Do any of you have trouble getting into older anime? I seem to have several problems with what I've seen so far. First of all, to me a big problem is the lack of good adult-oriented series. This doesn't even mean R-rated series, just ones aimed at adults (like Mushishi is seinen but is rated 13+). The are very few series like this, so it's mainly OVAs and films, which are incredibly gory and edgy most of the time, I mean stuff like genocyber, cyber city Oedo, wicked city were just a drag to watch when you compare them to newer stuff. There are some more adult oriented series like captain harlock or fist of the north star, but those are rather cheesy and really uneven. I must admit, some mecha series stand out here, but you usually have to wait for half the series to pass so it abandons the quirky humor and characterization (gundam, patlabor).

The children series are a whole different matter, I remember I watched many of them on public tv like cities of gold, treasure island, moomins and so on. But when I watched other stuff which didn't hold nostalgic value to me it usually turned out to be rather mediocre.

Overall there are a few things worth note, I mean ghibli movies (Nausicaa especially), Patlabor movies, a few Gundam series, Votoms or Logh. But I can easily understand that people can find more stuff to enjoy from the second half o the 90s and on wards.

tl;dr version: Post 95 anime is better than pre 95 anime.

No, as I am not a faggot.

Great thread you got here, OP.

I don't watch old anime that much but Tarakajima (Treasure Island), Cobra, Votoms and Dougram are great, also I heard that Galaxy Express 999 it's really good.

Harlock is seinen, Fist is 17+ rated.

Topkek, your opinion is in contrast to those people that said "waahh modern anime a shit" or "moeshit kill anime waahhh"

Note the "shonen".
Fist of the North Star is also shonen. 17+ doesn't mean shit because that's obviously not a Japanese rating.

You are a retard.

And yest when you ask them about their favorite anime, most will point out shows from the second half of the 90s and 2000s.
>>121043200
kill yourself.

>>121042743
Galaxy Express has like 10% god-tier episodes and the rest is ok, mediocre not to mention often time repetitive.
>>121043346
My bad, doesn't effect the argument that much.

I tried reading the manga but only the first 9 chapters are translated. I was planning to get around to the movie sometime but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

So. Shounen is a gender, seinen an age group. What's wrong with teenage boys. That's right seinen fags, TEENAGE.

Anime is basically story and as long as the anime uses its medium well, any story can be appreciated.

You must think male = shounen and female = shoujo right? A few quick Google searches goes a long way bro
>>
>>121044007
Shounen is for boys. Shoujo Girls. Seinen teens. It's not rocket faggotry.

Z Gundam seemed so weird to me, I liked it, but sometimes it was like the characters din't make any fucking sense.

It's all a matter of acclimation, OP. Different tones which you are unfamiliar with. Watching stuff like VOTOMs (1983) and Key the Metal Idol (1994) definitely left a poor impression in the beginning. However, as I watched more series (LoGH (1988), Gunbuster (1988), Space Adventure Cobra (1982)) I really began to appreciate old series and their pacing. MD Geist (1986) was a masterpiece of writing and pacing. Golden Boy (1995) was incredibly hilarious. Riding Bean (1989) has vastly superior pacing to many modern anime. And so on. Even the bad eggs (Angel Cop (1989)) were "so bad they're good" due to how well they fit the era, I guess. What I'm saying is, just stick with old anime, as you grow your appreciation for them will too.

THOUGH! Post-95 anime absolutely is good too. Inou Battle (2014) couldn't have been made back then, and I love it. Utena (1997) , Madoka (2010~), Fate/Zero (2011) were all incredible. I think you've just watched so many recent anime, you're too acclimated to them.

tl;dr it's all a matter of opinion, but try sticking with it.

Also, OP, I'm being sarcastic about MD Geist being good, please don't watch it with high expectations
