Animu is not near as good as it was in the past. Were are the Bebop's the Evangellion's. Instead we get Sword Art Online.

I'm kind of wondering if it doesn't work out like this:



New anime doesn't only have to be good to be noticed, but it has to be good in ways the old ones weren't just to get the same level of recognition. So each year the process becomes successively more difficult to achieve.

You can't just make Cowboy Bebop again. Or Texhnolyze, Serial Experiments Lain, etc.

It's like a hurdle race, except each person runs separately, and after each person is done the number of hurdles doubles. There are still great anime being made, but they have to struggle much harder to be recognized.

Imho.

The thing that I'm seeing is that since the world and japan in general has such a large male fanbase so there's lots more ecchi anime being produced with woman with larger busts.

There's decent anime from all ages. What you like and won't like will largely depend on your tastes though. Things aren't going downhill; rather people's tastes are changing, and some of us (including me) don't like the changes quite as much (for example, as mentioned, anime tends to have more fan service these days).

Iv'e never felt invested in an older anime, with the exception of DBZ. Newer anime is better in my opinion.

Take that back right now. You're seriously missing out on tons of great shows with that mentality. No offense.

To name a few:

Ghost in the Shell
Gunbuster
Berserk
Dragon Ball
Excel Saga
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Mobile Suit Gundam
Macross
Birdy the Mighty
Sailor Moon
Cowboy Bebop
Diebuster
Texhnolyze

Wait, how far back? Well whatever, basically do some research and you will find out how stupid you've been in your logic. No offense.

The anime that are currently being released every season are nothing short of a disappointment. There are only around five titles that i would consider every season. That includes series, movies, and OVAs.

Are you able to point to sequentially older anime seasons that had more than 5-6 titles you'd watch consistently with your current viewpoint? Not "I did watch more then" but "If then was now I'd be watching this list of x titles."

It seems like there are more decent anime to watch now than ever.

I'm looking for a reliable list as well that I can go through, but I want something that has an image I can glance at for every title. Otherwise I just skim the names and miss half the things I should be paying attention to.

Why Berserk is gooood (thoug I haven't read the manga )


Its hard to put my finger on it. For starters its a more mature setting than your typical anime will have. It really contends with some of the worst crap that reality can throw at people in the world. I think what I like is that there is so much crap that goes on, and yet the main character Guts still goes on, finding his place and trying to stay human. Its inspiring to me and the characters (that stay alive) are not that one dimensional. Plus the ending of the anime sets you to the point where you HAVE to find out what happens in the end haha.

P.S.

The manga is pretty good. Check it out.

For Berserk, the story is so extraordinary the animation doesn't matter. The anime doesn't even do it justice, honestly, it just happens to be the next best thing there is besides the manga (which is insanely good).

I'm not sure if I'd call the anime a classic, but I would call the story one of the best ever conceived of in manga.

Or any medium, for that matter, if limited to the Black Swordsman and Golden Age arcs.

Using the year 2000 as the cut-off point would put about three or four decades of anime in the "old" category, and almost a decade and a half in the "new" category. Even so, looking at the list of anime that I've watched, of the eight pages of series/OVAs/movies that are listed, only half a page is devoted to anime that came out prior to the year 2000. Similarly, if you only look at my favorites (rated 4 out of 5 stars or above), you'd see that the vast majority of those also came out during the "new" time period. Also, I haven't watched anything that was made prior to 1984.

So I would have to disagree that old anime is better. The anime that really got me hooked are the shows that came out relatively recently. Anime that is truly old is barely even on my radar. The most I could do is delude myself into thinking old anime is better by being really picky about which ones I actually care to watch/remember.
