If a certain anime did not exist, how would it affect the anime catalog, or you personally?

Let's say if Dragon Ball never existed, I think we would be missing some shonens, the big ones at that.

the "never-ending shonen" genre would not be a thing, and anime would be better for it.

If sailor moon never was around, i would probably have never got into anime, and anime would be much less magical with out it

If we never had "Ghost in the Shell", it won't only affect anime., It would also mean we would never have "The Matrix".

If Gundam didn't exist a good portion of real mecha show woudn't exist and I think pacifc Rim woudn't exist either.. there be a bigger ripple effect than that I can think on right now.

If K-On was never made, we probably wouldn't have any Moeblob shows today.

Whether it's a good or bad thing is up to you.

If Evangelion never existed maybe there wouldn't be as many wimpy MC's in anime and manga.

Hmm, I'm sure somebody would have decided to ride off the coattails of Lucky Star. It was quite the success, after all.

But yea, there'd probably be far fewer moe shows. So glad K-On is around.

--------------------------------------

Anyway, if the Devil is a Part-Timer didn't exist, I wonder if these recent supernatural role reversal shows would be less common. Y'know, the kind that follow the demon lord instead of the Hero.

Or was there a popular show like that out before it? Where the demon lord is the actual protagonist? 'Shrugs" ~ can't think of any off hand. Seems like it almost started the genre - or at least popularized it.

If Space Battleship Yamato didn't exist the anime space drama genre would probably not exist. The series set the standard and is still a touchstone.
