Sometimes I think I should go back and watch old anime. I realistically don't have time at the present, but humour me, and tell me anyways. Maybe I'll somehow find the time over the Christmas break or something.
Fist of the North Star seems like the standout option that gets referenced all over the place, and I wonder how it holds up. At the very least, ATATATATATATATATATA seems pretty fun.
Lupin III or Lupin the Third seems like another anime that was in its heyday back in the...70s? I wonder if the humour is just really hokey by today's standards, but damn if that MGS version of the opening isn't great.
Also, man, that fucking music.
Brave Raideen or Raideen The Brave would be cool to watch, if only because I guess it's the first mecha anime ever where the mech exists because of some weird spritual/mystical shit, and not because of the usual science and engineering reasons. So it's basically the forerunner to Neon Genesis Evangelion and RahXephon, which I like a great deal. Raideen probably not so big on the angst department, but I guess purely from a historical standpoint, it would be neat to see how they handled it.
