This Friday: The return of of Anime Nostalgia's Pen Pal Mailers!

 



Some of you might remember that last year, I used the fanart sketch cards I did for the #sixfanarts challenge on Twitter to make "Pen Pal Mailers": mailed envelopes with a random sketch card, stickers, and other fun goodies in the vein of old-school pen paling for a set amount of tips to my ko-fi. And since I did more cards for Drawtober last year, I thought it'd be fun to do it again! On Friday, August 12, 2022 at 12pm PST, all 10 Pen Pal Mailers will be listed at my ko-fi shop HERE (that link it won't work until the set time). For those who weren't around the first time I did them, or just need a refresher, here's how it'll work!



For the base ko-fi tip of $12, you'll get The Basic Mailer! This will include:
  • random sketch card
  • 1 Anime Nostalgia Podcast logo sticker
  • 1 random manga bookmark
  • a hand-written thank you, all mailed in a hand-decorated envelope!




Or if you're feeling generous, if you tip $15 or more, you can get The Deluxe Mailer! The Deluxe Mailer will include:

  • Everything included in The Basic Mailer
  • MORE goodies like stickers, vintage trading cards, memos, and other fun things! The more you decide to tip me, the more things I will stuff into that envelope!

PLEASE NOTE that shipping is FREE worldwide because I'll just be putting a stamp on the envelopes (I have international stamps for those outside the US!). However, this means there is no tracking number on these mailers, and by purchasing, you agree to this. (In the event that your mailer somehow gets lost in transit, I will be happy to create a replacement to send for you.)

In the spirit of pen pal mail being a bit of a surprise, you won't get to chose which character art you receive in the mail. HOWEVER: if there's a character in the bunch you would feel REALLY disappointed to get, please leave me a message and I'll do my best to try not to send you that specific character.

Here's a look at all of the sketch cards that will be available:


Remember: only 10 mailers will be available, since there's only 10 sketch cards, so be sure to snag one while you can! Again, these will be available Friday, August 12, 2022 at 12pm PST, at my ko-fi shop HERE.

The money I get from these will help me out with some bills, so I thank you all for your continued support!

The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - ep 109: ReView: Lily C.A.T.


Subscribers! Be sure to go to the blog to read the description easier & check out links for this episode!

This month’s episode is another short ReView! What is a “ReView” episode, you might ask? Well, it’s my highly-clever (ok not really) name for episodes where I go back and revisit 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. This month, thanks to Tim (the 2nd winner of the ANP Says Trans Rights raffle), I’m rewatching one of Sci-Fi Channel’s Saturday Anime staples: Lily C.A.T.! Am I feline any different about this movie, or do I think it belongs in the litter box? Let’s find out!

The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - ep 108: Classic Devilman with Salvatore



Subscribers! Be sure to go to the blog to read the description easier & check out links for this episode!

Not only is June the 50th Anniversary of Go Nagai’s manga, but in the US June is also Pride Month! And at the request of AJ (who won the choice of a full podcast episode topic in my ANP Says Trans Rights raffle), we’re talking all about the iconic queer-coded action-horror classic Devilman! Go Nagai superfan Salvatore is back with me this month to talk all about the original 70s manga, TV series, AND the 80s/90s OVA series. We discuss differences between them, what we love & maybe not love so much about each version, and the absolutely MASSIVE influence Go Nagai’s work has had over manga & anime in the last 50 years in this fun, extra-long episode!

Thank you!

 


A little late, but I wanted to make some thank-you art for all of those who participated in the fundraiser back in March! Anime Nostalgia Podcast mascots Ret & Ro thank all of you who not only donated, but shared the link with others & helped spread the word. Without all of you, we never would have been able to raise so much for The Transgender Education Network of Texas!

The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - ep 106: ReView: BASTARD!! OVA

Subscribers! Be sure to go to the blog to read the description easier & check out links for this episode!

I’m finally back after my brief hiatus with a brand-new episode! And this month’s episode is another short ReView! What is a “ReView” episode, you might ask? Well, it’s my highly-clever (ok not really) name for episodes where I go back and revisit 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. With Netflix’s new BASTARD!! anime just around the corner, what better time to revisit the original OVA that came out in the 90s? Grab your swords and your bikini armor and lets see if this one still holds up!
