Let's pretend there was an /a/ back in the Nineties. I'll start.
Why haven't you dropped Evanjellydonut?
Shit sentaishit mahou shoujo is shit, give me Minky Momo any day.
Tomino will never do us wrong! Gundam will never flop, especially 35 years down the line!
Do you bakas remember this?
>Char ripoff #2, Bajeena edition
>implying there will ever be a golden age of Gundam
Gundam Wing has been infested by yaoi fangirls, there will never be anything like the Char's Counterattack era.
>Eighties master race

On a serious note, having lived through the days of RealPlayer, I can't bring myself to hate VLC like /a/ likes to do. No, I don't use VLC because there are plenty of other programs that do the same job and better and consume far less resources.
But still, at least VLC will PLAY a file reliably.
Hey, you guys seen this Captain Tylor? He's one cool guy.
I believe you.
Posting best elf. Deedo a shit.
>Let's pretend there was an /a/ back in the Nineties.
Sailor Moon, Slayers, Escaflowne and CardCaptor Sakura are great.
All anyone is talking about is Eva and Cowboy Bebop.
I would have loved to have had /a/ back in the 90s. Especially to watch Utena with. And to see the bricks shat near the end. Particularly after episode 33.
>Usagi in front of a Gundam
Complete polar opposites.
Tomino will have one more triumph with Gundam at the end of the 90s. Then the franchise will never again do anything worthwhile.
Well, she IS part of the glorious Moonrace.
Oh man, Gainax is the best studio ever!
Their star is rising and it's never gonna stop!
They're the only studio who won't stoop to making pointless ecchi shows. I know Anno will never let that happen.
Anno-sama is so great. He's made so many great hits. If he'll just keep making such great, original works, he'll be the next Tezuka.
Don't spoil me -- my fansub tapes are being mailed from Tomodachi this weekend.
Correction -- my SVHS Master tapes. You plebes still using the yellow jack can just drool while I experience my goddess in 400 lines of resolution.
Who the fuck thought it would be a good idea to let Oshii off his leash for Patlabor 2? Where's my cute cops doing cute things?
>the MC of this series was a nigger all along
Feels good to be laser disc master race.
>implying anime can ever surpass this masterpiece
Fuck everything in the future.
>betamax was so beta to the max VHS took over
History of Cuckolding
>Did something wrong
You're shitting me, right?
Because it brought DVD-quality picture to households 20 years early, that's why.
And future generations will be laughing at how people were using BDs and DVDs in your generation, youngin.
Man, Naga is such a stereotype. I don't think any anime girl will ever have bigger boobs.
Her sister is superior.
Is this for real? It's not big. It fits right in with the rest of my music.
Short answer, video quality. It was FAR better video quality than VHS or even BETAmax.
The drawbacks weren't the physical size. They were that each side of the disc only held 30 minutes worth of video, so a two-hour movie meant two discs and you had to stop and flip the disc or swap discs every 30 minutes. Of course this runtime worked great with episodic media like anime.
Also, the cost. My LD player than I bought in 1991 cost about 800 bucks. And that was a bargain. That's the equivalent to almost 1500 bucks today.
Because it was the first video based disk system. Its like asking why anyone would ever use huge 32mm film when VHS exists. Because 32mm film existed 50 years before VHS.
By comparison, the transition from Laserdisk to DVD was ridiculously fast.
DVD was ridiculously cheap(comparatively), held far more data and time, and began the revolution of having a menu for special features, multiple audio tracks, optional subtitles, chapter selection, bonus features like behind-the-scenes of making-of featurettes. Not to mention previews that you didn't HAVE to watch first.
Sakura is both the best loli and best mahou shoujo, prove me wrong faggots!
Meiling a shit
Kid's React to... Technology!
This episode... Laser Discs!
>Not to mention previews that you didn't HAVE to watch first.
Clearly you never watched a Disney DVD.
>hit main menu
>"The option you have selected cannot be chosen at this time."
It also happened on tons of anime DVDs. Fuck ADV.
That was my point. That DVD could do everything LD did and better, cheaper, faster and smaller.
Eh, by the time they came out on video, the previews were all outdated.
Especially the ones advertising "Coming soon to theaters!"
I miss them too. Honey I Shrunk the Kids just isn't the same without that damn Dick Tracy trailer.
