AWA 2012 Hell post mortem

Here's what was shown last Friday night at AWA.  It was kind of a special Anime Hell; I went back into the mists of Hell Time and dredged up some old favorites from both the early Dragoncon all-night marathons and the more programmed events that followed. Finding a lot of the earlier clips was tough; some of the material didn't make the transition from VHS to DVD to digital file and casting around for it is a chore. The audience seemed to appreciate the older material; I tried to pick stuff that the audience liked and I felt was funny and representative of the older shows. Tons of stuff did NOT make the cut; looking back over the playlists it's shocking what I put out there to bore the audience with.  As old as some of the material got, most of it delivered laughs. It's always somebody's first Anime Hell.

FRANKENSTEIN’S KUNG FU MONSTER will not be seen tonight so that we may bring you this special presentation.
