Back in the day I stayed up late at night to watch anime on a wooden box TV that sat on the carpet floor in the living room. Had to keep the volume way down because my parents' room was right next to the living room and if my mom knew half of the sexy stuff I was seeing in Betterman and other shows...

Pic related is close to what our TV looked like, it was older than me but still worked perfectly despite having survived water damage from hurricane Hugo.

It's like these things were built to make nostalgic memories because the best way to watch late night anime on them is to lay on your stomach on the floor with your chin in your hands and head close to the screen. When I get to be an old man I'm going to hire someone to build a replica of it but with all of the modern connections I'll need to plug it up to my computer and watch anime on it, reliving my childhood.

I remember that 27 inch monster mother fucker weighing a goddamn ton.
ONE thing about it, because it was an all wood cabinet, it actually had REALLY good sound compared to TV's nowadays.

I did some old VHS fansubbing back in college. We had the university's video toaster, much like pic related, to work on to add the subs. Then we'd take that home and one of us would stay up all night making copies from one VCR to the other to sell to our friends.
We never had a large network, but there was one video store who would by a few of each episode from us to sell in his store.
The store's still there and probably still sells bootlegs. Haven't been in there in nearly 20 years.

I guess in those times there wasn't as much of a "stigma" to wanting to learn japanese?
For the most part. My grandfather had fought in the Pacific Theater in WWII and still didn't like "the Japs" but still drove a Toyota.
I never bothered to learn it, our little group had a couple of guys whose families were from Japan(they were both first generation born here) so they had a good grasp. Or at least we thought they did. No one else spoke a lick, so we couldn't challenge them. My duty was mostly going over their scripts and fixing spelling and grammar and then entering it into the toaster.
Sometimes I miss pressing a physical button and seeing the tapes come together from a team effort in rack upon rack of editing equipment is more fulfilling that just making a few mouseclicks in modern editing software.
Don't get me wrong, even Windows Movie Maker has far more capabilities and is much faster and easier to use than the old toaster. I never thought I'd miss that old musty/rubbery/leathery smell the editing booth had.

I'm not nearly old enough to remember those days; I was just seven when it aired originally.

Instead I downloaded little 320x480 .avi episodes off of Limewire when I was 15. Watched an episode or two every day for a couple of weeks in order to give my shitty internet the time it needed to download the next ones, staring at my boxy monitor in the dark, craning my neck to read the subtitles. I remember being so distraught when Asuka got mindraped and Misato figured out Kaji was dead.

And then I downloaded EoE. I watched it, turned off the computer, and just lay awake in bed for a long time.

Then I'd been watching things like Pokemon, Samurai X, Batman (TAS and Beyond), Inuyasha(This one was a little bit later in life) and Looney toons. I even remenber some episodes of DBZ and Gundam wing. All night long (actually until I fell asleep and woke up in my bed) on Cartoon Network, plenty of time before they added Toonami. Sometimes I watched what was on Fox Kids or Magic Kidd. All of that in a wooden box TV that had knobs on a side to adjust the image, loved to use that to turn it black and white(and even funnier to see that the Adams and the Stooges looked the same)

When I first saw Evangelion, I had gotten all of them second hand from an anime club friend of my big brother, they were all VHS tapes, i assume recorded off tv or something.

it was okay, at the time I thought the show was boring and I remember falling asleep using my oniichan's lap as a pillow. Animation was nice though.
good times.

On a funnier note I temporarily worked at one located in a real middle-of-nowhere area and it still had floppy discs in 2014.
