Good evening old schoolers!

I hope those in the Fanime area have been keeping cool over these past few days, as the temperatures have been roasting.  For this week's OP, an interesting one from a series that is finally getting an official English subtitled release shortly.  The story goes that when World Events Productions was planning out their Voltron project they wanted to combine three Japanese series to make one healthy syndication package.  The intention was to use Dairugger, Albegas, and Daltanious.  Due to a misunderstanding, asking for "the one with the lion," they were sent Golion in place of Daltanious.  After seeing the far more modern and slick Golion, the arrangement was made to acquire it for redevelopment and localization instead.  Golion became Lion Force Voltron / Voltron III, Dairugger became Vehicle Voltron / Voltron I, and Albegas was intended to be Voltron II but was dropped in favor of contracting additional US-centric episodes of Lion Force Voltron.  ...and well, Daltanious became little more than a footnote in the history of 1980's Americanized anime.  I still swear I saw a Daltanious VHS tape in a Suncoast in the early 2000's but have never been able to come up with any proof... oh well.

Good evening old schoolers!

Continuing on with an absolute classic, not much more can be said that has already been.  However, if you are only familiar with Dragon Ball Z or the more modern flavors of Dragon Ball, the early anime series is absolutely worth checking out.

Hi, my name is, Dani and I've been a cosplayer for 9 years and have been attending Fanimecon since 2015! I love BNHA and have always wanted to host a BNHA panel!
I've hosted panels in the past and would love to host a BNHA Panel next year. I hosted a Percy Jackson panel and a Voltron panel, the other being the most popular of the two. With the con being officially announced and hopefully being back in person, I'd love to be able to host a panel again!

Panel Info:

I'd love for the panel to be mostly Q&A with some games included and for the panel to be an hour and a half and hopefully on the second day of the con! I'd also love to include trivia and have prizes! I was thinking instead of everyone being in their school uniforms, we could all wear the P.E uniforms instead!

Characters needed:
Midoriya
Bakugo
Todoroki
Yaoyorozu
Kirishima
Kaminari
Iida
Ashido
Jiro


I'm not entirely sure how many panelist I can have but, I would love to have as many people as possible!

Contact Info:
Insta: dani.c.cosplays(best way of contacting me)
Email: danic4069@gmail.com ( I don't check this as often, but I understand not everyone has an Instagram)
Discord: dani.c.cosplays#4320

Panelist requirements:

I won't have auditions but, I would love it if people can confirm 100% if they are attending the con by maybe the end of the summer so that I can spend time actually planning the panel, as I do have two cons between the end of the year and a few months ​before Fanime. 


Google form for those interested in being in the panel:

Good late evening old schoolers!

I'm considering this the first post on the way back to normalcy as now we're within one full year of the next convention cycle.  Outside of everything else in the world, the past two years (one without Fanime and one with the virtual convention that just wrapped up) have felt very different without an in-person FanimeCon.  Things continue to look up in this corner of the world, making the return in 2022 look more and more like a certainty.  With that, I'm going to continue to post every week right up until FanimeCon 2022, and dare I say maybe even start to promote the gathering again in the next few weeks.

ONE YEAR TO GO - START!

Going with the Sailorstars opening this week.  Although it's probably my least favorite season of Sailor Moon, I really do like the opening sequences and the opening song.

Why do I dislike Sailorstars so much?  Ah... for a number of reasons - namely retconning the anime ending of Sailor Moon S, having "hero" characters who are completely worthless, and lacking any kind of character arc outside of a couple really well written episodes centering on Haruka and Michiru.  A lot of this has to do with trying to curve the manga back into the anime plots, which by this time had gone off in completely different directions, resulting in this kind of strange third chronology that doesn't really adapt the manga nor follow the anime it's supposed to cap.  In my mind Sailorstars always got a free pass for all of that due to its erroneously perceived adult and serious nature that supposedly prevented it from being adapted into English for the longest time.  A lot of its notoriety in the United States stems from it being perceived as this mythical final season of Sailor Moon that you couldn't watch - at least in my opinion.
