While the 1990s was a golden era for anime, the 80s also had its fair share of influential contributions to the genre. Looking back, without these, many of the shows we grew up with would not exist today. Respect your elders, kids.
Here's one you don't hear about enough, back in 1988 Sunrise debuted Ronin Warriors, which followed the adventures of five elite heroes that must stop Talpa, lord of the underworld, from taking over the realm of the living. Although the show may lack depth, it was perfect for kids looking for an action packed show. Plus, just watch that opening, it's the most 80s thing ever.
