    Default Anime Fan for 25 years (since 1995)

    actually, technically, a good while longer, since i vaguely recall sitting through an episode of ROBOTECH as a very young boy around what must have been sometime in 1986 or so.

    a nephew gave me his old 1985 REVELL ROBOTECH CHANGERS VEXAR transformable model (U.S. market reboxing of 1983 IMAI MACROSS VF-1S Focker 1/72 VARIABLE TYPE)

    around 1988/1989 or so, and then i got a taste of Mecha Anime tropes at a more readily-impressionable age around 1991,

    thanks to the Mecha action-platfomer game "ASSAULT SUIT LEYNOS" (TARGET EARTH in the U.S.) on the SEGA GENESIS games console.

    my Anime fandom truly began to consciously coalesce around 1995, when my dad bought me an old IMAI MACROSS 1/100 VF-1J Ichijo GERWALK mode model kit,

    and PLAYMATES toy company reissued the old original MATCHBOX-made ROBOTECH Mecha toys under their "EXO-SQUAD" line.

    around that time, i discovered SUNCOAST VIDEO at the mall, and their Anime selection. first i concentrated on ROBOTECH, -via the dual-episode FHE VHS cassette volumes-

    found VIZ MEDIA's ANIMERICA Anime magazine, and began picking up issues often as i could,

    and then i discovered MANGA VIDEO's MACROSS II and MACROSS PLUS movie compilation releases, Pure, uncut MACROSS, for the first time.

    from there, i began to branch out from Mecha-themed anime, with series such as Galaxy Fraulein Yuna and Tenchi Muyo!

    and then the early-21st-century and the DVD Anime boom hit, and i was well and truly off to the Anime Races.


    i'm about as hardcore today as i've ever been, and, thanks to the internet, i now have the kind of Mecha and Character-themed merchandise

    that i would have killed for as a young teen, two-plus decades ago...

    Feel free to join in our discussions. We are in bad need of new blood.



    No, that is not what I mean about needing new blood.

    Can't call you new, but we can pretend you are. Welcome to the site!

    You do have quite a cute collection there, and I happen to go crazy with collections. Will keep my eye on you! (I am no stalker, probably. Just probably.)
    Jokes aside, that's quite an amazing history. Feel proud!

    25 years?! Welcome newbie.


    I remember when I was starting out with shows like Serendipity, Unico, the Manx mouse, and so on.

    Gods I'm old...
    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.
