*New Site Additions* has launced a new site section; anime and manga. Anime and Manga refer to comic books and animation of a Japanese origin. The section highlights the Robotech/Macross related sagas that are truly among the finest human tales ever conceived. Robotech is not a very well known animated TV saga but it has inspired much fanfare and enthusiasm for almost all that have seen it. Robotech was a seamless blending together of three unrelated animated TV shows into a single epic tale. Incredible editing and creative skill was required to do this. A robotech movie also was considered in 1985 and it too would have been composed of much editing and compiling. Robotech really does illustrate the art of fine film editing to a tea. In Macross or the first part of the Robotech saga an alien vessel crahslands on the Earth bringing a common union of all man forged in fear of future alien attack. And the aliens do come, as giants known as the Zentraedi, built as clones, and forged for war.

Rocky Balboa from the Rocky movies serves as more than just the proverbial sweat and grunt fighter. In's Rocky pages at detailed coverage of the Rocky saga, songs, and the legend is presented. Rocky was a film written by Sylvester Stalone in which he insisted on starring in even though he was offered more money for just the script leaving another actor playing the lead role. This gamble of insisting on starring in the movie himself launched his career and launched a legend.
