Re: Ace Man?

looks to me like the interviewer wasn't familiar with 8-Man, and misheard the name of the show when Fred mentioned it.

this is a subscription form to Let's Anime that mentions "Animenominous," so it shows that we were aware of the magazine at the time.

Re: Anime Hell 80s Night II: The Return

You fellow old school fans might be interested in how well this particular Anime Hell went; it came close to re-creating that 1980s anime club environment, but with better sound and a bigger TV, and much better copies of Iczer One. About 30 people showed up, we had soda and beer available. It was ho...

Anime Hell 80s Night II: The Return

I'm back on my nonsense screening some old-school stuff at Eyesore next Saturday night, so if you're in the area come on down and get sweaty with us! I'm told the screening room at Eyesore has AC now but I haven't seen it in action yet, and I will have a cooler full of Freezies to keep everyone cool...

Re: An index of prominent figures in the early anime fandom?

As far as JAC...

Re: The Anime Nostalgia Podcast & Blog

Bewitched? You mean the American sitcom series? That sounds cool! I don't know that they showed American sitcom in Japan far back as then - Weren't Japanese banned from going abroad until the 1960s? Also, usamimi, I have just finished episode 61 of your podcast. It is for these little funny nuggets...

Re: An essay of sorts about the role of anime in my life
