1 Yeah my opinion lies within agreement that Anime became intolerable only when you find yourself associated with those into the mainstream animes. Naruto was one of them, but I've dealt with people who were overly obsessed with Inuyasha and Bleach included. Just boasting how in-depth and how much character development was involved making those animes. When really, you find out, most of it was filler. Episodes that played no relevancy to the current story or even putting up an interesting point to an arc. They barely have spent any time on character development. Everything is sudden and instantaneous with little to no explanation. How about characters that are there for certain fans to just go ga-ga over? They're just there as fanservice. I've seen Animes where it was good and they only had 23 episodes. Some, were shorter than 23. It'd be rare if you ever found an Anime over 100+ and still be great. Rarer if it's even consistent with itself. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on August 24, 2013, 3:50 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

3 When anime became a sick obsession with the weeaboos who will not shut the fuck up about the shows they like. If you mention good anime from the 70's to 80's they would be like Huh? I only watch Naruto. -- Submitted By: (Mr.Zimpy) on January 3, 2011, 4:32 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Travoltron- I would suggest you follow up with the website www.colonydrop.com It is dedicated to the anime era that you are speaking well of- and by the way- if you want some picks on some great new anime that isnt kid schlock, pervy or Moe crap, put a note up here and I'll give you some recommendations. Anime hasnt boned the fish, but alot of titles certainly have. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on October 31, 2010, 7:28 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 The reason I got into anime because during the Golden Age of anime (70s through early '90s), these cartoons were light-years ahead of the crap cartoons we Americans were getting at the time. Most American cartoons were formulaic, cheap, dumbed down, and boring as not to offend any busybody parents groups. Anime respected kids' intelligence and faced issues head-on instead of trying to shelter kids from reality. When an anime did make it to US shores, even in edited form, it was a godsend. In the early '90s the AKIRA boom brought a lot of more mature titles over to the US home video market. I loved how the Japanese pushed the animation format to new boundaries, the political incorrectness, and cultural differences. I think it all fell apart in the late '90s with the Pokemon boom. This show got so huge that everyone started to rip it off-- every new show for awhile was based on kids collecting animals or playing card games. The Japanese also got self conscious about internationalization and started dumbing down anime from the beginning for international audiences. Meanwhile American cartoons had gotten smarter and better while anime got worse. Now when you say "anime" to most Westerners they think of that kiddie schlock instead of greats like Yamato or Gundam. The recent moe trend I know little about, but it certainly isn't encouraging. It seems like every new anime title now is either some schlock based on a card or video game or something for perverted losers. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 31, 2010, 5:06 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 With the exception of a few good anime here and there, anime in general has become cliche ridden and unoriginal. I mostly blame otaku for this. They tend to like overhyped and cliche ridden anime and thus there are little to no original nime anymore. -- Submitted By: (Acobjum) on December 18, 2009, 2:56 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 The otaku have forced the industry to become so inbred that new material is more often than not very in-accessible to new fans and the mainstream. While there are still some great anime if you look the industry is on a downward trend. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on October 12, 2009, 4:00 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
