I was at Big Apple Anime Fest (BAAF) in August 2003 and got to see the world premiere of Satoshi Kon’s Tokyo Godfathers and also got to see Millennial Actress as part of the double bill that evening. That was a treat.
Below is a feature article introducing Satoshi Kon’s directorial debut for Perfect Blue. Take time out of your day to read this 3 page interview below. I still haven’t watched Perfect Blue nor Paprika. I really should. The only knowledge I have of Perfect Blue is this AMV that I first saw about 10 years ago.
Kite is on the cover. Similar to Perfect Blue. I know only about the show because of an AMV:
Highlights from this issue:
- First appearance of Outlaw Star.
Both Cowboy Bebop and Outlaw Star were first released in VHS with only a $5 markup for the English Subtitled version
Anime That Time Forgot: Knights of Ramune and Elf Princess Rane. ADV had some lesser know titles in their ads like Master of Mosquiton, Legend of Crystania and Sorcerer Hunters.
The profile shot for the City Hunter movie makes City Hunter look really fat.
I like posting the “My Prize and I” You get to see the fashion styles of ’90s anime fans. To the right you can read the anime convention calendar for the rest of 1999.
I think Video Girl Ai wins the house ad award for VIZ. This show has been in TONS of issues. And for all that effort, this show has mostly been forgotten by fandom.
I really like Mobile Suit Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory
Ad or VIZ’s PULP line of graphic novels.
That’s it! On to the next issue.
