Re: Finally understanding "Big Eyes, Small Mouth" designs

Sorry to double-post - I meant to add that the game Big Eye Small Mouth (BESM) noticed this trend in a lot of anime around that time (the 80s), thus coining the phrase to title their anime roleplaying game.

Yes, this design ascetic has been around anime for quite some time. The phrase "big eye small mouth" comes from a table top roleplaying game that acted as a proxy for anime fans, the way that say Shadowrun was a proxy for cyberpunk fans.

Re: Oldschool OVAs You Wish Were Completed

One that I started thinking of when I first saw the thread title was One Pound Gospel . Takahashi wrote a couple volumes worth in the mid-80s and a single episode OAV was made based on it. However, she came back to it in the early 2000s, wrote two more volumes' worth to conclude the story. Having a ...

Re: Question About Tai Seng Video Marketing

All in all, a REALLY weird curiosity that didn't have much impact. It did answer one question I've been confused about though...this bit of info was passed around as fact for a LONG time: This movie is called "Dragon's Pearl." It was renamed & rereleased after the anime became popular in America. I...

Re: Your favorite sport manga

Yeah, Drew_Sutton, sadly those 2 vols were all Viz put out. I wish they'd consider reprinting them, those were excellent short story collections, even if we didn't get all of them. Ah, I was worried that was the case. I was just thinking tonight though, the anime for MIX is streaming, I'm curious w...

Re: What are you Watching?

If your laptop (I think you mentioned laptop recently) has HDMI, you can connect to your TV that way. I've done it a few times for some very specific things I am trying to stream. nope, no hdmi outlet. My laptop is a thinkpad from 2011-ish. I guess there are adapters, but I don't need it THAT much....
