Recap Throwback: Anime Weekend Atlanta 15

The following is a republication of a recap of my first Anime Weekend Atlanta in attendance! It was originally published following the convention in 2009. Since we’re in a situation where there are no cons to attend, unless virtually, in 2020, I figured this would be a good opportunity to wipe the dust off some of these posts, and with a little editing of typos here and there.

A LOT has changed since then, which also brings up a reminder that there are things that once were acceptable, which is now viewed with caution; I am not going to bring it to attention now, but you may figure it out as you read along, especially if you’ve been keeping up with the anime industry in the US in 2019.

Free MMORPG Issues in the Mid-2000s

The following post was originally written and published during the early days of a general MMORPG blog I ran around 2005, a little before I launched Centaku Media. It’s about three free MMORPG titles I played that at the time were pretty cool at the time. Although I’m sure if these are still running in 2020, they probably haven’t aged well.

#PoorSportsmanship: Weeaboo Stories, or: “How NOT to be an Otaku”

Note: This was originally written on September 21st, 2011 and is republished for archival purposes. By the time I posted this, the Tumblr account for Weeaboo Stories was taken down, likely for obvious reasons. This post originally included links to the account, but not even the Wayback Machine has them. So previously existing links will be highlighted in red for those who (whether it was for good or bad) missed out on the dark side of the fandom. Just imagine what went down in the broken links…

Interesting Find: The Mega Mac and Grand Mac

This was originally published on February 17th, 2008.

Behold! The Mega Mac! It’s a bigger version of McDonald’s famous “Big Mac” Sandwiches–and it’s only available in Japan. Looking at this makes me hungry. Eating this would probably make you full for a few days! Don’t think that it will be coming to the US, or anywhere else soon. I can just see all the lawsuits…

Dragon Ball Z: The Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans (1994) – OVA Review

This post was originally published on July 18th, 2008. Also known as “Dragon Ball Z Gaiden: Saiyan Zetsumetsu Keikaku“, and alternatively The Plan to Destroy the Saiya-jin, the feature was remade and released with Raging Blast 2 for the PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2010, and is available in the US. Sadly, there is not an English dub for both versions.

Dragon Ball Z Gaiden: Saiyan Zetsumetsu Keikaku (The Plan to Destroy the Saiya-jin")

Huh? There’s more of Dragon Ball Z?! Yes, there is! In case you haven’t been to just about every DBZ fansite on the web, even those that are in a language different from what you already know, there is a Dragon Ball Z OVA (Original Video Animation) somewhere on one of these websites. I won’t say which one (they will come after me if I mention them), but it’s likely that it won’t be licensed soon due to the way this released. You’ll find out soon enough.
