i dunno if they're lucky or not. Introducing older animes to people who are new to anime is a no-god; they're so put off by its "ugliness" that they show no interest in it, even if it is a really good story. /shrug. Those whose first anime were the older ones can still be dazzled by new anime but yet remember the good stories of older anime.

So... I wouldn't say new generation are necessarily lucky. Sure it's nice to have things right at your fingertips, but there's so much to see that there's little interest in other good, older things.



am i a bitter old man or what

It really isn't any different now than it was 20 years ago or even further. A lot of 80's anime was full of fanservice moments. Evangelion popularised the phrase itself quite heavily and promoted the idea of fanservice for the sake of it in the mid 90's.

Right now we are re-entering an era of popularity for the magical girl genre so we are getting a lot of the same kind of things we saw in previous magical girl anime which involves alot of fanservice because it sells figures in Japan. But overall i don't really see it any different than i saw in the 90's or 00's

Actually, I feel I was luckier before with shows like sakura and dragon ball or saint seiya...I don't know why but those animes will always remain dearly in my memory whereas other animes I've seen these past few years are very forgettable, no matter how good the animation is...or maybe I'm getting old so it takes more than pretty animation to hold my interest. In other words, the future with anime will be the same for the new generations as it is for us, in my opinion.

Blue pads or whatever under her eyes, fuzzy hair that looks like she haven't taken a shower in months, short(well I guess that's moe), odd and all that.
Talking about taking a dump.
Yeah, she's very moe :P
NO she's not. Not compared to the other moe characters today at least

"The word has come to be used to mean one particular kind of "adorable", one specific type of "cute", mainly as applied to fictional characters." and "Girls who are moe are called moekko (萌えっ娘?) from the honorific "娘" meaning "female child"."

there are so many different kinds of moe, that there is no concrete definition for moe. anyone who tells you otherwise is wrong.

hell, I've heard people classify Light and L from Deathnote as a type of male moe.
