Just what the world needs, another blog. This one's a place for me to put artifacts and articles about Japanese cartoons from the years 1960 to around 1985-1990 - "classic anime". Astro Boy, Speed Racer, Prince Planet, Amazing Three, Cyborg 009, Gatchaman, Mazinger Z, Getta Robo, Aim For The Ace!, Asteroid Mask, Gigantor, Hurricane Polimar, Captain Harlock, Captain Future, Flying Phantom Ship, Lupin III, Space Cruiser Yamato, Galaxy Express, Mobile Suit Gundam, Space Runaway Ideon, Super Space Fortress Macross, Super Dimension Century Orguss, Starzan S Okawari Boy, Crusher Joe, Dirty Pair, Patarillo, Urusei Yatsura, Giant Gorg, Dougram, Grandizer, Heidi, Animal Treasure Island, Unico, Ringing Bell, Future War 198X, Galatt The Great, Round Vernian Vifam, Rose Of Versailles, Blue Noah, et cetera, ad infinitum. I'll also be featuring reminisces and unearthed data about American anime fandom of the 70s and 80s.

Owing to other commitments (www.misterkitty.org) I will probably only be updating this blog once a week.

I published the print fanzine LET'S ANIME from 1990 until around 2000-2001 and many articles from the print zine will be appearing here. If you have links or news about new releases of old anime, feel free to let me know.

"Only" once a week is still more often than I can manage! I'll be sure to give you a plug on the AWO podcast once there's a few more articles up.

Not sure if you ever saw these pages. http://www.amazon.com/gp/richpub/syltguides/byauthor/A28J2AO598RHLS There is a wonderful guide here to old anime that was released on vhs/dvd and most people have no idea about it. I own a number of these hvs including Noozle,s Little Women, Grimm's Fairy Tale Classics, Littl'bits, and more!
