Hmmmm, what about Shakugan no Shana?


Is that a rhetorical question?

Mmm, but see, you mention a lot of archetypes used later that were pioneered (or made popular, I don't know enough anime history) by SnS. Isn't that part of what being a classic means? That it produces archetypes that are mimicked again and again? That's how it works in the literary world; someone does something cool or does something well enough to make it popular, and then it is reproduced again and again by others.

well i really enjoyed AOT, i miss it now its finished. i'd like people to point out the flaws cos i, and a lot of others, must have missed them lol.
maybe its cos we havent read the manga first?


I'm also a big fan of Attack on Titan, but I think I've been able to notice some of the flaws in it.
Most of it has to do with the characters--we know very little about them, and they don't have much development as the series progresses. I think the first season was simply too focused on progressing the plot that it forgot to develop its characters. There are also the pacing issues that take place in certain episodes--where characters are just standing around talking about what's going on--and they didn't really have to show EVERY character's reaction to something. I mean, in a way, it makes sense, but for the viewer, it just drags things along.
I think what the season needed was more character interaction, so that we could learn learn more about the characters and their motivations. (For example, I would LOVE to learn why someone like Krista would join the military in the first place...)

As far as the original post goes, I think it's too soon to tell for anime series that just came out in the years from 2010 onward. I think if we look at what series we can remember from this time in the 2020's or 2030's, then it'll be easier to see what's considered a classic. I mean, we see such shows as Cowboy Bebop, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and even DBZ as classics because they're still remembered after all these years. The same will probably go for the stuff coming out post-2010.
If I were to make a prediction, though, I'd probably say Naruto: Shippuden (it's still going, so at least part of it counts as post-2010), Madoka Magica, Sword Art Online, Attack on Titan, Steins;Gate, Anohana, Kill La Kill, Hunter X Hunter... Just know that these predictions are not based on how good I think the series are (I don't even watch Shippuden), but on how popular they are. DBZ has a ton of flaws, but it's still considered a classic. The same could possibly be said for these series in the future. We'll just have to wait and see when the time comes.

i noticed these points as i watched it and i agree that there definitely could have been more background for the characters, (i always felt as if it were coming up in the next episode) but i dont know, i never felt like b**ching about it. maybe i will after years of analyzing anime haha

hmmm for me personally shows like Attack on Titan, Future Diary, Angel Beats and a couple others. Just like in the gaming fandom, in the Anime fandom im on the boat of people that say Anime today is no worse than it was before and that all the anti modern anime stuff is mostly exaggerated whining

Well, I agree, it's really hard to find a gem in the ruff these days. However, Haganai has promise. I believe most are going to remember AOT. I personally haven't watched it yet, but everyone I know has been talking about it.

I have the feeling that people who always claim that the new animes suck compared to the old ones didn't even watch enough shows to make the claim.

To begin with we're only 3 years away from 2010 and in these 3 years there are a lot of good anime that have been produced. Other people have listed them already and threadstarter is claiming like there has been no good anime in these 3 years.

You think old anime is better? Well that's entirely subjective. I've been in this hobby for a long time (estimate would be 18 years at least) and I've seen a lot of these classics that people keep on praising and to be quite frank I find the new ones to be just better.

Definitely Chihayafuru. I also think Humanity Has Declined will be as well, though it will be more of a cult classic than anything else.

Madoka Magica yes. Attack on Titan, probably yes too.
