Re: let's anime looks at anime info packets

Some of Sue Shambaugh's translations would be included in these info packets from time to time. Pretty much anything anime-related that could be photocopied might be included in one of these packets.

Re: 1989 Harmony Gold dub of Dragon Ball Search

at some point I'll get around to ripping those ads, sure. In the meantime there are several sets of 80s ad breaks I ripped and posted to the Mister Kitty YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/MisterKittyTV/videos

Re: 1989 Harmony Gold dub of Dragon Ball Search

hey Tom_Servo, didn't we talk on the Anime Hell Facebook group? I have two tapes full of Speed Racer taped off Philly 57, those commercial bumpers are pretty distinctive.

Re: Japanimation Association of Michigan?

The remaining stock of bootleg anime VHS tapes can still be found in the dusty corners of comic book shops and used bookstores, sometimes. And thrift stores, for that matter.
