AA will have a new meaning in the future. xD If you get my drift. I really doubt that anime would come to an end, for example, looking at the manga market.
"Sales of manga fell 4% in Japan last year to 481 billion yen ($4.1 billion) — the fifth straight annual drop, according to the Tokyo-based Research Institute for Publications. Manga magazine sales have tumbled from a peak of 1.34 billion copies in 1995 to 745 million last year.(USATODAY)" However, Manga sales in the USA are as high as $200 million per year, according to data reported in Publishers Weekly."

Being fans ourselves, the trend is to enjoy both mangas and animes (Not that I approve of english dub, it disgusts me. Choose better VAs). Therefore we can come to the conclusion that animes will not become extinct.

[Sorry for the explosion of info but I kind of did a paper on this topic. ]

Regarding chikinini23's point about the 3D animes, I feel that it would really lose it's touch as an anime xD. Then again, who knows what the future holds.

Anime does kill time but its still not a everyday thing. You don't always need anime.

They can't take anime away...I luv it! ^ ^

If they take anime that only leaves those suck-ish cartoons that have absolutely no meaning.
We all probably grew up on it and thats how it should be. All kids need it! ><


(This is only my opinion no need to agree or disagree on it)

If anime comes to end...it doesn't really matter to me... if it ends; its ends... you can live without anime anyways....its not a everyday life thing.... if your too obsessed with anime then i suggest you get help

You CAN live without such as computers, TV's, cellphones, music etc.
But is it just as fun like if you have them ?


I agree you can live without a lot of things but it just makes everything boring!

Anime is going to be in the face of the earth for a very very long time...if there would be an end for anime is that most the character's appearance would be almost identical and they would run out of stories to tell.

I'm pretty sure anime will always be around. But if people are like me and several others here, then the viewer number will go down. I came here and started watching dramas. Now I don't care much for anime unless it's like Shin Chan..which is more of a cartoon >_>

I worry if there isn't alot of good new stuff coming out. I can't wait for new seasons of Elfen Lied, FMP, Ouran High, Monster, or maybe even a Ninja scroll series that turns out to be good like the movie (not like the lame series that was released already. Yuck!). I hope the creators just keep the good stuff coming.

I did recently watch Karas, TTGL, Seto No Hanayomi, and Seirei No Moribito. Karas and TTGL were good. Seto No and Seirei No were REAL GOOD! I'm still laughing at that Terminator dad in that Sailor Moon outfit! BwaHaHaaaa!

wont.
probably because its imporving more each year it had become a source of entertainment to most younger generations.
I bet the babies later on watched anime more than cartoon =.=""
