There used to be so many good shows. Nowadays all we get is generic shonen trash like Gintama and My Hero Academia or stupid fanservice like Food Wars and Violet Evergarden. There’s also that pedophile show with the really old man with a creepy head buying a teenager to be his wife too. None of these shows are realistic like School Days or go into such deep family relationships like in Pupa. We need more good anime like that. Let’s not forget the hit sci-fi Mars of Destruction. That genre desperately needs more impressive shows like that. CR can you please do something to get more good anime like these?

2005-2014 was the golden age of anime. I fear that the kids growing up won’t ever learn of these classics. They’re too busy watching bland shows made by some small studio that only puts out generic garbage like Madhouse’s Cardcaptor Sakura or Overlord. There’s too much pointless moe trash too that’s just there for the sake of looking cute like Made in Abyss. The last good anime we had was Hand Shakers with its innovative animation and unique story. Why can’t we have more of that? And I know CGI is difficult to animate properly, but it can’t be that hard to make it as good as Berserk’s, right? Stop being so damn lazy animators and give us more of that beautiful CGI.

I take it this is a joke. I've been watching anime since the 90's and of the three shows mentioned in the thread title, I've only heard of School Days. Not in a good context either. The general quality of anime nosedived after the 2008 financial crash. Studios took fewer risks and doubled down on tired tropes they knew would sell. We might finally be seeing the early stages of a recovery, but the best shows still tend to be new seasons or remakes of proven classics.

It's about time someone gave Pupa its due credit. Those bonds of sibling love will forever be remembered! Ed and Al pale in comparison.

And don't forget the very realistic show GYO. Visiting the aquarium will never be the same once my eyes have been opened to the truth. It could happen to you too! New anime just doesn't have the audacity to produce such exposé pieces.

*salty agreement*

Exactly! Pupa has the healthiest sibling relationship in all of anime!

What is this GYO? It sounds like it could be a masterpiece.

Whenever I find that a new season brings nothing but disappointment and [not the good type of] tears, I am still so grateful that Crunchyroll has managed to hold onto recent classics for my rewatching enjoyment. Don't lose heart folks in this upcoming, sure to be horrible, Spring of 2018; here are a few oldies and honorary oldies to lift your spirit:

Rail Wars
Himegoto
Brothers Conflict

For recent greatness I'm afraid you'll have to visit HIDIVE to enjoy strong, well-developed, female protagonists like the angels of The Seven Heavenly Virtues, which Crunchyroll so cruelly deprived us of this Winter.

For real, now were getting more offensive crap like Steins;Gate and Full Metal Panic this season. When will these Japanese producers ever learn to make REAL good stuff?

MAL top 50 is a lie and a myth. Why are people forgetting about these recent masterpieces:
- Chaos Dragon
- Big Order
- Bloodivores
- Anything done by Haoliners

Oh boy LUCKY YOU! I just finished a masterpiece myself! SWORDGAI the animation. It will make you relive those golden days. Netflix finally hit gold with that one. I was really tired of the Devils and the Bs.

LOL

Wish I could come up with a good rant but usually I just haven't seen (much) of animes I consider bad.

Personally, I just wish there were more distribution services with exclusive rights and territories. In fact, when you think about it, each show should have it's own distribution service and it's own subscription fee. It would also be better if there were no scheduled release times and dates for shows. It makes it so much more exciting when your favourite show releases it's newest episode when you have no idea when it's going to happen.

Junji Ito's best work. Found a copy of the manga at the bookstore recently, but the reference section was missing. Couldn't verify the data. The anime is more than sufficient.

All jokes aside, School Days was pretty realistic considering most people that age do think with the wrong head lol
