    Default Can you claim to be a true anime fan?

    Since I've started to live away from Japan, I've met a lot of people who've claimed to be great fans of anime, but never have I met a foreigner who knows the classics. People seem to only know of the highstream ones that have come out over the past ten years. Either that, or extremely old series that they've watched as a child, but something I've never done because they never release such old shows anymore in Japan.

    There are anime series that have been going on for years in Japan and the majority of Japanese people know of such series (this includes the young and the old). I would now like to ask if there are people here in this forum (who aren't from Japan), who could give me a list of these anime series.

    NB. Anime and manga series from the past that are known by the majority of Japanese people would do as well.

    For once, I would like to nod and say, Yes! That's well known in Japan! hehe

    Mobile suit Gundam. Still the best Gundam Series.
    Voltron. I actually have box sets.
    JoJo's Bizzare Adventure.
    WRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY. Need more be said?

    Thats all I got for old-school anime, as most of the old...old-school anime just isn't entertaining to me anymore.

    Do you mean anime that are still airing and have been airing for a long time, anime that had aired for a long time been over? Or just some of the old classics or really popular shows? Something like Doraemon maybe? Or long running manga series like Hajime no Ippo?
    Whatever, here's my list:

    Tetsuwan Atom
    Cyborg 009 (the original)
    Rose of Versailles
    Doraemon
    Voltron
    Getter Robo
    Mazinger
    Dirty Pair
    Battle of the Planets
    Captain Tsubasa
    Mach Go Go Go
    Space Battleship Yamato
    The Guyver (the original)
    Gigantor
    Ranma 1/2
    Galaxy Express 999
    Revolutionary Girl Utena
    Mobile Suit Gundam (0079)
    Macross
    Lupin III
    3000 Leagues in Search of Mother
    Grendizer
    Cutey Honey (the original 1973 one...the new one wasn't that good...)

    Out of curiosity, does this mean Lupin and Speed Racer aren't the type of classics you're thinking of?

    Yes! You've got the idea (seeing your list)
    As long as it's an anime or manga series that are well known in Japan it doesn't matter if it's stopped airing all together
    By the way, I agree that the new Cutie Honey series was horrible (I watched it as a kid lol)

    Lupin has had anime series in the past and still has new movies on air every once in a while and well... everyone in Japan knows Lupin! It's common to see people immitating him lol but I've never heard of Speed Racer


    I was going to see what everyone writes before I write my list but seeing as I'm just getting people confused. I'll just write a list out of the top of my head.

    Doraemon (the new voice actors are horrible btw)
    Sazae-san
    Chibimaruko-chan
    Arare-chan
    Tensai Bakabon
    Ashita no Joe
    Furanda-su no Inu
    Uchuusenkan Yamato
    Ginga Tetsudou 999
    Garasu no Kamen
    Kochi Kame (Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari Kouen mae hashutsujo)
    - over 150 volumes of manga
    Black Jack (generally Tezuka Osamu series)
    Crayon Shin-chan (probably not that known to older generation but popular)

    Apologies for writing the titles in Japanese. I'm not sure what they call it in English for some of them so I went ahead hehe

    @royal_ken

    OMG, you don't know what Speed Racer is? XD Which reminds me, I think I watched that before I saw Yaiba... I keep forgetting that it's anime!

    So, my list:
    Voltes V <== I hate it.
    Kimba <== Very cute!!!
    Yaiba <== I always thought this was my first anime.
    Speed Racer <== So that's anime too? XD
    the drama things like Remy, Dog of Flanders, Sarah and Cedie
    Dragonball <== Goku was very cute ^^ Back in the day when he thought the 4-star dragonball was his grandpa or something.
    Ghost in the Shell (movie) <== was that the 80's? I forgot.
    ...many more I can recall but don't remember the title right now.

    Note: I won't claim to be a true anime fan though XD

    (PM option is off. I refuse to hear people whine.)

    >_< I just looked up Speed Racer but this is what I meant in my first post! I've never even heard of the Japanese title or any of the characters. It certainly is an old series but I don't think it's that well known (or they would have talked about it on TV shows in Japan). Then again, it's hard to justify what I'm saying because I'm an individual hmm someone back me up!

    NB. I'm more of a manga person to begin with so I'm not claiming to be a true anime fan either lol

    The Japanese title is Mach Go Go Go. From what I have read, it was fairly popular in Japan. Hence why it was licensed and brought to the States at a time when anime was not as popular here as it is currently.

Being a "true" fan of anime certainly does not mean you have to know or have to had seen the classics.


    Thanks for the sig Xey Oiz ^.^

    This forum isn't a test. I just wanted to know if people knew what's common in Japan and I used the "true anime fan" to attract people's attention. There's no need to take the title so literally. Think of it as a title on the back of a cereal box.

    I'm not exactly an anime fan myself so it's not like I'm trying to flaunt that I know classics heck I DON'T know a lot of the old ones myself. I didn't set up this thread to start a debate on the essence of being an anime fan. Does it really matter if you're a true anime fan? Will my forum cause people to lose their self-esteem because they think they aren't one? It's nothing serious like that so please try to understand that.

    I don't think that this thread is about being an anime fan at all. Surely most of the anime and manga that you mentioned are simply culturally very popular things. You can say to almost any Japanese person around my age, 'omae ha mou sindeiru' (Do NOT do this) and they'll know what you're talking about, but they won't necessarily be 'anime fans'

    Everyone should enjoy Lupin III and Dragon ball - they're fantastic for their own merit. But perhaps not everyone should be able to tell you how much Gaogaigar weighs in metric tonnage.

    Umm, thats all I can think of at the moment
    That is a sexy list.
    I'm quite impressed. In a world of bleach naruto etc, there's still people that enjoy this stuff do.

    I'm a big fan of Hokutonoken,
    Dragon Ball,
    UC Gundam,
    Xabungle,
    Original Macross

    I started reading the black jack manga also - really enjoying it, but very hard to import over from Japan

    You can't be a true movie fan without having seen the classics of yesteryear. Otherwise, how will you understand the progression of camera techniques and difference on stortytelling emphasis? Citizen Kane, the Marx Borothers... you can't fully apreciate modern films if you haven't seen the classics. It's a Wonderful Life is amazing, but many people wouldn't watch it because it's "in black and white."

    The same goes for anime. If you can't appreciate Hokuto no Ken, Bubblegum Crisis, Gunbuster, original Macross, Galaxy Railroad 999, Nausicaa, Space Adventure Cobra, etc, then you're not a true anime fan. You're just a fan of a fleeting style of current anime, which will be washed away and replaced completely with CG in ten years' time anyway.

    Nothing wrong with being narrow minded, of course. I certainly am when it comes to food. Not anime, though, as I very much enjoy a small amount of actually good modern stuff, like Azumanga Daioh, Basilisk, Ouran Host Club and Mushishi.

    I know that some of these shows aren't considered anime. But I still watch them... Plus I believe that they're classics in Japan.

    Kikaida
    Ultraman
    Kamen Rider


    And as for anime.

    Bubblegum Crisis, Iczelion, Project A-Ko, Ranma 1/2, Lodoss War, Ronin Warriors, Doraemon, Robotech, Lupin III, YuYu Hakusho, Dragon Ball, Voltes V, Voltron[LionForce], Saint Seiya, Bastard! ...

    I can't think of any more. Those are some I appreciate though.
    Hopefully I'm on the right track. If not.. Maybe someone can guide me without being an *******.

    People knowing what's common in Japan... hmm. But, what about modern anime that isn't very well known to most people, but is fairly known in Japan? Do you mean even if you know modern anime that's well-known in Japan, but you don't know classic anime, then you're not a true anime fan?

    I already answered a similar question to this and you've quoted it yourself. I will change the name of this thread if it's causing people to get touchy by the phrase "true anime fan"
