    Welcome to the Witch Hunter Robin guide. To most of Society, Witches are nothing more than myths and legends of a bygone era. However, there are a few people who possess the Witch genome; a gene that may give the person special, supernatural abilities. For them, a secret organization named Solomon (STN) was formed to track and hunt them down before they became a threat to the rest of Society. The story follows the members of the STN-J, the Japanese branch of Solomon. Unlike other branches of the STN, the STN-J captures Witches alive. Armed with a substance called Orbo, an invention developed by Administrator Zaizen, the Hunters subdue the Witches of Japan and send them to a facility called the Factory. It was during one of these Hunts that a member of the team was killed. With morale falling, Solomon Headquarters sends a new Hunter from Italy to join the STN-J as a replacement for the fallen Hunter; a young girl named Robin Sena. Robin is only 15 years old, but she is already a gifted Craft User. When she first joins the team, she is met with mistrust and impatience by the other members of the STN-J. With the recent heavy Witch activity in Japan, however, the team is kept very busy. Robin's determination and skill with her Craft, which is the ability to create and manipulate fire, slowly gains the trust of the other members. As the Witch activity increases, it soon becomes apparent there is more going on under the surface. With the futures of both Witches and Hunters alike, it may well be Robin who holds the key to everyone's survival. Main Characters Robin Sena: The youngest member of the STN-J team, she was sent to Japan as a replacement for a fallen Hunter. Although she was born in Japan, she was raised in an Italian convent by Father Juliano, one of the heads of Solomon. She is a special class of Hunter, called a Craft User. Her power is Fire. Amon: The team leader and, along with Ms. Karasuma, one of the most experienced Hunters. Keeping mostly to himself, even the other team members do not know much about his private life. He relies mostly on his Orbo gun, but it is suspected that he has a strong power. His power is unknown. Miho Karasuma: The team's second in command, she takes her mission as a Hunter seriously. Because she has a somewhat motherly personality, one of the other members joked about her being the ‘old lady', much to her chagrin, since she is only 19 years old. Like Robin, she is also a Craft User. Her power is to Scrye; the psychic ability to pick up information from people or objects. Yurika Dojima: As a favor to her parents, who are members of the Japanese Cabinet, Ms. Dojima was offered a job at the STN-J. Because of her status, she's treated as ‘special' around the office, to which she takes full advantage of; lazing about, reading magazines, coming in late and such. Unlike the other members of the team, she just barley qualifies as a Hunter. She has no known special abilities. Haruto Sakaki: Enthusiastic about being a Hunter, Sakaki's brashness often causes him to get himself hurt or cause some sort of property damage. Often scolded by the Chief for his latest set of infractions, Sakaki nonetheless continues to try his best. Like Dojima, he has very little ability and no known special ability. Michael Lee: Although not a Hunter, Michael is nevertheless an important part of the team. A computer hacker, he had hacked into STN-J's network and discovered the secret organization's existence. Captured by the STN-J's agents, he was given a choice by Zaizen: either join the organization and never leave the premises, or be put to death. Choosing life, Michael became an invaluable part of the team, getting the information they need for a job and beefing up the network's own systems. Chief Kosaka: The office manager who runs the day-to-day operations of the STN-J, he serves under Administrator Zaizen. His goal is to run the office as efficiently as possible, which often puts him at odds with Dojima. Although overbearing, he is, under it all, an understanding and resourceful person. Takuma Zaizen: The Administrator of STN-J, he oversees both the operation of the Japanese branch of the STN and the Factory, the facility where captured Witches are taken to. He is also continuing the research and refining of Orbo, the substance which is used to subdue Witches. He also has some deep, dark secrets about the Orbo which he is keeping from Solomon Headquarters.moreless

    The world is slowly dying... In a post-apocalyptic future where humans live in large domed cities surrounded by wasteland, wolves are believed to have been extinct for 200 years. But some wolves still remain. These wolves live by disguising themselves as humans to survive. Wolf's Rain is the story of four wolves, Kiba, Tsume, Hige and Toboe, who will follow the scent of the lunar flower on a quest to find paradise. Opening Theme: "Stray" performed by Steve Conte Ending Theme: "Gravity" performed by Maaya Sakamoto "Stray" Lyrics In the cold breeze, That I walk alone, The memories of generation burn within me. Been forever Since I cried the pain of sorrow, I'll live and die, by the pride my people gave me. I'm here standing on the edge, Staring up at where the moon should be. Oooooooooh! Stray! No regrets cause I've got nothing to lose. (Nothing to lose!) Ever stray! So I'm gonna live my life as I choose. (Life as I choose!) Until I fall. Stray! Straaaaaaaaaaaay! "Gravity" Lyrics Been a long road to follow, Been there and gone tomorrow, Without saying goodbye to yesterday. Are the memories I hold still valid? Or have the tears deluded me? Maybe this time tomorrow, The rain will cease to follow, And the mist will fade into a new today. Something somewhere out there keeps calling, Am I going home? Will I hear someone singing solace to the silent moon? Zero gravity what's it like? Am I alone? Is somebody there beyond these heavy aching feet, Still the roads keeps on telling me to go on. Something is pulling me, I feel the gravity of it all. Characters Kiba (Fang): Kiba is the white wolf. He is tough and stubborn. Even though the group has no real leader, he seems to be the one leading them. He will face any danger to get to paradise. Kiba believes in Cheza the most. Tsume (Claw): Tsume, who originally lived among the humans, is cold and independent. He doesn't really believe in paradise but goes along anyway. Tsume's identifying feature is a cross shaped scar on his chest. Hige (Whisker): Hige is rational and doesn't like to rush into things. He always seems to be looking for food or women. Hige's identifying feature is his collar around his neck. Toboe (Howling): Toboe is the youngest of the four. He is kind and loyal. The others in the group call him runt because sometimes he slows the group down. Toboe's identifying feature is a bracelet on his right hand. Cheza (The Flower Maiden): We first meet Cheza in a research lab. She is suspended inside a glass sphere. She can hear the wolves and calls out to them. Cheza will lead the wolves to paradise. Blue: Blue was Quent Yaiden's dog. As Quent's dog she could sense wolves and helped him hunt them down. But one day she met Cheza and realized she was part wolf. After that she could take human form. Quent Yaiden: Quent believes his village was burned down by wolves. For revenge he plans to hunt down all wolves and kill them. Cher Degri: Cher is one of the scientists first seen studying Cheza. Her obsession with Cheza and the "Book of the Moon" strained her marriage to Hubb. Hubb Lebowski: Hubb is a police investigator. He is Cher's ex-husband. He is still in love with Cher and follows her after she disappears. Darcia: Darcia is a noble. He wants Cheza for himself. At first his motives are unknown. He is often wearing a mask that covers his face. Guide Editor:LadyL Thank You to all who have contributed to this guide. Note:If you are going to contribute to this guide please check your spelling.

    The tight-knit Oblong clan lives in Hill Valley, a toxic valley downstream from your typical industrial waste site, which has caused a variety of bizarre physical and emotional abnormalities. At the head of the dinner table is the loving, limbless, tirelessly upbeat patriarch Bob Oblong and his adoring, alcohol-and-tobacco-addicted, bald-but-beautifully-wigged wife Pickles, who frequents the Rusty Bucket bar, owned by transexual Anita Bidet (who was originally to be named Sofonda Cox!). The family includes their conjoined twin sons Biff and Chip, who share three legs and three buttocks, but can't seem to agree on anything; sweet, tattling, 4-year-old daughter Beth, sporting a cucumber-like growth sprouting from her head; and youngest son Milo, a one-haired optimist who has every childhood emotional disorder and behavioral problem ever diagnosed. Other members of the family include Bob's mother, Grammy, who's a vegetable; Milo's narcoleptic scottie dog, Scottie; and the chain-smoking family cat, Lucky. Milo used to go to a special school for "the pathologically high-spirited," but now enjoys his days at "normal" school with fellow valley outcasts including the zaftig, toad-like Helga Phugly; gothic and death-obsessed Creepy Susie; bulbous-bottomed Mikey Butts; and brainy, spitting, lower-jaw-lacking Peggy Weggy. Milo and the gang constantly clash with the Debbies, a giggling gaggle of wealthy, popular, seemingly cloned "hill" girls of the same first name. As far as the Debbies and their parents are concerned, anything that isn't perfect - like them - isn't worthy of their attention. "Normal" school is headed by Principal Davis. Other members of the school staff include Nurse Rench, who has a scary operating contraption in place of her right arm, and the homeroom teacher, Leland. Aside from hanging out in the clubhouse in the Oblongs'back yard, the kids often find themselves hanging out at the local store "A to Zed." Bob's disregarding boss at Globocide Industries is the aristocratic father, George Klimer. His wife, Pristine, is a Barbie-like, former Debbie, who used to be school friends with Pickles when both girls lived in the hills - before Pickles married Bob and joined the "grotesque" side. Their attractive daughter, Debbie, is leader of the Debbies; and their not-too-bright but popular son Jared, together with his best friend Blaine, is a well-coifed tormentor of the Clubhouse kids. Executive producer Bruce Helford ("The Drew Carey Show," "Norm[show]," "[show]Nikki") and writer/executive producer Jace Richdale ("The Simpsons") bring to animated life the strange world of underground cartoonist Angus Oblong. Created by Oblong and Richdale, this half-hour comedy series is executive produced by Helford, Richdale and Deborah Oppenheimer ("The Drew Carey Show," "Norm," "Nikki"), for Oblongs Productions, Inc. in associate with Mohawk Productions and Jobsite Productions, distributed by Warner Bros. Television. Mary V. Buck and Susan Edelman are the winners of The Casting Society of America's, award for "Best Casting for Animated Television Voiceover" for The Oblongs. The Oblongs is inspired by characters in the book "Creepy Susie and 13 Other Tragic Tales for Troubled Children" by Angus Oblong. Milo, Susie, Helga, the Debbies, and Milo's Narcoleptic Scottie all originated in this book, which is aimed at adults in the guise of a children's book.

    Buffy Summers, the Vampire Slayer, has just arrived in Sunnydale, California. Now she has to figure out how to balance dating, school, a social life, and fighting the forces of evil. Y'know... typical teenage stuff. These are the adventures that happened between the episodes of the hit series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. In 2005, Joss Whedon (creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Firefly) and Jeph Loeb (writer and producer of Smallville) reported that Buffy the Animated Series was in development at Fox Studios. The basic premise for the show was defined by Jeph Loeb as "Buffy: Year One." These episodes were to go back to the first year that the Slayer arrived in Sunnydale and tell the stories that we did not get to see. The biggest difference between this and the first season of the live action series was to be the inclusion of Dawn Summers, Buffy's younger sister. When Dawn was created in Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 5, memories were altered so that everyone would remember her being there from the beginning. These stories would have included Dawn in order to reflect these new memories. In early 2006, Joss announced that the project was dead because they were unable to find a network to buy the series.moreless

In certain Dexter's Laboratory episodes, the middle segment would either be a Dial M For Monkey episode or a Justice Friends episode. These segments would often cross over into one another, creating a pretty hilarious universe of characters. During his adventures, Monkey is forced to confront many dangerous enemies. With the help of trusted special agent Honeydew, Monkey faced-off against Huntor, the self-described "ultimate cosmic hunter;" Magmanamus, a grumpy lava creature; Orgon Grindor, a musician with an evil streak; Rasslor, the intergalactic wrestling champ; Barbequor, a hungry deity looking to devour earth; and Peltra, a female foe dead set on skinning Monkey for his precious fur.
