Redshift #26

Gosenzosama Banbanzai! (1989)

Welcome back! Here’s your latest round-up of attention to older anime around the internet. We’ve been at this for a year now, so thank you very much for your interest if you’re reading this, whether you’ve been here from the start or have only just dropped in!

As usual, remarks from Feez are in blue and those from Thaliarchus are in red.

This site started because I wished a resource like this could exist so that I could use it myself. I’m sure we do a very imperfect job, and we’re always expanding our net to try to catch what’s happening out there, but I’m still pleased with what we’ve done so far. As an unexpected bonus, I think we’ve both learned new things, and indeed learned of anime which we didn’t know existed before!

It’s also been heartening to see just how active the various communities gathered around older anime are: when you see the odd post in isolation it’s easy to get the impression that things are moribund, but when they’re pulled together matters look rather different—this post details, for example, translation efforts on more than twenty older anime titles. Here’s to a successful second year of indexing!

Redshift #25

Nightsong of Splendour (1989)

Here’s your latest round-up of attention to older anime around the web! The load on this post is a little lighter, which we hope is just because the end of the Christmas break has made hobbyists less active, and not because we’ve missed whole tranches of activity…

This blog’s series of index posts is coming up on its first birthday—it’s 28 January—so thank you very much to everyone who’s reading! We might or might not manage more developed reflections on this anniversary in our next post.

As usual, remarks from Feez are in blue and those from Thaliarchus are in red.

Redshift #24

Genma Taisen (1983)

We’re back, after a festive extra week’s break. The holidays seem to have brought out a feast of posts and podcasts about older anime, and of new translation work, perhaps because we’ve all had a bit more time to spare. So, without further ado, here’s all of that activity that we could find, indexed!

As usual, remarks from Feez are in blue and those from Thaliarchus are in red. Continue reading “Redshift #24”

Redshift #7

Turn A Gundam, nineteen years old last week and the subject of two posts linked below

In contrast to last fortnight, we have a bumper crop of material this time around: twenty blogposts and columns, plus the usual smattering of podcasts and newly-translated episodes! As usual, remarks from Feez are in blue and those from Thaliarchus are in red. (And I recently noticed that these colours don’t come through in feedreaders, or at least not in the one I use. I’m, ah, thinking about whether we can do anything about that!)
