It's more popular in my opinion, but the qualities have taken quite a massive drop for a number of series.

I'd say more popular .... but I'm not sure if that's a good thing, considering some of the otaku you see dressing up these days!! O.o

I would say that anime is growing in popularity, but at a slower rate.

It is for sure growing in popularity. The influence it has had (in America) is uncanny. (look at Hollywood) Take Kick Ass for example. Hit Girl - a little girl slaughtering a bunch of bad guys. Its straight out of an anime if you ask me (I know its based on a comic book I read the comic). I'm sure there are plenty of other obvious influences, but I am not going to take the time to think of any more.

well know fans watch more of the fansub when i grew up we coundt stream anyting and the prices to buy a vhs were high cause it was much rarer at the time YTV for me is what started my anime fandom but at the time it was all new know its available online and you see it everywere.I dont know if the quality of the new story lines improved tho but i would say a definite YES!

Basically what everyone said. It is more popular, but because it became popular, the sane themes are being used in almost every anime.
