Animejin News - 19th May 1999


May - a month in which nothing happens

It's always a quiet. Exams are coming up so the kids are too busy revising
to be out buying videos. Plus the entire video industry has relocated to
Cannes for a week. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.


Sci-fi Channel anime season

One thing I do have is a list of the anime films that will be shown on the
Sci-fi channel in the next month or so:

21st May  : Wind of Amnesia
28th May  : Street Fighter 2
4th June  : Secret of Mamo
11th June : Space Adventure Cobra
18th June : Shadow Skill The Movie
25th June : Megazone 23

All showings are at midnight, which means that satelite viewers will not be
able to see them. Further details can be found on the Sci-fi channel web
site at .
