Got any recommendations for an old school fan looking to get into new school?

Some of the stuff I used to watch:

Gundam Wing
Dragonball Z
Vampire Hunter D
Twilight of the Dark Master

Recently I watched Berserk, which was dope, I like the manga and the games it inspired (Dark Souls).

Trying to find something that has fight scenes, giant robots, love story, war, etc. Definitely a sucker for giant robots/space opera and love story. But I also like low magic/high magic fantasy.

Have not. I’ll check it out.

What about a space bountyhunter?

Cowboy Bebop is a classic.

Gundam Unicorn

Specifically the seven episode OVA and not the 22 episode regular series.

If you want something more space opera then Terra e… would fit the bill. Not quite new school new school, but definitely not old school.

My list if anyone cares:

Alright, since you enjoy Dragonball like myself here’s some related to that:

  • Dragonball Super (english dub isn’t quite finished yet, but it’s getting close 20 episodes left)
  • My hero Academia (same sort of stuff as Dragonball, just done better IMO)
  • One Punch Man
  • Mob Psycho 100

Dororo and Kimetsu no Yaiba are both currently airing shows about demon slaying and are pretty good.

Goblin Slayer is great if you don’t mind a bit of gore

Youjo Senki aka Saga of Tanya the Evil is a fantastic show. Has some magic, lots of war, and a fantastic MC.

The canon Tenchi Muyou series’ have some of that space opera, giant robots, and a well done harem. But they’re pretty old school.
The order to watch them in is as follows:

  • Tenchi Muyou Ryo-Ohki
  • Tenchi Muyou Ryo-Ohki 2
  • Tenchi Muyou GXP
  • Tenchi Muyou Ryo-Ohki 3
  • Tenchi Muyou War on Geminar
  • Tenchi Muyou Ryo-Ohki 4 (this one is skippable for the most part, just explains the extremely complex family tree and events that have led up to where we are now. Solid setup for the next thing to be released though).

Slayers is another classic with magic and some love involved.
Order goes:

  • Slayers
  • Slayers Next
  • Slayers Try
  • Slayers Revolution
  • Slayers Evolution-R

And there’s some more of what you may like on my ptw list, but since I haven’t seen them yet myself I can’t comment on any of them.

And of course Everyone should watch Made in Abyss. Just a masterpiece of a show.


I liked the first half of Dororo and then it fell off, KnY is going pretty good so far

Damn, epic list! Thanks man :smiley:

I will report back my findings.
