Kyoani is starting to whore their characters out and Dogakobo is putting in more fanservice.

I like the cute designs in modern moe series.

Too bad they're complete shit otherwise.

The decline of anime-original content in adaptations. We will likely never have a Bokurano or Rideback fiasco ever again.
>>
>>149222966

Yeah instead we get shitty cliffhanger endings where nothing resolved except leaving the viewer disappointed
>>
>>149223022
If I could choose between the last five episodes adapting more of the source material, and then having to read the source material for the ending, or the last five episodes being some garbage ending the anime staff thought up, I'd take the no-ending every time.

More shows are doing interesting things with their linework and filters. Watercolour art styles, grainy pencil-like or heavy lines, and the like. You used to get one Lupin the Third-style linework show a season or so, now there's several per season.

I think we're on the verge of a progressive art leap in the techniques used in anime.

Lower-powered heroes who don't become exponentially more powerful in a single ep.

Grimgar was a good example; almost too slow, in fact. Admittedly, that probably had more to do with budget than art, but the emphasis on teamwork and gradual progression for most of the series felt more real than most power fantasies.

Agreed, though Grimgar felt like it should have been a 24 episode show, or longer

Haven't read the LNs for other series but I did dig MT. While no masterpiece, especially the vol before last, it kinda made me root for the MC towards the end compared to the start of the series and it did feel sad when he died.

Too bad we didn't see the end of hitogami but I hear some serious reveals are happening in the spinoff series where Laplace is the mc.

>>What's a recent trend/development in anime that you like?

I like that actual character developments are happening now, instead of dicking around for years and years with tease, like Ranma 1/2 used to, and never resolving romantic tension.

Some examples from recent shit I've seen:

Haganai: Kodaka dates Yukimura
Konosuba: Kazuma dates Megumin, but comes painfully close to fucking her and Darkness at times
Overlord: Nfirea marries and fucks Enri
Re:Zero: Rem confesses to Subaru, who confesses to Emilia
Valvrave: Haruto rapes Saki
Goblin Slayer: Guild Girl dates Goblin Slayer
Dragonball Super: Trunks dates Mai
POKEMON: Serena french kisses Ash and finally gives this shit show an OTP

It used to be stuff like this only happened in IF routes of VN, with the main girl set in stone for romance if at all. If there was fucking it was portrayed as destructive (School Days, KGNE, White Album 2).

More anime using 90s-esque art and 3-tone shading like Kabaneri

More bitchy, self-absorbed female MCs like Chitose
>>
>>149222142
If you mean by development in this season. Then nothing. All I am watching this season is IBO S2. Last season had some nice things like Alderamin on the Sky and Amaama to Inazuma. Each season I am watching less and less. Hopefully next season will be better.
>>
>>149230093
Most isekai aren't harems though, I think.

Has there been one besides KonoSubs this year?
>>
>>149229649
Would this even be considered an isekai? It has the tropes for sure, but he only went back in time.
>>
>>149230108
I haven't read/watched everything here, but taking Re:Zero as an example at least, it's still painfully light compared to what you get in a VN.
