Hello Fellow Otaku,

This might be somewhat of a sad day for some of you old school Otaku out there. The reason why I say this is because the format of the laserdisc is now officially dead. It was recently announced that pioneer electronics will be discontinuing development of laserdisc players. For those of you who do not know what laserdisc is, laserdisc was the predecessor of modern DVD players. Laserdisc were huge, it just about the same size as a 45 record used for record players. Here is an example of what one looks like.

  • My view: I remember laserdisc briefly because I remember in my fifth grade science, we use to watch movies on them. It was really cool. It is an unfortunate shame that this format would not last for a new generation.

With that said, that wraps up another edition of the week in anime, but I would like to know what your experience with laserdisc was. Feel free to share your experience in the comments section of this post. Take care everyone and I will catch you guys later.
