Revolutionary Girl Utena – Similar to Sailor Moon features, I decided to scan this first in-depth feature from this issue. It’s very informative. My favorite part of Utena is the beginning sword fight song and the stairs. Lots of stairs. Best watching experience for Utena to me is still the metaphor-laden movie.
Here are some more highlights from this issue:
I scanned the Editor page because it highlighted talented people who worked on this magazine.
Fun with Porken Beans is all about Sailor Moon. I wonder how many lewd entries they received.
The Bandai AnimeVillage.com ad wins the award for “Most Font Colors”
Holy crap do I have a lot to cover in this issue of Animerica. Part 3 of “Beyond Sailor Moon” covers Sailor Moon SuperS and and Sailor Stars. I’ve noticed from Google Analytics that more people check out the magazines with Sailor Moon. I scanned this feature since it covers a lot of all things Sailor Moon.
This month’s cover feature is the 20th Anniversary of Mobile Suit Gundam. In 1998, Gundam finally gets released in the US by Bandai Entertainment via Anime-Village.com Tons of ads in this issue, some great some really, really bad. Let’s enjoy this time machine, shall we?
Get a pencil and write all that has been weighing on your mind–all that crap that keeps you from where you want to be onto a piece of paper. Fold that paper in half, then fold again, and again and again until the creases make it impossible to fold. Take another piece of paper and write how you want to feel and what you want to accomplish.
Now place the the two pieces of paper together. It might seem a bit cathartic, but this helps me. Puts things into perspective. All your problems physically look smaller than what you want to accomplish. That, and you got all the thoughts rumbling in your head onto physical paper.
Take action. Either unfold the paper and work on those items bugging you or work from the other paper and do things. Your choice. At least you are making headway.
Not a whole lot of commentary from this issue. There was a cover feature article on Kiki’s Delivery Service and the works of Hayao Miyazaki. I scanned the editor page for a piece on Akira Kurosawa, who passed away that year in 1998. Now, on to the ads:
I’ve had several friends talk about places that serve chicken and waffles. I was going to try to make this at home, but I didn’t have eggs or flour for frying up the chicken. So…Improvise! Instead of fried chicken on top of a waffle, I decided to grill the chicken and put it IN...
5 museums in the northeast have permanent exhibits showcasing my cat hair art sculptures. Got started doing commissioned artisanal sculputres with traditional materials. Then one day a patron asked for something…unusual A true artist uses what materials are available. It was Spring and my cat what hella shedding. Mother of innovation – Cat hair...
I saw this image in the gallery section of the new Iron Man 3 movie site. Very similar to the Google Glasses. I wonder if Vegeta has filed patent or trademark infringement on Tony Stark, Stark Industries and/or Google. Hmmm…Vegeta looks none too pleased.
I took a week-long stay-cation last week. While at home flipping through the TV, I see something familiar. Huh. Those Necomimi brain wave sensing cat ears that sell for over $100 we gawked at by Katie Lee and Hoda.
Sometimes you have to scratch your head on why some licensing deals are made. ...
Keep it on the up and up. Alright? Will you do that for me?
…but it’s still the most useful implement of emphasis.
