Re: What are you Watching?

I dig Iria, but mostly for being just a good action anime, the action scenes really are well executed. Explosions, smoke, gunplay, hand to hand combat are crisp and mostly all on point. The story and plotting is OK, but mostly serves to move the action along. Just finished Iria tonight and I would ...

Re: Where Are They Now: Todd Allis of Japanimation USA

Remind me again - was Japanimation USA a convention? A club? A store?

I read through Todd's old website - I wonder if that Google Anime Club still meets?

Re: WTB/WTT: VHS Fansubs

Well, nostalgia is certainly a factor for me, I always wanted more fansubs growing up but alas was too poor, so now I'm kind of reliving those days. But also yes to digitally preserve titles as well. I'm in contact with a 74 year old man who has Dr. Slump recordings from the Hawaii channel Pearl an...

Re: annoying tales of anime fandom

Haha, I've watched bits and pieces of those VCDs but I'm sure I've never watched all of them completely. But yeah, it's easily over 200 VCDs. Guess it's better than having everything on tape as far as space is concerned though. There was a point in time where yeah, hauling a VCR and some tapes for a...

Re: The "Check this item out on eBay" Thread

YEAH the anime VHS market is kinda nuts right now. Even more nuts is the vintage anime T-shirt market--I've seen some people trying to sell old anime shirts for $1,000?!? If people are actually paying that much for them, I regret getting rid of some of my old t-shirts back in the day, lmao. Yeah, I...

Re: annoying tales of anime fandom

This was a ton of fun to read through. Distributing tapes only on the Internet in the late 90s, I spared my parents the grief of random collect calls or myself getting tons of random letters from strangers in the post. Of course, I also missed out on having physical copies of others' tape lists. Sti...

Re: Prominance of Beta in Anime Tape Trading

I know anecdote doesn't equal data, but my experience was when video rentals became a thing, for whatever reason VHS outnumbered Beta like, 10 to 1. If a video rental shop happened to have Beta tapes, they would be all on one shelf tucked way over to the side, while the vast majority of rentals wer...

Re: WTB/WTT: VHS Fansubs

I'm curious, as I have seen quite a few people interested in just collecting old fansub tapes, what's the appeal? What do you do with them? I get maybe trying to preserve or cataloging them for history, or hunting down very rare properties, but just buying them to keep them on a shelf?

Re: The "Check this item out on eBay" Thread

Been a while since I've been looking around at anime stuff but I'm back on my "I should sell some stuff" BS again... I found this the other day in a Facebook group; I'll try to share the link but it may be off-limits if you're not in the group, definitely if you're off Facebook. But jeeze ...
