Introductions

Postby Neko » Sat Jul 12, 2014 7:34 pm

Hello everyone!

Neko here. I'm a relative newcomer to anime, at least the TV shows, But I have followed some anime feature films, the usual Miyazaki fare, Akira and a couple others. I've also been a Kaiju Otaku for more years than I care to mention. I have the strong suspicion I am the old guy here, call me Ojisan. :shock:


Along with, or perhaps because of my love of Japanese Tokusatsu (特撮), I have since an early age had a love of puppets and puppetry. In fact, in an earlier life, I had the great honor to work with Tagawa Michiko, one of the first women to be allowed to apprentice as a Bunraku puppeteer. In this earlier life I got to work onsome cool movies that you guys probably enjoyed as kids.

Please don't kick me out for being an old man, I still have a ton of enthusiasm for the wonderful work that is being done in animation, and I am really thrilled to see the amazing work coming out of Japan!
