Re: Manga on Jeopardy!

I had my wife (who was in anime back in the day as well) and daughter (who is oddly not into anime at all :~( ) do these. My daughter got 2/5 (Sailor Moon and Astro Boy) and my wife got 3/4 (She also got Speed Racer. She recognized Attack on Titan after mentioning it, and had heard of Lone Wolf and ...

Re: Did Battle of the Planets fan clubs have any lasting influence on the anime club scene?

Huh. Thank you for reminding me of Patricia Munson-Siter, hers is a name I had not thought of for a while. I liked the books that she made back in the day to help people understand certain series, and I think that I have some of her art work in storage.

Re: Trailer up for IG's LOTGH

To repeat... yes, it looks like the same but... I have no problem with more. I have gotten the translated novels as available, I still have copies of the subs from when they were available, I still have the Taiwan dvd's... a few cells.. Yeah, I will see this as soon as I can as well. Now, if only I ...

Re: Anyone here read American or European comics?

I saw Valerian and liked it all right. I don't think it was anything special, but it hit the notes for me as a popcorn movie. If you have an amazon account, get the e-book for the first Valerian compilation. Valerian Volume 1: City of Shifting Waters, is still available for $0.00. It can't hurt to ...

Re: Mushi Pro Best Series Let's Anime

thanks for the compliments! I think a compilation tape of stuff from the past 20 years would look like "moe blob, bad remake, moe blob, moe blob, moe blob, FLOWERS OF EVIL, moe blob, bad remake, moe blob, CRAZY TRIGGER STUFF, moe blob, etc" There are interesting things being done but they are surro...

Re: New Daicon III & IV LD Rip

Since this was something I knew about before I cared about old anime, I assumed that most anime fans at school were aware of the Daicon III & IV openings but it didn't take me long to find out that I was sorely mistaken. Ah yes.. I also suffer from the problem in that I presume that if -I- know som...

Re: Anyone here read American or European comics?

So, the Valerian movie didn't do so well (I enjoyed it all the same... even if they ramped up sexual tension and cut the ages of the main characters in half ..or a third). Still, hearing about the movie lead me to pick up 3 of the translations of the French comics from the 1970s... so I am grateful ...

Re: What are you Playing?

Japanese related : Final Fantasy Record Keeper and Final Fantasy Brave Exvius on android..
Non-Japanese related : No Man Sky on PS4.

I am thinking that as an adult I no longer have the time to invest in more than one game at a time ^_^;;
Ah well

Re: Ghibli Fest

So, I went to a (somewhat) local Ghiblifest with my daughter for Laputa. She quite enjoyed it =) =) They also had a number of shorts ahead of it.. which I would share more about but technical difficulties lead to there being no sound. I was the second and third person to report it, so I only saw one...

Re: Younger fan with theoretical 80s nostalgia

Hm. I miss conventions.. or at least being able to go to them. Actually... hm. Much as I do enjoy wandering the dealer room, I like having people that I can talk to about all these things *gestures around*. Then again, I have been to all of one convention in the last ten years, it has been a decade ...
