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!

Redshift #19

Hustle Punch (1965)

Here’s our latest index of attention to older anime. Materials! Materials, materials. There’s a little glut of posts about material things—both production artefacts and publications which accompanied anime—this time around, so we’ve put those together at the top of the post.
