What is your guys opinions? Would be interested to get explanations as to why you prefer one decade over the other.

70s
80s
90s
2000s
Today's Anime

This is a very interesting topic because anime has changed so much over time. I will give my vote to the 90s. I don't mean to sound like an ass, but look at the 90s classics and compare to them to todays. Visually, it is really sad for me to look at many of today's Anime. I mean the art style has changed so much. How did Cowboy Bebop turn into little girls with huge eyes, ultra bright colors, and all this nonsense?

Actually, I came up with this interesting comparison for the gamers out there. Top 90s Anime is to Xenogears as top modern anime is to Persona 3/4. NIS games would represent the range of mediocre games that appeal to a very narrow audience with a few decent titles, which is what I feel so much of modern anime is.

2000-today, i guess. Idk, Death Note was made in 2007, Darker than Black even earlier. Both were epic, but today we have Black Rock Shooter and Another ect. Anyway, i guess nowadays they're making more 'intelegent' /action/mystery/more realistic anime, with the exception of Detective conan which was like 30 years ago
'No matter how good you are you alone cannot change the world.' -L Death Note
'I don't like that word. After all, it makes me lonesome. Even though, 'Farewell'. I have to make sure I say it right, Amber?' -Maki, Darker than Black

They say too much thinking can create something that's not really there in the first place. So give me a moment, I'm busy thinking about cake.

Hmm, this looks familiar.

I don't prefer any decades in particular. I've liked plenty of series regardless of when they were released.

I think it's kinda genre depended.
All the moe and cute stuff is like 2007-, while good slice 'n' life anime were in the 80s and 90s.
There's also stuff like Mecha that was good throughout the decades.

Well, by realism many do tend to just take a modern city in Japan and revolve a storyline around a bunch of high school or jr. high students. I don't find it exactly creative and intelligent is debatable.

Death Note is also one of my favorite anime and it was very well executed. I am not bashing modern anime as bad as I love a few of them. I am just not a huge fan of a lot of the art style and this genre revolving around school girls. I find it highly distasteful.

90's most deffinetly. Char designs, most stories, freedom for the writers and athe ability to actually do what they want with an anime. This era also had much of the most creative animes, like Angel's Egg etc. (today we have stuff from Masaki Yuasa, who I think is awesome but barely anyone knows about him) Also the 90's are sentimentally valuable to me, becase thats the stuff that I gew up watching aswell as the use of actual drawn art which was at its peak during this time.

Also, I don't really see how your videogame comparisons apply. Especially with Xenogears, if you're trying to laud it as something overly spectacular.

According to MALGraph, my highest rated decade as of now is 1980.

90 and 2000's at a tie for most anime- That smooth animation quality is great for action scenes.

Wow I'm so tired. I should stop coming online at night and post unthoughtful gibberish.

I think it was around 95-07. The shift to digital did hurt anime quite a bit at the start in terms of visual quality, but the variety of groundbreaking titles was astonishing.

The last 10 years. If I have to do it in actual decades, I am guessing I will like 2010-2020 more than anything else, as the 2 years its had have pretty much been my favorite. So I like new anime, shoot me.

Uhm, I'm not too sure. According to my MALGraph, 00's anime is rated highest by me but I can't depend solely on that since I haven't watched all the 00's anime. Also, LoGH (my current favorite anime) started being made in late 80s and ended in late 90s, so yes, I'm not certain about the best era of anime.

1998: Cowboy Bebop, Serial Eperiments Lain, Trigun, Outlaw Star, Initial D, Cardcaptor Sakura, Kare Kano and even some lesser known but pretty amazing ones like Vampire Princess Miyu and Gasaraki were realeased in the same year.

On the whole though, I think I prefer the 90s and 2000 - 2008 shows, of what I've watched so far.

63- 94 is the best era of anime and manga
the Tezuka era and the golden age [79-94] the era anime can never get back to cuase Japan as a nation in our life life will never be a prosperous as a nation like it was in the 80's - mid 90's sad fact


the quilty of anime will always be shown on the state of Japan economicly speaking for exmaple there was more anime on at prime time non satalite or cable TV during this time 79-94 its post 2000 in the maib were more and More UHF anime stated to happen in around 04 alot of anime and Toku [ toku before 04 in mian] started to lose its prime time slots orimr time being for 1400- 1700 then 20-00 - 25-00
butt hell even the rely high hitters n=dont get the Ratings thay should leveing out the top 3 but the big shounen of the moment is One Piece witch has never broken top 3 and gets 15.00 a week thats a 7% viewer shere while Both DBz and Seiya in there times are around 15-18% viewer Share thats is around as high as wat the big three TV anime in japan get now and DB/DBZ and Seiya also never broke the top three

According to my ratings, the older the anime, the better I rate them. I don't care, it just so happened this way.
I would rather call it a coincidence, there were recent anime which I found to be pretty good.

It has been said here before in other threads, but I will repeat it differently, proportionally shit in the past is the same as the shit today, it applies to many things. People only notice more what they consider to be bad anime today because it's more accessible, I doubt most here can name even 20 anime before 1980, but they probably would be quite eager to endorse the last 30 great anime they watched in the last decade.

This is true. In addition to just exposure, it really can be quite a pain finding older animes, even with the internet. If they are fully subbed in the first place.

Two decades, not two eras. http://www.thefreedictionary.com/ERA (same goes to the OP)


Personally, I have the feeling that older anime have better execution of the ideas, but the ideas themselves are much simpler than the ones in today's anime.
For that reason, I tend to rate older anime higher than more recent anime. Hell, just check my MALgraph.

Then correct the OP because I am just following his lead on what divisions of time he used for this topic. He separated eras into decades.

Pretty much everything I've given a 10/10 to came out in 2000-2009 (well, except Berserk), so I'd say that's the era I'd choose.

Age is very relevant.

You'll notice that older people prefer things that were popular in their childhood. Nostalgia does that.

Look at the original star wars trilogy. Those that were born in that generation prefer it to the prequels. Same thing with anime. People that were born in the early 80's may prefer anime in those times since it's a precious childhood memory.

As for the OP's question, I think this question is unfair. I think most will view the latest 'era' as the better one purely because animation quality is significantly better now.

If you look up recent polls of top 25 anime ( Look for polls done in japan ), you'll notice that most of the anime in the list are from the past 2-6 years. The industry is still far too young to truly judge which is the better era.

Now if we were talking American cartoons and go back to the 20's, then this question would make more sense.

Ah but those are lists of characters, not anime. Totally different imo since there's not many heros/heroines in the past 2-6 years that are memorable.

Polls I've seen list Bakemonogatari as the #1 anime of 2000-2012, with K-ON! as #2 =/

Toku and anime is linked in many ways soo that list is more valid than any thing

There can be no power greater anywhere beneath the sun
Yet what force on earth is weaker than the feeble strength of one
For the Union makes us strong

Assuming you mean 'industry', it's been around since 1907.

@Yvese
Well you have a point.
I have indeed noticed that a lot of older people prefer series like dragonball, things one would consider nostalgic.

Pardon my ignorance.
The Internet is a very bad place, you should never go there.

If you look up recent polls of top 25 anime ( Look for polls done in japan ), you'll notice that most of the anime in the list are from the past 2-6 years. The industry is still far too young to truly judge which is the better era.

Now if we were talking American cartoons and go back to the 20's, then this question would make more sense.


Funny that you mention Japanese polls, here's one. Those Jap's memories go back father than 2-6 years. I think you're talking about American anime fans like the top 10 on MAL.

Ah but those are lists of characters, not anime. Totally different imo since there's not many heros/heroines in the past 2-6 years that are memorable.

Polls I've seen list Bakemonogatari as the #1 anime of 2000-2012, with K-ON! as #2 =/


You opinion is completely trash as the character lists have everything to do with anime and speaks volumes about the length of referential anime memory the Japanese have. It shows their memory to be more than 2-6 years and your just pissy that it proves your nonsense wrong.

there sohows we have better taste than you


Who the hell are you talking to? I don't have an issue with the list. I happen to agree with most characters on there and find the breakdown by age ranges to be pretty interesting.
