Why 2000s Anime Will Always Be The Best (& Why We Miss Them)

Anime has endeared itself into the hearts of fans because of its distinctive visual look and engaging plotlines. It could be that the early anime didn’t use digital editing and kept it more realistic and attractive. Streaming Platforms didn’t exist during that time, so the fans had to jump through hoops to watch their favourite ones. Early 2000s was the time when it gained popularity.

The Fansub Community

Today, Anime comes out faster than it used to. For instance, in the early 2000s, new seasons or new series took years to release. This is because we did not have streaming platforms before. Because of this, a lot of fans used to eagerly wait for the anime to be aired. The Fansub Community was the best at it. The Fansub Community used to translate them into a language other than the original language. Even today, many fans look back at Fansubs.

The fans would watch whatever they could get in their hands. They wouldn’t rely on social media. This factor didn’t effect them at all. Social media didn’t have to tell them how it was .What fun it would be to watch a anime with no expectations!

The fans from the anime community started creating AMVs. They were created and edited by the fans by mixing the clips with popular music. Today it might look odd, but the people of 2000s are still fond of it even now. The fans were so creative and came up with new realistic ideas. Few of the AMVs are so good that they are remembered even today. The most popular AMV of the early 2000s was “Sail On”. This is also one of the things that the fans miss from the 2000s.
