You mean like in the 80's and 90's when sci-fi/mecha anime reigned supreme? Heck yes, I'd watch even more anime.




This man speaks truth.


Sure, there were series like Those Who Hunt Elves, so there was pantsu, and sure there were series with tsunderes, and sure there were the occasionally loli, but there was more to anime than just that, and rarely was it all of this terrible shit in the same package as it is today.

Not hopping on the "Screw lolis, pantsu, tsundere, and moe" bandwagon, but of course I would.

I wanted to say Black Lagoon, but I forgot about the nightclub scene when Rock and Revy were doing some errands for Dutch.

Yes, I would.

Honestly? Even the most pointless loli tsundere is more worthwhile than, like, taking a classic play and making it postmodern, or setting it in World War II for no reason other than because they think World War II is edgy. Which is what happens with productions of classical theater and opera nowadays. Which is my other hobby besides anime. So yes, the "decline," if you want to call it that, is... not so bad.

Also Outbreak Company has a better story than any of the stupid grimdark garbage that's been made in the last 5 years.

Also, like I said before, don't separate out "moe girls" from "attractive characters in general". KuroBas is no better than KinMoza. Neither of them has a worthwhile story.

And, like I said before, if something like Code Geass had normal or bad-looking characters instead of gorgeous ones, I'd just find a prose version and imagine them being pretty and toss the visuals altogether.

If removing pantsu removes all the stupidity from animes like highschoolof the dead I'm all for it.

Not sold on no lolis though. Some are too cute.
Even if I don't like black Bullet that series without Enju loses my interest even more.

Those last two characters heavily damaged their respective shows and Rory almost single handedly took Gate from an 8/10 all the way down to a 3/10 show.

*Gasp* how dare you say that about Rory!!! I'm a good sport though and will except it... begrudgingly.

I'd probably keep on watching, but I'd slowly die from cuteness withdrawal symptoms.

I've been watching anime since the Robotech days. I doubt the lack of these.... very specific sub-genres will deter me.

Pantsu is life Pantsu is love.. If you disagree that is fine, just burn in hell you undeserving heretic and we'll call it even.

Nah seriously though there is a time and place for most things and only self righteous prudes would say anything else..Lolicon is just wrong though.

TLDR Version: Yes but only hesitantly

Yes. None of them are necessary, and often drag a show down anyway.

Possibly a lot more, possibly a lot less. If we got a lot more shows like Another, and other similar shows I'd like it. If we instead get generic anime, I'd probably dislike it a lot, as I do think the budget would shrink getting rid of those things.
