Retro Anime & Manga

Password (For file deletion.)


Feel free to delete if this thread is too specific but I think it might be nice to have a thread where anons help each other identify anime that they only hazily remember but still want to watch.I say this might be nice because I'm currently having this very issue. It's a one or two episode Girls with Guns OVA from the 90s, not Gunsmith Cats but sort of like it, maybe a bit more scifi? It had "Uta" in the name. It didn't seem super well known but it looked right up my alley, I jist forgot to write the name down. Any help is much appreciated. Thank you!

>>570That's from Kimagure Orange Road


>>571Thx boss


>>569It's Jayce and The Wheeled Warriors


I'm not even sure these were all part of the same anime but might as well give it a shot.Specifically remember 3 scenes from it:1. Main character (brown haired?) is walking down the street until he comes across a (blue haired?) woman being harassed by a pair of thugs. At first he just watches, but eventually things get rawnchy so he decides to finally act. Suddenly a mysterious power awakens within him, allowing him to beat up the thugs with ease. The woman then approaches him, revealing she's some kind of priest/oracle looking for for a "chosen one" as hailed by a prophecy, and the protagonist seems to fit the bill.2. A quartet of demons (the four horsemen of the apocalypse?) spawn in a city and start to wreck havoc all around. I specifically recall a part in which a female demon enters a train and decimates everything on her path, until suddenly she stops in front of a regular looking businessman and gives him a seductive look before draining his life out and continuing with her rampage.3. An older guy plus some kids are stuck on a facility in an isolated island watching news about the chaos in the city. The older guy comments about how glad he is for being safe on the island, while the kids complain that they're hungry and have no food. The guy suggests they could start a fire and cook their shoes since they're made of horse leather and thus technically edible. The kids get weirded out but he decides to try it out anyway and fails.As a bonus this was probably in spanish, can't remember if it was subbed or dubbed. I've tried skimming over the synopses of shows that aired on channels that I watched as a kid but nothing seemed to match, so for all I know this could have been a local channel airing whatever they got a hold off without actually having a license for it.


>>574Damn no.1 sounds extremely familiar. Off the top of my head it reminded me of a couple of anime none of which fit the description DNA³ or 3x3 eyes


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.

>>561The 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).


>>562The 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


>>557I 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-etGCr7SM4I'm definitely going to rewatch the anime. When I have kids I want my sons to enjoy some good classic shounen






>>553Is Duvet really country?


>>554No but it's the closest thing I could think of.

Hit a huge milestone in my quest to watch every anime opening ever. I finished the 20th Century! I started with only caring about TV openings, but realizing that my experience would neglect classics like "Gunbuster" or "Dirty Pair Project Eden" I expanded it to cover all anime. That means I've checked out everything, TV, OVA, Hentai, Specials, OVAs, and Music Videos (Exceptions would be lost anime or anime not listed in the MAL database.)Along the way, I curated a list of what I consider to be notable anime OPs. I've separated the notably good and the notably bad apart from each other (unremarkable openings are off the list). This list is raw and unorganized (only by year and only at a first impression). I figured you guys might want to see it.Any suggestions of a better way I could present the data would be appreciated.What are your favorite retro anime openings?


Small FAQ:-I define "Anime" as "Japanese animation" so no Korean or Chinese stuff, and I don't care what medium.-I judge anime OPs based on the version IN THE ANIME, I don't just listen to songs. I care about the music and the visuals as a wholistic work.-Notably bad could be good to you, often they are experimental and you may find you like them and I don't. Same goes for some I put under good, they might not work for you.-I don't speak Japanese, so if you do and I missed something you love because of the lyrics, or I have something here that you hate because of the lyrics, sorry, not able to judge based on that.



>>548I like sorting by year, but having the rest of that info could be very useful in my final list!


>>1592some more, why not.Shin cutie honey ophttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lf1O8VYMnloRurouni Kenshin OP 2https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QD6vSnv8KkAHunterxHunter 1999 op 2, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TRs6cMZkQYRose of Versailles ophttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJIeJIqw-J0Ranma : Yappapa Yappapa!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DlT1yI7CSMBubblegum crisis: Hurricane https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=an_0IIRDlc4Dominion Tank Police https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRzqjOyeSNcGS Mikami Ophttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhvWZ5pGPK8I'll probably never watch this, but have to admit the op is good.Escaflowne ophttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4FnAOg6N5c


>>549i think by year is fine, but club the Ops from the same series together. Like all the city hunter Ops together.


Have (you) read his works?

>>540part of the waptv thursday block is Miyuki, which was adachi's first manga to be adapted and feels distinct from his later works due to not being primarily based around sports. you should check it out


In preparation for the first in a series of videos about Adachi, I just watched Nine: The Original. It's interesting seeing an earlier version of the style he's come to be famous for, as most of the core elements were already there. I really enjoyed seeing Katsuya overcome his earlier struggles picking up baseball, even with his prior track experience, and Yukimi showing up halfway through to throw a wrench in Katsuya and Yuri's budding love kept it interesting throughout. The animation is nothing stunning, but the chase sequence with Yukimi reminded me of Take On Me. Definitely worth a watch if you have a spare evening.


I read Touch a year or so ago and really liked it. Haven't seen the anime though, and I plan to read Rough later down this month.


Video's up on Nine!https://youtu.be/ZvjghVlCazw


>>536I loved Touch and H2. I enjoyed Cross Game and Mix, but don't feel that they lived up to the legacy. Probably an unpopular opinion. OP 4 of Touch always hits me RIGHT where it hurts. "Hitoribocchi no duet"... what a name, what an image. https://yewtu.be/watch?v=zLHt0Yo6TZc


Happy Odaiba Day!


Masakazu Katsura


In an interview conducted in conjunction with the event, he talked about his future goals. Writing a sequel to “ZETMAN” in addition to a new manga on the theme of ghost stories, which he says he has recently become more interested in. He has apparently set his sights on remaking “Wingman” and “Video Girl” Katsura said, “Video Girl is difficult, but I have an idea for Wing Man. I would like to draw a continuation of the previous one and give it a modern twist. It is a sequel rather than a reboot. I think it would be more interesting that way,” he said.*Wingman Spoilers here I don't know if there are spoiler tags*The final episode of the 13-volume book depicts the decision of the main character, Kenta, to discard all memories of Wingman in order to save Aoi’s life. Katsura revealed part of his idea: “I think that when Kenta, who has forgotten everything, and Aoi, who remembers everything, meet, a drama is born.
