What do you think is the biggest problem with anime today or anime in general?
>>
/a/
>>
Nothing.
>>
>>138319515
the MCs and their Harems
>>
>>138319515
Adapting from poor source material
>>
Not enough cute girls. Too many westaboos trying to copy gaijin degeneracy.
>>
The fanbase that allows mediocre shows to continue and/or keep being relevant
>>
petty philosophy
>>
>>138319515

Lack of talented people in anime industry.
>>
>>138319572

there's nothing wrong with harems, anon. The problem with the harems is they don't push the boundaries and when they do push the boundaries they do it in an annoyingly edgy or just plain dumb way that just panders to a whole different kind of dumb fetish(see School Days)

>>138319515

read the novels, anime's are trash.

Not enough positive role models
>>
Reliance on Otaku, and therefore pandering.
Also annoyingly unnecessary sexism and homophobia. Not even tumblr, I just don't know why it's in there. It's not funny, it serves no point, it's not plot relevant, it's just stupid and a time waster.
>>
>>138319707
>there's nothing wrong with harems
Except it's unnecessary and retarded
>>
Anime was a mistake.
>>
>>138319599
Basically this, I'm not even mad at the whole "studios only try to make things that sell" thing, but rather at the fact that they still manage to make garbage that even at first glance obviously have 0 potential straight from the get go.
>>
>>138319830
Hes a terrible role model tho.
>>
>>138319853

harems don't kill anime, anon, bad writers do
>>
>>138319938
Who said does? Can even read nigger?
>>
>>138319830
This. And you don't have to be Kamina-Level to be positive. For example: Yahari S1, 8man is a scummy looking loner wanna be edgelord. But he still does the right thing without regard for himself.
>>
>>138319847

This, anime studios are trying to wring money from the most hardcore fan base instead of spreading to mainstream audiences.

What other medium do you know of where 10,000 disc sales is considered a success?
>>
>>138319974
it does*
>>
New comers getting pissing because it doesn't pander to them.
>>
QUALITY issues
>>
>>138319938
Harems are an unnecessary part of so many stories that do no need them even in the stories that are supposedly good. That's even ignoring all the shitty harem shows that have nothing going for them except for the harems.
>>
Japs have shit taste.
>>
Normalfags forcing thier way into the medium.
>>
>>138320091

How would you do a good harem scenario/plot?
>>
>>138320091
Can you give an example of a good harem a bad harem and a good show with unnecessary harem elements.
I liked chaika more with the harem stuff than I would have without it and it was basically a fantasy series with unnecessary harem shit
>>
Trying to write their own stories and a reliance on adapting from manga.

Imagine how few people in the world can write an engaging and thought provoking story. Now imagine how few of those rare people just happen to be working in the anime industry. On the manga side you run into the same problem, how many world class writers just happen to know how to draw as well?

They should be adapting literature instead.
>>
>>138320213
Where the MC is super dense oh and he has this secret god level power that he doesnt know about and the bigger his harem gets the stronger he gets also he is very protective of his harem
>>
less shittly LN adaptation
>>
>>138320270
So more LN adaptations?
>>
Otaku pandering. I know its done to make things sell well but with less time spent pandering to otakushits more time can be spent on quality content.

I think what he means is classic literature

>>138320213
A guy lives together with a bunch of different girls who all love him and get along and they all fuck him sometimes. And it's a SoL.
So a fair amount of eroges.
>>
>>138319515
not enough money, not taking enough risks

the latter probably caused by the former
>>
>>138320270
>>138320395
I tried reading that and it was boring as fuck.
I imagine anime writers probably got bored when they tried reading that garbage too, so they can't even adapt it because they keep falling asleep.

Seriously though, they're good reads if you want to know stuff and seem smart or cultured or whatever, but in terms of entertainment, anime beats it hands down.
>>
>>138320613
You tried and failed to read uylysses?
>>
There are are too many writers who have very little real world experience outside of anime and manga. They frequently struggle with exploring issues outside of their own one-sided views.
>>
My main complaint is probably the lack of innovation.
Everything feels very samey once you've watched anime for ~10 years

That probably goes for any medium, but at least it feels a lot like anime is a lot less diverse in terms of themes.
>>
My biggest issus is the western online community constantly throwing hissy fits and crying about evil otaku because they aren't being pandered too, even going as far as to say anime they don't like being made means the industry dying despite the fact that most of them have never supported the industry in their lives
>>
>>138321336
Western fans tend to like shows that are relatively unpopular in Japan like Trigun and SamFlam. I think this can lead to casual fans who watch outlier shows and being unhappy there are very few simiar shows
>>
>>138321336
Paying for netflix = saving anime
>>
There is nothing wrong with anime movies. Anime tv shows just lack budget to have good enough plot and shit.
>>
>>138322154
why does lower budget have to meat crap plot?

Apart from a few productions, most of the anime Americans and other countries got were the things networks and distributors were able to buy for cheap at the time. Things like Outlaw Star are little more than cult hits in Japanese markets and it was because these works under-performed that Americans were able to get them. And the works of directors like Shinchiro Watanabe do better with Western audiences than Japanese ones, to the point that Space Dandy premiered in the USA before it premiered in Japan. A lot of the stuff brought in by US Manga Corps. were bottom of the barrel by Japanese standards but often did appeal to Western sensibilities.

All the girls are assassins trying to kill the MC for different reasons so they try to get close to him but he misunderstands and thinks they all want the D
>>
>>138323298
MC would be dead when he meets the first girl with that.

This had some literature adaptations, and there was some pretty entertaining ntr I must say

How do you people define otaku pandering? I hear this complaint a lot but what distinguishes an anime that happens to have appeal among the so-called otaku and what is actually an anime primarily geared towards obsessive nerds?
>>
>>138323630
If the anime is the first to do something that otakus just happen to like, then it's just that but if it is trying to use all the things otakus want to try to market to otakus then it's pandering.
>>
>>138323692

Can you actually provide examples?

I'm beginning to think that most of the anime people call otaku pandering are just pandering to Japanese sensibilities in general.
>>
>>138323741
You can take the cute girls doing cute things genre and look at all the shitty shows that came after K-on's success for example. K-on might not be the first but it was the first that was that successful and it spawned all those shitty cgdct shows with nothing going for them but the cute girls.
>>
>>138323879

But aren't most cute girls doing cute things shows primarily geared towards girls?
>>
>>138323953
no

Shits like that in all mediums. Thats why you get to really appreciate the good and innovate ones when they come out in the pile of garbage.

You can't really expect the majority of the people working in an industry to be some sort of genius. Majority will be shitters.
