Um, personal opinion here, I never liked the old animes because all the character faces looked the same and the art seems too "dramatic". The plotlines for these animes were always too complex. It was annoying to actually make an effort to follow what was going on. And yeah, the art is too dark. I like modern day anime because there is more variety in character design and the drawings are a bit brighter. The plotlines are much easier and more original nowadays. Before all it was was those lame robot animes that were all the same.
