8thman.com's Anime Archive is an extension of the Web's most comprehensive resource on the 8th
Man series: 8thman.com. We specialize in Vintage Anime and Asian tokusatsu/ kaiju offering the
highest quality English-dub materials to the serious enthusiast. Because we are specialists in the
field and don't offer a wide range of film genres from numerous foreign countries we can concentrate
our efforts to provide the very best obtainable titles and episodes. Look around and doubtless you will
find similar titles in other places like online auctions, etc. But, most likely, theirs will be crammed on
too few discs, and highly compressed with very little original video signal left in the data. This is fine
for lowering their overhead, but not good for the customer! Preserving the signal quality throughout
the conversion chain, using the proper quantity of discs for the material involved, offering optional
printed graphics on our discs, and keep our shipping prices at rock-bottom is what sets the Anime
Archive apart from the crowd in collector's videos. Since the mid-90's we set out to "raise the bar" on
people's expectations of rare English-dub anime and we believe we have succeeded! Our attitude
has been and always will be a continual "pursuit of excellence" which makes us your # 1 source on

It has become commonplace in the mainstream video industry to produce program content that
includes an "overlay" of text or logos to identify that content with the producer. For this same reason
our special derivative works have very minimal "branding" to identify them with the our Archive. In our
efforts this consists of periodic appearances of very brief, semi-transparent text that is designed to
blend with the content so as to be hardly noticeable to the viewer. We trust this is professionally
performed so in no way does it detract from the viewer's enjoyment of the program.
Additionally, we hope this practice will encourage those of like mind to produce / distribute rare
collector's videos to perform original research, acquisition and production of their own unique
derivative works as we have labored to do.
