If you recognize the items in these pics, you’re in the same club as me…
Sorry gang, we’re old…
For the younger otaku, the items here (top-to-bottom, left-to-right) are:
- a pager
- a rotary landline telephone
- 3.5-inch floppy disk (holds 1.44MB! less than your average mp3)
- a payphone
- a Betamax video tape player
- another style of pager
For the person who asked, here’s the Escaflowne VHS set. You can see the bit of sticker residue on volume 6. It’s not sticky at all and can be removed.
Like I said, I really wish I could keep the set because it has sentimental value, but I’m about to be moving in to a much smaller place and need to offload a lot of anime VHS and DVDs.
ETA: I had to special order these from Suncoast, every time I got paid from my part-time job I would drop something like $30 - $35 on one of these, and that’s how I watched the whole show. Anime used to be a much more expensive hobby than it is now.

So earlier today in class I was bumming around on Toshio Furukawa’s (seiyuu for Ataru Moroboshi’s) Wikipedia page, and found out that up until 2008, he owned a pet Shih Tsu- which he actually named Ataru. I started tearing up~ I just think it’s so friggin’ sweet that he thought that much of Urusei Yatsura to name said dog after his own role.
Also. I did the math— he probably adopted “Ataru” around 1993… and that’s still seven years after the show ended.
