Re: The format which anime was brought from Japan to America

No Thank you so much for that information. I am interested in the fact that your club used Laserdisc - wasn't it only a hit in Japan? Was it available widely, and was it expensive to other format at the time? I believe it was mostly used here by early hardcore home cinema enthusiasts back then. But ...

Re: The format which anime was brought from Japan to America

Terribly sorry for the triple post, we could really use an edit button. Anyway, I just saw the price tag on the adverts on the page I linked to. Now that must have been quite the investment back then! Here's another site with better pictures of the device itself along with manuals: https://www.bigbo...

And in case it I didn't make this timing thing clear, the device was in turn feeding this combined picture into a projector. So it was always happening live as there was once again no permanent edit.

Re: The format which anime was brought from Japan to America

Wow, that was really interesting. Could you tell me more about this? Like which kind of computer was the device hooked to? Unfortunately this was well before my time, so I don't know much. They used an Amiga as well, much like Dave suggests to be the common way to do it. There's actually a recent v...

Re: Nothing of Consequence

From my perspective, there is actually really is going to be someone with the biggest (but not necessarily the greatest) collection out there making themselves known or not. But I don't think that necessarily makes them the biggest fan. Neither does having watched it the most amount of times. Who kn...

Re: The format which anime was brought from Japan to America

The circle/club I'm going to used to use a device to combine the video and subtitles and output them together without recording to VHS first. This would preserve the LD quality when they had one os those, but required timing to start both simultaneously.

Re: Hi Everybody

I have yet to read the KOR manga, but it's also on my list. I couldn't say which one is the best to start out with. I have studied Japanese at the university for a bit, though it wasn't my main thing. And I agree on the translation. I even boycotted manga and anime for about five years previously be...

Re: Hi Everybody

Hi and welcome! I like this genre as well, though I haven't seen a whole lot. Partially because I don't pick much on my own these days (I go to four hours long weekly anime screenings of various themes and for me that's usually enough). I haven't gotten around to Maison Ikkoku yet, but I definitely ...

Re: Should I tear out my magazine posters?

In addition to that, avoid blu tack and tape.
