Re: Oldschool OVAs You Wish Were Completed

Sonoda is too busy running his family candy shop of 400 years. Wow, I had go read up on that. I had no idea that's what he was doing these days! Crazy that a lifetime ago, the guy was basically defining the look of anime character designs for a whole generation. Now he's running an ancient candy sh...

I really need to c...

Re: Oldschool OVAs You Wish Were Completed

Well, there was a later Giant Robo TV series, wasn't there? I always thought the "preview" at the last episode of GR was more of a nod to its serial nature. Kinda like Star Wars starting at episode 4 originally--it was meant to evoke the feeling of old serials how you sort of jump in and out of a s...

Re: Oldschool OVAs You Wish Were Completed

So many... lets see, the first one I think of is Giant Robo.. since at one point that was going to be 'Chapter 6' of the series, with chapter 7 being 'the tower of babel'. Next one is a little bit outside our normal range, 'Trinity Blood' just because it is -so- unfinished. First, the author was sim...

Re: Tokyo Babylon gets a new anime adaptation!

If nothing else, this gives a reason to dig up the manga from whatever box I have it in and read it again..

Re: Anime on CD?

I also at one point had Nausicaa and Laputa on VCD, but it was also Chinese/Japanese/subtitled so... probably not legal?

Re: How did Hentai made its way to America?

I recall Cream Lemon tapes being circulated late eighties/early nineties. I even vaguely recall 'fan dubs' of that going around.

Re: How long can the craze for a merchandise-driven anime can last?

The Pokemon Trading Card game was hugely popular in the US. I don't think I've ever seen anything reach that level of popularity before or since. Cards were sold almost everywhere and for such a huge mark-up. I remember flipping through channels one day and seeing the cards being sold on the Home S...
