I thought it would be appropriate to have a place where we can discuss classic animation. This topic can be used to discuss anything relating to Japanese Retro Animation. Feel free to discuss your favourites, what you dislike, what you missed or even make some recommendations.

Enjoy!

@kerr9000 Glad to hear there are some fellow retro anime viewers among us! Astro Boy & Dragonball are probably a given for most. I agree I love the older stuff.

Those aesthetics.

for me I loved transformers and got into Anime as my dad kind of went out looking for anything else that was giant robots and we kind of know Anime definitely has that covered lol

How old does it have to be before you consider it retro?

Anyhow earlier this year I've started to collect a lot of the anime I liked when I was younger on Blu-Ray (or newer entries that are part of the franchise).

So far in this regard I've got New Cutey Honey, Tekkaman Blade II, Godannar!!, the Fatal Fury OVAs/movie, Outlaw Star, Neon Genesis Evangelion including End of Eva (I've also got the first two Rebuild films, but I don't know if those count), and a bunch of Lupin the 3rd movies (most are newer, but I have Mystery of Mamo & Castle of Cagliostro too). I should have Code Geass arriving today as well.

Not a franchise I had a connection to as a kid, but I also discovered City Hunter this year & have the entire series on Blu-Ray as well as the 2019 movie.

Currently Playing:
Switch - Blade Strangers
PS4 - Kingdom Hearts III, Tetris Effect (VR)

@exit Cool to see the video you posted. I just ordered the blu ray of Tobikage a few days ago. It will probably arrive a few days from now. A few years back, I suddenly got obsessed with old mecha anime(chronic insomnia is weird), more super-robot, but mecha in general. And I'll take a look at other anime from that time period. I love that 80s and 90s anime look. In a lot of cases, the animation is surprisingly good, even for TV standards. Goshogun is a good example of that. I'm currently working my way through Fist of the North Star and having a good time doing that. Beast King GoLion is a nostalgic favorite(Voltron), and the Japanese language version is messed up(in a good way). The follow up, Dairugger is surprisingly tame in comparison, but that was one of the best shows I've watched so far. It's also celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. I need to use my time better to squeeze in more episodes, but I'm finally making more progress, but because I favor TV shows I get shows faster than I watch.
