/a/ntoinette-sama, have you watched your old anime?
Except the airing ones I have been watching nothing but old anime. Currently watching VOTOMS and it's not so bad, I also just downloaded the 3 seasons of Space Battleship Yamato are they good? Loved the remake.
>are they good?
If you like old space opera, yes they are.
Many people usually complain about the more nationalistic tones of the original but it's a good anime anyway, just don't take all the usual tropes about Japan being the best thing ever too seriously.
I recently discovered The Laughing Salesman.
Excellent black humor for it's time.
What are you talking about Anon, that's clearly a LoGH screenshot.
well over the weekend I just watched Sephiroth and Dio Brando getting it on, which was surprising to say the least.
Thank god for Nerieru scans for completing the books, It really made me appreciate the anime and movies of this series.
I started watching this weeks ago for "lol shoujo nostalgia", but not feeling very up to it. Even subs doesn't exist after some point.
If you're talking about Oscar-sama, why not both? You'll love it so much that you are also going to watch the anime/read the manga.
S1 is better than the remake, you'll notice how diluted the remake is in comparison because they added loads of girls for fanservice and had to clog down the pace with their own backstories.
What I'm interested in is season 2&3, are they on the same level as the first season given that the remake only covers the first it'd be new ground.
I didn't read the mange but maybe start with that nontheless because maybe by the time you are finished all the bD episodes are released.
> are they on the same level as the first season given that the remake only covers
Remake is the S1 general plot but takes from elements found in S2 and beyond so it's a bit of a clusterfuck.
Don't forget that there's two movies that take place between S2 and S3 with are canonically sequels and fit in between them.
>but not feeling very up to it.
Georgie, like many other Shoujo anime of her time become increasingly depressing, if you want some more lighthearted fun you'd be better off watching Tokimeki or Hai Step Jun.
Fuck yeah Nosecaflowne
Did we watch the same show? He wasn't constantly smiling but he does has his moments.
We oochoo kiezock-oo now
It's not like he's depressed, he's just very melancholic.
He smiles a lot especially in the TV series.
In my memories, this was the show where everyone died, good guys led a desperate struggle mostly doomed to fail, and Harlock is progressively left alone as his friends upload themselves in machines, stay on backwater planets, betray him (for good reasons) or plain die. The smiles did not make an impression on me.
Fucking Harlock being so damn sexy.
Doesn't sound too familiar, this is the show where everybody is ALREADY dead before the TV series even begins and it's really just this age-old embodiment of Humanity (Harlock) floating around Earth to watch over his dead best friends daughter and some shit comes up.
In the far far future, technology has advanced enough so that it no longer matters what a spaceship looks like. You can have a space express service with a ship that looks like a 19th century train. Imagine where you can go and what adventures you can have. We follow Tetsuro as he goes on these adventures.
TV Harlock dozing off
Harlock Saga Harlock behind TV Harlock
Gun Frontier Harlock with Tochiro's hat on
Cosmo Warrior Zero Harlock behind Gun Frontier Harlock
Top Harlock should be Space Symphony Maetel Harlock
Aviator hat Harlock is the original Harlock
Can't remember red jacket Harlock though.
FUCK YEAH ISAMU!
That Kill la Kill OVA actually had a reference to this, I was very impressed.
Wouldn't it be Space Pirate TV Harlock standing center? One dozing off has blue pants and blue undershirt.
I thought behind Gun Frontier Harlock was Arcadia of my Youth Deathshadow-Captain Harlock
Wasn't that limited to 2199? They really ruined Desslers character in that he was no longer HONOURABLE AND GREAT CHAIR DESSLER BANZAI but a 'average earth politician'.
Oh right you mean those versions. U-Q's had it subbed on a DVD rip for a while (google secretninjaempire) but it's nowhere as horrible as Shin-Getter's rips.
Macross Plus OVA
First TV series has blue/gray pants, SSX has black pants just like Harlock Saga, you might be right about Arcadia of my Youth Harlock though, he still doesnt' have the scar as well.
What bothers me is Red Jacket Harlock, unless it's a reference to Queen Millennia.
>First TV series has blue/gray pants
But the undershirt, I could have sworn it was SSX Harlock with the blue undershirt.
Red Jacket Harlock is directly from Arcadia of my Youth/SSX, that's deathshadow captain Harlock.
I'm still waiting for Live-Evil to finish subbing Queen Millennia before I start watching that.
>But the undershirt, I could have sworn it was SSX Harlock with the blue undershirt.
Now you're making me wonder about it.
Gotta rewatch it and see for myself, too many harlocks.
>What bothers me is Red Jacket Harlock, unless it's a reference to Queen Millennia.
A reference to Leiji wanting to make Mamoru Kodai from Yamato into Harlock? Wasn't his uniform red underneath the big blue coat?
It actually was but I doubt it's a reference in that way. Harlock wore that uniform simply because it was a uniform, an officers coat for officers in the Earth Federation or whatever it's called back when he commanded the Deathshadow.
It either comes down to Mamoru or the Harlock clone in Queen Millennia, which I always forget the name, he too has a red jacket most of the times.
I'd say Mamoru is the closest due to how is heavily implied he's Yamato's universe Harlock in the manga.
>I'd say Mamoru is the closest due to how is heavily implied he's Yamato's universe Harlock in the manga.
Isn't Yamato sorta out of touch from the whole leijiverse thing compared to other leiji works? It does have it's cross-overs but they're usually not a huge deal. I think that one cat is the only creature that appears in ALL leijiverse works, Mii.
I just don't understand how there's people who don't like HNK anime. Even the filler it's gold.
>Isn't Yamato sorta out of touch from the whole leijiverse thing compared to other leiji works?
Yeah, mainly because of all the troubles Matsumoto had while working on Yamato.
The Death Shadow does appear in the Yamato manga and Harlock as well, Matsumoto himself said that he wanted to make Harlock's first appearance in Yamato so I guess you can say it's another Harlock that exists outside of the classic Leijiverse.
Most of the Leijiverse still doesn't make much sense, there are countless contradictions throughout the series.
>the only creature that appears in ALL leijiverse works, Mii.
THAT FUCKING CAT
>there are countless contradictions throughout the series.
Even each series has contradictions/inconsistencies within itself. It has to be the most unreconcilable universe ever.
I don't think a character like Harlock would really flourish as well in Yamato, Space Pirate was great because it was somehow able to have two fucking utopia's and some of the most idealistic characters ever yet still ground them against reality. I can only assume that the friction you'd usually get with these elements doesn't overheat and destroy the series because the vacuum of space keeps them discrete enough.
Who Dai no Daibouken here?
Oskar best girl.
I'm so glad there's quality lewds of her.
I know the story is far from being intelligent, but I vaguely remember watching Georgie as a kid on TV and just want to complete it. I loved Candy more back then, so I didn't watch the other shoujoshit shown on TV.
>I don't think a character like Harlock would really flourish as well in Yamato
Well, considering his role in Yamato was supposed to be that of the mysterious figure watching over the protagonists it could have been kind of similar to the one that appears in GE999, except this one would have been a full cyborg that protected Susumu and the others out of family ties instead of higher ideals.
> I can only assume that the friction you'd usually get with these elements doesn't overheat and destroy the series because the vacuum of space keeps them discrete enough.
Yeah, the sea of stars is the best setting for Harlock, he can wander as much as he likes and be true to his ideals, he's free to go where he wants when he wants, it's the usual romantic man of the sea stereotype that comes from the romantic era but in space instead of water, and I can safely say it works like a charm.
N...no scat or other stuff I hope, I don't trust Niku Ringo.
>N...no scat or other stuff I hope, I don't trust Niku Ringo.
No scat, not even futa. Just vanilla... as far as he can do vanilla.
>except this one would have been a full cyborg
Now that REALLY goes against the grain of Harlock. I think I discussed this with somebody on this board before that Harlock being full cyborg is pretty far out there.
>he's free to go where he wants when he wants
Soaring high and far on Torchiro's wings. That little potato doesn't get nearly enough credit.
>dropping a 40 episode series 6 episodes in and thinking you can call Oscar a shit character
At least see it to the end so you can definitively call her a shit character instead of going off 6/40 episodes.
>not even futa.
Such a missed opportunity, all that wasted Antoinette NTR...
>Now that REALLY goes against the grain of Harlock.
Yeah, it's pretty shocking when you see it in the manga,
the Death Shadow appears to help the Yamato getting out of a sector full of asteroids, Susumu goes on board the Death Shadow to speak with the captain but all he sees are people wearing black robes, the captain of the ship appears to be shocked when he sees Susumu but he quickly dismiss him giving him his blessing, once they get out the Death Shadow Analyzer comments on the fact that the only bioemission he caught were those of the Captain, and were far too weak for a normal human being, meaning he must have been a cyborg with a crew of robots.
It's really a strong part of the manga, if you get the chance you should read it Anon.
>That little potato doesn't get nearly enough credit.
Tochiro is what gives Harlock the strength to kep on fighting, together with his crew and Miyuu.
She is pretty autistic but she gets a lot better later on, Andre still remains a complete fucking beta loser, Robespierre is GOAT.
What do you consider old then? pre 2000 is over 15 years old.
Doesn't apply here because there's a definite end in sight.
The only major changes you could point to as a division are when the bubble collapsed 1991, when analog changed to digital around 2000, and maybe Eva popularizing the late night model. The biggest of those changes is the shift in production. BDs of analog shows from the late 90s are all gonna look awesome while those from the early 00s will always be stuck at 480p.
There's so little anime available from before the bubble economy and introduction of the OVA circa 84/85. If you had to, you could split the analog era around that time, but then you'd need another split later on anyway.
>while those from the early 00s will always be stuck at 480p.
I thought it was 720p? But yeah, that is funny. You could watch some OVA or film from 1995 in 2k or maybe 4K, but these shows will have to be upscaled from 720p.
No, 480p. Because they were mastered in SD. Unless they have super high budgets like GitS, they're gonna look awful when you go to upscale them, and you can only upscale them to 720p.
There being a definite end doesn't preclude a sunk-cost fallacy; it's about wasting further time (or resources) in order to justify the time & resources you've already put into something.
If he doesn't feel the last six episodes are worth his time, he shouldn't watch them.
I finished watching Outlaw Star a few days ago. Shit was alright. I watched the first episode of Dragon Ball but I can't fucking stand it. I know it gets better but god damn.
>There are no good doujins with Aisha
>Only Pal-Comix trash
Why is my fetish the one that Japan doesn't have?
I know your feeling well, anon. I've taken to trying to recreate Aisha in H-games that allow you to customize characters but it just can never match up to the original.
>reading manga published after 1950
If anyone talked about that old shit favorably maybe I'd watch it. As of now I can't name anything that old except Dragon Ball and Lupin. It's not like that old shit has any discoverability.
If you want people to watch this shit talk about it. Be the old man sitting on his open porch talking about the good old days.
You are not telling me you forgot one of the most memorable episode of RoV.
I recently watched Wings of Honneamise, and Galaxy Express 999.
They were pretty okay. I was really expecting more, but they were worth the watch.
Do you think Oscar
let herself get killed by the canons and riflemen? Just the way she was absently minded looking at the birds rather than paying attention to the battle is what leads me to believe so. I think she just didn't care anymore and wanted to be with Andre.
Also watched Utena recently and I could very well see what people would say it draws inspiration and parallels from ROV, especially considering Oscar and Utena
both get laid on episode 33.
If you watch old stuff you can get the references in new stuff.
>You are not telling me you forgot one of the most memorable episode of RoV.
I clearly do. Wasn't he
watching over her grave at the very end?
>I think she just didn't care anymore and wanted to be with Andre.
Don't forget that
she had tuberculosis and was coughing up blood, she was destined to die soon anyway.
I also thought that
Oscar never got laid, didn't Andre come close but stop when he realized he was forcing himself on her?
Watching ZZ. Leina and Roux Louka are fucking hot. I really miss Kamille though.
That's what I felt too, which makes
Oscar's deathall the more tragic for me.
She certainly did. Both in the anime and in the manga. What you are remembering is that night when André
I should probably rewatch ZZ sometime.
I marathoned the entire thing in one day and have since forgotten most of it.
EG's new release is a pretty good opportunity to do that.
I'm not saying old anime isn't worth watching, I'm saying that us "millenials" that haven't seen to old anime don't know about it because no body talks about it. It doesn't get exposure. People go back and watch old movies like Casa Blanca and Citizen Kane because they're heralded as the greatest shit in cinema.They get exposure. Old animes don't. I'm asking people (like the person I responded to originally) to tell us about them. Tell us the good ones. We'll watch them. We're just ignorant. Posting "I wish you guys would leave" rather than "You think that's old!? You should watch ____!" isn't enlightening. It's just crotchety shouting. Share what you love rather than bitch about what you hate.
I'm watching Ashita no Joe 2 (masterpiece), Lupin III Pink Jacket (great animation, pic related but writing feels dull compared to green and red) and Rose of Versailles (excellent so far).
I also bought a collection of four classic films
dubbed into Swedish: Macross, Leda, God Bless Dan Cougar and Toward the Earth
Is this copypasta?
Well, I don't know what to tell you man.
Unless you only started watching anime yesterday, if you don't know of a bunch of old series by now, you're probably never going to. They're mentioned all the time.
Interesting difference between the anime and manga regarding
André assaulting Oscar: in the anime, the incident leaves a huge gap between them and Oscar leaves the Royal Guard alone. André joins her regiment against everyone's wishes and the two eventually make up when André is injured. In the manga, however, the two just shrug off the assault like it was nothing and André follows Oscar because her dad tells him to.
>in a thread with 165 posts discussing and mentioning old anime
>still need me to tell you what to watch
Well, it seems you were just a retard all along, no wonder you don't know any old series.
