Anime North And What We Did When We Got There



Anime North's 2012 Hell went off with nary a hitch and not a hiccup as we THREW DOWN two solid hours of THINGS up on the FOUR MASSIVE SCREENS of the Plaza Ballroom in the good ol' Doubletree. Here's what we showed:
A little bit of AACHI + SSIPAK
J-POP AMERICA FUNTIME NOW with extra CANDY CANDY
the famous underwater dance sequence from 30,000 MILES UNDER THE SEA
a preteen shootout from THE RETURN OF PERO
a disturbing Freudian image from KENYA BOY
images from various SPACE BATTLESHIP YAMATO updates and remakes and breakdancing
HEIDI and EVANGELION rendered in the medium of live comedy actors
CYBORG 009 from clunky black and white to clunky CG
a bunch of ADS, fake and real
DR TRAN letters


(crowds got blurry as the night went on)

ROBOT KING starring ROBOT KING himself, Mike Toole
a story from North America about THE SPIDER
Hertzfeld's LA AMOUR
PANTSU-MAN
DR TRAN's pal HOTEL SOAP
SCHOOL ADVISOR MR. YAMAOKA
POP
a Japanese TV gag involving curling
how they dub HART TO HART in Japanese
SPIDERMAN LOVES BANANAS
more ads including GOLGO 13 selling fishing line and PEKO-CHAN
OUT OF SIGHT



PONYO IS ON A BOAT
more ads including the famous Star Wars tuna ad, NISSIN instant ramen, Star Of The Giants for KIRIN, and Tomorrow's Joe ramen
Hertzfeld's WISDOM TEETH
Porky breakdown.  Son of a bi-bi-bi-

As a special intermission treat we screened a very special moment from the fourth VIFAM OVA and the trailer for the second volume of YAMATO 2199.  And then it was time for the 2010 SPACE BATTLESHIP YAMATO film, which lasted until 2:30 am and did not quite achieve the room-filling glory of Anime Hell. But it is a pretty long movie, and it was very late at night. See you next year!

Crowds always seem to get blurry as the show goes on. But I think I get blurrier.
