Old animes budgets where enormous compared to todays on.
By the way is this a PvP thread?
The problem with the old ones? Find them, from VHS tape in Blu Ray re-masters... Sometimes is imposible.

It depends really I've watched Old Anime that's been recommended by older fans and keep in mind many of them are looking through nostalgia goggles, everyone owns a pair.

There weren't though. For TV anime the budgets have been floating around the 10 million yen per episode range for a couple of decades now.

In fact thats why there is a bit of a dispute in the industry. Cost of living has been going up but wages haven't been.

People tend to favor old stuff of everything due to the fact that you'll most likely forget something bad. It doesn't matter if it's a movie, game, book or whatever... If you don't like something then you'll forget about it, but if you like something then you'll remember it until you hit the bucket, and I think this is what old time anime fans have a problem with due to the fact that more anime is released today then it's ever been... Witch it turn leads to more bad anime and less good anime, but the good anime will still be out there and that's the sort of anime people will remember.

If you ask someone what anime you remember from 2015 in 10 years, then you won't tell them something you didn't like... Since you'll have forgotten about that, but you will remember the stuff you did like


I see ur point unless it's really awful then I can't forget it but having watched both old and new I think it's like everything else it evolves with time and each generation and we'll always have classics bc like you said we'll always remember the good ones.

To me anime is all the same. We got ones we like we got ones we don't like. If you ask me its all about the story line.

Well just my 2 cents
Older anime seemed more about story telling with the art being secondary
Today anime seems more about the art then the story

yeah some of what I though as well ;P

But I do think some is changed to a more of this genre/type/taste after some time.
like what you had for a budget has changed?
Many more series (since of tech) but is it better?
"Deadlines" has shortend? (less time for story develoment and more)
or in general the whole business, production, goals and what its targed for.
more and less other stuff

You will not allways remember the good ones some is not made for that and is still pretty awesome ;D (but for good classics then yeah most
surely you would remember them)
even bad ones could have some good moments you remember.
Nostalgia :/

When I was a kid, Anime was for adults, now I'm an adult and Anime is for kids. I know that's not 100% accurate, but it seems that way to me.

That's completely true I just agreed it's easier to remember the good ones but ur right even the ones you dislike have good moments as well bittersweet I suppose

Newer anime is now gaining more attention due to being widely more available than it was in the 70s-90s, not to mention it's made with better technology.
A lot of what it its about is that the western nations are now seeing more anime come out then what was released via the video rental store or what was dubbed and thrown on tv.

Kids today with al their art and story stuff, why back in the day everything was in glorius gray scale. Sometimes older ones are fun to watch just to see where there are firsts. Note in this episode of Astro Bay AKA Boy Atom there is what might be the genesis of Speed Racer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEe9d1Iaf0Y
Now get off my lawn!

The 1980s were full of horrid Animator-driven projects where story was barely a consideration.

What us older folks are upset over, truly, is there's a lot of quality stuff that'll go unseen. Like when someone claims there are no good, long form anime, and anyone who's been an Otaku for 10 years will announce LoGH as a reflex. But the newer folks will never watch it, regardless of the legendary status.

What younger folks are upset about is that the older crew seem to be unwilling to put any effort into keeping up with the industry. I've been to many panels hosted by older folks who will openly admit they have not watched a new show in years, and then go on to complain how things are not how they want them to be.

Both sides have legit complaints, but they aren't vocalizing them in a way that lets them be resolved.

As to no/few teenagers in older anime I saw in a previous comment. What about Mazinger Z, Gundam, Touch, Aim for the Ace, KoR, was Kor with teenagers? Yeah, it was Maison Ikkoku that had a college age student. Rumiko Takahashi, teenagers then teenagers now. A lot of this comes down to older folks not putting in effort to keep up, and newer folks ignoring plenty of things that simply don't have fresh 'buzz.' Fear not, the young will become older eventually, and they'll see the generation under them ignoring their classics. In a couple years you'll hear people ignore Madoka and KLK because they're too old.
