If I'm not too late to the party, I'd like to meet up with some new people. I might be meeting one person but that hasn't been set in stone yet. I'm not new to Fanime, but considering how large it's been getting over the years, it's a LOT more intimidating....

Good morning old schoolers!

Fanime continues to creep ever closer.  It's nice to see such a healthy assortment of gatherings being hosted this year.  Starting off Friday's old school anime OPs with somewhat of an oddity and a bit of a history lesson...

Very loosely based on the massively influential Lensman books by E.E. Smith, SF New Century Lensman was an anime film released in 1984.  Now there's a decent chance you've seen that movie, as it was one of the three original anime films that the Sci-Fi Channel broadcast in the 1990's (along with Robot Carnival and Vampire Hunter D) as "Adventures in Japanese Animation."  Well after the success of the film in Japan, a TV series was created, Lensman: Galactic Patrol, with a separate continuity from the film.

Of the 25 episodes, only the first six had official home video releases on VHS and LaserDisc in Japan. The English version of the film only had a VHS and LaserDisc release in the USA and was never seen again.  See, it's said the estate of E.E. Smith hated the adaptation as it's so loose and different.  Honestly the Lensman anime follows Star Wars more than it does the Lensman books, which is funny as the first Lensman book, Galactic Patrol, had a huge influence on Star Wars.  Due to this later licensing disagreement, the Lensman anime virtually disappeared.

However The Skaro Hunting Society along with /m/subs released a deluxe subtitled version of the film a few years ago and is currently working on fansubbing the entire series.  As there were no official video releases for anything beyond episode six, they've been sourcing further episodes from VHS and Betamax recordings of the television broadcast.  They're up to episode nine and it's worth checking out.  Personally I love the world design of the series, especially the spacecraft and vehicles.  Awesome opening theme as well.

Celebrating An Era - 1980's!  Galactic Patrol Lensman (1984)

Okay, Lensman is a bit too obscure. Here's something more mainstream.

Celebrating An Era - 1990's! Revolutionary Girl Utena (1997)

Finishing out Friday with another series that found mainstream success outside of Japan, and another old school anime title that people don't really think of as such.

Celebrating An Era - 1990's! Rurouni Kenshin (1996)

Good morning! Starting our three old school anime OPs for Saturday with high energy. Regardless of opinion on Macross 7, the opening and its theme song is awesome - a shining example of how so much 90's anime began.

Celebrating An Era - 1990's! Macross 7 (1994)

Continuing on this Saturday with an opening theme I had stuck in my head when I was out running this morning - go figure.

Celebrating An Era - 1980's! Kimagure Orange Road (1987)

Closing out Saturday with an outstanding, and recently re-licensed, series that looks way more modern than its 1994 vintage.

Celebrating An Era - 1990's! Key The Metal Idol (1994)

Starting this Sunday's three old school anime OPs with a series that pretty much anyone can enjoy for at least a few episodes.

Celebrating An Era - 1980's! Urusei Yatsura (1981)

Remember, Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, and Dragon Ball GT are all old school. Continuously relevant to anime fandom - but still old school.

Celebrating An Era - 1980's! Dragon Ball (1986)

Closing out this weekend with a series I still really enjoy, one that was pretty popular in the 1990's, but has all but disappeared from discussion. The OP video source is far from ideal, but it's still the best I can provide.

Celebrating An Era - 1990's! Blue Seed (1994)
