Today I went ahead and completed my latest update of the entire List of Anime Television Series. I started this update several years ago then interrupted the process when I came up with the “new” look of the database in 2006. It was, I think, my fourth run through the entire list since I first began working on it in 1998.

Two new series have been added to the List of Anime Television Series. I can’t believe I forgot to add an entry for Hakaba Kitaro last January. Gegege no Kitaro, the children’s version of this series, was first broadcast in 1968. The 1996 version of the series was a real favorite of mine at the time. This new series is meant to be a lot closer to the original manga. The other new series has two special claims to fame. RoboDz Fuuun Hen is the first anime (in the American sense of the word) sponsored by Disney and the first all cgi series made by Toei Animation.
