....was anime made differently back then, was the anime made with more care, or is it that the animes of those days had something special that they dont have now...or because we watched it in our childhood that its made the anime memorable...

IMO, it all comes down to originality and creativity. That's the hallmark of making any anime series memorable, a true classic that will withstood the tides of time.

It most likely because there more original, more focused towards the plot, and don't focus too much on pointless fanservice.

I don't know if I agree with the premise of this. I do agree that classics are classics. But what I would consider a classic is different from what other people would consider classic. I think it has to do with how much of an impression it makes on you at an impressionable point in your life.

I mean simply, when you are younger, it is easier to make a lasting impression. It appears that every otaku age group has their classics.

I mean if you look backwards...



Naruto (now)
Inuyasha (early 2000s)
Pokemon (Late 1990s)
Sailormoon (Mid 1990s)
Ranma 1/2 (Late 1980s-Early 1990s)
Transformers/Voltron/Thundercats (Mid to late 1980s)
Robotech (Early to mid 1980s)
Force 5 (Gaiking, Danguard Ace, Spaceketeers, Grandizer, Starvengers) (Early 1980s)
Starblazers (Late 1970s-early 1980s)

Don't forget your DBZ, Yu-gi-oh, Gundam, and all the others out there...

All of these have been considered memorable classics by the groups of fans growing up with them. These are just the series that were on at the time when people were at an impressionable age. I'm guessing that age is really anywhere between 4 and 18. Before age four, it probably doesn't have a lasting effect, and after 18 most people are jaded enough to not be as affected. Now, of course, everyone is different.... some may only really be impressionable from 4-12, others may not really pick up till ages 8-16... the point is that these are the ages when people latch on to something, and make it their own 'classic.'

True to my argument, I will tell you that I'm now 32... which means my impressionable years ended long ago. That doesn't mean that the anime has changed in quality - I have changed in how I look at it. I can certainly see how some people can see Inuyasha to be a classic for them - or Naruto. They aren't classics for me, but if I was in that age range it's possible that they would be.

The quality and style of art has changed and evolved... the plotlines have evolved as well. The target audience has evolved.

This is only my theory, as everyone is different... I love older animes. They are my classics - and I think maybe the younger crowd may be missing out on some great stories by abandoning the old 'classics'

A classic is a classic - no matter the vintage.
