Yet Violet Evergarden wasn't mentioned? I mean, that's potential for a modern classic. Personally I don't think "modern classics" exist, there hasn't been a shift in the industry, in the medium yet, for us to look back on what we see today as "classic". I think eventually the idea of a "classic" will cease to exist because we'll hit the point where everything is competing to be the greatest around, currently we're in a point where innovation is king, and those with the most innovation usually takes a spot further in front than the rest. But do we necessarily *need* new "classics"? I'd settle for memorable experiences than just something we deem as a "classic" just because everyone thought it was the best thing ever. Transistor is a game I wouldn't call a classic but it's a game I'll remember for probably the rest of my days, even in 20+ years, I still wouldn't call it a classic, because even then it'll feel like something new. Maybe it's just that? Maybe we don't see the anime we watch now or anime from the last 5 years or so as "classic" because watching them even now they still feel brand new, like they still feel "timeless"? What happens when the best of the best will feel "timeless" rather than "classic"? It doesn't need to be a "timeless classic", just "timeless". I think a movie like "Logan" will be timeless, mainly because I think it'll age better with time rather than look worse. It's story we could watch in 20+ years and still call "timeless" but I don't anyone will call it "classic". I think "classic" is more so an "era" now rather than a description of something. Anyway, those are just my ramblings on the subject.

This is a really well made video and I enjoyed watching it! I don't know that I agree that classics are dying, though. What we're seeing, outside of anime made just to make money, is an evolution of an art form. People aren't forgetting about classics, they're learning about them from people who have seen them and carrying that knowledge with them when they go to experience a new anime. It won't be the same as people who saw said "classics" for sure, but it never will be, because there's almost always a different feeling when you watched it out of interest and when you watch something because you feel like it's a requirement. But understanding where tropes, styles, and other inspirations came from hasn't diminished the importance of classic movies, for example. And I think it'll be the same way with anime. There are a lot of places online where those who want to better understand can go to do so and there are always people who do.

Most classics aren't adaptations of a manga and can tell a good story in 1-2 seasons. Even if I love Mob or Jojo, I'm not going to say the adaptation is better than the manga, but just complements it, because really the anime is just a driver for manga and merch sales and is riding on the coattails of a story that was designed for a different medium. Then you get adaptation that hurt the original story like Gobbo Killa and Berserk. I'm not gonna put current anime adaptations of manga adaptations or fucking isekai garbage on the same pedestal as something as Bebop or Eva. They are designed differently. I guess my short answer is, "read manga and watch original stories."

The classics are dying because of the community, now they look at anime that can become memes or maintrams ... For example Darling in the franxx would not have become so "famous" if not for the continuous memes, so be careful Gigguk because you too you have a slice of guilt with your continuous videos where with your joke you influence the whole community

It's okay if you forgot what happened in Mob Psycho season 1... Just watch it again! Then go on to season 2. just go watch it seriously.

Modern anime fans consider Attack on Titan, a poorly written anime with cardboard characters that depends almost entirely on shock factor and mystery, an instant classic and a masterpiece. I hardly think there is a point in arguing with them or shine the light on the better anime of the past.

Anime has become too mainstream... on one hand it's good (more of it), but on the other hand it means lower average production quality, PG13 (so streaming sites will accept it), studios catering to western audience instead of producing for Japanese market primarily (the "uniqueness" of anime is diminishing, might as well watch a western animation...)

When you said you were reminded on why classics are indeed classics that just spoke to me. I've been watching anime for 5 years now and it has become a huge part of just who i am. After seeing so many different anime over the last year or so something has just been missing for me, as of late i honestly feel like it's that transition from seeking out new classics and genre defining shows to having seen them and looking/waiting for new one's now.

I honestly love to go back and watch older anime. My favorite periods to watch from are the early 2010's, the 2000's, and the 90's. I'm no expert in older anime, but that doesn't mean I can't recommend an anime from those times. One I recommend is Cardcaptor Sakura. It's losing popularity (slowly), but it's really good. I'm reading the manga right now and I find it both hilarious and heartwarming. I mean, it actually follows a 4th grader that LOOKS like a 4th grader!! Another I can recommend it Nichijou. I know. It's really weird... And it's from 2011... But that doesn't mean it's not good! It's a shounen action series mixed with comedy and... Slice of life? Eh. The last one I would like to recommend is Azumanga Daioh. Read it, watch it, whatever. It's funny.

I recently did something I think is a sorta perfect example of combining both classics and the new stuff: Because of the new Godzilla movie coming out, I saw down and marathonned through all the old movies. And I am really happy I did. Cuz not only was it a lot of fun, but it also just gave me a new level of appreciation for this monster, and how far he has come since the 50's, and all the stuff he has been through. And also just generally for monster movies as a whole.

Classic in reality can mean two things. It can mean: - A show that (was capable of) meaning for you so much that you were 99% sure that if only another person watches it they'll become enlightened - A show that did some deal of the above yet who's impact is more iconic in a technical or purely conceptual way

We are completely spoiled for choice in this age of anime. No one has to watch what anyone else is watching so the community is spread pretty thin in some places. There may be some classics happening right now (or in the last few years) that haven’t aged enough to be considered classic yet. I think attack on titan will be considered a classic. Whether it gets a completed anime or not, just because it made such a huge impact, at least on western audiences. Also think Yuri on Ice was significant to many people but may already be forgotten by the wider community. But in another 10 years time who knows what people will consider the 2010’s classics. Interesting topic to bring up Gigguk!

It's hard to recognize a classic when you're in the time it releases... You need some time to look back and analyse it historically... That's why it feels like "there's no classics anymore". Also, before the 90's, there are 5 shows per season IF they ever release something on TV, because most of releases were in VHS tapes (OVAs)... In the 90's, the popularity of anime and the landscape of Japanese economy, which crashed around 1995 (that's a important year, NGE & Ghost In The Shell original releases, start of the planning of Lain etc), that they started to produce more anime in general, especially to TV due to the fact that ANIMATION and COMPUTING TECHNOLOGY became way more cheaper and accessible. Nowadays there's also 50 to 70 shows per season... It's even harder to recognize the good ones that way, don't you think?
