Re: Dragon Ball Creator Akira Toriyama Dies at 68

He did wonders in helping anime spread across the world, with not only Dragon Ball, but also his character design work in the video game industry.

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: 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: 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.
