You've probably already seen it but gunbuster is a must watch.

Rurouni Kenshin is a nice attempt at making a story around Meiji Japan War History.  Expect a lot of absurd sword physics and speeches, but whatever Saito does is gold.  Also expect to not see the last and final arc that the series was made for, but the Kyoto arc was still fun.

Also, Evangelion anyone?

Kenshin was a good show. I saw it up to the ending a few times when I was younger.

Also, Evangelion anyone?

Started that 4 or 5 times now, can't get into it at all =/

How about Blue Seed anyone watched it?

Oh, I thought you said Blue Gender.  That show, of which I was thinking, has lots of screaming and cabbage people.  I still need to finish it.

I also still need to finish Wolf's Rain, but all I ever do is listen to its soundtracks.

From what I saw of it, Black Jack's pretty good.

Cyborg 009, Kikaider somewhat too.  009 is a nice team show, the 2001 series has some good character episodes, especially with Joe.  Also, nice music.

Oh shit, I had forgotten about 009. I saw a bit of it back when I was a kid but never got into it.

Finished Top wo Narae (Gunbuster), really enjoyed it.

Never thought I'd live to see the day when Evangelion was considered old school...

Well if we're classifying "new" as being in the last 10 years...

"Classic" is different, though. Cowboy Bebop is definitely a classic. NGE I would say is classic. But old school? Ehhh...

When I hear "old school" I think of stuff like SDF Macross, Space Battleship Yamato, Lupin, Akira, Venus Wars, that sort of thing. 80s stuff. When anime was just starting to dip its toes into US waters.

I'm being technical though, don't let that derail the thread.

I still have not watched Akira.  Why is this, I don't know.

*Checks Netflix*

*No streaming*

Oh that's why.  But when it does...

I agree with Topher, but we have different points of reference than yall do. Anyway.
If we're going by the 10 year mark, I'd recommend Haibane Renmei. it's by the same guy that did Lain (ABe) but I've always felt it was a better series.
