70's was largely produced in America and as such designed to be as minimalist and simple as possible for cheap production, while operating under the idea of "kids don't give a shit about quality."
80's was largely produced by Japanese studios but followed Western designs.
90's was the same, but hearkened back to old designs because retro was in, and American companies had more direct oversight of what the Japanese studios did.
2000's was an extremely chaotic period of anime influences, traditional holdouts, and experimentation with flash and honestly I don't blame Harry for skipping over that decade.
2010's is produced in Korea and has far more direct input than ever before, and has fallen into a new, overall rounder style that emerged at the end of the 2000's chaos.
>This thread a-fucking-gain.
Pls m8, this poster >>78812709 actually got to throw out your little bait picture which I've seen plenty of times posted trying to defend that the past was da bezth!!!! like one of those FB posts that people don't care anymore for.
Anon... what have you done?
You've created a monster!
>Blah blah blah 90's
>Blah blah blah drop in quality
>Blah blah blah flash animation
Are we done? Okay cool.
>80's was largely produced by Japanese studios but followed Western designs.
Why aren't the Japanese allowed more control over western animation anymore? They do it better than any other country.
>Cartoons were cheap garbage for 20 years
>Cartoons given to Japs, spike in quality
>After 20 years, decide to cut costs and outsource to cheaper countries
>Once again becomes cheap garbage
I don't know what motivated companies to actually try to make good animation for that brief burst, but I'm glad I was there.

Akibahara happened. Suddenly, Japan jumped up from about 25 anime a year to over a hundred. Now, Japan is too busy animating its own shit and isn't the easy outsourcing area it used to be. If the same thing suddenly happened to Korea, we'd have to find yet another country to outsource to. Luckily, nobody cares about Korean animation.
Sci-Fi channel's Saturday Anime was a blessing.
Eastern animation will never know another age like the late 80s-mid 90s again. Moe waifu garbage and 700+ episode shonen carrot on a stick shows will endure for all eternity because lonely japs eat it up like candy.
This is actually sort of accurate, outside of OAVs and Theatrical releases we will never experience the same quality again due to the formulaic and budgeted techniques developed in the mid to late nineties. The west must evolve and pick up the pieces.

Image is full of shit. Disney TV had a pretty consistent style.

>TO THE GOOD OLD DAAAYS...
Spoiler: The Good Old Days were kind of shit too, you were just too young to have to worry about grown up stuff, and weren't old enough to micro-manage and study every aspect of your cartoons is every detail.

Nice try, nigga

Also the economy tanked and it's WAAAAAAY cheaper to do it like this in Flash.
I was half expecting this thread to turn into the beginnings of a flavor of the month with the 1980's kid when I looked at OP's image, but was pleasantly surprised it remained mostly argumentive instead of sexualized.
