The roughly mid-90's and earlier (generally pre-Toonami, pre-anime boom) era of anime & manga fandom: early cons, clubs, tape trading, Nth Generation VHS fansubs, old magazines & fanzines, fandubs, ancient merchandise, rec.arts.anime, and more!

Anime Central 1999 program book

Post by davemerrill »

I got an email from someone researching the early years of Anime Central, asking if I could scan in the program books for 1998 and 1999 - and I can't find my 1998 program book, but I do have the 1999 book. I scanned it in and it's up at the Internet Archive. So if you're interested in what a slick, glossy, professional anime convention program book looked like in 1999, now is your chance to find out! https://archive.org/details/acen99book

Such a time capsule, loved looking through this. This is why the Internet Archive is my favorite website :) Thank you for scanning it!
I'm sure the 1998 program book's out there somewhere.

Anybody know what happened to "Daiken Yoko-o"? A search for that name just brings up vintage con photos of him- is there a better name for him?

runesaint: Hmmm. "Middle School", perhaps?
