This is the place to discuss, recommend or review anime that is considered a bit retro.
For clarification: Anime made after 2000 should not be discussed here.
The reason for this is that the year 2000 is a nice cut-off point; the anime boom was at it's peak and animation was becoming digitised...
I thought that this would be a great topic to open up some debate.
I'm a mature student of nearly 30 years of age, I have a part-time job, pay extortionate rent etc. In other words, I am pretty poor as my income is extremely limited and most goes on my rent (such is life).
When I first joined...
So I'm doing a little bit of a clearout at the moment and would like to sell some of my anime DVDs and other related goods. Will add more when I can!
Items now listed on eBay all starting at 99p. Have a look!

Sailor Moon to get a new anime series in summer 2013!
As a big fan of Sailor Moon, I'm happy with this announcement. But I worry they may moe-ify the designs! Wonder if they are going for a remake or a completely new anime series.
There seems to be some topics about learning Japanese around the forum - so I thought it would be a good idea to create a general topic area for anything related in this area.
Share your experiences, progress or updates on the learning process of Japanese. Feel free to also post...
Post your favourite themes/tunes from any game/era because there's not enough love for game music.
I'll just post a few from the 16-Bit era to get the topic started!

This is an area which I don't venture into much - as there is such a vast amount out there. I'm just looking for something which is good to watch, although mileage may vary!
I've watched (for those who are interested):
Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon - Enjoyed this a lot despite it being aimed...
I'm not talking about anime that are unlicensed in general - but those that were shown on U.K. TV and just didn't make it to DVD transition (let alone Blu-Ray!)
Sometimes I wish I had kept my VHS tapes!
I remember some classics back in the day when Sci-Fi channel and others had anime on...
Came across this article on Daily Mail today:
In Sweden, a comic translator is in court due to the police seizing his 'child pornography' collection which consisted of 'indecent'...
Apologies if a similar topic has been posted before!
This thought of separate vs thin paks occurred to me while I was looking through my anime collection. Most of the DVDs I own are separate volumes - as was the norm when I bought most of my anime. Now it is more often the case that thin paks...
I'm throwing this up as a general discussion point.
In your view has anime recently been giving great quality titles or is something of a lackluster moot point?
For me personally, I struggle to find titles that I'd want to watch. I might just have my rose tinted spectacles on permanently...
Just thought I'd say hello. I'm not technically new - but I haven't posted here for a few years and was out of the anime scene for a while.
I'm probably a bit out of touch with the new anime series/seasons that are currently running, so be gentle :P But I'm slowly but surely...
Rather than drag my old art thread from beyond the ages back up, I'll make a new one.
I haven't drawn a picture in ages, but found myself doodling on good old MS Paint. I was going to leave this one uncoloured - but even one tone is better than none!
Here is my made up character called...
Just watched this and felt the need to rant! :wink:
Much like The Island, V for Vendetta was one of the films which had potential to be something epic and then ended up falling flat on it's own ideas of greatness.
In VFV Pseudo-Britain aka England, is full of US styled TV news, US styled...
Post what openings made you thought was great or made you go wow! List your favourites!
1) Final Fantasy VIII - Dramatic music, gunblade fighting and mysterious text! When I first saw it on a demo disk years and years ago, I wanted it!
Much in the same vein as my PC topic, I am looking for some good TV to watch - because I only watch it for Home & Away and Neighbours! I might be missing out on a good series!
I haven't found anything good to watch since the 1996-ish series like Bad Girls, X-Files, Xena Warrior Princess and...
I have decided to shed more light onto Sailor Moon, but especially series 3 named Sailor Moon S (Super) aka. Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon S. Most people think it's exactly like the first two series, where Sailor Moon saves the day with a monster of the week. Well it is, but then it isn't.
It's that time of year again!
Will anyone else be watching this cheesefest? I had my hopes that Belgium might make it to the final - sadly not the case!
I like the Malta and Sweden entries although I don't know if they'll win it. The favourites seem to be Finland with thier (horrible) heavy...
I just got myself a new PC after 6 years and I am keen to catch up on what I have been missing! :wink:
Apart from the Sims 2, Half Life 2 and the various mmorpgs - what good games should I be looking to get?
