i agree with this person. your thread doesn't make much since. I can however say that i've been watching anime for 13 years now, and i feel that anime hasn't even gone out of touch...not in the least. I feel that its gotten better. better CG, fighting, plots, etc.


if you want better CG, fighting, plots, etc. you should request OVAs and ONAs from the creator, i tried... didn't work out the way i hoped... God dammit pplz!!! make a OVA for Full Metal Alchemist!!! And Straight Jacket!!!



if you do that then the creator will just say no and say that they way it ended was good enough. if your favorite anime ends then it ends. no point in pleading for an ova or something. then if you do get an ova or something you know someone is going to say that its old and totally flame that anime and the creator. New is good. doing anime over and over is just bad. look at El Hazard and its massive amounts of ova's and such. good anime but too overdone.


go watch Straight Jacket if you like supermageactionbloody animes, you know wat, just watch it and after the third episode (i think it's the last because i coudnt find the fourth ANYWHERE) don't watch if you dont like animes such as:
Elfin Leid
Monster
Mnemosyne
or anything that has excessive blood and gore.



look i'm not going to argue about anime in a forum thread. its just dumb. and what your stating is just opinion. and stuff you like to watch. the thread is about is anime losing its touch not what is your favorite anime and do you wish they made more of it.


agreed

Excellent examples of old anime are lets see....Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Crest of the Stars, Banner of the Stars, Super Dimension Fortress Macross, maybe the old school Transformers, and Superhumaniod Casshern. Those anime seemed so appealing mainly because the plots and character styles were so fresh. Nowadays a lot of the anime you see is either a copy of what is old or excessive blood, violence, cleavages and stuff like that. Although there are many excellent anime created in the present such as Code Geass but there are hints of a downgrade in the quality of plots and development of characters (not saying that its the anime creators fault of course). So, is anime losing its touch? My simplest answer would be "Yes, but not enough to worry about."

I been watch anime since 5 years agoa I have to admit the one from back then wer five time more better than anime they havetoday. I mean we use to have Witchblade, Gundam seed, Death Note, Code Geass, Full metal Alchemist, Full metal Panic, One Piece, Bleach, Naruto, Sousei no Aquarion, Black Cat, Black Lagoon, Claymore, Detective Conan, Tantei Gakuen Q, Fate Stay Night, Karin, Lovely Complex, Mai hime, Mai otome, Negima, Shakugan no shana, Zero no Tsukaima, The melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Utawaerumono, Rurouni Kenshin, Tsubasa Chronicles,Saiunkoku monogatari, Eureka Seven, Gundam Wing, and ect.

Now those were good anime. They had good plot, good story, bad ass ending. And when it sad its actually really sad not just some boring sappy scene. And even if the anime isn't good by itself. At least the opening and ending music was lots better than the stuff we have today.
Hyakko, Soul Eater, Casshern Sins, Tytania, Shikabane hime: Aka, Kurozuka, Skip beat, Garei Zero, and Toradora, Xamd lost memories. I mean compare them to The anime back then they dont even come close.


i know what you mean , and i agree.

most of the new animes are boring you kinda know what will happen , and there's allot of repetitive stuff in today's anime.

no, it isn't. There are some new shows this fall that are very good -- so far. And some of the ongoing ones aren't half bad.

Hm...I dunno...I find that a lot of previews for animes are rather...ecchi?
The target audience for anime today, or at least on Crunchyroll, seems to be mostly directed towards males. :\
I was surprised when I found a new reverse harem (Earl and Fairy)...kinda rare in my opinion...

First: Some of the anime you mentioned are still ongoing. Also most of them are not even two years old. I believe what you are experiencing is what some people call "Anime Burnout". You have probably just been watching too much anime and the novelty has worn off on you. I suggest you take a break from anime for a while.

yes I agree too... I have seen lots of great anime, but many of them were around 5-10+ years ago. Not to say there haven't been good ones since(there definitely has), but I just don't find those one of a kind amazing ones.

It could be that I just don't get the same feeling as I used to because I've seen so much. Plus the fact that when I first started seeking out anime to watch, I went and saw all the 'best' ones. More popular and whatnot. I don't think they all came out at once, so it is rather natural that it feels like anime has been getting worse... Maybe I just haven't been getting as big of a dose of it now. I still watch a lot, but most aren't those amazing ones that stick out.

and also a variety of popular ideas have already been taken and used, which often makes it more difficult for the author to be original. I don't mind having separate stories with the same topic too much. The characters are still unique in their own type of way, not to mention the drawing is different. However if I were trying to write a story I would definitely want something that had not really been thought of before.

You need to get your case more organized before going public. Also I imagine you have changed a lot in the last 5 years (11 - 16) so this might have something to do with finding anime that you like. I just finished watching Kurozuka and it has an older feel (Record of Lodoss War etc.). I'm not sure you will like the storyline. My favorite lately has been 'Time of Eve'

Personally I think technology has improved the aesthetic. I think the quality of storylines is about the same. I also think that a more diverse market is being catered to. 2002 2003 usually averaged 10 shows a season (e.g. Fall). Now they have like 20 or so. So yes more shows that are superficial and just cater to pink haired girls that tend to loose their clothes etc. but with so many shows coming out in a season there should be something you like. If not, Noir & Ghost in the Shell are well liked from a/b 5 years ago.

A fair number of new titles exist in the top rated anime:

Also you might like some of the drama on CR. I haven't seen much, but Gokusen is based on a manga and was well received.

I think that the anime may be losing touch with you because you are busy trying to compare them to previous ones you've watched. While it's true that classics like The Legend of the Galactic Heroes don't come often at all, and I haven't really seen any similar quality recently, I doubt that you can expect them to come around more than once every couple of years. Another possibility is that the animes are still good when you don't compare them, but since you've already seen others which have similar plots, characters, etc and have already developed your own attachments to those, you can't help but side with the animes that you've already seen.

You can think of it this way as well. Ten years ago, anime couldn't be watched online. Just recently have people been able to view anime from every era. I think the oldest show I've heard of online started in the 50's. Only the really good old shows are going to be online, since it's probably a lot more difficult to get and put up. Today's shows are taken straight from Japan the day they air, sent to subbers, and translated within a couple of days usually, with a max of a month or two. You can probably find every single anime they show this season attached to some sub group. If you think that for every amazing story, there could be another 1-3 horrible shows, maybe it'll change your way of thinking on how many decent stories there are. Recent examples for me would be Spice and Wolf, Claymore, Amatsuki, and Gundam 00.
