When I made my introductory post I mentioned the possibility of retroblogging an old series. So I figured if I’m going to watch and blog an old series, it should be a really old series. Thinking about this and hearing a few suggestions from readers, I’ve narrowed it down to three series and I’ll let you, the readers choose. I’ve only seen the first 2-3 episodes of each, so please no spoilers in the comments sections. Have your say in the poll behind the cut. On Monday afternoon I’ll look at the results and go with the series with the most votes.
- Maison Ikkoku – Comedy/romance written by Rumiko Takahashi about a boarding house inhabited by several odd people while the protagonist attempts to pass the college entrance exams and begins falling for the building manager. It’s just so darn likable I’m going to be watching it even if I’m not blogging it.
-SDF Macross – A classic that I’ve never seen but hear so much of. Earth is threatened by the alien Zentradi and the only thing in their way is a rebuilt crashed alien space carrier, its compliment of mecha-fighter craft, and…singing?
-Uchyuu Senkan Yamato – Space Battleship Yamato aired in 1978 and supposedly began the modern concept of anime. Earth has been turned into a barren, radioactive wasteland by conquering aliens except for the few remaining underground cities. The Yamato is built with advanced technology to take the fight to the enemy and find a cure for the poisoning of Earth’s atmosphere.Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
