    Default For those who pick the QUALITY over trend in anime...

    I'm a bit critical about anime choice. I feel like Hetalia has lost its edge because of how overrated it is. I am hardcore about my choice in anime (I'm not going to express how I don't like anime you recommend by the way, that's soo inconsiderate.). Anyway, I am writing for the soul purpose that I find some more opinionated people in the field of anime. Where there are arguments about selection, there are new interests and views.

    Friend me, and learn much friends!

    @Gjallarhorn is a high class man with equally high class tastes. Or so I've observed.

    He knows a ton more about anime than I do, but everything he's said that I know something about, I've totally agreed with.

    Personally, I'm not that picky about anime; I really haven't found that I hate a particular genre, it's really just the particular show.

    Default Re: For those who pick the QUALITY over trend in anime...

    I'm extremely opinionated with regard to what anime I watch and like, and I feel that the anime industry has gone to crap over the last 6-7 years. Thoughtful, interesting storytelling has been put aside for ero, moe, and character drama, and each anime series is just another supply of moe "slice of life", school-fantasy, or ero-anime.

    You have the standard cute-objectified-little-girls-doing-nothing. Shows like K-ON, Manabi Strait, Lucky Star, etc. There's no purpose to anime like these other than for otaku to oogle at - there's no thought, no development of plot, or no development of character. It's hollow and shameless, and despite this it had managed to sell and work its way into most series that are put out today.

    Then you have the school-fantasy. It's set up as regular school kids get fantasy element, or kids in some fantasy-filled world end up going to school. Guilty Crown, Highschool DxD, Freezing, most of Code Geass, Blood-C, Synchroblade, etc. In each and every show like this, the fantasy element simply ends up as a shtick, and the series progresses as a standard-affair character drama/sit-com, occasionally remembering its theme and throwing in magic powers, a robot, an alien, or something else every couple of episodes to make it seem like the produces actually give half a damn. It's as though they come up with a high fantasy idea, but decide to stick to the school setting to be more "relatable" and more pandering to a nostalgic audience, thereby limiting their ability actually tell a serious story and making it part of the bland, amorphous blob that is school-fantasy anime. And of course, they add in a bunch of cute girls to show at low angles and making cute faces and the obligatory and often unnecessary beach episode because moe is a cancer that sells. The main character is always some nitwit guy who over the course of the show becomes less of a nitwit, and everyone around him treats him like he's special from the start despite the fact that he's completely ordinary - I'm not sure if there's a term for a male Mary Sue character, but there's a hundred-and-one examples of it in these series.

    And then there's heaps of ero-anime, which just dump fanservice on the viewer without actually becoming pornographic. Queen's Blade, Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai, Hagure Yuusha no Estetica, Yosuga no Sora, etc. It's all simply smut. I don't have a problem with it being made, but that such a large portion portion of modern anime is made to this standard - or lack there of - is pathetic.

    Innovation and provocative thought in anime are as good as dead. High fantasy? True sci-fi? Historical series? Thoughtful drama? Nowhere in sight. And worse is that these generic, half-effort shows are eaten up by the modern anime fandom and praised as being the greatest there is and ever has been by people who haven't seen any anime from before 2000 except for what [Adult Swim] has shown them.

    So what do we have left the rely on? The two-or-three truly good shows each year, or that Ghibli might make a good movie once every 5 years, or that every 5 years GAINAX will do something crazy and have it work better than expected?

    Every one in a while I try to add more into this, but it is very much incomplete.

    I agree that a lot of anime is crap. I test things out tho so I can get a feel of what I'm watching before I give it the boot. But one anime I found, Mirai Nikki, was a surprisingly good anime. One of the best of 2012 for sure.

    I agree that a lot of anime is crap.
    That's the thing- when people ask me in real life "Do you like anime," I don't reeeeally know what to tell them. Like....do you like food? Sure...some is amazing and some is god-awful. Weird analogy but not far off from the point I try to make.

    Expertly added opinions, that's what I was waiting for. Someone who knows the true heart of anime. I thank you Gjallarhorn.
    Anime in the modern world has gained the stereotype that it is simply for the purpose of portraying a harem of shameless women who wouldn't mind if they slipped a nip *Chucklle*. I definitely agree. But not only the visual is important in my opinion. The emotions that are put into are very important as well. Just as regular television is, having people crying and getting upset is rather annoying. On the other extreme, having too little drama is like listening to robots the entire show. Spice and Wolf is one of my favorites, because the emotional aspect is so well executed. When Holo got upset, the atmosphere really pulled I, the viewer, in with the plot. That is one of the best examples I could think to describe it.

    I'm not the best for that topic because actually I don't have high expectations when I watch a anime (it's just for fun after all). But I have a friend who is really demanding with anime. Do you know baccano? I've recommanded it to him and he like it so I hope that it'll be the same for you.

    ---------- Post added at 09:41 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:31 AM ----------

    I must add something, I like quality but I don't really seach it in anime because:
    -When I'm searching for quality, I read seinen manga like Ikigami or until death do us part ^^ ( if you read manga I've plenty of things that can interest you)
    -I'm a otaku siscon and lolicon so I can enjoy the standard of low quality anime xD

    ---------- Post added at 09:50 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:41 AM ----------

    Yes and for the Crap of the 6-7 last years... We can explain that with the computer assisting draw/animation. Now the production cost are low and a (sad) consequence is that the global quality of anime is lower than before. Like @Gjallarhorn says anime industry make a lot of anime and it's almost always the three most popular gender. But if we want to be optimistic, there is more anime than before and there is a higher probability to find a good anime ^^.

    Truthfully, I am a bit of a sucker for imoutos, lolitas, and odd sorts such as bishounen [pretty-boys]. What I expect from anime is that the artist didn't just pencil it so it'd save time. Also that it doesn't lose my interest along the plot. Anime is like looking at the world from a different view, so I like to see all kinds of situations that one may not experience during their lifetime. For example, going to school at a highly prestigious academy with rich folk. I'm not always up-tight on anime, but rather like in the way you go to the movies and have have expectations that the movie isn't terrible because you spent a total of 30$, because your girlfriend was currently present. *pant* What a long metaphor.

    ---------- Post added at 03:48 AM ---------- Previous post was at 03:41 AM ----------

    And on an unrelated note, 30 US dollars is around 24 euros. In regards to Serephin. *wink*
