The unfortunate effect of having an old school room, is that it tends to be a dark barren room, that is frigid cold cause the AC is on high and no one is in it.  (Well, maybe 1-2 people will show up)

The other half is that most of the old school stuff is probably licensed, so Fanime would have to show their versions of the series.
And if it dubbed or edited, even fewer people would probably show up.

If Fanime does man up and make an old school room, I'll show. As long as they actually include in huge effin' letters that they actually have one, I'm there.

Princess Knight
That was an anime too?  I'd love to see that!  I'd be interested in sampling some of the really ancient stuff that nobody's ever heard of before, like "Sora Tobu Yuureisen", "Jarinko Chie", "Sero Hiki no Goushu", "Periinu Monogatari", "Mirai Shounen Konan", "Esteban", "Romio no Aoi Sora", "Haha wo Tazunete Sanzenri", etc.  For the TV series, probably only one episode is enough, but it'd be great to have a sample.

I'm sorry, Gundam Wing is not old school. UC Gundam is old school, along with Gatchaman, Tekkaman, Cutey Honey, Macross, Akira, Project A-Ko, Lum, Ranma 1/2, Urusei Yatsura, Memories, Saint Seiya, Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z, Sailor Moon is borderline old school
I don't think Dragon Ball or Sailor Moon should count as old school either.  Anything that played on a major US TV station after 1990 should be disqualified from being called "old school".



Dragon ball and Sailor Moon, when dubbed, are not old school. However, given how little the subs are showcased publicly due to the sheer size of the fansubbing community behind those shows, and the slow but sure disappearance of interest from those shows (as noted by how many cosplayers you see anymore of those shows) showcases a serious case for them being old school.

Seriously, remember when the joke "Maximum Sailor Moon Cosplayers only to a hundred" made sense?


Dragon ball is old school but still it was made 1986 not DBZ

old school room would be awesome!

my suggests (trying to keep them ones not yet said):

future police urashiman (this show is dope! think a bad ben stiller and owen wilson comedy with time travel), captain harlock, galaxy express 999, 8 man, kimba the white lion, any old masterpiece theatre anime (Romio no Aoi Sora is one that someone has posted earlier, that one is probably my favorite of the masterpiece theatre anime).

3x3 eyes (while i really like it) came out in 1991 I think, 2 years after DBZ (1989). 

It seems to me that the "cut-off" so to speak should be Dragon Ball Z 1989; any anime produced post DBZ (i.e. all 90s anime and later) should be considered "new school."

I'd rather like to call older anime series "classics" rather than "old school". I'm still big fans of titles like Ranma 1/2, Slayers, and Saber Marionette.

Ah. Those were the days. They don't make them like they used to anymore.

I think they're different sets.  Not all "old school" anime are "classics", and people throw around terms like "instant classic", so not all classics are "old school".

Hey, I'd come. :)

And y'all may boo me for this, but what about Voltron?  The original, not the crazy spin-offs.

You only get a boo because you called it "Voltron" instead of "GoLion".  I'd so totally be up for GoLion!  I don't think Fanime can show it, though, because I think it's going to be released on R1 the day right after Fanime is over.  Although Media Blaster has a dealers room thing, so maybe they'll surprise us with a sneak peek?  That would totally rock!

I think that's enough for this year.  The video schedule has already been posted (the otaku god said so on http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/topic,9279.0.html at April 27, 2008, 11:43:43 AM in case you missed the thread), so it's been up for over a week.  If they change the schedule, they will probably disappoint lots of people at this point.

Save your energy for May 27th.  On that day, let's start lobbying for more old school anime in Fanime 2009!

I'm reviving this thread, because I think it's a great idea.  Can we get an old-school room for '09?  I'm talking seriously old-school like the stuff mentioned previously, Otaku no Video (live action, I know, but hilarious!), Sailor Moon (1st or 2nd season subbed), Urusei Yatsura, Tenchi Muyo!, Lupin III y'know, old stuff that got the 25+ crowd into anime.  And GoLion.  Seriously, as marathon late-at-night awesomeness.

I'm glad to see that there are people out there that can appreciate the old school like Tekkaman Blade and Maison Ikkoku.

It would be nice to have more old school anime at the con even if it didn't have it own room.

is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcendental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? at least it is true that man has no control, even over his own destiny.
