Re: Thunderbirds 2086

I can't speak for UK television, but the 1983- 1984 US television schedule featured several toy-specific shows like GI Joe, Transformers, He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe, Go Bots, My Little Pony, Rainbow Brite, and Voltron. M.A.S.K. started in 1985. With so much shows at the same type, it go...

Re: Interviews with animators or artists

Apologize for my ignorance, but can anyone here explain to me why did NHK destroy their own footages? I have been a NHK World audience for a long time, and one complain people always have is that they never releases their series on DVD. But destroy their footages? Anyway, here is a short documentary...

Re: Thunderbirds 2086

finally finished a Let's Anime about Thunderbirds 2086! You know, Thunderbirds 2086, the Japanese animation that was based on the 60s Gerry Anderson Supermarionation adventure series, until it wasn't based on that show any more, and then it was again! Cheers! It is a great article! Although I have ...

Re: The Anime Nostalgia Podcast & Blog

Great episode, Usamimi! AKIRA was one of my first Cyberpunk anime alongside Ghost in the Shell and Cyber City Oedo, and therefore it holds a special position to me! And since you talked about fan-made AKIRA materials, can I recommend Bartkira , which was essentially a frame-by-frame redrawn of Akira...

Re: Animanga Nuzu

I'm totally unfamiliar w/ this so had to look it up. Looks like maybe it was developed at Toyota? Yeah. It basically minimize the cost of inventory. I study finnance, not management or business planning, so I may be wrong about it but Just in time is a good idea. In America though, last I heard the...

Re: Animanga Nuzu

Japan does a lot of things well, but it really has no idea how to do anything cheaply (except parcel delivery and alcohol). I know that this is stepping away from the topic, but didn't Japan invented the whole "Just in time" concept (or a major chunk of scientific management" in general) to reduce ...

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

Anyone here know what happened to Robin Leyden after the period in this passage in Fred Patten's book. According to iMDB, Wendell Washer retired as an animator years ago but what about his fellow C/FO member Robin?

Ace Man?

According to this old interview of Fred Ladd, he worked on an anime called Ace Man. Did the interviewer mistake Gatchaman for Ace Man? Or was there an anime with that name?

Also, do anyone here have an idea on how can I access old magazines of Animation World Network?
