Whats your opinion with the anime shows that you've grown up with and the new ones you currently watch?

An example I guess would be the old days where Outlaw Star, Pokemon(First seasons) , Rurouni Kenshin, ect used to premiere on TV, and the new and/or current anime like Naruto, One Piece, etc.

New: focus so much in character design
Old: focus more in the plot and story

Old: There are values learned.
New: But then again who cares..

The story and pure passion behind old school anime is far stronger.
Sure the newer animes look pretty, but basing everything on looks alone a weak.
There are very few newer animes in which have some serious depth.
I've found that those that do "sometimes" get passed by unnoticed.

'most of the older anime have better story lines, Better plots, and more deeper character. (some even have better background art.)

Today's anime is more fast pace, shallow, but with better animation and affects do to computers.

So I must say I like the classics more than the new anime.

If you want better plot, look for the underrated shows, top rated shows are usually nothing but hype and just focus on; 1. Male lead character of the age 13-17, 2. Male lead stumbles upon random Girl who falls in love with him, 3. Male lead encounters other girls that are considered obstacles in his relationship. I like to call this the "No risk easy money off fan service" plan of action, you get a large fan base and make lots of money on the side, who could deny such a deal?

'That is why I have yet to rate a mainstream anime over a 2 out of 5 in the last 10 years.'

I can list so many anime that did not get there time in the sun yet are 100 times better than what you get from the mainstream crap.

My mistake.. I did rate Welcome to the NHK a 3.5/5 and Genshiken a 3.5/5 as well.

Laputa: Castle in the Sky was made in 1986. I saw it for the first time around 2003, and thought it was quite good. So I watched it again just a couple days ago... still rather enjoyable.

Haven't been following many anime series from the last few years. The last shows I watched on my own were probably Astro Fighter Sunred and Detroit Metal City, both of which were rather good absurd comedies. Thanks to my local anime club, I was encouraged to watch Summer Wars and Bakemonogatari -- I enjoyed both.

There were a lot of shows which I watched in the late 90s that I really loved at the time. I'm planning to watch the following series again, if just to see if I like them after all these years...

* The first seven El-Hazard OAVs
* Otaku no Video OAVs
* Magic Users Club OAVs

I became an anime fanboy partly due to the Ranma 1/2 TV series. It's not bad, though I prefer the original manga.

old animes might not have a good artwork but they have astounding plot and they were really interesting. well, it's just like the new ones but the ol ones were better for me. the new animes right now were just like.... hmm, how should I say this... maybe they don't have originality and they just adapted the stories to the old ones, yet only improved the drawings and fo course, changed the characters.
how I missed the old ones like rurouni kenshin, shaman king, hunter x hunter and especially ranma 1/2... err, shoul I include naruto? I've been watching it since I was 5 or 6 and until now it's still ongoing O-o
