Re: Denver Anime International (C/FO - Denver)?

At one point Frazier had a really in-depth story about her experience as a fan-turned-pro, but it looks like it's been scrubbed from the 'net. Or maybe I'm just searching for the wrong domains on archive.org. Fascinating story that that touched a bit on the early days of the DAC, though I can unders...

Re: Fansub tape labels?

There was also a brief interlude between VHS and digisubs, that of the Hong Kong DVDs, specifically with the rise of Ebay. Some had fantastic subtitles, and some bordered on complete incoherence, but it was still a way to get titles never released here, then or now. I've always wanted a bit more in...

If you're ever looking for a blog that specializes in old otaku nonsense to publish it on, let me know! *cough* ;)

Re: Anime and the MovieCD format

Oh that's possible!! I'll have to keep my eye out for ads in my old Animericas next time I'm flipping through em & see if that's what it was lol. Software Sculptors, the company that released the BGC screensaver, also released some CPM/US Manga Corps titles on CD as Quicktime-compatible videos. Not...

The file is dated July of 1992, but there's no context behind it -- 1992 would have been the tail end of Animag, right before staff started moving on to work on the new Animerica. Anime Expo '92 was held in July. G...
