Re: Alita Movie

Among people I follow I've seen a ton of good feedback so I'm convinced it's worth checking out. I used to be huge into the manga until Last Order went full blown tournament arc. I don't know yet if I'll see it during the theatrical run or if I'll wait for it to come out later. I was leaning towards...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel release..

One girl in particular said it looked great and wanted to see it.... ... until the clip ended and the name of the movie was revealed. At that point she just sat back and said 'oh, never mind'. I'm kinda confused as to why the name would be that big of a turn off that she changed her mind. It's no "...

Re: An index of prominent figures in the early anime fandom?

Wow that sounds like a very interesting read regarding JSF. I'd also understand if she later felt it was too personal a story that she'd rather not publicize.

Re: What are you Watching?

Started watching the new Dororo adaptation. I like what I've seen so far; it gives a fresh coat of modern paint to bring the older aesthetic to be more in line with modern sensibilities. That being said, the story of the original work is not too unlike what you could find in modern Shonen Jump fight...

Japan Travel Suggestions?

Hi folks, With very high likelihood I will be visiting Japan late March to early April. The last time I was there was in 2015 for my third summer in a row before realizing I didn't actually want to live and work in Japan. Also unfortunately as a consequence, I didn't go out of my way to make use of ...

Re: Mechademia

I'd always meant to go check it out but it totally slipped from my mind in favor of focusing on school stuff. I guess I have the time now that I'm not in school anymore but I've been more curious about finding an equivalent Japanese academic journal covering the same material. Haven't found one yet ...

Music into Another World ~ Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honnêamise ~

https://karageko.com/2018/12/16/music-into-another-world-royal-space-force-the-wings-of-honneamise/ This is a translation of an accessible, analytic take on the music of Royal Space Force and its effect on the movie. Frankly, I was pretty sure that I'd probably never put up anything about Royal Spac...

Re: 1978 - anime's greatest year?

Thanks for this Dave. I furiously typed notes down on my phone at the panel but this is a lot better than me trying to piece together my incomprehensible gibberish.

Re: Fred Patten RIP

Today I have learned that Dave's not the only candy cartoon promoter in the anime wild west. http://cartoonresearch.com/index.php/anime-fandom-in-north-america/ Candy Candy. We didn’t watch only the boys’ adventure anime. We at least sampled the girls’ anime. Actually, I was the big rooter for Candy...

Re: I forgot about the Urusei Yatsura movies...

There's not really that much storyline to be affected in the UY TV series. If you really want to play it safe, just look at the original date of release and don't watch anything that came out after whatever TV series episode you're on (this is what I did). I can't recall anything that would have sig...
