Whatever happened to visual novel adaptations? Back in the 2000s they were all the rage, particularly the romance ones. Now, they're barely done anymore, and the last new non-short adaptation of a romance visual novel was this, way back in Winter 2016. Why did they die out, when they used to be so popular?
People are finally realizing that packing god knows how many hours of writing into 12/24 episodes is fucking awful. And that adapting routes for girls without any bias whatsoever in a non-omnibus format is more trouble than it's worth.
So what is your opinion on the most influential or important anime of the 2010's so far?
By important I don't necessarily mean popular or good, I mean stuff on the level of Neon Genesis Evangelion in the 1990's, or The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya for the 2000's.
I personally think Madoka Magica is a good choice, along with maybe Kimi no Na wa.
If we can fudge the 2010's to include anime that ended in 2010 but started in 2009, I think maybe Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood would count too since it sparked the trend of re-making lackluster manga adaptations.
>I personally think Madoka Magica is a good choice, along with maybe Kimi no Na wa.
No to the first because it really hasn't influenced much, and no to something that came out a year ago
Why do so many people like crab?

How do you feel about Phantom World now?
/ck/ here! I have made you some food!
how do we stop anime from becoming mainstream? capitalization of it in the west is progressing, especially West coast US and Canada.
>anime distributors emerging in the west, though shitty (but there are few if any better alternatives)
>exposure of anime increasing, normalizing it and growing it (think the twitch sponsored anime viewing earlier this summer, getting the younger generations hooked on their services)
>toonami returned (even though its just a pathetic ditch effort to save cable)
>assaults on trackers (both public and private) is more frequent
>spread of anime films in local theaters
>less taboo surrounding its existence
at the rate it's going the west will capitalize anime and in a worse case scenario, start producing it themselves eventually. there is no doubt in my mind it will be ruined by dubs, maybe even wiping out the need for subs altogether, and even worse, having more adaptations like the netflix death note. the niche audience will grow and become ruined, as is with anything that becomes bloated and popular. this will likely mean the death of much loved genres such as CGDCT, mahou shoujo, and basically any SoL including lolis. people should be more aware of this and take issue to it, as the west will most definitely kill it.
for now, what can be done to avoid this fate?
We literally do nothing.
Distributors like Funi and Netflix are doing their very best to run it into the ground by licensing and broadcasting inaccessible shit.
Plus, even if it becomes mainstream in the west that's not likely to affect what gets made in nipland.

Is this the worst Gundam?
>shit action scenes
>good potential until they go to space
>"Happy" ending even though nina just killed millions of people but it's okay because she likes koi again
>The final battle is in shitty mobile armors
>only a few competent designs
You can leave a death note to a dumb kid stereotype, any race, any social class, any country, in a universe where death note never happened.
Which one would be the most entertaining and why?
fuck, marry, kill
Post your favorite DragonBall saga. Whole franchise included.
Pic related has some of the best moments in the entire series. It will always be the peak of DragonBall for me.
This is the ideal DB saga. You may not like it, but this is what peak anime looks like.
While those are pretty great, I'm a huge fan of Frieza himself, but my favorite SAGA is probably the Twenty Second Tenkaichi Budokai
Saiyan saga because it was just before fucked up power levels became a thing, and a lot of it is rooted in nostalgia for me because I remember watching it on TV as a kid and having never seen anything like it before.
When I went back to read the manga I still think it holds up and I think Goku vs Vegeta is one of the best fights in the series.
