Re: What did old-school fans think about digital fansubs?

RIP Ryuichi Sakamoto

Famous composer Ryuichi Sakamoto has passed away at the age of 71. I'm at a loss. Honneamise is among the first anime movies I fell in love with, and Sakamoto's soundtracks was a big part of it. Now I'm left with a terrible feeling that more beloved artists of that generation are not long for this ...

Re: Let's Anime: Force Five

Very interesting article! But if I may add, you forget one more thing carrying the name "Force Five". It was originally a cancelled fighting game on the Atomiswave arcade board, but years after its cancellation, another company bought its assets, made some changes, and released the game un...

Re: The Anime Nostalgia Podcast & Blog

Speaking of Urusei Yatsura, is there anything from the original run that you haven't covered on the podcast? The movies and OVAs maybe?

Re: Prominance of Beta in Anime Tape Trading

Betamax is probably the rarest format for anime to me, even more than LaserDisc. And I've even seen anime on a reel-to-reel machine. It was an old episode of Speed Racer on 35mm film. I had no idea how the thing escaped a tv station.
