FORMATS NEVER DIE! Attack of the Laser Discs, Beta Cassettes and OLD ANIME MAGAZINES

Ok, so last weekend I was chillin’ with my buddy Seiya over at his place. Aside from just sitting and talking about random shit for hours, drinking Pocari Sweat, and generally just making a lot of noise, we mined through his collection of old anime stuff. I think I have his permission to post pictures, so here we go.

Right when I walked in I was greeted by two domestic LD releases of Akira and Project A-Ko.

It wasn’t long before he broke out the old issues of Animage.

Wow Japanese 3D animation went nowhere over the past 10 years.

I like this picture.

Look at this top 100 list. All of these characters are cel animated! And the first three are all Hayashibara!

God, so gay. And that little heart in the corner is just the icing on the fabulous cake. But seriously, where did Trowa get those muscles?

GA GA GA GA GA GA CUTIE HONEY FLASH. I need to see Gao Gai Gar, man.

This came out blurry, but you can still tell it’s absolutely hilarious.

Domestic Tench TV LD. Yeah, fuckin’ domestic. Seiya, man, where do you get this stuff?

Who needs Bandai Visual when you got this bad boy?

Yeah, that’s what you think it is. This is probably the most epic part of this post, only because we didn’t feel like taking out the GIANT First Gundam TV series LD boxset.

I had no clue this poster was so huge.

Oh, what could have been! I need to read the rest of this! Damn you, Viz!

Voltron on Betamax. That’s all I got to say.
