What Pre 2000 anime are you watching?
What do you want to get a BD?
BD for old anime is even worthwhile? I know many are just lame upscales and the "cleaner" make the flaws more aparent
Currently watching Dirty Pair and enjoying the hell out of it, planning on watching Bublegum after I'm done with Dirty Pair franchise
Not a series, but I recently picked up Do You Remember Love on BD, which I plan to watch tomorrow.
Aside from that, I've been watching green jacket Lupin.
This got a BD release. Is there any comparison charts for it yet?
Just finished watching S1 of Yamato and 2199 in unison. I really liked 2199 over the original, however I can still appreciate the original being great/very good at the time of it's release.
Just started watching the Patlabor OVAs (on ep 4). Liking it. Was surprised how feminine Noa's VA sounded, thought she would have been more average sounding.
I'm gonna do some old mahou shoujo soon. Downloaded Dream Hunter Rem, and I figured I'd check out Cutey Honey too. What are some other good old ones outside the obvious Sailor Moon, Sakura, etc.?
Just started Lodoss-tou Senki, 's pretty good so far. Dwarf is a badass elf is a smug piece of shit
Got tix to glorious 4k Belladonna this Friday. Should be quite the ride. Supposedly an hour long pre-show of other psychedelic Japanese animation but I don't know what they'll be.
Finished Video Girl Ai this week and really enjoyed it. Classic feel to it.
This. I dropped it after 10 eps a year and a half ago, but I've been devouring it since I restarted. I wish we could get 7 with Frontier production values.
Or Frontier with 7-quality characters.
And none of ya'll niggas even know, which is the sadist part because this anime deserves better than that.
Oh shit anon thanks for reminding me about that looks like the BD is finally coming out soon.
Harbor Light Story ~From Fashion Lala~
watch it only because it's completely insane and no one ever talks about it.
Started Macross 7 the other day.
Oh I watched an ojou-sama ohoho montage from this. Looks pretty neat and I've heard good things about it.
Now this I've never seen mentioned, even in the context of other obscure 80s OVAs. I'll look into it.
As far as pre-2000 shows I'm watching.
I'm almost done with Victory Gundam, and I'm around 12 and 16 episodes into Dai-Guard, and Medarot.respectively.
I also just started Galaxy Express 999, and I'm kind of bummed that there are only uploaded BDs up till episode 33.
After I finish Victory Gundam, I'm going to watch Turn A, which I'm pretty sure is 1999.
Fuck yeah Akazukin Chacha. Was thrilled when that got fansubed a few years back, never thought it would.
I wouldn't mind hearing the English dub that aired in Singapore, etc., in the 1990s. It was pretty bad overall, but it did have a few moments of charm.

I am watching Finnish White Hippos
This is objectively the best anime movie ever made and needs a BD so damn badly.
Some are upscales of old scans (eg LoGH) and some are new scans from the film on modern equipment (eg Gunbuster).
The latter look so much fucking better than the dvd era it's out of control.
Eye on the DETAIL here for a 1980 TV anime.
Watching the first Gundam.
The tactical action stuff gets tiring after a while but it's nice to see some downtime where the characters are interacting outside of their mobile suits and spaceships.
Haven't gotten very far but my favorite episode was
The scene where
Amuro visits his mother and shoots the soldierwas also a nice touch; it added an extra layer to Amuro's development as a character, which is something I didn't expect to see in a kid's show.
Why do old anime have that faded look? It's the same with irl film. I know there's deterioration in physical film or cels but is there any way to maintain the quality indefinitely?
Dude it's the photographic process that makes stuff look like that. It didn't look significantly more faded back then than it does now. At least for anime. And on top of that, if you look at the production cels, they did use more muted color palettes.
And it generally looks a lot better than digital coloring anyway so why are you complaining?
Victory Gundam. After this all I have left to watch is AGE and then I'm done with Gundam. It's been fun.
Yakko and Marin from Akazukin Chacha.
Just watched Wicked City and it was amazing. Now I get where Nihei got his characters for BLAME!
Makie is cute! CUTE!
I just finished up Zeorymer last night. It was pretty good, but it felt that it was missing something.
Finished Dirty Pair a couple weeks ago and enjoyed it a lot, have the following lined up in my backlog: Zambot 3, Oniisama e...,Captain Harlock SSX,Great Teacher Onizuka. Going to start Harlock after I'm done with 999 since I'm 1/3rd towards the end and I've been enjoying it a lot.
With Ideon being the only other Tomino project I've seen outside of his Gundam material, would you say Zambit 3 is the next logical choice?
Also since this is a pre-2000 thread I've been buying a lot of old manga lately: Astro Boy omnibus, Onwards Towards Our Noble Deaths, Push Man and Other Stories, Gits, etc.
Anything I should be on the lookout for which is getting released from the good old days?
>This got a BD release.
Really? When? Where?
Love Wicked City, that ost man. IT'S NOT EASY! I've been watching Ruin Explorers, so far, it is quite entertaining. I like the characters a lot.
