No no, notice the "quotes" when I said modern. The point I was trying to
make is that its definately early 80's animation in style, but it no longer
seems odd once you watch a few episodes. I got into anime only a few years
ago, so I missed a lot of early 80's anime, and can probably count on one
hand the number of series' I've seen from that era. When I watched the first
episode of Zeta i was really turned off by the character designs and the way
people moved, but after seeing a few episodes, I realized it wasn't an
indication of low quality, it was just the way stuff was animated back then.
I certainly prefer it to Wing's overuse of stock footage, since everything
tends to look significantly more detailed.
I guess what I should have said was that its animation style is radically
different from most modern stuff, and whether you like it or not is going to
be a matter of personal taste. I should have been a bit more clear.
