Are New-School Anime Fans Deprived of Old-School Anime?
Are newer fans of anime missing out on old anime? I consider such anime as Cowboy Bebop, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Serial Experiments Lain, and even FLCL (although a little more modern but still under the radar from most newer fans) to be essential, classic anime viewing. Most anime fans today are into Attack on Titan, Madoka Magica, Kill la Kill, Angel Beats, etc. Do you feel that it’s important that they watch some of the older anime series? I absolutely think so. A lot of those anime like those I mentioned tend to touch intellectually on a deeper level.
