One of the best manga/anime resources 

Well, if you are like me and enjoy reading about some philisophical and cultural musings on things, then I have the site for you. You must check out Rei's Anime and Manga Page. There is just so much on here that is worth reading through. He did writing for EX magazine (which unfortunately seems inactive for over a year), and has many good insights. Some highlights?

A listing of some topics/genres in anime/manga

Stereotypes in the west

Romanticism in Japan

2001 Workshop

A couple of good reviews:

Rose of Versailles

Cyborg 009 (now coming out in the US)

Yokohama Shopping Trip Log manga and anime

As well as links to some good older articles by others:

Time magazine on two mangas

Christian Science Monitor (of all people)

Lots of other stuff on there including some new articles with an anime director and his thoughts. Well, that was quite a lot of links right after my other post, but I'd guess most people haven't run into this site yet. I'd like to address some of the points in his articles, but am not quite sure where to start... ;)
