Re: New City Hunter Movie announced for 2019!

Back when City Hunter was getting North American DVD releases it seemed like anime fandom was widely divergent in its opinion- I recall people loving the show, and people hating the show. Myself, I can take it or leave it. It's fine in small doses, after a while the comedy gets stale and the sillin...

Re: Sentai licenses Dunbine

I don't think I'm telling tales out of school when I say Neil N. translated a lot of Tatsunoko stuff for Sentai, and a lot of what he did hasn't appeared in any release yet. And dang it, the suspense is killing me! Yeah didn't Funi get the rights to those quite some time ago?! I keep wondering when...

Petition to save the real shrine from Pom Poko!

In an odd case of life imitating art, the real life shrine featured in Isao Takahata's Pom Poko is in danger of getting torn down to make an expanded parking lot! There's a petition that Japanese residents are passing around, and anyone from around the world can sign it: https://t.co/8CtXAusNCW

Re: Convention Appearances 2018

Looks like I'll be going to ACEN as well. The guest list, combined with the fact that I had to already reserve the time off work to go to Animazement, made it worth it. My friend's company, Sekai Project, are the ones bringing over Yokota and Yoshimatsu. They'll probably have commission slots. Inde...

Re: How many of us kept their old collections?

Pioneer/Geneon released those in the US years ago. You can probably find used copies for cheap on E-bay. The old Pioneer/Geneon DVD releases are actually still going for a lot on the second-hand market because people who grew up with them want those old dubs. A glance on eBay shows people still ask...

Re: How many of us kept their old collections?

Excluding the final season, the entire series has been released and is in the process of being re-released by Viz. Does that include the movies? I don't think I've seen them on Amazon or Rightstuf. Pioneer/Geneon released those in the US years ago. You can probably find used copies for cheap on E-b...

Re: Kimagure Orange Road Kickstarter

Is this illness they are talking about the same one he has suffered from for most of his life? I guess his previous tough period that rendered him inactive for years indicates that he may get better this time around as well, although it may take a very long time. I hope he does in any case.

Re: Kimagure Orange Road Kickstarter

I just don't know what to think about this situation any more :? Heartbreaking to hear (or rather, not to hear anything?) about Matsumoto-sensei's condition. YEAH and they really could have worded it better--I had to read that line about Matsumoto being "struck down" by illness 3 times because I th...
