How do you think today's recent anime will be seen in 10 years?

Seeing as how we have our classics these days (Evangelion, Death Note, etc.), how do you think today's shows will be seen in the year 2025?

Are there any you think will stand the test of time? Maybe short-form anime will find a loyal fanbase?

Will 'typical moeblob' still be the thing that invokes ire in modern anime fans, much like 'typical shonen' was some time ago, or will there be a new subject to be annoyed at.

Will people look back at Naruto with passion, or will it fade into obscurity like Bleach did (At least it did to me.) after its run ended?

I don't think there will be much a huge difference, but that ultimately depends on the technology of the time. There is a huge quality difference between Anime now than that of 10+ years ago. Short of maybe more 3D anime, there isn't really any real leaps to accomplish for special effects in them and you can only improve animation to a point. Resolution will ultimately be biggest change and future tech.

But think back, the original Gundam is old by today's standards, but still has a large fan base, Dragonball saga as well. For all you know, years from now, you will a random urge and watch Bleach from start to finish. That truly decides the good ones from the bad ones, interesting and fun to watch again.

Most are going to be forgotten as have most that aired at the same time as the "classics" but there are some recent ones that will clearly become part of the anime HoF. Steins;Gate, Clannad, FMA:B for example are already classics and they're relatively recent.

If you mean from within the last couple years, there definitely some that have the potential.... honestly, im not sure which ones specifically. It seems like it takes a couple years to really see if they hold up down the road. Attack on Titan almost definitely will just because of it being a cultural phenomenon. SAO likely will since its both absurdly popular and ongoing. Especially since I think in 10 years it will be seen as a large influence on current VR tech.

As for the moe culture going on, I dont know. I think it will stick around. Anime has been heading in that direction for a while. But fewer shows from that genre are going to become classics since I feel like its more of a "closet" taste.

This is a really fascinating article that sort of explains the moe trend as far as artstyle goes.

probably as "old people stuff"(not alot of people in this day and age have the spectacular preference for the golden years of animation 80's-90's). Whenever I try to start a conversation about any anime from the 90's most of my friends call me an "old fogey". I think this generation of animation will probably stick around for a few more years.

they'll be seen as classic masterpieces that the anime currently airing can't hold a candle against.

Some stuff like Attack on Titan I think will be remembered. The popularity of the big 3 (except One Piece) would decrease a lot. A new big 3 might pop up somewhere. Some people will look at the art style and go like "wow, I don't think I can watch this". I'm thinking the art style would be very different in the future, but idk. Maybe the anime in the future will be all Dada and they'll look at our recent stuff and be like "This stuff makes sense! Not as much mind f*ck and symbolism."

Or they can have the same thoughts as me and be like "This anime is pretty old, but it's very good. Wish they can remake this with more timeless animation though."

The outdated animation will really be a turn-off in the future, as shows like NGE are now. That's how I feel about video games too. Outdated game mechanics and visuals hold back everything else. Lots of people are always going on about how they don't care about visuals and how visuals aren't significant, but that's just ideological thinking. Visuals aren't the driving feature of the anime but there's also no way someone could disregard visuals entirely. It's like saying, wow I enjoyed NGE with that outdated animation and would enjoy no more and no less if the visuals were better. Of course you'd take the version with better visuals.

Yeah, it won't be much different from how it worked in the past. Some gems will live on, some gems will be forgotten, and a lot of bad and mediocre anime will be forgotten as well. And then there will be the typical "this show is overrated" BS.

After all, storytelling and the stories themselves haven't changed much over the years. What's really changed is the technology; how anime are created and produced. And ultimately, that really isn't what anime is remembered for.

The number of ecchis with limited plot and young characters will probably do nothing for the sexual deviant (pedophile) stereotype. There are a few anime that might be claimed as on par with Evangelion, but you have to dig really deep to find them, and there will be disagreement as to which they are.

It's hard to say at this point. Shows like Attack on Titan, Psycho-Pass, Fairy Tail (which might still be continuing well into 2025), One Piece (see Fairy Tail), and Steins;Gate are going to keep on living, but the majority of shows are just going to be a footnote. We'll see about that.

Just like how no one talks about the ''Meh'' anime from the 90s and older (though the extremely bad ones might still be in some people's memory), people in 2025 will only talk about the big hits, or cult classics. What defines a classic afterall is the mark it left on history.

This season alone is probably the best in a while but I don't know if it means anime has reach its peak, or that it might get even better.Hopefully moeblob shows are just a trend, though I don't want to imagine what could be more annoying.

Stuff like Fate/Zero and Attack on Titan will be remembered.
Other stuff like Tokyo Ghoul will be forgotten

New golden age of anime most likely. Retaining all the good story-telling elements with none of the cost-cutting.
