Re: The Anime Nostalgia Podcast & Blog

Wow- Congratulations! I read over the post and you did a nice job of introducing the appeal of Maison Ikkoku to a younger audience. It's always quite something to be a fan for so long, and then be hired by the company to do something related to it.

Re: The old-school anime DVD/BD news thread.

Ahh, Black Heaven. That was one of the first anime shows I actually watched, so I'll also be interested to pick that BD up.

Re: A-Kon 1997 report

Trekkies practically invented fandom as we know it today. Fanzines, fanfiction, large-scale science fiction conventions, etc. were all spearheaded by them. In the Next Generation era, they were also very prominent on BBSes, Usenet and the like. I'm sure Dave can go into more detail, but Star Trek is...

Re: What ettiquette was there in the days of Usenet?

Disclaimer: My era of anime fandom is from geocities/angelfire/*insert other web host here* sites, so I never went on Usenet back in the day. However, I still think I can give some insight on how it was, until someone a tad older than me posts here and gives their two cents. My impression is that wh...

Re: How have the drawings changed over the years?

The most apparent difference is anime is no longer made with hand-painted animation cels - Although, I believe modern model sheets and initial frames are still drawn traditionally on paper, the coloring process is all digital. Lighting effects can also be added digitally now. But as far as style is ...

Re: Yahoo groups going bye bye

Thanks for the update. While not entirely unexpected, it is a shame another service is closing its doors and removing years worth of data. Google Groups seems like a decent alternative (as mentioned earlier; it sprung off of Usenet archives after all) but the amount of spambot messages in some group...
