hey guys glad to see there's more people into this anime thing
ne1 wanna trade tapes post in this thread
i got some fansubbed DBZ tapes. I hear that series is pretty popular atm
welcome back to 1991
Saint Seiya was clearly superior.
I still have Fatal Fury on VHS. I wish I had a player just so I could nostalgiate a bit. ;_;
Capitan tsubasa its awesome guys!!!
you still haven't finished that....?
maybe you've heard of somthing called dbgt oh wait i guess noy
I miss old fansubers, putting "FUCK" in every line >>>>> inserting lame internet memes (HUR HUR, AYAKO).
holy shit, i have that exact same fansub on tape
I watch Kenshin tapes that are a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy. I am grateful even for this flickering quality.
Hecto Fansubs! Those were the days...
HAHAHAHA, OH WOW
Anyone this old still browsing /a/ is a very sad person.
INDEED BANZAI NEWFAGS
Not really, I consider myself oldschool for being around when Toonami first started and watching Irresponsible Captain Tylor subs on the foreign channel.
Anyone who recognizes this shit and has vhs subs of anime is a creepy 30 year old.
>>I'M A NEWFAG, DUR HUR
>I'm in my 30s and go to cons and look at teenage girls, durrhurr.
If you're in your 30s and you're not looking at teenage girls you're a faggot.
I'm only 21 and VHS subs were still active when I got into anime. Fuck YOU and your digital subs, spoiled newfags.
Enjoy your children's cartoons.
>>I'm 12 years old and I go to cons to cosplay as Naruto
I lol'd because that's so true.
No, sorry, I don't watch Gurren Lagann/One Piece/Bleach/Naruto
Sorry, Sakura. Guess again. I don't do cross-sex cosplay even though my friends say I would look cute XD
Can't believe I'm talking to you guys about this, I know you're the sick sweaty fat old guys who watch me in my costume and take pictures with one hand in their pockets.
You are either a troll or a Gaiafag.
I have all of the Vision of Escaflowne on 2 VHS tapes, lowest quality setting for maximum ammount of eps on one VHS.
Shit was SO cash.
Heh, I remember back when anime cons showed poorly fan-subbed VHS tapes...those were the days.
....Yes, THe GOOD days, when anime was still underground. I miss those days. Even with all the advancements that have come around (for good or bad) I still muss those times. Back when there were only real fans.
Nowadays, I just can't tell who's a real fan, and who's just along for the ride till they outgrow it.
Spoiler: Anime is something to enjoy by yourself, not with 50 other people.
Anyone who actually has taste and watches things they consider good couldn't give a shit if anime is underground or not.
You miss my point. I hate the fact that these people came along and started affecting the market. These people are the reason why there's piles of shit to wade through in order to find something good mixed in, or hidden at the bottom.
I'm an not above calling myself an elitist.
If you think american weeaboos affect the anime market you're an idiot.
Japanese anime producers couldn't give a shit about the American market.
Stop buying dubbed/licensed crap.
What I don't get is why, even though the Japanese economy is doing better now than it was ten years ago, anime budgets are a fraction of what they used to be and they all pretty much look like shit.
I know the birthrate has gone to hell, so maybe there's just fewer Japanese kids watching anime = smaller market = less money.
More anime is being made, they cut corners constantly for cost effectiveness, and CG animation has made shit much crappier.
Isn't CG itself a cost-cutting measure? It has to be cheaper than traditional cel animation. And it's possible for CG not to look like shit; except that it usually does.
I'm going to be a good Japanese-style xenophobe and blame the fact that animation was farmed out to cheap Korean outfits that apparently can't draw.
I have 5 subbed tapes of Urusei Yatsura on betamax.
Should get the laserdiscs. They have more room for bigger artwork on the jackets.
