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.


I would call that Pre-Historic Anime, since most people who saw it back then are with the dinosaurs.

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???


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.







Heh heh, when I heard Sailor Moon was gonna be live action, I thought that's actually kinda cool!


They should one for DBZ! Oh wait, never mind...

I am pretty sure Japan didn't really start to do animation until after WWII. 1920's was Walt Disney's era.

I have been meaning to watch older anime (somewhere from the late 1970's-the early 90's). I won't care if the dialogue is cheesy or not. (I like cheesy stuff anyways).

I prefer 90's to today than prior to the 90's. I am not used to the old art style(i think it's kind of odd). I guess it just happens that way.

Usually I like an anime for what it is, not necessarily for when it came out. Although, I have to admit, I also find some of the older art styles a bit weird. Overall, I guess I like anything from the 90s on.

When I was a kid, I liked DBZ and Sailor Moon pretty equally, along with some other things. But when I went back and watched Sailor Moon subbed when I was older, I realized they left out/changed a lot of things in the dub, and I picked up on themes I didn't see before. Also, Sailor Stars was fantastic and one of my favorite seasons.
