I’m not quite sure how to describe the Tumblr called Gener8ion — 80s/90s retro Japan? — but I just know that I love the visuals on display.
On top of that fantastic Shinichiro Yokata mix I mentioned the other day, I’ve also been musically obsessing over “city pop” of late, after I came across this piece. Just let all the YouTube mixes on that page guide you through the smooth sounds of 80s Japan. Kinda goes well with my current 1986 movie […]
Following on my 80s anime playlist, I re-watched the two Daicon shorts, which I still find to be fantastic, especially the second one. These are animated shorts that were created for two conventions — Daicon III and IV — and have never been released commercially since they liberally borrow from all sorts of famous properties. […]
You may remember that a few weeks ago I shared a really great primer on 80s anime. Since I’ve been enjoying dipping back into some of those old series, I decided to go one step further and try following that complete primer, going through everything that is recommended.

This is an old Leiji Matsumoto series from the 80s that I somehow had never heard of, despite the fact that in the US it had been released alongside the 70s Captain Harlock series, which is one of my favorite series of all time (albeit I watched it in its French incarnation, as Albator). I’ve […]
As I mentioned in my fall 2016 post, the second season of this Gundam series started this month, and that got me wanting to check out the series from the start. I’ve gotten into Gundam this year in a big way, but have been sticking so far with shows that take place in the Universal […]
