The majority of worthwhile anime is pre-2000. Whether or not you realize this depends on how many shows you've watched and for how long you've been watching, i.e. one's taste, or lack of it.

I don't understand the immense reverence people have for 90s anime. I've watched Evangelion, Escaflowne, Sailor Moon and several other well-regarded 90s anime and all of them left me cold. Granted, I was born in 1997 so I wasn't watching anime when it first permeated the Western mainstream.

I think people just have rose-tinted glasses for that era because it reminds them of their adolescence.

80's anime is ultra comfy.
Some shows like Fist of The North Star really hit it out of the park when it comes to the soundtrack.
Speaking of soundtracks, the Berserk anime really left an impression on me by barely having any music. It felt refreshing to not have audio cues telling me what I'm supposed to feel from a scene.

Now the 00's were the true dark ages of anime, good riddance.

The best anime director ever I feel is Osamu Dezaki (Rose of Versailles, Takarajima, Ashita no Joe etc) and his prime was between 1970 and 1980, I feel you are doing yourself a disservice by only watching modern stuff.

Yes. Even in his most girly of shoujo, Dezaki's directorial hand has always been very strong and masculine.
Great, director with a great, distinct visual style.
Which is about 90% of the industry.
And there's Ikuhara, who basically made Utena as Rose of Versailles with even more gay.

I feel like girls were cuter back then too

I just love the way old anime looks. There is a lot more detail and the fine lines stand out so much.

But my only gripe is the writing, some stories no matter how nice the animation, seemed to be all over the place

Jaxson Mitchell

Caleb Perez
Caleb Perez

I totally agree about the art-style, and the story bit to a moderate extent (but that's hardly as important when you consider that a lot of ideas were being thrown around back then).

I mean holy crap things just looked so much more detailed in a lot of the better shows. Frames had more things in them and are on their own much more interesting to look at than in a lot of popular modern shows. I don't know why this was but if I had to wager it was the lack of digital templates perhaps.

Regardless modern character models also by by and large seem a bit copy-pasted. I just loved Sadamoto's character designs and the outfits of a lot of characters in popular pre-2000 shows just seemed more life-like and fleshed out.

Gabriel Perez
Gabriel Perez

I fucking hate those.

Jaxon Nguyen

But my only gripe is the writing, some stories no matter how nice the animation, seemed to be all over the place
This seemed to happen a lot when animators, who were part of the first generation to grow up as otaku going to work in anime, got to sit in the director's chair.
They made a lot of OVAs that had great style, slick animation and were a lot of fun to watch.
They just had pretty shitty or generic at best stories because the animators knew animation, not story structure.

its enjoyabnle cause its the single worst anime ive watched, never have i seen a show just go full throttle on the retard button and keep getting more and more batshit insane as it went on.

It's pretty average and one of those adaptions where you look to the manga for the full package. The humour is a hit and miss and some parts were boring (it is an SoL, and an old one at that).
The last two episodes go full romance and depending on your mood you may or may not enjoy it. Personally I was in the mood that time so I enjoyed it even though it's not the most well-written piece in the world. It also has a qt delinquent girl and I think she made it worth it in the end.

I don't know how the manga compares to the anime so that's something I have yet to check out.

Joshua Carter
Joshua Carter

I just like the look of older anime a lot more. It's a lot easier on the eyes without super bright colors.

It's the same thing that happened to cartoons, now that I think about it. Both old cartoons and anime had a kinda saturated look to them.

I love the small details in old non-CG animation.
Only the recent Gundam series make an attempt to replicate the good stuff.

Adam Williams
Adam Williams

Old anime had better stills, newer ones have better animation flow after everything went digital.

Old anime had cuter girls, newer ones have better lewd.

Old anime had battles and generic mecha, newer ones have more waifus and generic harems.

Old anime had better plot premises, newer ones have better developments. Well they mostly traded nonsensical development with self-aware meta developments.

Old anime had better shadows, newer ones have better line work.

David Johnson
David Johnson

Also, I just looked up the director.
It seems this OVA was also directed by the same person who worked on Orange Road, Maison Ikkoku, Umi ga Kikoeru, and YKK (2nd OVA) No wonder there was something special about the last scene.

Caleb Wilson

So basically old anime is better in every way?

Miyazaki is right, otakus did ruin the industry.

Gavin Anderson

I think you're pretty wrong, like six months ago I watched SDF macross and it blew me away that an anime from fucking '82 could have a story like that, and I'm currently watching Turn A gundam and it's fantastic. Everyone likes different things, just because you can't live without digi-paint anime doesn't mean you should impose those views on other people.

I was born in 97 too, and apart from Penguindrum, Madoka, and that lesbian bear show, i'm pretty much all about 90's-early 2000's anime.
I feel like anime nowadays just move so fast, there's barely enough time to just sink in and enjoy everything.
Stuff has to be 12 episodes nowadays and I feel less emotionally connected to shows because of this.

John Wright

Yes, Photon: Idiot Adventures was fucking hilarious.

Oliver Jenkins

This is basically the fatal flaw of a lot of OVAs. You put someone like Obari in charge whose only priority is cool-looking bullshit, and you get a fucking mess with good animation.

because the animators knew animation, not story structure
See FMAB and how somehow who has no understanding of storytelling fucks up something solid.

Julian Bennett

I'd say there are more gems with pre 2000 shows than with newer stuff but obviously also a lot of bad stuff.
Venus Wars for instance was pretty bad and same with Arion.

Samuel Murphy

That "best 1999 anime" thread blew my mind when I saw the list.

Andrew Lee

For Yas' stuff, you really have to read the manga instead. Arion was mediocre even in the manga though.

Justin Thompson
Justin Thompson

Yeah. My favorite is late 90s early 00s. At that time you had just the right mix of fantasy and reality. Early 90's and pre 90's was all pretty much high fantasy and hard Sci-fi, and late 00's and beyond is so focussed on daily life and relationships. Also cyberpunk was fucking great. Too bad we can't have it anymore since we're already living in a dystopian future.

Evan Bailey

struggle to find decent video file types of pre2000 anime that aren't in a archaic format
it's all sub 480p with subs no one has touched since the 90s or worse, it's dubbed
i-it's part of the charm! muh nostalgia
there were just as many shit anime as there are now - per the amount of available anime
it was even harder to find anime in the 90s that wasn't extraordinarily popular - which is objectively by /a/'s standard all considered shit
Please keep your shit taste contained in the designated pre2000 anime thread/3x3 thread. Thanks!

Hey, characters and plot was somewhere between good and bearable, at least up until they start heading to Quent in the TV series.

A bunch of memorable characters were still introduced in the OVAs, but were either forgotten or killed off in some of the most uninteresting ways possible.

They should have just done a spin-off using pic-related.

I was born in 1997. I enjoy lots of stuff made between 1981 and 1999, but I don't really feel excited or emotionally attatched to anime made before 1995. There's just no hype, no feels, nothing. Anime voice acting used to be mediocre back in the '70s and '80s.
Sure, I love the way cel animation and high-budget, high quality '80s anime OVAs/movies look, but I don't really care for their plots, their characters, or anything. By the way, anime girls were ugly as fuck back then.
