I’ve got mine

Koji Shima’s WARNING FROM SPACE — the first Japanese sci-fi film made in colour — just came through my letterbox courtesy of Arrow. As I was just mentioning, I’m author of a booklet essay on the “wonderfully nerdy” subject of the film’s dubbing, which I was able to complete with the help of Arianne Ulmer and Japa Fett and with reference to Steve Ryfle’s exhaustive book Japan’s Favorite Mon-Star. Thanks to James Flower for his decisive assistance as editor.

I’m back teaching next week, so this has been a light week for blog posts as I get ready to deliver our course ONLINE — the University of Edinburgh and Edinburgh College of Art have some quaint idea about not killing all their students and staff, for which I am grateful.
