I wouldn't say anime is dying so much as anime companies are convinced that they need to pander to otaku to survive in the current economy.

In all honestly, I would only claim that Anime is dead if the only animes that existed were blatant otaku pandering moe shows.

Anime is certainly still alive and kicking right now. Furthermore, this fall is going to be absolutely amazing.

but most of it would of burned to a crisp by then.

It is iffy if it would extend out that far, but even under the expected scenario, the earth would be close enough that the surface would be hot as mercury.

The interesting thing is that even though that won't happen for about 5 billion years, the sun is expected to become hot enough in a "mere" billion years that the Earth would no longer have any surface water.

So trying to get back on topic from this far distance, unless humans get off this rock, anime will definitely die sometime in the next billion years.

It's declining in some areas and excelling in others. Sure we won't every see Cutie Honey like anime again but at least there is a huge backlog of stuff you can go back and watch. That's one thing CR can get into actually. Otherwise you'll get your manga, novel and game adaptations forever and ever amen. Then the stuff for the fringe like little sister moe and shit like that.

Look on the bright side, neither of us seem like we'll live long enough to see it die.

anyone who thinks that the industry is dying is wrong, and they should feel bad about themselves.

the industry in Japan is as big as it's ever been with more shows coming out per year (quality varies, but that's how it's always been).

the american anime home video market has shrunk quite a bit, but it's been replaced by the huge boom in online streaming services. the majority of shows per season are being licensed for streaming broadcast on sites like Crunchyroll and Funimation, which is a huge step ahead of where maybe 10% of a season's shows would be licenced for home video release and the rest would be left to rot, and you would have to watch fansubs to be able to watch them at all.


Youve hit the nail on the head here...the anime industry has to evolve just like the movie industry does. Blockbuster video is dead, people dont rent dvds from their local store like they used to, Netflix is doing okay but broadening pipe is making streaming easier than it used to be.

Anime offers a value proposition that most movie streaming services dont, in that there is no shortage of new original content and crunchyroll makes it available at a reasonable cost.

I think it can only grow from here. What makes everyone think it's dying? It's only been getting better.

We could just establish bases on Saturn's moons.
Or better yet, travel to alternate dimensions and see what animes they have.
