I want to make it clear I mean only the fan-boy-dom and not the whole fandom :P

There's a lot of shitty anime out there.

No one would say Evangelion was a bad series though, and that's barely even the tip of the iceberg.
Once one watched through a few 90's classics it remans very little, even non-mainstream that does not always have an English translation. One should be a trve anime fan who learnt Japanese in order to unearth anything decent among such a load. I'm amazed how little plot it there in the genre that puts a plot over drawing quality.
To add insult to an injury, a few topics are either taboo in Japanese society or completely unexplored for other reasons. Or explored, but there's not a single title where it was done seriously, be it anime, manga or visual novel.

Guess it's all about target audience and economics.

While goku and naruto are building up an attack in 23 episodes without anything else happening, he had already wasted countless robots to the point of being covered from head to feets of oil



This just to say I'm not impressed with their pointless crap :razz:

I use to watch Samurai Jack way back in the 00's with my Son when he was Young. Around the time this Bloodlines first come out. It could've been before to be fair.

I don't know, I'm not the biggest anime fan out there but it's sort of low-hanging fruit to go after the genre. Specially when videogames, movies and even series suffer from similar issues.

Almost every genre has these problems, still anime has them to far greater extent. The ratio of decent anime to time suckers. Comparable absolute value of the first, orders of magnitude higher total amount.
Say, there's 1000 works in some symbolic genre, 9 of them are of any good.
In symbolic anime, that will be 100000 works, and again, 9 of them are good.
To take it farther, even decent titles mostly contain usual idealized everyday Japanese life fillers and such.

It's definitely harder and more time-consuming to find anything of interest among anime than movies and videogames. Another problem, the audience is used to it and considers normal, so reviews, recommendations and questions are useless. Use the force Luke.

To be fair, I have started this thread after an unsuccessful attempt to find an anime to watch, which resulted in five-six hours of wasted time.

Deicide, One Anime that caught my eye quite a long time ago that I haven't watched beyond the first episode was called Wolf's Rain. I had forgot all about it until today.

It could be worth a nosey if you haven't had a look at it yet. Dub trailer for ease.

Remember that one was on that animuh channel way back when I still inhabited my old younger haunts!

It was kinda mopey emoey, apparently wolves weren't cool so they were represented by choker wearing angsty teens with best selling AliExpress fashion sets who somehow were the critters.
And there was an old feller with a mustache and a dog that hunted them because they ate his chickens before he could sell them to the Gundam army or something...

Don't take my word for much value, mate!
I did laugh my ass off at the first few issues/toons of Ranma 1/2 and kind of liked Trigun after all!

And so opinions divided. No point in watching trailers - Code Geass seemed to be decent until the second episode, for example. Thanks dudes, it seems there's only one way to find out...

I watched Kabaneri of the iron fortress up to episode 5 so far a few weeks back. It's kind of steampunk zombie type anime.
