Kind of hard to go through ZZ for some reason. Probably because it's not anime.

It's not. It's 720p, & I times the audio & subs on myself from my DVD.

There's BD rips for the OVAs too, but don't bothewr. They cut off 25% of the image to make it 16:9 for retards who wouldn't buy it because of the black bars.

Picture related. Notice how the top & bottom of the image is missing.

I have a hard time enjoying series before ~85. Original Gundam was probably amazing for it's time but it hasn't aged well, but I'm merely saying that because I didn't enjoy it. I dropped Rose of Versailles as well.

Hokuto no Ken was great although repetitive, not much of it was apparently made before 85. Late 80's had shows even an early 90's guy like me could enjoy easily. Like War in the Pocket and Gunbuster. I should probably give Zeta Gundam a second chance one day, dropped it after ~20 episodes because Kamille was annoying.

As boring as it may sound LoGH is still my favorite show. And I'm unsure as to whether I prefer the artstyle of the earlier episodes or the one in the Gaiden(which were partly made as late as the beginning of 2000).

Maybe I'm just a born pleb.

The characters are usually fine, but the backgrounds often have randumb smudges thrown in to make it look (more realistic?) but only make the surface look dirty. Everything in old anime simply looks dirty, like someone had a mudball fight recently.

Take >>123564726 for example. That rock wall looks dirty. They added unnecessary details that detract from the scene. Also, so many hard lines on the character's clothing isn't needed, just add shadows without lines or don't do anything at all.

I am demanding a more natural image. Simply adding more, completely random, smudges does not make a background look more realistic. You should add the maximum amount of detail you are capable of ACCURATELY reproducing, no more. Random smudges are no more than useless noise.

12 years old is pretty old for media, I would say. Eventually, I think people are going to have to realize that "old anime" isn't a constant, what old is changes with time. Soon enough, it'll unquestionably include 00s anime. I mean, in 2008, Eva would've been considered "old", yeah?

>>123567975
Hmm, I don't really get where you're coming from, not with that example. The rock wall is painted in a way to abstractly simulate the rough texture of rock while using shadows to give it depth. It's "dirty" because it's rock. Rock is dirty.
>>
>>123569388
>"old anime" isn't a constant, what old is changes with time.
There's undoubtedly epochs though. 2000 marks an important change because it was when people started producing digitally (very badly).
So these threads are more about cel animation than about just old animation.
>>
>>123569388
Old is contextual to the media itself though not to how close it is to current date. Anime has been made for TV for 50ish years I don't think defining everything made past the last X number of years in that context is particularly helpful. People tend to think of the 2000s as the last major change in anime production the switch to digital was occurring around then as cel animation died off.

OK, I really hate the example posted, but as I do not have a lot of old anime, it will have to do. These smudges are meant to simulate what? Shadows? Dirt? I cannot tell. There's not enough detail in them to tell what they are supposed to be. They added detail, but not enough detail. It winds up being either random noise, or worse in other cases, makes the shot look dirty. It looks like some artist with dirty fingers smudged the drawing.

It's ugly, and I hate it.

It is disgusting to me that young people just getting into anime seem to reject anime made before 2008 or so offhand on the grounds that it is "old"

I have heard from my friends still attending the community college I graduated from that the anime club screened Wolf's Rain and got a lot of the 18 year old freshman upset because it was "too old" and not from a current or recent season

Just because you're an unsophisticated Australopithecus doesn't mean I am. And it's fine if you like the older style. It rarely detracts from the plot anyways. I just find it jarring.
>>123570406
Those smudges represent nothing. It would be one thing if the entire anime was done as a water color, but to have such a low-level of detail in their background then a higher level of detail for the character is just retarded.
>>
Utena was the last retro thing I watched but I liked it a lot though it got a little ridiculous towards the end but still a great watch for the visuals alone.

I might watch Hokuto no Ken soon since I read the manga a while ago but didn't really enjoy the last couple arcs after Raoh.

It's the half-assed approach to detail, like adding color, but not texture. I find texture to be a lot more important in a surface. I'd rather a black-and-white with lots of texture than a bunch of color with no texture, in most cases. Those blobs are without texture.
>>123570620
They really don't. There is nothing random about shadows falling where they fall. And dirt tends to fall inside of the shadows for a very logical reason. The top of a rock is seldom dirty, or in shadow.

For a better example of old anime done right, see Hokuto no ken. EVERYTHING is dirty there. Dirty is the style choice. The characters are dirty, the objects are dirty, the backgrounds are dirty. It's a grungy, post-apocalyptic world.

Please see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texture_%28visual_arts%29 for a description of what texture is. The smudges are in lieu of texture.

I had no problems at all during the LEGO movie. And if there's too much stuff going on in the background, perhaps they should equally remove texture and smudges. Leave them in balance with one another. >>123571079

What is up with this stone? Why doe sit have vertical striping? It's not an inherent quality of the stone, as it carries on from one stone to the next, so it must be something that was applied after the stone was erected. But why the huge variation in color? It makes no sense. Better they just kept it all mostly uniform, or go the extra mile to actually make the stone individually variant. Am I seriously the only one that automatically picks up on this stuff and it just ruins the shot?

The detail isn't there for it. That would have to be highly polished stone to have it be that smooth. In which case, I doubt there'd be that type of weathering. Also, the top piece of stone has no such weathering. It's half-assed, at best.

Autism is one thing,
but his autism is cupled with a load of ignorance of what real stones look like. So it is likely this person was never outside .

You haven't actually read anything I've posted, have you? As long as they add detail uniformly across both texture and shading/color it's fine. It's adding all of one or the other that is jarring.

Subs or raw? There are raw encodes that were uploaded somewhat recently. But no one seems to give a shit about subbing them, probably because of their lengths. It is sad because even if one group just did a couple of episodes it would be progress.

Someone uploaded some episodes hardsubbed on NT, but the torrent is dead at 97.something%. Other than that there is only the dub but that's not the full series. And episode 1 was subbed on an American release, but I don't think it is uploaded anywhere.

See, usually animation backgrounds where painted using brushes, masking tape, air brushes and sponges. Sponges is what Photoshops brush engine emulates in that it copies an image over and over in sequence.

So with a single sponge you can add texture quickly without having to render out the ass.

There is also wet-on-wet watercolor painting where the pigment dries and flows with the water, which can also be used for effects.

So "dirty" is not really the word you're looking for. It's more that it's alive under the restraits of it's medium and under its production requirements

This example is from Cartoon Networks Samurai Jack and drawn in a more Cartoon Modern kind of style, but it should illustrate what I mean.

Kill La Kills backgrounds where also painted with physical media.

The recent ANN article about people working in the industry inspired me to go back and re-watch it. Forgot how much I liked this show.

I don't think really anyone is capable of it, the money just isn't there for that sort of stuff anymore. That's why OVAs became 12 episode series with cheaper budgets.
>>
>>123577003
I wouldn't compare the OVA bubble shifting into the current market trend of one cour LN adaptations to high budget movies. We still get some really fantastic looking movies.

Is that SciFi Harry? What the fuck was with that ending, man? Fucking bullshit. Really ruined the show.

>or it is just like the current day stuff where all you can do is look at them and think "Are you retarded? If you said like 6 words to that person this entire situation would be completely resolved in a way that makes everyone happy."?

This one, at least for me. And it's such a shame since the characters have many nice moments, but they're ruined by Takahashi making them go full retard to make the manga last longer.
>>
>>123577387
>We still get some really fantastic looking movies.
Yeah, but most of the ones with a "realistic" aesthetic end up dumping half of their budget into CGI and filters; most of the ones that have excellent animation and art are very stylized.

Made a patch to add Anonymoose subs to Kagura encode of Otaku no Video. Let me know whether it works or not if anyone tries it.

>>123581093
It is mostly to do with that being the last major shift in animation production away from cels and towards digital meaning a dramatic change in the appearance of anime making a clear dividing line between that which was produced in a modern fashion and that which was produced in a old fashioned way.

Finally started LOGH; found the BD re-release on AB.

The world-building is absolutely amazing. That being said there's a lot of just plain retarded stuff. Like using hand-to-hand weapons 1500 years in the future; not just any hand-to-hand weapons either. Every solider is trained in battle-axes. What the fuck?

webm related.

Axes are good at penetrating armor, I assume they made armor that resists all the laser weapons so now they use axes. Makes sense if you think about it.

The slow blade penetrates the shield

>>123581631

Only the small handful of episodes with Vicious are actually good

Cowboy Bebop would have been much better as a short OVA series revolving almost solely around Spike confronting his past in the Red Dragon Syndicate

>Wear armor that protects you against physical weapons and get killed by death rays and bullets without getting a chance to do anything

Seems like a pretty sound choice to me.

Anyone compared encodes? I'm thinking Fussoir because EG seems flimsy from the comments.
>>
>>123581806
It's just kind of contradictory I suppose. Like they have technologically superior weapons like thor's hammer and what not but at the same time resort to using battle-axes like its the middle ages.

>We should build a blaster that can penetrate that armor. Nah fuck it, let them use axes.

Most anime was always garbage, picking the best shows from 50 or so years of history and then complaining about the ones from the last few years in comparison just makes you look stupid.

Unfortunately I have to agree with this guy. He gets it.

Most anime today may be shitty manga/LN adaptations but a lot of the older ones were originals that wound up as incomplete messes.

>build a blaster that can penetrate armor designed specifically to resist said blasters
You have any idea how much time and money that would cost, especially in the middle of a war, when you can just hand your dudes a bunch of motherfucking battleaxes and tell them to go crazy for a mere fraction of the price? Really, that's the logical outcome.
>>
>>123582633
Not to mention that the other side could just improve the armor once again and it would be a waste of money.

But on the other hand, mankind has been coming up with better ways to avoid getting beaten/chopped/stabbed/etc. to death for thousands of years and we've gotten pretty damn good at it.

I can't remember if the axes were anything special, though.
>>
>>123582615
It just seems pretty obvious to me that if you compare 50 years to say 2 or 3 you are going to get a lot more shows that are better in the 50 years because it is fucking 50 years compared to couple. It is a redundant statement really. Not to mention that people will only ever be watching the good shows from the past that people have bothered to actually subtitle because they were recognized as great classics where as the trash has just been forgotten and left unsubbed. Compare that to now where you have pretty much every single show being released in a season subbed it is a lot more likely you will pick a dud from spring 2015 that going back into the past.

The reason why 90s anime is so good is because everyone has forgotten the trash that was being made at the same time.

In the early 90s people on usenet were moaning about the OVA format killing anime but looking back that was how some of the best shit was produced.
