Nikkou's Choice

Nikkou's no-frill page of
Random, Arbitary Links

      Every now and then, an e-mail arrives asking for help on where to obtain anime/manga information online. Some of them, including personal mail, invariably get lost when there's an avalanche of mail. (Or rather, I feel lost and give up. ;_;) While my friends and family have no qualms about writing again (Hullo? Earth calling Mars?), I know most others wouldn't want to intrude. In the hope of addressing some of those queries, I have below some links as start points.

      Also, try asking at rec.arts.anime.misc, rec.arts.manga or, whichever might be appropriate. For more newsgroups go here, and there are mailing lists here.
