I just scored a nearly complete set of Urusei Yatsura tapes! Vol. 1-18 of the tv series, 3 of the movies, and 3 of the ovas. To the best of my knowledge i am only missing 2 vol. of the tv series, 3 movies, and 3 ovas. These tapes were released by AnimEgo from 1992-2000. I've never even seen more than 4 vol. for sale at one time, and the ovas are exceedingly hard to locate. The dvds have been out of print for almost 20 years and go for hundreds of dollars, so getting to watch this legitimately is amazing.

Some of the other tapes I've gotten recently are:

1. Urotsukidoji: The Perfect Collection, vol. 1-5 box set, subbed

2.The Hakkenden: Legend of the Dog Warriors, vol. 1-7, subbed

3.Don't Leave Me Alone Daisy, vol. 1-6 box set, subbed

4.Eat-Man 98, vol. 1-6 box set, subbed

5. Record of Lodoss War, vol. 1-6 box set, subbed

6. El-Hazard: The Wanderers vol. 2-7 subbed box set and vol. 1&4 dubbed

7.Fishing Yugi: The Mysterious Play, vol. 9-16 box set, subbed

I've been selling my video game collection and turning it into anime vhs tapes. It's killing me not being able to upload any of these, as there is hardly any anime in the database. I've acquired about 250 tapes since the site stopped accepting submissions that are not in the database, and about 160 of these are anime.

On a whim yesterday morning, I typed in " cartoon vhs lot" on ebay. I found a lot of tapes for $10 with poor pictures. I looked through them, and in the junk are both Aladdin: King of Thieves and Aladdin: Return of Jafar, the 2005 re-release versions in slipcovers. Not sure what they are worth, there's nothing to compare them with.

Probably not much different than the original printings. At least in my opinion.

@ JSpartan1989: I wouldn't be so sure about that. Those later release (2004-2006) Disney tapes are worth more than you might think. Just depends on what it is. I recently sold a copy of Mulan II (2005) for $15. I know thats not much compared what some other tapes go for, but for a 2005 release, that's pretty good. The 90s Disney tapes are completely worhless and are pretty much unsellable individually.

Fair point. Pity about the 90s Disney tapes not being worth anything. In a way.

Bought the MCA Universal VHS releases of Mr. Write and Monolith.
And while not VHS, I also found the British DVD of Double Impact and the German DVD of Misery. Both are said to preserve the 1981 Columbia Pictures logo while a lot of domestic home video prints of those two films remove it.

Ebay was running a 20% off everything cupon yesterday, so I bought a lot of anime hard clamshells. I got the following:

 

1. Armitage vol.  2,3,4, Pioneer

2. Kimagure Orange Road OVA vol. 2,3,4,5, AnimEigo

3. New Cutey Honey vol. 1,2, A.D.  Vision

4. Bubblegum Crisis ep. 1, A.D. Vision

5. Burn Up! , A.D.Vision 

6. Kishin Corps vol. 1, Pioneer

7. Kekko Kamen vol. 1, A.D. Vision

8. Cowboy Bebop vol 1,2, AnimeVillage.com

9. Several Dragon Ball Z movies, soft clamshelclamshells, Funimation

Over half of thses included the liner notes, which is awesome. Anime in hard clamshells are considerably harder to find than anime in slipcovers, and are generally more valuable, ranging from $8-20 for most titles. Only a handfull of companies used these, including Pioneer, U.S. Renditions, AnimEigo, Viz, AnimeVillage.com (aka Bandai), A.D. Vision, SoftCel, and the ever elusive prints from Dark Image. Dark image only released 4  hard clamshells, Guyver: Out of Control, 2 volumes of Devilman, and Kabuto.

I just picked up another lot of hentai from the same seller as the above tapes, including 5 more hard clamshells. I got the following:

1. Angel ot Darkness, SoftCel

2. Dragon Knight, A.D. Vision

3. Dragon Knight: Another Knight on the Town, A.D. Vision

4. Twin Dolls II, SoftCel

5. Magical Twilight, SoftCel

6. Can Can Bunny Extra, SoftCel

7. Demon Beast 1&2, Anime 18

8. Lady Blue 2, Anime 18

9. New Angel 5 (very very rare), SoftCel

10. Tales of Misbehavior, Kitty

I hit a flea market and some thrift stores out of town today, found some cool tapes, mostly stuff I'm going to sell. You can't go wrong at $.25-$.35. I found the following:

1. Demon Beast Invasion Vol. 1-5, Anime 18, slipcover

2.Video Trivia Vol. 3: Movies and Television, Best Film and Video Corp., clamshell

3.The Legend of Valentino, Prism Video, clamshell

4. The Maverick Queen, NTA Home Ent./ Republic Pictures, clamshell

5. Guiding Image: David and Goliath, Magnum Ent., clamshell

6. Guiding Image: Moses, Magnum Ent., clamshell

7. High Road to China, Warner HV, clamshell

8. The Killing Fields, Warner HV, clamshell

9. Riding Bean, AnimEigo, clamshell

10. Grey: Digital Taget, Viz, Orion, slipcover

11. Moby Dick (animated), MGM/UA, clamshell

12. Salaam Bombay(open but still in plastic), Virgin, slip

13. Your Ticket is No Longer Valid (open but still in plastic), Vestron, slip

14. Queenie (sealed), Starmaker, slip

15. Mesmerised, Vestron, slip

16. Robert Klein on Broadway, Vestron, slip

17. Kid Video: Pink Sphinx,Dic/ Golden Book video, slip

18. James Bond Jr. Episode 7, MGM/UA, Slip

19. 14 assorted volumes of Babylon 5, Columbia House/ Warner HV, clamshell

 

... and a bunch more. I am particularly pleased about finding the original subbtitiled clamshell version of Riding Bean. It was one of the first 8 tapes or so that AnimEigo put out in 1990, and it is very rare. It doesn't have the liner notes and is an ex-rental, but still a great find.  All in all, a killer haul, and I left a considerable abount of mid to late 80s tapes. Maybe I should go back sometime when I have the money.
