Re: The first instance of sharing anime online

Speaking of which, what was the last Laserdisc anime you remember to be released? Or the first series to be distributed on CD/DVD? That applied to both Japan and America.

Akira Production Report (1988)

Probably one of the best documentaries on the production of an anime. It used to be fully viewable on YouTube but the full versions have been copyright-claimed by Kadokawa, presumably because the clips of the film trigger it. There are two videos available on YouTube, there' the 18-minute segment wi...
