Darkness beyond twilight
Crimson beyond blood that flows
Buried in the stream of time is where your power grows
I pledge myself to conquer all the foes who stand
before the mighty gift bestowed in my unworthy hand
Let the fools who stand before me be destroyed
by the power you and I possess...

Just finished binge watching Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water. It’s outdated in a visual sense and it’s obvious where the animation got hit in certain scenes and episodes, but by god the story is just awesome. Would highly recommend it. (it’s a Gainax anime written by Hayao Miyazaki what more do you need?)

I checked out the Digimon remake. I'm going to continue to try and watch it, but the re-do very much let me down in the first episode

If you ask me you just can't beat the 80s early 90s anime...

I recently finished Woodpecker Detective's Office, which is about a fictional detective office run by Kyosuke Kindaichi and Takuboku Ishikawa, both of whom were real life figures in early 20th century Japan. It had a really nice Taisho-era aesthetic (east meets west in a nutshell) and some well-written mysteries, and likable characters.

Also I saw both seasons of Granblue Fantasy, which is basically Final Fantasy 1-9 x Skies of Arcadia: the anime. Anime that have RPG-like plots but aren't isekai are rare, and the world building and characters were great. It has airships and floating continents, plus Nobuo Uematsu and Hideo Minaba were involved, hence my comparisons.

Agree 100%. While I enjoyed and recommend both of the modern shows I listed, for Granblue in particular I kept thinking, "This is really good, but the animation pales in comparison to the 1990 Record of Lodoss War OVA". There's a certain magic to hand drawn animation that CGI can't fully replicate. As an artist who usually uses colored pencils, but dabbles in Clip Paint, I can relate personally. Also the time period you mentioned had (for anime in in general) higher color contrast, not to mention more thick dark lines, both of which I prefer.

And I think we all have an affinity to that style if we grew up to it. I remember falling in love so hard with the OVA's and artwork of Sonic CD and Chrono Trigger when I first saw them...

Ehh I'm gonna have to disagree with you there. I continually reexamine my interests to see if something has not held up well. Nostalgia plays little-no role in my tastes. In regards to anime and vg art design, for me it's about high color contrast/thick dark outlines like I said. Obviously other things like plot, character personality, music etc matter too, but when it comes to 80s/90s anime vs modern, that what I notice the most.

The Legend of Galactic Heroes, I'm on ep 36 out of 110 (I believe it's the longest OVA series, ever.) I like how the focus is on the tacticians and the their strategizing, not one young lone pilot who saves the day in so many other space operas. Also I enjoy that the score is made of existing classical music. Eg Beethoven's Sonata Pathétique has been played at least twice so far.
