Dead end? Seems like they are doing better than ever... or at least it seems like they are still going strong.

I think he's talking about creativity in the industry, rather than the simple presence of the medium.

Well I get that, but even then, it seems to me at least that they are doing fine.

Strange, Anime has been getting more popular as of late.

I have to agree, I think anime hit a high mark in the 90's to the beginning of the millennium and has just fallen creatively since then. There's good stuff out there, but it seems few and far in between to me.

I feel like anime has just been getting better. The 90s has its gems but only a few of them hold up in the new age.

THAT is a true statement. Something must've happened in his recent career to make him bitter or he's just become really jealous all of the sudden. Why else would he come out and say something like this?

You are exactly right. I feel like he has no real authority on the subject, considering he hasn't made an anime series in god knows how long and is simply remaking the same shit as before.
