you think you are special or something? kys
why do these recurring threads always trigger people?
I watch some. Finished Saber Marionette J not too long ago. It was okay, had some good parts, but ultimately it is just a harem with typical harem/filler/children's cartoons plots. The coolest thing was the character design, and it wasn't bad. It's probably on the level of an average seasonal filler anime, something everyone watches but whose highest quality is that it's new. Like AmaBuri or Korean Zombie.
Also saw Now and Then Here and There. It was a good anime, and the visuals stood out the most. So many great images. The music is also really good, and the plot is interesting. The worst part is the anti abortion message forced onto you.
Not currently putting any real effory into anything 90s, but occasionally see an episode of Turn A Gundam or Brain Powerd.
May pick up Initial D or that other popular, but never talked about sports anime from 1998, when I finish Ace wo Nerae if I still want more sports.
I watched Gokudo not too long ago. It was the most fun I had with an anime in a while. Purely low class 90's schlock. I loved it.
The 90s artstyle is the best.
Thought it would be great but it was shit dropped it after 2 eps
What's a 90's anime? No seriously I don't know what you're talking about. All I know is before and after 2000's.

I can't deny that all of this is true. But I also can't deny it's still one of my favorite series even after 20 years.
blatant request post
I see what's going on here.
Shhh, this thread is meme.
Princess Nine was the never talked about 1998 sports anime I was thinking about.
Is it good? (Could it be used to strengthen the argument for spring 98 being one of the best seasons ever?)
(Never mind, spring 98 isn't that strong.)
I guess I should say some more, then.
Please watch Rayearth. The opening song is one of the best
and worst, for the second season
It's a show I love
No more news about that new saber project
Because they tend to be too painful to watch, or worse than the shit we got here.
Think SMJ is waifufaggotry
Ends up making me cry like a little bitch
A lot of 90s stuff is generally a pain to find if it wasn't SM or DBZ tier popular.
Christ that looks off.
Is this what happens when someone attempts the 90s aesthetic with 2016 technology? Fucking hell, mess.
the tops of their heads look smashed
not watching superior 70s anime
it's just a series of panning still images
90's anime is very widely available.
Trying to find lesser known shows from the 80s and earlier is a real nightmare, especially in quality better than LD
Someone please rescue the Lady Lynn BDs
At least hentai got better, right?
which tenchis is it based off?
a bunch of new jurai-ans I don't give a fuck about and a new girl that's probably a fiance.
I don't know what I expected but this is what I didn't want.
he thinks I don't watch the best time period
Gunsmith Cats BDs when?
even more new characters to take away from the precious screen time Ryoko could be having instead
OVA 3 was a mistake and so is this. They should've just kept making lots of great one-off shows like they did with El-Hazard instead of milking it.
he prefers 90s over 80s
80s > 90s > 70s > 60s
Damn Macross is ugly
90's style is best
Magic Knight Rayearth S2 has some fantastic art.
A shame the other aspects of the show aren't as great.
I really liked the second season of Magic Knight Rayearth
Wow, I haven't finished it yet but the direction and story telling have been pretty flat and messy in my opinion. I feel the first season was better despite it's simplicity and pacing issues in the middle.
I still like S2 for various reasons though. Hikaru is adorable as always and Lantis is 2kakoi.
I wish we had Marionettes remastered.
Waiting for those glorious G Gundam BDs.
Looks like EG has 1-24 done now.
thinking SMJ is above being waifu faggotry just because it's great
Also, Cherry was my true OG waifu
you lived long enough to witness the final battle between Domon And Master Asia in BD quality
you lived long enough to witness Domon and Rain's Burger King attack in BD quality
I can't fucking wait.
Rayearth is my shit... except for that OVA.... seriously, wtf happened?
I still need to see that one. I don't like the new character designs, but I will see it.
It looks great for the first 3 episodes then it starts to tank until you get episodes 9-13 that are just terrible, the art never manages to recover
Not him but to be fair Belladonna was an experimental 70s film that used paintings to tell the story. You should have felt at least something during the rape scene.
90s was better, it has best girl in it.
I remember it was on TV a couple of times, but I never gave it a proper chance. Is it worth watching or is it SM-tier monster of the week with almost no plot where everything resets after an episode.
I saw the first episode of Kodocha, but my download had awful subtitles so need to find it somewhere else.
Or just stream.
Annoying when the subtitles are that bad.
The designs are more to CLAMP's designs, faggot.
But GA was 2000
I prefer the anime designs. The hair colours are wrong in the OVA to me.
This. I love Saber Marionette even if it's your typical harem. Although it was a bit more innocent than the stuff we have now. It helps that the genre wasn't as exploited back then so I wasn't as annoyed by the cliches.
Truly felt bad for Tigress. I was happy when she got fixed in the OVA. Even with that choppy animation.
I watched 90s anime in the 90s. Including seeing how J to X ruined Saber Marionette.
CLAMP hated how the anime changed the story from the manga. So they took more control over the OAV. And surprise, CLAMP sucks at telling a story.
I think MKR would make much better use of a modern reboot/sequel than stuff like Card Captor Sakura.
CCS is already a timeless anime and making a new one is a big risk but MKR have a story that could really improve with current methods. I would love to see the spells, landscapes and Rune Gods duking it out all in their glorious HD majesty. Also Hikari, Umi and Fuu will be interesting leads when shown to anew generation of fans. They're heroic, capable and powerful but the story don't feel the need of rubbing it in the audience's faces nor downgrade their flaws and vulnerabilities (heck, the main meat of S2 is Hikaru facing and accepting her shortcomings). If only they weren't so blinded by CCS's popularity.
Magic Knight Rayearth is the show that needs the modern retake treatment.
But its not true. Saber Marionette J is not childish. And has a pretty strong scifi sub plot. And does a lot of things people want in more modern harems. Especially every girl winning at the end.
CCS is so big that any sequel, no matter how good, is going to anger the fanbase. MKR was popular, but not to absolutely rabid levels. And the series has already been ruined by a bad OAV so a new remake isn't out of the question.
But instead of remaking all these popular shows, they should be remaking shows that actually need a remake to fix story and animation issues. Top of that list would be Lost Universe.
90s was better, it has best girl in it.
You're right, it did.
But a modern MKR would ruin the artstyle. The character designs are great, the colours, just the overall art. A remake wouldn't look anywhere close to as good as the original. The eyes would look creepy, the colours flat and sterile, and no charm to the linework. And the robots would be in horrible CG. And could they get the original voice actors? Probably not.
Lost Universe is not CLAMP. But you're right in that it would be nice to see it updated.
Back to CLAMP they could also try on stuff that never saw the light besides cameos or little videos like CLAMP School Detectives or its Sentai Spin Off. Or an RGVeda anime.
I can't find it in any quality, except Italian dub.
I'm a huge Slayers fan, but I couldn't stand Lost Universe. The plot was so subpar, it felt as if the majority of episodes could've been considered a filler. Also that overuse of shitty 3D didn't help either.
I know its not CLAMP. But I'm just pointing out 90s shows as a whole that need a remake. Rumors are stirring that 3x3 Eyes is getting a new project. Hopefully its a full show and not another OAV.
And could they get the original voice actors? Probably not.
I saw the Latin dub so I'm not as troubled by that.
Lucy, Anais y Marina, venceran....
Hence why it needs a remake. The story was actually quite good and the ending rivals Slayers NEXT. But there was a fire in the studio and they had to redo over half the show in a matter of weeks.
I watched 90s anime .. in 90s. I cant watch anything before 2000 atm (or nowadays even 2010) since the style, storytelling and visuals are just not appealing anymore as they once were: with exception of rare thing, but having actually lived and watched anime through last three decades: theres nothing i didnt watch that i`d want to watch now. No urge to rewatching old stuff either.
See no point telling younger people to watch all of it too, since old stuff is not automatically better and largely irrelevant today. I`d rather watch the worst show of currently airing season, than one from 80s or 90s.
Then again, watching season after season year after year i dont even have backlog, and all i want is NEW stuff, and woudnt even watch stuff i skipped season before since pretty much only interested in airing stuff for discussion purposes since it makes me feel like i am watching it not alone.
You have classic nostalgia. I used to be like you. It wasn't until I found Princess Tutu that I accepted a post 2000 anime could be as good as stuff in the 90s. And then eventually I watched so much that the majority of my favorite shows came out after 2000.
That'a the thing with many 90s series, the 90's had a lot of goofy shit and silliness in general but many series, including SMJ dealt with rather serious and deeper topics. I mean SMJ is basically about A.I, questions about what it means to be a human, what it means to be alive are the core of the story. If you can put up with the over the top-ness it remains as an alright series with decent entertainment.
Has some dope moments as well.
Even if the only reason you watch anime is to talk about it, there are still 90s anime worth watching. Evangelion still gets daily threads, and many other 90s anime also get threads from time to time. It's also useful to have something to compare new anime to when you talk about them. Your discussions get more shallow if you have no grasp of the classics.
mfw I only watched Magical Girl Pretty Sammy in its entirety because our local library had them.
Man, our library had a good amount of anime back then. Good stuff.
I'm glad I get to talk about anime and manga with you and others.
I want to get into 90's anime, but I get bored watching them.
Sorry they have character development and more than 12 episodes.
Tenchi's VA sounds like some variety show narrator
How would a good story suddenly become bad after 20+ years?
Has some dope moments as well
Saber Marionette was a modest series but I always loved how they switched from goofy comedy to hearth stringing tension with flowing ease.
Pic related had me at the edge of my seat back in the day. It gave me a nostalgic chill watching the scene again to take a this screencap.
The answer is that anime rarely have good stories and even when they do that's not what people appreciate or look for in anime.
But I do watch 90s anime user. I actually just rewatched Rurouni Kenshin, it was still pretty great. Saitou vs. Kenshin is still one of the greatest anime fights, top 5 material honestly. I didn't really like Tsuiokuhen though, it was really underwhelming and melodramatic.
So it's "irrelevant" because it's cooler to stuff yourself with forgetable ongoing shows so that you can shitpost about it with Sup Forums?
I was God tier Sci-fi fan then during its golden days. Anime was way way too outlandish and off putting in the 90s. Absolutely hated it and avoided it like the plague. Somewhere around 2005 and 6 as it was starting to clean up its act and start sexually exploiting middle and high school girls did I give it another shot. I liked it so I stayed. It appealed to the catgirl/kemonomimi fetish I developed.
I haven't really watched any anime since around 2011 or 12. I might come back someday.
It's a topic anyone on Sup Forums can say something about.
If it's your first day on here and you don't know anything about anime at all this is where you can throw your two cents in.
The answer is that anime rarely have good stories
Stugeon's Law works for any medium, not just anime. 90% of TV shows from America also suck.
and even when they do that's not what people appreciate or look for in anime.
Translation: Its not like Cowboy Bebop so it sux!
Get over yourself dude.
Yes, or at least that's the reason most people watch anime. They want to talk about the hot new thing with other fans and even if when they branch out into older classics it's for similar reasons. I'm not saying this is a good thing but from observing how most fans behave this is what seems to be the case.
I didn't mention Sturgeon's law or Cowboy Bebop. Maybe stop projecting so hard dude.
Saber Marionette was a modest series
What does that even mean?
but I always loved how they switched from goofy comedy to hearth stringing tension with flowing ease.
A lot of 90s shows did that. Which is why I suspect some people claim the 90s shows were better. But its kind of dumb since there's plenty of post 2000 shows that did this same thing. And 'feel' like a 90s show. There's also plenty of 90s shows that didn't follow that formula at all.
I didn't mention Sturgeon's law
You kind of did. Claiming the majority of something sucks is pretty much pointing out Sturgeon's Law, even if you don't know what it is. And that guy is right. Anime is no different from other mediums in having lots of bad shows. So pointing it out is effectively a null point.
Don't fall for the 90s anime meme, that's why it's just a meme.
Don't fall for anime meme
The OAVs have a better art style than that movie. That movie was honestly a disappointment for me. The TV show had a ridiculously low budget, but was much better in writing. It has so many funny one liners.
Claiming the majority of something sucks is pretty much pointing out Sturgeon's Law
No it isn't and I personally disagree with Sturgeon's Law. It's just a catchy generalization that isn't rooted in reality. You're just trying to kill the discussion by going "STURGEON'S LAW 90% OF EVERYTHING IS SHIT. ANIME IS THE SAME AS EVERYTHING ELSE SO DON'T TELL ME CARTOONS HAVE BAD WRITING".
You can really tell Macross was using an ancient production model. Episodes 1-2 are clearly Mikimoto's styles, but in episode 3 it goes full 70's. I guess the position of animation director wasn't really a thing at that point.
I don't remember Naga's boob having a mole
What does that even mean?
It means it wasn't a big game changing hit and it had its fair share of cliches and flaws (specially after the first season) but nonetheless managed to gather a small loyal fanbase and got away with playing with certain themes in interesting ways with it's semi-sci-fi setting.
You know what else is a catchy generalization? Claiming the majority of something is bad. Especially since you have no physical way to see even 1% of all the anime out there.
Saber Marionette J was actually one of the most popular shows in Japan for that year. Its more that J to X was so weak that the series fans left.
But its kind of dumb since there's plenty of post 2000 shows that did this same thing
But then they suddenly stopped after 2010 for some reason. Or at least in the last two years I haven't seen anything that does mood swings in such a fluid way as it was used to be done back in the 90's.
Most popular stuff like that nowadays is sudden and aiming for shock value rather than a dramatic turn. I guess it's the tendency popularized by shows like Madoka.
There was also shocking moments back then but usually had increasing tension beforehand or subtle build up that made everything fall into place when the turn is taken.
That's not a generalization, it's just a fact. If you're claiming otherwise then your argument is laughable. Trust me there is no treasure trove of amazingly written anime out there.
I haven't seen anything that does mood swings in such a fluid way as it was used to be done back in the 90's.
I actually think the key thing about the '90s formula' is that over half the show would be character focused filler episodes. Sometimes it would be comedic like in Slayers and sometimes it would be dramatic like in Kenshin. But the point is, it focused on developing the characters before the adapted manga plot happened.
A lot of shows coming out now only have 13 episodes (if that). So they jump right into the source material without getting that character development. And if the source material had weak character development early on, then the anime reflects that.
A good example would be Sailor Moon. The original manga has a pretty weak start. The anime developers recognized this and had 3/4 the first season focused on comedic filler content that got the audience to care for the characters before the drama started. But the more recent Sailor Moon Crystal is a straight telling of the manga and you hardly care about the characters.
I already agreed the majority of anime is bad. I was pointing out that its the same over any medium of entertainment. And that you saying as such didn't have any meaning with your original point. Not that you had a point anyway since you admitted you barely watch any anime as it is and yet generalized all anime.
I guess you can say JtoX was the Endless Eight of its franchise.
I still watched it and liked some parts but I realized the storytelling lost some of it's flexibility and felt forced at times. I get where they wanted to go and it was interesting as also some reveals were shocking (everything related to Dr. Hess for example). But the easily avoidable misunderstandings to set the conflict in motion and the long somber feel drawn for many episodes made the experience tiring at certain points. The first show as much more well put together.
Something can be a generalization and a fact at the same time. If it can't, then your whole point kind of falls apart.
You're the one who admitted to not watching any anime when you said it's impossible to watch even 1% of all anime. It's pretty obvious how inexperienced you are in anime let alone other mediums. You agreeing that anime has bad writing doesn't mean shit when you immediately negate that by saying that everything else is also shit in the same proportion according to Sturgeon's Law so it doesn't matter. That's called deflecting criticism.
hentai is probably the only anime that I would be confident is actually legitimately going down in quality over the years. All those ones that are literally just single frames that they contort digitally to emulate motion look like shit. Just glad they haven't caught on in mainstream anime
That's the 80s.
One thing what I miss the most in the modern anime compared to the 90's is the ridiculousness in the story, for example Koni-chan, Super Milk-chan, Dance with Papa and pic related are absurd, but really funny to watch.
Also, the Mahou Shoujo was better in the 90's, series like Cyber team in Akihabara, Cutie Honey Flash and Mahou Tsukai Tai are underrated in the genre, nobody talk about those series.
the mech battles are mostly good. It's more the characters that looked like shit
got the audience to care for the characters before the drama started
This goddamnit. Maybe seems tiresome for people now butimissthis format. And probably why I hold 90's harem in higher regard. Saber Marionette J made its mission to give one or two episodes of introduction for each character,get them to interact, let their personalities clash and bend together and let us now why they work as a group bofere throwing them into the main plot. To the point that you really feel something about MC Otaru picking one above the rest. And it does makes you question the harem end as an actual reasonable option.
The 12 episode format hurts even if they get multiple seasons because most of the time those aren't planned from start so the story arcs always try to wrap up withing that short time an we only Getto know the characters in small bits focusing only on their man gimmicks and quirks.
the mech battles are mostly good
No. They were literal slide shows at certain points. Some action scenes were literally animated on 8s.
You're the one who admitted to not watching any anime when you said it's impossible to watch even 1% of all anime.
No I didn't. When the hell did I say I never watched any anime?
As for my 1% comment, its based on things that are easy to calculate. There's over 8,000 anime series over 60 years. And many of the shows before 1990 were hundreds of episodes long. It would take someone sitting down and watching nothing but anime 24/7 for 10 years just to get through 1% of it.
And the reason I brought this up was to point out your generalizations are dumb. Since you can't have seen the majority of anime, you can't make a generalization of the majority of anime. You can only make a generalization based on what you have seen. Which you still shouldn't even be doing that.
It's pretty obvious how inexperienced you are in anime let alone other mediums.
Oh please do tell me what I've watched and haven't watched.
Mahou Tsukai Tai
I watched the OVA recently and it's some oddball 90s ecchi goofiness rather than mahou shoujo. It's not bad, but overall kinda pointless story. Aburatsubo was the best thing to come out of it.
No. They were literal slide shows at certain points. Some action scenes were literally animated on 8s.
That's why I said they were mostly good, not all 100% good
What are your thoughts on Utena?
Junichi Sato is a very odd director. He can make one show for general audiences like Sailor Moon. Then he makes some totally oddball comedy that seems aimed at a specific market like you said.
That's the 70s.
And many of the shows before 1990 were hundreds of episodes long
Not as many as you'd think. Again, it's obvious how fake your knowledge is. Seriously 1% is nothing but feel free to post your "calculations".
Some action scenes were literally animated on 8s.
Damn boy. Don't have to be that harsh. Though I can't really argue with it.
Also, as an aside, I just wanted to point out my major beef with mecha. At least when it comes to stuff like Macross and Gundam, there is just no real reason for the fighting. The majority of character development and drama comes from what they do outside the mecha fighting. And the mecha fighting just feels tacked on. Probably because it is just there to sell toys.
That show never got subbed right?
you just don't know what you're talking about
I can say the same thing to you, since you're not providing evidence to counteract my claims. But then you wouldn't be able to hide behind your wall of deflection.
user, people like mechs because they're cool. They like to to seem being used in those settings.
In English? I don't know, in my language is fully subbed.
Also, the Mahou Shoujo was better in the 90's, series like Cyber team in Akihabara, Cutie Honey Flash and Mahou Tsukai Tai are underrated in the genre, nobody talk about those series.
Probably because Junichi Sato has been focused too much on Aria and not making tons of Mahou Shoujo like he did. Though Princess Tutu and a few others were made after 2000.
Yeah, im sure its fully subbed in spanish and finnish.
Are any of those more absurd than Keijo? Or Girls und Panzer? Or Teekyu?
90s anime is garbage normie tier.
I gathered that. But for someone like me, I don't really care about seeing a mecha fly around and destroy tons of faceless enemies. It needs some kind of character connection. Eva is a mess in many ways, but one thing they got right was actually making you care about what happens inside the mecha as well as outside. While in a series of Gundam, fights are just filler between the character drama (which happens outside the mecha).
many of the shows before 1990 were hundreds of episodes long
Doesn't look like a big list to me, disregarding ones split up into multiple seasons.
A wild ride with a great soundtrack. Both movie and the series. As expected of Ikuhara.
You're just arguing for the sake of arguing. Why else would you be using total runtime instead of number of unique shows seen when calculating percentage of anime seen? Especially since the discussion is about the quality of writing so variety is more important than watching all 1000 episodes of some never ending kids show. I really can't think of a reason why you'd do that unless you were just really trying to win a point more than anything.
Yes, Koni-chan and Milk-chan are really random in some episodes, Nichijou tier or Nichibros tier.
Why else would you be using total runtime instead of number of unique shows seen when calculating percentage of anime seen?
Because you can't claim to have seen the 'majority' of anime if you just watch all the shortest series possible and ignored the long ones. Which is what a lot of dumbasses these days do. They think they've seen the majority of anime because they've seen 300 shows, all OAVs or 13 episode series.
Especially since the discussion is about the quality of writing so variety is more important
Quality of writing is specifically why you need to watch a variety of LENGTH of shows. Not just a bunch of shows of the same short length. If all you watch is shows that only got one season, of course you'll think anime sucks. You watched nothing but shows that weren't good enough to get a second season.
Some series are just directed that way so it's up to preference. I've never seen fights as filler as you said though, especially in Gundam 0079 where Amuro is a teenage civilian having to come to terms with piloting the Federation's super killing machine. I can sort of see where you're coming from with Macross and i'd fully understand with some Gundam anime like Zeta where battles can get pretty cumbersome.
You can do a lot with a 12-episode adaptation if you have a competent team that has some semblance of understanding for the source material and knows how to bend it around to fit the length constrict. Filler shouldn't make the character development, only enhance it if anything. That development should already be in the original story. I found MP100's adaptation pretty great despite a couple things here and there. On the other hand there's lengthy adaptations like HxH that I just could not get into. Although they got plenty of episodes to adapt the material, a lot of times I didn't think the spirit of the story was really there because of the music and color design of the show, core parts of this medium. The bad outweighted the good IMO (not to trigger any 90s vs 10s fags, I don't care for the previous adaptation and its supposedly superior filler episodes).
In the end if you have competent people working on the project that are familiar with the tone/genre it should work out fine, no matter how many episodes they have to work with. Or, do something completely different while retaining some essence of the original concept a la GITS film.
Lost interest with the Black Rose arc when 3/4 the cast became irrelevant. Went to anime expo later and saw the movie in a free premiere. And it was the dumbest movie I've ever seen.
Gundam 0079 is a huge example of this. The vast majority of fights in that show are not only hillariously bad but just pointless filler to remind the audience that White Base is being chased. For a while, it becomes almost a monster of the week formula. "Send out the mechs to Capture White Base! Send out Amuro to defeat an entire battalion on his own! Wah don't make me fight! No, you must fight! RAWR!" A few mechs are destroyed and the enemy runs away. Repeat 20 times.
Black Rose arc
3/4 the cast became irrelevant
Is this a ruse?
I've been watching anime since the late 80s. There is the same percentage of good to bad shows in each decade. Each decade just had more shows than the last. With 2000-2010 seeing a 10 fold increase in the number of shows. One year back in the 90s may have had 3 good shows. While one year today will have around might have 10-15 good shows. But the amount of shows you'd need to see in total to recognize the good from the bad is far beyond what people can do. Unless you do nothing but watch anime for 1,000 hours like I do.
I think you have more of a problem with the format of the show, not the giant robot fighting (which I found pretty fun for the most part).
Anime didn't get good till around 2000 because before then it was for literal children. if it wasn't normie shit like eva or ghost in the shell.
Why the fuck did you expect it to be like J-Decker?
Second best shoujo anime coming through, from the 90's
Anime didn't get good till around 2000 because before then it was for literal children.
the most popular Sienen series were before 2000
I can't talk to these fucking stupid kids.
90% of the thread is Saber Marionette talk, is the show really that good?
Eva is for normies.
90% of the thread is Saber Marionette talk
Like 8 posts out of 157 are Saber Marionette talk.
is the show really that good?
Its a love or hate it kind of show. I enjoyed it because of the solid balance of comedy and drama. Also because it broke a lot of the cliches of harems.
Evangelion is for children
Pre Eva seinen were probably all OVAs.
So is Cowboy Bebop. But the fact that 'normies' like it points out how popular they are.
literal children are not normies
Anyway even if we assume that your bullshit of a point is true, how is anime for literal manchildren aka otaku anime is any better.
LotGH is still normie
Sup Forums has always hated bebop.
All the Ghost in the Shell Material outside of the first movie came out after 2000.
It's all about your taste, for me is one of the best harem series I've been seen. The girls are likeable and the story is good.
Sup Forums has always hated bebop.
Sup Forums has always hated bebop
Your new is showing.
Its funny, but I just realized the majority of my favorite anime started in the late 90s and ran into the 2000s. And can technically be considered both.
Sup Forums has taste and always hated mainstream toonami trash and 2deep4u shit. Why do you think naruto and other threads like it got shitposted to high hell years ago? Lurk more.
Sup Forums has taste
Oh god, the hits just keeps coming!
and always hated mainstream toonami trash
2004-2006 Sup Forums was basically nothing but mainstream taste. With dozens of daily Naruto and Cowboy Bebop threads. The 'Sup Forums culture' you see today came about because people started lashing out against this early form of Sup Forums.
Thankfully this kind of behavior is finally dying out and a lot more people start to appreciate Naruto for what it is nowadays.
It was from Sup Forums I learnt that Cowboy Bebop supposedly is one of the best anime ever.
It may not be Sup Forums's favourite subject to talk about, but Cowboy Bebop is well recognized as good.
It's people who come in complaining that not all threads are about Cowboy Bebop that Sup Forums doesnt like.
Sup Forums was always isolationist and wanted to be different from the rest of Sup Forums. It never got infested with normies like the rest of Sup Forums did. Sup Forums is special from the rest of Sup Forums, it has a well deserved elitist attitude because Sup Forums has better taste than reddit, MAL, tumblr, etc.
Sup Forums has taste
Stop replying to the bait, people.
Tomoyo got real weird in the last dozen episodes of the show.
Sup Forums was always
Just stop talking. You've already painfully proven through multiple post you weren't around in the first few years of Sup Forums. It was funny at first but now its just getting sad.
Hello reddi.t, get the fuck off my website.
tons of threads where people drool over moe shit which looks exactly like the last series they watched
Even /co/ and /sp/ has better taste in anime than Sup Forums.
must be reddit boogeyman
She was always weird from the start. She just changed from being obsessed with Sakura to obsessing over getting Sakura in a relationship. And she even had a little of this early on.
Implying this isn't the most underrated 90s series.
you must be 18 to post here
/co/mblr has better taste than Sup Forums
You must be from reddit
This series was really spooky.
Yeah, but nearing the end she really amped up the OHOHOHO factor. Maybe the conflicting goals of bedding Sakura and getting Syaoran to bed her were frying her brain.
Nice, I love to shill for 1998, and another argument in its favour is always welcome.
Can you say what you like about it so I can know if I should watch it?
Nah. Her brain was fried from the start.
It watched them from to back not to long ago and it was all the same shit to be honest. I'd say the first one does have some slight edge over JtoX but nothing major.
Best Mario Net.
It's mecha and some slight horror elements done right, feels like I'm watching a Godzilla anime half the time.
Mahou Tsukai Tai is one my all-time favorites.
Been here since 2009 and it's literally the first time someone tries to unironically shit on Cowboy Bebop.
Wish I had been older when I watched what little I caught of Dance with Papa on TV. I'd probably really love it nowadays.
I should rewatch this show. Couldn't get into it back in the day besides it being Japan's #1 show.
Then again, I just rewatched Escaflowne and the show fell apart at the exact same place I remember from 15 years ago.
SMJ was harem but it managed to be fresh, cool and nostalgic for 90s standards.
beside, the first season was actually the best because of the sci-fi post apocalyptic escenario.
you cant do this kind of stuff anymore. or you actually can but it would feel repetititve and nobody would remember your anime in 4 or 5 years.
For starters the bad guys were much much better. Gartland, Faust and the Saber Dolls were much more recurrent and entertaining antagonists than that China guy that spend the entire fucking second half of season 3 doing ominous looks and talking out of his ass with his three Marionette minions with very interesting designs hyped by the opening that ultimately just appeared for a coupled episodes and did basically nothing aside of stalling the main cast before getting destroyed. Compared with the fun yet intense constant clash in season 1 that led to a more serious and poingnant turning point it felt lazy.
Fortunately it was followed by Doctor Hess and the finale which had some interesting stakes but still.
Worst 90s show ever
I think I'll wait. I read the reviews on MAL, and I'm already working on Brain Powerd, for highly divisive mecha with tits in the opening. Maybe when I finish that, I can try Neo Ranga. But starting two of these may be too much.
Lurk for 2 years before posting.
Yeah I agree, s1 story was more dynamic and engaging but still didn't feel like it was exceedingly better than s3. The biggest draw back from s3 was the memory loss arc that dragged like a motherfucker.
Well there's a good chance it is.
I read the reviews on MAL
Come to think of it why aren't mech and horror used more? I think it could be a pretty good mash up if done correctly and I know there's only been a couple titles using it.
People only hate 0083 because of the NTR.
The biggest draw back from s3 was the memory loss arc that dragged like a motherfucker
Agreed. That was the loosiest point of JtoX.
Sup Forums has taste
I watched the OVA some years ago and it was rather unimpressive. I expected it to focus more on magic maybe? I hated the heroine for being such a retard.
Megumi Hayashibara is the lead.
Not true it starts out great pretty much TOP GUN the animation then all of a suddenly half ways it turns out into dragged out boring shit fest.
People hate 0083 because the characters are awful and poorly written. The mechs and battles are also dull, despite the technical quality of the animation.
Megumi Hayashibara is so dead nowdays
Otaru is technically the lead. Lime just gets the focus. Hanagata and cherry steals the show.
On top of that it's quite the joke when it comes to being a prequel it does not really add anything.
She retired in the early 2000s. And she still reprises her roles for any show that gets more seasons or a remake. Which means she still does Pokemon, Detective Conan, Slayers, Eva and 3x3 Eyes. Not bad for someone who is retired.
All the marionettes are pretty great desu.
Not so retired. She had a small role in Cross Ange.
when it comes to stardust memories i tend to tell people if you absolutely love katokis 90s designs, watch katoki design fanwank because thats all there is to it
Bloodberry is pretty boring. And Marine is literally just Lime with blue hair. But otherwise yes.
She was in Rakugo this year.
She also had/has a main role in Shouwa Rakugo, I wouldn't call her retired.
I was actually speaking from a S1-only perspective. And at least there, I don't think Bloodberry was boring.
I'm not sure who's better between Cherry and LIme though.
There's raw's for this? Where?
It's on KM.
Has anybody watched this show? To me it's dark magical girls done right.
She was Hakumen no Mono in Ushio to Tora, Miyokichi in Rakugo, narrator in Sengoku Choujuu Giga, bunch of roles in Khara's Animaot Expo shorts including Meme from ME!ME!ME!.
She's still very much around.
I've seen it.
It gave me a new perspective of how boring an anime could be.
Thinking back, it had some great imagery and a cool atmosphere, but it was probably the most boring anime I've ever seen.
Maybe I'll watch it again one day, because it's a bit interesting in some ways. The problem is just that the episodes are so long, and so boring, it's such a chore to get through, despite its shortness.
we got that piece of shit 0083 instead of a continuation of F91
yeah fuck you sunrise
I should mention we're talking about Shamanic Princess, in case I look through the archive again.
Any of you fags watch Key the Metal Idol? Been wanting to watch it for years but I always kept on putting it off. Been on a 90s binge the last few weeks to watch some of the less mainstream stuff I've missed. It's good
Reminder than Shinji was in another show a year before Eva came out.
I watched the first 6 or so episodes and quit because nothing was happening. People claim the ending was amazing, but that isn't good when you can't even get to the ending.
The fuck is KM?
top of the page newfriend
Ruka was the only decent person in that entire fucking show.
Only if you're a fedora tipper. The good thing about Utena is that everyone is terrible.
Only if you're a fedora tipper.
there was too much bullshit about Key's history in the end but it was indeed good series
nowadays it would end totally different because of muh social media
Early 90s > late 80s > early 80s > late 90s > dark time of transition to digital
Stuff like Mahoromatic S1 is still watchable while most of the other shows around that time is a fucking mess.
Stuff like Mahoromatic S1 is still watchable
Except for its horrible story and characters. Meanwhile a show like Princess Tutu had digital animation, but was still a better show.
Your attention span is too short.
try fucking off
I hated Kara no Kyoukai, Gits:SAC and Fate Zero too.
I think of them as a "dark and talking anime", with only darkness and people talking about boring things. Shamanic Princess is the same type of thing
Is Mahoromatic worth continuing? I stopped at the end of S1 because while I thought the concept was okay I think the space battles like in the finale and what the maid robot was doing before she was declared as terminal would be the things we should've seen.
I assume you have somewhere around 50-100 completed?
The second season adds a pointless character who just adds a bunch of filler until you get to the story conclusion you expected to end season 1.
I wish Princess Tutu was just a little bit better with its use of lightning, it'd be perfect. The theatrical aesthetic for backgrounds during "fights" didn't really hit me until a second watch. BD release when?
So many children I still gotta fuck again b4 new year.
The end of S2 is worth it
310, including movies and OVAs.
BD release when?
Never, it was released during an odd transition between normal and digital and I don't believe it has masters.
friendly reminder that
Zai Tess Shi On did nothing wrong
BD release when?
Sadly never. Because its source is digital 480p. And doesn't have a film source to upscale or a 1080p digital source.
I remember that I was pretty into anime in the 90's but stopped watching them because I couldn't stand all the early digital stuff with often super bad CG.
Only got into anime again after seeing stuff of Zetsobou Sensei.
What's that anime where the heroes trying to save a girl, but the girl is the final boss?
Magic Knight Rayearth. Zagato did nothing wrong.
I think when computers get more intelligent they'll be able to reconstruct the original lines and remove the blur.
When you look closely you can kinda make out where the lines are supposed to be, a computer could probably do the same, if not now, at least in three years or so.
Nah, it's not that one, it's about a curse, where the heroes who saved the girl turned into monsters in a dungeon.
And agreed, Zagato best boy.
Talking about pre 2000 like it was yesterday
It was nearly 17 years ago
(img is post but idc it's pre 2000 vibe)
why haven't you read Please Save My Earth
That just shows how good of an actor Shinji really is
Thanks, I was starting to feel up and now you've depressed me again.
But I did when I was in my Shoujo phase. Any other essential Shoujo?
the covers are sick, but i'm keeping it backlogged.
7seeds and Basara dude also Record of a Fallen Vampire is nice
Anything by Moto Hagio. A Cruel God Reigns Over Us was really good, but it will fuck you up hard.
just read it, you won't regret it. it's a wild ride from beginning to end. the sequel is really good too
Didn't it have an OVA? Was it good?
the OVA was really good, but it doesnt even cover half of the story. Don't watch the OVA until you've read the manga or you'll spoil parts of it. The OST is incredible as well
That makes me mad.
he doesn't read Heian Period literature
Technically iPhones since they're too shit to leave original filenames intact.
watching anything from the worst decade of anime
not even nostalgia glasses can save it
I think the 40's were worse.
The 50s and 60s too, probably. Haven't seen anything, but I doubt there is anything of value there. Maybe one or two movies, at best.
The 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s and 10s all have great anime, so here it's more a matter of opinion.
You're far too late, I claimed her 15 years ago
I feel like hentai was the door opener for anime back then. I've yet to see wordsworth topped in production quality though.
On that note, is anyone else sad dragon pink was never properly concluded?
90s was the beginning of the end of expensive OVA due to Japans economic crisis
90s anime is as visually palatable as licking a clown's asshole.
It doesn't look bad
This is the kind of things that can make huge progress thanks to deep learning. Scientists and engineers are working on it.
3 seems a bit too soon for a commercial application in renovating old anime though.
No because only the first episode has good animation. On that vein, WW also looked funky in the last episodes but that never stopped me from jacking it to pic related getting culturally enriched by Wortoshika.
not watching 90s anime
not having HOT BLOOD
ANSWER ME, Sup Forums!
I did in the 90's
But I did.
Why were there so many dumb but serious anime in the 90s?
if it wasn't normie shit like eva
i everyone knows your baiting user, but there was nothing like eva before eva came out
She was resistant at first but she
The manga wasn't bad.
I just wanted to conclude the story instead of leaving off on pink dieing.
If I wanted hotblood I'd just watch any Getter show instead of this meme.
I couldn't stand this show simply because of the animation shift it had in every single episode (that I can remember). Early digital animation was true suffering.
Oh shut up.
Evangelion was influenced by all those? Interesting
What is the first, Rose of Versailles?
How can I watch 90's anime for HOT BLOOD when manly sideburns were basically extinct by then?
0083 Top Gundam was fine. We should have gotten a proper F91 series period. The movie had a messy middle part and an ending more rushed than Gundam X even. Seabook and his friends sure were better than half of the ZZ crew and they got wasted on that hackjob
I love 80s anime, but I think it has the highest number of derp eyes.
He doesn't watch 90 animes
Pretty good opinion, but really late 80s and early 90s are pretty indistinguishable and should really be considered a single artistic period in the media.
boy do I have some bad news for you user
Goddamn, pegged me right in the 23-25 age bracket.
It's like my brain processes the last 17 years in some kind of biased time compression stream, where 2000 to 2017 feels like it passed on a logarithmic scale rather than a linear one. Where 2012 feels like it was just a year ago and 2005 feels like it was 5 or so years ago and 2000 feels like it was a decade ago.
And Ryoko was in Ranma 1/2 before Tenchi Muyo.
How's Outlaw Star?
But that episode was great regardless.Also one of the few times I really got to fully appreciate Yuri's Yuris.
closer to the moon landing than the present day
Are any of them actually good? The only show I've watched was Busou Renkin and it was kind of crap. I figured it was just a meme like WE SURE ARE 90'S KIDS.
The only show I've watched
Just finished it today, it's fun and whacky but not purely a comedy. Very much a shonen fighting show.
Fun fact, the scene in episode 17 where
Mel is in the Silgry religious temple place at the start of the episode, the chanting in the background is a recitation of the Quran.
Is the Outlaw Star anime an adaptation of the manga, vice-versa, or is it one of those weird mixed-media things like Galaxy Angel and Milky Holmes where each entry is completely different from the other?
the oldest show I've watched was from 2007
i don't know if i'd call this good.
i enjoyed it, but i don't think i can.
show gave me my waifu though
dark time of transition to digital
i keep forgetting how bad things were
genuinely low point
speaking of excel saga, is the manga even on the internet?
am i just going to have to find and buy every volume?
It's okay. I think it's overrated, but you can get some enjoyment from it.
Space adventure. If you let it take you along for the ride it's a whole lot of fun. Well animated as well.
Nabbed this webm in another thread. Anyone know which chinese cartoon this is?
Your whole sentence was the Opposite for me.
My interest skyrocketed in the Black Rose arc, and the movie was simply genius.
The old animation style looks like SHIT and the characters are not cute.
It's right there in the metadata.
El-Hazard was good.
Too bad I don't know how to read the webm metadata.
I almost exclusively watch pre-2000 anime though.
Try lurking more.
find doujins of SMJ
bbc and ntr tags everywhere
It's ridiculous but Aisha is cute.
No. NO. IT'S NOT TRUE.
I dont know about that
90s anime had a lot of quirky harem space-themed shows, which hold a special place in my heart. They also took more liberies with fantasy themes than the series today do. What a shame.
I think anyone who liked You're Under Arrest would enjoy Mainichi ga Nichiyoubi, only problem was that it was too short but I really enjoyed the dynamic between all the characters. Every girl was best girl and the music was pretty nice.
I want to hug yoriko!
When I was younger, there was only one time my dad walked in on me watching anime. Naturally, it was this scene.
Well at least he didn't think you were gay because of it.
tfw you're old enough to see this every time
AXN also exposed me to the "dark ages of digital", where many shows try to shove CGI into their works regardless of it being jarring.
I want to snu snu with Aisha and receive a crushed pelvis
As do I my friend.
What would marriage with Aisha be like?
I don't know what it is but I have a boner for this kind of hairstyle in anime.
Just read the official mango, then read the h-manga made by that mangaka.
Fancy Lala is okay. Can be okay to watch but never something you want to.
Okay. What anime do you recomend me, user-kun?
Is Saber Marionette really good?
There are dozens of 90s anime you should watch before Saber Marionette (I think?), but it's still an entertaining watch. Just search the thread for Saber Marionette, you'll get tons of opinions. I wouldn't say it's "really good", but goon enough to be entertaining.
Okay, will try to see if I can come up with 24 90s anime you should see before Saber Marionette, based on consensus, my own opinions, and questionable and controversial opinions of a few people.
Evangelion, Utena, Lain, NTHT, Cowboy Bebop,Trigun, Sakura, Sailor Moon, Nadia, Kodocha, Kare Kano, Initial D, Escaflowne, Turn A Gundam, Rayearth, Slam Dunk, Yu Yu Hakusho, Infinite Ryvius
Okay can't be bothered to look through all season charts for popular stuff but I think it should be doable, especially if you include OVAs and movies.
I'd add Mahou Tsukai Tai and Cat Girl Nuku Nuku. They're just 6-episode OVAs, so they're quick to watch.
I saw the majority of this list, but I will watch Nadia, Kodocha and Escaflowme. Nice list. Thanks.
Out of those three, I haven't seen Kodocha, but Sup Forums loves it, Escaflowne's MC didn't appeal to me and Sup Forums doesn't like the ending, but it's considered a classic and still good, and I prefer Nadia out of the three. It has two episodes that are known for being shit, and a few more that don't progress the plot much, but overall it's really good.
It's not like Saber Marionette is a terrible waste of time either. Some people in this thread have it as a favorite, and if you haven't seen much pre-Love Hina harem, it's a valueable insight into how harems could be in the past(for me it's the only old harem I've seen so I don't really know if it's representative). It's still, for the most part, a fun anime, so watch it if you want to.
I am pretty sure I want to have sex with another child as a direct result of watching anime and buying action figures.
she ruined me.
i can't get off to anything but strong women now.
And this is why even after 38 years of life I still can't stand to actually watch anime. It's still to this day a glorified slideshow.
yfw anime never ever
The story was average, but the OP and ED songs are stuck in my head forever.
I didn't like the anime much, but you made me want to listen to the songs now
I can't find a decent torrent for the OST and it's super pricy on Amazon JP. Just why.
I didn't really like the songs that much either, when I listened now.
Shake It, from Soreyuke, Uchuu Senkan Yamamoto Yohko is pretty catchy.
I liked the OVA too. The girl had very pretty eyes, and I love pretty eyes.
Before I saw it I expected it to be a parody of Yamato due to the name similarity but it wasn't at all, completely independend, and not really a parody either.
I have to agree, although I really liked the Sailor Moon manga for its quick pacing, because there was a backdrop of the anime characterizations it filled in the gaps.
In general when I think back to my early weeb days in Jr and talking to my weeb friends 9/10 our discussion would be talking about the characters as if we knew them intimately rather than discussion the literal plot. In many cases we were too poor to get more than 5-10 episodes of a series but it didn't stop us from enjoying it.
My question is: Is character focused filler something that modern men even want to put up with?
or is it something only girls liked in the first place, SM wasn't that popular with men
What happened to
Saber Marionette J: The Last Story
All we get today is flat faces without noses.
which is ironic considering Japanese people find flats faces and noses gross chink aesthetics
My question is: Is character focused filler something that modern men even want to put up with?
They would if it was done well. But it has become associated with crap like Naruto and K-On.
A good example of non source related character development is Working.
There is a disturbing lack of Saucer in this thread.
Clicking to fill shit is much easier than painting it these days, why don't they add a bit more of shading? It looks like another generic lazy artstyle seasonal anime.
he didn't grow up in the 90s and rent obscure anime VHS tapes from the local rental store
I kind of miss the super long midnight anime specials on VOX
Didn't needed to, 90s shows were quite the "thing" and they even showed CCS or pic related everyday on tv.
watching BL on TV
Did this really air on TV outside of Japan?
Eva, Cowboy Bebop and Berserk are the only good ones.
I live in an ever loving weeb country, it aired at the same time as initial D and the songs were really catchy.
Anybody here read Houshin Engi and watched the anime? How's the adaptation? The story looks like a fun messy deviation and the OP is great but don't know much else.
And here I thought the anime designs were atrocious enough. Sasuga.
MAKE ME SHIIIIINING
Really? The character designs to me are some of the most appealing aspects of the manga and I guess the author in general. There are many of course that are pretty but for the most part I find them extremely charming and interesting, especially most characters that play a major role. Including the over sized gloves and shoes.
In the early 90s, we had to get anime from asian markets or friends. It was a huge deal when places like Hollywood Video and Blockbuster started stocking anime in the late 90s. My friend and I rented everything possible and copied them with a second VHS. Including the shitty shows.
Yes, really. It's even worse than Naruto wearing an orange tracksuit.
If you say so.
Trigun is rad.
I don't think it gets enough credit for it's pacing - the story is basically split into three acts - with each gun revealing a new segment.
It's one of my favorites from adolescence. Was pretty bummed out by Wolfwood. Watched it again last year with friends and it still holds up.
I watched 90s anime in the 90s.
LoGH is 1980's though. Checkmate.
Look it up again. The first season was 1988 but every other one was in the 90s taking about ten years to complete. You can't call it strictly an 80s anime.
All of it?
I haven't seen it, and I want to finish Cowboy Bebop before I start, which is pretty boring so I almost never watch it.
It may be the lack of cute girls, when I think about what I've enjoyed, I don't think there is a single anime without a cute girl
Someone please bump
I thought you couldn't bump twice in a row.
Anyway, to say something more useful, Video Girl Ai is pretty good. The first episode is really generic, and the end is so strange, but the romance in the middle was well executed.
asking for bumps
Juri is one of my favorite character in fiction
who is the green hair chick?
which timeline is this following? i actually like kiyone.
Locomotion was practically my rental store
mfw I discovered Cutie Honey Flash by a VHS.
Time's a lie.
But user, my favourite anime is from the 90s.
No one cares. Go back to /co/
Sailor Moon always makes me happy with its tone.
I'll be nice, since you don't seem to be very bright. Open the webm up in a media player and look for the title.
Neo Clean Modern best setting.
Trunks and Mai can't ever save their Earth
That is the absolute worst show I have ever seen.
RIP Studio Fantasia
The manga and the anime are pretty different
I've read the manga, and it's one of my favorites to this day.
Heard some complains about the anime though.
Endless waltz DVD and Escaflowne dvds had that, I remember the music they played with it, also 0083 was great and had a catchy OP
true hot blooded protags are stuck in the 80s and early 90s
good mecha designs are stuck in the 80s
good mahou shoujo are stuck between 80s and 90s
guns have been mostly forgotten
episodic shows aren't as common unless they're mahou shoujos
/fit/ girls have ceased to exist for the majority of recent shows
fanservice feels terrible and not natural anymore
fish out of water stories and "le dark twist" are the show's entire gimmick as opposed to a general backdrop for the story to develop
Creator admitted he was on drugs, shit tier shock value ending to anime adaptation, new one was complete shit as well
Yes it was.
Friend cleaning out her old house found Turn A DVDs and asked me if I wanted them
Thank you, based friend.
The "dark ages of digital" are still better than the 70's there many anime used life action material instead of CGI.
tfw Naga Va is married with Nagano
He can hear Naga laughs everydays
Is Yu Yu Hakusho good?
it's great up until a certain point
dub is bretty gud too
Wow all that shit taste in one post.
First half is literally perfect. Second half is shit. As user said, the dub is actually good. Whoever wrote the dub lines knew what they were doing.
justin cook, the guy who voiced yusuke, did almost everything apparently.
i think it's more pleasant to look at most of the time
I watched it back when it aired on TV and don't really remember anything other than the OP. Tried watching it recently and it was pretty atrocious overall (VA work, bgm, animation). I haven't finished the manga but I like it a lot so far, even if it gets a little confusing.
Really? The voices, bantz, screaming and language and tone were all perfect. He must have actually have been a weeb to get it that right.
unnatural fanservice is one of my biggest complaints with modern shows, next to the lifeless sameface artstyle
He doesn't watch 80's anime
My friends and I are twenty episodes into it right now. It's incredibly fun and the dub is great. Botan has an incredible ass and Kuwabara is fucking wonderful. I'm hyped for the Dark Tournament Saga.
the detective arc and the 4 kings was the shittiest part of all what the fuck
DT is one of the best anime arcs ever. I frequently rewatch it.
Togashi wanted to stop writing but they didn't let him, so he wrote it into the ground.
Kind of blows that Yamamoto Yohko's BD is an upscale. What a waste, who the fuck wants that show enough to spend for composite upscales?
Ah, the age in which TMS USA went full retard and desperated and enforced name changes in Latin American Spanish dubs in order to have a bigger chance to sell their series.
new art has more realistic shading and gradients
somehow looks more cartoony and unrealistic
How did they fuck this up so much?
Fuck you guys. Now I'm spending my time looking for opening credits of long-past shows.
most series were children's shows
most OVAs were utter garbage
all the good stuff was cherrypicked
As much as I love the 80s and 90s they were not as great as people make them out to be.
it's mostly in the facial designs and higher contrasts
older designs look full of passion and life, modern ones just look like they're bored or daydreaming constantly. basically template designers instead of actual artists taking realistic expression and stylizing them, which is how all animation talent in the west went extinct.
also better fashion
children's shows are generally far better than manchildren's shows
most ovas WERE garbage though, which is living proof of that
that change with the lady in the business suit is pretty jarring.
what the fuck
what the fuck are you doing on this board?
Coming from /co/ to pretend that flash "animation" colored in MS paint is great and that Chinese cartoons are all shit despite having seen about 20 during his whole life (not counting movies, of course).
To this day I still remember the lyrics to that song. The live version is god tier.
children's shows are generally far better than manchildren's shows
Is that a prop or a read corpse?
we don't have money so we have to draw everything as bad as possible and people would pretend to have better taste by watching our cheap product
90s anime in a nutshell
I watch that all the time.
Two episodes was not enough.
Shit would be so much better than the cookie cutter style they are using .
I agree, great song too
He doesn't watch shit that's glorified because of nostalgia-fags
Next you fags are going to tell me that Cowboy Bebop/Neon Genesis is good
Enlighten us user, which anime qualify as good for you?
Hunter x Hunter, Neon Genesis is 2deep4u garbage that actually has no meaning while Cowboy Bebop is just episodic that's only good for its OST. Not gonna lie though, the green bird scene was easily one of the best scenes in anime for me. But, outside of that, it was dull and Spike's past was generic as shit.
That kid shat on everything that is tumblr
Hunter x Hunter is good, i'll admit but it's hardly better than Bebop or NGE.
There's nothing 2deep4u about NGE. It's a character drama about people dealing with their personal issues, with a cryptic horror mecha setting as the catalyst for the action and their suffering. As the story progresses shit goes from bad to worse and seeing Shinj and the others come to terms with their flaws and turmoil was striking and particularly cathartic in the finale, especially if we count EoE.
Cowboy Bebop is also good. There's nothing wrong with episodic adventures. It's all well directed and characterised stylish fun that plays into the background theme of the show. Also, it wasn't about Spike's past being some mindblowing unique backstory so much as it was about him running away from it. All of his adventures were like an intagible "dream" when his past finally caught up to him. It's a relatable little story about facing reality, the mistakes we make in life and how we have to bear them or "carry that weight".
I mean, I can see why you personally might not enjoy them but refusing to call them good when you think Hunter x Hunter is good is really stretching it.
Neon Genesis is 2deep4u
Yeah if the most complex kind of narrative you're used to is shonen fighting schlock, sure.
if you wanna be elitist then go with 80s anime instead you piece of shit
Why doesn't modern anime use funny faces anymore? What happened to the big sweat drop, the bulging cross vein, the "fall backwards" gag?
Yuuhi best girl.
Saber Marionette sequels when
I dont care about SM sequels
It's currently my favorite anime of all time. Also 90s as fuck.
Exceprt unlike most shounen anime it kept fights under an episode long and didn't rely on bullshirt power ups and transformations.
Yes it's an adaptation, but has a different feel to it. The manga has much more gratuitous nudity and sex, and Gene is even more of an asshole.
tfw Outlaw Star S2 never
the closest we ever got was a crappy spinoff with shittier characters
I actually liked Angel Links more than I liked Outlaw Star
How and why the fuck is that possible? Literally everything OS did wrong AL does way worse.
How come? Angel Links had too much filler. The ending was good though. I admit I was touched.
This, in fact the ending was the one thing it did better than Outlaw Star, which had a rushed as fuck ending.
They still happen. You just ain't watching the shows that happen to have them because you don't like those types of shows.
I just found it more entertaining, I don't know why. But I didn't like Outlaw Star very much, and it's not like Angel Links is my favourite anime.
You're not OP
what are you waiting for?
I just needed something to bump the thread with, it was on page 10.
It would be cool if they brought back the 90s character design a bit, though. Like how they look in Saber Marionette and many other 90s anime
Projecting this much
Funny part is, people still draw manga this way. I also do miss it a lot
funny how things change.
i wonder if this is in the remake
I did. In the 90's.
Why doesn't modern anime use funny faces anymore?
They do. You just haven't been watching them.
