Is it just me and nostalgia glasses, or does anime seem to suck a lot more now than it used to?
in b4 poopstorm.
It depends, really.
70's and 80's animu = FUCKING AWESOME
90's animu = UTTER SHIT
They don't make 'em like that anymore.
I didn't watch anime 10 years ago because I didn't want to be a otaku loser. Sadly people thought that regardless and I missed out on some good 90's animu.
Actually, odds are that you were never exposed to the worst of older anime, whereas now you have access to the good and the bad.
Overall I think anime has hit a saturation point and the industry has become so big that studios churn out shit just for the sake of keeping the industry inflated. There are still good shows here and there, but still they seem to lack something.
00's = 70's > 90's > 80's
I expect knee-jerk reactions from the lesser minds. Do not disappoint! Amuse me!
"However, over the past 12 years, there has been no anime newer than Eva."
From fucking Anno himself.
Yeah considering since it's release you've released a fuckiNg Eva tie in EVERY GODDAMN YEAR YOU FUCKING FAGGOT!! DIE ANNO DIE!!
80s had the best shounen.
why did you delete it?
>Is it just me
No, bitching is contagious.
>Is it nostalgia glasses
Almost every time. Plus trolling and faggotry.
NOT TODAY FAGGOT.
Not true. Most of the best shows ever are from 2005-2007 ones.
But that really depends on the one who's watching.
the only good anime to come out post 1990 is pretty much kaiji and akagi. Even anime based on fuck-win manga tend to suck like Eyeshield 21.
No, it's got to be the '60s.
togashi wishes he was half as awesome as yudetamago.
$500 Rayban Nostalgia glasses.
No. Just too many animation studios coming in to the business. And to add to that, lesser production costs and overused story adds up to the problem.
All incarnations of tenchi were complete dogshit, so I'd say it's not nostalgia, it's just rampant idiocy and poor taste.
It happens a lot around these parts. So much so that you're bound to find a group of people who share your shitty opinion. Don't worry about it!
>90's animu = UTTER SHIT
Stay the fuck off of /a/ until you watch Slayers, 08th MS Team, Golden Boy, Samurai X, Trigun, Mahoromatic, Berserk, and...oh hell you're just a troll, stay off /a/ anyway.
>>the only good anime to come out post 1990 is pretty much kaiji and akagi.
You best be joking nigger.
Yet Anno lifted stuff from an older animu to make Eva. But Anno likes to jerk off to himself anyway.
I remember when anime showed tits, sex and hardcore violence and didn't afraid of anything.
Now its all CENSOR, HAREM SHIT, CENSOR, MOE, CENSOR, CENSOR, SHONEN, CENSOR, CENSOR, CENSOR, SHONEN, CENSOR, MOE, MOE, HAREM SHIT, CENSOR, SHONEN, CENSOR, MOE, Oh look Shigurui, CENSOR, MOE, HAREM SHIT, etc.
You had me until Berserk.
>08th MS Team
Not worth watching. Read the manga.
>Oh look Shigurui
If you watch it before reading the manga it's pretty awesome.
First two seasons were awesome. Try was meh, and the movies are boring as shit.
>>08th MS Team
Good point, best Gundam installment.
It was entertaining, if it wasn't for the fanservice, many people would mostly forgotten about it by now.
Mediocre animu is mediocre.
Good, but it has a "LOL buy the mango" ending that's just plain annoying.
There's always been a lot shounen animu. Hell, the 70s animu was dominated with tokusatsu mecha shounen series.
this is pretty much my opinion too
it's like in exchange for good animation, anime companies had to start manufacturing shit
MY OPINION > YOUR OPINION
AND DON'T TELL ME OPINIONS AREN'T FUCKING ABSOLUTE BECAUSE I HAVE FUCKING GOOD TASTE I'M A GODDAMN ANIME CONNOISSEUR AND YOU ARE A WORTHLESS PHILISTINE WHO LIKES THINGS THAT I DON'T
>Good, but it has a "LOL buy the mango" ending that's just plain annoying.
More like a "we ran the fuck out of money" ending.
Samurai X was only good until the Shishio arc was over, after that, hell ensues.
Tenchi fills me with cursed nostalgia juice. Good times on Toonami...good times...
there hasn't been a decent harem show since tenchi. then again there weren't that many good harem shows to begin with.
Samurai X =/= Kenshin TV series
We talking about the OVAs.
>There aren't any good harem shows.
Nothing is to be blamed here. Anime today is starting to target a wider range of audience so studios can profit from them. Unfortunately, most of the anime demograph are just weeaboo faggots that only watched Naruto and thought it's the best thing ever created. Also, the MOE thing never really boomed until KyoAni fucking blinded us by putting CG effects to MOE shit. It's a whole lot more than this.
Tenchi really didn't age well and I realized how shitty it really is.
It doesn't help that it retcon itself every installment.
90's animu was pretty good.
And it had Cowboy Bebop.
Only good thing about it was the movie.
there's still the occasional good harem show nowadays
it's just that there's three million bad harem shows for every good one nowadays, while a few years back harem was just Tenchi and Love Hina
yeah, KyoAni popularized moe
now it's everywhere
Shounen pre-late 90s >>>> Shounen of today.
Give me Hokuto no ken over Rosario + Vampire/Bleach/Naruto any day
I think I'm the only one on /a/ who hates that anime
The more posts you make, the more I laugh. Especially all the posts that classify target audiences as a genres.
Continue! Amuse me!
i never liked tenchi
Yes. Because the 90s had Mahou Tsukai Tai.
Love Hina oh man that's when you know it's bad when people think love hina was good. look shit that doesn't stink is still shit
MTT was good, but it wasn't outstanding though.
God, you really give trifags a horrible name.
>>Tenchi and Love Hina
And El Hazard, Marmalade Boy (which had both harem and reverse harem in the TV series), Sakura Taisen, and some other I can't be bother with right now.
What didn't you like about it off the top of your head? I'm going to question you rather than assault you.
Two of the best anime from the 90's
Cowboy Bebop and Big O
90's did produece a shitstorm of shit.
Though 00's is doing the same.
I think 70, 80's were a bit different in that everything was either AMAZING, or total shit and never heard from again.
how old is GTO?
Its just not my kind of thing. I'm not bashing it or anything. I just found it booring.
If there's a ton of women in an anime they better sure as hell be like this.
10 1/2 years
Aight no worries. I'll respect that reasoning.
90's gave us DBZ man. FUCKING DRAGONBALL Z!
>> fuck dragonball Z
Yes. Because the 90s had Burn Up/W/Excess. I'm hot for Rio Kinezono.
Remember when girls in Shojo anime came close to GAR? Those where great times.
Unless there's plans for a new updated Yuri & Kei, it has to be the 80s/90s, because of the Dirty Pair.
...Didn't each decade of anime have their pluses and minuses?
I started watching about a year ago, I don't think I'm missing much, older stuff looks boring plus I don't have enough time for cartoons. Why am I here anyway, /b/ > /a/
anime: serious business
Really, what will all you fags be saying in another 10 years? 00 was so much better than 10's zomg haruhi....
>...Didn't each decade of anime have their pluses and minuses?
You must not be wearing your nostalgia glasses. Otherwise you would never have made such a blatantly true observation.
Back in the old days they would show tits on TV fucking japan!
+ GAR, and moe was almost non-existent
- animation and music sucked, for the most part
+ Very creative and imaginative sci-fi
+ Dirty Pair
- lol, we'll make character designs as wild as possible
+ Lots of fantasy animu
+ Cleaner styles
Really the only old stuff that is still around or is still memorable WAS good stuff. Have this argument when you are as immersed in 00's and (maybe) 90's as before then.
90's anime is like 90's music. It has more flavor and more freedom of expression than most of anime today.
-Mazinger clones all around
-Gundam clones all around
-Eva clones all around
>- poor fanservice. (much less than in 80/90s, usually just panties or impossibly huge tits covered by floss, usually saved for DVD release)
someone hasn't watched Rosario+Vampire or Nagasarete Airantou
00's = moe/tsundere shit
I've seen both. Rosario has OK fanservice, but I guarantee you you'll never see nipples. And if you do, it'll be a DVD release/special.
>>-Eva clones all around
I wouldn't say that, mecha was pretty much started to die in this time period, there was a lot more supernatural/fantasy animu in this time period more than anything.
Huh? Music of the 90s were mostly shit, it was the time period that give us Ace of Base, Spice Girls, and grunge.
And the OVAs in this era sucked shit. And there was a lot of copypasta animu series like the previous and next decade.
if anything, the copypasta anime were even less apologetic about it than they are now. Remember all the hordes of post-eva rip-off Rei's? There were a couple good ones, but plenty more in crappy shows that we forgot as soon as they were over.
Copypasta animes aren't apologetic even now, though. Rei isn't a good example, however, as we're probably going to be seeing Rei clones in anime until the end of the human race.
And after the end of the human race, one of the survivors will be a Rei clone.
Anime for children is still going strong
I think we are talking about anime for teenagers and adults
The good anime seem to start about 1985, peak in the late nineties and then slowly downhill from then.
I think it is a either caused by
2) cultural change
1) adult anime are pirated too much so they won't put money into producing them
2) Japanese have decided anime is for kids
Certainly if you tell a Japanese person you watch anime they think you are stupid.
>peak in the late nineties
Peaked in style, mind.
