Oh, Rick, how cool! You (almost) convinced me to watch Battle of the Planets.Greetings!
ALMOST???What would it take to convince you?
I laughed so much when I read this! Thanks so much for entering our contest, and with so clever a spin!(Confession: I have never seen Battle of the Planets. Eep.)
I feel I should add that this post is completely true. I was totally obsessed with BOTP when I was in grade school and I did draw the Phoenix (that's the ship that G-Force travels in) ALL THE TIME and I did like to pretend I was one of them. It was the first time I was exposed to anime, though far from the last. My handwriting, however, was a little bit better than this in third grade.So glad that this made you laugh!
Battle of the Planets (Science Ninja Team Gatchaman) was my introduction to the wacky world of anime. When I observed the character design of other shows like Star Blazers (Space Battleship Yamato) and Robotech (Super Dimension Fortress Macross), I thought, "Hmm... I'm beginning to see a pattern here.Since then, I've been cursed with the brand of otaku. In the past year, I have subjected myself (and my wife Suze) to viewings of Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Full Metal Alchemist, Appleseed XIII and Ah! My Goddess. Curse you BotP! I also make a point of having an annual viewing of Megazone 23 around Christmastime with Suze and a couple of friends. You're more than welcome to come by and it doesn't have to be in the dead of winter! BIRD, GO!- John Baker
