Re: Thirty Years Ago: The Best Anime of 1988

Damn, not even a mention for Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040? I figured if that's the one thing to rant on from 1998 from certain people in fandom, it would be that show. I got no beef with Tokyo 2040, it's how I got to know about BGC in the first place before the OVA's, and I got no hate on that show....

Re: New City Hunter Movie announced for 2019!

Some of these shows that were a bit over the top I didn't get into. I have no idea why I didn't get into Cobra, but part of me is glad I didn't. It's still episode an somewhat simple, but TBH for early 80's the quality is pretty amazing, and it's got all kinds of stuff that anything coming out of Ja...

Re: Photos from a 1979 C/FO LA meeting

I remember it well. BOY do I remember it well. I think it actually got around to 85 Yen to the Dollar at one point. This happened during 2007-2008 as well. I remember receiving invoices from my deputy service, ShoppingMallJapan, and being in absolute tears. There was a lot of really nice production...

Michael Liu sounds like a doozy, honestly. I wanna read more but, uh, yeah. I gotta rest.
Link to his? I used to trade tapes with him via snail mail... and sent messages over FAX from time to time. (Prepared me for my 15 years inJapan). He was really into early 70's giant robot stuff.

Re: Project A-Kon II program book (1991)

Project A-Kon is still owned & operated by Meri Davis under the auspices of her "Phoenix Entertainment Media Group" - I don't know what legal organization ran Project A-Kon back in the day but she's been con chair since day one. Okay, that rings a bell. I believe maybe Donovan just ran the video ro...

Re: William Chow's vodcast series, History of Fan Anime in North America

Does he talk about all the drama he put into his subtitles ever? I'll watch over these at some point I guess... this guy is pretty hard core to say the least.

Re: Trailer up for IG's LOTGH

I realize I'm seriously late to the party here. Looks like I'd dislike this for the same reasons I disliked Yamato 2199 (but trudged through and finished). Anyone else hate modern character designs?

Re: New City Hunter Movie announced for 2019!

For someone that's going back to a lot of the series they missed in the 80's, is City Hunter one I should just start w/ the TV episodes and work up to the films? I did Cobra in chronological order. Watched the amazing by any standards film, then the TV which I'm close to done with. I suppose I'll do...

Re: Project A-Kon II program book (1991)

Very cool... My first A-kon was I think 3 (or maybe it was 4). I do recall the legendary fight after the water gun thing, so maybe I went to 4. I went to most of the minicons as well... admittedly though, most of what I did in those things dupe like 20 VHS tapes all weekend long. Oh, the good old da...
