Asher Harris

Unable to confess, he is gifted with by a deus ex machina with the girl's phone number. Never minding the strange area code, he immediately calls her, and is overjoyed to find out that she has a crush on him as well.

But, the next day, when he recounts the previous day's confessions to the girl, she only looks at him with a perplexed expression. After some investigation, he finds out that the girl he called is not the same girl he fell in love with. In fact, she doesn't exist in this universe at all. She is the girl's alternate universe counterpart, who has fallen in love with the MC's own AU self, who too is blissfully unaware of her crush.

Hijinks ensue as the two strike up a deal to give each other their darkest, most private secrets in order to equip the other with the weapons they need to conquer the heart of their other selves. While the two chase their respective loved ones, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other instead and question the NATURE of LOVE.

if you wanna save anime stop watching shows just because of the hot girl
she's just a cartoon and you can get your rocks off to better things more tailored to your own liking
there's been an influx of shit shows which are only good because of the well-endowed girl doing suggestive things
studios aren't even trying to make good things because they know most otaku fags will watch it anyways if there is a no-depth girl doing fun things
if this is what most people want then let it happen, fine by me. but if you want to "save" anime then this is the only path

This is dumb. XEBEC has almost never made a good ecchi, and almost never made a bad sci-fi show. Madhouse has done like one remake this decade. And Toei has pretty much no relation t saving the industry, they run off of the children's market, which is a completely different thing.

No, it was the subsequnt occupation and the reconstruction of Japanese socity into something actually functional that caused anime. The nukes only caused that by preventing any further (much more destructive) firebombing, or the war of anniliation that an invasion would have been (a 'prepared' force of five million soldiers of varying quality and more than thirty of civilian milita. Out of a population of seventy million).

It's getting better and better lately. Finally recovering from moe blob hell. SAO's legacy is the only good thing about the show, ushering in a bunch of game themed/centered shows, and since most people who watch anime also play games it's a good fit. Comedy has finally evolved past the point where
AHAHAHA HE SCARED OF BOOBS

SAO's legacy is the only good thing about the show, ushering in a bunch of game themed/centered shows, and since most people who watch anime also play games it's a good fit.

You've lost your mind. Video game writing is the absolute nadir of storytelling, if there's one thing in the world anime can't learn from, it's games.

I would fix anime by banning both light novels and light novel adaptations.

Anthony Allen
Anthony Allen

I don't really know film, I figured television killed it or something.

Well it's a magic chance so I can do whatever I want, yeah? And fetish porn will get made but so will everything else, that's the fun of it. Basically letting the artist create art for its own sake as opposed to commercial ends, while maintaining financial compensation.

Henry Robinson

I'm not saying it has to be written like a movie. I just like stuff like boob ribbon goddess and explosion loli. Themes user. Shit's easy to understand and recognizable at a glance, and it's fun. It'll get tired pretty soon but for now I enjoy it.

Eh, the possibility exists to tell a good story in the vidya gaem setting - it usually doesn't happen, but the idea of dramatic tension and complex characters isn't precluded by the core of the story.

The way I see it, SAO did three things well. First of all, it offered a lot of fleeting glimpses of what could have been, if it wasn't cancerous as shit. Second, it launched a thousand imitators and formed the genre. Last, it did really well and illustrated that the best way to make a successful story in the genre was to make it terrible.

So, the possibility exists. Moeblob, however, is to dependent on the superficial and trivial to coexist with strong storytelling.

radiation causes anime in all those countries as well
russia deploys anti-anime forces to affected countries to prevent anime from invading and overthrowing Putin
forces all anime into reeducation camps
all anime from then on is just rehashes of First Squad
Does that sound like saving anime to you?

Brody Perry
Brody Perry

Bigger budgets and longer timeframes.
Longer-term investment.

Yeah, this. As long as you've got the outcome of one season directly effecting the next one, you can't really aim for anything other than quick twelve-episode payoffs, which sort of discourages things like worldbuilding and character development. It also encourages cookie cutter stories - currently, trapped in a vidya game, battle academy, and CanKancer.

That said, I'm not sure the current studios have the working capital for that risk - which isn't a problem here.

Greater reliance on storyboarding and good direction as a means of communicating a story.

Out of curiosity, what is the current status quo?

I'm not sure how CGDCT isn't an otaku fetish.

Not that guy, but cuteness is entertaining, and something the nips do extremely well.

Ryder Perry

Make an anime that uses the EXACT SAME PREMISE as SAO, with just 2 cours, that functions as an actual mmorpg, and is still nice and edgy.

Why, you ask? So that all these studios will stop dancing around the issue with their constant attempts to vaguely do 'SAO but better'.

Then we can all move on and find another original premise to ruin instead.

Juan James
Juan James

And what if that becomes a success?
That'll just encourage even more imitations!

Nathaniel Cox
Nathaniel Cox

And what if that becomes a success?

I suspect that what really encouraging these imitations is the knowledge that there's a great story still hidden away in the exact premise of SAO, but everyone is too chicken-shit to straight-up copy the premise.

William Howard

We vaguely insult the audience (specifically, the part of it that buys BDs) offhandedly and frequently. That way, we can have an objectively good show that still bombs. Ideal, it has mainstream popularity but still ends in the red.

Agree on most of this but the CGDCT point. Otaku already eat it up now, and in the coming years it will be seen as nothing more than a huge fad in the 00s and new tens. Kind of like how mecha was for a while.

The old demon king was finally defeated long ago. Most people assuming that he was destroyed or banished from the world, never to be seen again. The truth of the matter is that he merely retired after his last crushing defeat, deciding to leave the world conquest thing to his personally manufactured successor.

To this end he's compiled all of the knowledge he's accrued from his experience and countless defeats into a sort of genre savvy villain's guide, which he's passed onto his successor as part of her training regimen which also includes the study of heroic tales and legends.

As part of her training, his apprentice must use everything she's learned and infiltrate a party of heroes, discover and master the secrets of their asspull powers, and eventually either destroy them from within or turn them to her cause. Her master has come out of retirement as demon king just to ensure these heroes will appear, and her final test is to defeat him.

No more SOL shit, at all. It's cancer, and boring at that.

School shit is banned unless the show takes place almost entirely outside the school and doesn't revolve around "normal" school experiences.

Any and all "Average Jap MC is reincarnated to fantasy world" works are hereby banned. This includes battle harems of all flavors as a prerequisite.

No beta, self insert, faggot, "average totally normal" MCs allowed UNLESS they have a reason to be such lame sad sacks, such as Shinji from NGE.

No more "cute girls in scenario that cute girls don't belong" (i.e. Haifuri, GuP, Sora no Woto, Upotte, etc.) unless it's actual warfare, the girls are actually trained soldiers, and people, including cute girls, die horrible war deaths. If you don't want this then stop cramming cute girls into war scenarios you fucks.

Kyoani and Shaft is dissolved as companies and their employees and assets are split among decent anime studios.

More well funded original works, rather than shitty LN/manga adaptations or shit made to appeal to the lowest common denominator just to guarantee success. Give creators more leeway to make different, exciting, or pleasing shows without worrying about printing money or selling merch.

Quality over quantity. One high budget, long term production show beats out a low budget, shitty adaptation or SOL/school/harem/ecchi shit show any day. Also, if you start a story finish it and finish it with finality. No more of this one season hoping for a second season open ended shit. Just make your story as is.

No all female casts. All male casts have the potential to be decent, but all female casts are always objectively horrible and more worried about pandering than making a decent show.

At least ideally. Although it's not exactly a safe ideally money-wise

Ryder Rogers

You mean make it credible as a storytelling platform, r? Because no matter what you do with it, it may not be.

You could get rid of all of the tripe shows, make killer studios and have them produce some fine anime shows or movies, but in the end it's still on a bit of a ghetto. As long as people think it's kiddie stuff or fapbait it won't be credible and people will keep making shit because that's what they think sells to children or otakus.

And the stuff about changing trends in writing is kind of shit, too. You can't stop people from making trends, and you can't control how people write the stuff. We already know certain genres and characters come and go through the decades.

And what criteria would you even base "saving" The genre on? How would you get people who can write/animate/direct with higher quality? Would you only have a couple of really good people do anime? Because that sounds like a shit idea, too. Not like they would burn out after a while or anything.

Ang isang lalaki ay nabighani sa isang babae.

Dahil sa hindi niyang magawang aminin ang kanyang damdamin, ipinagbahala niya sa panginoong maykapal ang lahat. Dahil dito, nakuha niya dahil sa mirakulo ang numero ng telepono ng babae. Agad-agad niyang tinawagan ang kanyang pinakamahal gamit ang kakaibang numero. Lubos na lang ang pasasalamat niya ng malaman niya na mahal din siya ng kanyang bagong sinta.

Ngunit kinabukasan, nung kinausap niya yung kanyang di umano na kasintahan tungkol sa mga nangyari, tinitigan lang siya nung binibini na parang nasiraan na siya ng bait. Pagkatapos ng kanyang pagsisiyasat, nalaman niya ang katotohanan. Ang babae na tinawagan niya ay hindi ang parehong babae na nahulog ang damdamin para sa kanya.

Sa katunayan, siya ay babae na nanggaling sa kakambal na daigdig: Pareho ngunit naiiba. Siya ay ang katapat ng babaeng pinakamamahal niya sa ibang mundo na nahulog din ang damdamin para sa kanyang pangalawang sarili na hindi rin alam ang tunay na damdamin ng babae.

Kung ano-ano ang nangyari nang nagkasunduan ang dalawa na ibigay ang kanilang pinakamadilim at pinakapersonal na lihim upang magbigay ng kasangkapan at mga armas na kailangan nila upang masakop ang mga puso ng kanilang mga pangalawang sarili. Habang ang dalaway ay hinahabol ang kani-kanilang mga mahal sa buhay, maraming pagsubok ang umusbong nang sila mismo sa halip ang nagkaibigan. Dito nila malalaman ang LIKAS na PAGMAMAHAL.

Basically, put a bit of American animation work standards and QA into Japanese animation.

Don't get me wrong, right now cartoons are in a rut worse than anime where everything looks the same because it's all made by CalArts students that really set their sights low and never try to challenge themselves in terms of animation. But the industry does some things right, like overall way better working conditions, more reliance on TV ratings (hence encouraging good writing, directing, storyboarding, visuals etc) and less reliance on merchandising (ironic considering saturday morning cartoons used to be glorified commercials for toys), budgets are generous, animation is really fluid, animators are given a lot more time to actually animate and things at least attempt to be engaging to people besides otaku manchildren.

Basically anime needs to be weened off of merchandising and try to figure out how to make their money by being engaging to a wider audience. Combine Western goals with Japan's willingness to experiment with animation instead of just slavish only use 3/4ths perspective. Less LN/VN adaptions made to sell merchandise of the girls to an obsessed minority of viewers, more strongly written and directed original works that try to engage a broad audience. And let's not talk about the PPG reboot.

Jason Jackson

we want to appeal to a broader audience
Almost always never works. Its better to have a target audience that will enjoy your work rather than trying to reach out to an audience that most probably won't give back.

Lincoln Hughes

It's definitely risky but the payoff is immense if it works. And anime occassionally does do that, I'm not a fan of either work but DN and AoT reached a huge international audience by taking a risk and trying to deliver something higher-budget with wide appeal.

So it's really just a matter of safe money small returns vs big risk big returns. The safe option is that anime stays in its rut of light novel harem adaptions that's slowly sinking its way into grindy p2w cellphone game tie-ins.
