I'm ashamed to say the the only 80s anime production I've watched was Project A-Ko and it was great.


Well now you've got some great shows to watch from what everyone has been naming! I wish there was a convention for strictly 80's anime. The panels and video rooms would be killer and seeing all the cosplay would be fantastic!

DBZ, Shurato, Guyver, Jushin Liger, and Fist of the North Star were THE shows of the 80's.

Dragon Ball and Gundam are the only ones that come to mind for me.

Last night I found the entirety of Gundam Seed remastered on YouTube. I plan to finally watch Gundam Seed, which came out in 2002. I forgot how horrible Animation in general was during the early 2000s

After watching episodes 1-3 I turned on Episode 1 of Zeta Gundam(1985) named Black Gundam.

That first episode of Zeta Gundam.....is so epic. Its animation mastery, story telling perfection, and the forefather of super robots showing kids how the big kid plays.

Following 1979 Mobile Suit Gundam, the Space Mecha themed robot shows gained massive popularity with additional works all coming out in the early 80s like Macross or Votoms....hut in 85 Gundam came back.

Zeta is just amazing, so much amazing in one series. Seed just looks damn ugly in comparison, and they even stole 90% of its aspects from Original Gundam! I just sat back naming off each copy. Going Char clone here, oh look the white base, that seat where the nerds sit back to back....

Zeta Gundam 1985 is mecha mastery, the reason Gundam is still so big today. Also, transforming Zeta Gundam, only titular gundam to Transform. Doesn't even use core blocks. Transforming was HUGE in the 80s.

This is going on the list of things to find, some of the screen caps look really interesting.


Like goddamn, I'll watch it just to see the landscapes and artsy stuff. XD

I am going to go watch an episode of this Gundam Zeta Gundam Mobile Gundam Suit Gundam thing.

This is one I hold fondly, Gall Force, more awesome girls with big guns ( and more big hair!). The first one (1986) was kind of iffy, but each successive oav gets better, as the story jumps through time but keeps the same characters, who go through different incarnations as does the battle between humans and aliens... the artwork gets better, the music, and Kenichi Sonoda has always been one of my favorite character designers. This series along with Kei & Yuri, and Bubblegum Crisis are my favorites from that decade. They just seem to look better over time, or it's the nostalgia...
