Anyone want to have an anime history thread?

I like learning about it so I thought why not?
>>
The best way to learn it is to watch it. And pay attention to the credits so you can see who's working on what.

>The Harem Genre was invented by Urusei Yatsura, but was re-invented by Tenchi Muyo!, which refined and popularized the "harem anime" formula (ordinary guy lives with a bunch of attractive, quirky girls). In addition to the episodic plots it had longer story arcs and a protagonist one would want to root for instead of smack. Six years later, Love Hina further tweaked the formula by dropping the action/fantasy elements of Tenchi in favor of a straight-up romantic comedy, making The Protagonist more of a sadsack, upping the wacky hijinks and setting new rules for the genre: namely, an Unlucky Everydude male protagonist who lives with a bunch of girls who all fall in love with him simply because he's a nice and sensitive guy, with the gaps in the plot smoothed over with dollops of fanservice. Almost every harem series since has followed its lead

I don't think I'll ever get Love Hina's popularity but I think this will help

A lot of people think of Cutie Honey as the first magical girl series for boys and it was technically, but Majokko Megu-chan was like 'the' mahou shojo anime to codify it to an even older audience

And there's STILL NO SUBS

look fellas, just watch the older shit and you'll find out a lot more than what people can tell you.

My favorite directors are tomino and imagawa. I found out why tomino gained his reputation by watching most of his shows and came to find out that my favorite anime happened to be the one that established him as an all character killing mother fucker... Zambot 3.

I watched a lot of imagawa's shows and came to learn that being able to trust your father is a recurring theme in a lot of his shows and that he is a great director despite his shows not selling much. His work on tetsujin 28-gou is outstanding, and one of my favorites.

There are a lot of other things I learned from digging into the past and I could go on and on about uncle go, uncle ishikawa and various studios but I think I've made my point.

UY actually invented a deconstruction of a harem.
Since no one liked Ataru at all, maybe the current harem anime are all deconstructions of UY.

Also, OP read this book its breddy gud.

>I don't think I'll ever get Love Hina's popularity

It's popular because it's babys first anime. For many anime watchers back in the late 90s, it was one of the first (harem) animes, which helped it spread even further among more new anime fans as they were sharing their bootleg shows with each other. So it was fairly iconic at the time, and lots of weeb shops were selling love hina merchandise like them wall scrolls.

It's at the far end of the adaptation train into plebdom. Real books > comic books > chinese cartoons. Talking about themes in anime is a bit of a joke considering most are just pulling randomly from greater works or are slipshod adaptations riding on the success of an existing manga, only with more pandering.

What was the first anime to have more than one opening credit sequence? I'm thinking Urusei Yatsura, but I'm not sure.

Western cartoons were actually better or on par during the same time period.

What went wrong?
>>
>>100476329
Who wrote this?

First, Although Urusei Yatsura has some dedication to the emergence Harem Genre it does not belong to Harem Genre. It is the Simpsons of anime. A pioneering classic combining comedy and SF (that, is vital to anime in the 80's thanks to Gundam and the booming of "real robot" Genre) and the first anime ever adopt dark humor.

Second, Tenchi Muyo is merely just a plagiarization of Urusei Yatsura. Both Tenchi Muyo and Love Hina has absolutely no significance in the history of anime. They are just familiar to western anime viewers due to they got licensed in the 90's, like Outlaw Star.

>Love Hina further tweaked the formula by dropping the action/fantasy elements of Tenchi in favor of a straight-up romantic comedy

Although romantic comedy wasn't main stream in the 80's. Kimagure Orange Road and Maison Ikkoku did a much better job of exploring the potential of romantic comedy genre years ago and that indirectly lead to the emergence of Harem Genre.

I've noticed that this show has PLENTY of 80's/70's callbacks, I mean fuck they JUST had kamen rider in the last episode

>>100480558
Hannah Barbera and their cheap animation, also lots of american cartoons were actually animated in Japan (like the transformers). America doesn't have the manga culture so cartoons are still considered kiddie shit and poorly done.

(I'm talking general trends, i know lots of anime are kiddie shit and lots of cartoons are not just toy commercials)
>>
>>100480099
If going to be nit picky;
That one turtle general from that school invaded by Sanageyama looks like the turtle devil from Devilman.

Also the plot on invading schools feels like that school rebellion manga I forgot the title.
The MC from that manga is a transfer student, while its rival have family problems. Much like Ryuuko & Satsuki.

There could be more, but I'm not too familiar with Go Nagai.

These are great. I love seeing the style changes over time. Though it makes me angry at todays style of anime that is in a lot of ways not at all suited to animation.
