Re: Kyoto Animation studio fire

Odd that they charged me tax on a donation. I guess their software isn't capable of knowing that there should be no tax charged on this item. Not that it makes much of a difference but I guess someone should let them know...

Re: Interviews with animators or artists

Wish we could get the 5 part NHK History of SF Manga c. 1982 hosted by Leiji Matsumoto fansubbed. Lots of interesting guests like Tezuka, Takao Saito, Ishinomori, etc. I have not seen that one one Youtube or anywhere else. Probably another one off that NHK promptly destroyed the original footage of...

Re: Interviews with animators or artists

I've actually got some televised recordings of Anno and Ohata on the SciFi channel in the 90's that they did interviews with/overdubbed their voices to english, and I got that Tim Eldred Yamato documentary and one other that you might be interested in. If you want it PM me and I can put them on a g...

Re: Interviews with animators or artists

If you want to see some great interviews with manga artists, the NHK series "Manben" is where it's at: Naoki Urasawa interviews a whole bunch of currently working manga-ka, including veterans like Takao Saito, Junji Ito, Ryoichi Ikegami, Moto Hagio, Kazuhiro Fujita, and younger artists as well. The...

Interviews with animators or artists

Of late, I've been trying to archive as many of the old interview shows as possible. I don't know if this is considered lost footage or else just misplaced. Now with the death of Monkey Punch, I have to look closer at several airings of his movies or specials for any interviews that might have been ...

Re: The Anime Nostalgia Podcast & Blog

She is 53, so she *might* have known about anime when the fandom started up in the late 1980s. You should write to her and ask. As far as other Magical Girls series, Little Witch Sally predates SM by a long shot. That show was also available in Canada in the late 1970s/early 1980s as Mini Fee. And ...

Re: The Anime Nostalgia Podcast & Blog

Yes, I did get into OMG back in the days of DH's original release. They didn't skip the first chapter--they released the first few chapters that showed Belldandy showing up & Keiichi moving out. THEN they skipped straight to Urd showing up. The reasons for that being that 1. many fans were already ...

Re: How did you discover anime?

Flipping through the French Channels in Canada to find Albator on one of them. Then asking Maggie Thompson about these neat cartoons and getting in touch with the C/FO through her. That would be about 1979. Things really took off after getting my contact in Japan through an ad he had placed in The V...

Re: pages from C/FO Magazine V2 #3

This brings back lots of memories. Wonder what happened to Craig? I caught up with him some years back when he moved back to Canada from Scotland as I recall, then promptly lost track of him again. I have lots of old C/FO stuff in a box which I labeled "History of Anime Fandom". Still have lots of o...

Too bad that one was never subbed in Hawaii. It would have been great to see.
