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!
Feature: Nanako Kaitai Shinsyo
"OMEGA" Arnold, a look at a new anime from Pioneer
and a domestic release in the works by New
(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?

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
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.
