So back in October I was randomly looking at older anime and I realized that the Astro Boy anime was going to be 50 years old in 2013! Exactly 50 years old on January 1st 2013!!
So I decided I wanted to do a little something on here all year long because of this. So I'm going to go through all 50 years of anime noting important shows, shows I've watched from each year, or just talking about stuff that happened in general in those years. The anime world is huge so there's no way one person can cover EVERYTHING but I'll do my best. Anime isn't the only thing I'll take a look at either. I'll take a look at important people and studios too.
There is another awesome blog solely dedicated to the 50 years of anime that you should totally check out too! It will have lots more information about these 50 years from a lot of different people!
50 Years of Televised Win
Here's how the rest of the post is laid out for posts that will take place on Oishii Anime!
- The first number is the weeks in the month
- Followed by the days in that week
- Then the year(s) they will cover with a link to the year on Anime-Planet
- Then there is a list of 'important' anime (or just anime I've actually seen from the year) which I will talk about during that week
- Anime are separated into 4 groups: SERIES, MOVIE, OVA, and OTHER. STUDIO and PEOPLE will be randomly inserted
- Then there is another year link this time to ANIDB for even more information
NOTE: I am still in progress of inputting the anime titles, people and studios into this post but I wanted to get this schedule up asap!
