By now I think you've all seen this definition: Note: A Classic Anime is defined (in this group) as an anime that was created before, or in, the year 2000. An anime may also be dubbed "Classic" if it has already gained such an enormous fame that it will surely be remembered for many years to come.

How would you define classic? Help solve the crunchyroll controversy!

Yes, yes, I should probably add that into the definition of 'Classic' somewhere. Since the manga was finished before hand it's considered a 'Classic' due to the fact that it falls into the 'old' category. I wouldn't yet be able to tell you whether or not it is a 'Classic' by fame or quality level since I myself have not seen this anime. I do believe, if I am correct, that this anime (Fighting Spirit) is also titled: Hajime no Ippo. Here is a video:


Can anyone confirm this for me?

leonidus1989: Thanks for the clarification! I'll add it to the list on the profile! Yeah, I know about wikipedia, it's one of this group's lurking friends, but I just didn't feel like it, lol.

Everyone: Anyway, back to the topic, how do YOU define classic?

For me classic anime is an anime that even when months or years have passed, it will never be forgotten. And it will always stay as long as the world still exist, and it will continue to give people entertainment and excitement.

I define classic, as being very memreable, and you'll never forget it o-o

dragonball z is one i'd never forget btw, because i got hurt so many times reinacting the moves with some boys i used to live it o-o

umm i guess i define it as by something that is actually good, and has a good plot line, and just doesn't repeat alot

a classic: origionally orienated to any type of item or show or wrighting that is over 20 years old. i define it as something that has either been completely origional and has brought excitement to the viewers that look make you look forward to the next episode
(tenchi muyo or universe... tokyo was a dissapointment, gundam wing, card captor sakura, sailor moon exc.).
or animes that use the scary view on realism and put it into a scene that an audiance can believe to have been real at one point and get the guessing( Rurouni kenshin is a perfect example, Hajime no Ippo- the most realistic anime i have ever seen).
and then there is those animes that just latch onto you and you just dont wanna let them go even thought they SCREWED GOHANS CHARACTER OVER AND MADE HIM INTO A PUSSIE! ... sorry i get so mad about that because he was my favorite character ...( Dragon ball, dragonball z befor gt made it into a joke... i dont see why people didnt like the buu saga.i mean yeah it was predictable but still it wasnt bad.)
ok wow lost tran of though ill finish this once i can think straight again...

i considered classics. However, Sailor Moon is. In the form of the first option, animes that were created later then 1994-1995 also a classic: originally orientated to any type of item or show or writing that is over 20 years old. i define it as something that has either been completely original and has brought excitement to the viewers that look make you look forward to the next episode.....

tenchi muyo or universe Tokyo was a disappointment, gundam wing, card captor sakura, sailor moon exc Etc.....

Well, I guess when you read a classic book or watch a classic movie. You just know why it's a classic. The same thing probably works with anime, although I haven't seen very many at all. I think it's something that has a real, noticable value. Something original and you know that nothing can live up to that. I guess unique also.

Normally, I'd deffine classic as retro; 80s or older, but I guess good animes from the 90s that have faded in peoples minds & make them think way back deserve classicdom; this bacly excludes any 90s anime that's been on basic cable since 2000 for me. If it was on an obscure channel, wasn't in english, & wan't in the past 5 years, like Slayers, I can concider it "classic."

This is a good definition. But I would go so far to say that five years isn't old enough. I mean, we are still vibrating with the effects of Sailor Moon and such animes, and they are older then that.
