Why is there such lack of Cyberpunk or Steampunk nowadays? Why did such a great genre die out of nowhere? I seroulsy wish there were more anime focused on these two genres.

It died because humanity realized that it'll never happen. It's the same story with NASA, they don't do space stuff anymore because we know we'll never actually go anywhere.

There was never a large amount in the first place.

Neither of those have ever been popular.

And? Stories with dragons and super powers exists and those are impossible, it has really nothing to do with that honestly.

I'm aware, but still, I loved the genre.

>mfw Blame! adaptation in Knights of Sidonia S2
So fucking hyyyyyyyype
>>
>>121451259
Why make something like that when they just can produce cute girls doing cute things with not much budget and receive more than double the production cost? Its the same reason why quality products are scarce nowadays.
>>
>>121451854
I can't wait for Blame!.
>>
>>121451904
>nowadays

That's right anon, the entire human race had been artistically sincere and dedicated towards artistic achievement instead of sales and money.

Until you came along. Then everything was terrible.
>>
Steampunk is style over substance so it never had a chance to take off, cyberpunk is alive but a lot of the shit it predicted is already here, just not as "awesome" as people expected.
>>
Are both Blame! and Digimortal done by the same guy?
>>
>>121451904
Quality products have always been scarce, it's just that as time passes the shitty products get completely forgotten making it seem like the "good old days" had a much higher ratio of quality product, when in reality you had to sift through as much shit back then as you do today.
>>
>>121451854
You know they would fuck up if they try Blame! with CG
>>
>>121451981
Can't blame people for not knowing about the shit of old since only good shit remains on people's minds
>>
>>121452048
Yeah, Tsutomu Nihei.
>>121452078
idk man, Sidonia turned out pretty fantastic. Not to mention Blame!'s already been animated with CG in the form of Blame! Prologue which was a pretty short OVA made up of two 4-minute episodes. It's pretty meh overall but there's a scene in the second episode that's just Killy walking around and it's actually really nice.

>>121452078
>If
It's already confirmed

>psycho pass
>cyberpunk

>Nips will never produce a show set in the Shadowrun universe
>We will never watch someone geek the mage, conserve ammo, shoot straight, and NOT make a deal with a dragon
>We will never see matrix fights or astral plane exploration
>There will never be a rag tag group of chummers with likeable characters

Fuck this gay Earth.

My /tg/ nigga.

>>121452244
Blame! looks too complicated to pull off with CG alone.
I mean it would require a huuuuuuuuge budget.
Even though Sidonia was perfectly executed but Blame! has more chapters and more complex drawing compared to Sidonia.
That doesn't mean i won't pray like Samuel Jackson praying for Royals with Cheese

>Confirmed
Citiation needed

>>121451259
Because it's a genre that is not in-tune with current times.
