Re: The Anime Nostalgia Podcast & Blog

(I'd also say Dave deserves one, except I would be surprised if he didn't already have one.)

Re: The Anime Nostalgia Podcast & Blog

I wish they (Hatsune Miku?) gave out honorary old-school-anime doctorates, because you deserve one -- 105 months of anime podcasting for anime-local fame is a very old-school attitude now, as modern social media is more like traditional broadcast media where it's all about metrics rather than being ...

C/FO Portland?

Run out of Portland, Oregon by Jo Amie, it looks like it became "Anime Connections" for a bit in the post-C/FO era... Anyone know anything about this chapter?

Re: When did Pocky become associated with anime fans?

A bit of Wayback Machine browsing was educational: "Where in the world can i find pocky ??" (...i hear you ask...) [/i] • Japan: - you certainly can't go past japan when it comes to this one. being the inventors and no doubt major consumers of the item, they have pretty much a stranglehold...

Apparently the translator Richard Kim picked up the nickname Pocky sometime in the 90s -- still uses the nickname for his Twitch streams: https://www.twitch.tv/originalpocky (^_^)

When did Pocky become associated with anime fans?

Maybe this is contemporary to me as an anime middle-schooler rather than an anime old-school question, but I appreciate the help of people who were maybe a bit more fandom-aware than me at the time. When the fun of anime fandom cooled enough for me to notice quirky details, I noticed that instead of...

Re: What are you Watching?

A few Dirty Pair side-eye moments, like Kei having a crush on a "younger man" at 19. Probably confirms me as elderly even if I'm not old-school, in that my first thought was, "How much younger could they be???" The episode with the cats and the wrestlers was epic, despite the kin...

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 a...

A good motivator to start old-school anime I've been putting off, seeing it in its natural environment. (^_^)

Re: William Chow's vodcast series, History of Fan Anime in North America

Still updating! A little more self-reflective rather than anime-reflective, I guess, but an episode about Anime Jyanai, his brick-and-mortar anime store back in the day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEZEj0Okj30
