Re: Nikaku Animart (Contains Large images)

Urusei Yatsura Box Set, TV Series (50 discs) .................. 4,125.00 Wow, that's the record retail price I've come across for the UY LD50 import box. A contemporary Laser Perceptions ad had it around $3700. It's no wonder that monster set took on a sort of totemic significance as an ultimate re...

Harmony Gold Relicenses Macross

Bad news for those hoping to ever see Macross properties released here: https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2019-07-05/harmony-gold-renews-license-to-1st-macross-southern-cross-mospeada-anime-series/.148700 I find stuff like this oddly fascinating. Harmony Gold's shady real estate holdings finance...

Re: Anyone want to Compare LDs?

Hi Moonsaber. Though not affiliated with the TechnoGirls, a download of their fansub was indeed my introduction to Oniisama e (an nth gen VHS rip with lots of noise). I posted awhile back about how the TechnoGirls apparently finished their fansub in fairly recent times, even after both an official s...

Re: Anyone want to Compare LDs?

This is from memory - I have many more in several milk crates and record boxes to be added. The Maison Ikkoku LD24, Dirty Pair box, 2 of 3 GE999 TV boxes, and Ghibli Ga Ippai boxes are a few highlights. Gatchaman complete TV series box is huge, with great original art on each sleeve. Also have the O...

Re: Collecting anime film prints - Starzan!

Great thread. Now if only we can find someone who has a 35mm theatrical print of Project A-Ko Thanks! Man, I would kill for an A-Ko print as well: I have fond memories of watching it back on the Sci-Fi Channel's Saturday Anime block. Made some progress acquiring equipment to work with my Grave prin...

Re: Collecting anime film prints - Starzan!

Yeah, I was really surprised when it appeared and for a price I didn't have to think about. Nice unfaded color, as it had to be struck some time in probably the mid 90s (guessing) and film stock by that point had the chemistry worked out so it won't fade to red. Very bulky! The 9 reels of film weigh...

Re: Collecting anime film prints - Starzan!

Here's another piece of anime film history that I can't believe I now have - a 35mm print of Grave of the Fireflies! 35mm theatrical anime prints are nearly impossible to come across, let alone Ghibli stuff, and when this surfaced I had to have it. I got it from a guy in Russia for a great price - f...

Re: Collecting anime film prints - Starzan!

Some additional info - I just won the episode 34 print and these prints appear to have been stuck in 1991 based on the Imagica lab label, so there's another piece in the Starzan puzzle.

Re: Collecting anime film prints - Starzan!

Dave, your Starzan article is a very interesting treatment of the space "King of the Jungle" and that background made this print even cooler. The mystery of what plans these prints were attached to is deep - seemingly more than just a US representative shopping the show around, as the episode number...

Re: Collecting anime film prints - Starzan!

DKop, have you seen this 16mm episode somebody transferred onto Youtube? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRJNxiclLY8 I think they took a video of a projected screen, with a telecine or scanner it would be a bit less washed out etc. (but it's still the best clip on YT from that rare show and looks pr...
