>I am very old-fashioned. I have my own library of anime VHS tapes, and my audio tapes. It is very ungrateful people throwing them away just because "UH. A CD quality. Great. Now I can trash my other stuff." How would you feel if your girls switched you for a better "quality" guy?
>Hey, VHS and audio tapes were the future back there. I still found those objects more the treasures, specially in how the were created. Quality is not everything you know, but rather the existence. I have my tape of the anime Metropolis and the DVD too.
>Ok, I may be a collector, but I really hate how people talk about those "Ancient" items like they are trash. They should be treasured as they were the fathers and grandfathers of CDs and DVDs. Sadly, they do not sale VHS tapes here anymore. It stopped in 2006. I always went in looking for the tapes of the movies I wanted.
>I couldn't afford a DVD player also at the time. But I still see my dear VHS tapes in my tape recorder. Specially the anime I recorded from TV.
>You see, these items have so much importance to me, because I grew with them. Almost every year I spent a month or 3 re-watching my tapes.
>Some much good memories come together with those tapes of the time those cartoons were broadcasted in TV and how was my life in that time.

Are any of your sentimental about your older format anime collections like this guy?

Meh, I threw most of my anime on VHS a long time ago.

Shit platform overall.
>>
>>149371687
this is actually the best way of viewing anime short of good telecine'd blu rays

dont make fun of what you dont understand
>>
>>149371687
Not really.
Especially when subbed tapes were more expensive

VHS>DVD?

Hoarders will be our salvation when it comes to documenting the history of anime releases.

An archive is always necessary. Many things are often lost to time itself

I remember a site that was specifically for Ranma fanfiction. Too bad only a fraction of that (site) survived

sucks for you if you didn't have the 3rd ep

I assume archive.org is all that saved the pieces that were left?

>>149371687
No. From an early age I've been surrounded by relatives who hoarded piles of worthless shit, so I know how the mind of a mentally ill person works like when it comes to his or her collection. Thinking props somehow enrich your life in any way is fucking retarded if it's impractical.
I do have 1k or so DVDs from when the Internet was very crappy, I even bought cases and printed original or fan-made covers for them, but I soon realized it was stupid. Now I can download all that in minutes so I wouldn't feel bad about trashing all that.
I've learned that only physical books and maybe a few manga are worth collecting (i.e., you can lend them to other people, and printed words are something that in case you die, could actually enrich the life of someone else).

>>149371687
this whole box would fit on a one BD-R or two
>>
>>149371687
I don't know why anyone would throw that stuff away if it's in decent condition. Those VHS tapes would look great neatly sorted on a shelf.
>>
You are analogy is shit anon.

It'd be more like if you lost weight or got extra buff. Same content but presented in a more attractive formant.
>>
>>149371687

I bought an S-VHS player just to watch old anime on VHS. It looks fucking FANTASTIC due to the built in time base corrector.
>>
>>149371687

No Gunsmith Cats on VHS? WTF dude!
>>
>>149374770
That whole box would fit on my USB stick

>Tenchi in Tokyo

There's a much better looking DVD release. ADV VHS releases always looked bad. I have some of the laserdiscs they released before they quit & they're all laser rotted, so I'm guessing ADV was a really shitty distributor.
