Re: New Book Idea - Thoughts and Suggestions Appreciated!

I'm sure, some time down the road from now, anime and manga fans of tomorrow would enjoy reading about what the times were like, of a fandom they're a part of, that's not perpetually everything late 80's and early Nineties, or as far back as the early 60's or 70's. New generations of fans are in the...

Re: How did Hentai made its way to America?

But you'd have to travel in a group of fans. One guy walking in asking, ey, can I see your old adult VHS tapes, doesn't make for quite the introduction, and al the more reason for the store owner to dial that nine...then a one...and if the creepola starts getting fidgety... :lol: Maybe it's because...

Re: How did Hentai made its way to America?

Yeah, while there's still some old-school shops like that around, it's nice to know there's alternatives out there (or even places that cleaned up their act a little!) Ironically, I remember the comic shop in Pike Place in WA still carrying a lot of vintage adult manga releases right up until I mov...

Re: How did Hentai made its way to America?

If I had to guess why there aren't so many volunteers for hentai preservation, it's because it has the same problems as preserving obscure laserdisc releases, only moreso; the animation is bad, the plot not even bad-funny, and you can't even easily claim historical significance because you have to ...

Re: How did Hentai made its way to America?

I know that back in the 1990s, you could hire porn on VHS from rental stores ("behind the curtains" and things like that, right?). But what about Hentai works? How did they made their way to America? I suppose that some early fans had already obtained some tapes or manga from their Japane...

That was a pretty neat anime music video. Nice touch at the end, too. It had me laughing a bit.

Re: Older fans – what is your take on anime and anime fandom today?

So as you can see Karma, the take on anime and anime fandoms today, from the side of us older fans, really isn't all that different a take than what you all, as a new generation of fans, is going through. There wasn't this, mythical, beyond the ether, cosmic look into the classic of anime and manga ...

Re: The past relationship between the anime and furry fandoms

The relationship between anime and furry has always been there from the very beginning, Fire. Anime and manga as a whole, have always been hand in hand with all sorts of genres, including furry. You really can't have one, without the other. I don't think furry has to rely on being associated with an...
