What is Your Favorite Anime?

Day 1,981, 00:00 Published in Japan Japan by BoredomsEdge
Out with the OLD in WITH the NEW??

Pop. Culture of late has been taken by storm with the appearance of the art form we lovingly call Anime and Manga. Each year the appearance of new stories/characters grow exponentially.

With the first issue, I'm going to pose a question to any of you possible readers out there: Which do you prefer, the newer manga/anime (i.e bleach, naruto) or the older, shall i say more original versions (i.e Dragonball, Pokemon)?

This question can be looked at in many various ways, we can view it in terms of storyline, artwork, ideology. I leave these point up to any possible viewers.

I base future articles on any responses you may have.

A proper person, like me, can't answer such a simple yet hard question. I've more or less hit my 300 watched anime series(I know it's a bit lower then a lot of others) and i continue to watch a decent amount of series from each new batch of anime per season of the year, and well you can't just simply answer who is THE best.

Like Hizaya Wold said, it is difficult to say who anime i like most. There are some i see on the same level.

Btw, if someone say to an mainstream anime it's the best anime. Did that person really saw a lot of anime?^^

There are really good anime nowadays (story/characters wise, bc I don't care about artwork as long as it's not hurting my eyes), but there are also great older anime. I prefer the older ones, probably because less series got budget for the anime, so there was a better selection in the first place. It can also be so because I got used to the 'style' of the old-days anime (80's of XX to early 00's of XXI century)...

Well my point is: its hard to find something not overloaded with moe nowadays. And even if anime doesn't have moe overload, there is much more vulgarity in anime now comparing to the old days..As for comedy/romance fan it's really hard to find something suiting my taste from current season.

School Rumble was one of the first series I watched and while I agree there are series with better story, the thing I loved was the brilliant character development and quite complicated relations between them.
I'm currently reading Hatsukoi Limited, and while overally it has much simmiliraties with the SR, it lacks spontaneous humour and is kinda vulgar which doesn't fit that well in romance/comedy genre.

Speaking of moe, don't get me bad, I can watch ecchi/harem, but comparing nowadays ecchi to old timer like Love Hina, they doesn't look too good.

On the other hand we get nice series like OreImo which please my otaku senses and quite enjoyable romance series but 'the romance got turned into harem' ,
also I like new Key productions like Angel Beats! and Little Busters! than the older Air/Kanon/Clannad.

As well as VN (while not many of em gets turned into anime) get quite good story and often touch many taboo/society problems which is quite nice change from the old repetitive stories patterns.

imo, LB isn't that good compared to Clannad... I mean, the story is meh, comedy is quite good but the comedy and the routes are pretty normal. Original storyline, that I can say though.

I agree its hard to just pick one, but some of the few of my favorites are Beck Mongolian Chop Squad, Samurai Champloo, Wolf's Rain, Black Lagoon, Hajime No Ippo, School Days, High school of the Dead, and Bakemonogatari.

Plenty of older ones I like also, but its hard to get into them after watching so many series mainly because the classics are what established the popular cliches you see repeated in MANY series.

So you're asking which one we prefer old school anime/manga series or new school, well I prefer new school. Also I agree with the those who said that it's hard to decide which is the best anime, especially if you watched a lot of anime series. Anime rules !
