When's the last time you watched an Anime on VHS /a/?

Where is your VCR right now?
>>

>Where is your VCR right now?
In the landfill, probably.
It's a shame, I kinda want to play around with one again, and digitize shit.
>>
Rewatched my Rayearth bootlegs a few weeks ago. And my VCR is under my BVM, not hooked up though because I'm moving a ton of stuff around.
>>
I've had both seasons of Grander Musashi on VHS that I must've watched at least 10 times through. My VCR is under my bed.
>>
What's a vcr and vhs? That antiquated technology has been gone from my life since 2000.
>>
>>145694288

Digitize while you still can. VHS tapes are still slowly demagnetizing, so unless you want to record over the exact same shows to preserve them they should die eventually.

Who would have thought laserdisc would outlast VHS.

Anyone know what Anime exist on Laserdisc with Subtitles? I'm sure the list is short, but it would be fun to watch something like this in 2016.

The only anime I've seen on VHS was my older brother's copy of Akira.

Does Robotech count?

Probably not, Laser disc was short lived and I only ever remember seeing it in my school

It actually laser in Japan until 2000 or so.

Everyone I knew used VHS

Japan loves to use tech for a good period of time.

>>145695822
I left mine at my parents a couple years back. Originally I bought Urotsukidoji on LD (thinking it was a DVD), and then bought the actual player afterwards so I could watch it. I should probably get rid of the disc next time I go back to prevent any weird questions....

I don't know, I got my first DVD player in 2000 so maybe a year or two after that? Pretty sure I was downloading my fansubs by that point, but the early aughts are kind of a blur.

I'm this close to ordering a working laserdisc off eBay I swear. There isn't s specific model I should get right? I know the later ones used some weird combing filters to supposedly get better picture that can go for thousands.
>>
>>145694094
The other day when I was moving boxes around into my new house, I came across my old copies of the original U.S.Rendition releases of Gunbuster.
Too bad I don't have a VCR anymore.

I also still own a pretty extensive collection of Kurosawa films on LDs.

Yes I oldfag.

You know, I'm not sure. I don't have a mean to revisit it either.
I imagine it's cut out of all US releases, and only found on the original Japanese VHS release.
>>
>>145696587

How was that done back then? KAzaa? Napster? IRC? I don't remember. All I remember is using anipike to find random DBZ stuff.

I distinctly remember being able to rent this from blockbuster. It goes for over $100 now though. I keep hoping I'm going to find a bunch mixed in with Vinyl records, but I never do.
>>
>>145694423

There was a time where you had to pay $45 for two episodes of Evangelion.
>>
>>145697063
IRC was pretty big as a primary source. For trading files Direct Connect was best if you had a big collection and a good enough connection to get into a good community. Napster was pretty much all MP3, but Kazaa and the various gnutella clients followed it pretty quickly and you could find just about anything on them if you were willing to wait long enough. Bittorrent also took off relatively quickly when it came to anime distribution and was in use in the early 2000s.

I like those badges. What are they from?

>>145698939

Otaku No Video. I got them from contributing to Animeigo's Kickstarter for the US BD release.
>>
>>145699023

Lucky. I would have loved to donate to that. Was there a thread on /a/? Why did I never hear about this?
>>
>>145699134

No clue. I don't browse here very much. It just ended a few months ago. I only found out about it because I went to their site to try to buy the DVD, but I ended up donating to that so I could get the BD instead.

What part of the country do I have to live in where I can casually buy up anime on VHS like this?
>>
>>145699702
Ohio. Interestingly the End of Eva tape is a promotional screening copy. Aside from the amusing blurbs on the back it also warns you that it's for screening purposes only every few minutes.

I have a VCR-DVDR combo that might still work, maybe.

WHY. Why Censor that one movie?

Only the 2012 blu ray is censored. They just released a new uncensored blu ray this year.

I have this image of you alone in a room watching Pokemon the movie on VHS & in the rain. You're there eating stale ritz crackers because that's all they had in the cupboard.

It was popular with home theater geeks. A friend of mine pulled out his old laserdisk player recently to watch un-special Star Wars on his DLP projector

Is it on Nyaa or bakabt or something? English release or Japan only? I need answers here.

They call that "Normal" anon, normal. It's the normal version of the movie. That or the "original" release version.

Talk about the first time you watched anime on VHS & how horrible it was.
