why don't they make good anime anymore? Just look at the charts, shit is disgusting. As the years pass the number of good anime per season decreases heavily, to the point where I watch 1 or maybe 2 new anime in a year. And I'm not talking about "old people not liking new stuff" bullshit, I'm talking plots, storytelling, and art has become a copy of copy of a copy of something good.
>>
What anime do you think are good?
>>
Industry too geared towards producing what sells, a lot of shows that even try to be unique and are genuinely good don't sell because they aren't moeshit or harems.

Risk not worth the reward for studios.

You don't need to ask him, I think it's obvious he has objective taste.

I wholeheartedly agree, sadly the only thing we can do is endure this and hope that somehow they'll start producing more quality series again. Despera will save anime.

Holy shit that is retarded. There is not such thing as objectively good, so it is very relevant to ask what anime he actually considers good, since he seems to find modern anime so terrible.

anime with persona art that are original and well made. anime with good plots that make you think and not the usual shit we see every season.

anime has become infested with boring art that is repeated in every show you see. protagonists and supporting characters are clones and in almost every anime they remind you of some other character.

I've been watching anime since 2000, and I can easily say that you are full of shit. Every season is always about the same, there is your regular sol, harem and shonen.

Sort of, but adult anime viewers are less pedo and more escapist touchless virgins who just want to self-insert themselves into unrealistic sexual situations with cute girls. They don't give a shit about anything but a basic action oriented narrative and moeblob females they can daydream about.

The point is that you wouldn't use it if you knew what you were saying. It's like someone discussing cacti at a nursery and saying "cactuses".

Even if it is a right way to say it going by English grammar, nobody on /a/ says it that way, showing you're probably just some /v/ kiddy who wandered in here thinking he could get a pat on the back for displaying some pretentious opinion akin to an upvote on reddit.

Okay, you get one.

That one is legit though, i've heard shit taste norms talking about AoT twice in the past few days. Everyone has seen that show, shit is everywhere.

I'm pretty sure "animes" is the hip /a/ way of saying it, also acceptable are "animu" and "chinese cartoons", because as we all know, we need to be tongue on cheek about our love of anime, because it's not like we're weeaboos or anything ha ha ha

honestly, the fact that you pick it out shows that you're new to /a/, irony is thick on the ground here.

the truth. Nobody saying "animes" is saying it because they honestly think that's the pluralization of it, every single time it's typed, it's because someone is trying to make a funny/fit in and not actually say the word properly.

I thought KLK fans were the ones with memetaste (whatever this means), half of them are tumblr landwhales and redditors after all

KLK was disappointing and the animation was mostly average at best with a few scenes of quality sprinkled in, easily Imaishi's shittiest work. The plot was a mess and for a show essentially about fighting it had maybe two decent fight scenes, the rest was "DONT LOSE YOUR WAYYYY" and recycled animation.

It's one of the worst examples you could use for modern animation still being visually appealing.

This can all be avoided by just not watching airing shit.

Let the MAL power-users sort through 40 shows a season. Just wait until a year or two after something finishes, if people still remember it, it's probably worth watching.

Only watching DVD/BD rips of completed shows yields a visually quality increase as well, there is literally no reason to watch airing shit unless you are a masochist.
