My roommate loves and highly recommends Legend of the Galactic Heroes, that's mid to late 80's. I can't speak on how much you'll enjoy it though.


As a comparison to P&S, or in general?

http://rockmelonsoda.com/forum/index.php?topic=669.0


Fun fact: I'm a failed excuse for a human being, cause I don't think I ever finished that series. I've gone over ten years saying "Oh yeah, I'll finish that soon!" Then I forget about it. Over...10...years. What's worse is that I could finish the entire thing in one sitting. Goddamn...I win at life. Same goes for Lodoss War and a few others I can't remember.

Er...brb, Macross...

I thought you were asking for good 80's shows to watch?

And no, not in comparison to P&S. The two shows couldn't be anymore different. My roommate would never watch P&S in a million years, even if you paid him.

That makes me sad. It looks like such a good show.

Oh, no. I meant old shows that had that crazy, stylish, and a bit controversial demeanor of P&S (only a bit controversial because the usual subject-matter contrasts the appearance of the show). I'm really interested to see how each one differs, and which one I'd end up preferring. I'm gonna check out the Legend of the Galactic Heroes anyway though. :D

I did not realize Tuxedo Mask puts on top hats so gentlemanly.

Fun fact: I used to wish I was Tuxedo Mask. For the sole purpose of wooing girls. But I would never think any farther ahead than "Drop in from out of nowhere, pose, and~".

That's pretty much all you would need to do, really. The situation would likely take care of itself at that point. Because you are Tuxedo Mask.

Macross Plus. I don't like giant robot anime but it was wonderful.  Mainly because of the bits involving Sharon Apple.

Side note: I am changing the title of this thread from "retro" to "old school."

Retro implies that it's new thing that's a revival or a throwback to something else, which none of this is. (As in, Mega Man 9 is "retro," Mega Man 2 is old school.)

While it shouldn't be me who says this, because I haven't seen a lot of great shows either, it is an awesome show and you should watch it! ;D

Great characters and really cool stories. The soundtrack is simply amazing...

Cowboy Bebop is a masterpiece. People like to hate on it because they think it makes them look hip to think differently, but it truly was a fantastic show. It actually deserves to be as popular as it is. You should definitely watch it.

I watched it out of order. Don't do that. Also don't watch Haruhi in the "right" order. The end is in the middle.

I am going to throw in Mobile Suit Gundam and Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam. I always thought that those two series were extremely well done and drawn considering their age. It still surprises me that almost 20 years ago, artists were able to draw that fine of detail with limited computer aided coloring and graphics. Plus you can't deny the allure of Char Aznable.

Have you seen 08th MS team? Its my favorite out of all the gundams.

Fun fact: I used to wish I was Tuxedo Mask. For the sole purpose of wooing girls. But I would never think any farther ahead than "Drop in from out of nowhere, pose, and~".

Fun Fact: You are Tuxedo Mask MM. You woo women women wherever you go.

Apparently the transformation can also be done in live action

Also, I liked Cowboy Bebop and want more series like that.
