He looks like a cartoon character now.
>The worst thing about it is that the animators will be reluctant to change styles after this arc out of laziness.
The new movie has the old artstyle so that's not exactly implausible. Plus, SM was inspired by YW and given how YW's popularity is now in the toilet I wouldn't be surprised if Pokemon goes back to normal next season.

This. At least the girls in SM are fun and have fun fanbases. As attractive as Serena was, her fanbase was really bad, on par with the worst of Misty's.
Why didn't they just make a new protagonist for each region who just happened to look like and have a similar name to Ash instead of ignoring time?
They could have even done tie in episodes where the trainers from each region cross paths and fight once in a while instead of just having Ash be 10 years old for 19 years so he could be everywhere at once.
What's the point? It's not like it matters. You're supposed to eventually outgrow watching Sunday morning cartoons.
For examples of why that doesn't work, go look to Digimon and Yugioh. 20 years later, people know who Ash is. Can you say the same for the protagonists for the other two franchises?

Which ship is your favorite?

No brown is too brown if it's just palette swapping. Any brown is too brown if it's supposed to look like 3D coloreds. Prove me wrong.

>Japan's Fear
You mean the entire world's fear? The idea of investment stifles creativity because you want low risk and profitable returns.

Mold Breakers are basically the idiots who took a big scary risk and it turned out fine, even though other idiots do the same and fail.
If your mind perceives fetishism as some kind of pollutant strangle-holding the atmosphere you might want to check your upbringing.
There are always people willing to gamble on the idea of a big pay-day. That's how startups work. Only problem is that in media there's not really the same sort of disruption or profit potential. Even if you make the best anime or manga ever, it probably won't penetrate the market, and the average person will continue to shovel down whatever shit is put in front of their faces. In the end the market only works if the consumer base is invested in the quality of the end product, and sadly that just doesn't seem to be something that happens in entertainment. The people who actually care about quality are so small a base they aren't worth pandering to, and as for everyone else, well you can lead a pleb to kino but you can't make em enjoy it.

This, this, this.
>Fantasy or alternative universe setting
>militant or combat oriented protagonist faction built around fighting some antagonist
>Organization is literally modeled after the Japanese high school system with the same cultural and social norms occurring between "students" and "faculty".
>The only difference is instead of studying math and science, they're studying how to use magic/robots/monster hunting techniques

Or perhaps a more recent one
>Virtual Reality MMO setting series
>No effort into making the setting actually seem like a videogame
>If there is any effort or rules they fade eventually as characters just mold into what amounts to a fantasy setting
>The only reason it even uses an MMO setting is to allow the caste to be Japanese highschoolers.

Even though Shonen is written for high schoolers, is it really that hard to create relatable characters without blatantly shoving Japanese high school life into it?

When a series is successful and the author or editor is worried they won't have that kind of success again, so they drag it out for hundreds of chapters over years and years.

Doesn't satisfy the yuri audience because of the above and doesn't satisfy the het audience for going through typical yuri school angst.

At least the yaoi couple had a happy ending.

Yeah, thousands of people acting like a mediocre show is 10/10 isn't overrating.
A show with a small dedicated fanbase that sold like shit is the actual overrated thing here.

They talk about interesting stuff and rarely play a card game, and when they do it it only lasts 1 episode and is filled with more talking and flashbacks. I like it, who seriously keeps playing the physical card game? Just download Duel Links isntead and stop being a complete manchild

Pretty much the jobber. Revolver has a different dragon.
