Happy Memorial Day 2016: The Menu Vault: Old Classic VHS OVA’s

Hey fans! I thought I’ll dig in the vaults and pull out some oldies , that many fans may have not seen in years? Well especially new anime fans, that were not around during those glory days of VHS, yes there was time when you have to have a VHS to watch imported anime OVA. during the 80,s Era …these VHS were a costly thing to get..and many anime fans today sort  them out which some never were put on DVDs  cause the licensed of the company during that time presented companies no longer exist. The few lucky ones that could afford them, may right now wish they have kept them old relics..I know the smart ones did. and sorting them out today is like a real treasure seeking adventures..but fortunately King Menu has quite a collection of Forgotten OVA,s I think my pal GouNoKen, will like this post, in a way he made me think about the old VHS back in the day. Also fans I recommended you to check out his page http://oldanimeandretrocave.blogspot.se/  Check it out and leave him some comments he doing an awesome job there! now to the main event, First up is one that fans would love to see.
