Why is there so much blood in recent anime?

Hopefully this will be a short rant;

I watch the first episode of everything and it seems to me a lot of these average anime are pointlessly adding in gore for no good reason. It's like they want their audience to take them seriously so they add some blood splatter to a sword swing. If you want me to take your show seriously, give me a compelling plot and interesting characters! stop doing all this stupid gimiky stuff, it's an embarrassment to the entertainment medium as a whole.

You don't need all this pointless violence, at this point it's just getting in the way. Look at Legend of Korra for an example; no blood what-so-ever and the general consensus is that it's an awesome show.

Sorry if it's a little ranty/preachy, I'm just so tired of watching another anime go down the toilet. I'm 35/41 of the way through this Fall Season's episode 1s so I might be a little angsty.

To be fair, quite a few recent shounen/seinen anime have been poorly adapted from the source material.

You're right for the most part, though.

Is it wrong that I'm so desensitized to blood that I don't notice these things?

Blood? In most of the recent animes I've watch there is always a tit grab scene.

Examples of anime abusing blood/gore/violence would be extremely helpful.

I notice (and love) there is a lot of boobies and pantsu in recent anime, and that's awesome, but I don't notice an increase in blood perse... also some action is cool ;3

I would think of Akame ga Kill first, which really went a little too far quite a few times, at least in my personal oppinion, but otherwise? I can not say that I've noticed a growth in gory shows recently, plus Terra Formers kinda reversed my oppinion on that. Yeah, the first epsiode of Parasyte was really gory, but then again, that's a horror Anime, what did you expect?
There are always shows that are a little too bloody for my personal taste, to the point where it's unneeded or downright disgusting (*cough* Kara no Kyoukai *cough*) but that's nothing new. I point you to Berserk for reference.

op is ranting about blood (which there really isn't much off) rather than ranting about the plague known as fan service and jello tits? mmm... seems legit.

The flippant answer: We come into the world screaming and covered in gore. Why should our entertainment be any different?

I'm actually more concerned with the increase in rape scenes which actually do nothing to move the story along. I've been dropping shows because of that.

Blood and tits, they key to attract a bigger audience.
Because fuck the plot
