Pretty swanky tasuke. Do you have a prefered format or just watch what you're in the mood for? I try not to have doubles(try is the key word) of movies across different formats. Then it just becomes a matter of what movie I want to watch.


that's kind of hard to say, as i tend to like all the formats i have on each one's individual merits.

i do have a fair number of doubles across formats... it is to be expected. i enjoy having them all,
especially 1st edition 1980's VHS and the more exotic LD special editions of some of my old favorites...

Haha, wow! Some nice hardware, but dang, needs some deep cleaning! Also, I've always wondered. It seems that the TV's and speakers are being skimped on. :(

Otaku is a not very negative term from Japan describing a person who's a little (or a lot) maniacally about his collection. You could be an anime otaku, military otaku, equipment otaku, movie otaku, etc.

supposedly, -at one time, at least- in Japan "OTAKU" was a slanderous title of often dangerously negative consequence, though i don't believe it is the same today.

in the U.S. in the late 90's/early 00's OTAKU became THE cutting edge title in vogue for the serious hardcore Anime fan,
and it has since, -much as it has in Japan, i believe- become the catch-all title for the Anime fan in general, sort of gaining and losing value all at once...

Every person on this forum is otaku. Some are less terrifying and pathetic than others.

in their own personal respective ways, indeed that is quite true.

for "most" people in this day and age, however, an "OTAKU" is nothing more or less than those sorts of individuals
who have a fixation on those Cutesy and/or Sexy underage girls (and, more and more often, boys) from those weird and creepy Japanese cartoons and video games...

Here's what mine looked like a year or so ago.
Since then I've only increased my holdings. Shelving has also been rearranged.

Whoa, that's a lot. You must've spent a fortune on those.

As long as the collection is not more importen then your family and friends, then its no problem I think. I see no problem with collecting. And all these items are time documents of a popular culture that will vanish in the pace of digital media grow. And if no one collected them, they would end up in the dumpster.

I was googling Japanese Otaku Room pictures just for kicks after seeing this wonderful thread, and came across this website (which I found while doing an image search for "カードキャプターさくら ld" of all things)

http://www.sakurachan.org/av/equip/

... All I can say is... sugoi. The owner of that website must have been RICH to afford all that amazing gear. Granted, this was posted sometime in 2002 according to his/her main site, so maybe most of that is gone now.

edit: There's actually a lot of other neat stuff on this person's main site, like comparisons between different video cassettes (VHS/Beta, etc.) and different models of VCRs and DVD players.

http://www.sakurachan.org/av/index.html

I'm currently reading through it via Google Translate. Great stuff!

Less than you would think. Partly because I have a reputation as "the anime LD guy" (for instance, I bring a player & some selections to conventions to put on a program of "classics, the overlooked, and the justifiably obscure"), people have had a tendency to offer me discs they were getting rid of, at very cheap rates. I picked up an entire collection of about 200 discs for the cost of postage from one fellow who said he just hadn't played them in a long time, & didn't need them taking up shelf space.

Also, that gold rush with Surugaya. Geez, I picked up SO many anime LDs during that time, most at around %5-10 of original retail. I'm *still* having a hard time believing I finally have a Ghibli ha Ippai and only payed $70.

Did you order straight from Surugaya or through Rakuten? I've bought several lots of SFC games through Rakuten, maybe I should start looking for LDs too... :lol: I've been getting all my LDs from Yahoo Auctions, so shipping and proxy fees are included and vary a lot. At least through Rakuten I'd get a better shipping estimate!

Are the LD sales from Surugaya still going on? You speak of it in past tense...
