Anonymous asked: I find it very strange that you didn't refer to any of Koji Morimoto's personal works such as Ken Ishii EXTRA, or Dimension Bomb or Animatrix Beyond. Those where the works where he could truly express himself. During the 80s he didn't have much control.

Hi Anonymous! My podcast and blog are called Anime Nostalgia because I like to focus on older anime, so of course my highlights of favorite anime creators tend to be on older from the 80s and 90s. The blurbs I write for each are nowhere near extensive, and are meant to just be something fun and informative for followers. It’s my hope that people use those as jumping off points to learn more about those people, so if there are followers out there who haven’t seen any of the works of his you mentioned, but are familiar with Morimoto’s work on other people’s properties, I definitely urge them to look into it!

Head’s up!

If you’ve been meaning to pick up Sentai’s complete Gatchaman series, Best Buy has it on sale at the moment for $60—that’s $70 off the retail price! (They have lots of anime on sale right now as well, so check it out!)

The opening animation for Dirty Pair: Project Eden (1986) is one of my favorite two minutes of animation at the moment. And according to ANN its by Koji Morimoto, who founded Studio 4°C and has worked on some of my other favorite animated films! 

Favorite Anime Creators: Koji Morimoto [ 森本晃司 ]
Best known for his work as one of the chief animators of Akira and the director of Satoshi Kon’s Magnetic Rose short, Koji Morimoto is both an incredibly talented animator as well as director. His distinct (sometimes described “experimental”) style of animation can be seen in everything from the infamous Dirty Pair: Project Eden opening, key animation in Space Adventure Cobra, the concert scenes in Macross Plus, and even various opening themes to City Hunter. (You can also see his less experimental animation work in films like Kiki’s Delivery Service and The Fantastic Adventures of Unico.) He’s worked on Katsuhiro Otomo’s projects multiple times—not just Akira and Memories, but also Neo-Tokyo and Robot Carnival shorts, respectively.
One of the founders of Studio 4C, Morimoto left to form team Orphy in hopes to pursue more experimental projects. His unique style and vision also landed him work on everything from music videos for Japanese popstars like Ayumi Hamasaki and Utada Hikaru, to animating cut-scenes in 2011’s video game Catherine. He is still working today; recently he worked on another project of Otomo’s: animating the opening to his latest anime anthology, Short Peace.

The Anime Nostalgia Podcast ep 13 

A short, ReView episode this time around! What is a “ReView” episode, you might ask? Well, it’s my highly-clever (ok not really) title for episodes where I go back and watch an older title I haven’t seen in a long time, and see if what I remember (and what my opinions on it) are still the same now that time’s gone by and I’m a little older.
To celebrate Oh My Goddess!'s manga finally ending in Japan after a whopping 25-year run, I look back on the series' very first anime adaptation, the Oh My Goddess! OVA from 1993.
