Happy National VCR Day--show off some VHS!

All my VHS are in my parents' house, so...

I guess the next time I go back to visit I'll take a few pictures. That could be over a month from now though. :|

Man... I do not feel like going through two boxes of tapes and taking all my stuff out for photo purposes, and what I have currently in my room is a handful sitting on different shelves, and the second Gundam movie on VHS (from Bandai with Steve Blum as Char) is sitting on my PC tower at the moment, under my Initial D and Gundam Side Stories PS3 games.

I will have to dig my 3x3 eyes of storage to upload a pic. My only true VHS treasure. I sold my entire collection because of job loss and opted to collect DVD's. My collection now is bigger and a lot better. However, I never did replace my Slayers VHS collection, but that is the only thing I do miss of my VHS collection.

Wow. I really missed out.

I had no idea there even was a National VCR Day.

Admittedly, I don't have much to show off... Barefoot Gen, the Toei Little Mermaid, episodes of Robotech, Macron 1, Sherlock Hound... Plus several other odds and ends.

I too have a Macron 1 VHS tape, although im not sure how many they put out, and there isn't any specific episode number to them in what order they should be watched.

The one I have is called "Dark Discovery in a New World" and features the first two episodes. Well, the first episode definitely.

There were about five tapes released. Some copies have two episodes, some have five. They never released enough tapes to get to the Srungle episodes...

The only tapes of mine not rotted and discarded are some SVHS I used for LD dupes late in my fanclub years. I also saved this EMOTION Anniversary box and my first purchase (Sentinels from unholy HG's mail order).

Jesus Christ... How could I have forgotten to mention The Brave Frog, the crown jewel of my anime VHS collection?

Maybe this weekend I'll get my tapes out and post a picture of them here.
