Re: The format which anime was brought from Japan to America

[ Thank you so much for that information. I am interested in the fact that your club used Laserdisc - wasn't it only a hit in Japan? Was it available widely, and was it expensive to other format at the time? [/quote] Actually, a number of clubs got laser disks as it was less expensive to get laser d...

Re: Rumiko Takahashi enters Eisner Hall of Fame!

Truly deserved recognition for her! Finally glad to see her able to add it to all of her other accolades! Indeed! I've met a staggering amount of artists over the years who always named her their very first inspiration. I hope that this opens the door for them considering more mangaka, and more wom...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel delayed to Dec '18

True... certain movies are getting clumped together. My personal thoughts on Solo is that the movie had not been fairly recent after Last Jedi, and while Avengers: Infinity Wars was still in theaters from a month previous, Deadpool 2 came out the week before, two weeks before Incredibles 2 and three...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel delayed to Dec '18

So I was reading up on this again, and noticed that they were adapting the first four tankobon to the movie so that they could get to Motorball. Any idea why they decided to try and compress volumes 1-4 into a single movie instead of just volume 1 or volume 1 and 2?

Re: Nothing of Consequence

It was a bit of melancholy I suppose. I tend to 'gatekeep' myself at times, feeling that I am not "good enough" to be a fan of something. Intrinsically nonsensical, I know. I dislike when people try to gatekeep, yet I gatekeep myself regularly. For a "not-quite anime" example, a dozen years or so ag...

Nothing of Consequence

Just felt like posting. I am in an odd mood. Was listening to 'Wounded Wings" from the Please Save My Earth sound track, now listening to Mayu's theme from the original Harlock show.

Anyone else in an odd mood?

Re: Convention Appearances 2018

And yet even reading these I miss going to conventions of any sort... I like the feeling of being with people that I can talk to and far too often I feel that I can't.

Re: Collecting anime film prints - Starzan!

You might as well ask whatever happened with Saban Entertainment dubbing 13 episodes of Dragon Quest as Dragon Warrior and then....doing nothing with it.
