Oh, man. Someone in the US really has to pick up the license for this and the Gunbuster Blu-rays.

Drinian left after TEM's panel before me since I waited to chat with TEM a bit on the way out, Sorry about that -- my girlfriend had just arrived at the convention center and she had never been to any sort of anime/sci-fi/nerd convention ever before. Wanted to make sure she was OK. Every year i...

I am horribly allergic to cats and pretty allergic to many dogs, but I have loaded up on antihistamines and visited both EM's and Tines' pets before and can attest to their being fine cats indeed.

Always leave them wanting more. I was pretty shocked, too. He was one of those people who never seemed to age, not truly.

Woah. How the heck does that happen? I thought Eva was pretty popular there. Most home media releases in Japan operate the same way that Disney does in the US: they strategically undersupply the market and take things in and out of print to try and motivate collectors to buy things now , rather tha...

Evangelion's out of print in Japan these days as well. There's no way that there will be an American re-release until it happens in Japan first. Too many concerns about reverse importation killing profits for the Japanese market. With the US and Japan in the same Blu-ray region, there's ...

Looks like Otakon is hosting some members of the original English cast this year. I wonder if more are to come.

Nice, I've had a Strida for several years now and have generally found folding bikes to be much more useful than full-sizes.

A few things up on eBay, including my Nadia and Mononoke posters and my Key/Visual Art's 10th anniversary box set, which has lots of little posters; I'm in no hurry to sell and as you can see I didn't spend a lot of time on photography: http://www.ebay.com/itm/261473890495 http://www.eba...

Anyway, I was maybe thinking instead sourcing my own frames and just getting the mats professionally cut. Has anyone else here done this before? I framed the posters you see in my pictures. Ikea sells frames of various sizes with pre-cut matting, which has been sufficient for my posters so far. The...

Is this the EOE one? http://i.imgur.com/7YlEdgR.jpg Nope, sorry. I took a few minutes to grab some poor-quality pictures of my posters. Yes, that is a hand-painted poster from North Korea. The Baltimore-related ones are actually silkscreened on plywood. A few on eBay right now -- Haruhi, Simpsons: ...

Yeah, I was waiting for someone to debunk that. I checked with my old tour company from the time I went to the DPRK (Koryo Tours) and they hadn't seen anyone with a haircut like that.

In more ominous DPRK news, apparently every male student in North Korea now has to get Kim Jong-Un's haircut.

^How do you buy from them? I know they're also on ebay. Dealer's hall at Otakon. (Yeah, I know...) I like to see what I'm buying. @Drin: You selling any of those Sadamoto Nadia or Eva ones? If you are, make sure you link us up because I'd be keen to see them at least. Everyt...
