Re: The Anime Nostalgia Podcast & Blog

New episode went up Friday! Sakura Wars chat with Samantha! http://animenostalgia.blogspot.com/2020/03/the-anime-nostalgia-podcast-ep-85.html Also, before I forget, the idea of romance and pairing characters in a turn-based strategic video game actually originated from the 4th title of Fire Emblem,...

Re: An index of prominent figures in the early anime fandom?

Though not exactly a figure for my list, does anyone here know anything about Mr. Robert Barron, who was a voice actor in Robotech and worked on the English dub of Macross? He started as Abraham Lincoln in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.

Re: The Anime Nostalgia Podcast & Blog

New episode went up Friday! Sakura Wars chat with Samantha! http://animenostalgia.blogspot.com/2020/03/the-anime-nostalgia-podcast-ep-85.html It's a good episode! I really like Sakura back when 5 came out on the PS2, though I will admit that its characters were kind of the weakest in the franchise....

Re: How bad would the Corona virus be to the convention scene

the contracts most conventions (and large events of any kind) have with their venues include a "force majeure" clause. The force majeure clause is, as Wikipedia says, "a common clause in contracts that essentially frees both parties from liability or obligation when an extraordinary event or circum...

How bad would the Corona virus be to the convention scene

I have heard from a lot of event organizers in America that they are being put in pecarity because of having to cancel their events. For people with experience here, how bad would cancelling anime conventions be to their organizers? Would they go bankrupt?

Re: An index of prominent figures in the early anime fandom?

Anyone here know what is the deal with John O'Donnel of Central Park Media? Is it true that he helped Sony to win their first Grammy? And what has he been doing after CPM went bankrupt?

Re: Series you think that should had been bigger in the West?

Tetsujin 28 (which version?) and Golgo 13 are a very curious baseline for what you're asking. How did you come to choose these two titles? With Tetsujin 28, I am talking about the 2004 anime. Wasn't it bombed back when it was released by Geneon? It's fortunate that Discotek has got a hand on its li...

Series you think that should had been bigger in the West?

IMHO, Golgo 13 and Tetsujin 28. I can understand why the later did not catch on in America, but Golgo 13 felt like it should had been a bigger hit with a noticable fandom. Also, is it true that Lupin III hasn't been selling well outside of Japan, and nostalgia for it which only existed in Japan is o...

What ettiquette was there in the days of Usenet?

I have come across a few article on the Internet in the 1990s, and some of them bemoaned that the early Internet was a much more polite place with its etiquette and self-policing. One even pointed to Eternal September was when the dams broke. So I just wonder what kind of etiquette was there at the ...

Re: Pirating anime music in the 1980s

Did anyone here use MiniDisc when it came out? I always like the type of records/optical discs that you can play from the caddies--that is why I still stick with my PSP and a bunch of UMD. Also, just curious, how do you guys deal with old official anime records? I am curious about whether is there a...
