Re: Cassette Girl

As far as I know, none of the Animator Expo shorts have gotten an English release. Which is such a shame, if they were available & affordable I'd love to own one!

RIP iconic screenwriter Keiko Nobumoto

Heartbreaking to hear that well known writer for anime Keiko Nobumoto has passed away from cancer. She helped write some well beloved anime, like Cowboy Bebop and Tokyo Gothfathers. :(

Re: Anime soundtracks that were never released to CD?

There's quite a few soundtracks that either 1. Didn't get a CD release or 2. Got an incomplete CD release later. Most of these are less popular, though every once in a while a more popular title does end up having 1 or 2 happen. I follow one YT channel that uploads not only rare Japanese music press...

Re: Sexism in early anime fandom

Since this thread began as Aurechan asking for examples of women's experiences & it's gotten a bit off-course, I'm going to lock this thread for now. If any members would like to help Aurechan in her studies with examples of their lived experiences, please send her a private message!

Re: Sexism in early anime fandom

It's interesting for you to say that you got all this criticism when you started podcasting, but you got your community built up where you're far more successful than you were when you first started. I had you on my podcast years back as a guest to talk about stuff we collect/horde lol when you wer...

Re: Sexism in early anime fandom

The thing with anime is that it is a medium & not a genre--there are plenty of genres I do not care for, many of which are pretty popular with other groups. People think being an anime fan means you need to have a love of ALL anime, which I've never really understood. I love certain MOVIES, I do...

Re: Sexism in early anime fandom

It hasn't always been women who have gone through this sort of thing, men too have probably experienced this without us even knowing about it. But now that we're older, we can see how really ugly some (but not all) female anime fans were when we growing up. I guarantee you that other guys have gone...

Re: How did JoJo's Bizarre Adventure become popular again?

The original OAVs (OVAs?) were an old-school favorite, but by the time I became involved as an anime middle-schooler, they didn't seem very popular or well known. There was a movie in 2007, but apparently it wasn't very good... then 19 years later, they start spitting out a new series every couple ...
