About VHS Fansubs

Post by Wezenheim » Sat Jan 02, 2016 12:51 am

I posted this survey a while ago http://www.kanzenshuu.com/forum/viewtop ... =1&t=32318 aimed at the community that prefers Japanese Dragon Ball over English because I was writing a college paper about "Dragon Ball Purists" if you will. The paper of course has been turned in, but I feel as though it is not complete and I do want to perhaps upload it somewhere in the future. It does need a bit more work. One thing I wanted to write about but didn't have the paper space or the time to research were the infamous DB fansubs on VHS. I feel as though these things hold at least some sense of nostalgia for many here and I think they at least deserve some kind of mention in my paper. However I know very little about them beyond the fact that they exist and that a few of them took some funny liberties with translations.

Are there many people here who know a lot about them or even collected them? How were they obtained and were they nostalgic to you? Are there any links or other threads that shed some more light on them? Any kind of information that you guys can give me is highly appreciated.

Ah, thanks a lot! I'll definitely have to take notes on this! I need to catch up on the podcasts in general.

This site has a lot of info about DBZ fansubs, including clips, scans of tapes, an interview with a fansubber, and bios of varying length on different fansub groups:
