Re: Animezanai

Maybe this should go in the "Where's the meeting this week?" thread, but it's also interesting that the club was headquartered in Santa Ana, but the meetings were at the La Habra Public Library -- Santa Ana had a library, maybe they were kicked out? :D Or it had no space? Or was it a case ...

Re: Animezanai

The anime selection is intriguing too. The list adds to my suspicion that "What's Michael?" seems to have been semi-popular among anime fans in the Old School era (it was also available through Anime Sacramento around the same time, and the manga was for sale at Nikaku Animart), but you wo...

Re: Animezanai

Not sure if it's the same Brian Henderson who was involved with Animezanai, but an anime-fan Brian Henderson left a couple comments on a story about Carl Macek's death: Yeah, I remember hanging out with Carl back in his comic days, he had a TV and VCR up by the register and a bunch of us would go in...

Animezanai

An anime club run by Brian Henderson out of Santa Ana, CA. The main reason I figured it deserved its own thread is that a 1989 club video room schedule was preserved by the folks over at the ConFurence Archive (https://confurence.com/about/), a site mostly devoted to early furry fandom but that has ...

The BIX Animation Conference

I don't know much about BIX, apparently it was an online service created by BYTE magazine, and it had an anime section. One of the old moderators, Harry McCracken, had the foresight to preserve a copy in his personal files: https://harrymccracken.com/blog/the-bix-animation-conference-archive/ :) I t...

Re: Let's Anime looks at the anime movies of 1981

That's a striking image of Gliko the Chipmunk. I'm used to the trope of the anime character with the small woodland creature sidekick, but had never stopped to wonder about the origin. I suppose if the animators had grown up watching woodland creature action-adventure anime, they'd want to sneak it ...

Re: Cassette Girl

I don't suppose there's any chance this ever got an overseas release? The internet says that the whole Japan Animator Expo (other than a few with rights issues) got a release in Japan as part of a Dragon Dentist special edition, but no English subtitles on that one. (I'd check the original website, ...

Re: Anime soundtracks that were never released to CD?

Of course, the minute I post about it, I find it -- CPC8-3017 in 1999. :lol: Still maybe an interesting topic, though.

Anime soundtracks that were never released to CD?

...not that there's anything wrong with vinyl or cassettes, of course. :D While looking around to see if I could find the Dagger of Kamui OST on CD, I was surprised to find it never seemed to make the jump.

Are there any other anime soundtracks that you were surprised to find never made it to CD?
