World Masterpiece Theatre is a Japanese TV anime staple that showcases an animated version of a different classical book or story each year. It originally aired from 1969 to 1997 and then resumed in 2007. WMT series were originally produced by Mushi Production and Zuiyo Eizo, and then by the latter's successor Nippon Animation, and originally air primarily on Fuji Television.

The series has been known by various different names over the years, often reflecting changes to the sponsors, but "World Masterpiece Theatre" is the name most commonly used by viewers. Nippon Animation's official English name for the series is The Classic Family Theater Series.

Classic 20th-century series and films that most old-school otaku have heard of and many older fans will cite as the reason they became a life-long weeb in the first place. Some have gotten sequels or modern reboots, while others have been relegated to the past and stand alone as fondly-remembered products of their time. If you want to take a journey through anime history, these shows are the place to start!

Additional info as requested by MAL staff:

Definition of classic: "A work of art of recognized and established value."

Criteria for this list: Were popular or well-known at some point during the 20th century, or were based on well-known source material of the time.

Part two of the list of anime released between January 1963 and January 2000 that are worth your time. (For better or worse).

Part One:
Part Three:
Part Four:

Note: Moderators had taken down the stacks before, since it was not wholly information based. I will post this as a note as to why such series are essential in order to defend them all as a blanket statement.

Most of the series featured have some sort of significance in terms of first best or darkest for their era which can be categorized by decennium or part of a decennium (early, middle, late). These are mixed around in order in order to give those who subscribed to list a challenge. While I could give an individual breakdown, I think some research is better left up to those who have subscribed to the stacks, since this allows for additional cultural insight into what was popular in Japan at the time, which is sometimes disconnected from the United States, as well as the rest of North America and Europe in many ways. For example, the Crayon Shin-Chan that aired in the United States and Canada is different to the one that aired in Europe, is different to the one that aired in Japan. By recommending to seek out Japanese versions of series, it grows understanding. I am not the first one to have thought of this. In the United States, there used to be a channel called ImaginAsian TV which had the same purpose of informing people about Japanese popular culture through anime. The San Francisco and San Diego PBS stations did the same thing and NHK World Japan carries this on through series like Little Charo and previously Maiko-san Chi no Makanai-san.

I think it is agreed upon that retro is a niche, but with handicaps on subject matter like availability.

Those series that had not one but TWO (or more!) anime adaptations!!

Disclaimer: I'm not sure that I know every anime that fits this criteria so I will add those that I already know about and add more as I see more of this (dm me or comment in my profile if you want me to add an specific item, stick to the rules down below tho). This will prolly need more parts due to the 50 items limit per list, any new part will be linked at the end of this description. This is not a recommendation list, there's some adaptations that I wouldn't recommend but they're included since it fits the topic of the list, as it's purpose is giving visibility to these type of cases.

-Has to be at least 2 anime adaptations (regarding of length/episode number/format..) of the same original media (manga, novel, game, etc).
-Sequels don't count, so won't be added (you can search sequels for an adaptation on your own by clicking the name of the item to go to it's page). I do this to reduce the amount of items per list due to the 50 item limit per stack, in this way there's less parts needed for continue this 'project'.

Probably wont be updated anymore there was a change today (24th May 2024) in how the scores are calculated (?) and because of that everything in this list went back to lower scores again, so I'll probably leave this as it is currently to preserve the history before they edited the system (?)

Osamu Tezuka was a Japanese manga artist, cartoonist, animator, and film producer. His prolific output, pioneering techniques, and innovative redefinitions of genres earned him such titles as "the father of manga," "the godfather of manga" and "the god of manga." Additionally, he is often considered the Japanese equivalent to Walt Disney, who served as a major inspiration during Tezuka's formative years.

Tezuka began what was known as the manga revolution in Japan with his New Treasure Island published in 1947. His legendary output would spawn some of the most influential, successful, and well-received manga series including Tetsuwan Atom, Jungle Taitei, Black Jack, and Hi no Tori, all of which won several awards.

This list includes Must Watch Anime Adaptations of God of Manga Osamu Tezuka's Works
