is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcendental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? at least it is true that man has no control, even over his own destiny.


Great list... although, looking at it, some of these series feel like they were just released yesterday and we were watching them in my high school anime club (01-04).... it just hasn't hit me that I'm getting old, I guess.

Fanime 2014 Cosplays
Watson - Sherlock Holmes
Ichigo  - Bleach
Zorro [lost a bet!]



Fist of the North Star.  Have the movie if you can't find a place for the series.


maybe ideas for this year? idk. (yay nostalgia)
80's: Creamy Mami, Dirty Pair, Gundam!!
90's: Neon Genesis Evangelion (wow shocker), Cowboy Bebop (ok i know its not that old but its pretty great),Rurouni Kenshin, Sailor Moon!!!!, and Dragon Ball Z

Akira (1988), also Castle in the Sky, Grave of the Fireflies, and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind (all 80's movies) i mean you can't really go wrong with Miyazaki films

wow sorry i named like a lot of the really obvious ones that are shown a lot but hey
☆ Maybe I was born so that I would meet you ☆


For series from the 90s, I'd love to see Fushigi Yuugi on the list.


Really close to con but let's slide Robot Carnival in there this year if possible!  The Japanese R2 anniversary DVD release actually included the old English Streamline dub for "Presence" and "A Tale of Two Robots - Chapter Three: Foreign Invasion" and the transfer is pretty damn stunning.  The usual places online have it for download, or break out your original disc if you were fortunate enough to scrounge up a copy - and pay out the nose for it like I did.

Nostalgia room is one of my favorite parts of 'con - especially due the volunteer that was staffing the Nostalgia Room on Saturday morning last year (during VOTOMs and Patlabor) as he was awesome!  Very cool to talk with about old school anime, offered to turn the volume up if the bass from the marathon room was overpowering through the wall (which it wasn't), came over and apologized after a technical issue getting Patlabor to play; he was just an incredible person and one of the best staffers I have ever met at any convention.  I believe he was also staffing later during Fatal Fury 2 and Iria: Zeriam the Animation.  He also ran the dub tracks where available which is a big part of Anime nostalgia to a lot of us.

The Discotek release is essentially the R2 release, including the nostalgic Streamline dub for those two shorts.

I think it's cool when the Nostalgia Room runs titles that have been out of print for a long time but have recently re-released or are slated for re-release (or first release) soon.  Cat's Eye last year is a good example of this as was Cutey Honey and Mazinger Z two years ago.

For something fansubbed to toss into the mix, how about Armor Hunter Mellowlink?  Armored Troopers VOTOMS has been featured in the Nostalgia Room and Mellowlink is an outstanding stand alone prequel (timeline wise) set in the same universe.
