Anime fucking sucks these days.

When's time last time we had a real great story of hero's journey, with the real stakes and epic conflict escalation?

>real stakes
These are things you associate with when you first got into anime.

Hunter x Hunter ended in 2014 and it was miles better than Gurren Shit you fucking pleb

>The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.

Anime as a whole was never as good as you thought it was.

What anime is it youre referring to when you make these requests? Hopefully not the one you used a picture of.

Why would you want to watch self-insert garbage like Gurren Lagann?

Don't watch bad shows.

TTGL was mediocre and it being idolized just goes to show how many were under 16 when it aired.

Your opinion is mediocre and you thinking it was worth posting just goes to show that you're under 16.

Because it was a lot better back in the days, right? Don't make me laugh. Just take a look at the picture you've posted.
>>

Stop watching bad shows
>>
>>161079012
Name 5 anime released in the past 2 years that are better than TTGL. I'll be waiting.
>>
>>161079166
Uchouten, Tsuki ga Kirei, Rakugo, 3gatsu, Fafner Exodus, Flip Flappers. Its not like TTGL was particularly good anyway. There are plenty of shows that came after that far surpass it. Limiting it to the last 2 years is pretty fucking retarded and doesnt really help proving your point.

Fuck off, /v/.

TTGL is just discount DBZ with added shonen. Take out the training and actually working for your goals of DBZ and replace it with MUH FRIENDSHIP POWER, make the power scaling go even more apeshit than DBZ to make up for the lack of tension, and wrap it all up in hamfisted, in-your-face "MANLY" so that the 14 year old kids without a father figure can imprint it onto the on-screen characters. There you go, you got TTGL.

>b-but there was no friendship power
Just because it's called "will to achieve" or whatever the fuck doesn't mean squat, it's still derived from the desire to help or protect their friends. Most of all, it's still given through nothing: while Goku trained day and night for weeks and almost died several times (sometimes just straight up died) to be able to beat the villain, in TTGL a monologue and wishing to win really really hard is enough to overcome anything.

Modern shonen almost always try to ape DBZ but they completely miss this part.
>>
>Anime fucking sucks nowadays
Can we stop this shit already? People have been saying that ever since the 90's, always for different reasons, always giving arbitrary arguments to justify their own nostalgia goggles. If you don't like anime nowadays, why do you keep watching it? There's like a bunch of things you can do instead.
>>
>>161080029
>DBZ
Do you mean that anime where the powers have no dynamic, characters spend more time training and looking at each other than fighting, villains are generic bad guys wanting to blow everything up, characters motivations begin and end with ''being strong'' and also where tension doesn't exist because characters can always be revived after dying?

TTGL is overrated, but at least it gets basic shit writing shit better than DBZ.

Why dont you stop watching anime and read Mushoku Tensei

Sounds like a great self insert for children and manchildren.
>>
>>161075136
It's about character interactions, not conflict.
All conflict you see in media is an illusion, due to the formulaic nature of storytelling.
>>
>>161082112
That's a coming-of-age story. But I should know better than to expect /a/ shitposters who have nothing better to do than to put down stuff just because it's popular to understand even the basic concepts of literature.
>>
>>161082627
You can give the MC of a coming-of-age story a personality. TTGL didn't.
>>
TTGL was one of my favourites, but you're wrong that "it sucks these days", watch more anime and not just the fotm meme shit.

He's not the guy sharing facebook memes.

>real stakes
The japanese are beta cucks that are scared to upset their audiences. Either that or the writers are often just shallow. Sometimes good stuff happens though.
>>
>>161082858
The only reason you ever had the impression that it was like was because of the live watch threads for the final EP.
>>
>>161083278
Besides it literally being in 70% of 3x3's?
>>
>>161083404
3x3s are usually 1 of 2 things: the user desperately trying to appear to have superior taste or him trying to fit in desperately. TTGL is added becuase of the latter. That however neither means that they think its insanely good, nor does leaving it out mean that they hate it. Just becuase people say its overrated in this thread doesnt mean its hated, but thats generally a problem with this board. If you criticise something its interpreted as hatred. The show you criticise can be your absolute favourite but talking badly about just a single aspect of it will make people jump you. Its utterly retarded. When a person seriously implies that his favourite work leaves no room for criticism, you know that youre talking to someone who is too dumb to bother with.
>>
>>161075136
Read the Iliad.
>>
>>161083631
That would be fair if there was criticism beyond the level of "its shit".

Gurren Lagann was shit after the Beastman War. Puny minded children are the only ones impressed by robots bigger than the galaxy and a shitty story

You're better off dropping it now.

Everything is CGDCT, SoL, Comedy, RomCom, and stupid ass idol/moe bullshit.
While I can dig some SoL, Comedy, and RomCom, CGDCT and moe shit are idiotic.

pretty much everything is boring ass SoLs that cater to 20 year old kids that think they're watching Kino. Top kek.

>muh dialog and characters


my god, kys faggots. Boku no Hero is a decent shounen, but that's about it really. Shounen guys should just stick to DB Super and forget about meme seasonal garbage.

You're right. Its just fap driven mostly with doujinshi.

I'm not gonna argue that people misuse the phrase all the time but if SoL shows aren't driven by characters then what are they driven by? Certainly not the plot!
>>
>>161075136
ttgl is really good , but overrated. and last battle was boring
>>
>>161090417
I think he may be alluding to "situations" as plot driven. It's a valid point, but CGDCT aren't really gag comedies like Nichijou.
>>
>>161090417
It's not driven by anything. It is nothing, so calling it "character driven" is a criminal misuse of the term. At least learn eat the term means before trying to use it to defend shit.
>>
>>161075136
Then watch Naruto and Boruto save the world over and over again. Fucking manchild

This thread really shows how far gone /a/ is now. So many /v/ermin here and nobody calling them on their obvious shit taste and having seen less than 100 anime, probably less than 20.
>>
>>161080953
>If you don't like anime nowadays, why do you keep watching it?
He doesn't. People who say this act like they know a lot about anime but they usually haven't watched anything from the last 10 years at least. They are appallingly ignorant.

I've seen probably 1000+ anime, and most of them are shit, especially recently.

Nah I agree with him, TTGL is a fairly boring show.
