I'm sorry I just have to rant a little bit but what happen to anime.. When I was growing up You get great shows like yuyu hakusho, outlaw star, dragonball z, rurouni kenshi an so on. but nowadays nothing but these Girly anime shows are coming out or freaking magical girl.. yaoi type anime seems to be popular. I just dont get it. i dont even watch half the line up when shows come out anymore. unless an anime is hit like naruto or have ecchi scenes (tits an ass) showing they dont make it anymore. Are japanese viewers so freaking creepy they cant rate a good show when they see it anymore??? I know I'm not gonna like every show that comes out but to me it seems like 70% of shows that come out anymore are terrible. 20% are decent an that last 10% are good.. Just my opinion on matter though. like to hear everyone elses thoughts as well.

Ah, the good old, "70's music was so great" argument. You only say such things because you only saw the best of the time, all the trash has been lost and forgotten since. The same will happen a decade from now, where people will say "is it me or is all anime shit now, back in the day there were great shows like Katanagatari and Madoka magica, but now there's so much crap ecchi holograms or lame ass slice of life soap brain-movies."

Basically, you're not looking hard enough.

Not just your imagination. Anime creation studios are shitting alot of harem/loli animes and will continue doing so in hopes of finally making one that gains popularity and the reason for it is because they tend to get popular more easily and they are relatively low budget. This is also why the creator of Akame Ga Kill wanted to end the series sooner and get back to work on his harem mangas.

Basically the plan is to shit low budget animes till one catches on and then sell the merchandise like mad.

You got to dig through a whole bunch of donkey doo before you find the diamonds.

Companies need to make money, and the easiest way is to shovel out what is popular. The masses will eat it up, therefore lining the companies pockets. As long as we continue to eat up "half assery" companies will continue. We the consumers do have a lot of say in what the companies will produce. If they see that Magical Girl Moe Yaoi is in then there is what we shall be seeing in large chunks. It's easier for them and safer. Though there are still plenty of great series out there, you just need to know where to look.

Well, I mean, to be fair, the 70's were great for music. I mean, just listen to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=22&v=i_WEMCUhF0E

The last good anime I truly enjoyed and completed was Sword Art Online I and this was back in 2014

Nowadays I keep dropping everything and have a hard time getting into new anime

I've been against anything that trades plot for fan-service for a few years now.

Anytime I see that garbage I just drop a "Miyazaki was right."

Basically the anime industry is full of sexually repressed Otaku, most with very little social skills, who only know how to interact with other Otaku. And as a result we get "waifu bait," "bate bait," "Generic Harem Number 452," "'GET IN THE ROBOT SHINJI' main characters," and just panty shots. Panty shots everywhere. Even on the under-aged. Without joking and using a Dank 'Maim,' it's disgusting.

Is that a dig at Neon Genesis Evangelion? Seems a bit out of place in that comment...

I'm using a meme to make fun of weak-willed main characters, which has become a more prevalent thing as of late.

I really enjoyed Tales of Zesteria, Jojo, and Naruto of course, but fall isn't looking too good overall. I can't wait for Kuroko no Basket extra game to be animated, though.


I wish I could do that v
