William Chow's vodcast series, History of Fan Anime in North America

The roughly mid-90's and earlier (generally pre-Toonami, pre-anime boom) era of anime & manga fandom: early cons, clubs, tape trading, Nth Generation VHS fansubs, old magazines & fanzines, fandubs, ancient merchandise, rec.arts.anime, and more!

Does he talk about all the drama he put into his subtitles ever? I'll watch over these at some point I guess... this guy is pretty hard core to say the least.

This is impressive even now. Regardless of your feelings about Robotech, I'd recommend taking a look at this video.
