Before Social Media, before AOL Chatrooms, and even before Geocities Fansites, hundreds of anime fans socialized the old fashioned way: through snail mail! The hayday of anime penpalling is long forgotten, but my long-time friend Mayra is here to recollect how we first met over 20 years ago via penpalling & how it used to be a huge part of how we connected with fans. How’d it all happen? What kind of things did we talk about? Take a break from your Thanksgiving festivities and take a listen as we reminisce on this nearly forgotten pocket of fandom history!

This month’s episode is another ReView! What is a “ReView” episode, you might ask? Well, it’s my highly-clever (ok not really) title for episodes where I go back and watch an older title I haven’t seen in a long time, and see if what I remember (and what my opinions on it) are still the same now that some time’s gone by.It’s back to school time for many of you, so what better time to watch a silly OVA about the worst school ever?! This month’s rewatch is 1988′s The Ultimate Teacher.

Happy 30th, Ranma!

September marks the 30th Anniversary of Ranma 1/2, which first debuted as a manga in 1987 in Japan! But did you know the anime has been released in multiple formats over the years? Here’s a (very) quick look & comparison at the history of Viz’s different releases in the US!

Click image for fullsize 

For years, Ranma 1/2 was Viz’s flagship title, and was a popular staple in most anime & manga fan’s collections at the time. For a while, they even produced Ranma 1/2 merchandise, including mugs, t-shirts, posters, clocks, and even a personal organizer. It wasn’t until the late 90s & early 00s that Ranma was knocked out of the top spot for fan favorite, replaced by a different Rumiko Takahashi title: Inuyasha.

It took many years to dub all of Ranma 1/2. The first VHS release was in 1993, and was dubbed in the old-school, analog way. Initial releases were slow, because it took a lot of time to produce & release them. Over the years, dub actors had to be recast for several characters, but they finally finished dubbing the entire series sometime around 2003 with the release of the final DVD box set.
Unlike Viz’s original VHS release, their initial DVD sets were a co-production with Pioneer for a brief period until they started handling their own DVD & blu-ray releases in-house. Viz also released several Laserdiscs for Ranma 1/2 with Pioneer, but not the TV Series--only the Movies & OVAs.

Speaking of the OVAs & Movies, the final Ranma 1/2 bluray set with the remastered movies & OVAs was released last week! That means all of Ranma 1/2 is now finally available in the US in high definition, as well as all of the manga! Fitting that it’s during it’s anniversary month.

Happy 30th, Ranma! Still looking good, even after all these years.

This month’s podcast episode is a double feature! First, returning guest Nitro & I discuss the Atsuko Tanaka panel from this year’s AnimeFest convention, as she’s a very prolific animator who’s worked on many notable things--including working with Hayao Miyazaki on his various Lupin III works! And speaking of Lupin, this month was Lupin’s 50th Anniversary! So part 2 of the podcast is me, Nitro, and returning guest Tricia (aka boobly) to chit-chat & ramble about Lupin as a franchise & what we love (and maybe don’t love so much) about it.

Listen as Khoda shares her anime origin story with me, we muse over 80s power ballads, and we both try to convince you all to watch this under-appreciated gem.

So to celebrate, I’ve invited Sean of Zimmerit.moe to talk all about it: the many western influences that inspired it, why it’s label of “cyberpunk” is a bit of a misnomer, and how some aspects of it were surprisingly progressive for an 80s OAV.

Book Review: Her Eternal Moonlight

 
I was approached recently by the authors of this book to do a review of it, as my podcast & blog are pretty relevant to part of the Sailor Moon experience. Like myself, many of my followers were fans of Sailor Moon since back before the internet was a constant presence in our everyday lives. The idea of a book focused not just on the history of Sailor Moon through the lens of its North American fans, but specifically how it touched the lives of its female fandom sounded quite intriguing. So of course, I jumped on the chance to read this book, and I wanted to share my thoughts with all of you!

And who better to talk about it with than my friend Pat, lover of all things robot related and host of The Cockpit Podcast.

Happy birthday ANP!


I noticed that today marks the 3rd anniversary of the very first episode of The Anime Nostalgia Podcast! Wow, has it really been that long?! Thanks everyone for listening & your continued support. I’m constantly floored by all the awesome people who’ve asked great questions, helped me out, been on the show, sent me messages, or left reviews.

And speaking of , if you’ve ever listened to the podcast & are feeling generous, I always love getting emails & comments from you guys letting me know what you think! And I read every single itunes/Stitcher review I get, so if you wanna give the podcast a “birthday present” of sorts, feel free to leave one for it! Heck, if it’s a good one, maybe I’ll even read it on a future episode!

It really means a lot to know people appreciate the work I put into the podcast, so thanks to the people who already have. Here’s hoping I can continue ANP for years to come!

Guest spot - ANNCast!


On Thursday I was a part of a live recording/streaming of Anime News Network's ANNCast! Thanks for all that stopped by or sent in questions, it was a lot of fun! They now have the episode up for streaming/download on their website to listen to! A warning: There's a bit of talk from ANN co-host Jake of a newer anime series that has sexually explicit themes between 4:55-8:43 time marks, so that whole chunk is really NSFW (or possibly not safe for anyone! lol). If you wanna skip straight to talking about older anime stuff, that starts around the 24:21 mark. Thanks ANNCast for having me on the show!

Next month (April 2016), a brand new season of the Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure anime will begin! So what better time to talk about the classic series & what makes it tick. And who better to talk about it with than my friend & Jojo superfan Zee, as well as special surprise guest, Jason Thompson! Jason is not only a JJBA fan, he’s the editor of Viz’s English release of Stardust Crusaders! Listen as we talk about the many influences of Hirohiko Araki, what went on during Viz’s Stardust Crusaders manga release, and how right now is one of the best times to jump into this 30 year old franchise.

And literally JUST after I finished editing this episode, Viz Media announced they will be streaming the new part 4: Diamond is Unbreakable anime! They also have gotten the rights for the previous seasons, so they’ll also be streaming those soon, and possibly re-releasing them in much better DVD releases than the one WB released, so hopefully we’ll get more details soon!

In this episode, I’m joined by Brian Ruh, author of Stray Dog of Anime: The Films of Mamoru Oshii to talk about...Basset Hounds! err, the works of prolific creator Mamoru Oshii, of course! Join us as we give a brief overview on Oshii’s career, the many “creative differences” Oshii’s encountered over the years, and what it was liking writing an academic book on anime.

It may be January, but there’s still room for some holiday leftovers, right? For the first episode of the new year, I have a short podcast episode that’s a little different than my normal “ReView” episodes. Yes, I participated in a Secret Santa this year, and I was gifted a little-known 90s OAV called Demon Fighter Kocho. How’d it go? Well, you’ll have to listen to find out!
