What's the oldest show you've watched?
Birth of a Nation
Something that aired yesterday.
Kill la Kill
The 1967 Lupin III.
And I am not sure should I laugh or cry when I watch it.
Stumbled on it while watching TV a while ago.
No Zaku boy, no Zaku.
LoGH or Lupin
The Twilight Zone
Dokonjo Gaeru and Candy Candy when I was a kid.
Yamato. I'll do Cutie Honey if a BD comes out or something.
I don't know. Mazinger maybe.
Galaxy Express 999, but only the first few episodes.
Those niggas dressed kawai as shit.
Fist of the North Star
Thoroughly enjoyed all three. I don't get people avoiding the best series just because "the animation is dated."
Heidi is the oldest one i have watched completely.
Ashita no Joe
It's a movie, but this. 1973, bitch.
The oldest TV show I've watched is either Space Adventure Cobra or original Macross, whichever one of those came out first. The oldest show I've finished is Oniisama e...
Is that shit even translated?
just saw Panda and the Magic Serpant, from 1958. it was shit.
on the other hand, Momotaro's Sea Eagles is from 1943, and it's definitely worth a watch.
Oldest I finished is EVA
Oldest I watched is the original Dragon Ball
I have watched that on TV when i was little. German dub. I'd be surprised if there are not any subs for this show.
awww shit heres my nigga
Star Blazers? The Wonder three? Outlanders? Does Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors count? It's so hard to put years on some of these.
I can't believe I watched a season of Science Ninja Team Gatchaman
I watched the original Speed Racer with my dad.
Only reason I forced myself through it all was because he said it was his favorite cartoon as a child.
I did that with my dad, too. Thankfully, he was also enough of a sci-fi turbonerd to also enjoy GitS and enjoy it.
Chargeman Ken's the oldest I've watched.
this is the oldest one i remember finishing , maybe doctor slump
But i've seen bits and pieces of the orginal astro boy and gigantor
Hadashi no Gen
same for me.
Yup, Astro Boy was my oldest, too. Honestly surprised more people aren't saying this.
This for me too.
It was crap.
For show it'll soon be Ashita no Joe.
If not animu, Mickey Mouse.
It was only last year that I found that this was an anime, also my oldest show seen
Are you me? 1967 Lupin was bizarre, I don't get how that was ever allowed or how anything ever came after it.
Out of all the old stuff I've seen, Votoms is the thing that feels most dated. And it's newer than stuff like Gundam or Macross which somehow aged much better.
When you watch them it's obvious that MSG came out before Votoms. It seems like way more than three years, actually. It's just that First Gundam is good and Votoms isn't.
It was absolutely fantastic.
There were some parts of Votoms that I really liked, but it was just too long. it could have easily been condensed to a 3 or even 2 cour show, and it would have worked a lot better.
i thought that was a movie
a racist movie
>it was just too long
That was one issue. I also felt the plot was ridiculously inconsistent, but at the same time seemed unable to shed characters who really outstayed their welcome.
Then there's Chirico - who should be fine as a character - but with the lack of exposition is frustratingly uninteresting. He's kind of like the average Steven Seagal character.
i used to watch time bokan when i was a kid,right now the only thing i remember bout that show is the time machine
Sally the Witch
It had maybe one cour of content. Half of every episode is just the characters silently walking through repetitive, boring backgrounds or having the same mecha fight over and over again, and most of the rest is either droning on about vague political conflicts that have no depth to them or one of the one-note side characters saying the only thing they ever say. The entire show has maybe two or three good episodes
Lupin the 3rd
It's really good. Far better then the most shows in the last few years.
>The entire show has maybe two or three good episodes
I think there are more than that. The last arc actually had me interested throughout, and there were good episodes scattered throughout the rest of the show. Much of it was just wasted time though.
Ume no Triton.
Its also the first anime I ever saw. I still remember that the name of the last episode is "The Sun is born again" Dad immediately saw the confusion on my face and explained that its a metaphor for the sunrise.
Heidi, then Lupin and Captain Future.
Captain Harlock would be my answer. That anime was fucking awesome.
That short anime clip created by Gainax.
Lupan Lupan Lupan Lupan
Lupan San Sei~ Lupan San Sei~
Based on this chart, its Kimba
If the oldest thing you've seen is not from AT LEAST 1968 you are a casual
I watched 9 of those movies. Interesting but definitely not for everyone.
I have actually seen The Genie Family on TV. That even beats Heidi for me then. I had no idea it was that old.
I've seen astro boy on tv and I had a VCR of speed racer. Speed racer was miles better than astro boy.
FIrst I thought It was speed racer, but looks like Kimba for me too
The Original Transformers TV series?
1957 Koneko no Rakugaki
Does non animated count? if so, doctor who
Is Doraemon still a thing in Japan?
Because that's both my first anime and my first manga.
Yeah. It just keeps going and going.
It's the third series, actually (26 eps in 1973, fucking 1787 eps from 1979 to 2005, and the current one from 2005 until now).
Such is the magic of the japanese Mickey.
So I guess Heidi is nothing to brag about.
Soon I'll tackle Gegege no Kitaro but it's the final boss of my backlog with more than 600 episodes.
The original Tetsujin/Gigantor
you mean anime? kimba
Ace wo Nerae (1973). Oldest movie I've seen is probably Animal Treasure Island from 1971.
