Re: What did old-school fans think about digital fansubs?

While tapes did degrade, it was MUCH more common to see the degrading of copy of a copy of a copy (etc) than a tape 'wearing down'.
Then again, you couldn't do much about tapes degrading... and if you had copies of a copy of a copy...it was likely the best that you could get of that show.

Re: They Were Eleven query

Reasonable, especially with the issue back in the day with 'Four Shoujo Stories'. I wonder how the new translation will compare to the VIZ one that I have.

They Were Eleven query

As previously discussed here ( https://www.oldschoolotaku.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=18163&hilit=eleven#p18163 ) around April of 2021 'They Were Eleven' was licensed (both the original which I have and the sequel). As I mentioned here ( https://www.oldschoolotaku.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=19066&a...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel delayed to Dec '18

I liked the Battle Angel / Gunnm manga a lot. I liked the Last Orders quite a bit, got them as soon as they came out domestically and read them the day of. The most recent series... as the gap in months became longer I just.... decided that it would never actually conclude or wrap up =/ Let me check...

Re: Anyone here read American or European comics?

Heh. In the last six years I got all of the Valerian collections. Some are definitely better than others, but I am quite fond of it. I prefer even my least favourite comic to the movie... it was not bad, but... all I can say is that it was not bad. I do think (as some fans said at the time) that one...

Re: ANN article on Classic Shoujo I'd love to see get licensed

I am reminded of the 'They Were Eleven" manga that I ordered on Amazon about two years ago for release last year... every three or four months I get an e-mail detailing how it has been delayed a few more months. Currently due (checks) June 25th, 2024.

Eras of Anime

I remember our discussion here on old school, new school, middle school...but while I was out for a walk, I stumbled across an article today that mentioned 'classic' and 'modern' titles.... and found it amusing that the 'classic' is from 1995, and the 'modern' is from 2006. So, clearly, something ab...
