Re: pages from C/FO Magazine V2 #3

. Still have lots of old fanzines like Marg Baskin's Anime House Productions Anime Janai. You can get some of those in digital form now I think. I purchased a bunch of those back in the day - if you can direct me to them I would greatly appreciate it (quick google search just leads to lots of Gunda...

Alita: Battle Angel release..

(I know, I know, it's Gunnm, and her name is Gally..anyway) I seem to keep getting articles popping up on how it is doomed to failure, that it will never get to $25 million, etcetera. I am actually impressed by how many articles are saying how badly it will do when it comes out next week. On the oth...

Re: Lensmen Licensing Issues (according to TSHS)

Thank you - that adds details into the story that I had not been familiar with. Two anecdotes that I would add would be that Japan has had an appreciation for other works (such as the Skylark of Space series). I read somewhere that one cosplay had a person in a nondescript pilot uniform, but as they...

Re: pages from C/FO Magazine V2 #3

So, VHS scarcity was not an important matter, right, but how to hook up with the right person who had a show you wanted? And how bad was the tape-exchanging culture hurt after anime titles started showing up at Blockbuster or Suncoast? (Also, do you remember approximately when did these stores star...

Light Novels

I thought that I would mention that I spent some time over the last few weeks to read volumes #1-7 of 'How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom' by Dojyomaru. It takes the idea of a person from our 'real' world being sent to a fantasy world to help save it, but deviates almost immediately. Instead of ...

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

\ Such a big change from the bad old days when 2 episodes of Ranma was $30 on VHS (Sub, dub was $25), or a Bubblegum Crisis LD was $50 or more. When you had to venture out to find legal anime in places like Suncoast, and the pickings were slim. \ Heh, I remember doing 'dollar per minute' calculatio...

Re: How did you discover anime?

While this doesn't answer the question, I am reminded of an anecdote that I would like to share. At the time (mid 80s), my parents said that we had no need for a CD player because we had no CDs, and we had no reason to get CDs as we didn't have a player. Nice little circular reasoning there. What I ...
