VHS trading and fansubs in the modern era: Anime Herald

Anime Herald looks at the history of VHS fansubs in North America, and how the scene survives and thrives in the modern era! If you were ever wondering where that fansub of the Macross movie you watched at the anime club meeting in the back of the comic book store in 1986 came from, wonder no more. ...

Re: RIP AWO In Memoriam project

I did record a segment about Derek Wakefield - it turned out to be a bit longer than seven minutes, so maybe my estimation of 2-3 min was a little on the short side. Anyway, I sent it in to AWO and I encourage anyone who has someone they'd like to remember to do the same!

Re: So... that was Attack on Titan...

I recall hearing those murmurs about the right wing propaganda a while back, it really freaked me and actually caused me to step back from watching for a bit...but I guess with the way things unfolded in the story I could see how people would conclude that but... There was so much more going on. In...

RIP AWO In Memoriam project

If you listened to the latest Anime World Order (https://www.awopodcast.com) podcast, you might have noticed Daryl mention a thing that Walter Amos and myself started talking about on NYE, the idea of doing an "In Memoriam" segment of the show in which anime fans who are no longer with us ...

Re: ANN article on Classic Shoujo I'd love to see get licensed

Thanks for the Honey Honey shout-out, it would be great to see that get some kind of a release. I think the big challenge is convincing anyone in charge that it's worth even the pittance it would cost to license the show, but hope spring eternal.

NYE 2023 Anime Hell Streaming Show

I'm doing another end-of-year 3-hour New Years Eve Anime Hell streaming show this Dec. 31! The show starts at 10pm ET, so there's plenty of time to have dinner somewhere and ditch whatever party you grudgingly committed yourself to in favor of shorts, funny commercials, weird clips, fan-made films, ...

Let's Anime: Leiji Matsumoto

I put together my notes on the various memorial panels I ran this year at Anime North and AWA alongside the thoughts I'd assembled for the Anime Nostalgia podcast and the Mangaverse fanzine, and it's the latest Let's Anime, all about the life and career of Leiji Matsumoto and its impact on me and pe...
