Don't really care, if its good it doesn't matter if its 2 episodes or 600 episodes.

As someone who absolutely loves long running shows like Naruto and One Piece, it kinda saddens me too. Most of it also the highschool slice of life/romcom stuff that I don't like at all lol. I have yet to look at AniChart and go "Awesome this looks like it's gonna be a really good action anime!", rather I find myself saying "Alright another season of stuff we've already seen the past few seasons"

Sadly, it seems the just want to make a quick buck. I only watch anime to see interesting scenes of LNs and Mangas that I enjoy. Anime really skims over details that are truly great. Plus, fillers and the dreadful plot changes like Akame Ga Kill and Highschool DxD Season 3.

It doesn't help that this site seems to avoid streaming anime that is a little more on the "adult" side. I've noticed that the few number of animes that were really good and released in the past few years with mature content and thought-provoking plots haven't been on this site. I keep seeing family-friendly, child-like, plotless anime that would only appeal to a thirteen year old with below average attention spans.

I don't know if it's licensing issues or what, but I do know they used to have a lot more mature anime on this site. It's disappeared and was replaced with absolute bologna.

I'll go on a limb here and say those 2 words............ Production... Committee.

Before, there were no such things. Creators have much ample freedom to be risky when it comes to how much story and episodes to release, and whether it'll sell or no. (This is why most animes from back then, would have 'bout 50-75 episodes). Nowadays, animes pass thru a Production Committee. Each one has a say as to whether the show must be cut short, how the series should end, and how much earnings are projected into this. Sadly, even if some of these said members have no clue or background into the anime's storyline and the pain of makin' em, they still have their say. Part of said committee would be those involved in merchandise/collectibles and DVDs. With most animes bein' shown online or via streaming, this becomes an added factor as well.

This is only somethin' I'm throwing in here from what I can surmise. Aint sure if this sheds proper light to your query, but if it does, then glad to help.

I also have noticed a lot of more mature content going to competitor sites examples :prison school or gangsta I guess you could argue My wife is student body president has uncensored version but its only 7 minute anime, All we hear about is licenses blah blah drink the coolaid I don't believe the restrict. I get funi...... gets shows but 9 times out of 10 when its on funi it also shows up on Hulu presently they have this on line up
Overlord
Gangtsa
Charlette
Ninja Slayer
Duraxx2
Waganori 3
Classroom Crisis
Shimoneta
A lot of those shows are on CR or funi so for CR to say cant get shows due to licenses not buying it...............

Noragami has another season, it should be premiering this fall season!

It makes economic sense, you see. 12 episodes on an unknown quantity is much less riskier than 24 episodes of an unknown quantity. And their opinion is, "if its popular, we can always bring it back for another cour"... gez. Reading this thread has made me want to rewatch Shirobako. will do so now

Anime is basically advertisement for manga/LN that's what I've read in the past anyways.
