How do you feel about the current state of the anime industry?
>>
Been a bit shit since 2012.
>>
There's good, there's bad. Same as always.

I'm happy with it.
>>
>>121094962
I don't know about the current state of the anime industry, so I am going to scream VICTORIKA!!!!!!!!!!
>>
>>121094962
's fine.
>>
>>121094992
It seems like people were obsessed with her before the anime even began.
>>
>>121094988
This.

And no, moeshit is not killing the industry.
Also, I hate the term 'moeshit'.
Actually, I'm a bit unsure when the people using the term moeshit.
Is that means:
a. cute girls doing cute things?
b. shows with cute character designs regardless of the contents?
c. shits that don't cater to my taste?
d. something else?

FULL 3D is the next boogieman. Watch out for it.

It's a comfy watch in bed animu
>>
>>121095211
That's pretty dishonest. I love it.
>>
>>121095040
I think it just means "Hello there, I hail from /v/. Would you recommend me something like cowboy bepop or dragonball z?"
>>
>>121095723
But anon I literally watch it in bed
>>
>>121094962
I filter 80 percent of /a/
>>
>>121095789
Everyone who talks about anime who hails from /v/ originally hailed from /a/ but then left in the great moeshittening of 2007
>>
>>121095840
Do you have the Japanese cold?

>>121095845
Then go back to /v/ already. It saves your time and effort to avoid 'weebshit' anyways, doesn't it?
>>
>>121094988

Spot on. Watch it if you want to, don't if you don't.

Simply just having fun watching a series seems to be a foregone concept.
>>
>>121095861
I doubt most of current /v/ was even around in 2007
>>
>>121095899
Thats why I added "who talks about anime"
>>
Moeshit and lolishit is the cancer, must remove kawaii

We need some more shit like Jojo, AoT and Higurashi, and pretty much anything Ghibli does
>>
>>121095959
Isn't ghibli dead? What was their last movie?
>>
>>121094962
Anime is hardly dying as people like to say, Its actually becoming more popular, The problem is That when anime came into the west the Weird stuff that would turn off Normal Americans(And believe me ,there was a lot, Its just forgotten) stayed in Japan while the Anime that Was americanised enough(Brokeback Bebop and such) was brought in.
Stuff like Moe, Fanservice Bishounen and Slice of Life isn't anything new, Its just that They didn't come to the west untill later on and now people are complaining about them.
>>
>>121096128
because it's fucking gay?
>>
>>121096128
I doubt most people here watch anime only after it has been "brought to the west"

Really, the weird stuff that would cause normal people to go nuts just doesn't get made much anymore unless it's a hentai.

It's formulaic.

Same stories, different costumes.

I usually get bored with most shows by the time they get to the Beach/Pool/Festival episode.

I'm not even sure if I like anime anymore. I think i just watch it out of habit.
>>
>>121096191
Welcome to how movie critics feel. Now you know why weird shit wins oscars all the time.

/a/ personified, everybody
>>
>>121095999
They're technically still a studio but have no plans or movies in the works. I think The Tale of Princess Kaguya was their last movie.
>>
>>121096208
I thought /a/ personified was "HOLY SHIT LOOK AT THAT ARMPIT FAPFAPFAP"
>>
>>121096220
>I want to protect her armpits

I like it, I used to complain about too many otome adaptions/not enough shoujo manga adaptions but things improved.
>>
>>121096205
All the recent Oscar winners have been safe bets; 12 Years a Slave, Argo, The Artist. Boyhood is going to get the top honors in two weeks and that was boring as shit.

Do you guys think that if a studio of today tried they could make an anime that looked and felt just like an "80s" or "90s" anime?
>>
>>121096266
I'm talking weird to me, i.e. the person who only watches action, fantasy and horror movies.
>>
>>121096268
Nope.
There's not enough industry professionals willing to pull it off.
>>
>>121096128
Agreed. When anime first started being marketed in the west, it would make sense to test the waters with the most normal and tame series they had at the time. Much how if one were to get into alcohol you don't immediately start out with bootleg antifreeze moonshine. Problem is that they ran out of tame series due to there not being many.

An interesting plot doesn't sell figurines and pillows. Boobs do.

Surprisingly solid, despite terrible economy. I am an oldfag too.

Porcelin pipe, what a stupid fucking bitch. That shit would get so hot in your hands, and what's worse, it would probably shatter if the tobacco got too hot.
>>
>>121096327
80s and 90s anime had lots of boobs, the OAVs at least. The problem was it was in edgy dark settings rather than happy joyful slice of life ones

No, their last movie was When Marnie Was There. Which everyone forgets because it's Yonebayashi and nobody cares about him.

Stagnant. They've found a way that works and most studios aren't going to try anything new until they start going under but by then it will be too late but that shouldn't happen any time soon and there are still a couple really good shows every year.

How many of you guys walked into a Suncoast or whatever in the 90s just to catch glimpses of just the box covers of the strange and exotic anime with strange, post-apocalyptic or occult themes?

They could make something that's really fucking close but not "just like". It's like asking a car company if they could make a car that looks just like the Model A, of course they have the resources and knowledge but what would be the point of going back, it's not going to sell well today so there's no reason for any company to ever do it.

It doesn't fucking matter, the very idea of a porcelin pipe is fucking OFFENSIVE. It's like making a soup bowl out of talcum powder.

Japan is running low on manga to adapt so it moved on to lns. What happens when it runs low on LNs too?

>How does a medium goes from Slayer to Mahouka and World Break

People don't want adventure as much as they want security in this day and age.

That is bullshit and you know it.

You don't know what you're talking about, Boyhood was a incredible cinematic experience. It was made in 12 years.

The preface is: current, financially viable, demographically viable manga

So no that viking manga ain't never gonna be an animu
