Ive been watching anime for a good 15 years before we used to have to get vhs imports from japan or if you had a japanese friend in canada they had japanese satalite channels so we would go there to watch like dragonball and shit before its release on ytv back in the day.

early millenium up until about 2008-2010 we had animes that would reach like a 50 episode minimum now its like these animes cant make it over 25 episodes but they build on characters and stories like there getting for a detective conan run 700 episodes plus lmfao.

even there seasons are only making ti 12 episodes we gotta wait half year before we get another season and almost forget about the show LOOK WAT HAPPEND TO HUNTER X HUNTER MY GOD HELP ME WHILE IM YOUNG CAN HE JUST SIGN OVER THE RIGHTS TO SOMEONE HE TRUST TO FINISH THE EFFIN MANGA

anywho lol just wonder why like 3 or 4 of my spring animes all just ended. like :
is it wrong to try to pick up girls in a dungeon WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY ARE YOU FINISHEDDD???
triage x WTFFFFFF
YONA OF THE DAWNN corny butt gooooood whyyyyyyyyy

Black bullet SICKKK
WORLD BREAK WASSS DOPEEEEE THEY COULDA WENT SOOO FAR
WHERE THE HELL IS TERRAFORMARS THAT WASNT EVEN FAIR JUST NEVER CAME BACK OUT

I feel like the mangas/LN get all summarized and smashed into one or 2 seasons skipping a lot of good parts. Just make a quick buck. It's quite unfortunate. That's why I've adopted the reading side of the hobby as well.

I'm more curious why they're mostly high school aged/settings and well endowed in the chest area...

*Reminisces about the times where a season of anime appeals to different demographics of people*

I literally feel like I deserve a medal for getting through that.

For a serious answer... Well, anime isn't cheap, nor is it easy to make, and committing to a long arse series when it isn't guaranteed that it will even be successful sounds like an awful business plan to me. I'm not going to pretend to know a lot about the industry, so I can only speculate that making anime was a lot cheaper back in the day. I doubt these companies will have the money spare for all the expenses involved in making an excessively long series.

YAH man totally i had to start reading the mangas i usually only was reading naruto one piece bleach toriko but then i ahd to start picking up the other ones cause if they didnt take the half year to bring out second season it just finished and i guess funding was a problem. its wierd though 5 years ago i was streaming all my anime and then crunchyroll starts with the amount of investment people like us put into this its a little ridiculous that we can get some good old long running animes out all of the animes that have been running for 100 episodes plus are all finishing or climaxing. These little animes that keep comming up have no body or story to them you know

thats true i can agree with that its not. For some of the bigger animes though and you can tell where the investment was made. i just wish they wouldnt build stories and characters the way they do and then boom its over your kinda sitting there like sooo am i ever gonna find out ...so on and so on lol i just get stumped and then find my self making outrageous fan theories in my head lol. One of the best things i loved about naruto was the fact that every week it was a constant like oh this is gonna happen and then BOOM something else and your mind got blown like whooaa i just noticed that quality of story and character is starting to lose to the actual animation .

One theory I have is that about 12 episodes is the standard length for one anime season.

They were waiting on more material for Magi I'm pretty sure. Crossing my fingers for that third season popping up soon, regardless of it being one giant ass flashback. (probably around chapter 300+ish btw)



I'm not big on the short seasons, I do like my standard 24 episodes or so, but it's not awful for the types of shows they're doing. Most of them would get so boring after awhile.

Yea I'm with you I am so sick of the child main characterless and high school settings. Why can't they produce more thoughtful and mature content with god forbid adult main characters.

Flashbacks and fillers are the worst give me real episodes please. I can remember thinking same thing about Nana 5 years ago> I would think they have tons of Manga chapters this is the year for another season of the anime alas that's not happening. I have moved on to other shows and trying not to get pulled in one direction of hope

It would be pretty dope if that 3rd season dropped but yah its a big ass flash back lol with nothing but magis from back in the day lol but nonetheless interesting the war in the manga right now is soo real..

definatly more down for adult main characters i dont even mind the eechi/harem parts of certain animes but they have been doing it with children latly and i watch my anime on a 47 inch tv lol its a little embarassing sometimes when i have company and all there is is titties and panties on the screen lmao its soo annoying im like REALLY GUYS RIGHT NOW IN THE MIDDLE OF A FIGHT . AND THEY NEED TO GET AWAY FROM THIS LITTLE SISTER IN LOVE WITH THE OLDER BROTHER BULLSHIT . I understand but theres a line between sibling love and i wanna marry you love and lol and they seem to not know the difference i need more shows proper ones im soo sad fate stay just finished like that had me soo hopeful
