1970-1995.

Of course. Because those are the anime that defined my childhood, I take great pleasure in rewatching them with a fresh mind. Old Ghiblis are awesome too.

There are still good anime from 1996-2013 but I just like watching old anime sometimes.

HnK and SDF Macross are masterpieces.

does this count as old anime? it definitely feels older than most of the stuff i'v watched before. Although I like it.

Last thing was gunbuster . Pretty good . I plan to wacht Cobra but i just started Gintama.
Also where do i start gundamu ?

I've never watched the HnK anime but I loved the manga.

I'm currently watching LOTGH, I plan on watching Urusei Yatsura after.

It was only 12 years ago.

>>100262087
is lotgh possible to marathon? admitting that i'm a huge neet and got infinite free time so the length wouldn't be a problem, would it turn out too boring or what?
I prefer to marathon things when I can.
>>
>>100260924
Yeah

I just watched this mecha called Code Geass in fact
>>
Only LotGH, which I'm watching now. It makes me want to try some others after I'm done though.
>>
>>100262166
oh, so that's not even before 2000. yet when you say 12 years ago it still feels old, god damnit. Anyway it felt older to me - i think i'm too used to recent animation.

>>100262221
i certainly don't think it would be too boring, but it would be one long ass marathon

Unless you strictly watch action-packed shounen then you should be able to enjoy binge watching it.

It's not a high quality anime by any means, but it is deliciously campy, a very entertaining cartoon if you like that sort of thing.

Sounds like a huge waste of time. Time that would be better spent actually watching interesting anime or reading interesting manga if you want to educate yourself. Gundamns were glorified commercials to sell toys to kids.

Why would anyone want to watch Gundam?
It is without a doubt the most pretentious anime franchise ever made, trying to actually portray war in a mature fashion with two fucking plastic toys smashing into each other all the while touching on only the most one-dimensional aspects of war (people die omg).
Also Tomino is a omega-class faggot who kills off characters and generally acts like a retard because he admits he's mentally sick and it prevents him from acting out real crazily in real life. Why is this hack praised and not locked up and ridiculed? I can't understand it.

It's a sad thing to say that a glorified toy commercial is one of the better written war dramas in anime. Gundam is no LoGH, but the writing in there sure as hell beats out most of the horseshit we get today.

That was legitimately bad, Araki clearly had changed his mind about how he wanted the story to go and wanted to drop that character. Reminded me of Amiba/Toki in the Hokuto no Ken manga - originally Amiba was actually supposed to be an insane Toki and this was made clear in the manga. The author changed his mind halfway through and had Rei appear out of nowhere and explain/force a retcon into the story.

I was always happy to see that whenever they made a new FOTNS work (no matter how bad) they never 'modernized' Kenshiro's character to appeal to modern trends. His personality and characterization are very conservative and outdated now but everyone knows to keep him the way he should be.
>>
>>100264167
it was the go-to anime in the 90s, but its pace doesn't really hold up to modern shows and doesn't offer much in terms of waifu wars, so unless you have nostalgia goggles for it or like Ukyo then it will be disappointing

What? No it's from some bonus page from Young Animal (the magazine publishing Berserk) in which we learn or confirm interesting tidbits like the fact that Miura and Kôji Mori (Holyland, Suicide Island) were classmates, the original Band of the Hawks members were partly inspired by Miura's high school classmates, etc. And yes, Miura did draw inspiration from HnK and RoV who were some of his favorite manga. Of course when you read "inspiration" it could mean only as much as appearance wise. You can't deny Guts and Griffith are like two diametrically opposed worlds clashing into one. Guts being the epitome of manliness and Griffith being the aesthetic bishonen.

16:9 is significantly closer to the nominal natural vision aspect ratio of human beings with two eyes.

16:9 gets you something like 30% more anime than 4:3 which necessarily requires

* stretching the video (unacceptable)
* black bars (acceptable but wastes space)
* zoom crop (almost never acceptable)

and let's not even going into the absolutely GOD AWFUL resolution, bitrate, encoding, audio (encoding), etc that old releases have

anime is probably the medium that most benefits from technology advancement which is why everyone is so elitist about 'muh madVR'

you cannot justify this elitism along with your propensity to watch 4:3 old animes. you cannot have your cake and eat it too.

No man can serve two masters. You can either support the di/a/z "way of life, or be a nostalgiafag and watch technologically inferior things

the problem is the vast majority of old things are terrible, just like the vast majority of new things. actually often the old things are slightly more terrible.

but nostalgia blinds them and clouds their judgement, making them think old things were not terrible

Old Anime I'm Currently watching:
>OVA's
Baoh: The Visitor, Crying Freeman, Dominion Tank Police, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure (1993 and 2000), Doomed Megalopolis
>Movies
I'm going though a mild Miyazaki phase(Porco Rosso, Luputa: Castle in the Sky, Nausicca, Princess Mononoke)
Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie(1994), Vampire Hunter D(1985) Wicked City (1987)
>TV
Cowboy Bebop, The DIC dub of Sailor Moon (really, is it worth watching the Japanese?) Fist of the North Star, Nazca (1998)

I think I've found I like old anime better than new. Not that I'm an elitist, but I find that you need a few years to see if it's really good or not.

Last thing I finished was Aura Battler Dunbine, which I actually enjoyed quite a bit, and I don't normally like Tomino shows (not because of the death count, but because I usually don't like Tomino's directorial approach to telling stories).

Normally most of the old stuff I watch ends up being OVAs and movies though. I'm usually not in the mood to invest myself in shows that run for fifty or more episodes unless the story manages to keep moving at a good clip (Saint Seiya managed to string me along for 70-some episodes with its cliffhangers.)

Metropolis by Osamu "God of Manga" Tezuka from 1949.

It's really cartoony, not like the 2001 movie adaptation which is much more serious. It's also apperent how much Tezuka liked Walt Disney, Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck look alike make several appearances throughout the book.

I watched Dunbine a few years ago, and have been rewatching each episode, week by week, on the day it aired 30 years ago. Next Tuesday is the finale.

It's a good show, but it has a lot of filler. However, the filler is less noticeable when you're watching one episode per week.

Funny thing about Metropolis is that Tezuka was never really proud of it, and didn't want it animated at all.

He waited a lot longer than that, though. Also it appears that the real reason he waited so long was so he could employ large amounts of CGI.

It should be noted that the movie bears little resemblance to the Manga and probably is more comparable to the Fritz Lang film of the same name.

Most of my favorite anime/manga are older serie.
For some reason, I just love them, because because you can always see a bit of the times in them, no matter what kind of series it is. You can watch almost any futuristic 80s series, and you'll find that no one has anything like a cellphone around.

I like seeing what the characters do for fun, and how they deal with communication without cellphones. Not that I hate cellphone, but they've had a big impact on how things are done these days, that I like to take notice of it.
Besides that, there's so much gold out there, great series that has a great run, and without any of the nuiances that I dislike in current anime. No LN garbage, no shit about little sisters, no harem nonsense.

But at the same time, it makes me said. There' a lot of creativity and great stories, and they just pass through time like nothing. No one else talks about them. No one else remembers them. Unless it was a runaway hit, there's no reunion special, no remake, nothing. No one else remembers it but you. Imagine being the fan of an OVA or something back then, that's all you've got. I guess like everyone else, you've got to move on, but it's like finding out about a gold rush after it's already happened

But of course, it's easy to get disillusioned. When I turn back to watch something old, I can watch whatever I want and the series has already been completed, I'm not watching everything

>technologically inferior
Are you really going to fucking argue that the technological prowess of the medium of a piece of art is what makes it superior? I guess CGI models are better than La Pieta (ha, stone is a Neanderthal material) and Kill la Kill is a masterpiece of literature superior to the works of Shakespeare, which were written on paper (that's not even 16:9 lol pleb). Not to even mention the fact that hand drawn cels are still the objectively superior format in terms of upscaling and video quality.

Your post is hands down the most autistic I have seen in years on 4chan and I really recommend you commit suicide.

Basara from Macross 7

I kept telling myself it was macross, but couldn't recall which. I forget 7 even exists.
>>
What is /a/'s opinion on Ideon?
>>
>>100272668
How could you forget about Macross 7? It's got more animated content associated with it than any other series in the franchise.

I watch my Gendams and am currently half way through Dancouga

I wish Dancouga was good so I could bear watching it for the VA cast.

Be Invoked is one of my all-time favorite anime movies

There should be a guide or an image guide for newer generations, so they could look into the past and read awesome manga.

The first season was really fun. Especially since I was drinking the whole time and my reactions were far too generous. HNK2 was a bit hard to watch after they went to the island though. That was only bearable due to my drinking.
>>
>>100272791

I've been meaning to watch it, but I have too much on my plate already.

Char being a general dick to the Zabis makes this incredibly satisfying. Oh and...once the episodes of 0079 are mass produced....
>>
The Hakkenden worth checking out?

It's fun watching stuff like Crusher Joe or old Cyberpunk anime and seeing how primitive the supposedly futuristic computers operate.
>>
I have the entire Slayers collection. Slowly but surely combing through it. It's really fun. Seen bits and pieces of the original as a child, glad to have my mitts on the whole series, good times.

That's the dub though.

Whatever Happened to the Vinny Mac? Two volumes in and the manga was dropped ;_;

How is Urusei Yatsura? Is it worth the near 200 episode watch? I sort of want to see the film of it which oshii directed most of all.

I promise you, if you are alive in 30 years and still watching anime, I will bring this character archetype back to the forefront.
>>
>>100277345
The Oshii film is pretty fine to watch alone, assuming everyone has the basic idea of the love triangle for lulz dynamics that are the premise.

The good old days, back when Kawamoto designs still looked like Kawamoto.

>The DIC dub of Sailor Moon (really, is it worth watching the Japanese?)

Definitely, as long as you accept that it's completely different and many parts of it won't be as good as they are in DiC's version (which I still very much like and will willingly defend), though naturally there are tons of things that more then make up for this. The fact that there is no evil Negaverse and each of the villains have their own individual motivations and reasons for their actions alone makes it worth watching.

If you really liked Jupiter for instance, the Japanese will likely disappoint you with how her character is handled. On the other hand, Mercury and Mars are enormously better characters.

I read HnK while it still had the gap in the manga. Project Bite Me closed that gap, right? Is the complete version on Batoto, Bakabt, AB, etc. to download?
>>
HnK is garbage.
>>
Yes, Space Pirate Captain Harlock is good.

I'm ashamed to admit it, but sometimes when I try to watch pre-80s stuff the art style and shit res really does get to me, I've dropped some shows I really wanted to watch for this reason.

I wonder if they'll remake HnK.

Best sub group that's still active.

They've been active for ages. Their old release of Rose of Versailles is absolutely awful but I guess that's the fault of the raws rather than them.
