Re: The Show Off Your Figures/Models Stuff Thread

It's definitely legit -- the packaging is too nice and Mandarake doesn't sell bootlegs. A few more kits show up if you google the company's name written out in katakana (エクシング), but a lack of online evidence and no official website doesn't mean it's suspect, it just means it's old. Lots of old kit m...

Re: Gainax's English language newsletter GPress USA at Let's Anime

I have to wonder though, how much of this in history has been lost to time? GenePro USA gets a (seemingly) passing mention from people who were there (Lea Hernandez-Seidman, for example) and there isn't a concerted group of "GAINAX fans" that are archiving and presenting this information. The zimme...

Re: Japan Travel Suggestions?

Just got back from a trip and honestly, aside from what I picked up at Wonderfest, I didn't find a ton that really interested me. Older stuff is (unsurprisingly) getting harder to find. Surugaya just opened a massive 8-story building in Akiba, so that and the Mandarake there make it a worthwhile vis...

Is there no other document out there that talks about Omega Zone?
The two big sources I know are the ARTMIC Design Works book and B-Club's Megazone 23 special.

Re: Unreleased anime of the past

I don't think Pony Metal U-Gaim was ever actually intended to be an anime series, that promotional video was produced as marketing for an MSX2 game developed by ASCII and the video itself was later sold via General Products. Prior to both the video and the game, U-Gaim was just a doujin series. I've...

Omega Zone 23 Pitch Document

I kind of fell off from updating the forum when I published something new on Zimmerit.moe, but I figured this would be worth sharing! I recently won a copy of the original pitch document for a never-produced TV show called Omega Zone 23. If that sounds a little familiar, it's because over a couple o...

Re: Fred Patten RIP

Luckily he was able to recover somewhat and continue writing and attending events - I saw him again briefly at Anime Los Angeles, in the crowd of a panel I did about anime fandom. I made darn sure to let the crowd know that right there in the wheelchair was the guy that more or less started it all....
