Remembah the 90s?
I am the 90's.
Remember the 80's?
Kids these days. How can they sleep at night.
it was the best part of my life because I was still a kid and had friends. now I'm sad...
had some cool anime too
mfw the 90s.
Do you Remember Love?
>mfw everything people are complaining on /a/ about happened in the 90s
>or the 80s
Generic 90s style is still better than the generic style today.
Anything hand-drawn just feels more authentic. That's why I am enjoying KLK, because it has all those rough sketchy shots where you can see every stroke of the markers/pens.
I agree. Digital work killed the charm.
Ｒｅｍｅｍｂｅｒ ｔｈｅ １９９０ｓ． ／ 忘れることができません。
>Remembah the 90s?
Anyone on /a/ remember something they weren't alive for?
I wanna watch this again.
That bike looked like a 3D model, it was drawn so well. Also, the falling giant wires and shit from the Akira ball opening scene. The style was delicious.
>Redline was the very last thing that was totally hand drawn
>There will never be anything hand drawn again
ITT: some 16 year old kids try extra hard to anonymously prove that they are allowed to be on an 18+ forum to some mods that don't care about anything other than if you insult their pet nigger
Anyone remember noses?
Did you see the dogs in that one scene? Those were some of the best animated things in the movie, in my opinion.
They will remember the 90s. The 90s doesn't die.
I don't even remember last year. But I do remmbr that I still love Slayers.
No, what's that
I'm going to watch Utena again
Just how insecure can you get? This is not really different from a nostalgia thread. Do you assume those are about "proving" you're old enough too? 4/10 for making me reply
Escaflowne is one of my favorite anime.
currently watching some G Gundam for the first time. 2 episodes in and its breddy good so far.
FRY THE SKY
EL-Hazardridge Farms does.
What about Rayearth?
How mindfucky is Utena? Is it NGE levels of mindfuck? I've only seen the first few episodes and it's OK, but I want to know if it gets more interesting later in the series
I wish there was like, a weekly friday 3-hour segment I could watch with other people from /a/ and /jp/ with different 90s animes.
I still have a couple cels from El-Hazard
You're a scholar and a gentleman.
Not so much mindfuck, more symbolism and subtlety.
Except the movie. That's just fucking rad
>citing the worst example in anime
Also the worst example of lips in anime history. Seriously, who was on crack when they approved this character design?
Kids these days, they don't know.
I'm pretty sure everyone who liked Escaflowne will agree to say the movie is poor related material compared to the series.
Utena isn't a mindfuck. It just loses all meaning to its story at the Black Rose arc. Before that point, it had quite a lot of good characters and development going. Then 3/4 those characters just become pointless at the Black Rose arc and it becomes like Sailor Moon SS.
The movie however...is a mindfuck. Semi Trucks and lesbians.
>you will never pilot a giant robot
Man, I really thought that shit was coming when I was a kid.
I miss the all of the optimism in 80s and 90s anime. Why'd you have to fuck up so bad, Japan? You almost made it.
That reminds me, I also have a few You're Under Arrest cels.
>Renting anime tapes
>Watchin' Sci-Fi on Saturday
>Waking up early for Sailor moon and Ronin Warriors
Nostalgia goggles officially set to maximum
I´m just running in the 90s.
Anon, you don't have to lie to kick it.
I get it you are 18*WINK WINK* but there is no reason to pretend you are some grandpa just so you can impress other anons who are also 18*WINK WINK* pretending like they are middle aged just they can impress other anons etc etc etc
Don't you see where this is all going?
Obviously from one of the better animated/drawn eps.
Shit was corny as fuck. I'm actually embarrassed I liked this as a kid.
I remember buying 2 cels for CardCaptor Sakura and they were my prized possessions. I almost got a cel for the dance scene in the second movie, but the ebay auction went up to $300 dollars. No way I was gonna be able to buy it for that much...
Looking back, I'm glad I didn't bother buying it. Turns out the cels don't appreciate any value. So sad for those artists.
/k/ does not approve
You will never hear the Digimon OP for the first time ever again and feel that childhood hype.
You could always start streaming stuff. I know I'd join in.
Remember Chun-li´s pantsu?
The most expensive cel I got was around 1000 yen or so, but I never got any really good ones.
You're the one who is not impressing me.
>tfw no Butterfly
remember the 80's?
Pantsu? She was full on naked in the shower in one scene.
>It was a good show
seriously, fuck you for reminding me
FOR MY PRIDE
It was a good show.
I just happened to finish reading that.
>remember the 90's?
that is all
>There are people who have not watched Slayers on /a/
I was born in the late 90s so unfortunately I do not remember the 90s.
I remember the days before everybody had a broadband connection.
The Internet was a lot quiet, but the fans were hardcore.
And then 4chan was invented.
I owned two pairs of JNCOs and I wore them almost daily. I sure was cool. Now /fa/gs all wear tight fitting clothes.
>downloading all 20 gigs of Hajime no Ippo at 5.5kb/s
>takes 3 weeks
But I still did it!
I remember when you kids started wearing those JNCOs
They looked fucking retared, but nearly as retarded as this skinnyjeans bullshit.
What do you have against comfort and not looking ridiculous anon?
Remember actually buying anime?
I miss doing that.
WHO GRENDIZER HERE
Nope, don't remember.
The 90s? I was running in the 90s.
I still use mIRC, actually. I just never bothered to switch my client.
It's sometimes refreshing to jump back into the 1990s anime era when you watch shows from the 2000s. It gives you a perspective.
>posting 80's stuff.
Not gonna lie...made me laugh harder than I'd like to admit...
Ah the years when magic-light-san hadn't been hired yet.
Good old rec.arts.anime.misc. Anyone else remember the Cute Wars?
This is so beautiful I could masturbate to it.
thank you thats how I been reading this whole tread.
To be fair, dozens of different people have re-worked the design on Slayers over the years. Not to mention 3 different studios doing the animation for the show. Having so many different people handling the series over the years, its lucky something like Slayers Rev/Evo didn't happen sooner.
You don't already masterbate to Lina and Canal?
My parents would buy VHS tapes of Saint Seiya and they built up a pretty nice collection. They weren't even into it, but back then there wasn't anything wrong with kids watching those Chinese cartoons.
20 years from now, people will be making threads like this about the 10's, and how anime looked better before full-cgi.
Sorry, I was unclear- I meant the glowing light that hides boobs and whatnot that we see in a lot of modern anime (to sell BDs later). We didn't see as much of that back then.
But as for Slayers, you're right, we were lucky- well, until our luck ran out. Oh well.
Here, have some PC-98 (I think) Lina.
>1990 was 50 years ago
Thanks for being such a debbie downer Julian.
That 90s tm revolution
I would but... Being a major in Accounting and Business made me forget all the wonderful things I watched. Someone with real intact knowledge of what to show would be required.
>Remembah the 90s?
No, because I was born in 1996.
That 2000s anime was a shitload better?
Did your parents watch anime?
>you were born too late to live as a young adult through the 90's hoarding vhs, laserdisc and crt screens
>major in Accounting and Business
What does that have to do with anything?
I'm an engineering major and bust my ass too, but I still remember the good old days.
>mfw i called it Blue Seed 9
>mfw that omake with Kunikida trading pics with Mamoru marked the first time i fapped to anime.
>mfw when i had to keep rewinding the tape to the same scene over and over again till i came.
>mfw it kicked off my "HURR ANIME IS SO MATURE! JAPAN BANZAI!" phase, ignoring anything that didn't have nipples in it, missing out on CCS and Pokemon as a kid.
I'd agree with 2010-onwards, but a lot of the early 2000s was pretty dire.
VHS wasn't a big miss, neither were most CRTs (especially the shit interlaced ones). The big thing you missed out on was the early internet. Sure it was slow, but it was also open.
I never thought I'd miss something like geocities, especially back then when I had usenet (and FTP sites), but it's funny how things change.
I do remember the 90's, because every third or so show I watch is from 90's or older.
In fact, I just finished watching Nuku Nuku yesterday.
You can't stop progress, Julian.
O-Of course not. I'm a little girl, so I obviously wasn't running around having fun during that time. ;_;
'90s were so awesome, we needed a head start
>I'd agree with 2010-onwards, but a lot of the early 2000s was pretty dire.
People need to stop judging anime based on time periods. Many of the shows that came out between 2000-2005 were excellent. especially GTO, Hajime no Ippo, Princess Tutu, Angelic Layer, Pita Ten, Haruhi and more.
Every 'time period' has their good shows and a large selection of bad shows.
I like you. You're a pretty cool guy and I want to be your friend.
As a friend, I want to tell you. For the love of GOD, do NOT watch Nuku Nuku DASH! DON'T DO IT! JUST DON'T!
Just start out showing some popular stuff like Utena or Patlabor and poll people on what they'd like to see next. Pull out some random obscure thing like The Hakkenden every once in a while and you've got yourself the big stupid /a/nime club of your dreams.
Because Government and Nonprofit accounting (and finance) are literally mind raping.
I don't even remember any of those things ;-;.
I've been meaning to get around to watching CCS for a while now.
I know it wouldn't be the same as watching on VHS or the like, but I really haven't much other choice.
Should I go for Coalgirls, or something else?
Is this thread not the right place to ask? Sorry, I don't want to make another thread just to ask this.
>tfw the 90s
>I never thought I'd miss something like geocities, especially back then when I had usenet (and FTP sites), but it's funny how things change.
This. I remember complaining about stuff like mIRC, hotline and the early 4chan. Now I look back on those things as being super open and 'civil' compared to the shit hole the internet is now.
Its like comparing the continental congress, a small group of feuding friends who eventually came together to found a nation (what the internet was in the 90s up until 2005). To a shithole third world nation at war (what the internet is today).
Then it'll be like you're watching them for the first time. Come on, man, make your dreams a reality.
The big problem with the early 2000s was the changeover to digital coloring. It took a while before they learned how to use it properly.
Also, wasn't Haruhi from 2006?
Yeah. It was more satisfying than now.
It has Megumi in it, so you better give me a damn good reason not to watch it, friend.
Are those things in yellow in that picture her tits? Because if they are I am happy
When it will be universally understood that this was one the best TV anime series of the 90s?
Just watch the coalgirls one. Its the same subtitles, just blown up to ridiculous 1080p resolution. As long as your computer can handle the playback of that resolution, its definitely worth it.
And enjoy one of the best anime ever made.
>panty shot: the anime
Escaflowne is one of the best.
Not enough moe for /a/
>there was never a 26 episode Project A-ko series
I was looking at some old usenet posts the other day, and people kept complaining about one guy flaming. I honestly had to re-read his posts several times until I could figure out why they called it a flame. It all seemed so polite, and sometimes even well-written.
It took everything good Nuku Nuku did and destroyed it. Trying to make it into a 'cyberpunk/ultra 90s cool' setting. Think all those horrible early 90s movies like Judge Dredd or Time Cop, except it doesn't have the 'its so bad its awesome' vibe to it. Its just 'so bad its fucking horrible'.
And the chief reason its so horrible being that they made Nuku Nuku an emotionless android.
But by all means, go ahead and try it if you want.
>It has Megumi in it, so you better give me a damn good reason not to watch it, friend.
That IS the only reason to watch it. ;_;
56k Modem from early torrents.
Why would you want Project A-ko on a TV budget?
Got a link?
Despite the blatant fanservice and moe pandering, the staffs from 80s/90s fap material really tried to do their best with the material they received. It didn't work most of the times but it was some effort. Maybe it was the OVA format that worked better for otaku stuff than a 12 episodes anime
Well it's got C-ko for sure.
It's not enough fanservice or moe for /a/.
It was never aired on Toonami enough for ANN.
Who will love this show?
There will never be revival of Project A-ko or Dirty Pair. At least hope one day we will get BDs for them. I know unlikely that is for Project A-ko.
It's pretty close.
Fuck the 90s, what a horrible decade to live in.
Moe was just a fad they said
It was going to die they said
More than this, many shows from the 90s actually improved the material they got. Take for example Saber Marionette. The manga itself is one of the most borderline hentai manga ever conceived. And has a pretty weak plot. But the anime of both Saber Marionette R and Saber Marionette J turned that around to have a strong scifi plot and well developed characters with far more than just pointless ecchi. While still having plenty of reference to the ecchi itself.
Too bad Saber Marionette J to X killed it or else to show might have continued to this day...maybe even competing with something like Love Hina or Mahoromatic.
>Hayashibara has made it known that she misses playing Lina and wishes there were more to the Slayers anime so she could perform as the character more. She has said on more than one occasion that Lina is "sleeping" inside her heart, ready to be summoned for another performance.
Someday, my brothers.
>Who will love this show?
Well, shit, man, sell me on it, why don't you?
Moe got worse after the lost decade. From a fanservice element, it become the entire center of the anime; even to the point the narrative was completely disregarded in order to make cute characters according to otakus's very especific demands. That's not the best enviroment for a creative medium
>Fuck the 90s, what a horrible decade to live in.
Only a child would say this. You should be glad you didn't live in and time from the 1920s-1970s.
The only thing the 90s kids had to worry about was future job security thanks to the baby boomers. Which didn't kick in until this decade.
Unfortunately it was a while back, and I forgot to save it.
I'm old enough to remember how awful the 90s were, and not just because I have a nostalgia boner for the 80s. It's not my fault that people who were 5 years old during the 90s, and that think their opinion of that decade matters, have such strong presence in the internet
I think she said that before Slayers Rev/Evo came out.
Let's hope more Slayers will get made and Rev/Evo didn't kill it. I'd actually like to see a remake of Lost Universe myself. But I'd say there's even less of a chance of that.
What show was this
I bet if Karekano was made today, the studio would hire some cheap hack and the result would be an uninspired piece of shit even worse than the already shitty manga. After all, shoujo animes are just infomercials for the manga because the industry is dominated by otakus and fujoshis/otomefags.
Yes, I'm mad
The American economy was at its strongest point in the 90s and many of the most popular movies/cartoons came out in the 90s. People are not just having 'nostalgia' because of it. I have no idea where you're coming from.
If you disliked rap or grunge, or hated the tendancy for Hollywood to make huge blockbuster movies like Titanic, I agree with you. But that doesn't change the fact that America as a whole was a lot more prosperous and 'happy' in the 90s.
Coalgirls also has a 720p version. Wasn't worried about not being able to play it. It's the ludicrous file size (somewhat understandable for a 70-episode anime) that put me off somewhat.
Can't believe I didn't find this potential gold any sooner.
>Techi Muyo's first OVA is over 20 years old, soon Tenchi Universe will be 20 years old
Someone hold me.
>many of the most popular movies/cartoons came out in the 90s
I already told you, it's because there are way too many "90s kids" in the internet. American economy can suck my dick.
Early 00s>80s>late 00s>90s>the last few years
I want Knight Of The Aqua Lord animated- I figure it'd work well.
Perhaps you just have different values than the rest of us, anon. Can we agree to disagree?
You're just bitching because you didn't like the 90s, but not providing any 'reasons' why. Aside from 'I hated that shitty decade'
Please stop shitting up this thread unless you're going to talk about anime.
>joining the jap battle
remember when they knew how to draw hips?
>You will never fight at Lina Inverse's side in battle.

I remember doing a lot of studying about "first mover advantage" at my Uni business classes. Worked for Amazon, but pets or govworks, not so much.
90's the OP.
>they still haven't made a Slayers ARPG with Diablo style combat
>There are multiple ways to watch CCS
For fuck's sake. It's Haruhi all over again.
Which method is better? By release date or series timeline? Does it even matter?
Not to prove you wrong, but they actually got better at drawing hips. And asses, breasts and pretty much everything. The only quarrel is that the digital coloring looks 'washed out' compared to old oil inking.
...what? There's only one way to watch CCS.
There is no chronological shifting like Haruhi.
>56k Modem from early torrents.
Shiiiit man, could you at least prioritize files to watch as you went?
I miss the days when anime women could have standard looks and still have a beautiful and recognizable design.
The multiple methods thing threw me off. Sorry about that.
So. 1-35, Film I, 36-70, Film II, then the SP included?
Not that I remember. In fact, I believe I had to wait for the whole thing to finish downloading. But that may have just been because of my own ignorance.
Yup, that's exactly the order you need to watch the show in. And for this show, you definitely don't want to skip ahead.
Whats going on in this thread children?
Thanks, anon. Downloading the first few episodes now. I'll hit my data cap if I download the whole thing now.
Every fucking time.
>Best girl didn't appear until Universe
Though Mihoshi was a nice consolation...
>Remembah the 90s?
Hell yes I do.
That was a time when we all socialized with each other in person and didn't do this shit with cell phones.
I really do love the coloring and shading of older stuff. But that kind of thing is hard to do with 3D models
is this even any good? I mean the music seems pretty cool but from what i've seen in videos I don't really like the look of the cg cars that much
Ouch, sorry you have a data cap.
luck infused cat girls
thats some crazy shit
gb2 the old folks' home, gramps.
I'm almost never on my phone with friends, unless I'm taking a picture or video of us to share with others.
I miss 2D girls comfortable with their sexuality instead of the pure waif bullshit
That is the day I die
Nigger there are plenty of whores in anime today.
I only know one other person in real life who's ever seen Irresponsible Captain Tylor. Which is a shame because it's not only one of the funniest space opera anime out there, but actually has some of the best character development of any space anime I've seen.
I know that feel all too well anon
We were born in a wonderful time.
Aw shit that Anime, so good.
I shouldnt want..............but I do
It seems to me the 80s were pretty good for hips, then we sort of backslid in the 90s, only to see some nice improvements nowadays.
I got the witch girl
remember when anime girls got red in the face and it made that ding sound?
She was hands down THE most annoying character in all of anime
Yeah. So am I. Fucking Comcast.
At least it was better than AT&T.
>No one will ever sub Lemon Angel.
Just check out this masterpiece.
Mah Nigga. One of these days im gonna have a United Planets Space Force flag made and hang dat shit up
Dear lord, good gd. Stupid short skirts, super panty shots, and unfitting music. I don't understand, make it stop.
Close, but not quite.
I really don't think that's gone away much actually
And now it's time for "90s anime only you watched"
It's funny because Ryvius was quite popular when it came out.
Wait a minute. that's from the 80s
Is it just me or was ED's from the 90's so much better then they are now
I don't really feel the OP's are any better or worse, but for some reason today's ED's just seem shittier.
Dai-Guard- it was a bit too slow for fans at the time.
I've watched through it and the specials a couple of times.
I love it.
I'm not even into space anime, the show is just that good.
It really deserves to get seen by more people.
I think Dai-Guard is more known than Ryvius
Here's another. One of my favorite magical girls
I bet episode 3 was ruined for you.
Okay, how about Shamanic Princess?
The KanaHana of the 90s
You mean there are other IRC clients that don't suck?
irssi in a remote shell
Super Atragon/Shin Kaitei Gunkan
Thanks to the anon who recommended it to me.
even though you're right, mink's hips are the greatest
megu the cutie on the left
Where's her best role of all time?! fushigidane
In the 90s, magical girls had submarines that shoot magic lasers, and they were fighting against muricans in conventional submarines.
What do they do now? They get floofy hair after transforming.
Yes! She voiced my wiafu, Lina Inverse
The 80s did round talking birds before Tamako Market did.
This game is for 1990 and early 2000 nostalgia
It actually is really good. Sure, the cars could look better, but then again, we are talking about the 90s.
But Dominion tank is 1980 or early 1990?
mmmm canon hard nips
From what I've seen, the first CCS ED is probably the only ED that I will never skip. Ever. As the series goes on, that number might reach 3.
This is the best ED I've ever heard, and it's from 1980.
Someone needs to start a 90s anime stream
So Nobunaga The fool is a rip-off Escaflowne?
And another thing. There's something about 90s anime OPs that doesn't happen in today's anime OPs. There's a sort of certain charm to it. Something that I can't find in almost any of today's anime. You guys know where I'm getting at?
What do you mean? Do you have any examples of OPs that have a lot of this certain charm?
From what I can recollect, the CCS and Evangelion OPs are the first ones that come to mind. I'm not sure what exactly it is, but I just have this feeling.
Same guy who wrote this:
If you haven't figured it out, he's the guy who wrote the music for the game series Dragon Quest.
Isn't he also a crazy racist?
Honestly, the first CCS ending annoyed a lot of people. People make fun of it with its 'WHOOOO!' start up and how it kind of doesn't fit with the rest of the show. But then, the third ending Fruits Candy had the same overly hyped up 'Eurobeat' feel to it, which just didn't seem to fit the otherwise calm and feel good atmosphere of the show. There was nothing worse than seeing a highly emotional scene where Touya had just gotten done tucking Sakura into bed and she was smiling falling sleep...fade to black and...."WHOOO!!!!!!! NANANANANANAAAAA!!!" Fucking shit!
I honestly preferred the second ending Honey by far. Its one of my favorite endings in all of anime. And fit both the emotional and calm ending a lot of the episodes tried to portray.
I've wonder which 90s male/female seiyuu will re-ignite their career once again
No. He sided with a political party which tried to downplay the scope of the Japanese atrocities in World War II. Which many people of his generation did. Saying he's racist is like saying a lot of people in his generation (Japanese and White) are racist. Which ti an extent, they are. As many of them were pumped full of so much war doctrine and hate during WWII that its still a part of them.
But he never has stated anything blatantly 'racist' like 'I hate Chinese people and White people'. On the contrary, he has gone to Britian many times and worked directly with the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
I hope its Ogata Megumi. She's seriously the most versatile seiyuu ever.
Alright. I guess "nationalist" would've been the better term, and it might not be fair to call him crazy.
Tylor is fucking fantastic and everyone with the slightest inkling of enjoying sci-fi should watch it.
I tell people it's basically Slayers in SpaceDouble appropriate if they watch the dub and that seems to help people understand the tone.
Oh, and the climax in episode 23 is easily one of the most fantastic things I've ever seen in an anime ever.
>Panties that actually are realistic instead of stylish and unsightly
This is actually the only thing I miss about long ago and far away anime.
inbr granny panties—fuck you no one wears t-backs unless they're sluts, and shimapan is just pandering bullshit.
Is Danganronpa the most recent big thing she's done that isn't Evangelion?
I mean, on it's own, the first ED is pretty good. It's when the ED is used that's the problem. They pulled the same shit with Evangelion.
Panty shots themselves are pandering bullshit. You are searching for degrees of class in fucking panty shots.
I think they're more fancy now because of computer technology.
I guess it is.
Looking at her voice roles, she still seems to be working, but it is very sparingly. Seems to be only one role every 1-2 years like Hayashibara Megumi now. What's with all these 35-40 year old Seiyuu taking on such weak schedules? Marriage shouldn't be a deathmark on a career anymore...
You know what, I will work on a server just for specifically for that for all you niggas
It's the market. The market wants YOUNG PURE WAIFU IDOL seiyuus and is scared of admitting any of them age past 30.
Fucking Japan will make Logan's Run come true.
>music writer for Dragon Quest
>writing music for Mecha Anime and Godzilla
This is why I love 4chan. Now I have to watch these things.
I will be honest, before I was into anime, I just saw panties as pieces of cloth, no different from a girl wearing a swimsuit or pants. There was nothing special about them.
I don't know why that changed, but panty shots don't have to be some weird pandering thing that people make a big deal out of.
It's the creators that make them into a big deal. They want to make your wiener warm and hard with that shit. Though I have seen a select few innocuous panty shots, like in Nausicaa.
Dream of the 90s
1990 was 24 years ago....
No doubt the overwhelming majority of people on 4chan were born in the 90's...and in a few years that may become the 00's
That being said, most anime in the 90's was terrible.
Spoiler: Most anime is terrible.
Practically every single Miyazaki movie has a panty shot in it. Yet somehow he makes it seem not important, as if it was unavoidable. And it just 'happened' because of the wind.
All these other series focus the camera right on the panties or worse, specifically tear off the girls clothes to make the panties visible. Like in Blue Seed seen up at >>100745784. The entire first 2 episodes are specifically built around a tentacle monster which has no other purpose aside from ripping off Momiji's clothes.
I've seen all of Infinite Ryvius. RYVIUS! Will never forget its awesome R&B op.
Can you show more respect?
serious doubts she'll make a huge return soon
They count years different in asia.
I always wonder how kids who were born too late view the 90s now
PRAISE BE! PRAISE BE!
Just give me a list of what I can put on there Heh
this is going to be a fun project
there is always an alternative, have 30 & over idol anime series
Slice of life battle between MILFS vs the new guard, mother vs daughter idol battle.

Do not worry, anouwn.
I will become a bigshot money man, and fund more Slayers anime/adaptions myself.
>The late 90s/early 2000s
I actually forgot how different a beast things used to be, back then. Usenet, mailing lists, the endless deluge of Ranma 1/2 love, legbearded hambeasts generally preoccupied with a few smatterings and Fushigi Yuugi...
Fanfiction dot net was the place that was clearly poison, and it was just better to have a mass bookmark folder full of fansites and fanfiction pages. I remember being so damned proud of the time I could walk up and purchase Devil Hunter Yohko over a counter.
I remember fucking Suncoast.
Everything's so different, now. I still have a fuck-huge bookmarks folder. And almost 90% of it is nothing but dead links. ff.net is king on high. All the old haunts are gone.
shit, probably a lot of the fanfic authors I followed are dead or nowhere near anything fandom-related, now....
Holy shit, I never even knew I had this nostalgia. What happened to them?
> legbearded hambeasts generally preoccupied with a few smatterings and Fushigi Yuugi...
I still remember going to Anime Expo in 1999 and the big event that year was the author of Fishugi Yuugi being there... And the fangirls...so many fricken fangirls running around.
I never felt so conspicuous in all my life. At a place where I should have felt right at home.
But the absolute worst was whenever you tried to walk into any store with an anime section and buy something. Be it Suncoast, Fry's or your local anime hole in the wall store. There would ALWAYS be that one lonely fat kid who just hangs around the store 24/7 staring at the DBZ/Cowboy Bebop DVDs or reading Pokemon Manga. And any time you reached over to pick up some DVD, he'd start glaring at you, judging you for what you were looking at. And if you dared to make eye contact with him, he'd start up a conversation with you about how great Cowboy Bebop or Trigun or Princess Mononoke was and would never let you leave.....
Based Obari. God of OPs.
Sounds like some things never change.
I challenge this:
Just found this while googling Suncoast, really takes you back to how things used to be.
I guess I need to look at a rec chart again, because I honestly can't name or remember 5 90's shows that I enjoyed.
Hmmm.. Well I suppose really famous stuff like slayers would be a start. Bubblegum Crisis? I dunno, Captain Tylor?
Anon help, lets make a list of things to watch together.
Reminder that some of the shittiest series in anime history were so fucking misleading with their OPs
Does anyone else feel like 1998-2002 was kind of like its own mini-decade in a lot of ways? It was such a different time than the rest of the 90s/2000s.
Fat losers at anime stores confirmed for killing the anime market in the west.
Nah, that was the cancellation of Toonami.
I still don't understand what the fuck they were thinking, most of the anime was the highest rated shows on the channel.
B-but Meguzi was soooo good
No, it wasn't.
What the fuck are Orphen and Lina doing in a thing with Kazama, Hiei, Frog guy, R.O.D. chick and Bloood+ girl?
Whatever it is, it must be #based.
I remember being tricked a few times.
When they launched that I stopped watching Cartoon Network for fucking years. Adventure Time and Regular Show brought me back though.
Whoever originally cancelled Toonami was fucking dumb.
You mean best shows of the 90s?
Saber Marionette J
Magic Knight Rayearth
All Purpose Cultural Cat Girl Nuku Nuku
You're Under Arrest!
Video Girl Ai
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou
Revolutionary Girl Utena
The Vision of Escaflowne
Great Teacher Onizuka
Hopefully a lot of people on /a/ will go watch these shows if you do get them all on a server.
Kusanagi has to find out what kind of panties she's wearing man, the monster was just helping
Probably stock holders who wanted to own shows outright for more profit.
Sailor moon is great, if only for some of the amazing animation errors.
A lot of complaints from concerned parents;
So they vanilla'd it up with Miguzi.
I think the most violent thing they aired was an edited version of an already edited Naruto.
SVES was cool, though.
Because they were repeating the same shows for literally 10 years. Remember, they've brought back Toonami and Adult Swim. And those shows are now the lowest rated shows on the network, being beaten by reruns of Family Guy and King of the Hill. They've dropped anime from 6 nights a week to one night a week.
Even the biggest anime nerds will get tired of watching Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the Shell and Full Metal Alchemist after watching the same episodes for 10-15 years straight.
They don't switch though because licensing is expensive.
I want them to animate the rest of the main novels and quit making shit up
Oh god this anime OST
>OP itself is enough to give you shivers it's so fucking good
>Viz does dub overs
>It's actually more than just passably good
>I still can't find a copy of the ost
Did Dragon Half ever get fully translated? Actually did it ever decide on a coherent story?
That and what are they gonna switch it to? THey've built up a fanbase of 'edgy' teens who have now grown to be 'edgy' 25-30 somethings who expect nothing but Sienen shows 'like Cowboy Bebop'. Aside from maybe Black Lagoon, Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood and an occasional movie...they have no market they can really draw from. They tried to get Eva on TV, but the censors (and tons of angry parents) bitched so hard that they got stopped by episode 6. They can't show something like Utawarerumono or Real Drive because their fanbase would hate it. They can't show something like Last Exile or Haruhi because again, their fanbase would throw a fit.
Basically, Adult Swim is screwed. Because the only shows they can focus on are shows 'like Cowboy Bebop' or 'Like Ghost in the Shell'.
That's a bit of an exaggeration. In its original run Toonami was picking up new shows at a pretty good pace, and didn't rerun shows more than Cartoon Network reran its own stuff.
The reason they're rated so low now is likely because of the timeslot. Put it back on when kids get home from school and the ratings would fucking skyrocket, even if you couldn't show shit like Space Dandy. I remember when Toonami would start at like 3 and go to 6 or 7, then on Saturdays they'd have their late-night block with slightly more mature stuff like Outlaw Star around 9. If they just went back to that and scheduled some shows like TTGL or maybe even JoJo whenever the dub comes out, they'd be fine.
I'm assuming more than one person pines for the days when they could casually go rent "cartoons" at their local video rental with mom's permission. the best times were when you knew your parents would be out of the house and you could use the VCR in the living room with the big TV.
You want digital?
Or do you want physical?
And yeah, I really liked the English take on the OP and ED.
In Blue Seed's defense, it's actually a gag set up and running joke more than it is "oh, hey, I wanna get you hard so here's some pantsu". I considered it Momiji's "Fukou da" than anything genuinely lewd or racy.
In a similar vein, take Ranma's casual nudity in girl form. You double-take once or twice, but really it's no biggie after that—just Ranma not being feminine conscious. But you are actively salivating every public bath episode because you just may HOPEFULLY get a peek and Akane's perky nips, or Nabiki's. Or Kasumi's. Or anyone that isn't Shampoo (not that she's a detractor, but she like Ranma just gives no fucks unless she needs to).
It's all in context, and most shows lack that split these days. And yeah, there really WAS a split. Panty flashing's always been around. But now it's...iunno.
Pushed out of business, much like many other stores before it. Think it had to do with finance budgets stretching further than profit could account for.
Slayers is in a unique situation. The series creator (Hajime Kanzaka) has stated there is two separate but equal canons. His original novels and the anime. The anime has deviated a lot from the Novels in some ways, but still taken a lot of insperation still.
For example, as much as Slayers Revolution and R-Evo was flawed, it still had 'some' connections to the novels. It was kind of like 30% inspired by the novels and 70% new material. New characters like Pokota were not the problem. The problem was how poorly they adapted the content from the novels. Because the first 3 seasons were also heavily altered from the Novels, but still really good.
They just need to go find the people who worked on the first 3 seasons and get them back to working on the show. Or find some really good new team....
Speaking of OPs and EDs getting translated, I also always liked the Lodoss OVA OP and ED in English, too.
Japan only wants little girls. America wants everything. America is ruining anime by being too demanding.
I wasn't saying it wasn't without context. Just that it was blatantly obvious in the first 2 episodes. Blue Seed has a lot more development as the show goes on. But in the first 2 episodes, its like they were making a tentacle hentai that just stopped at stripping the girls panties off. I mean, Momiji is screaming so much its like she's being raped....
Basically, the first 2 episodes are totally different from the comedic 'omake' feel of much of the rest of the show.
90's face is the best face
I am curious about this as well.
One of the worst series in history has one of the best OP songs ever. But it came out post 2000.
Its called Candidate for Goddess:
Thank's for the suggestions!
I think I have majority of those series somewhere.
I will start soon on preparing this, but if you guys would love to help out
Just let me know!
>Or do you want physical?
And there goes the last of the fun money from this week's paycheck. Time well-invested.
Ah yes Neo ranga
The Adventures of Brown Girl Shinji Under the Sea was always a good one.
Aside from the filler arcs.

>every episode of Saber Marionette J summarized
"OTARU KUUUUUUUUUUUUUN! DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!"
Not even complaining. Show was awesome. Hanagata and Cherry were the best.
True this. Completely true, in fact. I can't actually recall the last time I saw a three-minute scene of "girl wrapped up by tentacles and moaning helplessly".
...I'm sure someone is going to point me to Highschool DxD but I just can't force myself to watch that.

So...basically those 5 good episodes at the beginning and end of the show?
Tryhard shit that cocks up the manga.
disgusting, isn't it?
Sure. WHy not
Besides the dub actress you know the seiyuu did the OP in English too right?
I prefer its translation.
This is what makes the 90s different from now. Insert songs.
RIP in pieces. Taken far too early from us.
Man I don't know about you guys but I have a hard time enjoying what I loved in the 90s.
It's just not the same.
You forgot Golden Boy
Make a list then, homie
I never watched Evolution. I heard it have living armour Naga in it and I still can't do this after watching Revolution.
There's a lot I forgot. Because I haven't seen them so I couldn't know if they were worth listing. Like Dirty Pair, City Hunter, Outlaw Star or Bakumatsu Hunters. There's also a couple I have seen but just didn't think they were good enough to list like Nadesico or Fishugi Yuugi.
There's also some that I was hesitant on mentioning like Magic Knight Rayearth. But it got better in Season 2.
1998-2002 were the boom years. It began with the DVD and ended with bittorrent.
>There's also some that I was hesitant on mentioning like Magic Knight Rayearth. But it got better in Season 2.
I really have to give the series a rewatch. I remember my experience being opposite. Loved the hell out of season 1, but so many different factors in Season 2 made me put distance between myself and the canon.
And then the manga mercifully left every single issue I had with S2 out of its story.
>Remembah the 90s?
Where people thinks anime is something retard just only for kids and no one cares about it.
It was only unique because that's when Toonami/Adult Swim came out. And therefore, tons of people when never heard about anime suddenly learned about it. An entire group in western culture who would have otherwise mocked those 'Japanimation cartoons' suddenly jumped on the bandwagon and became Dragon Ball Z/Cowboy Bebop fans overnight. The problem was, they only cared for the shows on Adult Swim. And if you tried to tell them about any show beyond those, they literally would plug their ears and drown you out. They only cared about shows 'like Cowboy Bebop' and only watched what was on Adult Swim.
Fun Fact: 1998-2002 was exactly the years I was in high school. So I experienced these people first hand. And had to deal with them on a daily basis.
I don't miss how hard it was to find anime in the 90's. Discovering shows months or years after initial release. Going to a video store and finding a few random series with missing volumes. Hunting for VHS bootlegs in Chinatown and Japantown. Taping raws off of international channel broadcasts. Slow motion flame wars on rec.arts.anime.misc. Watching total crap just because it's anime and it's all you can find. Early 4chan got its attitude from a lot of this frustration.
So basically piracy ruined anime, huh?

Its like looking in a mirror.
>Early 4chan got its attitude from a lot of this frustration.
Yes, but despite that, it was still more civil than current /a/. And they talked about more things besides just what was currently airing or 'waifus'. This thread has basically been the most /a/ has talked about old anime in years.
I'm no good at technical stuff, but if I could help I will!
I never had trouble finding stuff. We had one non chain video store over by a local college campus. In the 90s the town I grew up in only had 30000 odd people but that campus fueled two things in that video store a.) Massive amounts of porn b.) Massive amounts of anime.
Shit was insane.
They never had any laserdisc stuff though, apparently college kids too poor.
If only the newer generations knew such thrills as happening upon a yardsale vendor with a table basket full of foreign VHS with terrible water marks and bad smell just to hope something anime related was hidden within.
Piracy forced the studios to pander more heavily to hardcore niche audiences. Digital animation allowed them to crank out the same basic stories every season with only slight product quality improvements. Instant internet feedback ensures that people get only what they want, and growth of the medium stagnates.
Rarely now is something innovative marketed successfully to a broad, non-otaku audience. It's not unique to anime; the same thing is happening in other forms of entertainment media (TV, movies, music, games, etc).
I am exited for this
>best friend since childhood drops out of college and starts up an anime & Card shop (mostly M:tg, not sports cards)
>4 years straight of unlimited access to anime on VHS
>Watched everything in the store, good or bad (ADV in particular released a lot of shit, but we welcomed it all)
>first dibs on each volume of hot series like Eva literally the day they were released
>Hentai was especially profitable ($4/night for regular anime. $6/night for the hentai tapes).
I watched about 95% of all commercially released anime in the 1990s because of this.
Any anime fan who went through this experience in the 90's is permanently authorized to torrent without guilt.
This is only partially true. Other mediums are still growing or finding new markets (like movies and music). Anime is having trouble because the Japanese market only focused on the Japanese consumer. Continuing to raise the price for domestic Japanese DVD/BD year by year to make up the losses until stuff like Mitsudomoe or Nichijou was literally selling for 100,000 Yen.
While they completely ignored the western audience, leaving that market for incompetent middle man companies like ADV, Viz, 4kids, Manga and etc. Of course, most of these companies just rushed to make short term profits and never cared for anime in the long term. And then they died once the internet became popular.
If the Japanese companies aren't careful, soon the Japanese consumers will realize that they are the only ones supporting their industry. And they can just download anime online for free as well. What's the point of paying $60-$150 a DVD when you can just get it for free online from a western fansubber? And anime companies can't really blame 'pirates' because they never established a strong market outside Japan, despite the huge demand.
That's how I feel about it. I spent hundreds of dollars buying VHS/DVDs and running around Chinatown/little Tokyo looking for anime merchandise.
But its more about how buying all that junk didn't really help the anime publishers. So until they actually set up publishing companies in the west, I'm gonna keep downloading anime. And not support companies like 4kids or Disney.
Nonsense. It was that anime always got in the black from the secondary market that drove marketing toward the obsessive buyers.
Piracy was already rampant by the tape era.
>mfw I sold most of my magic cards ages ago
>mfw my second gen black / white deck I held onto for nostalgia alone is worth 800 dollars now
Life is weird.
At this point is kinda safe to assume that you are "supporting" the anime/manga/we industry while buying localised stuff and even paying memberships from stream sites like CR but, it still doesn't feel right to me. In contrast, when I import manga or nendo merch it actually feels like I'm doing something good for the industry, even though it's pretty much the same process as to buy localised stuff, and besides if such Japanese manga import doesn't include furigana on the dialogue, I pretty much can't "read" it, so in a way, some people might think doing something like that is reallt silly.
To be honest it doesn't make sense to me either, so I don't really give a fuck.
>At this point is kinda safe to assume that you are "supporting" the anime/manga/we industry while buying localised stuff and even paying memberships from stream sites like CR
The problem is, you're not. Unless you buy stuff from companies like Geneon or Bandai, everything else comes from a middle man company that paid a flat rate distrobution fee for the anime. And any money they make past that flat rate goes into their pocket, not the original Japanese production company.
The main annoyance I have is if you're buying a western published DVD/BD, what you're really doing is supporting the production of dubs. You're basically paying for the western companies to license more shows to bring over, then dub them. And since I don't want subs, why should I keep supporting them?
Really, the only use for a middle man company like Manga, 4kids or whatever is dubbing. Take dubbing out ofthe equation and they don't even have a use anymore. Everyone would just get their anime online anyway. Heck, if dubs didn't exist, everyone would have gotten their stuff from fansubbers back in the 1980s.
Let's not paint them in a corner as bad guys, though. Remember that those flat rates are usually ridiculously inflated. Your pic is related: We will never see dubbed Sailor Stars because Toei wants super jew gold for the licensing.
Really, right now the formula is laughable. Import directly (what doesn't get caught up in customs or confiscated for international reasons), and you're paying a middleman anyway. At markup. Unless actual publishing houses deliver to non-domestic locations, you're going through a middle man no matter what. So go through them at horrible markup, or go through your local for less hit in YOUR pocket.
The rock and the hard place, anon. Financially-speaking, there will not be any good answer to anyone outside of Japan for some time to come if their intent is to help fuel their love of this hobby without going broke.
I honestly wouldn't mind paying more if the money went to the actual developers. And a few Japanese companies have actually tried establishing western publishing companies of their own (Geneon and Bandai). Initially they tried the tactics of super inflated prices just like they sold their products in Japan. But they got an extreme dose of cold water, seeing that American consumers just wouldn't pay more than $30-40 for a DVD. So if the other Japanese companies tried to come over, I'm pretty sure they'd have to play ball. The difference is, if they expanded their market much larger, selling their product to America and Europe as well as Japan, they may not have to sell their DVDs for $100+ dollars each. Because they wouldn't be selling only 50,000 copies of a show like in Japan alone. They might see their show reach 250,000, 500,000, even 1-2 million copies sold with the increased markets. The more a product sells, the lower the cost can go down.
This is of course just a theory. And it would be 100x harder to establish a market now that anime piracy online is as easy as going on youtube. They basically wasted the last 40 years when they should have been establishing that market, much like the Japanese gaming industry did.
>The problem is, you're not.
That would be partially true, and I would agree with that like 3 or 4 years ago, but it's been awhile and the moment CR started to get more subscriptions than ever, even some people in Japan started to encourage people in here to get subscriptions on legit sites or obviously, to purchase the localised copies of your favourite series, I mean, even TVTokyo owns a bit of CR now.
>Unless you buy stuff from companies like Geneon or Bandai, everything else comes from a middle man company that paid a flat rate distrobution fee for the anime.
It's the same thing as saying "support the original author by buying..." you are first supporting the company, but I get what you are trying to say, besides, they would still get a profit on that, but you would easily support them way better by buying the original product, that's a fact.
>And any money they make past that flat rate goes into their pocket, not the original Japanese production company.
That's why they license the work first, it's when the Japanese company gets the money from it, the supposed mission of a western audience would be buying the licensed media so they cap through the money the western company paid.
>And since I don't want subs, why should I keep supporting them?
That is just your opinion, and even though I agree, it's not like subs are not the standard on recent western anime releases, pretty much because making a dub costs more money.
About the last paragraph (excluding the what-if and not exactly that related) there are people who are just anti-pirate and others who just don't care and buy whatever they want, but it would be kinda difficult for me to assume that pirates are still the majority now.
pirates-only * as in anime watchers.
And THAT'S why their Western publishing divisions are dead.
Also, does Aniplex count as one? Or am I trippin?
Still my favorite 2-episode OVA.
>I'll never see the ending

The manga was so damn funny. Shame it got such little interest.
>And since I don't want subs, why should I keep supporting them?
>That is just your opinion, and even though I agree, it's not like subs are not the standard on recent western anime releases, pretty much because making a dub costs more money.
I actually meant to say ' And since I don't want dubs, why should I support them?' I typoed and said 'subs'.
My point was that the only real use of a middle man company is to be a middle man for making dubs. Take away the dubbing process, and many of them aren't even dubbing the anime anymore, and they basically have no purpose of existing. People will just go online and get the show for free.
What you're talking about is the direct result of a broken formula. The Elevens are willing to fork over vast amounts of cash for product. It's not actually healthy—we've seen this time and again in other area of services/goods markets imploding on themselves (comic industry for one, atari for another, the current gaming market as a third example). It sustained initially because these producers lucked upon a goldmine when the rest of their domestic video market was downsizing.
But that can't always be. Eventually, they're going to see that cash pendulum swing the other way, with the sharp end jutted out.
Though for us in particular, of course they (Bandai, Pioneer) realized the formula that feeds them in Japan won't work elsewhere. Again, the anime/manga/collector's market is a strange and unique creature that thrived despite all logic and sense. They expected the same in foreign markets, and didn't meet expectations. That dissonance is always going to exist, because unlike Japan, non-domestic consumers are not going to pay high price for product. They've got other concerns, and, being honest, cheaper avenues to acquire what they want. You are among a few exceptions to that particular case.
In any case, they won't suddenly drop the price because of mass-sales. Again, niche market. Tokyopop ended up paying a mint for the Love Hina license, and lucked out with their profits.
>tfw Slayer was my First anime
>tfw Lina is my first and only Waifu
>It sustained initially because these producers lucked upon a previously untapped goldmine
fix'd for clarity
I know about the strange habits when it comes to Japan. I laid the same thing out up above at >>100767190
But its because they don't have a large market to sell to that the whole thing is like this. Unlikewhat you're vlaiming, I think they would lower the price of their products if they had a larger consumer base buying them. If they weren't selling to such a niche market that only bought 10,000-250,000 copies of a show, they could lower the price of their DVDs. People like KyoAni have even said the reason certain DVDs like Nichijou cost so much (nearly 100,000 Yen total) is because they know so few people were going to buy them. Then a show like Haruhi cost significantly less (around 25,000 yen total) because they were massively popular and expected to sell a ton.
Are these prices resonable to western standards? Not really. But they're still following basic economics. And ifthey added an even larger market (America, Europe, international markets), they might make a show go from selling 100,000 copies to 1 million copies. And that could make it go from selling for $80 a DVD to $30 a dvd.
You'll never be this 90's
This is wrong. That's not how licensing works and companies do pay royalties based on percent earned to licensors. Often time licensing contracts are not disclosed but there is no reason to assume that anime companies do not also do what is industry standard. Just look at that lawsuit by TV Tokyo against 4kids for unpaid royalties. Unless you can provide me a source that says anime licensors only get a flat rate and no percentage of royalties I'm going to assume you're talking out of your ass.
Its a simply rpg. Has cuti-in a la SRW. Its s short, i cleared wihit 28 hours with maxede level (100). Runs great in emulator.
There is a full translation script but no scanslation using it, AFAIK.
I feel like I'm the only one who liked and/or remembers this show. Hardly ever see anyone talk about it.
But weren't the initial episodes of Blue Seed an OAV that was subsequently adapted to television?
I find it ironic how Bandai USA died. They didn't die because of them not doing well, they actually were selling their products just fine.
But apparently, Bandai Japan wasn't satisfied enough (I think they were still butthut over American audiences not buying up Gundam 0079) and shut it down on their own. Idiots.

>It's just not the same.
Well, yes, obviously it's not the same. You lost a lot of capacity to be surprised and amazed. You really need to watch those oldies with new eyes without trying to feel the same you felt the first time you watched it.
I watched this with my dad as a kid and want to rewatch it out of nostalgia, but it's like 300 episodes. Should I just read the manga instead?
I want to watch it too.
When it was in TV I had stopped watching anime for quite a long period and maybe I missed out. But 300 episodes is such a huge number and I don't know how good the animation is.
That's a great thing about manga, it doesn't get old like animation.
How many gallons of white paint do you think they used on the cels for this show?
semen, anon, semen
It only needed 2 parts really
100000 yen = about 1000 dollars a dvd set
25000 yen = about 250 dollars a dvd set
I watched that when I was little. It seemed too girly for me back then, but I can see all the Mahou Shoujo mocking now, it's fantastic.
There is a complete scanlation, and it's been around for years. Ahojed finished it in 08.
Goddamnit I've trying to remember the name of that shit forever
I was born in 93 but considering how old things get localized here later i watched shit like >>100746098 or >>100752350 some of these
Why are some people so hard for shading? I find 80's-90's shading too excessive, and rather un-stylish more often than done right. Comparatively, right now in the 10's, shows seem to have rather diverse and defined visual profiles.
There has never been, nor probably ever will be, a year as based as pic related.
If only I had been a few years older, I'd have been able to enjoy it with /a/. At least I had Toonami and Adult Swim *before* they sucked. I miss the old school Midnight Runs where shit got aired uncensored.
A final treat for all my oldfag brethren. If this doesn't bring a smile to your face, you have no soul.

It can't happen. Japan is the only country that sticks to traditional things despite being at the front line of technology. Otaku tears would drown the earth. What I can see though is anime being made entirely in computer programs similar to Flash or ToonBoom once they stop looking like shit.

It really amazes me that Jerkcity is still going. It's like the last bastion of that era of the Internet.
I was born 92, so I remember some things from the 90's, but I didn't really get into anime/manga until the 2000's.
Unless you count Sailor Moon and Pokémon (dubbed), the first anime that I actually sought out was the Hellsing anime. It appealed to my young, edgy self, who had grown up on videogames such as Diablo, Doom, Starcraft, and all that nice stuff.
do you remember all the nekos on starcraft?
Never played online.
I was a little kid and I was fucking awful at videogames, I usually played with cheats.
I'm not as big of a scrub anymore (thought I'll happily use exploits if I find them).
Everything was better in the 90s....
Except internet speed.
I can't jerk to that, it makes me too sad.
Except guns, home video technology, internet, phones, etc.
Pretty cool era, with a lot of stuff we should definitively treasure and remember, but don't fool yourself, it had as many flaws as the other decades.

If fucking Kotono Mitsuishi can't find work, then no one has a chance. :(
Her most recent voice work is Boa in One Piece. Sigh.
One of Key's 30,000 friends here.
I never won one of those Pizza Shock hats from Viz back when it was being released for VHS :_:
There has yet to be an OP/ED that still moves me like Key's. The OST is hauntingly beautiful.
I'm sad though, studio Pierrot/Pony Canyon pulled the official site. It only exists on the Way back machine now.
>Everything was better in the 90s....
The 90's didn't have the best video game of all fucking time.
Deus Ex came out in June of 2000. It's close enough.
Let's not start this on /a/, though.
You were saying something?
>Everyone Running in the 90's
>No one "Livin in the 90's".
Come now, /a/.
Hand drawn on computers just like everything else. I think the poster meant with paints on plastic sheets. The brand they used to use isn't even made anymore.
>The brand they used to use isn't even made anymore.
You just ruined my day. Thanks a lot, buddy.

My dreams of one day being a multi millionaire, becoming an anime philanthropist, and throwing money at a Japanese animation team to do an entire show in the old style cel animation with my own hand picked Japanese VA's from my childhood and not giving a fuck if it sells, just let them go all out with it.....
Hopes = Shattered.
I don't see why animating on cels is so special. You can do everything with digital. Even replicate the artifacts in the cels or things like hair on the camera lenses.
There's a certain depth and richness to the color and lighting you just can't get with digital.
Why can you not get it with digital? What can you not do with computers?
Worst thing is... you absolutely can.
Yes you can, you faglord! It's about how much effort you're willing to put in.
Digital often ends up looking like something drawn in MS Paint.
Really rich and deep reds and oranges.
What it often looks like has no bearing on the limitations of digital. You can do anything with it.
I dropped Slayers 2 episodes in
I watched all of cowboy bebop and didn't really enjoy it
I watched all of outlaw star and didn't really enjoy it either, best part was the opening
I feel like I can't watch Slayers until I've seen the kind of shows it's parodying.
