ITT: Post animes that are lost into oblivion.
>there are people posting on /a/ RIGHT NOW who've never seen Urotsukidouji
Pic related was my second choice
Fucking dark bribe
I will never forget either one of these. I saw Legend of the Over-Fiend when I was a kid, it blew my fucking fragile little mind at the time.
Saikano still gets mentioned around here once in a while. It had some unforgettable scenes, and the manga end is a really nightmarish scenario if you think about it.
You don't know anime if you haven't watched this.
I know that there was an uncut version of the first 5 OVAs released on DVD Murrica, which is long out of print now. Most people are probably familar with the 2 movies (legend of the overfiend/ legend of the demon womb) which combined and butchered the first 5 OVAs of actual plot as well as the sexual content.
Years ago, there was an anime craze in Brazil and someone thought it would be a good idea to broadcast a dubbed, uncut version of Urotsukidouji on non paid, free access TV (at midnight, but still. That time slot featured anime, suddenly LOL Overfiend. And there were reruns). This probably is quite infamous here.
/a/ doesn't like to mention it because it reminds them of how they cried like a little bitch.
You wasted it like us, watching anime.
I watched the 3rd season of Yamato when it was airing in Japan (it was so successful in my country that they didn't wait for the American version and bought it straight from Japan. Suddenly Argo became Yamato and shit, it was hilarious).
I loved it at the time.
Babbys first nine-tailed fox fetish.
We had here this extinct TV network, Manchete (not the knife, the word means "news"), who was fond of anime before the boom. We got even several dubbed tokusatsu series from them.
Y'all so fucking underage on /a/. Don't even mention the classics that aren't meme tier anymore.
I bet no one on /a/ has watched this.
Raws exist but no one will ever sub it.
What are some fansub groups who work on older, unsubbed shows?

Hackers. Putting hentai on your computer since 1999.
It's too bad Hyouge Mono ended up getting subbed to the bitter end. It would've been great to have a modern legend of a god tier show that simply can't be understood by pleb tier weebs.
I have. Pic related is my counterattack.
I mean, my Japanese isn't nearly good enough for me to be comfortable watching without subs so I appreciated Hyouge Mono. You're right though, that kinda thing never happens anymore with HS and the various streaming sites.
Nice, I should have thought of that
No I haven't read it. I'm always tempted to pick up the manga after watching those types of OVAs. Blue Sonnet's been on my backlog for a while but I'm on an OVA binge this week and plan on finally watching it tonight or tomorrow.
Nope, don't see mine there. The image in this thread is the first off google. One I used before was a screenshot. Glad someone else obviously likes it, though.
Nigger, please. That ran on late night TV here in germany. It was cut though.
>Don't even mention the classics that aren't meme tier anymore.
That would be like bringing up escaflowne or el hazard. They were all mainstream hits in the west in the 90s.
Cat-eared Hikaru was on every single angelfire site back in the day.
Surely you must be capable of better articulation than that.
I don't recall. Back then I might have been a teenager easily impressed by an all-female main cast doing superpowered combat and a bit of grittyness.
Not that that has changed much
Doesn't mean it can't be talked about now? Apply the same to anything. "SBY was decades ago, we can't talk about that, but we can about the new one. P.S. - Love Live is my favourite anime!"
> mfw they believe me
Did they? Parents aren't always stupid you know. They just might have wanted to confirm that it was you and not someone else and then let you off the hook because it's embarrassing to talk about.
>Doesn't mean it can't be talked about now?
No, but it means it won't be talked about as much now. Inb4 "But people talk about Evangelion!", you should be able to tell that's an exceptional case, and it's supported by a combination of circlejerkers and constant newfags, because it is monstrously popular.
How many of you fuckers have seen Iczer-One, dubbed or subbed?
I saw that shit when I was 13 and just getting into anime. I had no idea it would get so fucked up. That was an interesting weekend, to say the least.
Lost and found
Also digital memory - be it complete shows on HDD or a screenshots folder - is biased towards recency.
Shows you've seen on TV or VHS are something that you're less likely to have on disk.
That don't deserve to be forgotten
Yet some people are still going to respond seriously and spoonfeed.
I'm probably one of the only ones who still remembers this. Not surprising since it was an original show which only aired on a pay channel (WOWOW), and I don't think it even averaged more than a thousand copies. Then again, Animax aired a lot of obscure stuff back in the day.
Good point anon.
It might be, but you need to remember that this was in 2002. Very few people were computer literate, and my parents didn't know much about the internet.
Lot's of good
and badshows from recent years got forgotten as well.
Good thing this masterpiece is still remembered
