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.

I had a huge score last week. Found someone in the Netherlands who had an old abandoned rental shop he was clearing. Got about 275 movies mostly 90's action flicks from distributors i am collecting.

Movies like:

Techno-Fear, Steel frontier, executive command, terminator woman, cyborg 3 and fatal bond.

It was a good day :)

I just scored the Frankenstein anime from Vestron for $8 shipped in very good/ like new condition. It's from 1984, and is the oldest anime vhs I've heard of.

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.
