Like half these anime are some OC 91201 type shit, about some stupid kid in high-school and his 3 girls and whatever drama he's in and occasionally the girls will flash their low cut skirts towards the screen for some fan service or do some wierd sexual shit so the audience watching it will continue watching it. Not to mention every other anime with some teen age kid who gets a whole bunch of girls and they do dumb shit together, it's like this is some viewers' sexual foreplay fantasy. Anime like this needs to be removed, it is absolute trash.

Good anime would be like Stein's Gate, Death Note, FullMetal, Ghost in the Shell, PsychoPass. There should also be some more family friendly anime like Nobunaga no Shinobi. And there should be an option to filter out all the shit anime, like through some filter that says what age group it's intended for, what type of people it's intended for (like people who want a good story like Breaking Bad, or folks who just want some softcore porn) as well as sorting anime by who wrote the story, or if the anime won/was nominated for any awards(like the Tokyo Anime Award), etc...

If you don't like it, then don't watch it. It's pretty simple. Go to Japan and complain about it.

I had the same reaction. It's a picture of Marlon Brando from the 1958 film The Young Lions where Brando plays a Wehrmacht lieutenant, but it's inexplicably called "1933 Wehrmacht Officer.jpg", even though the Wehrmacht didn't formally exist until '35??

I wouldn't say every anime is like that, but I believe the problem is that a lot of anime is aimed at teenagers and their supposed insipidness, in one way or another.

1) Anime companies make anime for a wide variety of "tastes" to capture as large a consumer base as possible and make as much money as possible

2) if you don't like a certain type of anime don't watch it, nobody is holding a gun to your head and forcing you

3) well you made you views on what is good anime vs. shit anime don't expect everyone else on the planet to agree with you and it is a bit arrogant to assume your view is "right"and anyone who disagrees is wrong, as an example i also think Stein's gate is a great Anime, but i have met others who hate it, neither I nor Them are wrong it's all just personal preference which is only valid for the individual not society as a whole.

I still watch the high school stuff but I do appreciate it when a drama, comedy, or slice of life steers away from high school kids.

It's far more relatable dealing with adult issues rather than high school misunderstandings for the up tenth time.

A lot of anime is targeted to Japanese otaku who dump $300-400 dollars on box sets and more for related merchandise on such shows. Minimal effort, maximum profit, from a business standpoint not much of a reason to break from the cycle.

There are plenty of good high school anime, but I know the type you are talking about. Cookie cutter dense male lead in harem with 3 or 4 generic arch types vying for his attention. You watch 2 or 3 of those shows, you have essentially seen them all.

most anime is aimed at the stereotypical otaku in Japan, which is why there's so many anime that either focus on moe or fanservice.
making anime is not cheap, and anime companies literally live and die depending on the otaku approval - they are the ones that spend the equivalent to thousands of dollars a year on anime merchandise (that's no exaggeration by the way - a single 1-cour series in BD can easily cost $250 ~ $350. a ton more if it includes promotional / exclusive materials). anime companies need to sell their products otherwise they'll go bankrupt and go out of business.

edit: replace "maximum profit" with the "need to break even", as "maximum profit" make it seem as though making anime is an extremely profitable business.

I usually just avoid the high school anime type and look for something showing more action.
