10 year range vs 5 year range

Did you do that because you realize 2005-15 is quite competitive with the 90s, and that half of the 90s year had very little of note? For example 1995-00 vs 2010-15 might be something to ask.

Did you not realize far more anime have come out in the last 5 years than the 90s altogether?

And by the time the decade ends, way more and better anime will have come out than all of the 90s.

A year is a year. Especially if you hold to the notion that 90s were way more about quality over quantity. Which wasn't even true really. People just think about Bebop/Utena/Eva/Lain as the 90s (CCS, DBZ and Sailor Moon too and there we go, practically everything), and forget that there is little else of note that decade that doesn't sound a lot like an anime that could come out today.

For example this is literally everything on TV in '94 - you got Rayearth, Chacha and the worst Macross ever. Almost nothing else watchable at all for people who are not 8 year old Japanese kids. WHOAA BEST DECADE EVER DUUDES. I'll admit a fuckton of OVAs and movies also came out in '94 and OVAs were still very much alive as a separate format. But just about all of those fucking sucked too despite being the tryhard format for "hardcore" fans.

'10-'15 isn't a slouch either to compare with.

There are like 30+ entries you could list if you want all decent/semi-decent 90s shows/movies/OVAs. For one I'm not gonna type everything out because I'm not looking to spoonfeed, two many of the supposed classics are not actually that great; I simply boiled things down to what everyone starts to rattle off when you ask why exactly the 90s were better. If you want to nitpick DBZ started in '89 even though none of us heard of it back then, go ahead and lump it as 80s since you'll also be outing Ranma 1/2 along with it.

Don't nostalgia bomb me saying stuff like Tenchi and Slayers are godly timeless classics way way better than anything we could get today. They're not that fucking good. Deal with it.

this idiot is unironically arguing why 2010-2015 is better than the 90s while claiming entry level anime like bebop and evangelion are the pinnacle of the 90s
What a dumbshit.

Nathan Phillips

Yes and no. There's was a lot of good but there was far more bad. The thing is, bad shows tend to fall under the radar or didn't get licensed so you had no idea they existed till now, but for people like me, back then you watched whatever you could get your hands on, regardless of quality.

Easton Stewart
Easton Stewart

has literally nothing else to back him up on why the 90s were so great besides discrediting literally 90% of why people think the 90s were great

Go on, pull up Outlaw Star or Big O or something else I could fucking rip to shreds in 5 seconds. Pull up some of those fucking terrible 1-2 episode OVAs citing the hyper budget animation and nothing else noteworthy. Pull up Gundam Wing or X or Victory, seriously, just fucking try to slide past me that I should remotely accept those fucking failures over Zeta or even ZZ. You got very fucking little left if you're discounting Utena and Eva thinking the 90s stand up fine without them.

I really like 90's anime because traditionally done/hand-drawn 2D animation has always looked fucking awesome in my opinion. That's not to say digital doesn't have it's moments, but I rewatched Gasaraki the other day for the first time in years and the animation quality is unlike most anime I've seen in the past decade. It looks so fluid in a lot of places and the attention to detail is stunning

I respect your opinion, but I think 90s have the best look of anything in my opinion. On top of everything still be cel animated the characters look a lot less disney-ish than they did in the old days. I'd still say 90s is pretty much goat for anime. Very early 2000s were fine too, but I feel like by the time it was 2006 the new shit that I just don't like was becoming the standard.
If anyone could recommend something that's really new that's good I would be willing to try to change my mind about it again.

No. Azumanga Daioh saved anime in 2002 by introducing the Cute Girls Doing Cute Things genre, a genre which has greatly raised the overall quality and enjoyment of anime.
