Several mainstream Animes.

Oh and Clannad. (+ After Story)

Because Clannad is totally not mainstream.

In most people's heads, mainstream = 100+ episodes..
You should know that by now, try follow up on other people's stupid logic instead of pointlessly correcting them for self-amusement. ;)

As for me, I haven't been watching anime but for like one and a half year about now. Don't have anything vintage, but I guess AB is going to be staying in the back of my head for a while..

This is the most entertaining MAL thread in a long time.
Please continue to amuse me. :>


Agreed! It like a tennis match of insults going back and forth lol! Granted I think a few people are taking it way too seriously attacking other peoples post and opinions but, its still entertaining.

--No, not really. Mainstream = stuff people are watching and aware of. Episode count has nothing to do with it. A "mainstream" title can become a classic but currently popular titles don't always become "classics."

lol not Code Geass? That show has spawned 30 gazillion spinoffs and adaptations already. You need a tall glass of objectivity instead of haterade, Bro.
Wat? There's a couple of manga and then what? I really don't see anything, lol. Or are you just trolling? Hell, there's hardly any merchandise of it at all either.


I was exaggerating for emphasis. So far I am aware of 4 spinoff manga, 2 OVAs, a movie, a play, and a musical all planned because of Code Geass. If Sunrise keeps putting out CG products then CG won't be easily forgotten.

I agree with this statement but I never thought of Clannad as a mainstream Anime because people where I live generally don't know what it is. (compared to stuff like Naruto, Bleach, One Piece etc.) Though people on here (an Anime forum) generally knows what a lot of Animes are so what Animes would you consider mainstream, and not mainstream? (just wondering by the way, not trying to start anything) lol

Well i think there is a difference between what's mainstream and what's mainstream on MAL, some things are really popular around here, yet the casual anime watcher who doesn't frequent sites like this may not have ever heard of them.

Yeah that's what I was referring to basically. Hardcore Anime fans would generally know what Animes like Clannad etc. are but overall, in my opinion, I wouldn't consider it "mainstream" compared to Animes like Pokemon, Dragonball Z, Yu-Gi-Oh, Naruto, Bleach, One Piece etc.

Still, pumping out lots of spinoffs for cashing in on a success doesn't necessarily equate to lasting impact. Just take those manga for example, I'll bet my kidney very few people have heard about them outside some of the more fervent fans, and from what I'm seeing they don't exactly leave much impact in their own right either.
Just take Votoms, there's loads of spinoffs of it, but it's still not a very well known series. Now Geass has an edge there by being pretty mainstream, but so long as it's spinoffs don't reach a similar renown, they won't amount to much.

Believe me, most people solely class the big three as mainstream, grouping the rest of the mainstream series in a different category simply to justify their 'mainstream sucks' opinion.
I'm not talking about the whole etymology of the concept, but how narrowly people tend to look at it..
And by pointlessly, I mean by posting a completely irrelevant off-topic post to correct a single guy's shallow logic. That single post then leading towards a massive debate on a thread that it has nothing to do with it.. Your average MAL argument.
Lastly, define 'classic'. Series don't have to be 'classic' to be considered mainstream..

Too many to list in mainstream, cult, and moe, and of course it will differ between Eastern and Western sensibilities.

I'm just gonna laugh at the people saying things like Eva or Bebop. Those have been around for 15-20 years already. They've already stood the test of time on one hemisphere or the other.

Stop changing the subject. The question is, Will CG be remembered in 10 years time? The spinoffs and crap keeps it from being forgotten and it already is closing in on the 10 year mark while current productions are still ongoing.

Just take those manga for example, I'll bet my kidney very few people have heard about them outside some of the more fervent fans, and from what I'm seeing they don't exactly leave much impact in their own right either.

If we are not talking about fans then who the hell are we talking about? It's the fervent fans that kept NGE's hype high all these years prior to the reboot movies sparking a new interest in the series from anime fans that don't like old graphics. It's funny that you weren't even aware of them before my post but now are so well informed that you know how much impact these series have or will have in the future. I bet you make a killing at the horse races.

Just take Votoms, there's loads of spinoffs of it, but it's still not a very well known series. Now Geass has an edge there by being pretty mainstream, but so long as it's spinoffs don't reach a similar renown, they won't amount to much.

The topic is talking about being remembed for 10 years, not 30.

It's called milking a franchise. Gundam isn't the only series that does it.

Even though It's only been a year since it was released, I say Madoka is one of those anime that has a chance that it will be remembered in 10 years time.

--Sigh. Classic IS something that stands the "test of time" because it set a new standard and/or captures some essential aspect of the human experience. Obviously I didn't state my comment clearly. It is my view that most "mainstream" anime is anything but classic. Most of it tends to be cheap, commercial, unoriginal, and panders to current fads. That is not to say that some "mainstream" shows don't become classics but most of them do not.

Also, when I think about it, I doubt if the "casual anime" viewer gives much thought as to what is classic. Half of them don't know the difference subtle difference between anime and cartoon.

Lisnoire is nice I guess, because I laughed at them. People are lazy (I am too), it's funny.

I mentioned it on page 3 btw :P

It's a shame how "mindless" people become on internet forums sometimes. They just click the topic, briefly read whatever was in the OP (often missing several things) and give their random opinions without even contributing to any discussion. I myself can be like this sometimes.. although I try not to be.

I do know, and have all along known what it means for a series to be 'mainstream', which is apparently what you've been trying exceptionally hard to teach me..
If you'd bother to try and comprehend my point all the way back to my first post, you just might happen to notice "In most people's heads". I'm talking about how opinionated the concept has become to the general anime community..
TL;DR, I'm talking about dogmatism.

Also, 'casual anime viewer'? I would really like to know your conception of that, doesn't seem you have to right idea..

Well i think there is a difference between what's mainstream and what's mainstream on MAL, some things are really popular around here, yet the casual anime watcher who doesn't frequent sites like this may not have ever heard of them.

Don't think that's the case really, in my eyes it's more like what's mainstream in the eyes of a newfag, and what's mainstream in the eyes of a veteran anime fan.
As an example, I use different forumboards on daily basis, one of them has an anime section called 'AA' where newfags and such with their obdurateness pop up from time to time. On the contrary, there are also those resident otakus and such who hold the community together, people who would never wander twice on MAL's forumboard.
There, and I could name more places, are people who despite MAL, but their ideas and impressions on anime is no different from ours..

I agree with most of the ones listed throughout, but what about:
Great Teacher Onizuka
Mars of Destruction
Yu Yu Hakusho (I feel this should get more mentions, but I'm biased)
Ouran High School Host Club (unless it's just my wishful thinking)
Steins;Gate?
-I know ^this one is only a year old, too, but it was very popular when it aired. I think it would've gotten more hype were it not for Mahou Shoujo Madoka*Magica, which pretty much stole the spotlight for '11. Over time when Madoka gets less popular (but still probably remembered 10 years), perhaps Steins;Gate will get more hype or be remembered, as well. If AnoHana has potential to be remembered in this sense, the same might be true for S;G. Just a thought...

That's not changing the subject. My point is, random spinoffs does not contribute to the series being remembered unless they themselves are memorable enough. Just look at NGE, all those random manga spinoffs never had a fraction of the impact the original series had, the franchise is remembered because of the main series and the following movie, not all the spinoffs, those are merely frosting on the cake if anything at all.
If we are not talking about fans then who the hell are we talking about? It's the fervent fans that kept NGE's hype high all these years prior to the reboot movies sparking a new interest in the series from anime fans that don't like old graphics.
Yea, but again, the spinoffs don't have any weight to them alone to be noticed outside of the fanbase, that's all I've been saying, no sense trying to twist the point around. But NGE itself has been noticed far and wide outside the fanbase, and certainly to a far bigger extent than CG has at this point.
So at least if we try to use NGE as a measure for lasting cultural impact, in that it got where it was today from only 26 episodes and a movie (I really can't see how the reboots add anything of value so far), CG hasn't yet done the same with it's two seasons, and I do doubt the further spinoffs will add very much to it, so far being unrelated to the original plot and all.

Now sure, NGE is far on top of the popularity pole, so that's not to say CG can't also leave an impact only because it pales compared to it. But the way I see it, it still falls between two chairs, as it's whole story is basically built by mashing up various ideas, all of which either are or will likely be remembered more for their role in other stories, such as Gundam and Death note.

They won't be remembered because they have 300+ episodes. :) There's a reason why they reached that number after all. If they were crappy they wouldn't even reach 25. Though, apparently it's cool trend nowadays to hate the popular stuff to feel "different".

Why people try to compare everything for Japan? Most memorable =/= how well it did in Japan... Each region is different...

Stuff that won't be forgotten?
One Piece - Anime would still be airing most likely.
Naruto
Bleach
Pokemon
FMA
Digimon
Death Note
Code Geass
Ghost in the shell
Hajime no Ippo
Captain Tsubasa
Mirai Shounen Conan (I can say it will never be forgotten in the Middle East region :) )
A LOT of anime will be memorable in 10 years...

I am not talking about success of the individual spin-offs. Getting spin-offs is one way to indicate that the franchise itself hasn't been forgotten by the fans.

Yea, but again, the spinoffs don't have any weight to them alone to be noticed outside of the fanbase,

Then the question would be are we talking about the fans forgetting a franchise or non-fans being aware about shows they've never watched in 10 years. The former seems to be a more feasible topic of this forum while the latter would fit into a forum that isn't centered around anime.

But NGE itself has been noticed far and wide outside the fanbase, and certainly to a far bigger extent than CG has at this point.

And does that mean in people inside the fandom will stop talking about it in 10 years because people outside of the fandom don't know about it? That defeats the point of fans congregating to discussion boards.

So at least if we try to use NGE as a measure for lasting cultural impact, in that it got where it was today from only 26 episodes and a movie (I really can't see how the reboots add anything of value so far), CG hasn't yet done the same with it's two seasons, and I do doubt the further spinoffs will add very much to it, so far being unrelated to the original plot and all.

NGE was my analogy and I wouldn't use that as a measuring stick for this conversation because that would assume fans only remember shows that had value and impact similar to NGE and mean ignoring other reasons a show could be remember for. People are still talking about Mars of Destruction almost 8 years after the fact. So NGE can't be a standard-bearer when the concept of not forgetting something is so open.

Now sure, NGE is far on top of the popularity pole, so that's not to say CG can't also leave an impact only because it pales compared to it.

Why don't you start up a topic that discusses impact if you want to talk about it so much. But do keep in mind that the number of separate projects is one way to measure impact just as is whether non-anime fans you happen to know are aware of any particular show.


But the way I see it, it still falls between two chairs, as it's whole story is basically built by mashing up various ideas, all of which either are or will likely be remembered more for their role in other stories, such as Gundam and Death note.

The I see it is CG is so tightly bound to Death Note because of similar airing dates and main characters that discussion of one inevitably brings in comparisons of the other in anime forums.

All that aside, I'd bet you'd still be talking about CG until the day you die. Thus, you'd be one of the prime reasons why CG can't be forgotten around here.

Only looked at the first page, but...

No Sailor Moon, DBZ, or Pokemon? WHAT IS THIS MADNESS?! Those were my intro to anime when I was a wee 11 year old.

NGE will also never be forgotten, for sure. I'm hoping Cowboy Bebop will be the same way.

Death Note, Code Geass, One Piece, Nartuo, Bleach, Full metal Alchemist, Gintama, Rurouni Kenshin, Dragon Ball Z, Gundam etc.. most mainstream animes will most likely still be remembered 10 years from now, and probably most of Ghibli's stuff.

since I'm not into mainstream or endless animes, mine would be NGE? perhaps


how is this NOT mainstream? :facepalm:

I know that post was at the start of the thread, but people surprise me with what they think of as "underground", "alternative" , "not mainstream" etc.
I think NGE is about as mainstream-saturated as it can get, easily more known in some age groups than Ghibli films.

I'll never understand what's so great about Evangelion.


Yay? Sorry for your loss? I am sure we can dig up someone that doesn't understand how great Wilt Chamberlain is either but that says more about that person's critical thinking ability than Chamberlain's accomplishments.


so if someone thinks NGE is highly over-rated this equates ontologically to that person having no critical thinking?
and who cares about Wilt Chamberlain anyway? I certainly don't. what the hell does he have to do with anime or anything I care about, and most especially what does he have to do with critical thinking? Hooray for him if he is "great" at something I absolutely loathe (all-star sports, Sports stars and fandom, et., ad nauseum). I understand and recognize he is good at what he is good at, but I don't understand how he is "great," because I have no interest in what he performs well at, so I don't think he is "great." I also think he is over-paid, as are all pro athletes (and "A-list" actors and other famous douche-bags) :P
Seriously, people can not like NGE and still exhibit critical thinking, or possibly, not just in spite of not liking it, but possibly because of not liking it. Trying to randomly relate a discussion like this this to sports fanaticism also just makes no sense to me, as I hate sports "hero" worship and everything that goes with it.
Really, not trying to flame, but don't mistake your favorite series, movie (or sports star/ team/ other sports-related puke) as a statement of undeniable truth, wisdom and greatness.

What I think will be still remembered in 10 years?
*Macross F, because it is Macross and it isn't Macross II (which people still remember)
*Baccano!
*Mushi-Shi
*Planetes
*Most any Ghibli
*lots of really mainstream stuff

Rurouni Kenshin has always had a place in my heart. It was pretty awesome at the time and I could never forget about it.
The one thing that I'd love to see is a lesbian yandere.
