Preparing for the next SAAS anime meeting, I present you with the semi-complete history of Super Robot Anime, represented by opening credits! As usual, organized by date of release, and in the cut due to the length of the post.

I've purposely left out the Brave series of shows, since those are going to be their own separate themed meeting at a later date. Also, my listings for Super Robot anime in the 2007-2010 era may be a little spotty- I have not paid too much attention to things in "The Moe Years". XD

Research for the August San Antonio Animation Society meeting theme, which is Saiyuki aka Journey to the West. ^_^ ([livejournal.com profile] jameshanrahan had better come to this one! Heh!) Thus, here follows a list of links for clips, trailers and openings of TV shows and films based on this classic of Chinese literature. I wanted to put them in chronological order, but that's difficult since so many of the Chinese TV show versions are hard to place.

Unable to find: The Fire Ball (2005), or the Go Nagai animation that had a female version of Son Goku. (Capcom based Son-Son on this character- but I can find no reference to her anywhere online.) This list is probably far from complete.
doronjosama: (whee)
Just like the title says: in chronological order (of publication, not of air date), here are the openings (and clips and endings, sometimes) for anime (and TV shows and movies) based on manga that appeared in Weekly Shonen Jump and Monthly Shonen Jump. Mostly posting for [livejournal.com profile] denshousha for the upcoming SAAS anime meeting this month.

Finally finished this! I edited in the Monthly Shonen Jump series as well; debated for a long time whether I should include Ultra Jump, but finally decided against it. Enjoy!

This is mostly being posted for the benefit of [livejournal.com profile] denshousha, so we can get the SAAS meeting planned for this month. But hey, I thought other people might want to see these rare clips also. Watch and enjoy, opening credits for almost all the magical girl anime shows since 1966, in order by year. In the cut, because the list is HUGE.

I lean towards liking the stuff from the mid-1990's and earlier when it comes to magical girl shows, but I'm always pleased when I find something newer that's good. Princess Tutu is delightfully surreal and pretty, and no wonder I like it since it's by the guy who made Ojamajo Doremi which I also love. I'm a fan of the Sugar Sugar Rune manga, so will likely try the anime also. Bewitched Agnes sounds completely bonkers (wiki link), and gives nods in the title to the show that started the whole magical girl craze in Japan in the first place: Bewitched. Yes, the Elizabeth Montgomery show! We can blame the magical girlfriend genre of anime on the other American export: I Dream of Jeannie. But that's a whole other post!

[livejournal.com profile] veltonkyle uploaded a low-res version to YouTube, so here it is.



Yes, indeed, a parody of the Daicon 4 animation, with A-Kon cosplay. I see so many old friends in this video, it gives me a strong sense of natsukashii every time I watch it over again. ^_^ Credits at the end, naturally.

It's fun to watch it back to back with the Daicon 4 animation! Kyle really nailed it, I think.

Anyway, enjoy!

(In other things, I officially have the Con Crud. Dammit!)

Here is the list of titles that I observed being purchased by girls/women for their own enjoyment at the comic store I work at for last week. As always, stuff women were purchasing for boyfriends/sons/husbands is not included.

Fewer DVDs this time, more comics. Still interesting data, though I have no idea what to do with it. I think the whole vague idea of proving that there's no predictable way to say "women only buy this kind of thing, period!" has pretty much been done. I mean, the stuff the women buy in the store I work at has been all over the map- and often they buy things (and are quite passionate about said things!) that are aimed squarely at a male audience. They also seem to like to buy sexy stuff- and not just yaoi, I mean sexy stuff with hot chicks in tiny outfits. It happens all the time. (It seems to be fairly prevalent in anime fandom as well, shows that are packed to the gills with sexy girls get rented by women all the time.) I'll probably keep logging this stuff though, just because I am a little OCD.

In other stuff, there's been no time for LJ posting between day job work, Radio work and my favorite, house work. Alas!

A very light week this week, but from what I am told, the last two weeks of October are traditionally the slowest sales weeks of the year.

Lots of DVDs this week, as well as standard comics instead of manga. I'm still finding this gathering of information interesting, as I am only proving my theory that there is no "magic bullet" as to what women/girls will like in nerd media, they are all over the map, taste-wise. ^_^

A big manga week this week, and most of them yaoi titles. Which is completely unsurprising. ^_^

This was a short week for me, since I was only on the schedule for four instead of my usual five days (what with the getting courthouse-married and all...) Still, here is the list of titles that I observed being purchased by girls/women for their own enjoyment at the comic store I work at. This week's list is smaller, as we had fewer female customers on the shifts I worked. Since it's so small this week, it's not in a cut.

Comics/graphic novels:
Stephen King's Dark Tower: Treachery

Manga/manhwa:
Goth
Black Jack
Disgaea 2
Full Metal Panic
Rosario+Vampire

Misc:
RPG dice

We also had a pair of girls come in to get a birthday present for one of their boyfriends- they bought a Wanted graphic novel and some Magic: The Gathering cards. But since they weren't buying these things for themselves, I didn't include them in this week's listing.
