For this list we rank the best '70s anime of all time, featuring the most popular and beloved anime series from the 1970s. It was a simpler time back then, and although many anime series reflected that simplicity, there were still many innovators that were completely ahead of their time. This list includes anime from the late '70s like Mobile Suit Gundam, but we mainly want to focus on series that aired in the heart of the '70s.

Are we missing your favorite 1970s anime? Please add as many series to the list as you want, as long as they are anime that aired between 1970-1979.
