Old geezers that have trouble adjusting to the new times, and only rehash their works. LOL WATCH/BUY MY SHIT FOLKS, IT'S BETTER THAN EVERYTHING ELSE

In what way are Ponyo and Porco Rosso or Evangelion and Wings of Honneamise are similar? And could you elaborate on these new standards that you're talking about that you think they should adjust to?

As for how much money Miyazaki and Anno make off their works, I believe the fact that they manage to remain at the top of the chart for weeks and end up being the best selling DVDs/Blu-rays of their years more than speaks for itself.

Yeah, I've seen some screenshots in which a black man is referred to as "it", and a woman saying she's only good for making sandwiches. Deep stuff, eh?

LOL! You only saw a couple of screenshots and figured out what's the writing in a 110 episodes series is all about?

In winter we also got Hipira-kun, Cobra: Rokunin no Yuushi, and Katanagatari. SoRaNoWoTo and Baka to Test might be moe/ecchi, but they're generally well received and different. In spring, Heroman, Kaichou wa Maid-sama!, Ookiku Furikabutte, Angel Beats, Giant Killing, Hakuouki, Arakawa under the Bridge, Senkou no Night Raid, and Rainbow aired too. Fall 2009 had Armed Librarians, Darker Than Black 2, Sasameki Koto, Natsu no Arashi, and fucking Kimi ni Todoke.

They didn't have that wow factor about them like Durarara and Yojouhan that would have made me invest my time on them, personally, though good for those that enjoyed them. And Kimi ni Todoke wasn't all that great BTW, but just like you said, it's entirely subjective :)

Besides, what is "revolutionary"? Do you think when Serial Experiments Lain started airing, people thought "wow, this is da shit!"? I doubt it, and even the producer of the show said that it was "an enormous risk." An anime needs to age to a certain point before it's considered a classic and revolutionary for its time.

Ah, I remember Lain. Back when it was released the reviewers described it as "unlike anything that you've ever seen before" (which is synonymous to revolutionary), and was one of the most critically acclaimed series of 1998.

An anime needs to survive the test of time before it can be considered a classic, but you can tell whether an anime is revolutionary or not by comparing it to all that came before it and see how original and great it is.

No, there isn't. In the fall 2010 season for example, there's barely any anime that can truly be called slice-of-life.

I'm not going to comment on Fall 2010, since I've been more into reading manga and checking out old anime these days, though people with similar tastes to mine recommended Kuragurehime (or however you spell it) to me.

As for previous years, there had been an influx in moe/harem/ecchi/fan-service anime that all overshadowed other works with substance in terms of popularity and sales. Even respected producers like Miyazaki, Anno and others made statements and expressed their gripe regarding that.

More like Legend of the Gaylactic Homos, lol. This is entirely subjective.

You don't know what you're missing :p

Beneath the mostly all-male cast and the pairing possibilities that will make a yaoi fangirl drool, there's one of the most epic stories to be told in an anime.

Yeah, they sell better, and their profit makes it possible for more mature and intelligent anime to be made. And there's a good balance between the two every season.

It's a good idea that they majority of anime studios don't seem to follow. In Winter/Spring 2010 we only got Durarara, Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei and House of the Five Leaves, in Fall 2009 there wasn't anything revolutionary, though we did get Kuuchuu Buranko and Nodame Cantabile Finale.

I have no problem with those who are into these type of anime: different strokes for different folks, and I might be in for a surprise and this anime will end up impressing me thanks to Ishiguro's involvement in it. But what disheartens is that it looks like many anime producers have gotten drunk on the money that they could make from them, thus we see a lot of them every season.

I will follow it just because it's an original production, and they are worth following, even if they turn out to be bad in the end.

Me, too~

Definitely gonna gibe this a chance, even if it looks like it will not be from ma favorite genre ^^

Dec 18, 2010 7:58 AM by Alcoholicide

I wonder what is this even about but the angel women are cuuuuuute. As long as isn't an anime version of Touched by an Angel, it should be good.

Dec 18, 2010 7:46 AM by Hoppy

Once again, looks promising.

Dec 18, 2010 6:43 AM by wakka9ca

Art looks decent. Well, I'll check it out since its an original anime.

Dec 18, 2010 5:06 AM by jjihhye

The title is quite stupid imo, but oh well...Ishiguro is good, Artland is good, being original anime isn't necessarily good since most of the original anime we've seen in the last couple of years were crap, but maybe they'll finally manage to create a decent original anime for a change.

Dec 18, 2010 4:45 AM by seishi-sama

i think im gonna have to watch this one lol

Dec 18, 2010 4:02 AM by Denmark-Chan

Yaay!! Another original anime~
The voices are cute, good to know the rookies of the industry~

Dec 18, 2010 3:50 AM by sayami

Well, since it's an original anime, I'll check it out for sure.

Dec 18, 2010 12:58 AM by CloudConnected

Who knows, maybe it'll be something like 'Legend of the Angelic Heroes'- don't judge 'em by their looks, they'll be at the front of the lines leading their side to victory; angels don't screw around man. Lol, joking aside, the director has impressed me before, and though the characters don't look anything special, I've quite liked Haibane Renmei and Angel Beats which this first brought to mind, so I'll be checking this series out.

Hmm, judging by the art, this looks like it's going to be a moe slice-of-life anime, which isn't my cup of tea.

All I can say is after working on epic and iconic anime, like Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Macross and Yamato, I'm quite disappointed to see Ishiguro switching to this kind of genre.
Here's an idea. How about you wait until it actually comes out rather than judging it by its cover.

It could be the next Mushishi behind the sugar coating for all you know, or at least an Aria-type slice-of-life about discovering how wonderful the world is as opposed to the mindless tea and cakes of K-ON!

I will follow it just because it's an original production, and they are worth following, even if they turn out to be bad in the end.

Yeah, how fucking dares he to try something different?

LOL, isn't there already more than enough average moe slice-of-life anime in every season? not to say that this one will turn out bad.

It's been a long time since we've seen something of the quality of Legend of the Galactic Heroes. And since it seems that anime producers nowadays are into moe/fanservice since they sell better and Ishiguro is too good for this stuff, that's why I'm expressing my disappointment.
