Protoculture Addicts

Starting as a fanzine dedicated to Robotech and soon morphing into the first commercial anime magazine in North America, this Canadian publication began in 1987.  In 2005 it was bought out by the Anime News Network, which continued to publish it until its final issue (#97, July/August 2008.)

  1. Protoculture Addicts 023 (May-June 1993)

    This issue reminds me that I really need to get around to reading Kimagure Orange Road.  Back around the time this issue was published, the TV series hadn't yet been translated into English, but AnimEigo had released several volumes of the OAV series.  My local video store had a couple of them, and I liked them quite a bit.  I'd always wanted to read the manga, but this was before the Internet, so fan translations weren't a thing you could come by.  It's never been officially translated to my knowledge, but you can find it in English easily enough nowadays.  I've actually got the first volume in Japanese sitting in my closet, which was supposed to inspire me to use it to study Japanese, but it turns out I'm far too lazy to put that much effort into reading a comic LOL.

    The cover is by Robert DeJesus, who some of you non-comics fans may know as the designer/artist of Banzi Chibi-chan, the sort-of-mascot character in early issues of PSM.

    More black and white goodness from the early days of anime fandom.  This issue has a heavy emphasis on the releases of Streamline Pictures.
