Re: Chasing after the long-lost American Sailor Moon

In my local market (San Francisco Bay Area), the dubbed Sailor Moon was shown from 2:30-3pm M-F. Most elementary school children did not get out of school until 3pm.

Re: Nothing of Consequence

So for every time you think this Luna Art's collection is better and far more superior than yours, just think to yourself that at least yours is LIGHT YEARS better than mine! :lol: I enjoy looking at other people's collections, but that's more in general because I like to see what people own and ho...

Re: New Discotek announcements: Area 88! Kimagure Orange Road! AND MORE!!

^ Yeah, I mean, between this and finally getting my KOR manga rewards through the DMP Kickstarter ...eventually...I don't know if I can contain my excitement.

All I need now is an update on Matsumoto's health and I'd be pretty thrilled with things on this end.

Re: Nothing of Consequence

No one on here is any bigger a fan, than you. I hate the concept of the biggest fan. These are the idiots at conventions that will tell you that they're the #1 fan of a series because they've seen the series x amount of times, can recite the main character's lines by heart, have spent $$ on merchan...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel delayed to Dec '18

Saw the trailer during the Mission Impossible movie and I wonder if James Cameron will even be able to find the bar this time (South Park reference). Seriously. Looked stupid. Why is Alita the only one with the weird eyes? If we're going for that whole anime feel, every humanoid character in the fil...

Re: Chasing after the long-lost American Sailor Moon

1. Was the animation of that 1995 Anime Expo video average or bad compared to American cartoon shows of the time? Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers first broadcasted in 1989 and it was gorgeous, but as far as 1996 you had something as bad as Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm. Several years ago, some...

Re: When did Yaoi rise in popularity?

For the US, I would say it occurred once Viz opened up their yaoi branch, SuBLime. Prior to that, the bulk of the yaoi manga in the US was released by DMP. DMP has notoriously small print runs, which means that a lot of their titles are too pricey for many to own once DMP runs out of stock. Viz also...

Re: Convention Appearances 2018

If ACEN needed more sponsorship this year to bring in a classic guest line, I'd rather deal with any resulting complications than have no guests worth seeing. Depends on how tightly controlled that guest is. I was amused that people thought that the guests that Viz brought to ACEN would actually dr...

Re: Convention Appearances 2018

Namely that, I think anime conventions have largely retained their "fan" origins and, more importantly, atmosphere. Sure, you have behemoths like Otakon having an east coat and a Vegas iteration.. You've never been to Otakon Vegas, have you? As far as conventions go, it was a joke. I went there the...

Re: Convention Appearances 2018

This was a filthy casual convention for my friends and I this year. A couple of us had met Nagahama several times and had gotten sketches from him, so there was no drive to line up for him again. We concentrated more on the Anime Supporter's Group. We managed to get some nice stuff from Kariya thoug...
