Re: Zac Bertschy is dead

This damned pandemic is really testing people. While I hope that Zac's death isn't connected to COVID-19, it is still a blow in these hard times.

Re: A-Kon 1997 report

I don't live in America, so please forgive my ignorant, but is it weird that Star Trek codified the fandom? I would have thought that comic book fans would be the first to do so. I mean, superhero comic books were the first of the recently-created mediums to do multimedia (Superman radio shows from ...

Re: A-Kon 1997 report

Reading this report makes me want to ask: How big and active were the Trekkies before the 2000s? You makes it sounds like Star Trek is somekind of common language of nerds.

Your memories of anime theatrical release?

When was the first time you came to a theater to watch an anime movie? Do you remember how big the audience was, and what was their reaction? Do you have any pet peeves about the way anime was shown in theaters at the time?

Thankfully, I was finally able to download the episode from Apple Podcast. And thanks about reminding me of GTO. It and YuYu Hakusho are two 90s I al...

Re: The Anime Nostalgia Podcast & Blog

Before I forget, I want to mention that Sega in the mid-2000 entered a tough spot, too. It took years after the Dreamcast's cancellation for them to find back their pace, which embodied in the disaster that was Sonic 06. So Sakura Taisen got the short end was something understandable.

New episode went up Friday! Sakura Wars chat with Samantha! http://animenostalgia.blogspot.com/2020/03/the-anime-nostalgia-podcast-ep-85.html Also, before I forget, the idea of romance and pairing characters in a turn-based strategic video game actually originated from the 4th title of Fire Emblem,...

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

Though not exactly a figure for my list, does anyone here know anything about Mr. Robert Barron, who was a voice actor in Robotech and worked on the English dub of Macross? He started as Abraham Lincoln in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.

I really like Sakura back when 5 came out on the PS2, though I will admit that its characters were kind of the weakest in the franchise....
