Everyone on /a/ should have seen at least a quarter of these.
Oh I wasn't talking about Gamba, but rather the second Ashita no Joe season; the first one is a lot more interesting from a historical standpoint, considering it was Dezaki's debut and gives a lot of nice insights into his evolution as a director.
As far as lists go, this one from Animage for top 100 influential/popular/important of the 20th century is pretty solid. Animage's rankings and lists are honestly a pretty solid guide for 20th century in general when it comes to anime.

>bunch of hipsters garbage together with actually good milestone shows
I would bet my right hand that the guy who made that never watched 0079 and just put it there so the chart looks legit
>hasn't seen Akira
>hasn't seen Gits
>hasn't seen evanfuckingelion
i'm replying to bait aren't i
He is an important director sure.
I don't know which episode you refer too I haven't really read up on or discussed UC Gundam much. The only odd episodes I assume you might be referring to are the one on the island with that guy or the salt episode because they stick out as odd.
No, half of it is incredibly entry level series and movies that most Japs would have seen on TV as children.
>tfw Honneamise is my favorite Gainax work
I wish Gainax had done more like it.
Watched 21, am I cool yet?
My nigga, hard science fiction is amazing.
Doan's island isn't even important, it's a dumb episode. How would someone not being intimately familiar with the hokiest episodes of 0079 keep them from being informed of the series?
And, how would a couple of hoky episodes keep it from being one of the most influential TV series ever made?
>no Giant Robo
>no super robot shows in general
>bunch of hipster art films
Oh yes watching this will turn you into an expert
Holy fuck, I'll ask eve if I get trolled, it has me upset.
I saw an anime with a couple of samurais and a big breasted blonde girl, she wore a hat I think.
Don't remember the name, help.
also, OP's list a shit.
You have got to be kidding me, I just tried googling it and I instantly found on wikipedia.
>In both American TV showings and on the American DVD release, episode 15 ("Kukurus Doan's Island") was cut out. According to Yoshiyuki Tomino, the animation was not up to his usual standards, the episode becoming a "lost episode" of sorts, never being dubbed.
If I wanted to cheat I would have got it fucking right. I was guessing from memory about a show I watched many years ago.
Everyone on /a/ should have seen at least a quarter of these.
Osmosis mostly, spend any meaningful amount of time on /m/ and you can overhear these things
If a question is presented, and you give two answers not sure which one is correct you failed to answer the question.
I've never spent anytime on /m/ but of course the most logical answer is that I lurked there long enough without ever seeing the show that I know it must be one of those two and I am making everything up and you have caught me out for the fraud I am.
56/70. There's some great anime on that list, also a lot of mediocre stuff.
Most of those artsy shorts and WMT adaptations aren't worth watching. Stick to Tezuka's short films and 3000 Leagues and that's plenty. And personally I don't think anyone should have to see ALL the Ghibli films, not all of them are especially interesting.
Changes I would make to OP's list would be to add Gunbuster and Nadia, replace the GE999 movie with the TV series, and add the entire Patlabor franchise (not that the second movie isn't great).
/a/ is so shit nowadays that people fall for this bait.
Now if I can make a suggestion you're missing some.
Bubblegum Crisis OVA
For the same reason that I don't think anyone should feel obligated to see all the Ghibli films, or the many variations on the transforming super-robot theme: each WMT tells a different story, but they generally share very similar visuals, themes, and overall approaches. If you watch 2-3 examples you'll have a pretty good idea what to expect from the others.
Really though the Tezuka shorts are some of the most shallow and worthless on there if you are going to watch anything it should be the stuff like Yamamura, Kawamoto and Okamoto.
I thought you meant they weren't good enough to be worth watching or something like that. But yeah I agree that they all share several similarities, but Takahata's WMT works are something everyone should watch given they have a lot of his characteristic directing and stand out the most among all the adaptations.
>Implying anyone who likes anime would watch old shit so he can tip his fedora to other faggots.
If you genuinely liked anime, why wouldn't you watch old anime? There are some great shows from back then.
Wow, 27? Get a fucking life you otaku.
The reason I picked the Tezuka shorts over those by Yamamura, Kawamoto and Okamoto is because Tezuka had a direct influence on commercial anime and setting expectations for the genre, so they're the most likely to be of interest to the /a/ community.
Out of this entire list the only essentials are
>Random list of old obscure anime with a few classics
You had one job.
One of the guys you replied to, in all honesty, I used to say the same thing as you because I figured it was just obscure oldfag hipster shit,
and then I actually watched it.
It's unfathomable that something 110 episodes long kept my interest more than most 12 episode anime today.
Christ. This word gets thrown around a lot here, but you might actually be hilariously autistic.
Do you see how absurd you sound at this point? I watched fucking Blood+ years and years ago, but I can barely recall most episodes, and I sure as hell don't have it on my PC. That doesn't mean I never fucking watched it.
