I bought the 15th Anniversary box new in 2000 from Japan, it was a bif of a dream to get it as I drooled over the pictures of it in the back of the manual for my much loved Saturn DYRL? game in 1997. I drooled over ALL the pictures at the back of that manual! Sadly, I lost it in a fire in 2004, I never even opened the discs. Still need to replace it one day. It is harder and harder to come by now though, especially complete. If I could ever find it new again I'd buy it in a heartbeat. I did manage to get a new, unopened Evangelion movie box last year, that was lost along with the Macross box. I do need to get the 1992 version as well some day. It is far more common than the 97 version now. It used to be the other way around.

Ouch!

I have a friend with hundreds of unopened blu rays. I'm like, "you gotta make a plan to actually enjoy those soon because tomorrow might not come. "

At least if the same fate happens to me I will have the memories of watching 90% of my discs.

I was studying in Japan 2000/2001. I got my first LD out of a bargain bin near animate in Ikebukuro, a used copy of DYRL? Perfect Edition box for Y1000. I used to watch it on my uni library's LD players.

Were you over there in that same time?

Macross for Saturn is one of my favorites too, I had the bootleg back when you had the real, I got the real a few years ago since it's cheap. Great game.

I was not over there until 2006/07. I was in Akita >_< There was one really good, HUGE shop me and my best friend from the uni used to go to all the time but stupidly, I never even thought about LDs then. I thought I was done with LD in 2001. I do remember thinking "I bet I can get one of those expensive LD players really cheap now!", then I looked at yahoo and saw that I was very wrong. The big shop I went to did have LDs, but they were shoved in display units side on so there was no flicking through. It was squinting to see what the hell the spine said. I looked once and gave up, lol.

I really got back into LDs by accident. I bought Hashire Melos! sealed off Rakuten in 2012, then I bought US Lensman, M.D Geist and Twilight of the Cockroaches off ebay. I stumbled across an old website that detailed a lot of OVAs that never made it to DVD and it made me start searching to see if I could buy some. Now I have .... hundreds of the damn things! I used to download stuff from BakaBT and then searched for it if I liked it. I even have a VHD player for titles that those jerks Victor never released on LD.

I was very glad when I found a copy of Run Melos! It’s not the most famous thing but it’s one of my favorites. The story is incredibly moving. It reminds me of The Killer in a lot of ways.

Sadly, the LD isn’t very good, IIRC.

Yep, sadly it is one of the worst BV theatrical LDs I own. Along with Batsu and Terry. They didn't even use the original negative for it. You can see all the reel mark changes throughout the movie. A nice anamorphic DVD would have been so good! The animation is gorgeous at times, as are the backgrounds.

Mine for sure has a 12x12 book and glancing at it it looks to have been made for the 15th version.


Some good info in this thread!

Don't hesitate to add the bonus disc contents of the opening/ending versions to Macross: Super Dimension Fortress: 15 Years Anniversary Memorial Box (1982) [BELL-1036] for everyone to share.

Found time to take a pic of the contents (sadly missing the obi on the boxset) but with inserts and phone card.

If you don't post a pic I can do it in a while, I'll have to setup something to take a good pic.
