Golden Ani-Versary: 1998 Is Now Online!

The cast of Cowboy BebopHey folks, just a little reminder that my 1998 article for Geoff Tebbetts’s Golden Ani-Versary of Anime — a fifty-year blog retrospective of televised anime — is now online. In the piece, I discuss both the rise of “Cool Japan” and the problems that would later invalidate the concept, touching on classic series like Cowboy Bebop, Outlaw Star, Trigun, Serial Experiments Lain, and Cardcaptor Sakura. Check it out, and while you’re there I highly recommend you read the rest of the excellent articles on the blog, written by awesome bloggers and podcasters like Dave Merrill, Mike Toole, and Daryl Surat!
