Video Girl Ai complete set with Obis. Man this was my gateway fansub drug in the day. I loved this s**t. I bought all the original manga and tons of Katsura artbooks and stuff. This guy can draw my kinda gals..


Nice, I just watched my copies of these a month ago, it still holds up pretty good, especially the music (even the songs that Katsura-sensei sings). Need to re-watch DNA2 one of these days, too.

Unfortunately there was some rot on the first 2 discs (both sides, I think), but they're still pretty watchable. Any show up on your copies?

I wish I had VHS copies as well because of the obvious link to the content, but most copies out there now are ex-rentals...

Still need to see the DNA2 anime. I have all the manga, my favorite manga of his is I"s. I have a DVD of the OAVs they made from it. Only one is good.

I've only checked disc 1 and it's fine luckily. The seller noted that there was some slight and short problem or distortion on disc 3 so I assume/hope if there was rot on the other discs he would have mentioned it.

Video Girl Ai was a famous rotter. Maybe the only Japanese rotter I had ever heard of before joining this forum. That’s the main reason I never got it.

Plans for my video How to Handle LD are taking shape. I have it mostly planned out and I got the cable I needed.

I bought a sealed copy of Kenji’s Spring from G&J that I will open in the video to demonstrate how the bags sit when new.

I could really use a sealed American LD to compare but I don’t have any. If anyone can sell me something cheap that would be great. It just has to be sealed and not p0rn and it has to have an EC inside (no paper lined like Disney and MGM) and it’s probably good enough for my purposes. Sometimes with American LDs you can actually tell how mashed up the inner bag is already because it will crunch through the cardboard when you squeeze it slightly. If anyone has a Speed or a Red October like that please sell it to me. If it’s something two discs that would be great.

Really the only disc I have sealed is a HK disc, I'll sell to you cheap if you want one.

But no USA sealed discs.

Won an eBay auction for the US 3x3 Eyes LD. The DVD release of it is truly awful and I want to see how the LD compares. I assume it's a lot better.
