so, like the very first anime i ever watched was gunsmith cats way back in 1997 or something like that. some weird cartoon my cousin brought over called, 'anime'.
the other day i watched it again and found out sprisingly enough that it was still very good.

anyone else want to add to the list of anime that has aged well?

For me, it'd be Maison Ikkoku. Yeah, it's 80's, but the story is solid and it could happen today just as easily as it could have then.

YuYu Hakusho still looks great, even after 20 years.

I just finished Vandread recently, and Scooby is right that it is still pretty good.

Please Teacher (2002) is still one of my favorites; just re-watched it a couple months ago, and it holds up very well.

The original Ghost in the Shell movie (1990) is just awesome.

For some reason I think Trigun still looks pretty good, but I have a very strong prescription of nostalgia glasses for that one.

Other than the two in the below quote, I haven't really seen that many old (pre-2000) anime. Most of BONES's stuff from the mid 2000s still looks extremely good nowadays like Fullmetal Alchemist, Eureka 7, and Darker than Black. Basilisk also still looks very good. The same with Ergo Proxy as it doesn't even look like it's from 2006 nor from the same studio that did The World God Only Knows.

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex also stands out given it's from 2002.

I agree with the first two, but I haven't seen Akira so I couldn't say on that.

The one in my avatar *points left* Riding Bean. It even has a very different take on a young Rally Vincent from Gunsmith Cars (which Nemoskull mentioned above).





Same creator, different looks. Riding Bean first and Gunsmith Cats second.

When Toei jumped on the streaming bandwagon, they distributed their "core" classics Captain Harlock, Fist of the North Star, and Galaxy Express 999 EVERYWHERE they could get a streaming-license buck for it. (Which includes CR.)
And judging from some of the discussions from the new kids when GE999 first reappeared...it's still as teasing, stylized and addictive, even for a melodramatically silly Matsumoto anime from 1979.

Viz's Ranma 1/2 seems to have held up well in its reissue, and....insert discussions of why Sailor Moon Crystal is a threadbare insult to Viz's new dub of the 90's series, here.

I was thinking about this thread some more Question: when does another studio buy the rights and then over hall the anime with better graphics like they do in Hollywood? Or maybe doesn't happen but I guess I wouldn't mind if good story and original gets credit
