Where the FUCK is my Eureka 7! I do NOT usually get angry about lists like this, but how the tumbling fuck did s-CRY-ed make this while Eureka 7 did not. There IS no good reason.

    @Satonaka I don’t have much of a Gundam background, which may or may not be a good thing in terms of comparison. I only saw Wing all the way through long ago, and that set me back a couple years because the one who ordered me to watch it was a fangirl who then insisted that every male character I ever found cool was gay for another male character in their series. That may be why I actually am apprehensive to watch any Gundam series now. It took two years for me to re-rationalize that …

    Actually, you’re right. I was in fact rather annoyed at this list until your last statement. Somehow that gratefully lifted this list back into ludicrous levels, so I’m no longer annoyed. Thanks a bunch.

    Are you seriously encompassing the entirety of that anime in that juvinile, completely ludicrous and utterly useless description? Is that how you judge the entirety of a series? You look at it, define it as some childish bastardization of its base premise, and then judge on that alone? Do you think that somehow makes you special or intelligent? Well, I can see why, I mean the same can be done for you as a human being just as easily: You were born, you’re a moron, you’re going to die a moron. I …

    All very true. Ergo Proxy is actually similar in feel to Eureka, just on an opposing spectrum. Can’t really describe it better than that. I will admit that Eureka 7 has maintained the spot as my all-time favorite anime and therefore surpasses any of those in my mind as deserving a place, but that’s personal preference. It managed to do many, many things that are usually considered cliche in ways that I haven’t seen before or since, and that is unbelievably hard to pull off when they intertwine. …

    You obviously haven’t truly watched it then. Got it.

    @ Anon 21:37 The irony of your statements is they do not grow with the times either. You make valid points, but valid points from about 10 years ago. I already recognized and commented that piracy is by and large the reason for the anime industry’s growth by 2005, however afterwards, the profit-margin and growth to ratio of lost sales hit its zenith and no longer could sustain itself. Bringing the anime over has multiple issues, namely the old-school Japanese thought, which of course is …

    @ Anon 12:53 Well put, but you also do not consider that the internet was not widespread then. I am old enough to have done all you are talking about. As well as recording movies and shows off the TV on VHS. The ‘sharing’ you are referring to amongst a group of buddies has become a world-wide exchange that has no control whatsoever. You say the industry changed, and it changed to do its best to survive the onslaught of dwindling profits and sales for the new market that had the uncontrollable …

    Anon 9:46′s complete lack of understanding of how much they have to work with almost directly leads to anon 10:55′s reasoning, and these ideas are the reasons why animation studios often can’t grow without ‘miracle’ shows like Bakemonogatari leading to sales almost despite everyone’s expectations. One would hope that Trigger is being watched closely to see what happens when you come out of the gate with quality like the old 90s Disney cartoons. Then again, one also has to hope that being a …

    People who say ‘why didn’t he just quit’ have no idea what it is like to be an artist in an industry that is so competitive that you fear losing your job to one with slightly less skill but slightly faster, and never have the chance to go elsewhere. There are not enough anime studios for animators to just jump jobs. Japanese culture tends to lean toward overworking, but it’s because of reputations being demolished for going against the group more than anything. Depression puts you in a corner …

    According to the industry professionals, DVDs are still the most profitable avenue, followed by merchandising. Streaming only holds up so far, there isn’t much of a way to make it too profitable yet as anime fans only pay a smaller monthly fee for the license, and if it got too high, fewer would pay it because anime fans of the modern age are by and large too young to afford it in their demographic, in some cases too cheap to think it’s worth their money even if they love it, or growing up …
