Re: Netflix Live-action Cowboy Bebop opening dropped

This is kind of a necro-bump, but I've been watching the first few episodes, and I think they are quite well done.

It keeps the right tone, and I think the change to live action is a positive one.

What do others think?

Re: Sexism in early anime fandom

For what it is worth, I never saw any of that. Not in conventions. Not in the Comic and Animation Forum when I was a SysOp on CI$. Nowhere. In fact, there was a great deal of respect. The late Kim Yale (John Ostrander of Grimjack fame's gf) was the narrator of Vampire Hunter D. I'd bought the origin...

Re: Macross Conversion DYRL maybe

No problem! If I was a NES system owner (my son is) I'd probably jump on it.

But I'm not. I'm into the bigger games (the original Asteroids, Tempest, Asteroids Deluxe, Stargate, Robotron, Xenon Pinball and an old Chicago Coin Super Score.

Re: Macross Conversion DYRL maybe

I was wrong - it would be for a standard (beige box with the flip up front door) NES, not a 64.

Converted a few Macross Famicom carts to NES

I don't know what FAMICOM is but I know what NES is. This would convert for the Nintendo 64 system I believe.

I saw this on an arcade forum I'm a member on - if someone wants it, contact the guy.

Re: When did Pocky become associated with anime fans?

Got me! I watched Gunbuster a bunch of times - damn near wore out the VHS tape. The first two episodes went a bit slow as they built up the plot, but then it got more engaging. You gave me a reason to go look. I'll have to figure out what Pocky looks like unwrapped, but I'm sure Google will provide ...

Re: The CompuServe Anime and Manga Forum

One more thing: CI$ wanted to change SIGs (Special Interest Groups) to Forums. Thus, they wanted to change the System Operator or SysOp handle to Forum Adminstrator. That just rolls off the tongue, right? So we responded "ForAd?" They dropped that one for the most part. I did visit CI$ hea...

Re: When did Pocky become associated with anime fans?

I hit a lot of conventions between 85 and 90. Never saw Pocky there - at least as a far as I recall. I did see a lot of dedicated fans there, sometimes translating (when subtitled products weren't available), sometimes conversing. It was all a great deal of fun. I got to to a panel session with Tore...

Re: The CompuServe Anime and Manga Forum

Think about it. Pre-broadband.

How would your wife react seeing the phone bill going from $50 to $1100?

I know how mine reacted. It wasn't pleasant.
