Returning To Anime Roots

Even though this may be my first in dept  anime posts I do, I’m doing it because the anime was one if the first which hooked me on Anime. This might show my age, but back in the 90s, the Sci-Fi channel had a week long movie marathon called: “Festival of Anime.” This hit almost every Summer & I use to watch it, making a list of what Anime looked interesting enough to pick up.

My first or second year into the festival, a Project A-ko peaked my interest, (Image Below).


Even though it has questionable subject matter, (I looked past that, because the movie has other good points), like, comedy, action, tanks etc. After watching this anime, I scrambled to see what store had it, but at the time, only the Japanese version could be found. Sure, now I only watch English subtitled anime, but back then I was dumb lol 🙂

Well, like I said a few days ago, I’ve bought Project A-ko on dvd & it quickly came, later that week. The first night after it got to me, I watched it, & boy it maybe some years old, but the movie still makes me laugh! It feels great having one of the first anime that got me into the craze back!

Next plan is to get more anime and rebuild my once huge stash!


State Of Affairs

Wow, I just looked at when my last entry was &, all I can say is I had my head in the sand, heh… But no, I am sorry for the long long silence, just didn’t feel like myself is all. However, there are things I’ve done, bought etc. that I’d like to touch on now, then do a detailed post later, (In a couple days).

First off: My 1/16th Slash has been sold! Yes, the truck that brought me back into the Radio Controlled hobby is now someone else’s joy, but don’t think I’ll be going out of the hobby anytime soon. I’ve got my old Tamiya TL-01 car that I put new life into, & it’s finally getting it’s broken piece replaced.

Add to that R/C, I’m planning on putting a Stampede 2WD or a 2WD Rustler in layaway next month or after the first of the year.

Now for other news, Last month it was decided that I would buy some of the old Anime series/movies that broke me into the culture. Well, the first dvd on my list got here & enjoyed, (more later).
