Anime on laserdisc.In the olden days, if you wanted to watch subtitled Japanese cartoons, someone would hook their laserdisc player up to an Amiga hooked up to a S-VHS deck, and the Amiga would digitally add subtitles.

And that's how we fansubbed in the olden days.

Might have to wait a while.Not that I mind...
