Angel's Egg is hardly underrated, Anon. Even ignoring its message, very personal and hard to interpret without knowing something about Oshii's life, it's easily one of the prettiest anime of the 80s.
>>
The Berserk movies were actually enjoyable. I really liked the artstyle.

In truth, Presence and Starlight Angel are the only good segments.

Presence is a genuine masterpiece though, and Umetsu's best work by far.

It's a simple stroy, The angel of death comes to kill the angel (presumably one of the last) to end the twisted world that she herself maintains with her faith. The fishermen(among other things) are there to try and imply the city the angel inhabits is imbalanced and twisted. The fishermen instead hunt the shadows of fish and destroy the town in the process , man hunts shadows of manufactured adversary and destroys the environment and perverts incentives in the process.

The Swordsman is there to bring death to a dying world and that world is held together by the angels belief in egg.

Texhnolyze, which I'd feel is better artistically from a thematic and story pov. My only problem with Angel's Egg is its heavy use of symbolism.
>>
>>160821586
>>160821586
>which I'd feel is better artistically
And no one will ever be able to check because the show doesnt have a rip above 480p, which means it will always look shit no matter what you do.

If it's just for the atmosphere then maybe Lain, dunno

Boy A: Like I said, the apple is the universe itself! A universe in the palm of your hand. It's what connects this world and the other world.
Boy B: "The other world"?
Boy A: The world Campanella and the other passengers are heading to!
Boy B: What does that have anything to do with an apple?
Boy A: In other words, the apple is also also a reward for those who have chosen love over everything else!
Boy B: But everything's over when you're dead.
Boy A: It's not over! What I'm trying to say is that's actually where everything begins!
Boy B: I'm not following you at all.

slow burn 80's and 90's stuff.
try the presence short in robot carnival, or the first short in neo tokyo. canon fodder from memories is also good. you could also give beautiful dreamer a try. it's an urusei yatsura movie but has good atmospheric moments.

oh, and if you want something really atmospheric and weird as fuck, belladonna of sadness.

Yea, fuck you I've just finished the show, one of my favourites now.

>>160821431
haruhi is shit. deal with it. no one who knew anime before 2005 likes it or thinks its important at all. its popularity turned anime the wrong direction for almost a decade
>>
I genuinely think the first Eureka Seven movie was excellent besides its recycled animation and generally awful dialogue. It clarifies a lot and explains the overall intent of the series. The bits that weren't recycled (maybe half?) were also very pretty, and it has an excellent soundtrack.
>>
>>160821586
I remember starting this years ago, and mainly just remembering that there wasn't a single line of dialogue in the first episode.

Should probably give it another go.
>>
>>160822146
Wasn't there like one line at the end of the first episode?
>>
>>160822273
Maybe. I just remember the protagonist screaming after he got arm cut off.
>>
>>160822061
For someone who's supposedly into anime for a while and probably older than most people that post here you sure give out some pretty immature statements.
>It's shit because the cool kids don't like it
Also wtf is up with this
>thinks its important at all
>turned anime the wrong direction for almost a decade
You can dislike it all you want for being popular, even though that pretty stupid, but calling Dissapearance straight up shit is really just being edgy
>>

Man, I gotta rewatch this some time.

>>160822517
>it's shit because the cool kids don't like it
no, it's just plain shit. waifufags can't see that though
>important, turned anime wrong direction
it wasn't important as far as pushing anime forward artistically as a medium. In the 80's and 90's (and early 2000's), anime creators were making things like Angel's Egg, Evangelion, Utena, Cowboy Bebop, Akira, Grave of the Fireflies, Princess Mononoke, (etc etc) All anime that had something meaningfull to say about humanity and the world we live in.

Then Haruhi came along and anime studios realized they could make billions of yen from stupid autistic otaku if they just made an anime about otaku. "erhmegad they're referencing tsunderes and visual novels in this episode, take muh money kyoani!" fucking retards

That is partially true, but you shouldn't judge a show solely on the impact it had on the industry. While Haruhi and Eva are in no way comparable in terms of quality, you will often find people calling it shit and 2deep4you waifubait, they're wrong obviously. Haruhi doesn't have much meaningful or deep things to say, but expecting every show to do so is kinda ridiculous. You're also pretending like there wasn't a pile of shit being released every year before Haruhi came along. And Haruhi comming along didn't cause good shows to stop comming out. It's true that Haruhi spawned a lot of copycats, but you should judge the show on its own. And Disappearance specificaly has gorgeous animation, great voice acting, soundtrack, some really great scenes, and great pacing at least for the first half. Calling it straight up shit because light novel adaptations are the main thing now is not really being fair.
>>
>>160824029
what do you expect me to say to this? it's the least smelly turd in a pile of shit? congratulations then. it has pretty animation maybe, but with shit character design and shit writing, that doesn't help it much.
not every show has to be serious. i love comedy. i love urusei yatsura. i love jojo's. i love shit like cromartie. haruhi isn't funny. at all. references aren't jokes, unless you're an autistic fuck that thinks family guy is funny cuz "durr hurr i remember what they showing on the teevee!"

jesus christ, this is a pointless conversation.

>>160821641
Oh I actually own all of Texhnolyze on DVD. Is that above 480p? It's the original release. If it is, I can make a rip. The company that licensed it is long gone so I'm not concerned about copyright issues.
>>
>>160818375

Is it really considered a movie though? I always consider stuff like that, Memories, Genius Party, ect. to just be a collection of shorts.
>>
>>160825738
ISOs are available, but its DVD rips. Those are 480p by default iirc. Every above that is just upscaled and wont improve picture quality.
>>
>>160825316
Is that the one where the main guy just randomly tries to rape a girl in the middle of the night.
>>
>>160819224

I've seen this. Watched it after Galatic Railroad was referenced so heavily in Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora.
>>
>>160825807
That's unfortunate. It looks like even Funi only has up to 480p. What a shame.
>>
>>160825316
Hard to care about the visuals when the writing (particularly the "romantic subplot") is so fucking dogshit. The visuals are acknowledged, but outside of that the movie simply falls flat. People always claim retarded shit like being inspirational and whatnot, but that really doesnt save it.

>>160825832
Yes

That was such a good movie. The launch sequence at the end is amazing.

Redline
The End of Evangelion
Macross do you remember love?
>>
>>160825936
Yeah the execution is a bit sloppy, but I still found the protag's arc pretty fascinating, and a lot more nuanced than most young male character's development in anime. The film doesn't hide the fact that he's a severely flawed person (e.g. the rape scene) but he finds purpose in the space mission and becomes a better man for it.

>>160826018

I think its heavily overrated. There you go, fuck you. For real, though. While I can appreciate the art and animation, the former really doesnt do much for me. The plot wasnt really all that original either. Feels a bit like most Miyazaki movies: nice to look at, lacks substance

It's a hipster movie, obviously it's not underrated if those snobs watch it. It may as well be the opposite now.

Yea Kikis, Totoro, Porco Rosso and Caliostro really shine in the writing department. Nausicaa certainly is another one of those classic literature gems. Lets not forget Howls while we are at it. Actually, wait. Forgive me, I actually listed a bunch of movies that have nothing but their visuals. My bad. Most of Ghiblis own works have better writing than the ones Miyazaki was involved in.
