Sorry thats impossible. That's like saying gaming is not exciting anymore

wishingW3L3295d ago (Edited 3295d ago )

gaming has progressed while anime has become substantially worse and one sided. It just caters to one demographic and one alone.

If you're not a fan of perverted anime with lolis and moe then you're out of luck.

What anime are you watching? Sure there are tons of shows out there that pander to people who like moe and ecchi shows, but aren't there just as many FPS games? Medal of Battleduty? Every season there are a number of serious and thoughtful anime with at least four or five this season alone. Sometimes you have to look around and ask the question if it is just you? In this case it is.

Couldn't have put that better myself.

i'm not a fan of those , and yet i'm more than fine , you guys are just being the stereotypical "everything was better in the past" jaded grampas we see in every field of entertainement .

I come from an era where actually most anime series were kiddie crap , and when moe was flooding the marked only without the name and label . People only thought otherwise because mostly the hits , and the edgy and gory stuff were the ones being imported and were privy to some secret wealth of awesome anime .

Anime has its times with a big hitters, it started with Akira, then it was Dragon Ball, then Full Metal Alchemist [I think] and so on, I stopped caring years ago when fanatics were claiming Naruto = the Second Coming.

Some big anime will appear at some point and the cycle will go on...

I don't think anyone can deny that there are...certain tropes and demographics that definitely get hit up WAY too often, but I actually just got through writing a similar comment about video games: you can't marginalize an entire medium by it's tropes.

Sure, it's a little disheartening to see SO FRIGGIN MANY moe and ecchi series' being carelessly churned out for the sake of exploiting, um...that demographic, but as the folks above me have stated, there are still some great, thought-provoking or otherwise uniquely creative animes being produced these days as well.

The fact of the matter is entertainment will ALWAYS be flooded with artistically bankrupt crap designed to coax some easy money out of people, but you can't let that stop you from seeking out the good stuff.

I've been watching anime for many years, but the last few (recent) have been more sub par/generic/cash grabs than interesting. The last breath of fresh air I've seen is probably Lupin the III: Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna. One anime I'm currently watching, but frustrating as hell is Eureka Seven AO which is apparently a cash grab pandering to fans of the original. Just before this a sequel for Last Exile.... that was the same thing...

Sounds like he's just stuck in the past.

Simon_Brezhnev3296d ago

I still love anime. I was born after some of my favorite shows. I guess he is not trying a lot of different anime.

AztecFalcon3296d ago

I do miss the old shows and I may not have found one to make me really get back into anime but I keep hoping.

Dark113296d ago

I agree , most of the anime now is about moe girls and
1000000 school girls with one guy

i miss the old days when i used to watch MATURE anime like (claymore,black lagoon, brust angel etc..)

now we only stuck with shit like Dakara Boku wa and Yuru Yuri etc..

absolutely pathetic.


if the audience doesn't get a panty shot or bath scene then the anime will not sell and get cancelled.

GillHarrison3295d ago

This is almost a sad truth.

Simon_Brezhnev3295d ago

Yeah you are right i have to admit that if there is no nudity it wont sell good. Hell they even censor a lot of of anime just to use it as a sale tactic.

WitWolfy3295d ago (Edited 3295d ago )

God yor right on the money, I hate when I watch an anime with 1 guy who has less sex appeal then a wet fish has the entire female school base after his pathetic ass. And when they flash a bit of boobage his nose bleeds out of control, it makes me just wanna blow my freaking brains out...

What makes these animes so freaking lame is that when you see this crappy character, you think... It that was me ill screw their brains out... And i think thats what the creators wanted you to think all along, seeing that the leading male character is always some kind of stereo type loner or geek from the womb of his mothers basement with the craziest hairstyles EVER!

Simon_Brezhnev3295d ago

I guess you dont watch anime at all anymore because we still got mature anime. It's just its like maybe 1 or 2 person season. You talk about Dakara Boku but look at Burst Angel. LOL

This season we got like 4 mature animes. Btooom, Zetsu no Tempest, Jormugand,and Jojo's adventure.
