Hello everybody today I present you with another question. That question is


Which Do You Prefer? Older Anime Or Newer Ones? And Why? Older anime goes back from the 90's and before. While the newer ones can start from any that was made in the 21st century


My answer is older anime of course. Colors may not be as bright but that annimation itself was still on point. The stories and characters are way more enjoyable to watch and have less annoying characters in comparison to lovable ones. I feel as though they aren't made like they use to be


I mean what skinny pansy today could stand up to this legend?

Prpobably should have made this into a poll but oh well

Your thoughts.

The farther back I go the harder it is for me to take the art seriously.

Although, the more anime I watch the more curious I get about how it's changed over the years.

So I'm likely to pick up more older series as I go just to sate my curiosity.

most of the anime I've watched is from late 90's and newer. I just can't get into an anime with an ugly art style, which is unfortunately how most older anime are.

I don't really care about which year it was made, as long as it has a good story and stuff.
I'm currently watching Prince of Tennis, which aired in 2001 to 2005. The TV format is 4:3, which is the only bad thing about it.

I have no idea what the oldest anime I've completed is.
But I have watched 7 episodes of Slam Dunk, and if I remember correctly, it's from the 90s. The art quality and such isn't the reason why I haven't continued, I just thought it was too damn boring to watch that retard trying to learn basketball

The hilarious thing is this is my girlfriend's exact mind track on the topic. She says as soon as she doesn't like the way it looks she ain't watching it. Even newer shows such as Madoka Magica and Gunslinger girl has gone into the not giving it a chance bin because of the animation.

But when I look at Saint Seiya Omega compared to the original I think "Ehhh what's this Sailor Moon?"

kinda off topic (maybe)? it seems as if old animes were more conservative than newer animes. but at the same time, tackled difficult subjects and depicted realism more efficiently.

e.g. koi kaze

I dislike this conversation. Personally I've found that everyone who goes on about how older anime is better only watch the classics. If you are only watching the classics from over a 30 year time period and then comparing it to the current season, you are going to get massively skewed results. Once you start looking at the average anime per season, the only real difference between now and then is quantity(and most of the increase in quantity is taken up in otaku wish fulfilment shows, which makes the modern anime culture look even worse)

Good point good sir. But in my opinion older is just better period. Don't get in me wrong there are those few awesome anime that comes out here and there. Attack On Titan for example but I think old beats new in almost all genres. I think Marmalaid Boy was a very good romance show and I would rather watch Cutie Honey for the sweet fanservice. Plus all the awesome original movies came out back than such as Akira and Grave Of The Fireflies etc.

the plot and storyboard in old animes are much more apparent and out in the open, where as new anime are more masked by superficial "stuff"

stuff is to your imagination

I've enjoyed watching the rapid evolution of animation over the last decade but must admit I get nostalgic over anime from the late 90's and early 00's.

Newer ones, I can't stand the art style of the earlier ones. They look bland dull and washed out. No color. Plus, it's all low resolution, I have a hard time sticking to anything unless I can watch it in beautiful eye candy 1080p.

Nails it!

The art work is awesome, the story, and ithe first time you hear Ai Oboete Imasu Ka sung, it is just breathtaking!

But Macross shows how both old and new generation both have good points

All the way from Macross SDF & DYRL to Macross Frontier
