both they are the same fucking thing jeez whats up with our community and saying modern anime sucks they are just as amazing they were so many shit animes in the 90s like seriously a lot of them are forgettable and for now there are 30 animes of the top of my head probably more that came out in 2010 and they are incredible and the only animes in the old days that are memorable is the 1997-1999 ones but the ones before that were forgettable. there are may animes with brilliant plot and characters like psycho pass, parasyte, ajin, tatami galaxy, steins gates, madoka magica, anohana, your lie in april, fate/zero, attack on titans, ping pong the animation, death parade, opm, haikyuu, kuroko no basket, and many more and so is the old days so who cares. Anime is not getting worse like most people say and its not getting better like some people say.

I don't enjoy one more than the other. I started watching in the mid-90's and fell in love with a ton great movies and shows. I also saw a bunch of crap too. I do love the 80's & 90's look.

I think most anime that came out in the early/mid 2000's were crap. I can't think of too many during that time that I liked which ultimately lead me to drop anime for over a decade. I also didn't care for the look and style that was going around. Everything looked bland and uninspired.

But in the last 6 years I've run across a lot of great shows that helped get me back into anime.

As long as I can enjoy a show, I don't really care when it was made. I have watched a lot more newer anime simply because that is what is more available to me and people usually talk about newer anime rather than older anime. However, I have heard of some very good old ones, and I would like to get around to them sometime.

I have always had an appreciation for great animation though a great story helps too. ^ ^

I was born in the 90's so I didn't get to appreciate the earlier forms of animation that they had to offer until much later. By the time I discovered anime, the colors and art form had changed drastically. It is hard to compare old forms with new, and this is the same with anything. Some people have a preference and some enjoy both.

Personally, I am slow to find new/old anime to watch, as I find myself rewatching shows that I hold dear to me. Still, I love Inuyasha and I love FMA Brotherhood. Both very different art styles but fun and exciting to watch.

Look at my list, I haven't seen that many pre 90s anime, but I haven't been amazed by anything older than the late 90s, unless you count jojos. Rose of Versailles being my top anime before that

I first became an anime fan sometime between 2006 - 2007. I knew mostly anime from 2006 and older and was interested in watching even the ones from 1960s - 1990s. However, it is difficult to find most of those older anime online so I unfortunately never got to watch any of them that I was interested in just from seeing clips on YouTube or reading about them on Wikipedia. I could only watch the ones from the 1990s to the 2000s since those were the ones I could find the most. I have and still am interested in seeing some of these older anime series, but only if they're available in its entirety.

As for any newer anime especially 2010 to now, I haven't really watched much of the newer anime series. I have seen clips and some episodes and even watched some of the ones that have come out in the last 7 years. There has been some good anime with good action and good animation which drew me to them and made me want to watch them. But, since I am an adult after all now (almost 30 ;-;) and I do have real life stuff to deal with, I can't always find time to watch them. This is one of the reasons why I'm just a casual fan, and I have been since about 2009 - 2010.

I guess what I'm saying is, I respect and enjoy BOTH newer and older anime. I try to find ones with good animation and good stories that make me want to enjoy watching them a lot. There are many older and newer anime that I dislike or have no interest in at all. I respect those who enjoy those anime series, as long as they respect me for not being a fan of those series.

Anyway, enough rambling from me. Sorry for the long post.

I like the experimentation in old anime. There was some real devotion there. New anime does have some gems, but all too often we see a dead horse being beaten.

I don't really care, I like newer anime more though. The oldest ones I've watched are Evangelion, and Zipang. (if that counts)

Hmm, I like a lot of the anime from the late 90s and pretty much anything prior to 2010. There seems to be a real lack of decent space westerns, sci-fi, etc.

I'm looking at my anime DVD collection and pretty much everything I have came out 7-20 years ago. Lately, I've been dropping one simulcast after another due to boredom and instead picking up and marathoning stuff that came out years ago. It can't be nostalgia since I didn't really watch anime until a few years ago. Idk, there is definitely something I prefer from that era, but can't put my finger on exactly what it is.

Of course there are exceptions though, currently hooked on Psycho Pass

There's definitely been an increase of Harems, Useless Male Leads, and Over the Top Fan-Service.

I miss the cool battles, cool protagonists, and powerful villains.

Fan-service is probably as old as anime itself, believe it or not.
Harems too.
Useless leads not so much.

Yeah I know. I'm talking about the over the top stuff. I still say that the sheer number of harems has increased. Especially in manga.

I think we just miss the freedom producers had back in the OVA days, because that's what was primarily marketed in the US. But the rise of Pokemon allowed execs to see the potential in marketing anime towards kids. Which was okay because it took the negative light off of anime but felt like a betrayal to those who helped import it in the first place. But to say neither side made/makes good anime is simply false. The number of animes were exposed to has increased but the percentage of good anime hasn't changed.
