90's definitely is the worst of the 4.

Hard to choose which is best though.

>>135789470
The 2020's.

What if we had the good shading of 80's and the modern look of today's anime?
>>
>>135789470
80=2010>2000>90

Nothing can beat Hyouka.
>>
80s > 90s > 2010s > 2000s

I like anime regardless of when it was made but I really hate the art style and character designs of most anime these days. Though there are exceptions, they are few and far between.

Why can't they be popular again? I don't care how much you refine your titillating character designs, you can't make up for a lacking personality. Confident and fun female leads or MCs are where it's at and where it's been at for a couple of decades now.

I think art quality and direction is a lot more important. Pic related for instance, Planetes, aired in 2003/4. This is a bit of a dark age for art due to the transition to digital animation but it looked exceptional.

The late 90's are always more like the 00's.

10s and 80s are both appealing in radically opposite ways, 90s artstyles in general are an era of utter horror. Just like the early 00's universally look shit because of early digital.

Mostly accurate. 70s and 80s aesthetics were great, but actual quality and motion tended to suffer. Current style isn't bad, but insists on degrading itself with ugly color palettes and bad cg. OVAs from 85 up until the death of cel animation are still the best.

Early 00's were a nightmare I'm glad we woke up from.

The early 2000s was an unfortunate time defined by the awkward transition between traditional, cel animation and CG. Just watch Greed Island for a demonstration. No one likes it.

Early 2000s immediately causes me to think of Air.

Any show that can be shoehorned into a "decade style" has objectively mediocre-to-shit art direction. There are great examples from every era. This is common knowledge.

That's not true at all, you can assign all art to certain periods of time because people, culture and technology are constantly changing.
