I will try to watch Champion Joe because it looks cool and has a good op ...I'll grin and bear the old graphics....


Dragonball only really looks like its held up because it's been on continuous play since the 90's. I cannot think of a time it HASN'T been off the air completely.

That's partially due to Thomas Jefferson being a Piccolo fan and demanding that the constitution state its continual play as a symbol of the enduring nature of this union. Hell, King Richard was a fan of it when it first aired during the Crusades...

maybe I should stop... :P

I watch old anime series sometimes like marmalade boy. i think most classic anime are the best
some of its theme has a nice storyline/plot better than those new ones that are just not good as the classic anime.

guess it depends what youre looking for

i honestly cant get absorbed into an anime off art alone. characters and plot are mostly what i'm after. chances are if it's a well written anime you get used to the art whatever it is

i'm not really big on action though. can definitely see why it might matter a lot for certain genres, though even then, i do think the writing is key to an enjoyable watch

One of my favorite animes, Legend of the Galactic Heroes. Started in the late 80's ended in I think 2000-ish.
I especially love that character Oberstein. His thing was that where most of the country was run by soldiers who valued honor and pride, Oberstein pretty much ignored both in favor of a more practical and logical approach. Basically he always gave the right answer, but most of the time it's not the one everyone liked.

I honestly have never had any trouble watching older anime, because I've never been the type to judge based on aesthetics alone when it comes to anime and manga and thought it was just ridiculous to not bother with any anime pre-00's because of the typical "lol dey hav bad gfx" excuse.

But honestly there's still tons of anime in this day and age with pretty lame animation and overuse of CGI and whatnot. A lot of anime in the 80's-90's were actually pretty detailed art wise with lots of shading and definition on characters' faces of course there were QUALITY moments but still, older anime isn't THAT bad.

besides the original sailor moon, no... I can't stand old anime graphics. same goes for video games. I can't play any games that are on ps2 or older; it's blurry etc.

Love watching old anime, I have a VHS collection of it!

BTW: Old does NOT equal outdated

The graphics may be a different style, but some older anime have BETTER graphics than today in that the attention to detail in the DRAWINGS (not CGI) can be breathtaking

Example: Look at the stunning detail in the opening scene of Macross: Do You Remember Love. Look at every little light/antenna on the ship...its breathtaking! (And not CGI symmetrical computer looking designed)

What do you mean old... 90's ?

I watched Yu Yu Hakushu ...and I love it,

Slam Dunk .. it had great graphics for that era, excellent basketball or sports anime.

My generation originally came up with the idea of an 8 bit system when we dicovered how to bake clay in the hot mesopotamian sun and make bricks out of them. Tetris was a bitch to play, and the egyptians were really good at it. I mean what did you think the pyramids were!?!?!??!

Honestly. PS2 had bad graphics? You don't remember the atari game system with it's joystick and ONE BUTTON. No fucking joke.
you had to punch, kick, and duck with a combination of directionals and that ONE BUTTON. And the high quality graphics looked like this:


god I feel so damned old.. >.<

I agree that old doesn't mean outdated, but many shows back in the day had scenes with amazing details followed by ones when the characters didn't have faces.I can tell the difference between style and quality/fluidity issues for the most part. I understand that everything was done by hand and one has to admire their talent. BTW, I have/had an old VHS collection, but they don't play very well now. Some from watching too much .

I've never given a crap about how something looks. I will never understand why people do. Story is the most important thing. That's why I'm watching something not because it looks great. As others have said there is a beauty to the older stuff because it's hand drawn. Something was left behind with the switch from hand drawn to computers.

lol.. dominion tank police. It was I think based somehow on the works of Masamune Shirow, who also did appleseed and ghost in the shell...

So kids these days problably think it's this ultra cyberpunk dystopian future anime...
