Wow really, you have never seen one? Well, they didn't sell many of them in Europe so that's understandable. Here's a page full of anime releases, so you get an idea of what they look like. http://www.pustan.com/ld/japan/index.html

Tenchi Muyo even came with the original film it was produced on! As for prices, I've seen a huge variety. The average lowest price I've found is about $15, and the average highest would be about $70. I found The Wings of Honneamise for$35, Akira for $40, and Princess Mononoke for $15. Which can be expensive, but keep in mind they are huge and have special features. You should enter the lottery lol, or put advertisements in your videos and get quick money that way. :P

What is the career change for? I think you work in the tech industry?

I wish I could recommend you something good to watch or read, but I got to read your entire lists first to see if you have already seen it or not! :O

Hey it's been awhile, how are things going with you?

I've been thinking about starting an old school anime collection (inspired by your VHS collection video) and better yet, collecting titles on LaserDisc. So much anime has come out for LaserDisc, with special editions and collectable goodies in many of them. I just think it would be a fun thing to collect, it's pretty similar to collecting vinyl records. I was just wondering since you have been an anime fan for a long time, do you remember watching any of them on LaserDisc? I know it didn't do too well in Europe but I thought I'd ask you anyway because maybe you know something about it?

Great, I think we have same opinion about the art on Lupin Movie :) I began my interest on Lupin Anime after I watched the Castle in Cagliostro movie because of the art and the story goes. Yup, Jigens Gravestone 2014 art movie is great and Fujiko Mine series new art is very stylistic. I think i will have to start watch Fujiko Mine series because i haven't finish it yet from 1 episodes.. XD

Hello, thank you for accepting my friend request. I did it because i saw your interest on Lupin Anime. :) By the way, which Lupin Movie has the best art in your opinion?

I might go on a trip to the Netherlands to see family next year, and I would love to visit England sometime! Haha, if I brought that bag to the airport the security would look at me funny. "Why does this guy have such a heavy bag full of VHS tapes?" That's not something you see everyday! xD

It would be cool to get the bag of tapes around Christmas, but I don't think Santa is willing to give me free shipping so who knows. -_- Yeah, let's see if there's any future ways that turn up for this. If I bought online, how would I pay?

Have you been watching any new anime btw? :O
AbhLeaderKrelian Sep 29, 2016 11:55 PM
Hey man, I thought I should tell you that after a lot of hard work, I finally got an international VCR so I can play tapes from the UK. If you still have those tapes, I could play them now. However... shipping will likely be hella expensive... maybe I should just visit London sometime! xD
AbhLeaderKrelian Jul 1, 2016 3:14 PM
Oh okay I see. I watched some of the video channels you recommend and I've been enjoying them so far. :)

If you would like a GUI in FreeBSD then I recommend checking out PCBSD. It's supposed to be even more stable for servers than even Linux, but there are not as many developers for it.

I have not watched Mr.Robot. Is it like Astro Boy? :P You description doesn't sound that way but I'll check it out. ^^

Remember awhile back in 2015 you had a video showing DRE's VHS anime collection? Has he sold it yet, and if not is the price exactly £1,060/$2,030? I know that's how much the collection is probably worth but I'm not sure if it's the actual selling price. I ask because I'm thinking about buying it but there are some obstacles. 1. I live in the USA, which means it would have to be shipped likely with a high price. 2. PAL region VHS tapes don't work normally on most NTSC VCRs so I would have to buy a special VCR that specializes in playing international tapes. (I am planning on buying another VCR anyway since my main one broke) 3. The price. I am not exactly sure if the price is exactly £1,060/$2,030 but that's too high for me considering that it's on top of the price I have to pay for a special VCR plus the shipping. It's too high considering I can watch most of those anime online or on a cheaper DVD. So why bother you may ask?

However the very reason I offer to buy the tapes is because watching anime on physical media feels more authentic than watching online if you know what I'm saying. I would like to sit down, and watch some anime classics with my friends! xD It's more fun than gathering around a computer monitor waiting for videos to buffer. So what are your thoughts on this? If I do buy the tapes, do I get the cool Nike bag too? :P

I would think it would be interesting if you made some more tech videos, but if you can't do it then that's fine. The whole privacy thing I am worried about with what Microsoft is doing with Windows 10 and is the main reason why I don't want to use that OS. Some people say to me "hey you could always hack it and completely cut it off from Microsoft" but the point is that I shouldn't have to do that. Even if it has the more familiar feeling (compared to the other OSes) with the biggest game library it's not worth having a company learning every detail of my computing life. It seems "1984" like. Haha... I actually DID NOT get the Windows 10 update messages! xD I am using Windows 8 and I turned off the automatic updates long before the Win10 thing came around. I turned off the updates cause they're annoying and they give off the "Windows creep". When you try out Windows 10 then you can let me know your thoughts on it. Or maybe make a video about it. Maybe make a series like "OS talk" where you discuss a certain OS, or just "Tech Talk" where you discuss other things with technology. Just an idea.

I remember using an Ubuntu Linux computer for the first time about 10 years ago and thought it was kind of a joke. "What's the point if it can't run as many programs as Windows?". It just seemed like the poor man's operating system. But in the past few year Linux has been making some BIG advancements, perhaps to the point where I don't really have to use Windows or Mac as my main OS in the future. Which is great because I don't like Window's direction, and never liked Mac's PRICE! xD (might as well build a Hackintosh)

Do you got any thoughts on FreeBSD?

I will look into tekthing, threatwire and hack5 sometime. Thanks for the recommendation!

Nice to hear from you too buddy! I am doing well right now, I hope you are doing well too! :)
AbhLeaderKrelian Jun 21, 2016 12:57 PM
Also, great job with the Year of Lupin reviews you got going! :)

Hey it's been awhile since I last sent a comment, and I have been rewatching some of your videos, in particular the "Mac vs. PC" one from June 2015. Since you are a tech guy, what are your thoughts on the Windows 10 privacy controversy? I am not sure if you actually use Windows 10, but how much power do you think a company like Microsoft or Apple should have over their users? Do you think it's okay for them to spy on their customers, even if the customers agree to it by clicking the "I Agree" button?

Got any thoughts on the matter?

Oh, silly me. I looked at your channel and saw only the popular posts which are older. I thought you were out of the game
nw407elixir May 13, 2016 12:33 AM
Heyyy, I've been one of rori's channel first subs and 3rd guy to do a vid with him, you were prolly the first. I liked your interview with him a lot, it was really fun, you were great at that, wish you had more content. I remembered you when I stumbled upon your Cool Devices review, that's a nice hentai, but I haven't watched all the operations yet. Any friend of my friend is also my friend, so good luck, my friend, I wish you well and hope you add me.

Wow that's pretty neat, I'll subscribe and follow along. There's been a couple of new movies/specials since that blogpost that have been pretty good, maybe I'll make an updated post at some point.

Thanks!

The 1999 anime had some really good fluid animation during the Yorkshin arc, but it was overall not as smooth as 2011. I like the character designs more as well. They seemed more...mature. You would have to put them side by side to see what I mean. Anime shouldn't have to 100% be like the manga, that's boring. I think the extra hunter exam arc on the battleship added to the story, because they were all working together. In the next exam with the badges, they were now against each other which made things more intense.

LOGH did get a reanimation, but it was only for some scenes, and it look really out of place. Like the Star Wars Special Editions. There actually was going to be a dub but it went nowhere. http://www.logh.net/classic/ax99.htm

Basically every Inuyasha episode is the same so you could just watch season 1, and skip to the end and you would still get the same experience.

I wonder if a new season of Ranma ½ should be done. Would it have the charm and the same voice actors though?
AbhLeaderKrelian May 19, 2015 10:30 AM
The manga ending is much more satisfying than the anime one. Just look at the cover of the last volume! Doesn't that give away the ending somewhat? The anime has a different ending because the studio I think went bankrupt (kitty films I think?) So there was no studio that wanted to finsh the series, besides some OVAs. The OVAs are actually original stories that did not happen in the manga (besides the newest one from 2008) but they are pretty good anyway.

Inuyasha the anime ended because it caught up with the manga, and I think people were catching on that every episode is pretty much the same, so they get sick of it. Honestly, if someone skipped a few seasons to get to the Final Act I would not really care.

Even though I really enjoyed the 2011 anime, I felt that in many ways it was weaker than the first anime. The 1999 anime had a darker tone, atmosphere and more fleshed out character development. The Yorkshin arc was made better because of this. While I do like the new anime, it just makes me upset that people are now going to ignore the old one...

I am excited for the Dark Continent, but I think it will be a very long time before it becomes an anime, if at all. Let's hope that we don't have to get a third reboot right? :P

If they just release the subs on DVD I'm down for that as well! Same with LOGH.
