So I'm a little late to celebrate the 6th year this sites been active, and also a little late to celebrate Bubblegum Crisis 30th Anniversary back in February. Well needless to say, stuff has been going on this semester at school and I've been busy, but at least its better to be late than never. So this little treat is another one of my many Bubblegum Crisis artbooks that I've been able to collect over the years. This was something that I purchased on ebay in 2010 for a fistful of dollars, and I gotta say it ain't bad at all. This is a book that took what studio ARTMIC worked on for the first OVA and made something nice for the fans. There is also interviews in the back and a few images of what studio ARTMIC looked like, even a glass case full of G1 Transformer toys! It's neat stuff like that is what adds to owning artbooks like this to know more about the studio behind your favorite anime. So give it a read and enjoy!

Evidence #31 - Animage 26th Anniversary Poker Cards

Smaller cons can sometimes grant you access to things that you wouldn't find at most popular cons. I was recently at a con held in a little town in South Carolina, and one dealer in particular that sold comics had my interest while I was there. I came across this artifact that I know for sure came from a previous owners collection that I used to buy from before he passed away a few years back. So now that it's in my collection, what better way to use it than to scan it and show it off to the world.

There's no need for this to be a .pdf this time, since its only a few photos. It seems that every mini card has an issue of Animage going back as early as the 80's, so this is something that I can assume was added into an issue for its 26th anniversary release. There is even a section made to punch out to hold all of these little cards in. The thing is, I wont do that, since this is too darn unique to disassemble. So it will remain in my collection for a while, or if someone out there really wants it I might be willing to part with it. But I figured this little mini-post is a good way to reign in the new year of 2017, until a post comes out for the 6th anniversary in a couple of months (if I remember to do something by then at least). So take care everyone and enjoy what 2017 has to offer.
