What old anime have you been watching?
Is that supposed to be anime?
I've been entertaining the idea of rewatching Ojarumaru, though it's not exactly old. It's been airing since the 90's, I think, at least before I was born.
The whole thing? No, maybe the first volume though. I'm re-encoding it from DVD so for one it takes a long time to download, and then I have to:
-split all the VODs one by one to their own directories
-inverse telecine and crop the frame individually for each film
-OCR the subtitles and then correct+style them
-encode and mux the whole thing
I don't think I'll mess with tons of test encodes since they look pretty shitty due to being old and damaged and low resolution, so at least that's not gonna take too long.
I'll up the first one soon
I'm rewatching Eva for the 9th time in the 2 years I've been watching anime.
It's still as refreshing and captivating as the first time, it's really like I'm in love.
I'm also starting like Rei more and more, even though I really liked Asuka at first and didn't really register Rei that much. Now if only Mari was in the original and had an actual role, such a waste of a nice character design.
Zeta Gundam and it's absolutely fantastic. Much better than 0079 but I love both shows, Kamile is just a more enjoyable protagonist than Amuro was which makes Zeta interesting.
I was thinking of watching either Giant Gorg or Ashita no Joe next.
rewatched legend of the galactic heroes... unambiguously my favorite anime
Currently watching Patlabor. TV, OVA and first movie are still the best. Later movies are still shamefully terrible even by the already shamefully terrible standards of shamefully terrible anime.
I will never understand how people can enjoy Gundam. I tend to have pretty average and commonplace taste, so the fact that Gundam spawned a successful franchise and is still widely liked confuses me incredibly.
I felt the exact same way but after watching it from 0079 it's actually really enjoyable. The fact it spawned a multimedia franchise with so many entries is what was so intimidating about it, I had only first hand experience with Wing when it aired in my country on our version of Toonami years back but I didn't like that much but I am really loving the Universal Century stuff so far.
Also Char pretty much makes it worth watching.
Are there any decent uploads of Sally on Bakabt or Nyaa? I know it's on youtube but I would rather download it as opposed to streaming. I am mostly interested in Sally since it's the rumoured the first mahou shoujo not to mention it's involvement in the whole Aum affair, supposedly the leader of that cult's mysticism and stuff was inspired by Sally.
I need to finish watching the OVAs and movies but then I would have no more LOGH to watch. Oh well, luckily I managed to find one of the novels when I visited Book Off this year. Bought it for the price of $1 which was a great find and it was the 4th novel in the series where Phezzan is occupied I think.
0079 and Zeta. MCs keep exploding in emotion out of nowhere. They also tend to fall madly in love at first sight, because of esper affinity or something, which is probably the worst way I can think of of introducing romance. There's also those incredibly obvious and hamfisted death flags. And those incredibly annoying kids. And people making some incredibly dumb decisions but nobody pointing out how incredibly retarded they were and instead brushing things off as the folly of youth or something. I could go on and on and on, but typing from a tablet is tiresome.
There's the few episodes that TSHS subbed.
Sally was the first magical girl TV-manga but the Himitsu no Akko-chan manga came out earlier. Beyond that it depends on what you count as magical girl.
Killing time with OVAs. Nineteen 19 was pretty good for a half drama half music video.
>1968 - Kyojin no Hoshi [N/A]
Does anybody have a HD version of the Christmas party?
I degrained a bit, it should come out at 150 or less now I'm hoping. 1h30 encode (this is Momotarou with narration which should be interesting)
Interesting point. But I wasn't planning on telling you what you did wrong (if anything). I thought I'd just watch it, trusting that if you went about reencoding the batch at all, you considered yourself capable of producing something better.
I only really made the post to let you know that somebody is taking note of your effort.
I realized that I have seen a TV anime from every year since 71, an OVA for every year since 83, a hentai for every year since 84 but for movies I have a gap in 96.
Now Black Jack will have to patch that.
I desire old good fantasy anime. I'm looking for eighties stuff or pre-Slayers nineties stuff. Not really a fan of the typical Slayers-inspired fantasy comedy stuff. Anybody know any good stuff?
[Anonymoose] Nihonichi Momotarou (DVD, 10bit) [A98921CD].mkv
I'll do more tomorrow or something
Well, anime is pretty shit as a medium for fantasy. Slayers is, de facto, better written and more detailed and has a more engaging and better cast than all the other more "serious" shit out there.
Books is the only way to go. Not films, not TV series, not manga, not comics - books.
Pretty sure that is just the film being in horrible condition from being so old.
If you look at screenshots like this it really does look like it.
I would assume it all depends how much care the people who end up holding the film take with it. There are lots of films from this era that simply don't even exist anymore. Using cels for drawing had only just started coming in around 1928 aswell and the Japanese only had access to imported or poor quality material even reusing the celluloid by washing it. I would assume given that the variation is either due to storage of the film or the quality of material it was on to begin with.
I bought Tetsuwan Atom DVD boxes since I couldn't find any of it online (private trackers, Google, all normal channels, etc.)
I want to get Tetsujin 28 too, rather not ruin myself over it. Found one torrent with some Chinese WMVs and disc images of a box set, but it's missing disc 5. Any other ideas?
If you are interested in general about the history of these old animations and the early Japanese industry perhaps to provide some historical context when watching these films these two articles and free ebook are quite good reading material.
Gundam victory ,katejina is my new retro-waifu
Might end up buying the new DVD box sets for that too when I get money.
Goddamn it sucks how hard it is to watch old anime. No subtitles for anything, and lucky if you can even find raws.
Oh really, I am supposing their early films aren't in poor condition? If so I guess the blame must be put on the way the films were stored or maybe having a celluloid of poorer manufacture. I have read that the celluloid in Japan early on was 'slightly yellowish and thicker compared to the thinner more transparent variety available in America" which I would suppose would point to an inferior production technique at the time but that is just speculation on my part.
I have a box set called "Masters of Japanese Animation", has some old anime. I'm not sure if it's in the BakaBT collection already, I'll try to find it and post. I suspect that's already uploaded, but if not I can rip it.
Have you already watched Yuki no Taiyou?
Shit, yeah, I just noticed that mine is stuck.
I can rip my DVD if anyone wants it, but the only encoding I can do is just some Handbrake shit from an old tutorial. I can post the .iso if anyone wants to reencode it.
I've been watching City Hunter, I'm almost done the second series. It's enjoyable but the quality goes up and down a lot between episodes.
I don't watch any Gundam but Turn A was said to be one of the better Gundam series so I gave that a go and it was such fucking trash, especially towards the end.
I cannot believe I actually finished it.
>implying that would have saved it at all
For all the garbage characters, plot threads and shitty pacing, no, it could not have fucking saved that crap.
For the meantime until I get around to watching the original MSG, fuck gundam. It's shit. All of it.
honestly wouldn't have been memorable except I rented it from a blockbuster when I was seven and you could see tits, and the dub said "hell"
and then my mom banned me from anime forever
Please Save My Earth.
It's really good. Like really good. Especially if you are into shows that are classified as hipster or deep and things like that. But it really is something special to me. I downloaded the manga and soundtracks as well after I was done with the OVA.
Now I'm watching Utena.
>Kamile is just a more enjoyable protagonist than Amuro was which makes Zeta interesting.
But that's wrong anon!
Still watching Future Boy Conan. Great show. Against my better judgement, a friend and I are are going to try and get it shown at out uni's anime club tonight. We figure it has a chance because of Miyazaki.
Not counting some shorts, the oldest thing I;ve seen to completion was Horus: Prince of the Sun. I really enjoyed it. Its influence definitely shows on later works by both Takahata and Miyazaki. The first episode of Future Boy Conan has A LOT in common with it.
I'm not really sure how that would go down, then I have never been to an anime club. I think Future Boy Conan can appeal to just about anyone who is looking for a good wholesome hearty story with some humour and drama though.
Do yourself a huge favor and watch Windaria. This is such an underrated anime, and it's a movie so it shouldn't take up much of your time.
In the mid-1960s, Toei also faced stiff competition from rival studios that produced lucrative television animation series. During that period, television had become a popular medium of entertainment and communication in Japan, and Toei’s management also decided to focus on producing animated television series. Eventually, there was a shortage of staff to work on the production of Hols. As a result, the film was made during a period that was shrouded with heated management arguments, threats, and labor disputes. In terms of artistic achievement, the animated story appealed both visually and narratively to university students and high school graduates (Fan, 1997: 141). Surprisingly, the film was only shown for ten days in the theater and Toei was disappointed with the “kind” of audience attending the film; the management was most concerned that the film did not seem to attract younger viewers, especially children. Hols became the lowest earning animation film in Toei D?ga’s box office returns and consequently, Takahata was demoted to assistant director.
A lot of shit in that movie was so convenient.
>Prince accidentally(?) kills his father
>"Even if you're the prince we'll have you take the responsibility" etc.
>Made the king
>Anasu's mother suddenly dies of nothing
>Izu shocked the city is flooded when he turned the valve himself
What the hell turned him into a piece of shit anyway.
Why in the fuck is this being done to Heidi?
I don't understand why they aren't, it's not like they're hard to find or anything (at least some of them).
Do you think if someone put up Atom raws someone would actually bother translating it?
I know it's not particularly old (12 years) but if Full Metal Panic any good?
I've been listening to the op for 5 days nonstop.
It's all just a matter of someone wanting to work on it. It's easier to download manga raws and determine if you want to translate it, than trying to find old VHS rips that have 0 seeds (and then getting people capable of timing, encoding, etc). Reading and listening are different, since most people only bother to learn reading, and also >>112806828
Whenever I watch older anime I realise how shit the ones we get now are (few exeptions).
That is because whenever you are watching old anime you are selecting from a relatively small pool of 'classics' and when you watch modern anime at 15-20 a season you are picking up any number of shows which could or could not be shit.
What you say is partialy true but you can't deny that anime know doesn't take any risks.
Sure there used to be a lot of shit anime too but the range of the themes and topics etc. was much wider.
It's because there's no hype around old shows. If something's translated then it's because somebody has a personal interest in a show and coincidentally also access to raws (of whatever quality).
Shit's not likely.
No it wasn't.
The OVAs from the golden OVA era were very different from the regular TV line up, but other than that, anime didn't change nearly as much as people like to think.
At best you could make an argument like "before Sailor Moon, magical girl anime used to be just slice of life!"
>trying to find old VHS rips that have 0 seeds
Atom is on DVD (though I don't know if it's upped anywhere) and so is Tetsujin 28-go and at least the first part of it is upped as ISOs.
I didn't watch puss in boots or this yet even though I went through all that trouble remuxing them and uploading them.
I hope I like them but just having them in best quality possible is good enough for me.
Is the anime anywhere as good as the manga? Manga gets beautiful as shit somewhere 1/4 through. Those backgrounds and the way the author presents locations is brilliant.
I can't compare them because I haven't read it, but the anime is good, is what I know. It's ugly and muddy early on as well but the visual effects, use of sound, storyboarding and so on are astounding, especially for a newbie director adapting a phenomenally popular manga.
>haven't read the manga
I've been a Dezakifag longer than it's been translated unfortunately.
Watching Cardcaptor Sakura for the first time.
I'm up to episode 17.
When does this get good? There are some enjoyable parts but so far I'm on 5 and there are so many mellodramtic parts. Marie a shit.
can't say if i completed something past 85.
probably gundam but i'm sure i missed some episodes, for sure.
same for Ribbon no kishim i still miss some filler episodes (yeah Ribbon no kishi.....dunno if you ever know what is it....=
Better than the shitty high school harem all the kids watch these days.
ZZ. When's it get better? Zeta was way more interesting.
And 0079 had better suits. I am seriously not feeling Axis' designs and Zeta already had me on edge. Do we ever see Gelgoogs fight again?
