Have you ever wanted to look back on some animes that you enjoyed when you were a child only to realize that it wasn't as good when you were a kid. I did. I mean when I was ten, sailormoon, dragonball (Z) and esclaflone (I know I spelled that wrong. Were the greatest things ever. Now that I look back the plot wasn't as good as i thought is was, can't blame the animation. Don't get me wrong they paved the way for animes now and set a standard and I still love them. It is just that they really wasn't as good as I thought they were. Drangon ball dialouge is really childish as is Sailor moon. I just wanted to see if any one else had this dilema. I still love those series though, just so you know.


Yeah, I also think they seem childish. And its funny, because those anime i thought about is the same as yours: sailormoon and escaflowne. We have become older, and I dont think we like watching anime with the same themes anymore: ex. girlpower.
Sailor moon was the first serie I ever saw, and it really touched me. sailormoon as a figure, but today i still like her figure, but i dont feel the same excitement when she saves someone..
Just to defend sailor moon I can say, I rewatched the whole serie last year, because I didnt know what anime were when I was little. and by coincedence i found it on youtube, and had to watch every episode and movie again. That was really good cool, but I have seen many series since then and would probably never rewatch the whole serie again. its to long. But some of the episodes i can watch on and on again.

But they can be wery entertaining thoug.. I rewatched escaflowne during my exams. I really enjoyed it.

I re-watch them too recently and I was like man, did I not really care for plot, especially considering now I am such a plot snob. Sailormoon was soooooooooo predictable and Drangonball (Z) had to much talking and the moves weren't as great as they were when I was ten. I couldn't finish esclaflowne and I like that one the most when I was a kid. I still love them and they hold a special place in my heart but, yeah waht you said I don't think I would watch them again.

Oh yes, yes, yes Especially Pokemon and Beyblade. I used to collect loads of Pokemon cards and had a load of those Beyblades where you get the that plastic bowl with it (the arena). And I actually saw an episode of Beyblade yesterday when I was flicking through the channels and I thought to myself,

'Oh my god... this is really shit... '

Samurai Pizza Cats!!!!! It was dubbed and i used to wake up really early to watch it! Since then ive been nostalgic with it until a couple months ago when i decided to watch it again! They all had such annoying accents and all the jokes were so corny! I didn't even survive the whole first episode...

haha, yea, that's very true I used to love Gundam Wing, Dragon Ball Z and Escaflowne... but now I just see them as stepping stones to great anime now. (they're great too, just not as high quality in comparison)
