Usually by old they mean early 2000s, 90s, 80s, 70s and 60s

if early 2000s and 90s is old, to me, you are a total anime noob. i think rurouni kenshin stands up very well today. character and mech design wise, gundam holds up VERY WELL if you play the recent games based on the first series. if you play giren's greed on saturn, psx, dreamcast, ps2, or psp, some of the scenes are reanimated and artistically, it holds up well.

here is giren's speech from the game which was also featured in the original 1979 series

then you have a recent series like gundam seed where hirai hisashi can't draw more than one fucking face and you can't tell if it's a man or woman. and moe characters look all the same except different color hair.

Nah. I just don't like graphics where they don't even try. Lots of Shaft anime come to mind.

90's is not old 80's is not old

Yet what force on earth is weaker than the feeble strength of one
For the Union makes us strong

I don't really like old anime graphics. I try to look for the remastered version if there is one. If there isn't then I just suck it up and watch the anime.

I don't mind old animation at all.If I love the character designs, then the animation can be as mediocre as it pleases.I don't like it when manga I like get adaptations with shitty animation though, unless the anime is from the 70's or something.(ie:Ashita no Joe)

And since I don't really like most of the character designs in shows today, I don't really give a damn about how well they move or not.It's like, let's see, if you animated poop and made it move amazingly(don't ask me how lol), I would still prefer something that's visually interesting to me even if badly animated over it.You might say I'm not 'appreciating how good the animation is' but while I can admit that the animation is good, it still doesn't mean that I actually like the style it's drawn in, making me not like it as a whole.I think.

Also, 70's is old.I have this friend who insists 90's is old, and that's just retarded.That would mean I'm old, and I'm not even 20 yet.

I'm not bothered by the graphics. If an anime is good, then it's good. If it's ass then it's ass, no amount of quality in the animation is going to save it from a drop in my eyes.

90's is not old 80's is not old


80s definitely aren't that old. I'd say everything before 1980.

I can understand people disliking the visuals in early 2000s, but to call it old is just stupid. So what, in 5 years, Bakemonogatari will be old school?

The no. 1 selling point of an anime for me is the story but a good illustration and animation makes a difference. I don't care if the animation/graphics is bad as long as the story is good.

I don't hate them because of the time period they have been made
