atom.

Both Pioneer Entertainment (USA) L.P. and New Generation Pictures feel that having Greg Weisman's talent and experience to help produce this new English version of both 3x3 Eyes OVA series will be a major step forward in helping to improve the quality of dubbing and at the same time help to bring anime more into the mainstream of America.

3x3 Eyes will also be released in a VHS subtitled and DVD format. A release date has yet to announced but it will be probably released late Summer or early Fall. This new release will be uncut and unedited, unlike the previous Streamline Pictures version.
