Holly shit. All anime last season, and now this season, are mediocre at best. Even pic relation was more interesting during it's long ass "will they, won't they" arc.
Tell me /a/nons, is anime dead? Are the glory days of anime gone? Will every season be full of generic crap and shit tier humor?

Basically yes.
It's over. Fortunately I have a considerable backlog in pre 2006 anime before the bug eyes and moeshit attacked. I only watch something if the threads are good or is very well recieved here. For example Rakugo. It really was a great anime and a bit of a fresh air.

are you new?

most new anime you see are AIRED LATE NITE in japan.
so it's only natural that japs prefer to watch shows that are light & comfy right before going to sleep.

proof? I was in kyoto 2 weeks ago and tokyo for 1 week. Most jap station in the evening only air sports (baseball), variety shows and then news. There is simply no room for anime (outside doraemon, pokemon and yugioh demographics) in normal waking hours. Japanese mainstream TV is shit, so watching anime on TV that's not doraemon, pokemon and yugioh offers a fresh sigh of relief.

and how shit anime is getting.
But nothing's changed. It's the same stuff over and over again. Do you understand that the studios that make the shows you like still exist but have never made stuff you like every single season?

I kill ya wit wan panch xD
good

Ghost in the shell and Wolf's Rain were late night shows too. It's got nothing to do with it. It's about the people got more stupid over the years. They produce moeshit because it's selling well because
muh healing animu is cute
These cancerous faggots ruined everything.

I never mentioned studios. A world class chef could make a cake, but if it taste like shit, it taste like shit. What I just said was an analogy, just in case you didn't get it.

The studios might exist, but quality is going down and the same shit is getting copy and pasted every season.

nope
anime is alive and well

if anime is dead

there would be no late nite anime in japanese tv
no anime in japanese theaters
no anime merchandise all over tokyo and its mecca in akihabara

if you don't like anime, read manga or LNs. if you can't into reading then it's your fault.

I don't think you understand my statement. If your views on how quality a show is based on the sales of merchandise and things outside the show itself, then I'm sure you think the mascot shorts are masterpieces and vocaloids should win grammys.

Every season, the more and more moe anime gets released with the same formula repeated. Every season, it's too easy to guess what big reveal will happen in action/adventure. The tropes are too obvious and every character gets copy pasted from anime to anime.

Anime is dead. But Sup Forums just loves the fuzzy feeling of SoL too much to see it.

Jackson Sanders

It's always been like this. The main difference between right now and a decade ago is that now they adapt LNs and back then they adapted VNs. But most of that covers shows you wouldn't and don't like so you probably haven't noticed.

it''s your loss

japan animators can't into HBO style approach where everything in it has to be grimdark and a lot of killing because there's no market in it.
inb4 muh international market
most anime studio who churn out late nite anime need only concern about the japanese domestic market.

if I were you just take a break from watching anime and read manga and/or LN.

gamergate started because games journo elitists attacked the consumers for liking the things that's "problematic" and tried to shame them into submission with SJW tactics. This is no different than what OP is doing here.

japan is immune from gamergate style incidents because "if you have nothing good to say, just don't" is what is normal there, and let the market (sales figures, revenues, profits) speak for the product itself.

We had Rakugo and Konosuba last season. This season doesn't have any notable stand-outs, but there are still some solid shows around.

1. I expressed my discontent with the current state of the anime industry, not it's consumers
2. I ended my post with questions to open discussion from all sides, as biased as I may be
3. I'm not a nip so I don't feel like I have to hide my opinions and follow the masses

Trying to compare me to some SJW butthurts doesn't take away from my point that anime is starting to become copy and pasted every season that passes.

And it's okay. It spoke for Rakugo too. It will have a sequel and It's not SoL. They could produce more quality anime that actually have a plot, but instead they just produce more sol because it's the safer option, they just won't take the risk, because basically the audience take every single shit with cute girls, no matter how it's produced. And that brings us to the problem with the audience, and it's not that they like Sliece of life anime, it's that it became so dominant that stuidos rarely produce anythings else. Winter season was a rare breed, we got a few solid shows but overall the selling wasn't outstanding and that is a huge problem.

Because you keep on thinkng sales and Japanese culture dictates if the statement "Anime is dead" is valid or not.

If you really want me to spell it for you. The statement is supposed to express how new anime is getting less creative and rehashing old things. Taking less risk to explore new things, or older things long tried in the past, and just copy pasting the same formula every season. This, in a sense, stagnates anime, which eventually will lead to a collapse, essentially "killing" anime.

Now, I can ignore anime, which I have been doing for the past year, only watching One Punch since last summer season. But that doesn't mean I can't express my discontent with how shit anime is now, compared to even 4 years ago.

You can't judge anything while all you do is watch the same thing every season.

No, you just caught up to your shit taste and stopped enjoying anime. I suggest leaving this board and picking up another hobby.

anime last season, and now this season, are mediocre at best.

A lot of anime has small budgets so they are limited in what story they can tell before the story is compromised in order to sell licenses, promote merchandise sales, and support ongoing sales compaigns. Thus, the real audience of the anime show is not the individual audience member. The real audience are the production committee members. Of course, they and the studio both know the show still needs to have some minimal entertainment value. But to the production committee, the anime is a failure if it doesn't result in positive net gain over opportunity costs.

If anime returned to those days where video sales provided a bigger percentage share of the profits for a show as compared to merchandise sales, then the story premise and plotting would be better. However, video sales declined, so almost all anime became "infomercials" to support product sales.

They only air late at night because air-time is expensive, and anime studios don't have big budgets.

Even in Japan, the kind of anime we watch is extremely niche, and normalfags there have never heard of 95% of the stuff we watch

spend money making some cartoons
spend money paying for the time to broadcast them too
this is what retards actually believe

It's the studio who gets paid by the channel because they want to broadcast their anime, not the studio paying the channel. Then they recover their inversion with commercials if the anime gets enough audience. You're a fucking retard and clearly don't know how tv works.
