Ah this might be something I'll get into.
I find some of the 80s TV anime have really aged badly, so it becomes a drag to get through all 52 episodes (for example)

Isaac Taylor

Dangaioh has the opposite problem of never actually being finished, it ends on a massive cliffhanger with nothing actually resolved.

Nolan Brown
Nolan Brown

Oh man that's fucked.
As far as my knowledge goes a lot of these 80s OVAs have this problem, right?

So I just checked and it's an original work so no manga what soever?

As far as my knowledge goes a lot of these 80s OVAs have this problem, right?
Not really. Dangaioh was a unique case, they got the budget for more episodes but decided to blow it all on three instead and pray it did good enough to keep going. Obviously it didn't. Those three episodes are pretty solid though, and really fucking pretty.

Tyler Hernandez

They drew it in black and white and used color film. Which is not only more expensive than just filming in black in white, it's also way fucking harder to straight up draw in black and white. Especially when the main robot is almost all black. And in space.

It was just Anno being an artsy fuck and wanting to show off.

Cameron Hughes
Cameron Hughes

80s TV anime have really aged badly

Yeah, it's a shame a lot of nostalgiafags who go on about "muh shading" and "muh animation" seem to forget a lot of that was reserved for high budget ovas.

So... Talking budget...
Why was it that the last episode of Gunbuster was in black and white until the very very end?

Hunter Rodriguez
Hunter Rodriguez

Anno claim it was becouse of artistic reasons, knowing Anno it could be both for art or budget problems

Luis Campbell
Luis Campbell

All the still panning shots in the last fight with the space monsters were probably legitimately time/money problems, but the whole episode being black and white was just Gainax jerking themselves off.

Brandon Perry
Brandon Perry

Yeah that's what I've mainly watched but then again not all of those OVAs were great as well.
Like come on, look at Violence Jack just for an example.

I was busy reading the manga (which is hard to even find completely translated) and here I am thinking to myself "Why have they even tried making an adaption to such a manga?"

I see what they were going for, but still you are introduced to this big as villain of villains Slum King and by the end of the 3rd OVA there's not even a confrontation between Jack and the Slum King

Needs more Condition Green. Anime theme songs in the 80's were just so much more memorable and catchy to me. Nowadays all the "best openings" are usually just some forgettable thing with some shrieky singers that might as well be indistinguishable from one another.

Also, it was released on BD recently and looks much better than the old LD rips.

Because Galvion IS the most 80s OP

-Sick beats
-Synthesizers
-Cool 80s dudes
-Hot 80s babes
-Mecha
-Mecha that transform into lights
-A snazzy singing voice with lots of random Engrish in it.
-Animation quality that is probably a lot better than the actual show
-Sound effects in the OP

Arguably, only thing it was missing was a mysterious bad guy covered in shadow

Has it ever been subbed?
Last thing I know is that msubs has done the first episode.

I'm downloading now though it's some stupid italian/jap dual audio release where the italian dub is ripped from an old VHS.

Well if it's got jap audio that's good enough for me. How'd Episode 3 end up looking? They mentioned they lost the original film for it.

Austin Nguyen

It's alright but it's not as good as God Bless

Jackson Lopez

I'm planning on using this release for the subs, should work. I have no idea what is up with episode 3 since I have not even seen it before. But from what I can see now is that the episode 3 does look more blurry(?) compared to episode 1.

I like this one. The video is in rhythm with the music, making the music feel actually relevant beyond the lyrics. I need to see more OPs that are well choreographed to the music.

Jaxson Evans

Yeah, I've already got those downloaded. It's a shame about Episode 3, since the last fight with Gil Berg looked fucking great even on the BDs. Ah well, BD rips of an upscale are still better than shitty LD rips.

So a lot of anime was put on LD? Or mostly OVA only?

Dylan Butler

LDs never caught on outside of Japan but they were big for a while there. A lot of shows in the 80s got LD/VHS releases, until DVDs came around.

Zachary Reyes

Oh well, at least it wasn't completely lost. I don't even want to think about all the old anime that will never get an actual film transfer.

Since we're on this subject I've been trying to identify what song this MIDI is based on, because it comes from various anime MIDI sites, and it sounds pretty 80s.

Anyone have an idea?
