I'd say about the same overall. Art and all that technically stuff, of course they'll be better off in those areas, but everything else will be about the same as ours and the past.

If you really feel that way, have you checked out AnimeSols.com yet? You might find something there to enjoy.

The next gen's very lucky, you can get anime for free or for a low monthly price streaming on the internet nowadays. I remember when there were almost no official releases and you had to hunt down people with video casettes of fansubs mailed over from Japan.

Physical fricking video tapes that had to be borrowed and returned and could only be gotten IF there was a physical anime club near where you lived with enough copies of whatever they had. I watched Fushigi Yuugi that way, all of the episodes, and I believe I caught the OVA's at my college's anime club, coincidentally.

I just think about how lucky we are to be able to watch the anime that predates this generation...yeah some of the animation is a little outdated but some of the stories are great!

The next generation will probably feel similar.


Well, I think the lack of originality comes from the fact that most things have already been thought of. Nowadays it requires more creativity to come up with something original because most ideas have already been taken. :/

I guess the next generation will be pretty lucky because they'll have even more anime to choose from, and legal streaming may become more abundant as time goes on. Before it was almost impossible to find but now we have sites like Crunchyroll, FUNimation, etc.

Like I said: personal opinion.

Holographs. I wouldn't be surprised if they'd go that far.

I wouldn't say they are lucky... I won't say anime has gotten better or worse what I will say is it has evolved for better or worse. Simply put if those who enjoyed anime long ago liked anime back then, they may not like it anymore because how it has evolved. Chances are if you hate moe you won't really like the current evolution as much as what you had in the past. Others on the other hand will think it is way better because of just the overall art and animation improvements. Its really hard to tell if it has gotten better overall, I do think that moe has improved so much since I had start watching it. That is one type that seems to be getting refined quite a bit right now.



The legit availability on the other hand has certainly improved with crunchy funi and others. I don't know what anyone bootlegs anymore if they live in USA. I think other places are even getting more and more.

I love basically all of the shows the opener mentioned and I feel lucky to be in this generation where we can enjoy anything that we like at any time.

I have lived to see anime / manga culture blossom from almost nothing into what it is today, and I am happy that the newest generation of fans can enjoy the world we helped build for them (with our hard-earned dollars).

I wonder how much better the quality, in terms of visuals and animation will be.
