2nd Anime & Game Exhibition (AGE) will be held at Surabaya again (thank God!). Previously, it'll take place on July 10 to 15. According to a staff of Gundam Best Shop (who is the sponsor of this exhibition) AGE will be delayed due to some reason of political condition in Indonesia which is still unstable. If it's delayed, then AGE will be held sometimes on October. Well, I hope it's not delayed, because I've prepared my saving to buy as many Anime merchandise as I can there. ^_^

Pokemon TV series begins to be aired on SCTV March 3,2001. The series is broadcasted every Saturday and Sunday on 7 PM. However, there're only 26 episodes temporarily, according to SCTV. Too bad, it's been dubbed into Indonesian (again), and even worse, they also change the characters' name, as follows: - the main hero, "ASH" renamed into "ALI" ! What !? From Satoshi into Ash, and now...ALI !? They (SCTV) said, their purpose was to Indonesian-nize the series. *sigh*
- Ash's rival, "GARY" renamed into "GERI". Well, it's not so different than the original, at least for the spelling. ^_^ - Gary's grandfather, Prof."OAK" renamed into "OKIDO". Hm...this one sounds like the Japanese... I don't know about the others, because the series just started. What, you're asking 'bout the Pokemon's dub ? Nope, I think it's not dubbed, at least for Pikachu's voice. ^_^

Card Captor Sakura The Movie aired on TPI at December 31,2000. Too bad, it's been dubbed in Indonesian. (I prefer the Subtitled version rather than the current Dubbed version! ^_^)

Hotaru no Haka (Grave of the Fireflies) was screened at the Jakarta International Film Festival (Jiffest). People who came were mostly between 14-35 years old. Unfortunately the sound quality wasn't so good. Perhaps the film wasn't kept properly...
Last year Perfect Blue was screened at the first Jiffest. It was so popular the venue was moved to a bigger theatre to accomodate the demand.
