Shut ins and their loudmouths now control the industry as the vocal minority.
>tfw we will never have animes like this
>tfw those types anime styles will never develop into this
>I would have liked to say that Akame ga Kill did it
No KLK did
There's no imagination anymore. Only full-blown otaku pandering.
there are still lots of badass animes
there's just a lot more stuff being made in general so there's going to be way more shit as well
especially because such a huge part of the demo is really weak self-indulgent people with no taste for sex, violence or complexity in their anime
They where shit but are enjoyable because of their 80s cheesyness. New shows that try their hand at gritty grimderp take themselves too seriously while still following shitty anime cliches by the numbers.
On that note anyone dissapointed with 009 vs Devilman? Even Go Nagai has toned down his hyperviolence
Too many problematic CIS white males for you buddy?
Is there anything that even comes close to this style of beautiful matte backgrounds? That's the one thing that sticks out to me the most, that particular type of mechanical/electronic backgrounds with the lights and panels and weird wires and antennas and all that.
Kenshiro is superior to whatever limp-wristed preteen edgelord void of principals your spineless numale ass self inserts as.
nothing happened, you just aren't watching the right anime
I don't understand why they just died off in the late 90's or so, too much stuff looks bland as fuck these days with no detail.
OVAs are only a viable format if you're mentally fourteen and think quality is directly related to the amount of gore and death involved. Otherwise you run out of material pretty quickly.
I dont know why people think violent=good, its almost like there is only 14 years old turbonerds on this board.
Look to akame ga kill, 99% of the cast dead because the author cant write for shit and can only sell on shock value for edge 14 year old teens, is this what a badass anime is?
You guys are bad with your "muh violence, muh mature anime for mature and enlightened guys such as myself" in the same way autistic waifu fags are bad with waifufaggotry.
Neither side actually wants more quality, you just want anime to carter to your own refined brand of autism.
>I dont know why people think violent=good
Blame Game of Thrones
Everyone is a violent psychopath, killing and rape happen literally every milisecond and there are no colors besides shit brown and gray = mature
Game of thrones isn't bad though, every main character that died had a perfectly fine set up for death and fit with their established character. Even if it come when you least expected it. At least for the first four seasons. Ned, Oberyn, Robb, Tywin, Joffrey and Robert all died in sensible ways.
>Game of thrones isn't bad though
Where did it all go so wrong?
that's not even funny as a joke dude that anime bankrupted manglobe
Shouldn't you be back on tumblr buddy?
One of the only characters that I came to like was Bols because he at least seemed somewhat human and not just a caricature, of course such a thing would never be allowed in agk and he and his family were killed off.
People grew up and got bored of edgy teenage shit
How would the main driving force behind the entire anime industry not exist, Jaden?
There's that image again.
The studio in question has basically never produced anything, he is not speaking on behalf of the entire industry, and there were and are people making "non-otaku" anime all the time, so his complaints are groundless.
Someone is not pandering just because they're making something you personally don't like.
>too much stuff looks bland as fuck these days with no detail
The quality of background art in TV anime has gone up by leaps and bounds, and you sure as shit can't accuse it of lacking detail.
I've always wondered, did that owner describe what he personally wanted to make? I mean, for all I know he could be the world's biggest advocate of yaoi bungee-jumping hentai.
I thought illya was pretty bad ass
>that Star Wars video
Holy fuck that was great
I can't understand why this movie isn't more legendary and didn't get a bunch of sequels
Absolute fucking joy to watch, has mostly nothing to do with the original pulp stories but what the fuck ever
That's so broad, though. It just seems silly that people assume this literally who whose name they aren't even given in the photo would have made something good, let alone cater exactly to their tastes, just because he apparently doesn't like what he's making right now.
Many people are incredibly deluded and think everyone that makes anime, manga and videogames really want to make stuff like "mature and deep stuff" like "the good old days" and not what they currently enjoy doing
You sound like a pussy who looks down on movies like Die Hard or Predator for not being sophisticated enough for you as you sit in your fedora drinking a wine cooler watching some gobbledygook Dutch black and white "cinematic presentation" followed by playing Gone Home and The Last of Us.
you're aware Lensman is basically a more off the wall apeshit version of Star Wars written by an insane scientist right? Japan did their own thing with it but first and foremost the principle objective should be to deliver on action and adventure which from these webms this anime seems to have accomplished.
liberals prefer to snap instead of clap because clapping can trigger other liberals' made-up anxieties
It began in poetry clubs since that's where they congregated back in the 20th century before social media was around
Most Westerners have this idea that creators and fans (otaku) are totally different, mutually exclusive groups of people in Japan. The creators want to make stuff like Akira, GitS, Bebop, Angel's Egg and Evangelion (exactly the kind of anime that Westerners are into, what a coincidence). The fans are nothing but whiny manchild hyper-consumers who just want tits, panties and uguu, and every time the creators provide those they are merely engaged in pandering.
In reality, the difference between creators and fans is non-existent in Japan.
If it were any modern protagonist with muscles that aren't bigger than my head, you'd be in those greentext threads calling him a pussy moralfag, but when someone from the 80s does it it's immune to criticism.
Honestly, if anyone held up Die Hard and Predator as the fucking apexes of the medium that we should be striving to return to, I'd be right there with that anon in looking down on those faggots. Silly manly action is fun and all, but nostalgiafags make it out to be somehow the pinnacle of art while everything else is pandering kiddie shit, and that's just laughable.
>you'd be in those greentext threads calling him a pussy moralfag
Nope, because modern anime protags have no morals, and when they do they sure as fuck aren't like Kenshiro's. I'd watch tokusatsu if I wanted actual heroism in Japanese media.
>modern anime protags have no morals
They sure as fuck do, it's what people complain about all the time. "HE'S TOO PRUDE ABOUT SEX," "HE DOESN'T KILL HIS ENEMIES," "HE SHOULD BE SLAPPING EVERYONE MORE."
You've to be more specific next time.
>badass = bloodshed
Well, a massive backlash against the evil animus happened, so it's generally avoided.
And besides, massacre stuff was always rare, it's just that in the 90s tons of OVA were made that catered in some way to Americans, so they were more violent.
Also, stuff like Blood-C is still being made.
Typical distorted nostalgia crap.
The one above it is Gundam Unicorn, I'm certain you can recognise bottm right if you try.
I'm not entirely sure what the one to the right of Hyougemono is, Break Blade? And on top and bottom of Steins;Gate I'm drawing complete blanks.
They are good ACTION movies.
They do pretty much everything right in being some of the finest examples of that genre.
But, surprise, they suck at everything else, because they mercifully don't try to be much else.
The problem is less people being nostalgic about the action stuff (especially since RL action stuff sucks these days, give me some old Arnold or Jackie Chan movies over those any day), but, as said, that nostalgiafaggots (especially amongst the animu fandom) think it's everything there should be, because they were 16 years old edgy teenagers listening to Linkin Park and reading Rob Liefeld comics when the 90s-animu-wave hit.
And that would be fucking boring and monotonous.
Berserk airing this Summer should get you excited if anything, anon.
Jojo Part 4 has had plenty of gore up til now.
There's even a scene where a dude bites a dog's head off and spits the blood from the head in the dog's owner's mouth.
We stopped having protags who are old enough to have left school. Even in pure fantasy or scifi settings, there will be Japanese highschool out of nowhere.
Pic related -- rare exception.
these threads are always the same
its a mix of
>i don't like to research anime and watch a lot of it and truly know the genre, i rely on other people to do that for me and just watch what's popular on /a/
>that means i can name old series that are like this easier than I can name new series that are like this
>my ignorance has tricked me into believing that there are no new animes
>i'm too retarded to accept that popular tropes and aesthetics change over time
>i am a fucking hipsters and never satisfied with what is current and popular
Is there a name for the future looking like broken down rusty shit? Or is that just 'industrial'? VOTOMs had that look too.
The point isn't that we think this stuff was the majority of what was made. It's that there was a time in which it was made at all. There simply is nothing now that is comparable to the high quality ovas of the late 80s and early 90s.
But we still get good stuff.
And the old stuff was full of shit as well.
TIE Fighter is pretty fucking good though.
I hate how everything is rotoscoped making the movement feel so weird, but the guy worked over 3 years for this and there is definitely some passion.
>i am a fucking hipsters and never satisfied with what is current and popular
Are you 12? Like what, Poopa, Akame ga shit, Chaos Dragon, Freezing?
Guess what they have in commmon? They're the worst manga and anime of the decade and not even good to laugh at, just plain dogshit.
Gb2Gaia faggot or lurk more.
>I used to really love it
Holy mother of shit fucking taste the weekend summer is strong.
>popular tropes and aesthetics change over time
This is huge and I don't see it come up that much. all these webms look dated as fuck, which has come to be cool now. I think we're moving to a new cyperpunk trend with gits getting an awful Hollywood reboot along with a blade runner sequel. vaporwave gaining popularity could also be pointed to as evidence of the comeback. Anime will probably put out some 80s aesthetic shit too.
A new something sure, but not necessarily cyberpunk (emphasis punk). The current sci-fi trend is more towards a 'cleaner, smoother and less gruff' aesthetics. At least that's the impression I'm getting.
I urge you to compare any season from the 1980's to a recent one. Aside from OVA's, there really wasn't too much airing for adults at all. The past was not as good for anime as you think.
Have you ever considered the idea that you are pretentious and superficial? And what do you think moe anime is generally about anyway? I didn't see a lot of plot in Minami-ke and Ichigo Marshmallow either.
have you considered that you have issues when you start judging others as superficial while keeping yourself high up on a pedestal away from judgement and criticism ? I dont have to be superficial to KNOW your favorite shows are shit but if it helps you come to terms then call me whatever you want. There is positive, negative and something people often forget which is neutral ground. Not everyone is your enemy just because they see one aspect of your life as total shit
An entire season of nothing happening doesnt amount to a show. SoL is the Reality Tv of anime. enjoy your jersey shore
The thing is that as technology progresses, the classic cyberpunk aesthetic becomes less and less representative of what our future might look like.
Fiction imitates reality, and with the current real-life trends toward minimalism, wireless portable tech and clean-looking computers and robots, current sci-fi works draw from that rather than the clunky, gritty, outdated cyberpunk look.
>Aside from OVA's, there really wasn't too much airing for adults at all.
That's bullshit, you'd know if you actually watched the stuff. The kids shows of the time have more worth while in them than the 'mature' but mostly bland OVAs.
Because everyone now in anime are pussy.
because new world order want everyone pussyif and can Fight back.
Why do I keep see thread about people bitch about big boobs your fucking nuts it big boobs are best thing in the word.
