Crash or not, the majority of the titles that I like came out after 2007. So somebody must be doing something right.

It's more of a distribution problem outside of Japan than a problem with production.

Never in my life have I ever felt burnt out on anime.

The primary reason is I switch between gaming and anime.

Another fact is, with all the anime I've seen shitty ones and good ones, there has n ever that perfect anime. This has lead me to seek for that one anime that will be picture perfect, in a way I don't feel like I can burn out of anime.

I /rage at protagonists though.


I fucking hate the weak-willed beta males they show in harem/ecchi shows! Why the hell can't they have protagonists with backbones for once?

I've already seen perfect anime: Cowboy Bebop.

I also play Team Fortress 2 a lot. Got plenty of girls to keep me occupied. I don't care if they're taken or not. I'll let their boyfriends and husbands pay for them while I'm not around. Speaking of which, all the fucking oneitis of so many protagonists. Why don't they just date ten other women? What do they think is going to happen? (School Rumble comes to mind)

I used to play Oblivion a lot, but I downloaded a lot of mods and now I'm sick of it. Yet I've never finished the Fighters Guild quests. I barely ever finish the main quest, let alone Shivering Isles! All the game-breaking tricks (100% Chameleon, spellmaking, enchanting, alchemy, etc.) don't help matters much either. If you want to build your health, just put on some heavy armor, shark a bunch of repair hammers, and let a mud crab whale on you. After you kill it, fix your armor. If you want to increase your intelligence, just make some Restore Fatigue potions. I never use the vanilla races--only custom ones. I've got landscape mods, weapons, armor, clothing, overhauls--I've broken the mod limit a couple times.

If the industry had just adopted digital distribution early on, we wouldn't have this mess! Japan needs to quit living in the past!

lol japan's flip phones have always been very good actually. They were very powerful even before we started coming out with the popular phones in america. They like what they like. I see no problem with flip phones.....it's a phone. You're not backwards because you use a different phone than someone else. They're pretty durable actually.....if some new good flips started coming out I'd definitely buy one.

How the hell can they still keep using flip phones over in Japan? They're obsolete! For such a technologically advanced yet perverted nation, you'd think Japan would have wised up and adopted smartphones en masse like we have!

Have you tried texting in Japanese without a physical keyboard, especially using only one hand?

I was going to say quite a bit, but I decided that it wasn't worth the effort.

Instead, I'll just say you should take a look at yourself before you call other things shallow. Also, your sexual life had nothing to do with the argument you presented.

P.S. I hate smartphones. I like flip phones.

Who would figure that if the Japanese were so perverted then why is there a population decline? That's even mentioned in a couple of anime.


Japan has mostly forgotten how to make babies, and they have all those body pillows. I'm sure all of us here have read those fluff pieces about guys marrying video game characters. Why the hell don't they just pick up real chicks? You can't make love to characters from anime, manga, and vidya!

Futurama was right: DON'T DATE ROBOTS AND DON'T DATE CARTOON CHARACTERS!

Tentacle porn is funny as hell, but all the lolicon shit needs to go. But the train perverts? What the hell kind of culture looks down on women retaliating against train perverts? It's already bad enough they blame bullying victims (Look at H2O if you don't believe me). Why the hell does Japan put up with that barbaric shit? Then you factor in the lack of de-Nazification (Look up Yasukuni Shrine, Unit 731, Nanking Massacre, Bataan Death March, and comfort women). For a nation that makes great cartoons and electronics, you'd think they'd have cleaned up their act like Germany did after the war.

Do you still use DOS? Me neither.
Why should you use a flip phone now? You can't browse the Internet on them! You can't listen to music on them! Why have separate devices when you can have one device that does all those, text, and call people? Flip phones are so over. Get with the times! Would you rather have current tech or would you rather have people laugh at you?

I don't really disagree with you, but you obviously aren't familiar with the setup of the Japanese mobile market. They've been browsing with phones for far longer than we have. As a result, flip phones greatly influenced the way they design websites. If you've visited a Japanese site, it had a striking similarity to a BBS. They still do to a large extent. Because smartphones break this model, the Japanese have been slow to adopt them.

Here's an article that will give you some background on this:

First reality check Anime is: Entertainment, event, performance, or activity designed to give pleasure to an audience.That being said if you are disgruntled over the type of Cell phone they are using thats petty.I still use a flip phone because the US economy stinks and things are bad for a lot of us.Yea it much be nice to have a Smartphone new PC Smart TV etc.I am thankful for having anime to watch its better than most TV and the movies they give us.Let alone the music industry.Give me a band that has A B-3 Hammond and Leslie speaker.I listen to older music that has better seperation and clarity than lots of digital recordings. Dont get me wrong new tech is great but dont diss the old because it was a moment in time and without that you wouldnt enjoy today.I think a lot of people are. I think there are too lot of spoiled people who only see but not taste feel hear whats going on.

You know you can get pre-paid smartphones, don'tcha?

I'll take GOOD anime like Dantalian, Bebop, Spice & Wolf, Haruhi, Escaflowne, FMA, Gunbuster, etc., over dumbed-down PG-rated WWE wrestling. Bring back the Attitude era and give us the next Bebop!

I once called out a chick for still listening to CDs and cassettes (They were mostly her boss's). Who the hell still buys music on physical media? We have MP3s, flash drives, clouds, and mini-SD cards now! I myself haven't bought a CD in forever--I just download everything. The few CDs I do have are from years ago. Music on physical media is dead. Why buy CDs that can scratch easily when you've got SD cards and USB flash drives that can hold far more songs and fit nicely in your pocket?

I still buy anime on DVDs because there's so much that's gone out of print thanks to the Great Crash. Managed to scoop up plenty of rare gems--old Manga/CPM/Tokyopop stuff, early Viz and Bandai titles, rare AnimEigo and Urban Vision stuff. Got over a couple hundred different anime in my collection. When you factor in all the stuff I've watched on TV or through streaming, it's currently 655 shows. Nobody needs to watch that much anime--quality over quantity! Better a few good shows than a whole assload of shitty ones.

I still use a land line because I've always found cellphones distasteful. Although yeah I was watching Lain for the first time yesterday and looking at the tech in that show made me cringe. Amazing, we have nano-machines now.

Land lines are still fine for power outages. That's it.

Get a cell phone! How can you hate them?

This isn't the '90s anymore. Get with the times.
