Re: Hello from the future!

Aye, welcome to the boards, Gaijinguy. I'd love to attend Comiket one of these days, and I'd be happy to check out your 'zines if I do.
BTW, I'm a fan of Robotech/Macross as well! :) I finally met Tony Oliver at a con about a month ago.

Re: HELLO~

Hi Eileen, welcome to the boards! That's an awesome collection. I also find press kits, mail orders and catalogs to be interesting, so you're in good company here.

Re: anime con room parties of the past

This was a particularly fun article! Despite being to many cons over the years, I've always checked out when it comes to the parties. The photos and scans here really add a lot of context for what they were like.

Re: Boston Japanimation Society newsletter uploads

These are a real treat, thanks for sharing! My favorite part of fanzines is the original art that they drew themselves, in this case, Frank Strom's.
The more uploaded on archive.org the merrier, I say.

Re: Hello everyone! VHS collector and ex-fansubber here

Welcome to the forums! Glad to have yet another member who realizes the importance of backing up such things. I appreciate you sharing your history, too. ...Ah, the days of hanging out in IRC channels. I kind of want to check out Aegisub now.

RIP Leiji Matsumoto

We lost an absolute legend in animation. Not just in Japanese animation, but worldwide - He passed away on the 13th, but it was only announced today.

Re: William Chow's vodcast series, History of Fan Anime in North America

Yup, always a pleasure to hear about scene-related things like this. Despite also being an anime "middle schooler", I'm quite interested in anime fanzines, newsletters, etc. (Both physical and online BBS) I just bought a couple issues of "From SIDE to SIDE" to add to my collection.

Thank you kindly! Hopefully, more eyes will be drawn to Jim's work. Several large online outlets like ANN and Kotaku are covering his story.
