Re: You convention story?

Hardly a "classic anime fandom" story but one of my favorite stories I like to tell - While I was in university, while at Anime Weekend Atlanta, one of my university friends always like to throw a room party at the con. Decent drink options, lots of folks gettin' chatty and having a good t...

Re: The CompuServe Anime and Manga Forum

I can only imagine what my partner would do to me if I racked up a thousand dollar phone bill :lol: I see that the the forum described itself as a place to have more detailed conversations about anime and manga, less flame wars, etc. How successful would you say the forum was in that mission? Do you...

Re: The CompuServe Anime and Manga Forum

It was more of a contractor, not an employee. I had a contract that said I would manage the forums. Oh, interesting! I imagine though that doing that sort of work, you were a bit closer to how everything operated than, say, someone who just spun a fanpage up on some webhost or Facebook. It came wit...

Re: The CompuServe Anime and Manga Forum

Very cool to read all of this - I was never a CompuServe subscriber. I remember my dad subscribing to AOL in the 90s after being on GEnie for a long while but I never did anything on GEnie but I remember the anime presence on AOL. George - by the sound of it, were you an employee of CompuServe while...

Re: What are you Watching?

With Dirty Pair on Crunchyroll, I figure now is the time to give it another go. (^_^) First episode is definitely -gressive anime, but it's hard to figure if it is pro-, re-, or just a-. I really liked their transformation sequence, where they just throw off their clothes dramatically (having seen ...

Re: The Anime Nostalgia Podcast & Blog

Loved the episode back a couple months ago with PinkAppleJam! I've got a queue of episodes pretty deep I need to try to get through but I'm loving every episode I get to listen to.

Re: Fred Ladd Passes at 94

I don't know about that - I don't know a whole lot about Japanese television of the 1960s in general, so I don't know how prevalent the concept of opening or closing themes were, say, compared to US television which was using them in the 50s. I also don't know which anime, in 1963, '64, or even int...
