Re: The lonely wail of unfinished models...

There are two facets of the model building hobby - those who complete models and those who buy models. Everyone in the second group tries to be a member of the first group but more often wind up with their own stashes of un-built or half-built models. I've got a corner of my attic carved out for my ...

Re: Crunchyroll to stop offering free option for newer anime

Following up on a two year old thread - yeah, I noticed not long after they initiated the change, it wasn't just new anime, it was a whole mess of their catalog because I lost access to most of my watchlist. And, since I don't want to pay for another service, I've just given up on CR for now.

Re: Dragon Ball Creator Akira Toriyama Dies at 68

This one hurt a bit. I think partially because of his age but also what Dragonball meant to me as a young anime fan. It wasn't my first anime, or even my first anime that I started deep-diving into or what got me into fansubs. But it was what I was watching that was a confluence of all of that: it w...

Re: Organizing Your Media And Merch

I've been slowly organizing shelves for my manga and books related to manga. I finally made several dedicated shelves to Leiji and Shirato Sanpei. I think I'll do Mizuki Shigeru and then Umezu Kazuo next because I have a wide variety of their stuff including reprints of their earliest published mat...

Re: RIP AWO In Memoriam project

I have thought about trying to do one about Jarod Nandin, whom I discussed on the forums here when he passed in 2021.

Re: anime con room parties of the past

All really good points, especially how room party culture really doesn't scale up as conventions scale up. The anime room party of 1998 was just that -it was for 1998, it was for a convention that was doing maybe 2000 attendees that all kind of knew each other, that was used to fansubbing its own sh...
