Issue nine tackles the subject of how Japanese animation influenced
western animation during the eighties with the East Meets West
theme! When American studios outsourced their shows during the eighties
the face of animation worldwide changed forever! The first part of a

working together, with many visual examples of what
constitutes "anime influences". Other articles take an in-depth
look at the designs of Studio Ox on The
Transformers; how the cast of Battle of the
Planets made a unique comeback in the mid-nineties; and
an overall look at Mysterious Cities of Gold.
Other shows covered include BraveStarr, Captain
Future, Dungeons & Dragons,
He-Man, MASK, Mighty
Mouse, Mighty Orbots, The
Real Ghostbusters, and ThunderCats.
