If you mean specifically visually I certainly agree with you, 90's anime definitely doesn't look good. There was something about the stories back then though. To put it simply I feel like even though they still have lots of trope the individual stories still stood out from each other more.
BlueSpark wrote:That's a very good point to make. Every once in a blue moon, you'll find a show like this which employs its ecchi elements as an integral part of the overarching concept. I still remember how Aria: The Scarlet Ammo uses its lewd scenes to fuel the protagonist's hysteria mode. Or how in Yamada's First Time, Yamada positively enforces ecchi moments because she (thinks she) wants to be looked at as sexually desirable.
I'll have to check those two out, I haven't seen them before. Thanks!

Keima Katsuragi, my favorite male anime protagonist, also sort of satisfies these criteria. I admire how he stays true to himself and makes the best out of his flawed (in the sense that all humans are inherently flawed) character against all odds.
Code Geass has been on my list for awhile but i never get to it. Death Note and God Only Knows are two series I loved back in my manga days. Never seen the anime for either though. I feel like Death Note wont be nearly as good, manga is best medium for super wordy psychological battles.
