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

xD Exept Ranma 1/2 I agree with you ;P And I always tought that series like Evangelion or Bebob was something new for anime industry so they can't be compared with old style anime...

Uh... but Ranma 1/2 the anime started in 1989, so I still count it as old school. Plus look at my age, I was a youngin when that series was going on.

Yes seriously. And what would Astroboy, King Arthur, Speed Racer, Princess Knight, Kimba and Original Gundam be classified as? Prehistoric?

yeah cowboy bebop is pretty old, along with macross and street fighter. Oh and don't forget the oldest of all: astroboy! :P I'm not a huge fan of older anime.

It is old, but not that old to be called old school... Could you compare it to any '80 anime? I don't think so;)

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.

Yeah, many fans now thinks that every anime that doesn't have visible 3d effects is old school _

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.
