Anime's Cornerstone, Part 2
by Mr. Eclect
The episodes in this collection are even better than Volume 1,so if you've seen and enjoyed it, buy with confidence(or, if you're unsure of why you should watch an old black-and-white show, see my review of Volume 1)!
Let me just say a big 'Thanks!' to RightStuf for the phenomenal and Herculean task of restoring and rescuing these episodes from oblivion; to have lost these episodes would be the equivalent of losing 'Beowulf' or 'The Tale of Genji'. Be proud of your work!
I'll mention one stand-out episode--the 'Cosmic Ray' episode, which has one or two genuinely creepy moments(a proto-type Alucard for you 'Hellsing' fans),but 'Astro Boy' tells a diversity of good adventure stories. Check this one out!
