PetarB posted a topic in Anime or Science FictionWho liked Crusher Joe? Some mecha designs were by Shoji Kawamori who did beautiful work on Macross, as we all know. Some elements of his design evolution can clearly be seen in in Pinnace Fighter. Although a couple of models of this bird have been available in 144 & 100 scale, I didn't like them... they seemed to squat or not detailed enough for me. So I decided to build my own. Model is under construction, WIP below: http://s177.photobucket.com/albums/w239/PetarB/Pinnace/ Where I'm at:
Misa Hayase: White Reminiscences
Gubaba posted a topic in Movies and TV SeriesAKA, I need motivation... Okay, for the past few years, I've been working on the Misa novella. I finished My Fair Minmay in about six months, and I (foolishly) thought that the Misa book would take about the same amount of time. Then I discovered that a full prose book takes a HELL of a lot longer than a book of scripts. Anyway, I was doing pretty well on it, all things considered, until about six months ago, when I suddenly pooped out. I'm about thirty pages from the end, and have been for quite a while now. I look at the book, I sigh, and then I put it away. Part of it is that I'm overworked (in Japan, that's a given), but part of it is that I need more motivation to finish it. And I need deadlines. So here's the prologue. In two weeks, I'll post Chapter One. Two weeks after that, I'll post Chapter Two. My hope is that this will give me a deadline firm enough to actually FINISH those last 30 pages, so I can move on to stuff like the Perfect Memory stories. Anyway, here ya go. No illustrations (yet), but I hope you enjoy it! Misa Prologue.pdf EDIT: It's done. Full book HERE: http://depfile.com/tE8YKdH

Legend of the Galactic Heroes
JELEINEN posted a topic in Anime or Science FictionYesterday morning at about 4:00 AM, I finished episoded 110 of the Legend of the Galactic Heroes. Wow... It took me about three weeks to finish it all from start to end and it was more than worth it. I have to say, without any hesitation, that this is one of the greatest series of all time. More often than not, I can predict fairly well where a show is going and how it will end, but not with this one. It took so many twists and turns along the way that the only thing I could do was just hang on and see what happens next. Plus, how can I not like a setting where the boarding weapon of choice is the battle axe? Anyway, I highly recommend the show for those who haven't seen it yet (there's a petition to bring it over to the US at: http://www.gineigoods.com/form/ . Also, any thoughts or comments from fellow LotGH fans?

R.I.P Richard Matheson
taksraven posted a topic in Anime or Science FictionFarewell to Richard Matheson. A fantastic Sci-Fi author. His stories have been the inspiration for some great (and yes, some not so great) interpretations on the big and small screen. I love his work and style and he will be missed.... Dark Horizons article on his death.
