The Notenki Memoirs


After my post about re-watching the Daicon III & IV shorts, my buddy Jason DeGroot pointed me to something I absolutely can’t wait to devour. This page hosts a digital version of the now out-of-print English edition of The Notenki Memoirs, an autobiography by Gainax founder Yasuhiro Takedo, who was also very active in the anime/manga scene (including the Daicon events).

Shoji Murahama


The latest episode of the excellent web documentary series Toco Toco features animation producer Shoji Murahama. Originally working at Gainax, and then founder of Gonzo, it’s interesting to see him here working at Emon Animation Company, a Chinese company that aims for a global audience and produces series for web streaming.
