Prominance of Beta in Anime Tape Trading

I was listening to a wrestling podcast recently and there was a discussion about tape trading on the episode. There were some comments made by the host that I thought was pretty interesting - but also led me to some questions. The full segment is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zHxXNC4H6Q The...

Re: Macross II, Macross Plus, Macross 7, Macross Frontier, & Macross Delta to get released in America!

Yeah, I would say the most annoying thing about the post Macross 7s are those CG mechas...I mean, I'm not against the use of CG when applied carefully, but none of those 2000s Macrosses really seemed to do it right. Now the modern Gundams, they do it right. My attitude is: if I wanted CGI mecha, I'...

Re: The 1976 New York Star Trek Convention aka DisasterCon

Great write-up, Fireminer. Hilarious to read about shows that wind up sounding like real disasters. Some fun take-aways from this: By every account, STC was a smashing success. It attracted 160,000 attendees and earned in excess of $100,000. Even Trekkies who did not attend and non-Star Trek SF fans...

Re: C/FO's 45th anniversary?

I am slowly starting to wonder, what can be said about the C/FO that hasn't already? I suppose someone could write up an intro paragraph and then link the various media floating around as an anniversary index. It's impact is important but it's felt so distantly through so many other threads, it real...

Re: Can anyone please help my article on the fall of C/FO?

Thanks for posting this - it was really cool to see something like this relayed on Reddit and the comment thread. Also, thanks to /r/hobbydrama, I have another way to waste precious time :lol:

Re: Macross II, Macross Plus, Macross 7, Macross Frontier, & Macross Delta to get released in America!

Such a wild time to see this much Macross becoming widely available - it's almost like the early 2000s when the original TV series was released by AnimEigo then re-released by ADV. Of this bunch, I am most excited by Macross 7, mostly for the nature that it seemed to be that one Macross property tha...

I like the translation of the art style to the modern look and the color palette of the show. Definitely gonna try to check this out.

Re: The old-school anime DVD/BD news thread.

Considering I've had a 'to-watch' pile of stuff going back to the tape days, I try not to let the OOP discs get me down. I think though the only discs I've seen any issues with in my collection were some of my Kimagure Orange Road DVDs that I got when those went out of print back in like 2006/7/8 an...

Re: NEED HELP WITH 90s ANIME TEES

Yeah, I've seen a few folks hunting for vintage T-shirts. I have only been contacted by people who see that I am selling stuff, not like just asking for the shirt off my back, in a photo. But then again, I may not have many photos of me in anime t-shirts. Usually the answer is that those shirts are ...
