Ah, the sweet smell of nostalgia! Granted, there are some stinkers on there (Big Wars really isn't all that great, nymphomania aside), but at least it's all hand-drawn. Really takes me back.

Gunnm/Battle Angel, 2 OVAs in 1993. Bought them... still love them and wish more anime was made of this, considering there are like 27 volumes of manga now!

Hmm, what do we count as 1993 anime I wonder?

I bought the Angel Cop OVA series. 6 episodes, '89-'94, does that count?

Before there was Casshern:Sins there was Casshern: Robot Hunter, 4 OVAs, August 1993 to February 1994, surely that counts. Bought those too.

New Dominion Tank Police, 6 OVAs, October 93 to October 94. Bought those too...
http://myanimelist.net/anime/1152/New_Dominion_Tank_Police

Still own all those on VHS and my VCR still works too!

Giant Robo: The Day The Earth Stood Still, 92 to 98, 7 OVAs...

You think waiting a year or two for the next season is bad, trying waiting months or even a year for the next OVA episode... that was fun... not!

I can't believe I somehow missed New Dominion Tank Police on that list. I'll add it to the first post.

But yeah those other examples that you had posted had some classics and a notorious turkey and were basically ongoing at that point.

EDIT: Hulu link for New Dominion Tank Police just in case(Availability is U.S only)

Both the Gunnm OVAs came out in 1993, but before the fall so perhaps you count them as 1992 anime.

@ hpulley, Gunnm would basically have been a Summer 1993 anime(premiered June 21 and ended in August).

I guess that could see a revivial of interest if James Cameron ever does his live-action Battle Angel Alita .

I find this true for all entertainment (books, movies, TV, music, and anime). There are plenty of things I've gone back to partake of 15-20 years later and found that they were not as good as I remember. There are a few that stand the test of time, but most turn out to be just OK at best.
IMO, a classic is something that you or just about anyone else can come back to15+ years after it came out and it still be considered good. There is a reason that there are only two or three titles that people recognize on this list. They are the classics.


People are going to find a reason to like an anime more than another... Doesn't matter if other people don't know about it, not everyone recognizes the same anime as a classic.


yeah some older anime is genuinely enjoyable and not so in much in the sense that it's a classic.. more so that people haven't essentially changed since then even if general trends, styles, and technology has.

You should send the raw anime to subbers or something or else this is just a waste of time.

I was only three years old in 1993. I haven't heard of some until years later.

The Fall season of 1993 just happened to be the first "offical" season that I lived in (I was born during the middle of the previous season)
