Quack (R) (L) Ranma (R) (L) Kiki's Delivery Service Its a Ghibli film and it has a flying witch girl in it. 1990 (L-3, G-0, M-1) (13 points) (M) Record of Lodoss War best High Fantasy title (still stands strong but its corny as hell) (L) Samurai Pizza Cats (R) (L) Nadia: Secret of Blue Water (R) (L) Robin Hood no Daibouken (R) 1990 (L-3, G-0, M-0) (3 points) (L) 3x3 Eyes (R) (L) Yokoyama Mitsuteru Sangokushi (R) (L) Otaku no Video One of the earliest otaku culture anime.Sort of a documentary on the growing number of otakus, this short series was in order to show how some people really loved anime.It also has a story of sorts but its just there for the heck of it. A pumped up on action and fantasy short OVA series. (L) Yu Yu Hakusho Before Bleach, there was Hakusho to show ghosts beating the crap out of each other. The first harem comedy that became a major hit at its prime. 1993 (L-5, G-1, M-1) (18 points) (M) Slam Dunk great Sports/Comedy title (still stands strong) (G) Ninja Scroll great action/gore movie (its gore is no longer that likable plus Sword of the Stranger is far more mature) (L) Irresponsible Captain Tylor (R) (L) Dragon Half (R) (L) Jo Jo's Bizarre Adventure A dark fighting shounen that was good back then but feels very simplistic today.
For this year, Amagami SS and Yosuga no Sora are the ones I think will changed the dating sim genre.Amagami with its multiple stories and Yosuga no Sora with its controversial scenes and stories.PSG's interesting graphic is another one worth mentioning.It probably feels generic now and especially if you have watched lots of Duck Tales or One Piece.
1983 (L-6, G-2, M-0) (12 points) (G) Armored Trooper Votoms first Real Robots title (too grim and low on action for most to care but it has its charm) (G) Barefoot Gen great anti-war movie (turned obsolete by Grave of the Fireflies) (R) (L) Plawres Sanshirou (R) (L) Super Dimension Century Orguss (R) (L) Genesis Climber Mospeada (R) (L) Igano Kabamaru (R) (L) Dallos (R) (L) Ginga Hyouryuu Vifam (R) Ok, this is amongst the very few retro anime I still really want to watch and yet cant find anywhere. 1984 (L-6, G-2, M-1) (22 points) (M) Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind great angsty movie (still stands strong) (G) Transformers first non-piloted Mecha title (Tengen Toppa Guren Lagann has everything this lacks) (R) (G) Fist of the North Star (Hokuto no Ken) first Fighting Shounen title (it still looks great and original but does grow tiresome in the second part of the series) (R) (L) Shounen Keniya (R) (L) Locke the Superman (R) (L) Super Dimensional Cavalry Southern Cross (R) (L) Birth (R) (L) Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs (R) (L) Video Senshi Lezarion Quite interesting back then.I don't even think that Amagami should be qualified as revolutionary.
