I get the feeling some of the anime fans might be asking for too much.

That is quite the interesting take on things and I can certainly see what you are saying. I suppose the reason why I enjoyed the second half so much is because I really bit hard on the whole storyline with Mamoru and Maria. Their interactions with the monster rats and the ending outcome of that whole scenario still make me cringe whenever I think about them. Thinking about it though, a lot of the second half of the show did play things by the book where it could have been much stronger. However, I do think it played with these conventions the best it could and did things with them that made the show still very good.

That came out a bit stronger than I'd intended too, it frustrates me a bit but I didn't mean to rant that much.

I can see how it all would've worked in the book, too. It just didn't translate for me well I guess.

This is why I'm not a stingy type fan.


Just watch it and enjoy it.



But then again, when it comes to a certain show I want to see back...

Hmm, what about if it has source material and it is merely an anime adaption. Assuming we consider the source to be "art", can't the adaptation be "art" for it's characters, plot, and themes?


There is that, but there's also to consider that producing an anime is an entirely different process from producing a light novel or manga series. Both the source material and the anime adaptation are art, but very different kinds of art.

Don't feel sad. I still love anime but I just get a little annoyed that there aren't any ANIME series. So much manga, light novels, video games, and etc turned into an anime series. I kinda just want an ANIME series in all honesty.

Anime is changing with the times in Japan. Not for the better either. It's becoming more niche in it's home country judging from sales. That's because everything is becoming more expensive so less risks are taken by everyone. The producers, retailers and consumers all want the best bang for their yen. So you get remakes, remasters and rehashes galore. With even less time for leisure consumers go to the tried and tested and the producers and retailers see that. But as long as manga exists originality will always be there.

The Internet is breathing new life into the industry and its also giving us more choices. With things turning subscription based distributors now have a near endless steam of money to give producers which helps them producer more anime. When trends develop they are more likely to get something similar to that trendsetter. It's actually become quite simple these days. I can't get mad if I see a large portion of a certain anime type produced. It just means the standouts are that much more likely to get the exposure they deserve.

There are still good anime series coming out just like in the past but we also get a lot of shitty shows... just like in the past.

Not much has changed, at least not in my eyes 'cause I still enjoy anime.

Some of you feel like Japan isn't even trying anymore while some others do not.

The point being is that anime is obviously changing and some things are losing what it use to be.

Now, anime is nothing but a business. Is there still originality?

Are we asking too much?

Is anime(popularity wise) as large as we think it is?

Bonus Questions:

1. How do you feel about how anime is now vs. in the past?

2. What are your feeling towards this?

Enjoy!!!


I think from our perspective they are not trying to please the American market. Out of all the anime that has comes out every year how much of it are hits series or movies here? Not very many. With Asia overall economy that was hit hard, the Anime market changed over there, thus changing over here. The competition got tough and quality went down. Attack on Titan (AOT) could be a better series but the actual quality of the art work is not very good.

Not very much originality is really coming out from the Asian market that would satisfy the American taste for anime. Also there isnt very much crossover I would like to see. Halo, Animatrix, Dante's Inferno, The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury, just to name a few I wanted to see more of.

Were not asking to much we just want more. Not rehashed old series being released on DVD which happens alot. There are only a few series including live action movies that I will watch over and over again. Old anime is good for new anime fans.

Its still not as big at least here in America, yes its growing. DBZ was a perfect example of getting anime out there in 2000. The problem was it wasnt getting translated fast enough over here and many people lost interest due to the numerous reruns on TV. When Halo came out it exposed more people to anime primarily the video game market. Also, for AOT to be the next big series in the US its still not hitting past the Anime Fan base. Its all about the money the cheapest best series you can make that people will still watch or buy.

When a popular series or movie does come out they dont seem to "continue it or expand it" 2 Examples are Akira, Death Note

Honestly I feel like now they are rushing to make these Anime series. Only time will tell. For me I will say because I am very picky about what I watch its hard for me to find a good series that I will actually watch all the way through.
