ANIME 95 IS THE SCI-FI CHANNEL'S third annual festival of Japanese animated films. These intriguing visions run for five consecutive nights starting Mon., May 15 (9 p.m. ET each night). First up is Demon City Shinjuku, in which a young martial artist must battle the evil creatures who rule over downtown Tokyo in the future. Lily C.A.T. follows the crew of a spaceship in 2264 as they emerge from deep sleep to find they have a new passenger. In the spectacular Casshan: Robot Hunter, androids reign over mankind in a desolate future. 8-Man After is a private-eye yarn in which brutal cyborgs are the new criminal class. Finally, there's Project A-Ko Battles Grey Side and Blue Side, in which a female superhero must rescue a tycoon's daughter from space pirates. Tune in any night and grab an eyeful of wizardry.
