    The above anime fails >_<

    I wouldn't say old school cannot be beaten, because there are very good new anime's as it were that are on par and ever surpass many of the older anime's.

    i misunderstood. i thought we were supposed to post animes that are so bad, that they show that nothing is better than old school.

    here's a few....
    AKIRA
    Fist of the North Star
    Vampire Hunter D
    Dagger of Kamui
    Astro Boy.

    How's that to get the old school debate going?

    but Fist animation wasn't as good I don't think.

    Devilman had a much darker theme to it than Fist, Fist was just lame lol

    allright I will agree on the animation. Point-Met.

    first Ghost in the shell had computer animation didn't it? I think that kind of disqualifies it.
