The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - ep 110: Giant Robo with MinovskyArticle

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

Last month, the beginning of a well-loved OVA series turned 30 years old:  Yasuhiro Imagawa’s love letter to mangaka Mitsuteru Yokoyama’s career, Giant Robo: The Animation (aka Giant Robo: The Day The Earth Stood Still)! And to celebrate this momentous occasion, Casey (aka MinovskyArticle) has returned to talk about all things Robo with me! For the first part of the podcast, we discuss in a spoiler-free way what exactly the series is, it’s history, why it’s special, and why you should check it out! After that, we go all out in the spoiler-zone to gush about our favorite characters, scenes, and answer all your listener questions! (Spoiler talk starts at around the 1:34:17 mark.) So sit back, relax, and celebrate one of our favorite anime series with us in this GIANT-sized, nearly 3-hour long episode!

SOLD OUT! THANK YOU!! 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!
