Yes, it's a Toshiba flat CRT w/ S-Video, VHS and progressive scan DVD. I also have a larger Insignia flat CRT with S-Video and component- a backup. It is not an HD CRT though (they made those for a while).
My PS2 and Dreamcast are permanently attached via a S-Video switcher I just installed. They look pretty great. Too bad it doesn't have component or VGA for the Dreamcast. I also have a softmodded Xbox that isn't shown. If the TV console were bigger I'd hook that up too. PS2, Dreamcast and Xbox on a flat CRT with built-in DVD and VHS is a pretty dope 2003-era living room setup (for console gaming anyway).

Yep. Most only have HDMI and maybe component RGB (with composite video on green) if you're lucky. Most of these old systems run at 320x240 or lower (SNES is 256x224). Now imagine hooking that up in composite to a 4K set and blowing it up to 3840x2160. Disgusting. It even looks bad on my 1080p flatscreen. It's much cheaper and looks better to use an old CRT if you have the original systems instead of buying a Framemeister from Japan...
All of my systems get hooked up in S-Video and I even added a mod board to my Genesis to get S-Video from it- S-Video is cheaper and hassle free compared to RGB SCART and all the converters and cables you need. The SNES can output S-Video out of the box with a $8 cable. The only systems that get hooked up in composite are PC Engine (was called Turbografx-16 here), NES and Master System due to them not supporting S-Video- the NES and PC Engine can be modded to output RGB for SCART but I'd risk destroying them in the process with my average soldering skills.

I am a ridiculously huge fan of them and saw them live in Chicago in 2016- on the bottom level, with only around 1k people. So I was really really close. I dressed like an idiot with a bunch of stuff and brought a Kitsune mask. Moa saw it and smiled at me
I've seen basically every concert DVD or Bluray they've put out, tons of interviews, even the old Sakura Gakuin nendo class tests. I'm also a huge fan of kami band which is just as great as the girls for me- I'm a big fan of all their other bands now (Far East Dizain is Leda's and Takayoshi Ohmura Band). I've even been learning Japanese pretty seriously because of them but have a long way to go (I can speak enough to communicate as a tourist, at least)

Nope! They do, however, work on my flat CRT, but I had to lower the brightness from whoever had it last. So the Zapper didn't work at first but after lowering the brightness it did. The Sega Saturn lightgun (for Virtua Cop games) also works. However, my Master System Light Phaser doesn't and I can't figure out why- I actually bought like 4 more of them and none worked. They may need the lense cleaned or something (I own a game called Rambo III for the SMS, it is kind of like the old Operation Wolf arcade by Taito, I want to play it but....) Oh, also the Sega Master System has a 3D glasses accessory and they work really well and the effect is pretty awesome for the time. I have multiple games that require them (about 5). So those work great too and won't work on an LCD.

lol. I have a lot of stuff I either printed or bought that's Japanese... but not into PVC statues. I have, however, watched anime since I was 8 (thats like 27 years lol) and seen hundreds if not thousands at this point. Would love to see your stuff.
