Another Anime Boston 2011 Panel: Get Offa My Lawn!

18 Mar

I’ve just agreed to serve on one more Anime Boston 2011 Panel: Get Offa My Lawn, in which us old geezers school the young’uns on how good they have it these days.

Back in my day, we had three anime shows, and we found them by turning the UHF dial. And we liked it that way.

(Which three, you might ask? Well, Kimba, Speed Racer, and Astro Boy of course.)

So . . . if you’re interested in Japanese animation or just plain want to watch a bunch of people running around Boston in awesome costumes, or if you’re intrigued by any of the other panels I’m involved with, mark your calendar for April 22-24, 2011. The old geezer panel is currently scheduled for 5pm on the 22nd, but schedules are subject to change.

Even if you don’t make it to any of my panels, I’m pretty darn easy to spot: Just look for the middle-aged lady with short blonde hair, glasses, and (most likely) carrying a Tokidoki bag or Totoro backpack. Even just the middle-aged part narrows the crowd down a whole lot.

    My first anime was Prince Planet when we first got cable TV. Speed Racer shortly followed.

    Then the one that hooked me. Star Blazers (Space Battleship Yamato). I would get up early just to watch this every morning before school on WGN out of Chicago.

    Then after school was Ultra Man, then Johnny Sokko and his Flying Robot and later on was Spectreman.
