Re: How many of us kept their old collections?

Since my last visit I've been working a lot on transferring as many of the Toei shows as possible albeit only some of what I have can be tracked at all on tapes more than 30 years old. But if the audio can be salvaged, I guess it's worth it. But it's a lot of tapes to sort through. Only about 1 in 3...

Re: How many of us kept their old collections?

Well, there are the fans looking for broadcast audio of their fave shows, especially Toei produced ones since they dumped the master audio of all but a handful of their productions (mostly movies) prior to 1996. So, OTA recordings of those shows are in high demand just for the audio alone which (eve...

How many of us kept their old collections?

Now, with everyone trying to restore lost audio or find one of a kind showings of material or interviews with creators who may now be dead, how many of us that had Japanese pen pals back in the day kept what said friends recorded and sent to us? I'm finding out not many did owing to the sheer bulk o...

Re: Sega Saturn Love

I have a lot of old Dreamcast parts since the arcade (now gone, alas) used Dreamcasts in many knock off cases for many old arcade games. My bud (who passed away a few years back) gave me a big box full of parts. I have a working Dreamcast, controllers, light guns, keyboard, etc. just sitting here co...

Re: All Your Cels Belong to Japan

...and to think I could have had original Jack Kirby artwork from his inker Mike Royer back in 1980 if i had but given up my old VHS tapes of Dr. Who. But who knew the series would become as popular as it did? Not me. At the time, the show aired only once and the episodes I had from Canadian airings...

Re: All Your Cels Belong to Japan

^ I don't think they're interested in buying signed goods. What they want is the primo stuff, like really nice hanken cels (artwork used for VHS/DVD covers and other commercial goods), complete key set-ups with matching backgrounds and fully colored, hand drawn sketches. They want the Ghibli and Ev...

Re: All Your Cels Belong to Japan

Sorry, not selling my signed, limited edition Shigeru Mizuki English language book back to the Japanese. That was given to me as a gift from both Mizuki and Yoshihiro Yonezawa who was attending the same convention...

Re: KIKU's "Hawaii subs"

Just noticed (via posted YouTube videos) that the TV version of Zatoichi was also subbed. It's a good series and very much in keeping with the spirit of the films. It also stars Shintaro Katsu who played Ichi in the films...

Re: Relating to younger fans...

re: older fans. There are a few of us older scfi, comic and media fans but no formal group was ever formed. We all know each other anyway. I drop in to see people almost every week so we keep in touch a lot. But I've lost track of a lot of people outside this area especially after my mother passed a...
