    Today I extend my thoughts on a comment I made previously in my "Best of Anime 2018" video about the lack of modern classic Anime, since non of you could agree on it in the comments section.

    In the manga world there's also a list of "classics" (in 2ch for example) so maybe how these are chosen out might shed some light to the definition of "classic" and modern classic in Anime? One major difference is that manga as a medium is more resistant to time. While the style changes, old manga can be of same/better quality than the new ones, it's all up to the individual writer. That's why there's "must read" list but not really a "classic" list.
    "Must reads" seems to be judged in three qualities: Consistency, Uniqueness & Delivery.
    Consistency being if the story/character is consistent _and the story ends when end is due_. This because publisher forcing writer to continue because of popularity is so common. (Naruto and Bleach if for example, not considered good because of that, while Parasyte/Kiseijuu and even Death Note is.)
    Uniqueness is well, uniqueness. Could be anything from the story,(Parasyte, Suicide Island, The Silent Service, Erased) the concept (Planetes, Space brothers, Bokurano), the artstyle (Kaiji, Jojo).
    Delivery: A cliche Shonen manga can still be a master piece if delivered right (HxH), and a bland story or concept can still be good with good character development (Dai's great adventure, I am a hero, Rookies) and portrayal (Black jack, Yotsubato, Onani-master Kurosawa etc) of characters.
    If it has something to offer hat is unique, consistent and with good delivery it's hard for followers to emulate that without being a "copy" of it, and there you got a "classic" manga/anime. (my 5 cents)

    I think a lot of it is lack of conclusion from even the most well received anime in the last few years. Most animes lately are manga adaptions, greenlit for a season or two, which are still ongoing so this results in a lot them leaving us off with cliffhangers or mostly unresolved narratives. A personal example for me would also be Mob Psycho 100, I absolutely adore this show, but since it is an ongoing work and god only knows if we'll get another season, there is no closure at all. This wasn't as prevalent some decades ago, stuff like Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Eva, etc, you got the whole package to appreciate and reflect upon. This is has become increasingly rare in the current age of Anime.

    I saw NGE last year for the first time, and thought to myself that these people praising it are blinded by nostalgia. It was ok, but not that much.
    As for Legend of the Galactic Heroes, I started watching it and now I cannot thank these old fags enough to not have let the anime community forget about this absolutely incredible show, which I am only 20 episodes in but seems like it will be going to become my favourite anime of all time.

    The moment you said escaflowne Iit brought tears into my eyes. It might not be the best or first popularized isekai anime show but it will always hold a special place in my heart.

    Madoka Magica, Violet Evergarden, Made in Abyss are modern classics. But I do see your point.
    There is SO MUCH anime, but there is SO LITTLE that is of high quality.

    I want to thank you. It was here where I heard of LOGH for the first time and it was one great experience watching it. I was watching it at the same time as Game of Thrones was approaching end and I was way more excited to see the ending of 20 year old series that truly has an ending with subverting expectation in comparison to GoTs forced and illogical decisions in story only made to shock people watching it in pubs. I hope that books will have better conclusion to the GoT story.
    It would be great if during our lifetimes we see another epic classic like Legends of the Galactic Heroes.

    I would argue that Devil Man Crybaby is a modern classic. Damn that shit is top tier. But that could be due to the fact that it’s based off of a really old manga. There is a lot of great stuff out it’s so hard to choose 😭😩

    the one anime that will always stick with me has got to be Spice and Wolf, it was the gateway drug to my anime addiction and something about it was just so enchanting to me so itll always be my #1 :D

    This is stupid how could a anime be a classic... it had to be somne years gone to become a classic so how can you tell what the nowdays generation remember when they get older an think back to the good old times? only the time can tell us what is a classic anime an which one is not.
    The next thing anime has become more common i´t is mainstream now and the studios produce much mainstream.
    But with the impact on the society .... yeah its lacking much.

    So now my list what might become a classic.
    Kimetsu no Yaiba/Demon Slayer
    Hero Academia
    Asobi Asobase
    Chios schoolroad
    ......and many many more i love them all im sure there is something coming what is worth to call a clasic.

    • XJ9
      XJ9 15 ngày trước

      @Orpheus if you think so... Time will tell us. Hunter X Hunter got good potential or maybe Vinland Saga it's a sensless discussion we will see in the future and might remember them.

    • Orpheus
      Orpheus 15 ngày trước

      Na, none of those is going to become a classic lol.
      Kimetsu no Yaiba, HunterXHunter, Hero academia are entry level shonen anime like DBZ, Naruto before them. They are always popular, with a few cool fight scenes but in the end they are always the same thing. People who grew up with them will always love them, but in 10 years there will be new popular shonen that will replace those.
      Dororo started great and I thought it would be something thought provoking with great art,... But it wasn't, it went downhill very quick.
      Asobi Asobase is truly a great anime and one of the best comedies of the past years. But regretfully, there weren't many people who were watching it...
      There are very, very few anime that are coming out today, that will stand the test of time. The overwhelming majority of anime is average at best, disappointing at worst. I haven't seen anything that truly stands above the others.
      A show that might become a classic would be something like Violet Evergarden, Madoka Magica, Made in Abyss.

    Yu Yu Hakusho is such a fucking amazing anime if you want some badass fighting. I always recommend to newer fans. Also Eureka Seven is a phenominal mech/rom/bad ass show.

    No such thing as a modern classic. Need time to determine a classic. In the realm of books the rule of thumb is a hundred years.

    Why the fuck is it that your videos are all so funny and shit until the last two minutes and then I get hit with some kind of life lesson or some shit. Your videos end and I'm like dammit I should reconsider everything I've done in my life so far. Or maybe it's even just your voice and the way you say it sounding wise and shit. Dammit.

    i watched 80% of the classics in my childhood and most of them were dubbed and i didn't know what anime really was that time
    it was epic tbh
    and now i can rewatch them in japanese , i hope i live till i complete them all and feel the joy again
    also new animes are also great , i watch them when they finish airing
    so watching older anime or previous if i may say while waiting for new shows is a great experience for someone who started anime in 2014 like me

    The lack of modern classic anime:
    -too formulaic and oversaturated for any genre that brings in money.
    -manga/light novel advertising actively aiming to *not* have a satisfying and impactful conclusion so you buy the source material.
    -fans that seem to actively hate on series' other people enjoyed, ensuring there is no consesus on what actually is and isn't quality, impactful anime.

    Clearly lacking the Japanese perspective!

    Here are some strong contenders with some potential if they get developed correctly.

    Vinland Saga
    Made in Abyss
    Heroic Legend of Arslan
    Mahoutsukai no Yome

    Also, you forgot.. Monogatari is the most obvious modern classic we've got : P. You absolutely can't argue that it's not a modern classic ;D. I'd recommend it right alongside legend of the galactic heroes, cowboy bebop, code geass, ghost in the shell, trigun, and all of those others = ).

    A modern classic movie is definitely Your Name.

    Drifters would have definitely been ultra interesting if it hadn't gotten abandoned : (.

    Don't forget that we also got 3-gatsu no Lion, which competes with the likes of Aria. Saiki is easily going to be a comedy classic right up there with Lucky Star.

    We think there are no classics among modern anime because they are always few and far between. I've pointed out an easy 8, many of which are only from the last 3 years.
