According to my MAL, I've completed 258 anime so far and I'm currently watching 38 shows. Last year, I started trying to get 100 additional completed entries in a year in an effort to whittle down my backlog/expand my anime horizons.

ALL of you will go through this eventually......You will hit burnout on anime after about 15-20 years, just like everyone in my highschool anime club did. & when you start watching again, it won't be with the furvor & passion you had in your Noob Years. You'll take a cynical approach to new series, learning about them in advance, longing for the old days because they've changed so much.


I wonder what anime will be like in 15-20 years. 3 dimensional?


Actually, after a while thinking about it, I think I could possibly predict the future of anime. & it all depends to how Japan adapts to Online Anime.

I remember an old news story about either an Manga Cafe or Manga Library in South Korea temporarily crushing the Manhwa Economy, because no one was buying & everyone was borrowing for free. Lots of publishers folded & many series were cancelled. Here in America, most people get their anime & manga online for free, so even though we're not effecting the sale of physical copies sold in Japan, we could still hurt the manga & anime industry slowly in the long run.

Okay, to the point.....

I forsee anime going the way of video games..... Producers will be less willing to take risks, so anime will become more generic & samey. Most anime will be insultingly low budget (though never as bad as it was in the 60s) & only based on best selling manga series. Others will be ones the company sinks their entire budget into 2 projects at a time, meaning failure to push enough DVDs will bankrupt the animation studio (looking at you, Square Pictures). Not too likely though, as anime has a simplified design & won't require the insane budget of something demanding more realistic textures.

Now for the optimistic future.

The animation studios & manga publishers will follow Crunchyroll's example by using the Free To Play MMO Model, where you have a choice between a subscription or putting up with ads, plus a store that sells merchandise, giving some revenue back to the animation company.
