All obscure gundam shows but I think they are waay too deep in the chart.

You can easily watch that much in less than a year with a full time job and gf especially when it's your first 100 and their is so much good anime to watch.

>>138727099
It's obscure since Demo D did a video on it.

I was actually watching this right now desu. ZZ is also more obscure than VOTOMS?

Shintaro Kago's weird clips.

>>138728095
No, it's not. If you spend even an hour of free time a day on it you're probably going to get through that much in within two years unless everything you watch is some four-cour mecha.

I'd say 100 is still not enough to be posting, unless you're mainly a manga person. Below that is definitely too few.

Well, there are about 30 shows that come out every season. 4 seasons make for 120 shows per year. 10 years in a decade to make 1200 shows. Starting in 1980 and extending to 2020 is a total of 4800 individual shows.

I excluded 1950-1970 because the amount of anime per season was typically less than 30, and lumped them all theoretically into the 5 years of 2016-2020.

100 anime is... not all that much if expressed in terms of enthusiast.

It's like saying you are a wine enthusiast after tasting only a dozen types of white wine all from the same vineyard. You need to sample different varieties.

I would say that you must sample from all genres and watch all significant pieces in order to understand anime as an enthusiast.

It is less an issue of quantity and more of quality in selection.

My 4800 anime is a low estimate, by the way.

i once watched an animated project from the university of osaka, the video was about 26 min long and it was hosted in niconico.
the video dated from 1995 so the wuality was really bad, the problem came when i realized what the problem was, the plot of the animation was an appeal to enjo kousai at early ages.
do you think this is not wrong since it's an anime? well, an university wont allow students put the name of the institution in this kind of projects, that's what bothered me.

I'm tier 5 or tier 6. I started watching anime back in the early 90's. I still have a few fansubbed VHS tapes of really really really old shit like Gall Force, Lily C.A.T., Leda, Project A-ko, et cetera. I remember paying something like $200 in shipping for a set of (badly copied) Mysterious Cities of Gold.

Okubyou na Venus. It's an OVA that's four music videos that act as the story for a rising singer's success. Not subbed, only ever found it in shit quality on YouTube. That's just one of them though, there's dozens of completely forgotten OVAs out there.
>>
>>138727037

Pre-1960s anime is easy to tick off, just watch Legend of the White Snake (Hakujaden). It's not particularly great, but if you're into the history and timeline of anime, it's probably one you shouldn't pass up on, along with any of those old wartime cartoons.

Funny to see previously dubbed/licensed and well-received anime near the bottom on the OP, like Crest of the Stars. Same with Robot Carnival and Angel's Egg, to a degree. They're not necessarily obscure if you ever watch 80s stuff, but it's probably more a matter if the viewer liked or responded well to them.
>>
Leiji Matsumoto movies.
Also this chart is bullshit.
>>
>>138727037
According to that list, Mazinger? No way in hell it's that obscure. It's probably Lezarion or some other random /m/ shit I've watched raw.
>>
>>138727037
>animated college projects

Oh come on just because Chisato Stared was some cool ass shit doesn't mean it's so lolobscure
>>
>>138731215

Yeah, a real list of obscurity would be all OVAs and movies that got released once and then never again, so you'd have to hunt down some old raw VHS tape.

tfw I began anime with deep tier 4 stuff (Girls und Panzer, Porco Rosso, Sky Crawlers) and then watched random stuff from all over the chart, from Death Note and Madoka Magica to Strike Witches and Black Lagoon

tl;dr there's a slight smell of bullshit in there. Plus, I wouldn't have ranked Madoka Magica as entry anime while most Miyazaki films are deeper ; these ones pop up quite often on mainstream TV channels. PMMM (or Mirai Nikki, or even fucking SAO) don't.

Oh, and where does pic related rank? I haven't seen it.
>>
>>138731151
You need to realize that the list is complete ass and is not proportional at all. Hell the pre 2000 threads that popup every blue moon are better examples than the OP pic.

Yeah, it is all relative. Obscure and old don't mean much to me. It's gotta be pre-bubble to be old, but I suppose the break line is the analog and digital divide around 2000 now.

A-ko would be included in that "Popular 80s/90s OVAs" part. A-ko used to be some of the hottest shit around, like along with Lodoss and also the other stuff that was on Sci-Fi back in 97/98.

It isn't that bad. Almost everything post-2000 has at least available raws. Things in the worst shape are kids shows like Bikkuriman or Mushiking. Early digital is just hard to watch for a lot of people due to being trapped in low resolution with a tendency for REALLY bad cg when it shows up.
