Since 2009, anime has been on a downward spiral.
You want to know why Cowboy Bebop and NGE are still remembered across the world to this day? Do you want to know why people consider berserk 1997 to be a masterpiece? Do you want to know why Ghost in the Shell was so popular it got a live-action Hollywood reboot?
Because they were original. Most anime nowadays just rips off earlier series, but adds a gimmick. Little Witch Academia ripped of Magic User's Club, but it's Gainax so hurr durr it's good.
For every good anime nowadays, there are 50 pieces of shit disguised as "animation."

Tatami Galaxy aired in 2010.

You are wrong. There were bad seasons before and there will continue to be bad ones in the future.
But even if they do not suit your personal tastes you cannot deny that good anime are currently being produced.
>>
moeshit killed anime
>>
The only one to blame here is you, OP. Why would the anime industry, a business, make anime for people that never gave a single cent to them?
Otakus and moe eaters buy BDs, single CDs and expensive merch. Manime fans think they're hot shit because they watched Cowboy Bebop reruns in Toonami years ago.

I actually think some of the best anime have come out Post-2007. The 2000s weren't really that good of a decade, in general. The 2011s have been a great decade for anime.

Remember when anime was funny?

what the fuck happened to animes like

detroit metal city
seto no hayanome
cromartie high
osomatsu

the only anime that has made me laugh recently was dragon ball with the baseball episode

every fucking comedy anime nowdays is a fucking harem and the "jokes" are just the fanservice moments

c'mon now

I'd suggest Gugure Kokkuri-san, it's pretty funny in my opinion.
>>
>>157932479
What the fuck are you talking about, both berserk and GitS weren't original, they were based off manga.
Both Ideon and Turn A Gundam are far better, and even post 2000 Mononoke and Kino no Tabi are better than the manga adaptations of berserk and GitS.

Prison School is the laziest harem setting ever and is like 60% blatant fanservice by page count, and yet so far:
- No one has a harem or even a steady girlfriend
- No one has gotten laid and barely anyone even gets to cop a feel in most circumstances
- Actually full of humor that doesn't rely on sex or fanservice (though there's some that does for sure), and actually often funny beyond just Japan's low-ass standards for "humor", some genuinely good stuff
- Entertaining overdramatic plots for a while, but if you get to the "cavalry battle" and it's not already a favorite series of yours, don't push yourself, the whole arc sucks and is long and not enough is published yet to know if it's worth reading through to get to the next arc...though recent chapters have often been pretty funny, especially the Jewyoshi chapters

You're dumb. There are hundreds, if not thousands of shows from before 2000 that are garbage. Most of them have been forgotten. You've only seen the good ones that even normies have heard of.

There are still good shows getting made, but you're also aware of the shitty ones.
>>
>>157932479
Because nostalgia and people moving on, the reason that bebop stuck around in the west is because it's entry level shit that even casuals who don't like anime watched. And being entry level shit people who have stuck with anime have fond memories of it since it was one of their firsts.

What the hell?
>Black Lagoon
Pre-2009.
>Sakamichi
Decent music drama, shitty romance.
>Tsuki ga Kirei
Decent, but not even top five of the season.
>Colorful
Boring as fuck, the worst movie of Hara's career.
>Kokkuri-san
Decent, but again, outclassed by various things just in its own season.

Seriously, how the fuck are these your top choices from the entirety of the last 8/9 years?

Tatami Galaxy WAS good.

How can you be this contrarian?

You can't just attach "reddit" to something without context and assume you make a good point.

>>157940187
(You)
>>
>>157934721
Not OP but I don't think that's an accurate assessment, anon. I personally find that I can't find a good show anymore. It used to be the case where each season had at least 1 decent show.

But now you'd be LUCKY to find 1 decent show to watch per year (not season mind you).

The quality has gone down such that even the shows that have potential drop the ball.

I kind of agree but Akira and Cowboy Bebop are still overrated as fuck
>>
>>157942807
there's all kinds of well animated action shows.
just people are hipsters and refuse to watch any that are still popular in whatever country/internet community they live in, so he'd reject modern stuff anyways
especially if they want ones as edgy as akira
>>
>>157932479
Atleast we have faithful adaptations. Akira anime is trash compared to manga

>For every good anime nowadays, there are 50 pieces of shit disguised as "animation."

Every type of media is like this.
>>
The reason why you think like that is because you watched all the best old stuff from some recommendation list, and you watched like what? 10 to 30 different animated movies or shows out of 50 000 generic or bad ones.
Nowadays you watch recent shit without trying to find that one hidden gem just like your precious anime recommendation list was back in the day.
