Hello Weebs and Otakus!

I am pretty sure that you have been a expert at this category or even just started being into it, it's always nice to know what kind of animes are out there.

Here I put together some popular Animes back in 60s in Japan (since it all started in 60s in Japan, I mean Disney is the first in terms of animation industry, but "Anime"  is something that has been shaped to a certain way in Japan and that is what I am talking about here).
Now Why 60s? Because I am planning to do series of 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, etc that way you could see some timeline and how it's developed and so on.

Hope you enjoy this list and widen your knowledge about our love and passion :)
