For those of you that went to anime conventions back in the late 90's/early 2000's anyone remember that music video someone did for Project A-Ko that used The Offspring's "Come Out and Play"?

Anyone have the Project A-Ko art book?

Back in the fall of '94, as a class project for senior-year AP U.S. Government, two friends and I were assigned to create a video demonstrating some mechanic of how government works, and we used that Offspring song in our video on Separation of Powers/Checks and Balances.

So Lionel Horsepackage, what did you get for your grade for that project?

Does anyone have the Project A-Ko art book?

Looks like there are a few on eBay if you're looking to buy or see what it looks like.

I missed my chance to get it back in the day but the price would be much higher now and I just don't have the money to spend on stuff like that anymore. Though this is the Project A-Ko section then if someone had it, they could post the cover art and a few other pics would be nice. Plus I am curious if anyone on the site actually owns it.

From what I remember, I think we ended up doing pretty well -- the video was a big hit with the students when we finally played it, too.

Well sounds like you and your classmates had fun.

I wish there were more reaction videos on youtube for this movie. Maybe there will be more when the blu-ray comes out.

This is one of the very first licensed anime that was released for North America by US Manga Corps, and one of my favorites. I noticed, right off the back, that it was a parody of Superman. Ako's parents are pseudo Clark Kent and Lois Lane.

I thought they were Superman and Wonder Woman...

Does anyone know what exactly the special features are and if it's 1 or 2 discs? Justin said this release was going to be loaded and I see listings for both 1.33 and 1.78 ratios. I don't think haven't announced the full list of features as RightStuff's listing doesn't say very much.

I haven’t seen a full list, but this from August should be most of it. All on 1 disc too. I’m guessing we might get a full rundown on the Discotek stream on the 13th. https://twitter.com/discotekmedia/st...36183420837892

The more I see it, the more I dislike the cover art. Guess I'll put the disc in the DVD release.

Oh come on. It's not that bad.
It'll be on your shelf most of the time out of your eye's view. Just go with it.

In an era of awful cover art, I find this really funny. The characters are essentially spot-on and stylistically in-character too. It's fantastic.

FWIW the original cover art will be available on the reverse side if it’s really that big of a deal.

It's not that big a deal, but I'll probably reverse it to the original cover.

The new cover is not that bad, but I do love the original cover art.
