Look man, I am not gonna say back in my days anime were the best blah blah as I know most of it comes to your own preferences. However, it feels to me that the anime industry it's taking a nosedive possibly into one of the worst eras of its time.

How could a sane person support the current state of anime being released into mainstream. Whatever happened to the Golden formulas created in the past so they could be used now? Why must the anime industry keep generating these 3, 7,10 minutes anime that absolutely nobody gives a fuck about?

Please stop this madness please japan wake the fuck up, you proved japan is full of loli cons or idol cons enough already go back to making good quality content, or at least recycle classics with today's animation I am begging you.

I am tired of yaoi and Yuri and loli and idols being thrown in my face thanks

I've been watching Anime since 1992, and I prefer Anime from the 80s and 90s over what we have today, but that being said, I'm no longer going to waste my breath trying to change the times. I hate loli/moe/CGDCT as much as the next old school fan, but there's no use in talking to these people or attempting to change them. Just ignore them instead.

I just ignore most newer Anime, and focus on the older stuff that I know I'll enjoy. Another thing though, I actually like Shounen-ai and male idol shows, so at least there's a tiny bit of newer Anime that I can appreciate.

I don't think there is a single person that enjoyes every single anime being released but given that the number of shows coming out increases constantly there is usually something decent to watch every single season so I don't really see the problem.

Just because you don't personally like the anime being produced does not mean that they are bad. Just watch older anime if that's what you like.

Another "back in the old days" thread. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Just becasue the 80's and 90's had Cowboy Bebop, Trigun and a couple of decent studio ghibli films doesn't mean that back then was the golden age of anime and every single season we were getting 10/10 legendary masterpieces. There were a lot of shit shows back then, but people don't want to admit it. But what can you do when they are blinded by nostalgia.

More shitty shows ≠ less good shows

I think you need to understand this…
Yeah, there are more shitty shows in numbers or proportion in current era, considering many anime are intentionally created in lowest budget and effort possible just so the company can sell the license to CR or other services to increase the number of anime in their website and this wasn’t the case for older era. (example: two car, dynamic chord…ect)
However, that does not mean we’re getting less and less good shows. Number of good anime every year hasn’t changed much. I mean there is lower probability to get good show in this era if you use random number generator to choose one anime to watch, but if you actually use your brain to choose a show, then I don’t see how you can end up watching those shit shows. How can anyone with right mind choose Two Car for unironic enjoyment?

Become good at choosing shows. This is all I can say.

I haven't seen nearly enough anime to definitively comment, but I do agree that anime of the last 5 or so years doesn't seem as good as some of the older stuff. Seems the industry is going for quantity over quality. Still though, there are some anime coming up this summer that look interesting, and will hopefully be good

I can agree with you on the fact that on most SEASONS there are maybe one or two excepts, that doesn't change the fact that most recently it's been crap.

Yes, it's easy don't watch them. The era of good anime is gone and I find myself reading manga than watching anime because of this reason.

You know what I just realized, it's easier for the younger generation to say that the quality of anime nowadays is not bad, and that is most likely because they never seen "good anime" made in the previous years. It's quite sad that younger viewers will not go back and watch some of these masterpieces because they don't approve of the animation or style of the show. If I only watched shit anime all of myself then of course I wouldn't be able to differentiate between quality (I know it comes down to self preferences but it's the truth)

Since when was anime required to cater to the specific taste of yours?

If you don’t like it, ignore it.

I definitely have feeling of nostalgia toward Rose of Versailles even if I was born in 90s and watched the show two month ago, right?

If you don't like this era,then watch a old fucking anime,end of discussion.

You're way over estimating the revenue anime get from international licensing by at least an order of magnitude. Even if a show gets 50k views per episode (which the shows you mentioned absolutely will not), that's only a couple thousand dollars per episode. Not NEARLY enough to pay for even a super low budget anime.

I liked 00s era the most (especially the atmosphere and character design) but it's not like I don't have anything to watch nowadays.

Sry to break it to you,but I'm one of those younger viewers and I can say with certainty that there isn't a difference in quality between old and modern anime.

You can't complain about people not watching classics when you don't have a single anime by Dezaki, Tomino, or Takahata on your list.

Hmm… I was guessing that those shows are making money by foreign licensing, but I guess it’s not true.

TV series like Two Car can’t get much production cost covered by TV broadcasters and anime studio begs TV broadcasters to let them air the show. Also, the advertisement revenue is super low because those anime are usually aired in time slot that nobody gives a shit. Not to mention Blu-ray sales would be close to zero because of quality.

So, I thought it wouldn’t make any sense to make the show if they can’t get decent money from foreign licensing.
Now, I’m questioning more about those lowest possible budget shows…

I mean OP has to be a troll/baiter pretty much because they haven't even seen any shows from recent years. They tried a whole 1 anime from 2018 and that was about the most mainstream and controversial one they could have picked (Darling in the Franxx) and then they wonder where the good shows are. The only stuff they even watched from 2016 and 2017 were hentai. They clearly know nothing about contemporary anime, have zero experience with them and therefore no idea what they are talking about. Probably just braindeadly parroting some meme they read around the internet.

Either this is serious mental retardation if they think their nonexistent experience makes them able to form a judgment on the things they have no experience with, or much more likely, a bait thread from someone who hasn't been into anime for a while.

You can have feelings of nostalgia towards it. It doesn't matter when you were born or when you started watching anime. I'm mostly using the "nostalgia" argument from people like OP who praise stuff from the pass and say that every single show from the 2000's or 2010's is shit, yet not even admitting that even back then there were bad shows and not everything was amazing. I can see why it would be a weak argument though.

Yeah right, the only thing important enough to add in recent years were those hentai you watched but not the classics you allegedly love so much.

You're talking out of your ass and anybody who actually has experience with old and new anime can tell. You have no idea what you are talking about.

You have an interesting set of problems. You're force feeding yourself garbage, overrating the old stuff, and assuming that everyone should share your same tastes. All at the same time. Neat.

It feels almost stupid to say this, because it's so blatantly obvious-- but here you go:
log in once every few weeks and check the "seasonal anime" and pick 1 or 2 that might be good in your preferred genre. If you're having loli and yuri "thrown in your face," clearly that's what you are choosing to watch and you should just love yourself enough to admit who you are.

I get what you mean but really? Are you sure you want anime to follow a "golden formula"? That sounds like a great way to limit creativity. But if you want great shounen (cause I think its safe to assume that's what you're going on about) then look to manga. For example, The Promised Neverland only started a year ago and yet has a captivating and well-developed story.

Beats me the number of producers listed on two car makes me wonder if there was bigger plans for the show and it ended up getting bogged down in the production committee or something. It had some big name voice actors too, maybe they blew the budget there and didn't have enough to give it decent animation?
