Welp, I won't be able to see any of that.

My crappy PC can only take up to 1080p.

Oh well.

I wouldn't say that.

Well I suppose that holds true for TV series, but movies have been in 16:9 for ages.

For instance, I have a Project A-Ko laserdisc that's formatted in 16:9, but it's designed to run on a 4:3 TV so they gave it this funny letterbox job that has the movie displayed on the top 2/3 of the screen and the subtitles fill the bottom 1/3 of black space.

Overall, I'd say you're completely safe with post-'05 anime.

Yeah...

It's weird, actually. I can't stand 4:3 anymore either because all my screens are 16:9.

To give you a general idea of the requirements, an 8k stream (33.1 million pixels) would require 48-50 Gbps of bandwidth.
Damn, will streaming 4k HD via the Internet be a viable option? Not to mention the insane file size for a single episode with decent quality.

720p is still a grand luxury to me. 4k is just ridiculous, lol.

It doesn't need to be a bigger monitor, you just download anime in 16:9 resolution? It could be a problem since most of the old animes are in 4:3.

I've never shied away from watching 16:9 anime on the old 4:3 screens I still use (like right now), nor have I done so more recently with 4:3 content on my newer 16:9 screens. While I don't entirely understand the aversion to black bars, I can answer the question with some confidence.

Negative-Travis said:

Not quite. I did run through and count them awhile back, and while I can't find the exact numbers, I can say this much:

First 16:9 TV anime: Betterman (Spring 1999), Vandread (Fall 2000)

After that, 16:9 anime gradually increased year to year.

In the Fall 2006 season, the 16:9 numbers jumped considerably, to the point where 4:3 became a small minority.

The last otaku-market 4:3 TV anime aired in 2007, those being Manabi Straight, Saint October (both Winter '07), and Lovely Complex (Spring '07). After that, the only 4:3 anime have been all-ages/kodomo shows like Chi's Sweet Home and the last 4:3 TV anime I've been able to find, Bakugan Battle Brawlers: New Vestroia (Spring '09). Most long-running anime such as Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece switched to 16:9 around April of 2008. Some hentai continued to be made in 4:3 through the late 00s, though I don't know exactly when that practice stopped.

So the shortest answer would be "Fall 2007."

when hd(720p) became the standard resolution
Again, not quite. There were a number of TV series in 2007 and 2008 (after the 16:9 transition was done) whose broadcasts were low-res (=720x480 anamorphic/letterboxed), or as the fansubbers released them, 400p. Even some of the 720p broadcasts for 2006-2009 anime were eventually regarded as upscales of low-res animation, as evidenced by the way people threw out their HDTV-rips of shows like Honey & Clover 2, Shigofumi, and Myself; Yourself in favor of DVD-rips.

No, get an old monitor: a 4:3 screen as a secondary display -- works for 4:3 content and hiding the flaws in low-res anime that become more visible on large screens. It shouldn't be too hard to find one via Craigslist > Free or charity electronics shops.

2020 for ultra HD. Can't wait for dat 8k resolution.
Oh yeah, I can't wait to see how awesomely TV stations can upscale anime that'll still be made (as it is today) at 540p or 720p to 4K or 8K or whatever.
