Re: Hopping in. Train me, Sensei!

Welcome! I know how you feel. It would probably be a good idea to let us know what anime you're fond of already as otherwise people will probably default to their favorites. Taking a hint from your avatar, you could check out Kingyo Chuuiho! . It's pretty much the same team who did Sailor Moon. You ...

Circles today?

There was a time a few years ago when I was regularly visiting weekly meetings set up by an anime circle part of a national manga/anime association where I live. As I've mentioned before I was thinking of picking this habit up again and now I have. They show anime in one of the rooms and it's a mix ...

Re: Kimagure Orange Road Kickstarter

Is this illness they are talking about the same one he has suffered from for most of his life? I guess his previous tough period that rendered him inactive for years indicates that he may get better this time around as well, although it may take a very long time. I hope he does in any case. Regretta...

Hi and welcome! Thanks for sharing the cels, the Iczer cel is particularly neat :)
Thanks! I'm quite happy with it myself. I'd like to frame both of them, but doing so in a way suitable for cels is just too expensive.

Re: [Some Verbose way of saying "I'm also a young fan"]

I've encountered people who like one specific older anime/manga/creator as well, but they are mostly clueless in general. But actually the anime circle was part of not too long ago was very varied in their screenings. Always a mix of new and old, sometimes back to the 60s. My impression of Japanese ...

Re: [Some Verbose way of saying "I'm also a young fan"]

Hi! It seems like the veterans will soon be in the minority! Much like you I first thought of joining several years ago, but as you say the rules were different and stopped me as well. I suppose long time fans still are in touch with people from back in the days, while the younger ones like us have ...

Re: Hi There

Hi! I joined recently, but I'll welcome you anyway. As for the social aspect, I was going to an anime circle in a basement once a week for a while, not too long ago. They use a projector to show anime and they've been doing it since the early 90s. I hope I can renew this habit soon. Maybe there is s...

Re: NEW Gunsmith Cats anime short to premiere at ACEN 2018

I think these newer takes on older classics tend to be quite disappointing. Though Sonoda has retained his personal style more than most artists, so I'm still curious.
