On April 23 it became apparent
that the former leader in the quest to bring the latest Anime
news to the World Wide Web, the Anime News Network, was down for
the count. Just a week after announcing one of the most eagerly-anticipated
announcements concerning Sailor Moon's bright future in the
English market, ANN quietly disappeared behind a plain white page
reading "disabled index." Signs of trouble were hinted
two weeks prior, when news stories were not posted regularly. On
the week of April 17th, the Editor-in-Chief posted an editorial
about how he had let down the anime community by letting the news
Follow-up story: On May 1st, the Anime News Network was brought back from the cyber-void it had fallen into. The stories from April 17th were still present, thought no new articles had been added. It is unclear at this time as to what caused ANN to go offline.

In March, ANIMEfringe announced

help with her parent's mounting debt, was tentatively titled Bionic

Nurse Nanako." The 16-and-up rated, first volume Amazing

In other related news, the re-release
of the two 3x3 Eyes OAV series is nearly complete. The

set with gatefold slip-sleeve packaging. Though the first volume
will only be released on VHS subtitled and dubbed, a DVD box set
which will contain both OAV series will be released at the same
time or shortly after the VHS release of the 2nd OVA series,
which is still in production. Inside sources reveal, "...some
