You don't, you fix anime production as a whole and some good mecha shows will be born naturally from that result since some people still like it, even if it's a smaller number. Anime needs to be saved though, because it's in a terrible place at the moment and has been for quite a while. I don't mean in a "...will save anime" way either, since one show isn't going to do it regardless of how good it is. I mean, saving the process of anime creation from the ground up. Paying the staff better so that more people with wider interests will take it up as a career, rather than just the basement dwelling otaku who are doing it these days because the pay is so shit you have to love it more than is healthy to deal with the awful wages. Investing money in to the industry so that people are willing to take chances on risky ideas. That kind of thing.
It's probably not going to be fixed until Japan starts to do something about it's rather weird economic policies full stop though, because it's all just a symptom of that at the end of the day I would imagine.
She'd end up riding Gojira in to battle against Destroyah or something after befriending the shit out of him and you know it. And then Gojira would end up befriending Destroyah after Nanoha befriends whoever was allied with Destroyah and they'd all have a tea-party at the end with not-so-subtle homoerotic undertones, Destroyah and Gojirah included.
>>11770440 He would. Which is doubly stupid, because if something is popular and accepted, it's not edgy. That style works just as well now as it did then, so it's not currently edgy, nor was it at creation.
Unless we're going to redefine "edgy" means "anything with a lot of blood".
>>11770471 People wildly misapply edgy. Edgy means overuse or gratuitous use of conventionally dark and/or mature elements in a fashion that misuses it to the point of being ridiculous and wildly immature.
Mostly people just use it for "thing with any dark elements at all that i don't like".
>>11770384 >Yu Yamamoto stated that he wished to bring back "original anime", as in having no manga (or video game) to base it off of, as he believes this practice of adapting from a manga is detrimental to new screenwriters.
>>11770359 Original anime is pretty much over now. If it's not otaku/fujo bait or a new installment of some long running series or backed by a major player wanting something made for them, then it ain't happening.
The other anime that is based off of popular works from other forms of media is going to continue being made period. It's a safe bet and always pays good dividends.
The only way decent original anime is going to survive another generation is if promising young talent takes to the net and puts out free advertisement backed webisodes/mobile only anime and create a ground swell of support with good series.
If you mean popular with kids, they should make some kind of franchise that works with smartphones. Smartphone apps and collectible cards are the two most popular forms of entertainment among Japanese children.
>>11770366 Magical girls aren't that popular among little girls anymore, haven't been in ages. There's Pretty Cure franchise but that's pretty much about it, also Aikatsu is doing better these days. Idols are the #1 thing among little girls. Also after Frozen's success they have got more interested in princesses.
Youkai Watch is the most popular franchise now and it attracts both boys and girls.
2.Needs older teens and adults who're "cool" as the helpers that look cool and will help/protect/be obstacles and who they'll eventually surpass
3.Needs to not be super serial like...make it an alternate dimension/virtual kind of thing
4.Needs to be a small microcosm of a society with children
5.I'm thinking...kids find magic/techno/virtual/smartphone app that lets them change into robots and are sort of like power masters/headmasters ala transformers for collectible transforming robotic animal partner.
6.They can get new transforming animal partners, and each one can change into different things. Some are giant fighting robots others are motorcycles others are jets and there are some combiners in the batch.
7.Play up the unique partner for unique person aspect.
8.Dump the warhawk stuff from other mechs. The children don't get it, and will have no frame of reference.
I don't know, that's just something I came up with.
>>11771001 Yeah, there's honoring tradition and what came before then there's just slavishly following what was done and creating a nigh impenetrable field of stuff that no one new understands and anyone even slightly experienced with the genre will be completely underwhelmed by.
>>11770859 Idolshit is cyclical though. There are periods of mainstream popularity and periods of wota domination. Idolshit has been going strong since early 2010s thanks to the AKB bitches going mainstream but son it'll be back to the wota ghetto.
>>11770984 The ratings and toy sales have been declining for years. The current model is fucked up anyway, in the past there was diferent magical girls but now Toei bet for one magical girl franchise only for having a monopoly on toy sales (Sasuga Bandai). That put too many restrictions. Too bad modern shoujo mangakas are too busy writing about their rape fantasies so they don't write magical girls anymore. Really, the genre lost too much by being planned by a committee full of old men
>>11770859 >Idols are the #1 thing among little girls. This disgusts me. Parents allow their little girls to look up to this shit? Idols are glorified whores taking the easy way into the music industry, often not even remaining in it after "graduation" and becoming some retarded TV talent with dumb commentary.
>>11771311 The thing with forbidden love is the audience roots for the couple for defeating the obstacles with the power of their love while idolfags are supposed to root for their idol to remain as a virgin. It works pretty well for virgin nerds unable to deal with a girl with more sexual experience than them but little girls might have some problems with that
>>11771384 It's about little girls, not the sad idol worshipping otaku. And little girls like that kind of stuff, however, from your statement. There is real potential in creating a magical girl anime that's loosely based on idol worship and showing the obsessed otaku as the antagonist/mastermind behind it.
>>11771400 >There is real potential in creating a magical girl anime that's loosely based on idol worship and showing the obsessed otaku as the antagonist/mastermind behind it. That twintail anime has some shades of that. The heroins become famous overnight, and since the whole premise circles around fetishes, the bad guys are huge pervert otakus. It's probably nothing like what you were thinking though, but I saw some similarities.
>>11771410 The "no love allowed" thing is because blue dude feels guilty since as a god he wasn't able to answer to a Precure's feelings, and that made her go evil. The girls actually oppose that rule.
The problem is they don't make kids cartoons anymore. It's all about the toys now, the show is just a side-product. While it's true that mecha shows have always been about selling toys, back then some ethic and self-respect still exist. The medium allowed writers and directors to take advantage of nobody giving a shit about these cartoons for making what they really wanted between the toys promotion.
>>11771425 I don't know about that. Look at J-Decker for example, it's pretty much just a monster of the week show and then you get the gattai sequence with stock animation. The "plot" is just "boy meets robot, stuff happens".
>>11770627 Is it going to have the original people - or other sufficiently good people - back to do the music? Because jesus fuck, a J9 show without some absolutely amazing OP and a bunch of other good music would be treason.
>>11768132 What the hell is the "new fashion" for japanese boys these days anyway?
Is it Nike, kid? You seem to think that's in fashion. Do we need to make a mecha show all about shoes? Does the premise have to be a war that starts simply because someone's robot stepped on someone else's Mecha Air Jordans?
>>11771065 I kind of want to watch some idol anime like Aikatsu and Love Live but I hate real life idolshit for pretty much those reasons so it stops me from doing so. The concept feels less obnoxiously fake if it's anime but real life idolshit still bugs me too much.
