What are you anons watching?
Currently having a nostalgia trip with Slam Dunk.
Brillante resplandor hay aqui
cuando vas corriendo por la ciudad
despues de un gran dia de practica
y no se porque razon no lo se
yo ciento esta atraccion por ti
nuestras miradas se cruzaron sin control
no te iras nunca ya, te amare
loco estoy por tu amor gritare
el mundo sabra que vivire loco por ti
romper esta barrera sin dudarlo
me separa de tu amor y que todos sepan que me gustas
mañana el sol brillara
a todos demostremos que no hay nada
que pudiera separarnos ya
solo pienso en ti lo gritare y por ti estoy loco de amor.
holy shit angel cop is fucking hilarious
also worst hair
Escaflowne, decided to rewatch it when nyaa and bbt went down. It always breaks my heart in the end.
Kidding, I love that OP, it's so Luis Miguel like.
I like the other trio a bit more.
And berry > cherry > lime.
Just rewatched the whole series again. Shit's still dope.
>pre-2000's thread deader than sin
fuck this board's shit taste
also, patlabor is the shit
>Gotou best boy
to be fair, I think these threads might be happening a bit too frequently
when they're spread out a week or two apart, we've had time to finish shows so we actually have something to talk about
when they happen every day or two we end up saying "yeah I'm still working my way through x. by the way, is y any good?"
I just finished Macross Plus again.
Makes me nostalgic about the 90's.
If you don't mean only team sports then you're missing out with stuff like Initial D like the other guy said, also Ace wo Nerae, and Ashita no Joe at the very least.
I was rewatching the original DB after getting all the neat BD rips with film noise left in and then that drive decided to die.
I'm rewatching Utena and I think I can finally be honest with myself, Akio is the best girl.
Finally sat down to start watching this. The blue robots are fucking adorable.
Just bad memory, I wasn´t even 10 when I watched 90s anime with my older brother, when I finally started to get a hold on the internet was around 2005, and there was already new anime comming up all the time in fansubs.
It's been ages since i don't download anime... Took me a while to switch to streaming because i do love to have the physical media but streaming is just more convenient than looking around the house for the discs...
Watched the ninja scroll movie the other day. Damn that aged like wine. It's almost as good as Basilisk.
i added a shitload of 80s-90s ova's to this streaming chatroom thing so come watch if you want to see some. some guy from 420chan posted it but i made it a pre-2000 playlist
domoinion tank police
golgo13 ; the professional
call me tonight OVA
grey digital target
black Magic M66
otoku no video
dimension hunter fedora
birth of mewtwo
Well fuck, my bad.
I also started watching this.
I'm rewatching the Tenchi ovas. I watched them for the first time a little over a year ago and they have become my go to show whenever I don't know what to watch.
>watching escaflowne on tv azteca
You got lucky, this one is almost 00s.
Man, I've been meaning to rewatch this shit for a long long time. I loved the OP.
Feel our despair now with the current 4th OVA series, it's absolutely ignored by the big english fansubbers, shit subs are the result of that of course, and so far the episodes that have come out fit kinda weird in the timeline.
Is there a list of anime that aired on tv back then?
I have a list of anime that aired on locomotion, but not one for tele abierta and I'd love to compile most of the stuff I watched back then.
>That one show/OVA/movie you really want to watch, but it isn't subbed
Me and a buddy are watching Gundam Wing.
It's pretty fun so far. Cool grunt suits and uniforms.
Considering picking up this too. Caped mecha are very regal.
I'm also watching Slam Dunk but it's a first for me. Was motivated into the genre after watching haikyuu so I'm looking for any cool stuff I might've neglected due my prejudice in sports anime. So far, it's better than kuroko no basket but that's not much of a feat, I guess.
Most Delinquent/Wangan-Kanjo racing/Bosozoku, type of series
I've been meaning to start a fansub group for this kind of stuff but I haven't had the time, I wish someone did though.
It's very shoujo-ish imo, but it's pretty good, I'd consider it a must among 90s mecha.
If by the end you still liked Wing, instead of then watching newer stuff, go back in time and check the original and Z gundam.
Sports is a good genre, sure there's tons of shit but you do get many gems. It's worth going through the classics at least, they'll also help with a ton of references you'll see everywhere after you watched them.
i saw an pre-2000 OVA(?) i wanted to watch but i have forgotten the name pls help
a lady dies and is then sent back to when her and her husband were first dating and somehow fucks things up by making the her past self jealous or something
I'm barely on the first episodes but it looks really promising. Also a friend of mine who saw it back in the day recommended it to me, when Animax or Locomotion were still a thing.
Also saw pic related.
People keep circlejerking the same anime. Post some random or different.
Nothing because Bakabt account is pruned.
nothing watching past stuff gives me too much nostalgia feels
even old doujinshis make me cry i fucking wanna go back!
even pre 2000 days looked more bright now its gray and everyday the same.
last time i watched azumanga daioh and cried my mom was freaked and asked whats wrong because i rarely cry.
she almost called a therapist...
I've already seen most of UC gundam actually.
They were pretty good.
If you don't like it now then 0079 just might not be your show. I'd watch it up until episode 11 and stop if you still don't like it.
My all time favorite.
Got also Escaflowne and Utena to watch.
>that entire sequence
I really miss hand-drawn mech sequences like this.
>I am honestly having a hard time to come up with something other than the typical DB, DBZ, Saint Seiya, Evangelion, etc.
If you seriously can't think of any other shows to discuss besides entry-level shit that everybody knows about then it's a safe bet that you're retarded.
Mind linking me to the post?
its not pre2000 though, but sept 2000
Kirara Imai is a young woman who, running late for her wedding, speeds in her car and dies in a car accident. Without understanding why, she finds herself transported eight years into the past, as a ghost. Kirara keeps her appearance, but can move through the air and can pass through walls at will. Kirara finds Kompei, her future fiance, and the Kirara of that time, who at that point are not a couple yet. The ghost Kirara cannot accept her separation from Kompei and tries to keep him to herself, at the expense of her past self.
Its a crying shame that Kawamori has abandoned it for CG, even if the CG is pretty good.
What physical pre-2000 anime do you guys own
>Ranma 1/2 S2 & OVA set
>Project Ako with OST
>Evangelion set with Death & Rebirth & EoE
Just some that popped in my head
>Ninja scroll DVD
>Cowboy Bebop DVD
I've typically stopped buying stufff because it's of inferior quality to DLs. A couple of my friends have quite the VHS collections though and they are very nostalgic to look at/watch.
>tfw long ass list of things you want to watch but never get around to it, and then when you are bored and need something to watch you forget about the list
>tfw trying to track down high quality downloads of obscure 80s series and you finally find that somebody had the laserdisc set and made a high quality rip
I'm encoding Marude Dameo tomorrow. After that, Space Patrol Hopper I suppose, then whatever else was requested last time. Otherwise I'll just go down the better.php list. Are there really no encodes of Juushin Riger/Bio Armor Lyger?
I'd love to have that sort of thread, but not enough people have seen old things beyond the usual entry level stuff to start discussions.
Which is why a retro board would either be incredibly slow or just not work, since it would just be "i'm watching this" blogs and thinly veiled rec threads
Finally started Kodocha properly today. Have seen one episode before, but restarted it and consider this to be really starting. Have seen four episodes so far, it's pretty okay, not boring, hopefully I get more into it when I see more.
There's simply not enough material for a second season of Slam Dunk. In the anime, the match between Shohoku and the combination of Shoyo and Ryonan is actually the first match of Shohoku in the inter high tournament in the manga. Only they've swapped characters. And after that there's only one more match for Shohoku before the manga ended. I was kinda dissapointed on the last match, the characters seems lazily drawn compared to the others. The end really felt rush to me.
The match where Sakuragi injure his spine really broke my heart. And the fear mongering from Ayako about how he'll lose his progress as a basketball player really gave me chills. I hoped that Inoue sensei stretch the manga into the second year, but beggars can't be choosers I suppose. But at least there's progress with Sakuragi and Haruko. Well, kinda.
Same here. Been rewatching the entire series
on my phoneand reading the manga to get a proper closure. The anime really suffered from pacing issue. But I don't seem to mind it much. It's hard to find character driven anime these days.
>think these threads might be happening a bit too frequently
They definitely are, these threads only should happen once a month.
At least that's what I did when I used to make them, and they'd last over 500 posts.
Is Escaflowne good? I've been on the fence about jumping in to the anime for quite some time. The soundtrack is great. And I really love the mech design. But when I read that it's about romance, I decided to not to. Is the romance really cheesy like those 90's romance anime? Like Ayashi no Ceres for an example. I really can't stomach that anime. Fucking AXN.
Also the cityscapes were great. A real product of the times in a good way/
English dubs of Sailor Moon. They inserted some weird 3D transition thingies and butchered Moonlight Densetsu.
Oh yeah, also El Hazard OVA.
Next Dimension new season when
Also, I remember seeing something about a Yu Yu Hakusho anniversary. Any news on if there's something planned? Like an OVA or anything?
>Also, I remember seeing something about a Yu Yu Hakusho anniversary. Any news on if there's something planned? Like an OVA or anything?
It's getting a re-airing I think but that's all.
Marathoned NGE and EoE yesterday and today, first time watching it. Was absolutely amazing. Guess a lot of anime newfags on here say this but I genuinely don't think I'll ever watch anything as good as this.
After finishing it
I laid in bed crying for 5 minutes,
overwhelmed by feelings of loneliness. Felt almost like I was hungover after watching it. Just absolutely miserable
i really want to complete gundam and like it , don't know why can't i just watch the last 6 episodes from 0079 ! watched the first 30 episodes in one week and it's been a month and i haven't seen a single episode after 36 !
Colorful really has to be watched both subbed and dubbed. It's mostly the same thing but for some of the shorts it's almost different. Both (for me atleast) had hits and misses on both dub and sub.
Don't expect to be watching something amazing it's really not.
I'm in the middle of downloading all of Patlabor.
Already got the series and the ovas. Downloading the movies right now.
where did you get anne in such a high quality?
also is there even a 1080p rip of the original sailor moon and dragon ball (not Z) somewhere?
>Is Escaflowne good?
It's good. Although, the quality does waiver towards the end because they were forced to cut it short.
It really would have benefitted from more episodes, but c'est la vie.
>where did you get anne in such a high quality?
Anne has a bluray, anon. I got it off of bakabt a long time ago.
well that makes sense. if you make a post about an obscure show that no one's seen, you'll maybe get a reply or two from people who haven't seen it but think it looks interesting. if you post about something more well known, you'll actually be able to talk about it with people.
Honestly I just want to watch all mahou shoujo shows. But this one in particular looks amazing. The first few episodes are subbed if you want to take a look. Megu-chan is especially important in magical girl show history which is why I want to watch it so badly.
Starts off as generic as possible for mecha shows at the time but soon Tomino starts to show his flair and it gets really dark for a kids show. The civilians legitamtely despise the pilots for the destruction they cause and a bunch more fucked up shit happens soon after.
It's also probably because most people here started watching anything older than Naruto quite recently, so they hit up all the meme one's first.
It's trash, but enjoyable trash.
Enjoyable trash is the best genre of anime
Recently watched Kimagure Orange Road. I found episode 43 very intriguing.
So did they fuck? I was thinking it was a 50/50 chance just because of the implications, but after watching the movie I decided it was a near zero chance unless the movie is a separate canon. The only reason I even thought they did it was because of the tissue papers on the floor around the futon, Kazuya reading Kyosuke's mind and then acting very upset (which he shouldn't have if Kyosuke didn't do anything) and just the overall tone of the episode.
fuck that colorful ova is amazing, it speaks to me on different levels and understands my daily struggle
but i agree on the sub and dub version, the dub was done pretty well, but the scenes where they are in english class learning how to pronounce the letters "L" and "R" kinda need to be a sub because the effect is lost otherwise
Yeah. Besides, they aren't exactly faithful to the source material and everyone knows the anime way more than the manga because they're meme.
As for Nagai manga, they're trashy at times but in the same vein as enjoyable yet bad horror and action films.
Personally I thought it only really got interested once newtypes were introduced. It's clear the Tomino was kind of making shit up as he went, but once they introduced newtypes the show seemed to get its voice and found some sci-fi grounding to deliver a message from. Not to mention Tomino's directorial style seemed to reach its potential around the same time, as that's when he starts using certain techniques that he'd use for the rest of his career like character cutouts during action scenes. Or I could be wrong about that but I don't remember him doing that at all during the early episodes.
Is it bad to say that I appreciate a good amount of the pre/mid-90's anime I've watched without actually truly enjoying it?
Like, I understand the impact that certain works had on the industry/their genres moving forward, and I can appreciate the quality of animation or production for their time, but as someone watching these shows in 2017 they tend to, generally speaking, be narratively simplistic or go point-by-point through the common tropes of their genres or character archetypes (which, again, I get is often because they were novel at the time and have simply become norms in their genres because of their impact).
It makes me feel bad that I can't really enjoy them as I think they're meant to be.
We're not talking about averages here though, I'm talking about what are usually listed as some of the true stand-outs of those eras. There have definitely been shows in the past 20 years that deviate from or subvert tropes, create interesting and unique characters, etc. but I had the fortune to see them as they were still somewhat novel and didn't become norms of their respective genres.
The problem is that now going back and watching things from earlier eras that (at the time) did the same thing in breaking norms and subverting expectations, they've been copied and copied and copied so many times in subpar works that they've become tired and expected. I can't enjoy them as a first-time viewer today specifically because of how influential they were.
Bubblegum Crisis 2040
Dif anon but I plan on watching this series. Which would you consider... better? I usually watch subbed but I occasionally watch dubs if they are hilariously bad.
I had that problem at times when watching Space Cobra. they'd overexplain things to death and it really made the flow of the show suffer. of course you're not going to Cobra for the dialogue, but still
Generally older shows will have a more episodic format which makes them seem narratively simple. Even something like Gundam which is this supposedly sprawling epic gets dragged down by episodic repetition, which is why I actually like Double Zeta so much because it has these little mini arcs.
At the same time classics like The Rose of Versailles can stand tall next to any modern "complex" show. It starts a little goofy, but by towards the end I think it cements itself as a timeless classic. The scene where Oscar and Marie Antoinette see each other for the last time will always stick with me.
Ah, I used "wo" instead of "o." I'm dumb. That's good to know, but yeah I hope he just rips the BDMVs instead. He should'be gotten it from Amazon, their DHL shipping is extremely fast and cheap.
Ah, it's not on AB and I don't think I saw it on Nyaa, so I'll just do an encode anyway. I should stress that I'm not subbing these, just running DVDs through Handbrake and putting them on Youtube for perusal.
An episode of Ojamajo Doremi aired like a day before and an episode of S-CRY-ed aired the day after. That's all I got
Meant to post this last night but it was during the downtime.
Finished watching Ashita no Joe. The José fight had some pretty cool animation, even if it was drawn out perhaps too long. Though that kinda pertains to the entire series. Overall a pretty decent show.
Just bought the GITS dvd and comparing it to the BD version. The extra stuff there is pretty interesting, like how they made it with the 'modern' CGI and stuff
Watching the Tenchi Muyo OVA as part of my "catch up on anime I was aware of as a kid but never allowed to actually watch" thing. Only two episodes in but it's kind of boring. I wonder how different the TV series is.
That's usually the case. Anyway, episode 3's more in line to what I expected.
>so, how do you like my swimming
i gotta rewatch this
Just stared Ginga Hyouryuu Vifam which had been in my backlog for a long time for reasons i can't remember anymore, not even sure what to expect.
I watched it a couple of weeks ago for the first time, and it's honestly one of my favorite things I've watched in a very long time. The last 10 minutes of episode 6 almost always makes shed some tears
what le fug
Finished watching the Kyoto Arc for the first time. I was extremely entertained.
T&B is just beautiful and a piece of work I always revisit again and again. Much better than the manga version of the story too.
It actually might be my favorite piece of anime ever.
dub golden boy is da best
OVA 1 is the best as it's what Tenchi is all about, but it's got pacing problems and I always saw room for improvement with the sequels, improvement that never happened. The rest of the OVAs have issues of various kinds, OVA 2 is still good though. The TV series is more of a friendlier version of OVA 1, but it felt right for a 26 episode TV format. It had the time to let you get to know the characters more and never feels rushed.
Started the Red saga in Dragonball lately and it's getting a lot more enjoyable. Been making more progress in Turn A, I completely forgot this was a Tomino show due to how comfy the setting was, totally wasn't prepared for Will Game. I think Loran is shaping up to be one of my favourite Gundam protagonists, he's pacifist done right.
Feel like watching Slam Dunk or a WMT next, which WMT would you suggest I start with?
Yeah, Loran is pretty great.
The whole facade of Harry not knowing Loran is Lora reminds me a lot of Futurama when Zapp was strangely sexually attracted to his new comrade, Lemon, who turned out to be Leela in disguise. Come to think of it, Futurama had a lot of /m/ references now that I think about it. Even Zapp's uniform is reminiscent of Zeon's.
Top ten favorite pre-2000s series? Mine's a little limited at the moment because I still need to watch a lot more.
Irresponsible Captain Tylor
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Big O season one (though season two is also great)
Martian Successor Nadesico
Yu Yu Hakusho
Revolutionary Girl Utena
Lupin the Third (all three series from that era)
Rose of Versailles
Space Runaway Ideon
Legend of the Galactic Heroes
Turn A Gundam
Akage no Anne
Ashita no Joe
Galaxy Express 999
Great for suffering and has some amazing character development. BD release when?
What would've happened if Goku had turned SSJ at this moment rather than on Namek?
>Mfw 2/3rds of my personal collection is retro anime
I'm glad I'm stocked for a good while until everything is actually up and running again. Though this has actually motivated me to watch more, no idea if it has had a similar effect on anyone else but I like how it has giving me this spark.
Bloodberry was the best
>the Area 88 manga will never be fully translated past the original localization
even fucking Mad Bull has a scanlation project
Marude Dameo is done. I'll upload it here and on AB tonight or tomorrow.
I watched the first CCS movie last night. It was not very good.
Nuku Nuku TV was best though, and I think that was in like, 2004.
Yu Yu Hakusho (animation was superb, I miss those days)
Saint Seiya (always!)
Magic Knight Rayearth
Mahou Tsukai Tai (OVA)
Oh! MY Goddess (OVA)
Hokuto no Ken (iconic)
Honorable mention to Dragon Quest.
I'm probably forgetting some good ones, and forget if some like Card Captor Sakura were animated -before- 2000.
Reuploaded Aishite Knight to Pantsu. It's well-seeded on AB because seedboxes, but it looks like I'm the only public seeder (AniRena). Which is unfortunate, because my seed speed sucks.
This guy? I also remember Gamlin getting blown up but surviving for no reason.
Gigiles Death were he finally sings one of the songs as he implodes destroying the planet as a really fucking awesome climatic moment. Which was later overshadowed by the ridicilous finale
it's endearing, it feels like the voice actor is saying it with pure passion and that's all that matters to me.
a dub is only bad in my book if it feels half-assed or if it feels like the voice actors are only in it for the paycheck
Some people might actually own them on DVD, perchance. Then again, there is always more than one place to look, my friend
The trackers for it are:
On the note of trackers: I noticed a few things I downloaded from the old nyaa say "tracker not found", do I just find the files on pantsu manually and click the magnet link to merge trackers or is there an automatic process?
Holy shit, that swimming scene had me in tears.
The DVD encode for this is really dark. Actually the DVD source is but with sunrise slowly making all their anime into BDs we can get that delicious animation that was shittily put into the dark.
KOR is shitty. Waste of a show, It could have been done in a cour but was pushed forward with shitty side characters, misunderstandings and asspulls every episode. Have an official nipple. There are many more just look for the art books.
Well most good smart /a/ has backups of everything and does not delete things like a newfag streamer would. Also would have access to all the anime websites so you never have to scourge the internet looking for the show you want.
Gundam Wing, i'd never seen it before.
It's not that good but it's fun
Xabungle, just finished episode 5. Really liking it, animation has some good moments, good setting, everyone is mean to each other and even the "good guys" are not that good.
>Really liking it, [...] everyone is mean to each other
Is pic related still worth watching? It has a high user score, but the episode count seems to steep for a full commitment.
It's good but don't let the hype fool you. There're a lot of bad writing decisions (namely, how every old dude is wrong and stupid and the young are Good and Right, every. single. time) but there are plenty of memorable characters and it does a great job world building.
It's totally worth it as long as you aren't looking for sulking, whiny protagonists, moe, power-ups, etc.
>Every old dude is wrong
Well, two older male characters in the show were not "wrong" but that's because they wound up joining the winning side or they were already there in the first place.
It's really good, but you will also notice it started some dumb meandering, recurring tominisms in the serious story at times.
And Blume is best boy.
Just finished GTO (which I know is kinda borderline for this thread but it started in '99) and feeling a little let down.
There were a lot of 10/10 episodes in the first half, but it stumbled pretty hard around the middle mark. The Okinawa arc near the end was pretty great, but overall it feels like they were never able to capture the spirit of the early episodes again.
Maybe I just started getting burned out the longer it went on, I dunno.
Is the manga worth a read?
>raise the RF
>get 600mb episodes anyway
Oh well. A probable combination of film grain + me not knowing what I'm doing led to this, so that's someone else's problem.
I just caught up with UC Gundam all the way into Victory and the Crossbone sidestories. Should I jump straight into Turn-A or is it worth it to stop by G and X for the references?
This torrent finally downloaded, so I'll watch the only subbed episode of this and think about how it'll never be subbed, get a BD, or even get a DVD ISO rip.
Just watch Turn A if that's what you want to watch. It's more of a standalone series than some people make it out to be.
The references to past series don't impact the plot at all, and most of them are throwaway lines like Turn X's "shining finger."
Turn-A is my favorite Gundam, but it's very different than all the other shows. It eschews most of the mecha action in favor of character development and world-building.
So don't expect a lot of action. It's mostly slice of life and politics within a war. With traps, tea time and Harry Ord's fabulous jammies.
I've listened to the Macross Plus soundtrack loads of times before but now that I'm finally marathoning all of the Macross series, it just sounds so much better when you're actually watching it holy fuck.
Misa was wasted on Hikaru, and Roy left this world too soon.
It's a shitty youtube version, but that's the only place to watch this subbed, either way it's a great gag anime and I really like it, much better than it's 2015 remake.
anime was 2005, but LN was 2001.
As close as I could get, but this is one of my gems that I liked.
Is there any artist you follow which it's artstyle would fit in a 80's or 90's anime?
>mfw audio of recorded phone phuck session
Im surprised how little mention angel cop gets when its probably one of the more well animated OVAs out there
