Mostly cause there is more comedy anime now then there was back then (which was dominated by mecha and fighting anime).
And most of the older comedy is cheesy and outdated.

Since we are talking about older anime, why are there so many Bronies hyped for Sailor Moon? It was crap back then, and its crap now.


Nostalgia.

I would be exited if they announced a new season of DBZ, even though it's not a great series.


Yea, but watching a show for middle school girls about middle school girls goes beyond nostalgia though, doesn't?
(Although I don't get why so many guys are into magic garment girls; even though they aren't the intended viewing audience.)

I actually quite enjoyed the Animation and some art styles. The sound tho, turns me off too much.

I think a lot of people react poorly to older anime simply because there is little to no distribution of older titles, where as now, the market is saturated with current titles with multiple streaming services. Even as a niche market stateside, anime has grown quite a bit in the last decade. It cannot be helped that there was little to no commercial interest or viability in anime back in the day. Legend of Galactic Heroes only had one fansub group touch it. There are a lot of titles that were popular in Japan that never came this way. It took JoJo decades to become relevant stateside, when it was a substantially better title than Dragon Ball Z. There were a lot of great Jump titles that suffered this predicament, like Hokuto no Ken, Saint Seiya, Kinnikuman, Dragon Quest, Ashita no Joe, etc. (I would mention Boy, but I don't think a manga about yankees would ever make it stateside).

I could see how some younger people might not take well to older animation, since cell animation is no more. I prefer the look of paint, since computer animation software makes things look too exact. I think art and beauty lie in imperfections and the struggle against it.

A lot of the new anime are too formulaic for my tastes, being an old man that's seen too much and all. I wouldn't be hurt missing out on new titles. Leave me with Zeta Gundam, Kimagure Orange Road, Touch, and Jarinko Chie and I'd be just fine.

Well, I personally prefer new anime to old.

Meaning the late 90's to today.


Though there are some old anime I really love.


DBZ IN PARTICULAR!!!


Why are people or bronies hyping Sailor Moon???



Cause it was awesome when it came out???

The thing I like of old shows is the fact that they are more detailed than many shows now. The very fact that I can clearly see characters drawn to have a nose in almost any perspective pretty much proves it (a dot for a nose barely counts, though I love it during transitions when a character turns or the perspective switches around [there's her nose!]). I'm joking (mostly).

I think anime is about the same, really. There were always good and bad shows - there are just much more being produced now that we can be overexposed to either. I will admit, without listing title(s?), that some greats were probably only great because there wasn't much to compare it with back then.

Damn, you really love that show, don't you? You always mention it.

It deserves to be oft mentioned.

I will say it isn't a series for those that expect to be wowed in the first 1-3 episodes or they are out.

Sadly, there is no legal stream for this series. It is the DVDs or the dark side.

There are also the Blu-rays, which are split into three parts at around $35 each. I was planning on getting them... sometime down the road...

I must admit, I was around 9 or 10 or something like that when Sailor Moon was airing in the US. I actually would say it was my favorite anime airing at that time. I liked watching it more than DBZ. I think it was primarily because of the drama. Like Tuxedo Mask getting mind controlled by Queen Beryl and fighting against Sailor Moon and the others. I really don't know how I would react to this stuff today.

I did also watch the Sailor Moon Live Action series when that came out, that show was kind of stupid but I thought the girls were really cute so I watched it lol. Kitagawa Keiko as Mars was my favorite. They are about the same age as me btw give or take a year or two, so It isn't as creepy as it sounds.

I enjoy anime from all time periods. If the show itself is good, the animation doesn't matter to me. Though I will admit I don't get the hype behind some shows. I know, as some people have mentioned in this thread, that Sailor Moon is held in quite high regards but I just don't see it. It's just another magical girly thing to me, but there you go. In essence there will always be good and bad stuff no matter the era. Music, games, anime, it doesn't matter. It's kind of why I dislike when people say 'only the old stuff was good, the new stuff is shit'. No, you just have to look around and find the good stuff. The very best old stuff is well known and as such can be compiled into collections so it's easy to find, and all the crap is filtered out. With modern stuff we haven't had as much time to do that yet, just don't look at mainstream stuff as representative of what's released these days. Have I said 'stuff' enough yet? Probably.

I have recently been watching some old anime. Like 80's-90's stuff. Despite being able to find a lot of animation and plot flaws in these animes, for some reason I enjoyed them extremely, like marathon-worthy extremely. I am specifically talking about Trigun (late 90's), Record of Lodoss Wars (early 90's), and Legend of the Galactic Heroes (late 80's to late 90's).

When watching these animes there was something 'different' that these animes share that I don't especially see in a lot of today's animes. After thinking about what it was for a while, I finally noticed during an episode of Record of Lodoss Wars. These animes are a lot more atmospheric than today's animes. I have noticed their direction seems to draw you more into the setting, where as a lot of today's animes (there are exceptions, mostly slice of life stuff) are actually extremely dialogue focused in comparison.

I kind of created this thread to see what other people's opinions are on this matter. More specifically on how anime has changed. Because as far as I remember anime was still quite atmospheric as late as the early 2000's with Vandread and Gundam Seed, but more recent works seem to lack that atmospheric quality, and I am not 100% sure as to what exactly they are doing wrong in that aspect.




.......Ouch.

"Old anime" I would consider things from the pre-Astro Boy era: things from around the 1920s.
