Which anime are old school to you?

I was shocked because someone told me lately "Cowboy Bebop" is an old school anime... For me old school is "Bubblegum Crisis" OVA, "Rose of Versailles" or "Yattaman". I don't know, maybe I'm just old too (NOPE xD). Does that mean Neon Genesis Evangelion is old school too?

You just need to expand the way back machine a bit. A lot of what I put was from near or before I was born. ;p

I'm with you on this one! =p As far as I'm concerned, unless it was made before I was born (or at least when I was a kid), it's not old school. *laughs* I can't see calling any series less than at least 20 years old "old school". Maybe I just look at things funny too. But I know a lot of people who seem to believe anime is a "new thing" and don't realize there are older series.

1998 by no means qualifies as old school. Old, yes, but not old school. The animation style is still for all effects and purposes the same. Whereas say Speed Racer which was what thirty years old back when Cowboy Bebop was made... yes that qualifies as old school. The animation styles, heck even the medium is different now. Gone are the days when everything was hand drawn. Now it's... still technically hand drawn but it's almost entirely digital now.
