Thanks to everyone who came to my panel at CasaCon 2022 today! The con continues on Discord tomorrow and Sunday, and you can still register for free via Eventbrite.
I wanted to share the two videos that I played in my talk: the first, the dubbed opening of Astro Boy (the first comment is from someone who sang in the chorus for the song!); and the second, the footage from the 1982 meeting of the C/FO Los Angeles chapter. You can also read the article I wrote about early anime and manga fandom (in which I mistook Sandy, the Orange County C/FO chapter mascot, for Fanta, the LA C/FO chapter mascot. Whoops).
