"Is older anime really good?"

Uh lol yes. There were good shows and bad shows, just like there are now. How is this a legitimate question.

That this question was asked nearly a year ago notwithstanding; of course people ask that kind of stuff. They will always ask it. Five years from now a newly hip 18 year old will join this website and ask with utter surprise- "was there really anime before 2015?" and "was it any good"? Some people grow up thinking that only the newest latest thing is acceptable and they only look at what their peers are looking at. It's a shame but there's nothing we can do about it.

It evades me how people can recognize film and music from decades ago as being good but can't also relate that idea to other media.

I know what you mean. I was born in the 80s but I still take the time to give older things a chance. I am into literature, and it is not seen as weird or strange to like a book that was written hundreds of years before you were born. Also as a kid I watched a lot of very old TV shows and movies that were made many years before I was born, after I got into anime I took the time to look into older shows. To me it is strange that people refuse to give older things a chance, it is just as bad when older people refuse to give new things a chance. But granted that happens less often, but it happens. I just think that it is immature to be dismissive of things before you try them for yourself. Sure you might not like some old anime, but a lot of if is good and they are missing out by not trying it.

I love 90s anime, but I'll have to look at these titles.
