Here’s a classic, from the old ANIMEfringe website: Sonmay Anime Soundtracks

Taiwanese knock-offs of anime soundtracks.  Sometimes the only way you legitimately got anime osts back in the day.

Back in the day, we had VHS. I still have all of Eva on tape (fortunately I bought all mine used on eBay in 2001, when I was 15.) I had to go somewhere out of town (usually a Suncoast) to find a decent selection of anime. 13 tapes, 2 episodes a tape. English dubbed retail cost:$24.99 each. English subtitled retail cost: $29.99 each. So depending on how you wanted to watch it, $324.87 dubbed, $389.87 subtitled. Some shorter shows that were released in the 90s, like Tenchi Muyo or Golden Boy, only had one episode a tape.

Now you can download this in HD in a few hours and fit it on one flash drive. For free. You guys had it easy compared to me haha.

Yup, we really called it that.

the dude who made fist of the north star just looks like some shady auto shop owner and i think that makes it way better. like walking in on your boss without him knowing and finding him drawing this really good manga about muscular men beating the shit out of eachother

the fact that he made a manga about badass corporate auditors makes more sense now

The End of Osamu Tezuka →

monzo12782:

[Osamu] Tezuka once stated his intention to keep working into his eighties, but it was a hope more than anything else. He was a physician (and thus presumably capable of monitoring his health), and he seemed to have good genes; his father survived the war and lived to be eighty-six. Yet even…

my favorite thing about liking sports anime is that i can get a favorite character without fearing for their death

kids today are spoiled by these namby-pamby modern sports anime. in 1970, when ashita no joe’s rival died, fans held a FUNERAL LED BY A BUDDHIST MONK IN A BOXING RING.
