Re: Which came out in the US first, Animeigo's MADOX-01 or US Renditions' Gunbuster?

I'm seeing a few other rec.arts.anime posts that copy-paste US Renditions/Books Nippan press releases advertising a release date of Jan. 1 1990 for both Gunbuster and Dangaio.

Re: Which came out in the US first, Animeigo's MADOX-01 or US Renditions' Gunbuster?

I'd like to see more Gunbuster promo - a trade advertisement would be nice, for one thing - but at this point, if that Animag article is correct then Gunbuster was released before MADOX-01 and I will have to adjust years of incorrect thinking. the earliest I can see anyone discussing the Gunbuster t...

Re: Which came out in the US first, Animeigo's MADOX-01 or US Renditions' Gunbuster?

that's exactly the ad I was thinking about, but as it happens, the ad we ran in "Oxygen Destroyer" was for their Riding Bean release. The memory DOES cheat! I did, however, find the Summer 1990 issue of "Animation Velocity" which continued the letter-writing feud between Randall ...

Re: RIP Kevin Lillard

That guy was a constant presence at anime cons - if I didn't see him there I knew SOMETHING was wrong. It wasn't until the mid 2000s that the sheer volume of anime conventions meant that he was constantly having to pick one over another - and they were too far apart for him to hit three in a weekend...
