In this issue, I included a Yoshiyuki Tomino interview to promote the domestic release of Garzey’s Wing.
I loved how this one starts:
Animerica: How did you become an animator?
Yoshiyuki Tomino: I’m not an animator. I’m a director. There’s a difference.
Animerica: Then how did you become a director?
Yoshiyuki Tomino: It was the only job I took.
Animerica: Would you still like to become a director of motion pictures?
Yoshiyuki Tomino: Of course. If I had a choice I would rather direct motion pictures than anime. I hate anime.
Oooooohhh Kay then….
Sailor Moon issues were the hardest to get when it came to filling in the holes to get an entire run of Animerica 1992-2005. Popular title = Put it on the cover = Profit!
The featured article is a great primer on every series, Moon, R, S, Super S and Sailor Stars.
Fushigi Yugi the Mysterious Play is the spotlight feature. (always had a problem spelling and pronouncing that show)
VHS Dub and Subtitled pricing still was bonkers in 2000. DVD pricing still remains the same to this day. $10 difference in a sub and dub. An English dubbed production costs more than a subtitled only one and yet…$10 cheaper. I wonder if this was why dubs were more popular then.
I think Planet Anime (RIP) needed a couple of more sites.
Anime That Time Forgot: Cybernetics Guardian – with these cool DVD-ROM features!!!!
AnimeKomix add mixes Martin Lawrence’s You Go Girl with Yu Gi Oh! Nice.
I love that one of the letters “Fushigi Yugi Online” told people you could stream the show via RealPlayer via a channel called W-Vision.
This issue came with stickers!
And here is the Yoshiyuki Tomino interview with just a hint of Garzey’s Wing.
