It ain't Moe that sells anime, it's fan service. Maybe Moe is the female demographics biggest lure in sales, not entirely sure but anime fans are so damned pernickity they whinge when adult anime like Berserk gets made because they don't like the quality - damned Otaku are the biggest issues with modern anime if you ask me. It's them that wants anime a certain way, it's them that wants to stop it going into mainstream streaming services and them that the studios most care about as they're making 90% of all anime these days about school kids which naturally I can't say I relate to given my age

Why do I watch anime? For entertainment. Do moe anime entertain me? Some do, and some don't. So, I watch the ones that do entertain me, like K-on, and don't watch the ones that don't entertain me, like Dragon Maid (haha actually that's a lie I watched the entirety of Dragon Maid, but I do agree it was pretty shit. Let's see, an example of a moe anime that I dropped would be, idk, Brave Witches or Ange Vierge? If those count).

Either way, though, they're not what's keeping your precious shows from getting second seasons. Studios aren't going to make them if they're not going to make enough money, whether there are moe shows or not, and that's all there is to it. Actually, it's more complicated than that, but you get my point. Also, the one affecting HxH is Togashi and his health, not anything else.

Also, to you other guys, Madoka Magica is most definitely not a moe anime. Does it have some moe characters? Sure. But you can't call the show itself a moe one. Well, you can, but you'll be wrong.

I meant do you agree School Live is equally a part of "real" anime as much as Madoka is. They're very similar.

Not really worth it, but I'll bite.

First off, "moe" is a pretty broad stroke definition. A whole bunch of different shows in a bunch of different genres can all be lumped in as "moe" if all you go by is visual style. As such it's a pretty silly generalization to say that all "moe" anime is lacking in story or character development. It's also a mistake to assume that just because something isn't "moe" means it's better than something that is. If you hate the "moe" visual style than that's on you as a personal taste thing and, yes, there are a lot of anime out right now that use a moe-ish style. That sucks for you, I get it, but it is a personal taste thing not an "anime is dying because X" thing.

Second, I like a lot of stuff that could be considered "moe trash" because I do enjoy the art style and I like the diversity of stories it can tell. I'm tired of dudes punching each other in the face while screaming incoherently because of supposedly "deep" psychological issues. I'm tired of every story having to be about world beating and super villains and being a "hero." When I want that, I can just as easily get it in Western media. Western media, on the other hand, doesn't often do the smaller scale stuff that you usually see in "moe trash." And, at the end of the day, I still watch what I'm interested in. I'll give almost anything at least a try because I'm not going to let a visual style (or a sense of personal insecurity) tell me what I should or shouldn't enjoy.

Anime is a business. If a particular style of anime isn't profitable, they will stop making it. If you don't like it, don't buy the disks, don't buy the merchandise, and don't watch it on the streaming sites. For those of us outside Japan, the last one is very important. The streaming companies choose which shows to purchase streaming rights based on things like what has gone over well with their audiences in the past. If people stopped the moe anime they currently have the rights to, the sites would be a lot less likely to buy their streaming rights in the future.

My personal opinion on moe is that it can be good and bad. I found Maid Dragon amusing and fun. But, Love Live does nothing for me. If you really want

If you want your favorite anime to get more seasons, instead of complaining about a particular form of anime, buy the disks and merchandise tied to your favorite anime while trying to get more people to watch it.

If you're having Moe problems I feel bad for you son. I've got 99 problems but Moe ain't one.

I agree with you, OP.

I like it and find it entertaining and cute.

That's all the explanation I need to give.

Which is why this looks interesting to me

OP was probably triggered by Eromanga-sensei.
