I've always considered something a classic after a certain time after its release...or completion. (as well as based on its popularity and quality). If a great and popular anime were made a year ago, I'd consider it a great anime, but if it were made, say...five years ago, give or take, I'd call it a classic (depending on the magnitude of the aforementioned factors). That's just me, though. There's generally a consensus on what is a classic but not what makes a classic, ironically enough.

27. I still consider things made five years ago as "new". XD God, time goes by fast.

28.
I don't call things from 5-6 years ago classics per se, but I do get slight nostalgia vibes from things such as Pokemon Diamond or something, idk.

So stuff from 07 can be considered classic, I'm not sure about that. A minimum of a decade with a fanbase that's still growing today sounds a little closer. Even then most of the shows feel a bit new to me. Things like the Ghost in the Shell series and Azumanga Daioh could probably could be classed as classic, Azumanga has seemingly influenced half of the anime since afterall.

Strictly speaking, I wouldn't say a classic has to be old, as much as it has to be able to still work years from now.
Brilliant yet simple enough to not lose meaning after its time, and so on and so forth. Being an "instant classic" is a thing, after all.

But terminology. Bah. When it comes down to it it's pretty unimportant.

Yah, instant/modern classics don't require age, just the attributes I mentioned yesterday. To be respected as a full blown classic they have to prove their longevity, though.

It was 'Japanese Day' in my college today and there was tons of events around campus. One of them was anime was being screened in one of the lecture halls. Watched the first episode of Naruto and I thought it was awesome. Really considering watching Naruto now.

Because ninja are much more interesting than all the other professions. And important. Who needs a cook when you can just use boiling no jutsu?

You know your ninja show is classy when you dedicate a whole episode to defecation.

You know your ninja show is classy when your MC is blonde, has blue eyes, and wears a bright orange overall.

So, Swimming Anime, is actually becoming a full Anime, instead of just a trailer. I can hear the fangirls screaming already.

Can't say I'm as excited for it as some of those fans. |D I have others to look forward to.


Ahum, oh really?
Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken/FE7/Blazing Sword/Fire Emblem turned 10 two days ago. :3
The series itself is as old as me~ (Well, 26 days older, but still.)

I'm actually VERY SLOWLY playing through Genealogy of the Holy War. It's a good one, they need to translate it and put it on Virtual Console or something (that and Mother 3) because it's probably the most popular of the untranslated titles.
