I watched a lot of 80s & 90s OVAs in the most recent lockdown. Do I regret it? Not at all! In this week’s episode, I want to share what I really enjoyed about my favourite OVAs from this ‘era’ and more importantly what I learnt from them too about anime. From the thrilling JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (1993) to the iconic Gunbuster (1988), let’s discuss what we can enjoy about these individually but also what we can learn about anime as a whole by giving them more recognition.
