First, thanks for makinng this. If i remember properly, the first files were from Laserdisc, but unfortunately, you don't have Laserdisc anymore for the rest ?

Only episodes 1-6 were released on LaserDisc in Japan. The rest of the series is incredibly rare and has never been released on home video in any format. The estate of novelist E.E. "Doc" Smith is not too keen on the anime, and would prefer it be forgotten in the hopes they can eventually launch a franchise of big-budget Hollywood live action adaptations. So the only way to get episodes 7-25 of Lensman is to know someone who was an anime video collector in 1984, and had a Japanese pen-pal recording the series for them on VHS or Betamax. Then you have to hope that a 34 year old home video recording will play back well enough to make a decent encode. And then there's all the work that so many people, volunteering their time for the love of the project, put into making the subtitles. While these episodes from ancient videotapes may not be mint perfect quality, getting to see this rare series subtitled has been a dream of mine for years.
Thanks for the explanation, and thanks to all the poeple involved. My purpose was absolutely not to critic the quality, just out of curiosity to know the status. For exemple, the fact that only ep 1-6 were released in LaserDisc, and it seems they are almost the sumit collector items, maybe similar level to Daicon LaserDisc. I've read the novels, and E.E. "Doc" Smith is the pioneer of space opera. Only know the movie anime, which is... But still, it's a very interesting curiosity for a "Lensmen" fan like me. My thanks again for making avaible this very rare serie.
