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.

Best /cel/ Movies/OVAS of the 1990's. anon 02/17/2024 (Sat) 20:44:44 No. 2345 [Reply]
There was one guy on nyaa a few years back who made two lists of 10 movies and OVAs from the 80s as sort of a "starter pack" for retro anime. https://nyaa.si/view/1289794 https://nyaa.si/view/1267525 I've been wondering what a similar list would look like for other decades, specifically the 90's and 2000s. For the nineties I was thinking >Cyber City Odeo 808 (90) >Roujin Z (91) >Shōjo Tsubaki (92) >Porco Rosso (92) >Ninja Scroll (93) >Street Fighter (94) >Memories (95) >Perfect Blue (97) >Ghost in the Shell (97) >Princess Monoke (97) >End of Evangelion (97) >Tekken (98) >Jin Roh: The Wolf Brigade (99)

>>2345 Opinion... I would reevaluate the choices for 98 and 99, jin roh came out in 98 iirc and this is my opinion, tekken isnt something i would use as a recommendation for a starter pack. To be honest it stinks. For 94 i would recommend final fantasy lotc instead of street fighter as it seems to be more obscure and likely wouldnt be found on its own like street fighter would. For 90 i would maybe suggest record of lodoss but not wanting to fill list with too much of one genre.
>>2345 I really enjoyed cyber city oedo, I'm glad to see it mentioned. For your consideration as well: Cardcaptor Sakura: The Movie (99) Angel Cop (89 - 94) Gunsmith Cats (95) One of my suggestions is an extension of a TV show, another starts in the decade prior.. but this thread made me realize almost all of my favorites start in the 80s or the early 2000s! >>2531 I will also second lodoss, there isnt a lot of quality fantasy nowadays. Its all "I'm stuck in a video game but I'm actually a god/refrigerator!?" and everything works like a video game. Even including western media and live action, fantasy as a genre doesn't seem to get much of significant quality. Most of the material in the genre that I enjoyed was written, either as a novel or as a manga. Scifi and cyberpunk stuff gets all the love, it seems.

best 80s anime? Anonymous 01/18/2024 (Thu) 11:10:12 No. 2226 [Reply]
I want to watch all the classic and cult classic releases from the golden age but don't know where to start. Anyone have any recommendations?

>>2247 Actually I think the dub REMOVED music from scenes. It's been a while since I last watched it but I remember that stuck out when switching between the sub and dub.
>>2245 Just action, romance, and sex. Never been into robots.
>>2251 Well...still Dirty Pair. I liked Urashiman a lot, it's a goofy future cop show. Fist of the North Star is a classic if you can handle some shonen pacing Maison Ikokku is my favourite Takahashi and is one of the few to have a good ending Project A-Ko is pretty much the perfect anime
>>2226 Robot Carnival
How has nobody mentioned Ranma1/2? 1989..

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.
25 posts and 18 images omitted.
Started VOTOMS at >>2078's reccomendation. I haven't gotten too far in, but it's already really cool. I like the more human focus in comparison to Gundam. The robots here are just weapons of a war that ended right in the first episode as opposed to what might as well be a character of it's own. The suits are neat and seem way more practical, both from their scale, and also from the visible mechanisms. Also, they're all pretty similar rather than there being a couple types of mass production suits and then a ton of totally different over-the-top prototype suits. I've found the color used in the animation to be impressive. With how moody and gritty it is, I wouldn't expect it to be so vibrant.
>>2169 I could never get into gundam because of the lack of focus on the robot fights and the untouchable OP new gundam gary stu's. Regardless of all the pretending and WW2 fanatics speculating around the Universal century war, there's also no real small unit tactics in gundam like there is in VOTOMS. No charging in like an idiot and using exclusively melee weapons is retarded. Doesn't matter how cool Barbatos is, the ending to IBO should have happened the very first time the idiot tried to fight like that back in season 1. Though to its credit, barbatos has to be completely rebuilt several times vs traditional UC era gundams that maybe lose an arm once in a while but are still Gary stu's and the pilot is able to miraculously recover completely from being in a full body cast in between episodes. VOTOMS is more grounded and enjoyable. Its a shame how obscure it is.
I watched MSG: Formula 91. It's visually stunning, and okay in terms of plot. I think it started a bit slow and had too many characters that didn't serve any meaningful purpose. I didn't like.the weird new mobile suits at first (they remind me of the darth vader parody from Spaceballs), but they grew on me. The F91 itself is really cool. The bugs, while terrifying, I thought were a bit silly. I was expecting some sort of nanomachine sort of thing.

I finally finished OG Space Battleship Yamato recently, and I want to kick myself for not watching it earlier. Even with all of the odd aspects that happened likely due to production issues, the show deserves to be called a classic. I would like to continue with the rest of the OG series at some point, but I am confused on the watch order after Yamato II, so I was wondering if there was any guide for a watch order of Yamato, or any other suggestions to help out.
After trying to watch Macross a few times, I decided to watch DYRL instead. It's a rather bleak and gruesome movie. What I watched of the show was not so harsh. Still I thought it was very good.. A lot of what I liked without the (in my opinion) poor pacing of the TV series. I also preferred the updated designs, particularly Hikaru's. I thought he looked dumb in the TV Series. Valkyries are cool as ever. Maybe I'll go back and finish the series soon. There's some stuff that only got touched on that probably has more in the show, also to see the other differences that I haven't come across yet.

Have any of you seen Miracle Girls? It's show about two twins who can communicate telepathically and and teleport. It's more shojo that magical girl, but I remember liking it alot. I saw it some years ago and started laughing on the second episode when a plane gets hijacked by terrorists as part of a joke, thinking how they couldn't make a plot like that today.

I have very entry-level taste in Japanimation, and I'm only really interested in horror mango. Really, my interest in both is pretty limited. I was looking to delve deeper into the work of Kazuo Umezu to see what interests me besides The Drifting Classroom and remember there being a YouTube video that went over his career, but now I can't find it. Maybe it's a good thing, since I'm running out of space for books. I guess I'll continue reading Junji Ito in the meantime.

https://yewtu.be/watch?v=GJ3aTmlLkv8 >I... I can't see them! >they are beyond even the eyes of God! How do you folks feel about classic Dragon Ball? Personally obsessed with the 23rd Budoukai and Saiyan arcs. Insurmountably peak shonen, imo.

>>561 The original is a vindicated classic and the original series in general tends to focus more on the martial arts angle then the trademark beam spam that occurs later (starting with the fight against freeza).

>>562 The first three DBZ movies are still pretty martial arts-oriented. I think they feature the best fight choreography in official DB media.

Finally a place where I can discuss the dragon ball series in its prime, none of that DBS nonsense or over the top powerlevel shenanigans, just the way I once knew the franchise. Just an excuse to bring this thread back with the dragon balls lol
>>557 I really liked dragonball when i was younger, but I was a bit too dumb as a kid to pirate the anime/manga, and was more a fan of the weird online mix the sonic community had with them. Nazo Unleashed being the huge deal at the time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-etGCr7SM4 I'm definitely going to rewatch the anime. When I have kids I want my sons to enjoy some good classic shounen
