Both are good, but the differing art styles is interesting


Newer stuff is more colorful. Even with a more subdued color palette, it's still more colorful. This makes dark, mature, grim, etc. shows harder to pull off effectively. It is useful for stuff like Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica, where dark but still bright works perfectly for the juxtaposition though show makes of the genre.

Plus, newer stuff is generally more fluid and detailed with fight scenes, which is understandable given the general evolution of the industry.


But the old stuff still does well. The darker tones help with some stories (obviously not all).
And most of the old anime had a different style of action. Generally slower (both the characters physically and in presentation), guns were used more, and less super powers. See Ghost in the Shell, Cowboy Beepop, and Trigun.

I love modern anime. Older anime had pretty generic plots. Though I'm still waiting for Madhouse to do Yu Yu Hakusho. Nothing wrong with the old one. Just would love to see it with modern animation

A little bit of both. 1995-2005 was a good decade.

I like both to be honest. I can't really decide one over the other as they both had some good and some not so good series. I'm leaning more towards the modern just because the artwork is just a little better and sometimes a little more better story line.
