Began Fall 1992

Urameshi Yuusuke, 14 years of age, is about as troublesome and violent as teenagers come. He is constantly ditching school, causing uproar, and getting into numerous fights everyday. One day however, he does the unexpected: sacrificing himself to save a young child. Such an action was never ever expected, especially coming from someone as troublesome as Yuusuke. The afterlife is not prepared for Yuusuke, as they never thought he would make such a sacrifice. Nowhere to go, and dead, Yuusuke becomes a ghost and must earn his way back into existence.

Yuusuke is "employed" by Koenma, who is in charge while his father and ruler of the afterlife, King Enma, is away. Under Koenma's command, Yuusuke helps to stop menacing demons that threaten the lives of people everywhere - whether by stealing priceless and invaluable items and destructive weapons, or by wreaking havoc on humans.

Throughout Yuusuke's journey, he is usually joined by his arch-rival, and local bully, Kuwabara Kazuma; he is also joined by two demons named Hiei and Kurama, who are ex-convicts of the afterlife that managed to escape from Koenma.

This group of unlikely allies goes on to participate and struggle in battles that have outcomes that determine the fate of humanity!

  4. Slice of Life

Crayon Shin-chan follows the wacky antics and adventures of five-year-old Shinnosuke "Shin" Nohara and his parents, neighbors, and friends and is set in Kasukabe, Saitama Prefecture, Japan.

Many of the jokes in the series stem from Shin-chan's occasionally weird, unnatural and inappropriate use of language, as well as from his inappropriate behavior. A typical gag involves Shin-chan confounding his parents by using the wrong phrase for the occasion; for example, saying "Welcome back!" instead of "I am back!" when he comes home.

During the beginning of the series, the TV show was mostly based on the storyline in the original manga. As the show progressed, more and more episodes became anime-original.

Kei was coming off her fourth probation for something she had done, and Yuri's dating exploits were common knowledge, not to mention the two had an instant dislike for each other when they met.

At first, Kei and Yuri refused to work with each other, and Kei even resigned from the 3WA. Afterwards, the two continued to work together, although they earned their nickname, "the Dirty Pair" because of all the collateral damage the two (unintentionally) cause in the completion of their cases. And even though the two now get along with one another, they continue to bicker and complain to each other.

Although it is often said that these are younger versions of the original Lovely Angels Kei and Yuri, in truth this series is an alternate universe telling of Dirty Pair, set in the years 2248-49.

Think of this show as the Japanese equivalent to "The Partridge Family" and you'll get a good feel for this show's atmosphere. Don't expect to see things like violence, swearing, kung-fu action or magical girls. The plots are more like "Today, Sazae-san goes to the new mall and gets lost". Such "boring" plotlines and the simplistic art are often a turn-off to non-Japanese audiences, but most Japanese find the show incredibly good. As a result, it continues to be one of the top ratings grabbers on TV and is one of the few anime that is considered "acceptable" by adults.

My Melody no Ookami-san ni Ki wo Tsukete

  1. Tags TBD
  • Studio TBA
April 20, 1994 EDT

My Melody's mother sends her out to take a cake with her to a birthday party, but the smell of the cake is picked up by Wolf, who is hungry and plots to steal it. While she sings along her way, Wolf follows behind My Melody, hiding behind trees and bushes to keep his presence unknown. From the bushes, he attempts to steal the basket My Melody is carrying the cake in to no avail. Soon My Melody passes by Hunter and stops to say hello. Running past and attempting to pick up the basket, Wolf believes he's been successful, until he realises that he's actually picked up Hunter's dog, who bits him on the arm. Wolf continues to try and remain covert, trying grab the basket while swinging past on a rope, then attempting to take it from My Melody with a fishing rod. Both of these attempts lead to unpleasant encounters with Hunter, including being shot.

It is at this point Wolf moves on to more creative ideas, creating disguises. First he dresses up in drag and pretends to cry as My Melody approaches. My Melody is concerned and eager to help, this plan almost succeeds but before Wolf can take a bite out of the cake, Hunter comes along and identifies Wolf. The second disguise Wolf tries is dressing himself up as a fortune teller, attracting My Melody's interest. However, while raising his crystal ball, Wolf catches fire due to the sunlight being concentrated through it, giving him bigger problems to worry about and allowing My Melody to deliver the birthday cake safely.

After this final failed attempt, Wolf limps back to his cave. On arrival, Wolf finds that My Melody has visited, and left some presents and a cake for him to eat. Seeing this excites Wolf and he jumps with joy until he falls over and the short ends.
