Late night /a/
Who remembers this?
>>
Who remembers Silent Möbius?
Who remembers City Hunter?
Who remembers Bubblegum Crisis?

/a/ is not the place to talk about old anime, sorry. Now get out.
>>
>>102065260
>/a/ is not the place to talk about old anime
It could be, but usually the threads are shit.

People think that just by name-dropping something old, they'll get a good discussion going.
>Who remembers this?
Fuck off.

I'm sure all the idiots who post the bizarrely identical "Why doesn't /a/ talk about old anime?" threads.
>>
>>102065406
Announcing your report is a reportable offense.
>>
>>102065260

You better get the fuck out right now, shit-stain.

>>102065220
Was that the anime about the super playboy or something similar?
>>

>>102065375
>>102065361
>>102065260
OP here. I did not want this thread to turn into a tumblefuckery shit fest. I just simply wanted to talk about Iria.
>>
>>102065461
Nope. I think your thinking about Golden Boy.
>>
>>102065465
Then why don't you talk about it? Why try to summon a super secret club and exclude anybody who watched it in recent times?
>>
>>102065220
>>102065260
It seemed like Mardock Scramble was very consciously trying to evoke these old anime, along with Armitage III, Darkside Blue and the like. Didn't turn out very good, but a fun effort.
>>
Not about Iria Zeiram, but I re-watched Blue Submarine no. 6 recently after hearing about the Blue-Rays. It's kind of nice to have a change of pace once in a while. It really gave me that nostalgic old feeling.
>>
>>102065260
>City Hunter
I started watching this a few days ago. Loving it so far.

Actually this is the one about Mega-Playboy. Which means OP is something else.
>>
>>102065465
At this point I would be glad that the thread didn't die full of foreveralone bumping. /a/ for the most part is only concerned with what's airing right now.
>>
>>102065533
Because I love /a/, and I have no intentions on impeding on anyone's fun time, I just wanted to discuss Iria.
>>
>>102065220
It's in my backlog, still haven't find the motivation to watch it.
>>
Looks cool OP. Tell me about it. Maybe I'll add it to my exclusive invite only backlog.

Mang's better, though.
>>
>>102065623
I don't really mind that though. It just gets boring looking at the same threads over and over again sometimes. Not saying /a/ is supershit, just that its a nice change of pace sometimes.
>>
>>102065669
I think it was release in 1994 or 1995. About a strong willfull space hunter who don't need no man and a horrible shredder-tentacle monster. In all seriousness though its very good IMO. The animation is nice, the story original, and the atmosphere very befitting for an anime of its time. I rewatched it because i realized that there was a remastered version of it. Thinking about it now I think I still have the VHSs in my basement haha.

>>102065220
Looks sexy, but I was told it was boring.
>>
>>102066126
I wouldn't say its boring, its just paced a little differently. The action isn't amazing by today's standards, but its still good.
>>
>>102066209
Some of the first scenes in Iria has the old use of showing how invincible someone is by making the bullets just look and sound like they ricochet off of the character. Although people may not like it, I kind of find it refreshing.
>>
>>102065953
>tfw Iria is your first waifu
This.
>>
>>102066580
That scene where Kei grabs Iria's tits in the second or third episode. Man fuck Kei.
>>
Speaking of which, how about discussing the live-action Zeiram movies as well.

Or should that go to /m/?
>>
>>102066821
I've seen The Animation, but not the live actions. I would kindly talk about it if I could though.
>>
>>102065465
Yet you didn't post a single thought about it. You just plopped down a shit thread and expected us to construct a conversation for you.

Nope, not how it works. Fuck off.
>>
>>102067008
...Except conversation did happen and has been perfectly serviceable. You're free to go fuck yourself any time now.
>>
>>102067026
I'm not seeing them. All I see is "hurr burr who remembers oldcrap" nonsense.
>>
>>102067036
And "hurr durr A'hm a burr" shit posting is going to make it better? Wonderful though process, chucklefuck.

>>102067036
>>102067095

Its funny that a thread that isn't even related to Iria is having a discussion on it and we are not. >>102066429

How about we pick up from where they left off. Did you like or dislike Iria?
>>
>>102066640
I'm sure Iria did. She strikes me as a bulldyke.
>>
>>102067462
Is it bad that this makes me mad right now?
>>
Fuck off, we don't talk about old anime
>>
>>102067008
Just because OP made a shit thread doesn't mean other people can't make it into a decent thread. Stop shitting up threads with backseat modding.
>>
>>102067516
Is it wrong fellow /a/non?
>>
>>102067510
I'm just saying. She might make an exception for Gren though.

How delusional are you? You think we want that?

Silent Möbius has some nice character development, especially the relationship between Kiddy and Ralph.

The 3DCG is crap though, really cringeworthy.

I don't want to ruin /a/'s fun by discussing anime :(. Maybe I should report this thread.
>>
>>102065220

I vaguely remember renting it... back during the Clinton administration? Attractive female space bounty hunter vs unstoppable space monster, or something.

Is it even still obtainable now?
>>
>>102067882

How new are you? You must always report rec threads, retard

What are you working on and what are you reading now?

You want digital download?

You want overpriced DVD?

Or you want good old fashioned VHS? Well, here's the first part. Go scour Ebay if you want to find the rest. I can't be assed.

>>102067915
Renting VHSs was the shit. I would go down to the local Video/Movie store and excitedly look through the shelves for anything that caught my interest. I still have the VHS in my basement somewhere, but I downloaded the remastered version off of piratebay.
>>
>>102067869

All the characters are adults, no longer in school.

Same original character designer as Nadesico: Kia Asamiya.
>>
>>102068172
Nadesico was shit, too.
>>
>>102068191
Care to explain why? Discuss about it, I want to hear your opinions and get some discussion started rather than insult each other.
>>
>>102068239
Shit writing, shit story shit characters and fuck off retarded harem that desperately wanted to be Eva.
Fucking Akito was far worse than Shinji. At least Shinji had bad things happen to him and he'd get shat on by other characters. Akito would excel in combat, get nothing but praise and acceptance from other characters and still mope and cry and watch his fucking cartoons.
By the midway point, I'd rather have been watching Geki Gan Gar III than that crap.
Also, Ruri can suck of an exhaust pipe.
>>
>>102068319
Yeah, but all of those radiohead doujins though.....

Iria was pretty hot.

Blu-ray remaster when Japan?
>>
>>102065220
Iria and things like it way back when on Staturday Anime are what got me into anime. I don't know how well it holds up though.
>>
>>102065220
Iria was the first anime that made it realize it is anime.

>>102065220
My waifu has aged well through the years.
