Old School Anime Thread (REPRESENT!)
« on: April 19, 2006, 12:29:52 AM »

Reset your long dead tamagotchi and slip on those kicking B.K. Knights! It's time to show some love for your old school favorites in Japanimation before you even knew Japan even existed!

List your favorite anime from back in the day and give us some old school love on them.

Before Naruto, the PREMIRE ninja anime was NINJA SCROLL! Heavy on action, heavy on the blood and gore, and heavy in SNAKES IN VAGINAS! Ninja Scroll is simply a bad ass classic. One MOVIE beats a 200 something episode series like naruto anyday in my eyes.

Shadow Skill in my mind is still one of the most underated anime's ever made, with incredible (for it's time) fight scenes, and the most beautiful final 10 minute final battle ever. It wasn't all speed lines and transformation spells, if you want to see a heavily physical fight done right, check out Shadow Skill (but not part 2, that was garbage)

Honestly, new anime (2000 and up) while there are a few good one's here and there, don't have that edgey, adult feeling that they once used too. Does anyone remember the first minutes of Ghost in The Shell Where LT Kusanagi blow's some politiction's head off, and their spinal cords and stuff everywhere? Where's the shock value, the utterly out there bizarre and out there that old school anime had? I watched cartoon animals hit each other with kitchen utensils in the afternoon, then watched DRACULA BLOW A MINION'S BRAINS ALL OVER A WALL at night watching Vampire Hunter D.  Anyone else digging me on this? There's just too much drama (fo' yo' momma) now!

Alright time to let this rant go (for now) Time to pass it to the otakus to keep it real and represent your old school anime.

Other major worthy mentions:
-Dominion Tank
-Dirty Pair (flash and original)
-Angel Cop (MUCHO BLOODY AND GOOD)
-Wicked City (walk in vagina's, anyone?)
-Project A-Ko

Urusei Yatsura!



I have over 37 VHS tapes of the series and own 3 of the Boxsets. That show never fails to amaze me.

Project A-Ko and Robot Carnival pretty much got me interested in anime.

How about Tenchi Muyo (I prefer the T.V. series myself).

I'm somehow deeply pained to realize that SM and Tenchi Muyo (And CCS?!?!) are old enough to be considered 'old school' nowadays...

Though I realized just a little while ago that Bebop is getting on in years, too.  -_-;

Nooooooooooooo!!!  Bebop is old school now?!?  Gawd I feel old.

I guess the real question is, what makes an anime "Old School"?  There probably is a big grey area on this one.

SM & Tenchi certainly don't feel old-school yet.  And CCS is totally not old-school.  That began airing in 1998.  It hasn't even been a decade.

All good picks everybody! Keep on representing!

Someone asked me this question the other day when I mentioned the topic of old school anime, (since it would be slightly unfair to put late 90's anime into the old school column) So I agree with the last poster that said stuff 10 years from now would be suitable.

Next up: Key the Metal Idol.

On KTEH, Yurei Yatsura and KMI were the hour anime block the station had, Key to me was then the total Mind Fuck Anime.  A robot girl that must make a thousand friends decides to become an idol, evil business men try to suck GOO out of other wannabe idol's and makes them lip synch for dancing robo-puppets. Total awesome.

I find it hard for myself to call anything made after the 80's "old-school."  So examples would consist of Gundam, Macross, Project A-ko, Gatchaman, Galaxy Express 999, Lupin, Urusei Yatsura, Doraemon, etc.

Of course, I know most people don't really share my views and I suppose I can see the logic behind calling anything a decade old "old-school."
