I loved this series when I first saw it, before being spoiled with all the high end animation and everything.
But I have to say, I love old school anime A LOT more than I like a lot of the newer stuff their releasing these days.
MAZE I feel didn't age all that well with the passing of the years but yet no matter what I love this series and its voice acting in english! Same with Slayers ( Though Jap is prefered ). I feel that back when anime wasn't so generally loved and popular that it was a lot more original and was done a lot better, cuz they HAD to do a good job to get it to sell at all. Nowadays, throw together the anime with some nice animation, a decent story line and some big name voice actors and you've got a cash cow to ride out for a while before you release the NEXT big thing.
I feel that a lot of the newer animes have become...unoriginal and too based on plot line formulas. Newer anime I feel isn't very fresh except for the few titles that are actually trying to be somewhat original with what they are.
I am also finding myself getting tired of the CG animation which is always so clean and pristine, the good ol' hand drawn animes I feel had more character.
This is my opinion, but I love old school anime a lot more than the newer stuff with but a few exceptions ( Kanon and Clannad, you complete me! )
I am also tired of hearing all the same voice actors for everything, in both Japanese and English dubbing...
