Anime is NOT Dead/Dying.

"Shitting On Everyone Else's Dreams" is big business over in Wapan's animu industry.

I blame the moe shit and ridiculous deadlines that mangaka have to meet thereby forcing them to dump out content that isn't very well made.
>>
Well, I can't say is dying, the industry seems healthy to me. However content has been stagnant forever, a good, original series pops every now and then, but is mostly just fodder for the obsessive market.

Can't complain though, I have contributed jack shit to the industry by pirating like a mad cunt and shitposting about shows I don't like on the internet.

There's also the SJW issue that may endanger artistic freedom but is very unlikely to happen any time soon, so no worries.

Stop watching anime
No one needs you here

They're cartoons, no one else will take them seriously except for the fans and filthy rich corporate old men.
Anime is catered to its fans, nothing else.
Nobody wants to do anything remotely good these days except for no one.

>proceeds to pay for Guardians of the Galaxy and TBBT and further contribute to the death of cinema and television in the west
Everyone gets mad at the stuff that doesn't pander to them. I've heard fucking /v/ of all places say they're too smart to watch anime. I've seen people who sit on Facebook 24/7 say that anime is a waste of time. Everyone is a hypocrite. Including us. Just do and support what you enjoy. That easy. There are some legit anime oldfags that feel that anime have developed for the worse. I guess they're the only ones with with actual capacity to make such a judgement. Not the average fuck.

Can you please tell me what exactly? I honestly cannot bring myself to like anything airing right now. And everything I've liked before feels retroactively bad to me now.
>>
>>121881726
People make the mistake of putting together decades of decent anime, and then compare that to a single season and then go on to make angry online rants. These are good times indeed.

It also has never been this bad.

The otaku population can only shrink, since none of them are having children. And it's getting smaller all the time. The main problem is that as the Japanese otaku scene dies out, the internal otaku economy drives prices higher and those core otaku will pay more and more.

Because you keep making these threads instead of watching anime you dumb faggot. The board wouldn't exist if I would make a thread everytime someone says some stupid shit. So hang yourself OP.
>>
>>121881842
Which is why fucking anime studios need to have better western monetization scheme. They're losing a fuck-ton by not providing something that's just as easy as piracy, but higher in quality. I guess it's very hard for conservative Japan to pull something like that though.
>>
>>121881842
>The otaku population can only shrink, since none of them are having children

I have heard this a few times and it gets more and more retarded. Being an otaku isn't hereditary, it makes no difference whether they have kids or not.

Well there are some cute shows like Kancolle and Koufuku Graffiti which I enjoy a lot, Death Parade is really cool and interesting (was kind looking for it since Anime Mirai). Yatterman looks interesting, I have yet to catch up with it. Rolling Girls is a lotta fun, although I dropped it because I felt like it was going nowhere. There's also the previous season leftovers, Parasyte is fucking great and Aldnoah Zero seems good enough, I don't watch it though, is simply not my cup of tea. So on and so forth, everyone seems to be enjoying themselves lately.
>>
The only thing declining faster than the quality of anime is the quality of anime fans.

It's gotten to the point that people think crap like Steins;Gate and Fate Zero are significant entries in the medium, lol. Bunch of aspies with shit taste in anime.
>>
>>121881934
They are upset there are less anime made for kids. Less kids, more old otaku means more Chinese cartoon made for adult the seinen crowd.
>>
>>121881934
It means that if they have no friends to bring into the otaku scene, and normies have no interest in getting involved, and the otaku don't have kids or a girlfriend to get buying anime shit, then they remain the only people pouring money into that industry, and there's probably like 100,000 or less of the "hardcore otaku" left in Japan.
>>
>>121881957
Who the fuck cares? Are you going to make a thread about literally every fucking thing that someone says and you don't understand? Retards will always say stupid shit.
>>
It actually might be dying. there's been a slight drop on bd sales. And the Olympics are gonna fuck up a lot of things
>>
>>121882009
S;G is enjoyable and well-animated, mostly. I had a lot of fun watching it with some friends. also rich in dank memes
>>
>>121881842
>implying parents force anime onto their children

I'm sure the parents of most otaku are dissapoint in their child and don't know jack shit about the culture.
>>
It's actually kind of crazy how small the anime scene is in Japan now.

Like there are probably more fat anime nerds in the West now than Japan itself.
>>
>>121882128
You know a lot of anime is made for kids too, right? Ever heard of Doraemon or Crayon Shin-Chan?
>>
>>121882128
To be more clear, we make our own hobbies.

Yeah, you're right the quality of anime fans is declining fast.allne
>>
>>121882031
>and the otaku don't have kids or a girlfriend to get buying anime shit

Why would they do that? Dating someone doesn't mean you suddenly start having the same hobbies as them. Otakus dating or having kids is absolutely irrelevant, it won't have any kind of impact on the size of the otaku population.

Furthermore, anime for normalfags and kids stop being made because they don't watch it on TV, it's the content producers following the consumers, not the other way around as some seem to imply.

but I tought Under The Dog would revive anime.

>>121882214
>the stages of Tsundere

>implying tv isn't gonna die altogether in the next couple of years
>>
>>121882006

I forgot to mention Tokyo Ghoul, which is your typical edgy show that a lot of people enjoy, I didn't like it at all, but can't really talk shit about it, because it has enough quality and popularity to be considered a success.
>>
>>121882239
Why is it called Under The Dog anyway
>>
>>121882106
Daniel?
Jacob?
>>
>>121882226
this line of thinking is exactly why the anime otaku population will only die out. becausetheir hobby will die with them, isolated from the rest of society.
>>
>>121882196
Who made you start watching and getting into anime though? Is your father Ken Sama?
>>
>implying you're not already dead
>>
>>121882313
Do you honestly believe that being an otaku is in the genes or something?
>>
>>121879076
People have been spouting this shit since the '90s after the Japanese economy went to shit for a minute. Anime will always have an audience to cater to.
>>
>>121882330
my uncle who was a genuine NEET ( a cool NEET tho, had tons of burned games and a chest of anime shit )

he used to watch inuyasha and then i got into YGO around the same time and it only expanded from there
>>
>>121882303

I dunno. Lat time I heard of it they were announcing they were leaving the production company that lauched their KS campaign.

they seem to have kept most of the people actually making the anime, but still.

a NEET's brain is quite different from a normalfag's obviously.

Unfortunately it's not dead. It's diseased.
>>
>>121882351
I'm saying the anime scene isn't growing. So unless there is some kind of injection of new people to the scene, most of the really hardcore nerds will just die from poor health or age and nobody will replace them within the otaku economy, until it's like a couple thousand sweaty nerds in Akiha funding the whole industry
>>
>>121882538
Why exactly would no one replace them?
>>
>>121882464
And dying. Its not dead yet. Otaku are the ones killing it and sometimes keeping it alive. If it does die, I still have a backlog of series and there is always manga.
>>
>>121882538
You know people who enjoy anime have the same life span, if not just a bit shorter, than that of normal humans because you know we're all humans.
>>
>>121882538
Do you know what scene is growing? The gaming scene. And its growth is directly responsible to its decline in quality. Anime fans should consider themselves lucky that anime isn't a normalfag hobby. Lest you end up jaded and retarded like /v/.
>>
>>121879076
They don't browse /a/.
>>
>>121882752
A lot of this. This anime is dying meme is being forced from ANN. Reddit and MAL seem to have bought into it.
>>
>>121882736
the gaming scene is growing but the drop in quality is mostly the fault of normies being in charge of bossing around developers, sponsoring gaming events and media viraling
>>
>>121882736
You don't like trannies in you medieval role playing games?
>>
>>121882736
This.
We're at the point where you can hardly play any video games. Years ago I said that I want video games to be popular and now I wish that they were not. It's sad when you think about it because now I'd rather be called a fucking nerd for playing games instead of being accepted. I don't want to associate myself with /v/ at all though.
