Welcome to the best place to discuss retro anime! Please keep your posts mainly focused around pre 2000s works - remakes are OK if they're based on an older work.

If you had to live in the world of a /cel/ Anime or Manga, which would you choose.
>>2151 it depends. Could you choose to be a character from that world?
>>2151 If you can avoid Zeiram the world of Iria seems pretty nice. Or Megazone 23, with its eternal 80s Japan (the height of human civilization)
>>2152 If you said you wanted to be a character, I'd say, 'yes', but since you asked, then fuck no. You have to be you. >>2153 I've not seen that show. Is it any good, or just a neat world that you'd like to live in?

Anime VHS Covers 09/28/2023 (Thu) 08:19:59 No. 2144 [Reply]
This may sound like a weird question to some but is there anywhere or anyone that collects, catalogs or is knowledgeable with regards to anime vhs, specifically the covers? Sorta in the realm of the laserdisc database that catalogs them, or just in general.

Thoughts on new cutie honey?
1 post omitted.
>>663 My favorite of all cutie honeys
>>663 The best one.
>>663 I'm on a big Nagai kick, so maybe I will re-watch it. I enjoyed it the most out of all the Honey iterations. It's nice to see Honey take on a new adventure instead of just a repeat of the manga's scenario with a twist.
Big fan of pretty much everything but the original 70s show. I remember seeing a clip of Shin Cutie Honey at a Rob Zombie concert and that selling me on his music. All around great franchise.
Good visuals but the story is a complete mess. It's the kind of pseudo-sequel where if you haven't seen the original you'll feel like you're missing important back-story, but if you -have- seen the original you'll just be confused the whole time how the two are supposed to fit together. IMO Re is the better OVA Cutie Honey, and F the better 90s Cutie Honey.

Self explanatory. What have you been watching, /ar/? Pic related is from the 1988 adaption of Starship Troopers. I've also been watching Legend of the Galactic Heroes Gaiden and Armored Trooper VOTOMS, both of which are very good.

I remember that when there still was a channel dedicated at anime and manga in my country they once aired a sci-fi anime that spoke about the story of a group of knights that had to protect a princess during her travel. Unfortunately i don't remember the name of the anime, the only thing i remember is that the drawing were of the lowest quality and the animation was even worse.

I never got into mecha, but I started watching Mobile Suit Gundam '79 and I'm really enjoying it. It's like a less polished LoGH with really great SFX. Seriously, I never really cared about that sort of thing before, but I recently thought about how much effort every explosion and plume of smoke must take. Or missiles? It's an art in of itself. It's also nice to become familiar with frequently referenced classic.
>>2074 give VOTOMS a go if you haven't already
>>2074 I finished 0079, I liked it a lot. I tried to watch other shows afterward, but couldn't get into them. Then I decided to start Zeta Gundam and wow... It was just amazing.

this guy and ten in a room. You have a pistol with one bullet. Choose wisely /lum/
15 posts omitted.
>>1584 I do like the ending, but I wish he had actually committed. It would have been better if Ataru said something a little more serious than just "i'll say it on my deathbed
>>1585 at least he somewhat admitted his true feelings for lum in that statement. UY is a rom-com after all anon. The series ending on a heartwarming but still relatively comedic note fits the series, but yeah I get what you're saying.
>>1586 Don't get me wrong, I like the ending I'm basically just kvetching because it isn't perfect imho
What's stopping me from just shooting the bigger one and pistol whipping the other little munchkin to death?
>>2108 nothing really. Cap ten and pull an nba youngboy on kentaro by pistol whipping him to death.

This is from "Princess Mononoke" . The recoil should have pushed it off her shoulder!

Not sure where else to post about it or who was all on the board back in the day, but since this Tomo thread is on the front page, FYI someone set /azu/ back up here I discovered https://azu.nfshost.com/azu/

60s-early 70s shoujo anon 08/28/2023 (Mon) 19:33:45 No. 2109 [Reply]
Morbid curiosity told me to look at this era of shoujo anime, so I started with Sasurai no Taiyou; it's not terrible even if hammier than I expected after a diet of 2000s stuff. I tried to sketch some of the character expressions in a sketchbook but it didn't come out great. Any other shoujo recommendations from this era I should check out?
I'm better on the late 70s, but I can run down the classics I know are translated. Princess Knight Attack No.1 Aim for the Ace I watched this, it's good) Cutey Honey Heidi, Girl of the Alps (more general kids than shoujo)
