What retro anime are you watching right now? I just finish KOR and I really enjoyed it it. I am in love with the art style of that time in anime. I'm now watching Urusei Yatsura episodes between OVA's and movies.
I've actually blanked out on one movie I watched a while back - it involved a young guy driving down the coast with a younger girl, they had an orb of some sort and had no idea what to do. I tottaly forget the name of it, anyone know?
>loved 80/90's aesthetic discovered cream lemon "anime"
watching ranma 1/2 right now
haven't really watched anime or read manga for about 10 years now and I've recently rediscovered it
I remember reading the mangas like 15 years ago, good memories
>it involved a young guy driving down the coast with a younger girl, they had an orb of some sort and had no idea what to do. I tottaly forget the name of it, anyone know?
Think Red Hot Chili Peppers and Priss Asagiri recording an album together. What could it be called?
I love the 32/33 stuff, although I don't think it's very easily accessible to a person trying to get into it today.
I hate the '40 stuff, but it's probably much easier to digest.
So you better watch the OVAs, or I'm going to post a reaction image of a cute girl looking at you with disgust.
I'm watching Macross right now, it's honestly pretty
The plot is some idealistic anti-war the power of love bullshit, and Minmay is a whore. Everything else is fine though.
I'm also watching Macross. I just got up to the part where Minmay's faggot cousin shows up. I'm enjoying it quite a lot so far but I wish that Hikaru would speak up about his and Minmay's relationship.
I haven't quite gotten around to watching it yet, but at some point I downloaded this interesting seeming set of films
anyone seen them?
Does anyone else watch shows without binging? Instead of just marthoning one show after another, I watch about 4-5 older ones at once, just like I do with the currently airing anime. I watch 1 episode of a show a day, maybe 2 if the action is really going strong. all together I might watch 5 or 6 episodes of anime everyday, so over the week I can easily keep that pace up.
I tried just burning through shows, but since a lot of older stuff is like 50-100+ episodes as the norm it can feel like a blur and i think it doesn't do the shows justice, you can't really digest anything.
Macross didn't suck
Look, I can post my opinions without any sort of argument too
Haven't watched anything recently except for rewatching the Golgo 13 movie. Gotta say it's probably the best 80's movie. Except for that helicopter scene.
Anything interesting got released ecently that also has raws up? I'm still waiting for the Adventures of Ganba. Can't even find a non BD torrent for this one.
Watched Wicked City with a friend of mine yesterday, she liked it a lot, we've been making spider vagina jokes all day.
Today I'll show her Demon City, not sure if she'll like it as much because she said Taki is pretty badass.
I also plan on rewatching a lot of classic Madhouse stuff with her, there's a lot I forgot and she realy got into it after I gave her my Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust DVD.
Funny, that movie isn't Patlabor The Movie.
I watched Macross Plus last night. I was blown away by the visuals but I think the plot and characters were not good. I feel like it was hyped up to me as something that it really isn't. I was really expecting a larger-scale masterpiece and while I got that visually, the content itself was lacking. It felt like how when I watched Gundam 0083 for the first time
>the content itself was lacking.
Why do you say that though?
I felt it was a nice simple story with an actually decent love triangle, I didn't really like the justification of Guld being an asshole when he was young because muh Zentradi genes but it was nice nonetheless.
Sure, if you went in expecting Angel Egg with mechaplanes you were bound to be disappointed, but I think it's pretty good for what it is, much better than most Macross series when it comes to relationships actually.
Well I'm watching Lupin 2015 atm and will start on classic Lupin afterwards
Is there some sort of guide as to what Lupin movies and specials are any good because there's a lot of them and I've only ever seen Castle of Cagliostro and the Last Job of which both were good
Re-watching Kodomo no Omocha since I never finished it back in the day. I'd forgotten how good it is, plus the pacing is crazy fast. Surely they can't keep this up for 102 episodes.
Are you really going to let your preference of director cloud your judgment here? I expected better of you, anon.
That's the thing, I didn't care for the love triangle aspect at all. I think because I was expecting something significantly more dramatic than
I just sealed away the memories. Also from what I read, Myung wasn't even raped.The stuff with Sharon in the second half feels very disconnected from the first half.
I mean it's not bad or anything. I just was told it was the magnum opus of Macross and I'm still finding that to be DYRL
>browsing through wiki atricles on anime
>resisting the urge to download the entire madhouse catalog pre 2000
I have the hdd space easily and the internet but goddam, that is just pointless backlog
That's cheap though, Dezaki was a monster when it came to basically everything, Oshii has very good ideas but Dezaki was in his own league.
>I didn't care for the love triangle aspect at all
I see, and yes she
I agree that the whole Sharon part came a bit out of nowhere though, it would have benefitted by having a bit more exposition.
is bakabt/nyaa the best non-private sources for anime? bakabt especially seems to be very good for older stuff, I have rarely not been able to find something I want there, aside from there autistic do not upload list.
I've picked up pic related
I like boxing anime but Joe is an insufferable douche
But I keep watching
I finished Lupin III Part 1 (Green Jacket), really enjoyed it. Watching Part II soon, and when I finish that I'll watch the first two or three movies, then Part III. I'll continue with Gasaraki for the rest of the day, though.
I'm also in the middle of Tekkaman, though I'm taking it slowly, since the main appeal of it for me is the kickass version of the main theme that plays whenever he fights (and the fights are great as well, incredibly creative), and I'm afraid if I marathon it then it'll lose it's impact and I won't enjoy it that much.
I read the manga but I forgot most of it, one of the reason I'm watching it is to see how they turned a 3 volumes manga in a 39 episodes anime. I have to say it's a great, the only weird thing is that most episodes feel like the second half of an episode and the first half of another.
As a 12 year old bursting into puberty, I used to watch this back when SyFy was SciFi.
Also, Angel Heart. Usually, sequels don't live up to the original; but Tsukasa Hojo handled it well.
Watching both Lupin and Sherlock, that's the way to do it well.
Has any of you read the light novels?
Also, why do they cost less than a buck on Amazon?
Obviously different folks different tastes but I'll never get how people like this show so much. Probably because I was expecting something different I ended up thinking it was pretty shit.
>tfw 90s anime is considered mammoth shit now
Watching first series now. Ryo is hotter than the women he's chasing.
I had a list someone posted but i lost it.
According to my criteria the good ones i watched are;
Secret of Mamo
Seven Days Raphsody
Jigen Daisuke no Bohyou
Also that weird pilot called Lupin VIII.
Old OVAs are what I watch most of the time. I also like to go vhs hunting at the local fkea market. Picked up Kimera last week, gay as hell. Pic related is fantastic, though, and I watch it every Halloween. Probably my favorite OVA next to Battle Royal High School.
>that one kid you used to buy poorly taped VHS OVAs from at the park in the 80s
Yeah, the Sharon Apple stuff really brings it down. I was originally looking forward to it because I heard "AI goes rogue" and thought "Oh that sounds really interesting" but the way it's done is not only pretty lame but it's completely disconnected from how the OVA starts out
But Aoi is the best girl
Marathoned Generator Gawl yesterday. Nice little Sci-fi series. Everything the trio has done up till the ending feels a bit pointless aside from the power of friendship. I'm a sucker for transforming into a full armor suit akin to Kamen Rider.
Watched Nadesico prior. I enjoyed the lighthearted tone and the mecha parodies, but I wish there was a little more actual mecha in it. Ryoko best girl.
This is going to be my second time trying to watch Macross 7. I watched it a bit like maybe 5 or 6 years ago and I couldn't get past the fourth episode. Now that I'm more experienced in anime, I may be able to like it this time.
I was wondering why I couldn't find any official art of Basara's Valkyrie with it in Battroid mode and now I realize it's because of that fucking face
More like my local Games Workshop.
It took me about 13-15 episodes before I finally got over how dumb it was. I fucking hated Basara at first and well, like most people, I was practically singing along before long.
Watched this the other day. Nice source of unintentional comedy and reaction faces but that's about it.
None cant even remember the last time I watched for nostalgia maybe it was gundum
I'm watching Legend of the Galactic Heroes because /a/ said it is great.
100% sure that's California Crisis you're thinking of. How could you possibly blank on that top tier soundtrack.
>I'm sure I can stomach all that horrible animations.
Orange Road's TV anime had its dull moments, but it was worth it overall. The movie is fantastic.
Those OPs and EDs are the best too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cI56z5C2elc
Of course, and maybe after original, Z, ZZ and CC, I'm not sure between Macross or Space Battleship Yamato.
I remember I watched the first episode of 2199 and I really liked it, I honestly don't know why I didn't watch the entire thing.
Its the guy who did Akira basically having free range to do whatever the fuck he wants. Some of its good, other bits are shit, but its amazingly experimental the whole way through and he does some really neat stuff with the "camera" movements.
Take a break between Zeta and ZZ, you'll thank me later
Original Yamato is different from 2199 in terms of pacing and that Leiji Matsumoto feel is completely gone too. I liked both but I can see why some people would get bored with the original.
>he things the name of the compilation is one of the movies
>probably misunderstanding magnetic rose
>he unironically thinks cannon fodder is more interesting than a masterpiece like magnetic rose
the M-66 sisters are wonderful. Shirow was directly involved in the animation on this OVA and it shows. It was amazing even with its moderate budget.
by comparison, Koukaku no Pandora makes me want to find him and stab him in the neck.
I watched Golgo 13 last night. Very stylish and atmospheric but outside of the action scenes I wasn't feeling it super hard. Solid action movie though, watch it if you're into girls/violence/cars. What'd you guys think of this one?
>Koukaku no Pandora
Yeah, I don't know what the deal with that is. I know Shirow just wrote the story but it makes me wonder how much creative control he had. Or if he did had full control, I'm wondering what caused him to make the manga.
This way you got to find out for yourself.
I forgot the name of this anime
>some guy works in a pharma company
>he has a particularly bad cold
>someone tells him to use the new medicine which is in development as in the boss's office
>he finds a jar full of weird-looking medicine
>he swallows it and then goes to sleep
>he wakes up and feels as great as ever
>the boss realizes that he somebody touched his jar, but it's too late
>everybody in the building is knocked out by the time the guy wakes up
>the guy goes to the boss's office and presses the panic button which connects him to some authorities
>he goes outside

>soldiers are knocked out
>america saves the day by sending men in spacesuits
>the americans capture the dude
>they go to receive their congratulations
>but what a twist: it's that gas dude
>he intoxicates the government HQ people
I remember it vividly but I don't remember the name.
70s > 80s
Thanks for info.
For now i can tell that they fucking know how to use their best music pieces in crucial moments. It's a shame that in new anime opening songs are never used, except maybe last episode.
Also that counter with seconds left to villains death is badass. So simple idea, yet so fucking cool.
Pollyanna will give you diabetes, I assure you.
>Not trading VHS tapes over the internet.
I need to keep watching Kimagure. I started watching it, but stopped after three episodes because of cringe. But the original OVA was really good, so it's probably worthwhile. But I don't like supernatural things either, with both that and cringe it gets a bit hard to watch, despite its good points.
I read the manga years ago and it just seemed like an average love-comedy. The ESP thing seemed completely tacked-on and unnecessary. Maybe the anime elevates the source material somehow, I don't know.
MY nigga and his bitch
Pic related and is my favorite character on the show.
Dirty Pair, Aim for the Ace! 2 and Anne of Green Gables.
Anne is a bit too slowly paced for me to sit through all 50 episodes of it but I'm enjoying the other two a lot.
And I've always casually watched Lupin the Third on and off. It's not really a show I can marathon but it's my go-to when I'm in the mood for a Saturday morning cartoon.
Watched 1 and 2, didn't finished. Like it so far, but the production was a complete mess, they shifted art design completly from part 1 and 2 making ti looks loke 2 diferent anime
Hard to say. Not the second, at least, excluding the intro. I can't tell, none of them really felt like the best. The last one was interesting in the movements, but the sparkly with the two girls was really nice. And the first one too, I liked the ending. It took a bit long to get started, but it was very interesting.
