Party at Anime Central

If you have time, please come by my party, "Hunger Strike," at Anime Central. It will probably be on Saturday night after the masquerade, but I should have some flyers up at the con with more details.

As an anime fan I love both GUNBUSTER and DIEBUSTER immensely. I can't decide which I like more because while DIEBUSTER is overall better rounded and planned, GUNBUSTER does have some lows but when it soars it SOARS!!! Those last 2 episodes are still beyond brilliant. So as an anime fan I cheri...

Re: sadamoto sketch and autograph

Anno draws King's head as an uncircumcised dick w/hairy balls. I'm not sure if it's a comment on the ever-present nutsack King sported in the series (you never saw Scooby-Doo with one...wait...is that why he talked that way?) or just his little way of showing affection to the fan...

I think we're coming, perhaps, from different philosophies on what "art" is. I say "so-called works of art" not because I don't believe some works are worthy of being called art, but out of the perception I regard them as art because I "so-call" them art; to ot...

Jordan! That's pretty cool. You wouldn't happen to have any secret Dead Sea Scrolls in your possession, would you? :)

Like Gainax's other best work, Royal Space Force , Neon Genesis Evangelion is warning you that, detailed and subtle as it is, it was created as a self-conscious work of art. Its depths should therefore be seen as in a sense false by definition, and the real "Dude WTF?" you need to say ...

The first chapter of Sadamoto's Evangelion manga ran in the February 1995 issue of Shonen Ace magazine. Since it usually hits the stands in Japan about two months before the cover date, we can say it appeared between ten and eleven months before the TV premiere of Evangelion on October 4, 2005. ...

You know, i've always wondered...why do you type all anime series in caps, Carl? I think it's a habit of mine that goes back to the days when the net was text-only, and there were fewer ways to format text. Also, it's probably due to promotional instinct. When I used to show fansubs at ...

I just finished watching Gunbuster tonight, and I must say, wow . Another mind-blowing work by Gainax. Especially the ending. Good God, the ending was amazing. It makes me hate Gainax's recent run-of-the-mill "He is My Master" even more... [spoiler] I was nervous about watching the fi...

But aahh... since it's being released theatrically, won't the only fansub available be a shaky camcorded video of the movie screen? That's how I first saw the increasingly inaccurately titled The End of Evangelion . It had a flicker, too, due to mismatched frame rates. It only added to ...

There is very likely some truth to the idea Evangelion was something of a "trojan horse," whose content turned out to be shocking for broadcast television. Of course, had it not been on broadcast TV, it seems less likely it would have captured the imagination of the larger public as it did...

I believe the term "bridge bunnies" originated with MACROSS's Vanessa, Kim, and Sammy. The series introduced the idea of the "mack man" commander surrounded by female crew. MACROSS was, of course, Gainax's first chance to contribute to professional anime (Hiroyuki Yam...

See, this is why I kind of prefer the TV ending, which is like going out into the real world. The End of Evangelion and its re- re- re- re- posse is like going to grad school, one where you will never finish writing your dissertation.

Yes, but it was mentioned absolutely nowhere in the actual series. Eva went on to be a mega hit without anyone knowing/caring about the FAR. If it doesn't have a place in the core storyline, then I don't care about it. At most, it's fanwanking material. Actually, these doujinshi are my ...

I think Vol. 10 is either at the printers now, or should be sent there very shortly. I'm still surprised by the April release date. Is that accurate, and is there anything to be said about it? I think it's going to be more like late February. I think the best viewpoint on THE END OF EVANGEL...

The Japanese version has sold over 15 million copies. I assume that's total? 15 million per volume would be a bit much, that would be like 1 in 10 people owning a set of the Eva manga. How many copies of the Eva manga has Viz sold in North America? Yes, 15 million volumes total, which, for a te...
