Re: Omega Zone 23 Pitch Document

Another informative gem on ARTMIC titles! I appreciate the downloadable files for Omega City and Gall Force. Maybe if Sonoda takes audience questions at ACEN next year I can ask him about star front.

FS: Last Laserdiscs w/Autographs

Not wanting to commit any shelf space to the grand old format, I'm offering for sale these last discs in my collection: UTENA Vol.1 (KILA-341) The start of the 1997 TV show with interior booklet autographed by Ikuhara and Saito. I believe the signatures were from Animazement 2000. I discarded the di...

Re: Anyone here sort of give up on newer anime?

The background artists, storyboarders, young workers on that old stuff who are now the leaders of the anime industry. Let new fans know about the artistic childhood of their favorite artists. Another way is to follow the family tree. Look for interviews with directors; which directors working today...

Re: Anime shirts

My modest shirt collection is a mix of con shirts and production shirts dating back to the mid-90's. For a time, ACEN did a great job of putting GoH art on their shirts. I wore the '98 Sonoda tee this year which got a few old-timer salutes. My favorite con shirt though is from AX96; that one has col...

Re: What are you Watching?

Persona 4 [2011] & Persona 4 Golden [2014] (I finished both. I had set my expectations very low because video game anime adaptations have a very poor track record, and it was fine given that. The only reason to watch this is if you played the games and wanted to see the characters go through the sa...

Re: What are you Watching?

A family member wanted to watch an old VHSC tape the other day so I plugged in my JVC deck for the first time in about 12 years. Fortunately, I have saved a tube tv with S-video input and a couple master tapes from my college club days. So, I sat through them again to check for degrading... #1) DAIC...

Re: The format which anime was brought from Japan to America

Our college club was official, and the bi-monthly meetings in a Math/Sci lecture hall were approved. Club membership did cost money, which supported the production of a subbed tape library and event advertising. Our use of lab computers to host the "Venice" archive was likely unsanctioned. Bear in m...
