Anime as a medium is going down-hill rapidly. In the last couple of years this medium has gotten so fucking shit, I don't know if I can continue watching it. The last good year was 2011:
>Madoka
>Steins;Gate
>Usagi Drop
>Hunter X Hunter
>Kaiji
>Penguindrum
>Nichijou
>gossick
>Anohana
>Tiger and Bunny

Meanwhile I can count the number of shows I enjoyed since then on one hand.

I'm inclined to agree. I'm sure people ITT will disagree. Maybe we're right and they're blind, or maybe it really is just as good or better for them and we just aren't being appealed to in particular. Maybe it's a downward spiral, maybe it's a temporary lull and things will swing back in our direction.
somethig inspiring will happen in Japan and spark new genres and styles.

Anyway, I feel the exact same way about videogames. 2011 was a solid year.

Well, yeah, for sure. A large portion of stuff coming out these days is yuri/moe stuff which I can't stomach or light novel adaptations which I also usually have trouble stomaching.

I disagree that 2011 was a solid year for games though. Pokemon gen 5, Catherine, Arcana Heart, Yakuza 4 and Witcher 2 were the only games I really enjoyed that year. i mean, it was still miles better than last year but certainly not great.

They'll crack to jewluminati pressure, let in a ton of foreigners, and then it will be permanent shit.

>>138735709
The best year of anime was the year you picked it up because back then you could hand pick all the good stuff. It's not going to be as good when it's current.

That's why I watch it in spurts
>>
>>138736320
I always watch stuff after ts finished airing anyway so I've always just handpicked the stuff that looks good. There have just been gradually less good shows over the last 5 years or so.

>>138736145
Oh shit I was thinking of 2010 I think. 2011 was kind of lame.

I guess it had Mortal kombat revival, pokemon white, deus ex, marvel vs capcom, la noire, infamous 2, dark souls, uncharted 3, sonic generations, and Mario 3d land. You may think I'm a pleb but I'm easy to please and enjoyed all of those games but none of them blew me away, some bordering on mediocre. Much better than every year after it though holy shit. It's just sad looking at 98 or 99 in gaming and comparing it to 2014. Sorry for not /a/ at all.

Yea its hard being a modern anime fan who doesn't like moe. It's ok and can be fun every now and then, but to say it isn't unoriginal low cost/ low risk and coming out by the boatload while whole other genres are being ignored would be ignorant.
>>
>>138736438
Oh I forgot Dark Souls and sonic genarations.

Human revolutions and 3D world did nothing for me though and I was salty about them releasing UMVC3 the same year as the original game.

Yeah the last few years of games have been kinda sub-par, but I don't feel like the drop in quality is nearly as noticeable as anime.
>>
>>138736495
Yea I just enjoyed all those games (like I would a simple anime with cute girls) but they didn't blow my mind or anything like 2010's red dead redemption and fallout new Vegas or gurren lagann or something. (Japanese games fell off around the time ps3 and Wii came out im general and have only gotten more sparse so weebs are out of luck). I'd consider those to be the last two solid years, not great but solid. 2012-16 have had 2 or 3 games I enjoyed all year, despite playing just about anything.

>>138736320
Is right, but I do think there has been a drought after looking at notable releases. The fact is we've been in a global recession and all media has had to play it safe, hopefully they'll start making cool projects again. I'm worried that these big publishers and corporations are getting lazy and realised mass marketable trash is much easier.

There's a comfortable status quo and risks are being taken with the medium

Sales for Blu Ray/DVD and merchandise are dictated by otaku, fujoshi and established big name series that always get attention

Over here, standards of people lower over time to the point where they'll praise whatever mediocrity of the season as great and detractors are just buzzwords like "fedoras" and "shonenbabbies"

It's a sorry state. It's a medium like any other and this is how its treated. The sad part? It's even worse in the West.

sorry kid but nobody cares about how insecure you are about being a pedophile

>>138736976
>Literally picking the best ones to point out bad shows
I'll bet you're gonna list Jojo.
>>
>>138737125
Huh?
>>
>>138737080
That is complete bullshit.
You blatantly left out that only the more popular series which were already eaten up by fujos and otaku are the ones that make their way over here and into the homes of normalfags.
Those are the idiots, who post on this very board, that actually believe recent trash is a good standard.
>>
>>138737198
I don't even like jojo but I can see why that show is right up your alley.
