hello
i used to be an anime freak but i haven't watched any anime for 6 months and i think it's because i coudn't find any worth watching one
i've noticed that new animes (2010-2011 animes) are really BAD
silly topics
similar topics
a lot of ecchi
boring characters and events

what do you think is this only my case or there are people who share my same opinion?

Heh, I feel the same way. However I can watch anything these days. Most of the time its to kill some time for work, as my work is kind of slowing down as of right now. Should of taken some courses for school lol.

I think it depends on what you used to watch. What kinds of anime caught your fancy. There's a lot of ecchi stuff out there these days, cause let's face it, sex (even only suggestive) sells.

Case in point "High School of the Dead". Now, I loved that anime simply because it had Zombies, Chicks with Guns, and yes, boobs. But watching the first couple of episodes I got to the point of "OK, enough with the 'boing', is there anything in this story other than boob shots?" and sure enough, by episode 5, it stopped being about the boobs and started being about survival and story and drama. I ended up really liking that show.

Another, recent, show is Rio-Rainbow Gate. Now this show is simply around for the fan-service, or so I thought. Again, after about 6-7 episodes, the gratuitous fan-service dropped off and it started to get dramatic (though, really, the story is so convoluted and silly that it doesn't really matter). But even though the story is silly, it's show to me that anime producers seem to let ecchi real watchers in before getting to the really good stuff. Why that is....who can say?

Now, I wish that a lot of anime would just DROP the first couple of fan-service episodes in lieu of getting right to the good stories, but I'm not in charge.

At least...not yet.

This season actually has some decent anime airing Gosick and Letter Bee is pretty good all though its bad to say but I start laughing whenever Lag starts to cry in it unless it really is a touching moment. But yeah sometimes I just usually wait til the series is full in its season before I start watching but this time around I didnt and so it at least has a few good things this time around

i think the smae way. Like... ... compair to FMA, Gundam seed, Naruto, bleach, soul eater and stuff. New animes are short. They are also getting boring :/ And have you notice so many animes have things to do with VAMPIRES now????

I've felt somewhat bored with anime for years. It seemed more interesting when I first started watching a lot around 2000. I'm not sure whether it's gotten that much worse or that I simply watched a lot of crappy anime at first but didn't mind because it was new to me.

So many shows are purely formulaic and use only cardboard cut-out typecast characters. Once you've seen one or two harem shows with a nice but clueless and bland teen male schoolboy protagonist and the (spunky tsudendere, shy glasses, stuck up rich, etc.) girls... They're all the same.

I sorta agree. Most shows are quite boring with the same plot and chara type.

I haven't been watching as much anime as I used to years ago. But once in a while, I always managed to find a good series to watch.

Like currently, I'm watching tegami bachi REVERSED and GOSICK. They are last season's and this season's anime but they are pretty damn awesome.

Sometimes, I say, you need to look for a while to find that nice awesome anime series!

But true enough, I think today's anime are a little lame. But nonetheless, they are pretty awesome ones out there!! You just need to find them!
