I have a serious feeling that you're just looking at the titles of anime and deciding whether you like them or not, based just on that.

Seriously, just experiment with the anime you watch! Watch the first couple anime of a series, and maybe it'll be really good!


I thought also that since a couple of my favorite animes had ended that there were no good titles, but I searched around and found Another, Dark Maiden of Amnesia, and a couple others that turned out to be absolutely fantastic, and actually topping my previous favorite titles!

Bleach anime should never come back. Pierrot will definitely murder it again.

You try something produced by Bones?

Eureka Seven: Astral Ocean for the win!

Although I recommend watching the original if you haven't see it already. You'll be stunned by how much better something is when there is care given to it over something like the "Big Three." If it is made by Bones the chances I will watch it are drastically higher than pretty much any other studio. You are just not looking around enough, there is some good anime around, you just have to find it.

Of all the anime or animated shows in 2012 i think its ironic that the best animated show in the world right now is legend of korra which is american made(well its animated in korea) ....its animation is way better than an average anime and its storytelling and action are excellent.....we need more of these shows.....the quality of japanese anime has on the downslide since the 90's ...now we just see some crap.....the animes these days are just garbage man...with only a few exceptions...i mean what the hell happened to seinen animes now....now its all generic and unoriginal.....

It's the way the world works. Once or twice a year an anime comes along that manages to break a few barriers or even several. Things adapt and change all the time. It all cycles back to money.

Kids On the Slope
Space Brothers
Mysterious Girlfriend X

Hard to argue that these are not original. (and great for me personally)

As for Shounen-action titles you could say it is somewhat lacking I guess but Naruto just entered .... spoilers

Forgot
Another

and

Fate/Zero Season 2 <---- saving this one for later but if it is anything like the first season ... me gusta

and this is just on the crunchyroll site

Everyone here who calls this guy a troll is in fact the troll. You guys should probably look up what being a troll means before you start accusing everyone you don't agree with a troll.

I only see a few animes talked about here, but a lot of them I have seen over the past few years have been quite well done and I have been happy with them. I love Sankarea... great show. I like a few others at the moment, but unfortunately I don't watch what everyone else does, so I can't agree with you on this topic. I am looking forward to the new animes this year, especially with the new artwork concepts... beautifully done.

Seems like there is a great deal of conclusory statements about the state of anime without any real discussion. Some of the responses proclaim that anime are good which, in fact, did not occur in 2012. Others claim he isn't a real anime fan because he doesn't like most/ all anime, or isn't mature enough to like good anime. These ad hominem statements aren't all that helpful either.Others, include such a large list of anime, i would question whether their is an anime bad enough that they wouldn't like it. I'm looking at you Aquarion fan. Point is that the general decay of anime has been noticed/argued by people enough that you need not be a troll to state it. The fact that so much of the anime declared as good here come from a narrow group of genres lends wait to the arguability of the original posters point.

Though I wont go as far as the original poster and say that Anime is unwatachable this year--I am a fan of Dusk Maiden of Amnesia--I will say that most of the shows out here are no better then Naruto. Nothing yet has approached Code Gease,Trigun, Cowboy Bebop, Robotech, Serial Experiments Lain, Death Note, the original Full Metal Alchemist, etc. And, further, what's left seem to be merely remakes or sequels to previously made anime like Evangelion, or Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood.

You don't have to be a heretic to feel this way either, it is natural for anime quality to vary during the years and to disapprove of some years is not to hate anime. I am reminded of the dark years of the early nineties. So I would suggest that, perhaps, responders to this post have been as much trolls as the OP.

For much more articulate discussion of the current quality of anime I offer this youtube posting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCA_Tb4W9WM&feature=fvwrel


A lot of the shows you think are so good I think are overrated XD I hated Lain when I saw it back when it first came out, and honestly even Cowboy Bebop -- which I would have gladly told you was my favorite show EVER back in 1999 -- doesn't hold up that well when I watch it nowadays; it seems kinda melodramatic, and Spike is an asshole. FMA I lost interest in halfway through, and Death Note... eurgh. I actually gave away four volumes of that manga because I started disliking it so quickly I just wanted it out of my house.

And I've been eating up Tsuritama and Space Brothers, which only started this season. So... I dunno. I guess all I'm trying to say is that it's entirely subjective. I'm sure you really do love the shows you've listed, just as I really don't. So the "Anime sucks now!" arguments really should be saying "The anime that's coming out now doesn't seem to be to my taste!"

No offense, but perhaps you should. Here's a decent list of Troll characteristics:

In this thread, the OP used the classic hit-and-run approach.

You might prefer a Romance novel to Crime and Punishment. That doesn't mean that Crime and Punishment isn't a better novel. Sometimes, works of art are simply better despite your own preferences. That being said, my point is simply that one does not need to be a troll to express the feeling that older anime was better then current anime.

You shouldn't watch so much mainstream.. Just because most of them are long, they'll end eventually );
Open up your horizons to other animes...
