Throwback Ad Tuesday: FHE Anime Tapes

This vintage 1989 advertisement is an eye-opening reminder of just how much anime used to cost. Released under FHE's (Family Home Entertainment) "Just For Kids" Home Video banner, these tapes were going for $29.95 a pop. Fortunately, the advertisement offered a buy-two-get-one-free deal. Just For Kids released some fairly atrocious English-dubs, but even the dialogue was nothing compared to how much they butchered the films via editing and undue censorship. 

Available at the time were: Battle for Moon Station DallosClash of the Bionoids (the original Macross movie), Defenders of the VortexLocke the SuperpowerSpace Firebird, Techno PoliceSpace Warriors - Battle for Earth Station S-1.
