I've tried but the animation terrible quality together with the incredibly childish plots made it very hard to watch more than 10 episodes.

There are some excelent movies from the time tho and I've watched a lot of those but tv anime is very bad.

that's all I watch.

mostly because men and women from that era look like men and women ,and not just some gender ambiguous hair/body mix-n-mash.

Anon this may surprise you, but anime in the 80s wasn't produced digitally at 640x480. It was actually shot on film, and thanks to this interesting new technology called "Blu Ray", many of these shows are available in the high definition resolutions that your sad plebeian mind for some reason requires to enjoy anime.

He's not a minority. A lot of people really loved the 80's style of animation. Mostly because of the shading. It made anime look "realistic" in terms of lighting and depth.

Artwise the best show I've seen in the past year is probably Hibike, and even then the best shots really pale in comparison to stuff like Bubblegum Crisis. KyoAni does shading basically anywhere except the face though, and it still looks like modern anime. Nothing like what the 80's and early 90's had.

Traditional Disney animation is better than 99% anime because it's a lot more fluid and relies on that to show form instead of shading. The characters show complex movement without breaking form, no complex shading is needed to understand.

Since you're using that fucking Otaking picture, I assumed you were baiting but from your little write up there I can't tell.

Fuck off, you fucking retard. Pull your head out of your ass and actually watch some 80s anime that aren't movies and high budget OVAs. Look at all this great character shading from muh 80s anime! And Gorg is one of the better looking shows from the 80s. You also conveniently leave out the fact that shows like Lodoss which look great in stills are mostly just that: stills.

Sure, but what does that have to do with the anime? The people that encode the series don't wish to compress it to hell and back - they'd just be wasting their time. It's your own fault for being in such a situation. Like hating on expensive food simply because you can't afford it.

>>135678690
To some degree anime can age. There is the overall increase in speed across all media, that makes old anime feel slower.
Also, anime that has been copied over and over or has had an overall great influence on the medium as a whole may feel really generic, because the things that were new and exciting in them have been copied by everything since.

I'm watching 90s anime instead. Starship Girl Yamamoto Youko.

It just isn't very good. It's too edgy, and in some respects it feels like a proto-Madoka. I'm sure Shinbo took a lot from this to reuse in it.

Maybe it will get better by the end, but I'm not enjoying it much right now.

Why can't you like both old and modern anime? Why must we find petty reasons to be condescending to each other? Just be appreciative of the fact that anime has delivered consistent art and entertainement over the decades.

It does. Things change. Something that was novel when the anime came out could be commonplace now and have been done much better by other things, and you won't enjoy that as much. And standards for some things do get higher, especially visuals - CGI's gotten much better over the last few decades, stock footage is no longer acceptable, etc.

I really haven't watched much 80s anime. I actually don't think I've watched a single TV anime, only a few OVAs and movies, but not much of that either. Though, to be fair, most 80s anime with a cultural continuity up to modern anime culture is OVAs.

It's not like I'm opposed to 80s stuff, it's just that I don't watch a lot of old stuff, and the 80s seems to be a dead period compared to the 70s and the 90s when it comes to older anime.

Also older anime is always fucking huge on bakabt. Everything is blur ray rips, which is nice but would suck for people on data caps, especially since older anime tends ot either be a couple of ovas, or a 100 episodes series + movies + ovas + another series.

Because they generally weren't nearly as railroaded into archetypes like they are today.

I hate to say it like this because MUH NORMIES REEEE but by and large you can really tell that both the intended audience and those producing the show (although the latter group generally aren't as bad) are socially stunted in a major way and by and large that's sent writing in general and character writing specifically into a nosedive. This is true of many other forms of popular entertainment as well but anime has always been risk-averse on the business end (for what it costs to make one episode of your average TV anime, you could pay the salaries of several mangaka for a year) and anti-social on the consumer end so it's had a much worse time of it when all is said and done.

The biggest problem is that the socially stunted okatu who grew up watching little girl anime are the ones producing it now.
So it's gotten worse due to inbreeding.

I've never seen more clear evidence that most posters on /a/ don't even like anime and just watch it to be part of a secret club and belong to something because they lack any form of social life outside of this. "If people don't talk about it on /a/ it is pointless to watch it" perhaps yes if you watch anime just to be able to discuss it on /a/ and don't actually care about the shows themselves. I watch anime because I enjoy it, being able to discuss it on /a/ is a secondary thing.

This may not be related to NEETs per se, the American movie industry is suffering from something comparable. With a few exceptions, most major releases play recently play it completely safe by being adaptations of something that's already popular (comics, shitty chick lit) or remakes of something older, or simply rehashes of established names/franchises. As for French cinema, that shit is dead and burried. It's been decades since they've produced something worth watching.

The old giants of entertainment are happy to sit on their laurels and watch their money grow. I think that Miyazaki was right (was it him?) when he said that anime most likely won't survive in Japan. A lot of Japanese studios are already hiring Korean animators, it's only a matter of time before the entire industry as a whole moves to Korea and Coreaboos become the new Weeaboos.

It was Anno who said that, and it's pretty much bullshit. The Koreans are mostly in-betweeners, there's a much more dedicated consumer culture for this content in Japan (and those consumers largely hate Korea), and almost all of the studios, employees, companies, and interrelated industries are Japanese.
>>
>>135685130
The majority of people who hate any particular genre or time period in anything are completely ignorant with regards to the actual content.

Ok, which of the 40+ shows released in the past season are excellent? If you come up with a list of more than 5 to go in the category of excellent you probably have shit taste. I personally wouldn't put a single one of them in there. You get maybe 2 or 3 shows a year that could be considered excellent. Then another 10-20 that are decent. Maybe 20-30 that are watchable. The rest is just recycled trash. Just like in the past the majority of anime is trash. Cheaply made, poorly animated, awfully written trash.

>there's a much more dedicated consumer culture for this content in Japan
Absolutely true, but aren't most of those consumers the dedicated otakus who pretty much only want harem anime and cute girls doing cute girls so they can buy the overpriced BDs and figurines that sustain the industry? Korea's answer to anime may not end up being such a moneymaking machine as Japans endless cute girls doing cute things, but I believe that in terms of artistic value it will be a lot more worthwhile than the majority of what Japan produces in a few decades, perhaps exactly because it will conform to a much more widespread/mainstream-oriented market model.

I'm one of those guys who believes art comes from adversity, and perhaps precisely because Japan is so entrenched and dominant in the market up and coming Korean competitors will be forced to compensate for what they lack in quality.

Also, how big is the hatred of Nips for Korea? A lot of their beloved cute girls doing cute things shows have a shitload of Koreans working on them already, right?

What you're describing isn't the industry moving to Korea, it's a completely animation industry springing up in Korea that doesn't compete with anime for viewers. Also, I believe Noblesse is about to be the first webtoon to get animated, and that's not a sign of artistic anything.

> how big is the hatred of Nips for Korea
The Sakurasou anime changed some nip food in the LNs into a Korean dish, and everyone lost it and sent death threats and later 2ch voted on a list of dark times in anime or something like that and put that in the second-highest tier.

>With a few exceptions, most major releases play recently play it completely safe by being adaptations of something that's already popular (comics, shitty chick lit) or remakes of something old
That is literally how it has been in Hollywood for the past 100 years.
Go look up how many Wizard of Oz movies there have been.
Remember what a groundbreaking and original movie Al Pacino's Scarface was?
It's a remake of the 1932 Scarface, which was in turn inspired by the actual crimes of Al "Scarface" Capone.
Also, the original Scarface did the "X" means someone's about to die thing first that The Departed copied recently.

If by "cherry-picked" you mean prime examples to illustrate the point he's making then sure, I agree. It would be silly to give examples that don't really clearly show the issue.

People from 3x3 threads are generally the ones that started most of the old anime general type of threads that never used to exist to be honest.

You're conflating the causes, though; anime is dying because it has to pander to autist manchildren and horny teenagers to survive whereas hollywood films are too big to fail and as such they have to suck in as many casuals and dudebros as possible. The problem is almost the same but the causes and therefore solutions are the same.

It's the femininity. Both fictional and 3DPD women lack that quality as of the last few decades (bitter /r9k/ types have been saying this for years but both social sciences and popular opinion have picked up on this line of thought now), mostly because they try to act like men and most heterosexual men find masculine traits repellent in a potential mate.

Traditional Japanese animation before Tezuka was also fluid as fuck.

But guess what, disney animation is overly expensive, which is why Tezuka used limited animation in his stuff.

Yes, a lot of anime are pretty choppy, but this technique is the reason why Japan can make so many. Limited animation is more creative as it allows animators to have more freedom in what they animate without having to worry that much about their own budget.

Just to recap, Japanese animation is actually superior, because when you use that technique, it gives you time to focus on the art rather the animation.

Weight? I often feel that disney characters are weightless, and they just glide over the scenery. The movement is good only because they use so many fucking frames.

I watched some old disney stuff as a kid, like cinderella and snow white and yeah, they look expensive.

Money is the reason why Japan developed their own style. Look at Toei's Hakujaden. It's bleeding money everywhere.

People like to shit on cost cutting techniques like screen shakes or stock footage but they don't even realize that without those techniques, their precious anime might never make it out of the door.

That's a particularly qt one, though. Also, should Noa count as an 80's or 90's girl? OVA1 was '88 or so but the franchise continued its first run of anime and manga content into '93, is set predominantly in '98-2000 and had its last entry in 2003.

(Probably an unpopular opinion)
It's not that I hate old anime or anything but I definitely would not waste my time watching any classic shows because of the writing.
The literature of a country reflects the culture that it's author was exposed upon. The conservative, punky, and retro 80's and 90's is already one thing. But the zonophobic, and sexist culture of old Japan is just unbearable.
Just take a look at Utena for example. When it first aired, the nips insisted that there was no yuri in it despite the confirmation from Ikuhara himself. They treated it as nothing more than friendship between 2 girls. And when the movie arrived to fuck them all away, they harassed the author again by saying that he made the gay too much. (lel)
Now, look at Love Live, K-on and Touhou
It's entire franchise was completely barren of any signs of gay and yet it is one of the Japan's biggest yuri franchise. It is so big that even if the fujo's and haremshit franchise combined themselves, they still won't be able to light a candle to the yuri industry.
Kancolle and Girlfriend BETA had all the elements of a perfect harem but ALAS. Japan aimed it as yurifags. Gee, I wonder why

I haven't personally seen a high concentration of sexism in Japanese works, if anything, it's the opposite. Japan seems far more into realistically portrayed, self maintaining and "strong" female characters. Even hentai from the time has a lot of that, though their 3D porn is just the opposite. Which shows something about demographic of consumers and producers.

Nah. I just don't see it. I do think if you go looking for sexism, you're going to see it in all things. It's no more of an accurate perspective than mine. It no better encompasses the whole.

You mean shitty tsunderes.

As a permanent resident of Japan I'm gettin real tired of white teenagers posting about Japan's "xenophobia" from their basements like they know jack shit about anything.

No, I mean pretty much what I said. Rounded characters.

Could be selection bias on my part. What I described is what I like to see for characters, so it's what I've watched. I don't like two dimensional or "false" depth, which [...]dere very often is.

A lot of Westerners are pretty ignorant about Eastern culture.

I'm pretty ignorant about the majority of Eastern culture. I know buddhism created the concept of atoms around the same general time as Democritus, I know about obscure concepts like the rainbow body, and their warfare. But nowhere near a coherent framework of the whole deal. Most of what I think I know is probably at least part wrong, if not more.

What the hell do you expect?

Where do you live? Depending on history, people tend to be kinder on the countryside.
The UN reported that Japan does seem to be very xenophobic

You can even see this on shows like Symphogear and Zankyou Terror wherein there's subtle signs that Americans are evil for no apparent reason

We destroyed them militarily, their own emperor abandoned their bushido code and surrendered, we repeatedly launched air raids bombing major population centers and ravaging their cities, then dropped two nukes on them. After which occupying their country, disallowing them from having a real military, and still having military bases there to this day.

Which is all par for the course when you're in, and lose, a war. But nonetheless. They got westernized very quickly, and that sharp contrast is apt to leave a lingering bitterness when you look at their history and how their culture has worked.

That's what I'd guess is going on. They've always been a very closed country as far allowing outsiders to begin with.
>>
>>135697591
At least we don't write tons of fiction criticizing the culture of the East like the Japs do to the culture of the West.

I suppose. We do the opposite if anything, despite that their history is just as fucked up and miserable as us westerners could ever muster for ourselves. Genocides and all.

Do you want me to start listing the thousands of western television programs loaded with racism and national superiority throughout the ages? It would be shorter to list the programs that DON'T have some random ignorant stereotype or caricature inserted into them. Or would you rather I list Japanese series like Log Horizon, Planetes, or TTGL that are practically love letters to Western culture?

You go anywhere on earth and find racist elements, because every country on earth has their fair share of awful shitbags, that's just the way the human race is. Yet people go out of their way on the internet to single out Japan as some kind of rat's nest of xenophobia, despite the fact the average westerner gets all their information on Japanese culture from sensationalist garbage sites like Rocketnews or Sankaku because they can't think of the country as anything more than "that wacky place full of cartoony hive mind clones who all buy panties in vending machines".

Only for the short-sighted. In the long run they avoided getting BTFO by the commies, got a moral education on technology (this is extremely important, look at China importing literal canned air because of their pollution levels and the rest of east asia not being far behind and looking like landfills to boot - they didn't get the reality check that Japan did), have saved gorillions on defense non-spending over the last 70 years and have maintained their national, ethnic, social and spiritual identities more than any comparable nation I can think of. They've made out like fucking bandits.

That's not to say that they shouldn't harbor some ill-will about the war, but it was never a war that they were going to win in the first place and it probably saved them from something much worse.

Any classic Western literature containing Japs? Then we can have a WMT with the Japanese characters drawn with slanted eyes.

A major factor in the US is knowing we settled and started killing off the native americans. Most people don't realize what a good fight they put up despite lacking a writing system and being at a severe technological disadvantage. By the time we were driving the bison to near extinction to push the remaining tribes either to the south, or further west (mainly to lay the railroad), it was already pretty much done though. Just cordoning off and picking away at the strays.

There's this straight "white guilt" deal going around that paints Europeans as the mad apes that colonized, conquered, and waged war after war driving our technology to the point where we could wander on off to all those nice humans just living peacefully with nature. This is tied in with the old idea of "the noble savage". In reality their history is very similar to ours's, locally. Whether they ever would have branched out you can only postulate. It's likely Europeans just beat them to it for various ecological reasons. Interesting enough though, the Mayans appear to have also had reasonable advanced technology and mathematics.

Weird world out there. The idea of white guilt is itself almost racist. Like we went around and kicked those subhuman animals around like they were the size of our boot. I say "we" and "our", but that itself is a symptom of this shit. There is no we. There is no our. It's an illusion, and you could just as likely be in hell living in Europe as anywhere else. Hence why people left so often.
