What's the oldest anime you've ever watched?

Thanks,

Ichigo

I go to a genshiken every month and we watch all kinds of stuff. I think the oldest I've seen there was Galaxy train 999 ( or was it 666? can't remember). That or it was PatLabor. My friend would have let me watch Akira, but my VCR was Broken.

So which ever came out first ( Galaxy Train or PatLabor) was the oldest I've watched.

I'm not sure about 'oldest', but one of the first that I watched was a series that told lessons/stories/fables. Each episode was 'hosted' by this professor (who was a panda wearing a suit) and his young student, an immature fat pink robot named "Why-Why" (?). The stories that were told by the professor were typically historic in setting. I'm not sure what the actual name of this show was, but it was available in Cantonese (at least). If anyone finds the title, please feel free to share it.

Great podcast as always. I love the news and reviews. I'm glad to hear that Chrono Crusade is going to be on SyFy (even though, I'm in Canada). I've only ever watched the English version, but I really liked it (especially how they used the old slang). I also read something interesting about how the people who voiced Rosette and Chrono were losing their voices.

I look forward to your next show. Take care.

The oldest anime that I have ever watched would be Mobile Suit Gundam (also know as First Gundam, Gundam 0079 or simply Gundam 79)

Mobile Suit Gundam was released on April 7, 1979.

Like RedUnit, mine is Mobile Suit Gundam, although in my case it was the first condensed movie version.

Same as the above two posters, however I haven't seen all of Mobile Suit Gundam. A couple episodes here and there but I've been too lazy to actually sit and watch it through.

What, no one else watched Gigantor/Tetsujin-28go?(1956 for those of you keeping score at home)

Now I feel old.

The oldest anime I have watched is the 1958 movie The Tale of the White Serpent. It was the first ever color anime feature film.

Well, for older titles, it can get pretty hard to obtain some of them, whether you watch fansub/rip releases or watch them via the legal means. Usually with the lack of availability, older titles get lost in the mix, while ones that are common (i.e. Cowboy Bebop, FMA, etc etc) tend to get watched way more often.

I'm getting a sneaking feeling a large percentage of the anime world haven't watched anime earlier than the 1980s, with those who have seen 80s anime will include Akira, etc). However that's just an assumption of mine with not facts to back up said statement.

Likewise for myself, Mobile Suit Gundam is probably the oldest one I can remember watching. However I know I have seen a few episodes of the original Casshern anime but I can't remember when it came out though.

Awh, I feel a little noobish for not being able to name some really obscure show. My oldest would be Akira, in terms of a TV series, it's Evangelion.

And it is a real shame that most fans haven't. Sad If you really look, you can find some nice gems. I watch a lot of obscure anime, personally (like Cosmo Pink Shock, California Crisis, and Dragon Half).

I think for me to be able to watch 80s (and earlier) titles that aren't Akira or Bubblegum Crisis, I'd have to trawl the internet to find a site with decent uploads or import them and buy a region 1/region 0 DVD player. I'm not doing either.
I also only tend to try shows that I've heard of and know a little bit about. I rarely just pick a show on a whim.

Ichigo I know you would like this but the oldest anime that I've watched was Robotech! And I still love it so much that the anime club has to let me only watch Mech/Robotech once a semester.

Well I think nothing can really beat Urusei Yatsura of all the junk I've watched. Well, I've picked up some random shows, like Usagi de Cue, or this other series I saw on TT called A Little Princess Sara, which might be older, but I haven't checked.

Man I almost forgot about that. Used to watch that on the mornings when I still had TV. Not as good as Macross, but it had those motorcycles... way cool.

One of the oldest ones I remember watching was Lensman-Secret of the Lens. They used to show it on Sci-Fi all the time along with the inspiration for my username on the weekends in the early 90's!

True enough, and for what it's worth I believe Gigantor had a small run on Cartoon Network's Toonami about a decade back, and there is a DVD release in the US.

The oldest anime I have seen is Mobile Suit Gundam. Although it is the oldest, I saw Gundam Wing before I watched this one.
