What old anime have you been watching recently?
You ain't seen nothing yet.
I have actually.
I don't get why they go on about how ugly Anne is early on in the show, I thought they made her look cute in the anime. Maybe they were going for weird looking but still cute enough that the audience would like her but it always felt unjust when people were calling her ugly and such.
Mahoujin Guru Guru, it's been fun but the subs for the second season are horrible. Luckily it's not that hard to understand without subs.
I wouldn't assume it was well known but there is probably a fair number of people who will have seen it especially if they have an interest in animation, older anime or people working on anime.
I was watching the first episode of Genocyber last night, it is really quite shit.
Just finished Victory Gundam yesterday.
It was great.
pic related and Outlaw Star
Both were fun to watch
>Too bad modern anime is so shit, only a few quality shows
I don't think that is true at all. There are plenty of good shows, just way more shit ones that surround them than there used to be.
I've been watching Fushigi Yugi. Extremely close to be a masterpiece for me, the only problem is how quickly it changes from serious to comedy, I feel like it lessen the impact of the drama.
That show would be perfect if only Nadia would stop being so offensive to anyone who eat meat
It's literally in the file name. . .
God, Robotech was so fucking fun. even with all the cheesiness and QUALITY, you really appreciate it and it gave the show character, rather than sterile and offputing computer animation that everyone uses today
Just wait until you get to the island arc, you won't be calling it perfect anymore.
>are they all destroyed?
Is the whole show dubbed that badly?
badly? i think you mean great
it's a show about a pilot of transformer robots living in a giant transformer robot to fight giants who can shrink down to different sizes and are defeated by pop music. be honest with yourself, the bad voice acting is entirely more fitting than the original
>the bad voice acting is entirely more fitting than the original
Are you serious?
Kinnikuman in a variable fighter is much better than anything a dub could come up with.
I´m watching Victory Gundam atm, also enjoying Laughing Salesman, but it has been months since the last release. Does anybody know if Saizen is still alive? Their site has been down for days now and their last release was 02-01 this year.

I'm watching Heidi now, and after I finish it I want to start with Akage no Anne. Where can I find complete in good quality (bluray) with subtitles?
I watched few of Leji Matsumoto productions and so far i like Endless Odyssey the most
Endless Odissey is GOAT.
SSX is also very good.
Watch the Queen Emeraldas OVA and the Queen Millennia's movie if you haven't already.
The new raw that just went up a week or so ago is 2-3GB per an episode.
It is your choice between this
>Too bad Harlock movie from 2013 deprived him of any character.
Jesus christ don't make me remember that abomination.
I watched Akira last weekend. The animation was really jaw dropping and I liked the cyberpunk style, but the plot didn't exactly resonate with me. It seemed like Tetsuo was just being a psychopath for no good reason other than "Kaneda, you've been too helpful".
I also watched the "All Purpose Cultural Cat Girl Nuku Nuku" OVAs because one of the usenet posts in this thread https://archive.moe/a/thread/121004514/ said Nuku Nuku was his waifu. Nuku Nuku is extremely moe.
>Presence is the latest added video
this makes me happy.
I thought Endless Odyssey was pretty poor, seems to be the case with most newer leiji works. The Noo were just terrible.
AOMY + SSX line and Space Pirate are probably the best.
Don't see a reason to deviate from the main order. If you do for whatever reason just make sure to watch the OP first and ED last.
>there are people that haven't watched a pre 2000's anime that have the audacity to think they can post on /a/
>there are people who haven't watched a pre 90's anime
anyways right now i'm getting through the entirety of the original astro boy and god damn is it much darker then the later series.
Eh, yeah, you've got me there. But given my lack of steady internet and a proper PC; I'm using a tablet for both the anime and this post, AD is basically the oldest thing I have available and just wanted an excuse to mention it without shitting up the board with crap threads
Or maybe you're a fucking pleb.
The problem with most new stuff from Matsumoto is that the pacing is all over the place, and some of the late 00's stuff like Maetel Symphony, which I personally still enjoyed to a degree, were pretty shitty all around compared to stuff like SSX.
Even Queen Emeraldas had an amazing start and nosedives pretty fast in the last story.
Yet, I'm one of those few that enjoyed both Cosmo Warrior Zero and Gun Frontier even if they were objectively poorly handled.
>The problem with most new stuff from Matsumoto is that the pacing is all over the place
I find it's a certain lacking of characterization that was so strong in the earlier Matsumoto works.
Cosmo Warrior Zero was pretty bad, I think mainly because the protagonist was so weak in terms of character compared to the guy he was supposed to find and capture: The Captain himself.
I did like Gun Frontier but mainly because it was a decent western, lots of plot threads ending hard and fast (as they probably should on a frontier) and seeing Harlock as a side-kick to Tochiro was nice too.
I don't know how but the newer things just don't lack the spark in characters that the older series had, I wouldn't chalk this up to nostalgia because I've only watched these in the last 2 years or so. Ozma is a good example of how something is just missing.
>I think mainly because the protagonist was so weak in terms of character compared to the guy he was supposed to find and capture: The Captain himself.
Yup, I thought exactly the same thing.
One thing that I like about the new series is that as retellings/expansions of the original universe it's nice to get all the references to the older works, Maetel Symphony was chock full of those, but again, the quality of the work itself is pretty low from almost all points of view compared to the older works like GE999, the GE OVAs, SSX and a few other things like Queen Millennia.
Truly a pity since the designs and ideas behind those works are lamost always pretty good, Endless Odissey is perhaps the only high quality late series with all its problems.
For maximum inter-leijiverse goodness the best bet is to watch the three Galaxy Express movies, after you finish the main series of course. Despite being titled Galaxy Express it's more like fanservice if you love Harlock. They even have
the Yamatobriefly appear in the last movie if I recall right. Happens in DNA Sights too but terrible video quality there.
Still waiting on Live-Evil to finish subbing the Queen Millennia TV series, halfway there now.
>the best bet is to watch the three Galaxy Express movies
Yeah, as long as the crushing sadness doesn't make you want to kill yourself, the Queen Millennia OVA is guilty of that as well despite being beautiful.
Also, be advised that Queen Millennia TV is veeeeery long winded, possibly more than GE999 TV, the movie did a much better job at telling the story and developing the characters if you ask me.
But I mean, if you chugged all GE999 I don't think you'll have problems with that, do watch the movie though, it's great.
This Abashiri Family OVA was fun. The MC seemed quite a lot like Ryuuko.
I've seen the movie and it seems more like the blueprints of a nice story with good points. Some things do pop up far too quickly with not much explanation though, I think I'll enjoy the longer route of the TV series when it's finished being subbed.
110 episodes is only 36 hours or so worth of time though.
I've been trying to watch Galaxy Express 999, but I made it 30 some odd episodes in, and fucking nothing is happening. I have also been irritated by the fact that they have said multiple times "The train stops for no one, must always stay on schedule and must always have a ticket" then they break those rules every few episodes.
>I've seen the movie and it seems more like the blueprints of a nice story with good points.
The series doesn't really tell much more than that except maybe for the love triangles of Yukino/Millennia, and even then it's really extremely void melodrama due to the sole problem that it's too much of the same exact melodrama after a while, the movie concentrated all the important stuff very nicely.
Why do people hate it so much? Yeah it had a lot of reused animation, and Relina and Heero were kind of annoying, but Zechs was fab as fuck, and don't get my dick started on Treize.
Heroic Legend Arslan, Robot Carnival, Cyborg 009, Martian Successor Nadesico rewatch, Gundam Zeta (pic related)
I don't know how people say Sailor Moon is solid, the girls are absolutely lovely and the slice of life segments are adorable, comedy isn't too bad either. The monster of the week format is just an absolute chore though. It drags every good aspect of the show through the mud.
>and fucking nothing is happening.
Did you miss the part where
Tetsuro already achieves revenge on Count Mecha in the first episodeinstead of it dragging out?
>then they break those rules every few episodes.
Wait till the part where there's
a planet sized object lying in their way.
They really don't lie about the train not stopping. Of course they can't help stopping if grand cosmic entities like that witch who can freely control time stalls them.
I'll still give it a watch.
It will probably mainly interest me because it ties into 999 nicely. I already know that
Yukino is Maetel's mother, the future Queen Promethium.
That plot point alone sends chills down my spine for some reason, probably one of the more powerful threads in the entire leijiverse being set into motion will be enough to keep me watching.
>I'll still give it a watch.
You should, maybe you'll even like it more than me, and it's a good series anyway.
>That plot point alone sends chills down my spine for some reason
The truth is infinitely sad though, I literally cried like a bitch for Yukino, Maetel and Emeraldas when I watched the Maetel Legends OVA and Maetel Symphony, if you think the Millennia movie ending was sad you're in for much more suffering.
I have been watching exclusively pre-2000 anime the past few months because I previously neglected to do so.
Right now I am watching Gundam Wing, Escaflowne, and CCS.
CCS is so good.It Outstanding even. It is pretty impressive how a show meant for literal little girls manages to look better, and do drama, suspense, romance (sort of), and action better then most anime. Not to mention the great OST and the legitimately likable characters that actually change and develop.
Patlabor 2(after having finished the ova series and the first film).
She's the cutest. Absolutely adorable and lovely.
The way she skates to school is so cool too.
They stopped in the last episode I watched (35), I also remember an episode where someone took the kid's pass and got on the train and they were like "Nope, this pass doesn't belong to you" even though they've said a bunch of times that the pass belongs to whoever has possession of it.
I also don't like that there are a million white spots in their eyes at all times. I am shocked that no one mentions this.
Nevermind the enchanting white spots.
You're either a potato or a noodleman in leijiverse
Gundam Wing is one of my favorites.
I can't stand Endless Waltz, though.
Ideon is a great, crazy ride.
CCS is mindblowing, there's literally nothing wrong in that shit, everything's damn impressive.
>I also don't like that there are a million white spots in their eyes at all times. I am shocked that no one mentions this.
Shit's kawaii nigga.
Not as Kawaii as conductor san though.
Tetsuro saying his name is burned into my head.
It's inertia for sure. I don't know what it is but for long running shows once you get started it's just so easy to keep going, I think the really nice characters are the key.
Marathoning the last two arcs in Utena tonight then I might start Hokuto no Ken tomorrow, I read the manga a while ago so I'm looking forward to watch it, though it was a toss up between that or Future Boy Conan on what retro show I watch next. I was thinking of just getting Neo's BD rips for FBC since I have Live Evil's.
I didn't enjoy Diebuster as much as Gunbuster, maybe it needs another viewing from me but I thought it was far too silly.
Just how big was the Mazone caravan in Space Pirate?
How did Harlock even defeat them?
Their fleet seemed to come from Andromeda and was so massive it could actually been seen stretching from Andromeda to the Milky Way, there was so many battleships around their flagship that it looked like a star cluster from afar.
>I thought it was far too silly.
>Robots doing pushups, situps, and jumping rope
>I didn't enjoy Diebuster as much as Gunbuster, maybe it needs another viewing from me but I thought it was far too silly.
It lacks all those cool dials and actual mechanics seen in Gunbuster. It feels far less tangible and not as rough as the ships/mechanics seen in Gunbuster.
Yeah, Diebuster isn't a good as Gunbuster, I really didn't like the big reveal about Nono at all but the ending to 06, starting with Nono coming through that space rip hit me so hard, probably because I love TTGL a lot.
Also that epilogue is perfect.
Pretty fucking huge, not as dangerous as Promethium's cyborg fleet but it was pretty big for a race that was almost extinct.
>How did Harlock even defeat them?
Psychological pressure and superior tactics, Harlock made Queen Rafflesia and all the Mazone soldiers shit themselves when they realized they couldn't even scratch the Arcadia or hurting him, Harlock was also pretty fucking motivated by the fact that Miyu is living on Earth, he wouldn't let anyone touch her, if you remember
the part when Rafflesia porjects her Hologram on the Arcadia's deck to troll Harlock she gets scared shitless once he remembers about Miyu and makes that fucking awesome speech.
At some points the Mazone went batshit crazy and even tried to zerg rush Harlock with the only result of being fucking slaughtered.
Since we're talking about /m/ stuff, you guys should totally watch Macross Plus if you haven't already, great stuff.
I was playing Macross Triangle Frontier a few days ago and I had to rewatch that, even the CG is pretty decent considering how old it is.
I'm the opposite, Diebuster > Gunbuster for me. I love both, but I prefer Diebuster purely because it's sillier. They're pretty equal in terms of characters though.
>Has anybody put subs on those Macross II BDs yet?
I don't think so.
Ishtar is so fucking delicious though.
It's a bit different from the other Macross, good ideas but terrible, terrible execution, do watch it Anon, there are still some good things to see.
I'll wait for a subbed BD version to pop up, from what I've seen of Ishtar she really must be delicious.
Now I must go listen to Totsugeki Love Heart 10 times.
Yeah that's pretty much the same for me.
At the end of Gunbuster
It's not really sad because they still succeed, and the people they left behind on Earth were never really as central to the plot.
The fact that Nono sacrifices herself, and with her relationship with Lal'C makes for a much harder to take end.The epilogue also hits hard, and it only does that because Gunbuster was also so very good.
>end of Gunbuster wasn't sad
I don't know, that hit me like a fucking truck that
everybody they ever knew about was long dead and then being remembered after thousands of years.
It's a bittersweet ending for sure. It wasn't nearly as tragic as Windaria though, I was shaking with fits of rage and sadness after that. The only anime that really felt like it suckerpunched me.
Gunbuster's ending isn't as much sad as it is satisfying, to know that after 12,000 years people still remembered them feels so good.
Diebuster was the icing on the cake for sure though, that extra piece that makes it a tear jerker.
Probably the magical planet of space whales, it doesn't matter, listen to his song.
Come on anon.
I didn't like the change from Gunbuster's more realistic setting to the weird science fantasy setting in Diebuster. The living busters and weird magic abilities the pilots had didn't do it for me. I guess the way the coming of age story was told in Diebuster didn't resonate with me either for some reason. It was like Gunbuster if it were mixed with too much cuhrayzee and had looser storytelling.
I sure love the VHS sound quality.
Macross Plus has still got the best OST of any Macross series ever. The Sharon Apple EP remains a permanent fixture in my playlist.
Not saying it isn't sad, just it's not quite as sad. Bittersweet describe is better, as you said, Diebuster is also bittersweet, but with a heavier taste of bitter.
Pretty much this too.
On a separate note, I want to watch Casshern Sins, is it worth watching the original Shows and OVAs first?
>any Macross OST
>better than 7
Plus is really, really, really, really fucking haunting though. Very appropriate.
I have been reading/watching some Rumiko stuff lately. I read up to volume 11 of the Ranma manga, then watched the first BD box, and then read up to volume 22, which I believe is the where the anime adapts up to, not that it does it without a lot of filler/anime original stuff padding it out.
I also watched the first 20 something episodes of Urusei Yatsura before realizing I should read the manga first, but I am only one volume into it so far.
Also have some Ranma butt.
Eventually I will get to Maison Ikkoku as well.
You're right, my nigger.
After in the dark and Voices are the best thing ever.
YF-19 having that sexy design is the icing on the cake.
>is it worth watching the original Shows and OVAs first?
If you want to get all the references and understand how certain characters act or changed, yes.
It's also a pretty cool tatsunoko show, on par with Polymar.
I didn't expect you to respond intelligently.
I can see your point, but you have to remember how far in the distant future Diebuster is compared to Gunbuster to understand why the setting has changed.
Not only that, but the storytelling itself was just awful. Gundam Wing had this great blend of serious political drama and absurd melodrama that made it a blast to watch. Endless Waltz started out retarded and ended retarded. It was probably the little kid's fault.
Just finished this. It was alright.
Has anyone seen Spirit of Wonder?
A thoroughly charming OVA I rarely see mentioned anywhere.
>all time best tomboy
This is bullshit and I'm not going to stand for it!
if it doesn't have manly feels, i have a hard time taking it seriously.
If you want to get all the references and understand how certain characters act or changed, yes. It's also a pretty cool tatsunoko show, on par with Polymar.
Thanks anon, I'll do just that then.
I want to talk about how great this was and how attractive every female character in it was.
This reminds me of the number of people who proclaim Oshii to be the greatest director ever for his work on GITS or Patlabor but have never even bothered to check out Gosenzosama.
Gasaraki really should have stuck to being one thing. As it was it felt like multiple writers trying to take the show in different directions, the way it shifted from real robot to demon buddhist bullshit to ancient conspiracies and then ancient aliens was frustrating.
I hate to ask, but do you know anywhere to download this? I just had a look on nyaa and all I could find was a torrent with no seeders and one leecher.
This makes sense.
Sorcerous stabber orphen and Shadow Skill. Thinking about getting started with Slayers. I keep trying to get into it over the years, so maybe this time it will work.
Anyone got suggestions for Supernatural/Magical/Fantasy shows?
Muh favorite settings.
Most Tatsunoko shows were pretty violent and over the top.
Polymar is even more violent in certain episodes.
He did, it was a OVA with the usual edgy style of Tatsunoko heroes remakes.
Lodoss wars and Mahou Senshi Luis should definitely please you Anon.
I'm watching Turn A Gundam since EG's been releasing the BDs.
It feels really refreshing after watching all of the Gundam series before it, and I love the mobile suit designs.
My bad, I meant to type Louie.
Turn A is great regarding design, it's actually great regarding everything.
>Treize was a shit-tier villain
His philosophy was great.
Turn A is a pile of garbage. I will never understand why people like it.
>that 35mm footage
Holy shit, I really DO need to rewatch it
Not the anon you're replying to, but does anyone else find Lodoss kind of flat? It's fine and all, but the story is nothing unique and the characters feel like they lack reason to do what they do.
>The clothing design was great however
I am on episode 18 of Wing and this is pretty much how I feel. I am not really liking it but I keep watching for the sexy Oz uniforms and the Tallgeese.
>Turn A is a pile of garbage.
The anime does a poor job at adapting the novels, and yeah, it's not even meant to be unique, it's just a generational anime, it pretty much defined the fantasy/rpg scene in japan when it came out, pretty much everything regarding medieval fantasy was heavily influenced by Lodoss.
I like the way you have to stress it's an opinion.
The characterization was extremely poor, there was no good antagonists they just seemed to pop up one after the other and declare the gundam their lifetime rival before fading into obscurity, there was characters taking actions for the sole purpose of creating more dramatic effect in the show rather than letting things flow naturally.
Worst of all it even had that really annoying ancient mayan people arc thing going on. There's just so much wrong/boring/dull things about it and too little good things.
I often find that people who think Turn A is good have extremely low powerlevels too.
>I often find that people who think Turn A is good have extremely low powerlevels too.
Please refrain from saying such stupid things if you want people to take you seriously
>where'd you find it?
I'm Italian, we've had Casshern on TV since forever
/m/ might help you though.
>I often find that people who think Turn A is good have extremely low powerlevels too.
Get the fuck out you pretentious hipster.
>HA! I see you fell for my brilliant plan! I was merely pretending to say something stupid! GENIUS! What a fool you are to fall for my devious dastardly devilish diversion!!
>there was no good antagonists they just seemed to pop up one after the other and declare the gundam their lifetime rival before fading into obscurity, there was characters taking actions for the sole purpose of creating more dramatic effect in the show rather than letting things flow naturally.
Isn't this generally true for most Gundam series, especially Tomino ones? I wouldn't really say it's poor characterization, though, just a different style of storytelling.
>I often find that people who think Turn A is good have extremely low powerlevels too.
Wouldn't it be the opposite? Most people who appreciate Turn A have likely seen several or all prior Gundam series.
>I wouldn't really say it's poor characterization, though, just a different style of storytelling.
Nah, original Mobile Suit was nothing like this.
Despite piloting a war machine and fighting battles Rolan never seems to actually kill people, that should tell you all you need to know about Turn A.
IS THIS REALLY A FUCKING THING?!
ARE THERE REALLY PEOPLE WHO ARE THAT NIGGER STUPID THEY WOULD NOT WATCH, LISTEN OR READ MEDIA PAST A CERTAIN DATE?
HOLY SHIT THESE NIGGERS NEED TO DIE.
>It's a show along the lines of Elfen Lied, Claymore, Avenger or Yu Yu Hakusho, you know?
>Having anything to do with Turn A
Sometime I really think the internet's great fault is letting people forget about shame.
>Nah, original Mobile Suit was nothing like this.
Are you fucking retarded?
Blue Gender - shoestring budget sci-fi with a cool premise. It looks pretty awful majority of the time but the story seems solid and the more mature character behaviour definitely keeps me from dropping it. 8 episodes in so far.
Patlabor 7ep OVA - It's pretty awful. I'm 4 episodes in and struggling to continue, but I need to watch them so I could check out the movies, which are supposedly good.
>Are you fucking retarded?
Are you? MSG had Char who was actually a fair antagonist. The rivalry develops naturally rather than the guys in Turn A who just show up out of nowhere and are like "MY RIVAL" before disappearing into obscurity in 6 episodes and being replaced by another set of boring antagonists who won't be able to even phase the White Doll because the series lacks any real character volition or proper direction.
I think the frogs who made Code Lyoko must have liked Anne.
Again and Again
>MSG had plenty of one off, poorly characterized villains that were killed off or forgotten after a few episodes
The difference being that MSG actually had CHARACTERISED antagonists as opposed to Turn A which really has nobody, oh there was that one guy who was all pro-war because.. he loves war for the sake of war, absolutely boring.
>and it shares some dragging arcs as well. Remember salt?
MSG drags on whenever it's planetside, it does not do ground scale campaigning well but the space based episodes were always the best.
The simple lack of grasp on what characterization really is and being able to read a bit further in is what makes me point out that people who think Turn A is good have low powerlevels, they just haven't developed enough to realise that it's actually bad.
So you're clinically retarded if you think 0079 and Turn A have ANYTHING to do with each other when Turn A is meant to be the fucking antithesys of 0079.
>MSG had Char who was actually a fair antagonist.
Yeah, sure, ambushing people and betraying your allies is fair now.
>The rivalry develops naturally rather than the guys in Turn A who just show up out of nowhere and are like "MY RIVAL"
BECAUSE IT'S A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT STORY.
Holy shit, one story is about war being lived directly through the eyes of a child soldier whereas Turn A is a series where war comes out of fucking nowhere and Loran is not even a pilot, he's a fucking bumpkin.
And there's no talk of rivalry whatsoever in any place, not even between the moonrace's two factions.
Stop watching anime you lobotomized little shit, you have the IQ and attention span of a closet and yet you shit about low powerlevels, get the fuck out of /a/.
>So you're clinically retarded if you think 0079 and Turn A have ANYTHING to do with each other when Turn A is meant to be the fucking antithesys of 0079.
You're right. MSG actually had some good points to it so by being the opposite Turn A must strive to have absolutely zero good points.
>BECAUSE IT'S A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT STORY.
Besides the point.
>And there's no talk of rivalry whatsoever in any place, not even between the moonrace's two factions.
Except there is, all those boring soldiers who come out of the woodwork and are all "The white doll is my rival!" only to forget about it in 6 episodes.
>Stop watching anime you lobotomized little shit, you have the IQ and attention span of a closet and yet you shit about low powerlevels, get the fuck out of /a/.
You should have seen at least 100 anime series before watching Turn A, just so you can accurately gauge how bad it is. If you have no background I don't blame you for enjoying it, just watch more and then reflect on how it's actually bad.
>It's a completely different show
>Besides the point.
you appear to have mental retardation. please see a medical specialist.
Holy shit, we have a tough guy here.
Please give your FB as well, master.
Re watching Lost Universe
I think it's sort of unfair to compare villains to Char, since he's one of the best antagonists in anime. While I agree that there really isn't that strong of an antagonist in Turn A, it doesn't make the show bad, since it's really trying to do something different from MSG. It's more about trying to find compromise in war and has a lot of strong, idealistic characters that make up for the lack of clearly defined villains. Also, the setting is incredibly fresh and the way previous Gundam series are implemented in the lore is great. I really don't understand how you can think it's a bad show if you're a fan of Gundam.
>It's more about trying to find compromise in war
There was a war? Hardly anybody in Turn A dies and the protagonist is a idealistic goody-two-shoes who can do no wrong and never has to dirty his hands.
It's not really an opinion when you objectively dissect why a show is bad, point out these crucial and laid-bare facts to people and show them.
If you think that no anime can be objectively bad please watch this video to know why you're wrong and be more educated:
I even watched Devilman Lady too, it was an interesting take on the series as a whole.
The only thing your words objectively dissect is your credibility.
What about his argument is ignorant? He's right but cognitive dissonance prevents you from seeing this, it makes you uncomfortable doesn't it?
Tonight I got Dragon Century, New Dream Hunter and Leda on my list of things to watch
I'm just going to assume that you're trolling now, since I don't want to derail this thread trying to explain art theory to someone who clearly doesn't have the capacity to understand.
aged like a fine wine.
Watching the different cutey honey series is like timetravel. It has the best and worst of the 70s, 90s and 00s.
I couldn't find the original so I am watching the remake in its place
Please refer to my post here to raise your powerlevel in the future: >>121838664
Tried to watch arcadia of my youth with a friend. we had to stop half way through because he thought it was too damn depressing. Well that, & they threw like 5 different names of planets & aliens at us so it was hard for him to follow.
Damn shame. Nobody seems to have the patience for a depressing space epic these days.
31 yr old here and even if it's not necessarily accurate to call some pre-2000 anime "old" there is certainly a gulf of difference between the majority of pre-2000 anime and what came after due to the move to digital around the early 2000's. So, I can understand why people make the "old" distinction with pre-2000 anime even if it's something from 1998 because, the hand drawn shows were something quite very different looking than the sort of stuff we've got since the early 2000's.
There are actually bd raws on nyaa if youcan be bothered to combine your own subs the CA subs are floating about already extracted .
If you liked Re: Cutie Honey for its whackiness, you will love the original. If you liked it more for Honey's and Nat-chan's relationship, you won't find anything like that in the original.
I also fuckin love the Endless Odyssey, too. I watched the Harlock series and I liked it, especially the Mazone girls. But the story was also good, not just the alien girls.
>watching arcadia of my youth before space pirate
I mean it can be done but the crux is that watching space pirate will give you a grasp of Harlock's character, a very big point to AOMY
it does play a major role in Re, so if you haven't seen anything else from the franchise, there could be some wrong expectations.
Though yuri is -aside from Cutey Honey flash - always part of the series is some form or another. pic related.
On one side Harlock has the Earth where you can live in bliss and not ever have to lift a finger and on the other he has an entire race of lovely alien women who are all perfect.
urge to penetrate... rising.
It could be. It could not be.
Leijiverse is weird like that, but the general tone of Space Pirate is that everybody on team 'pirate' seems to have died or buggered off, leaving only Harlock and Mayu.
Space Pirate defines Harlock for this reason though.
>doing this to my dick so early in the film
Would it be alright to divide anime into three eras as so:
The retro era (as I will call it, anyway) which is pretty much the beginning of anime going through the majority of the B&W anime shows (though I think there are certain color anime shows like Speed Racer that show be considered part of this era)
I consider most of the 70's output of anime to be a sort of gap era or at least an inbetween point/a crossroads.. that is, a lot of anime from the 70's can easily be argued into both the retro and old eras. However, to me..
The old era officially begins in 1979 with the airing of the original Mobile Suit Gundam and this lasts until the beginning of the 21st century when the move to computers are made.
The 60s was kind of that weird decade where B&W and color shows ran alongside each other until the former was eventually phased out when color TVs became more widespread. The first color TV anime was Kimba the White Lion to my recollection.
What to watch? OVAs of '95 or Movie of '96.
This is such an unnecessary comment. What you're trying to say? That it's not a masterpiece? Well most anime aren't.
You know what else? The sky is blue.
I think they're both the same. The film just trims it.
I saw the film, Poly and Dual Matrix, so perhaps I'm not the best person to ask about the OVA.
I loved it, though. So I think I might actually download the OVA today.
Thank you good sir, now my retro anime weekend can be a fulfilling one
Yu-Gi-Oh season zero gave me nostalgia for the 90's
>Kimba the White Lion
I need to pick that up so that I can say that I watched it.
Utena. I think the only pre-2000 I have on my backlog is Gunsmith Cats. Oh, and the old old GAINAX shit, wings and whatnot.
>wings and whatnot.
Tylor was great.
>CCS is so good
>CCS is mindblowing
Seriously? I actually, yes, I think I watched some of it back when I finished xxxHolic, and I remember dropping it. Are you guys serious?
Up there with Rose of Versailles as one of my all time favourites. Has great rewatchability too.
