Since oh lets say 2005 has anime gotten better or worst or just staying the same?

For me it's pretty much staying the same every year there are really good shows and really bad shows and it's all tends to even out. Well that is my point of view lets hear yours

I think that anime has gotten better. There are better plots and better looking animation; However I think that finding that great plot is getting harder.

hmm I think storylines have gotten better. Animation in certian anime is pretty good. but as character design it might be the same. in certian I just want to see some character design thats..well a little different, it would be nice. Thats just what i think.

In general, I think anime's getting better. Comparing the animation quality, writing, acting, and artistic direction of today's anime with those of shows from the early 2000's, I think there's been a definite upward trend over time. Not everything that's released today is superb, but on average, anime now is much better than it was ten years ago.

I'm gonna go with staying the same since it's kind of hard to generalize anime as a whole. Some are better than others, and even that's not completely true since it's just an opinion.

roughly the same.

That's because most of the material has been used up

I say staying the same. There are a lot of amazing shows, like the Hunter x Hunter and Attack on Titan. I feel like those shows are diamonds in the rough though. There are a lot of good shows, but there are few that are mind blowing, but it does show that shows CAN get better.

The same, really. While the animation quality gradually gets better as the time goes by, there's still a mixture of amazing shows, good shows, decent shows, ehhhh-shows and bad ones.

Yeah, animation is definitely getting to a point where it's like "WHOOAAA how did they do that?"

But let's admit it. Some of the plots of recent anime are repulsively bad. At this point, there is just so much anime that newer shows are labeled into tropes or copies or other shows. However, we can't say that all the material has been used up. Of course not. As time passes, society's values changes, and certain trends go on the rise. I mean, something like Dangan Ronpa probably would not have made it past the storyboard stage in the 90s. (I'm assuming.)

And there's a good thing to all of this. It forces artists to be even more creative when it comes to plot and character development.

I think anime is staying the same. Whenever it looks like it may be getting worse, someone will come up with one that is amazing enough to make up for the bad ones.

Staying the same. Anime could never get better or worse than what it is already. There are bad anime, good anime, and some "okay" anime.
