Chill out dude. This is the shit I'm talking about. I even went out of my way to point out how I wasn't picking on you.


And, newsflash, you guys do have issues (though, again, I'm technically in that group). I quoted your post for a good reference. :)


More like for a PERFECT reference.

I think it was air pollution and economic inflation. Each generation seems to get weaker and weaker, maybe humanity is on its way out?

I'm not better than any one generation. I'm better than all humans. And no, I don't have any parents. I raised myself. Only morons have parents.

And I quoted it to back up the point about "All you guys before us had, like, slaves, and Cold Wars and housewives and polyester suits, 'n stuff, and you all taught your kids to duck and cover!"
That's sort of the problem with ONLY hearing revisionist history to make yourself feel more enlightened, and then going out under the delusion that you're actually educated. And then why us old guys end up whipping your @$$ at Trivial Pursuit.

LOL. I had no idea someone had reported my post. For what exactly, I don't know.

Same reason I edited one of the replies. Which was the actual bait.
Since most of this is actual discussion, I'm keeping it going but I do request that folks keep the dumb replies out.

Carry on~

Only thing I can think of is is parents spoiling their kids with good intentions.

I don't see it being that big of an issue. Everyone I know grew out of it once they started working or during college.

I've seen a few who did and a few who didn't.... yet. However, I know plenty of older folks who never grew up, too.

Completely agreed on the part regarding the increase of narrative complexity of entertainment media

Those who keep complaining about "oh why can't we have more philosophical anime" can shut up once they take a look at the bulk of older anime titles

Can't I go one minute without one of you guys calling me stupid because of my age?

Seconded.

I started watching anime over 15 years ago. Anime viewing was starting to pick up in the States, but still a lot harder to get anything fresh aired in Japan. So, a lot of the stuff I started with was stuff aired on late-night movie channels (Cinemax, I believe). This included Akira, 3x3 Eyes (actually Korean, I think), Perfect Blue, and Princess Mononoke. Those were good. Then you had the stuff airing on cartoon network.... not quite so good. BUT, I loved it all.

As much as I loved it, it didn't come close to the availability of quality anime, or the average quality of anime, we have today.

Oh, the days when anime was a mainstream commercial product for everyone during afternoons and prime time, and not a Social Problem, to eradicate horny late-nite unemployed girl-timid slackers from a troubled society...

So when did all the "You'd better WORK, hikkikomori!" ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXkhku-Zo9M ) balkanizing/persecution of anime fans start, anyway?
We know it came during the Recession, which puts it past 1990, and it must have predated Welcome to the NHK, since that was the first gunshot, but did it start with that child-molester case?

Well, that's another point about Millennials:
The previous generations got rid of the Cold War, and got rid of Segregation, the current generation got rid of Bush Jr., and now half want to get rid of Muslims and the other half want to get rid of Donald Trump.

Now they think if they band together, they can get rid of ANYONE who's mean to them.
Or maybe that's just left over from the days of the schoolyard and lunch tables.

We don't call Millennials "stupid" because of their age. We call Millennials "stupid" when they get their facts wrong.

Really, you actually said "committed genocide on the economy". And millennials wonder. Please use dictionary when you don't understand words. It makes you sound so stupid.
