David Foster has been involved in the anime fansub scene for over 7 years, mostly as a consumer. This passion led him to start the University of Maine Animation Club in Orono and even take him to Japan for 2 1/2 years where he amassed a very large anime laserdisc collection. For the past few years he has been fansubbing some of these laserdiscs for mainly his own enjoyment. He does not actually do the translating, but obtains scripts from other fansub groups, retimes and edits the scripts as necessary and creates fansub master copies. Since his introduction to fansubs many years ago, the number of fansub groups has multiplied, and the number of fansub releases is still high despite large number of successful commercial releases.
