why don't they make good anime anymore? Just look at the charts, shit is disgusting. As the years pass the number of good anime per season decreases heavily, to the point where I watch 1 or maybe 2 new anime in a year. And I'm not talking about "old people not liking new stuff" bullshit, I'm talking plots, storytelling, and art has become a copy of copy of a copy of something good.
Industry too geared towards producing what sells, a lot of shows that even try to be unique and are genuinely good don't sell because they aren't moeshit or harems.
Risk not worth the reward for studios.
You don't need to ask him, I think it's obvious he has objective taste.
I wholeheartedly agree, sadly the only thing we can do is endure this and hope that somehow they'll start producing more quality series again. Despera will save anime.
Holy shit that is retarded. There is not such thing as objectively good, so it is very relevant to ask what anime he actually considers good, since he seems to find modern anime so terrible.
>being this much of a pleb
anime with persona art that are original and well made. anime with good plots that make you think and not the usual shit we see every season.
anime has become infested with boring art that is repeated in every show you see. protagonists and supporting characters are clones and in almost every anime they remind you of some other character.
prove it. the truth of what I'm saying is there, I almost no need arguments to prove every chart is filled with shitty animes, sometimes I know it before watching them, just by looking at the poster I know it's going to suck and guess what, I'm usually right. they suck.
I've been watching anime since 2000, and I can easily say that you are full of shit. Every season is always about the same, there is your regular sol, harem and shonen.
Alternative stuff like Mononoke was never the norm.
Sort of, but adult anime viewers are less pedo and more escapist touchless virgins who just want to self-insert themselves into unrealistic sexual situations with cute girls. They don't give a shit about anything but a basic action oriented narrative and moeblob females they can daydream about.
anime seasons used to have many different types of anime, you got experimental stuff, original anime, anime based off mangas that were also good. now almost all of those have dissapeared and all you get is recycled garbage. so no sir I'm not full of shit.
You are 100% correct OP. Anime is garbage and is not worth your time so you may as well drop the entire hobby altogether. I suggest picking up another hobby like videogames and post on the videogames board of 4chan instead of here.
> so no sir
Fuck off back to reddit, please.
And we have original shows, adaptations and experimental shit this season. And you'd know about that if you just watched some of the shows airing instead of whining.
How can anyone be a hipster in anything related to anime, it's like the most uncool interest there is. Doesn't being a hipster imply that you only like things before they were considered mainstream and cool? Anime is never cool.
The point is that you wouldn't use it if you knew what you were saying. It's like someone discussing cacti at a nursery and saying "cactuses".
Even if it is a right way to say it going by English grammar, nobody on /a/ says it that way, showing you're probably just some /v/ kiddy who wandered in here thinking he could get a pat on the back for displaying some pretentious opinion akin to an upvote on reddit.
>having an interest in something because it makes you cool
Okay, you get one.
That one is legit though, i've heard shit taste norms talking about AoT twice in the past few days. Everyone has seen that show, shit is everywhere.
Still hate the whole hipster thing, it seems mostly as just a defense mechanism for people who feel threatened by someone not liking something popular they like or feeling inferior for not having heard of anything the "hipster" likes.
I'm pretty sure "animes" is the hip /a/ way of saying it, also acceptable are "animu" and "chinese cartoons", because as we all know, we need to be tongue on cheek about our love of anime, because it's not like we're weeaboos or anything ha ha ha
honestly, the fact that you pick it out shows that you're new to /a/, irony is thick on the ground here.
OP don't let the now full of newfags, plebs, tumblrfags, MAL fags, tumblrfags that think seasons like the current one actually have one or more than one good show tell you that you're wrong. I understand what you mean and can tell that you're of superior objective taste.
Okay, I'm interested. Where are you from anon? I need a good laugh.
And yes, a pureblood /a/non would know more about anime than a /v/ browser. Why the fuck would you even assume otherwise unless you had a confirmation bias thick enough to coat the entire world?
Please nerds, Eva is my favorite series of all time. Even though rebuild is different and just plain wrong so far in a lot of areas I refuse to judge it too harshly until it's completed.
the truth. Nobody saying "animes" is saying it because they honestly think that's the pluralization of it, every single time it's typed, it's because someone is trying to make a funny/fit in and not actually say the word properly.
trust me. I have a phd in burmese pictographs.
Let them be, let the subhumans wallow in their ignorance. In all seriousness though, you can't change the opinion of plebs because they're retards. Just accept that anime has gone to shit like me and watch whatever you can enjoy until Despera or Aria saves anime like Ping Pong did. Also Mononoke was fucking great.
nigger even /tv/ has better taste in anime than /a/. fuck off with your stupid arguments, there are people who haven't been to /a/ in his life and have better taste and know more about anime than you. Enough to know the current state of anime is a disgrace. And I can't even blame underage people anymore because I've seen fat 30 year old retards unboxing idolmaster blurays on youtube and it hurts my eyes. Where I'm from is irrelevant.
>nigger even /tv/ has better taste in anime than /a/
I actually go to /tv/ exclusively to laugh at those threads. Better comedy than your Baneposting, that's for sure.
>Where I'm from is irrelevant.
You'd think that, wouldn't you?
Just curious, how much anime have you seen?
even filler animes used to have a shot at being good back in the day, I rewatched Ayashi no Ceres last month and shit was actually well crafted. Heck, bible black has a better plot than all the shit these idiots watch.
>there are people who haven't been to /a/ in his life and have better taste and know more about anime than you. Enough to know the current state of anime is a disgrace
Have you even watched any of the shows that recently aired?
Is this how you refer to episodic shows?
You want us to take your opinion seriously?
I have been watching anime since all my life, first tv, then buying dvds and finally taking the usual step towards subbed anime, from 1997 to 2015. I've seen all kind of animeS and I've been on 4chan since 2009, and let me tell you. 4chan has nothing to do with knowing about anime.
it was based on a popular manga so...
I never thought I'd see the day where sport anime where the highlight of a season, that should be enough to tell you about the state of current anime.
they make good music nowadays and there are many artists with genuine styles.
mainly because these two industries are different from anime and can't be compared.
videogames though... last videogame I liked was prince of persia warrior within
what would make an anime forum good? I think there are some good irc channels about anime, mostly scantrad groups channels and xdcc fags like thora, but people don't talk on irc anymore, they just log in for the sake of login in
Digital inking destroyed the art of animation. There will probably never be another visually appealing mainstream anime, ever again.
this is what modern anime lovers look like nowadays
n wonder the quality of anime fans has decreased over the years too. it goes to the point where is ok to be ashamed of saying you like anime because people with good taste are going to think you like moe and loli shit and that you're braindead
>the quality of anime fans has decreased
my sides are gone. I can't even express it. I just wish I had a youtube link of some of the first conventions. I'm laughing just thinking about them.
I'm reminded of that wannabe voice actor fag who is banned from multiple conventions for being a stalker-tier weirdo
mainly because they were background noise fo what was really going on, heck remember zeto no hanayome, umisho and nagasarete? those anime were funny as hell. they can't make those nowadays
Anime is pretty shit, but at the same time stuff like ping pong is recent. I am going to subscribe to the belief that the majority of anime has and always will be shit will tiny gems snuck into it occasionally.
the problem that the quantity is really low. it really makes you consider whether animes like ping pong would be labeled as good in an industry where every anime project would try to be something interesting and well thought and not generic fastfood-like anime.
Fuck you, anime is better than ever!
Watch Kantai Collection for a change and you'll see that even the moeshit has improved to levels that only masterpieces like Cowboy Bebop, FLCL and GitS:SAC could previously reach.
stop wasting time with good anime and using the 5th episode rule, go after stablished good anime from 1980-2009. that's what I did and I haven't looked back ever since (or forward in this case)
there's always going to be more stupid people than smart ones with good taste, that's the root of the problem. anime is made for the masses, and the masses are retarded in majority. it is a patter that repeats itself in all arts
anime are made for people who like anime, and this is a large group, which implies there's a lot of people demanding anime and like I said, the majority is always going to be dumber than a few smart ones. meaning industries where sales matters will produce an incredible variety of shit that can be tolerated by the idiots.
I don't understand why people say this? You'd think that with the massive amount of anime we get today there'd at least be 3-4 good to great per anime year with a rare masterpiece every once in a while. Instead we get the same amount, arguably lesser amount which I think is right, but much more trash.
I thought KLK fans were the ones with memetaste (whatever this means), half of them are tumblr landwhales and redditors after all
KLK was disappointing and the animation was mostly average at best with a few scenes of quality sprinkled in, easily Imaishi's shittiest work. The plot was a mess and for a show essentially about fighting it had maybe two decent fight scenes, the rest was "DONT LOSE YOUR WAYYYY" and recycled animation.
It's one of the worst examples you could use for modern animation still being visually appealing.
what is reading
this is the number 1207 in MAL's top. and Clannad is number 6 ahahaha just kill me already
This can all be avoided by just not watching airing shit.
Let the MAL power-users sort through 40 shows a season. Just wait until a year or two after something finishes, if people still remember it, it's probably worth watching.
Only watching DVD/BD rips of completed shows yields a visually quality increase as well, there is literally no reason to watch airing shit unless you are a masochist.
