if you have only time to watch either new or old anime, are you going to watch new anime first like the one airing every week or old finished anime?

Probably the old & finished it isn't that I prefer older anime I think old and new anime are better than each other in different ways, however I can't stand waiting a week for an episode of Hunter X Hunter or any other weekly series as I have a bad tendency to rush through an anime if I really like it then before I've realised it I'm up to the most recent episode of the series.

I tend to watch the new and save the old for later. I am not certain that is the wisest course of action, since new stuff is almost always coming out... LOL

I just started watching a couple of months ago, so I have been mostly watching and finishing older shows that I have heard are good. I find it easier to marathon finished shows too. I still watch some currently airing shows, but for the most part I'm trying to catch up and watch finished shows.

Old, hands down. The older animes have better plots, better stories, better characters and characterization for the most part. Those were the days when personality depended on something more than how "moe" or "kawaii" or "Tsundere", or even "Loli" you were.

New animes may have better animation/art, but they lack in pretty much everything else for the most part. Sure, there are some truly superb new anime like Puella Magi Madoka Magica - but its so rare to come across one that leaves a lasting impression and that would surely become a classic either in the present or future.

Its very rare to come across a new anime that will be remembered the way an older one can.

You can take any season of an older anime year and compare it to any season of newer anime - chances are, the older season will have the better, more memorable anime.

Just look at the sheer number of older anime classics. People still talk about them to this day, and they are still well known, with much remembered and beloved characters.

Not many of today's anime can do that. Majority of today's newer anime might be popular and bubble up for a season or so, but soon enough will fade away into the distance, not remembered, and not a classic.

I dont really agree with this at all. Old shows dont have innately better anything than new shows. Now, you may have the benefit of picking out the good shows from a pool of like 30 years, but there was plenty of unremembered crap too. Its just not really fair to judge an individual season or year of anime with a group of the best of all time.

new. I think it's easier to watch anime by episode on the air date than it is to catch up on backlogged episodes.

and anyone who things old anime is somehow better than newer anime for one reason or another is just a hipster.

You don't have to agree. Its not your opinion, but mine.

Of course there was a lot of unremembered crap - obviously not every older anime was better than newer ones. But even in saying that, the majority were in my opinion. And this goes for any season.

Old/older, because I don't like twiddling my thumbs and having to wait for episodes to be aired. Besides, it's not often that I'm in the mood to watch anime, anyway.

I kinda think this was directed at me after my post so...

In my opinion, a lot of Hipsters (to me) try really hard to BE Hipsters - as in, they purposely like things that are older/Indie/not mainstream/popular. I find that an odd contradiction since it seems that Hipsters don't want to be labeled....But here they are purposely trying not be mainstream and therefore purposely becoming "Hipster".

Anyway...I'm not purposely liking older anime. Its just that I have noticed that I almost always tend to prefer an older show over a newer one.

That's not being Hipster. That's just liking what you like, regardless.

Are there people who like older anime/new anime on purpose? Of course. But I personally am not one of those people. I just like what I happen to like, and I noted where my personal preferences seem to run.

How old are we talk'n here. Because I would watch anime that was before this ultra-fanservice era we are currently in. Sure they are a few these days that don't do it but there are way more anime with huge jiggly boobs than there have been before

I would probably watch the new ones; I can't stand falling behind on an ongoing series, but if a series is already long finished, I feel like I can take my time watching it.
