Really that seems way out of left field.

Well 25 years later Dragon Ball is still enormously popular with tons of new video games and even new anime coming out. I think that it's popularity has dipped slightly with the newest generation of Shounen anime fans who are more in favor of Naruto and Bleach. But I bet DB will remain hugely relevant and popular for at least another ten years and will remain in peoples memories for far longer than that.


Forgot about the Dragonball franchise. I definitely agree, it won't disappear for at least another decade or two.

I agree with Neon Genesis Evangelion. A lot of people are still hardcore fans. Considering the fact that people still make EVA into AMVs during conventions in 2013...

Nah, SAO is big, but I think it'll die out eventually. The novelty will wear off.


I don't think SAO is even that big now. When it first came out it was the bees knees (in terms of popularity), but now, I don't really find anyone talking about it anymore except to bash on it.

Certainly all the "big" ones in the West from the 90's/early 2000's like Dragonball, Sailor Moon, Eva, maybe even Tenchi Muyo! and Rurouni Kenshin(I still see some people talk about those last two).

Bleach and Naruto have shots at it.

Cowboy Bebop will never go away because Adult Swim keeps playing it and the jaded anime fans that grew up in the 90s will always use it as their benchmark for what "good" anime is or when they stopped making good anime.

Trigun still hasn't died down(every convention I've been to, and I've been going to cons since 2006, has had at least one Vash and/or Wolfwood coplayer).

Hellsing is still going at a decent beat.

FMA will probably never die out.

Gurren Lagann still gets talked about and cosplayed from(granted thanks to KILL la KILL GL has gained a new boost of interest as people want to check out the creators' previous work).

I think Madoka has a slight shot of staying power thanks to it being a deconstruction like EVA and GL are(for some reason it seems like deconstruction series tend to have longer legs).

Surprised I haven't seen Fairy Tail on here, that's huge currently my school, and has been for awhile now. There's a lot of people that like that one two, and it's a pretty good series, so I think it will most likely be around for quite awhile. Mind you, I'm not talking 50 years here, maybe around 5-10 at least.

(if someone DID mention Fairy Tale, then my bad. I just kind of skimmed through the comments, ya know?)

I don't think it's that far-fetched, really. CCS was one of the most successful shows to come out of the magical girl craze that Sailor Moon (re)ignited. I'd even go so far as to say that's the show that newcomers like Prisma Ilya owe most of their base formula to, Madoka aside.

Now the question I have about CCS is are we talking the original version or the butchered dub that most Western viewers of the series have as their sole experience with the series?

Cause I'm in the latter camp, and I still have the dub's catchy ass opening burned into my brain.....

I don't find that far left out the field. Cardcaptor Sakura is a classic and one of Clamp's biggest successes and a revolution for Japanese fans when it debuted becoming a massive hit. The manga also achieved universal praise and even towards today, there's talks about the series here and there.

Not to mention that it's made by Clamp. Sailor Moon is obviously bigger due to fanbase, but CCS is still a classic. Those two and Nanoha are the epitome(s?) of magical girl anime.

Maybe I'm saying this because I'm biased, hahah.

Cardcaptors wasn't a bad show it just was westernized heavily with large amount of content removed. If you play episode 1 of Cardcaptors Sakura side by side with Cardcaptors you see frames missing such as the Japanese spiral eyes, when Sakura grows to a giant and stomps her brother, as well as Julian doesn't give Sakura a candy when he leaves in the English version as well Sakura is pronounced differently and everyone except Kero has a different name.

They also dodge a lot of characters' hinted actual sexual orientations.
