Today I extend my thoughts on a comment I made previously in my "Best of Anime 2018" video about the lack of modern classic Anime, since non of you could agree on it in the comments section.

  • I think a lot of it is lack of conclusion from even the most well received anime in the last few years. Most animes lately are manga adaptions, greenlit for a season or two, which are still ongoing so this results in a lot them leaving us off with cliffhangers or mostly unresolved narratives. A personal example for me would also be Mob Psycho 100, I absolutely adore this show, but since it is an ongoing work and god only knows if we'll get another season, there is no closure at all. This wasn't as prevalent some decades ago, stuff like Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Eva, etc, you got the whole package to appreciate and reflect upon. This is has become increasingly rare in the current age of Anime.

  • I saw NGE last year for the first time, and thought to myself that these people praising it are blinded by nostalgia. It was ok, but not that much. As for Legend of the Galactic Heroes, I started watching it and now I cannot thank these old fags enough to not have let the anime community forget about this absolutely incredible show, which I am only 20 episodes in but seems like it will be going to become my favourite anime of all time.

  • Madoka Magica, Violet Evergarden, Made in Abyss are modern classics. But I do see your point. There is SO MUCH anime, but there is SO LITTLE that is of high quality.

  • I want to thank you. It was here where I heard of LOGH for the first time and it was one great experience watching it. I was watching it at the same time as Game of Thrones was approaching end and I was way more excited to see the ending of 20 year old series that truly has an ending with subverting expectation in comparison to GoTs forced and illogical decisions in story only made to shock people watching it in pubs. I hope that books will have better conclusion to the GoT story. It would be great if during our lifetimes we see another epic classic like Legends of the Galactic Heroes.

  • I would argue that Devil Man Crybaby is a modern classic. Damn that shit is top tier. But that could be due to the fact that it’s based off of a really old manga. There is a lot of great stuff out it’s so hard to choose 😭😩

  • This is stupid how could a anime be a classic... it had to be somne years gone to become a classic so how can you tell what the nowdays generation remember when they get older an think back to the good old times? only the time can tell us what is a classic anime an which one is not. The next thing anime has become more common i´t is mainstream now and the studios produce much mainstream. But with the impact on the society .... yeah its lacking much. So now my list what might become a classic. Katanagatari HunterXHunter Dororo Kimetsu no Yaiba/Demon Slayer Hero Academia Asobi Asobase Chios schoolroad ......and many many more i love them all im sure there is something coming what is worth to call a clasic.

    XJ9XJ918 วันที่ผ่านมา
    • @Orpheus if you think so... Time will tell us. Hunter X Hunter got good potential or maybe Vinland Saga it's a sensless discussion we will see in the future and might remember them.

      XJ9XJ914 วันที่ผ่านมา
    • Na, none of those is going to become a classic lol. Kimetsu no Yaiba, HunterXHunter, Hero academia are entry level shonen anime like DBZ, Naruto before them. They are always popular, with a few cool fight scenes but in the end they are always the same thing. People who grew up with them will always love them, but in 10 years there will be new popular shonen that will replace those. Dororo started great and I thought it would be something thought provoking with great art,... But it wasn't, it went downhill very quick. Asobi Asobase is truly a great anime and one of the best comedies of the past years. But regretfully, there weren't many people who were watching it... There are very, very few anime that are coming out today, that will stand the test of time. The overwhelming majority of anime is average at best, disappointing at worst. I haven't seen anything that truly stands above the others. A show that might become a classic would be something like Violet Evergarden, Madoka Magica, Made in Abyss.

  • i watched 80% of the classics in my childhood and most of them were dubbed and i didn't know what anime really was that time it was epic tbh and now i can rewatch them in japanese , i hope i live till i complete them all and feel the joy again also new animes are also great , i watch them when they finish airing so watching older anime or previous if i may say while waiting for new shows is a great experience for someone who started anime in 2014 like me

  • The lack of modern classic anime: -too formulaic and oversaturated for any genre that brings in money. -manga/light novel advertising actively aiming to *not* have a satisfying and impactful conclusion so you buy the source material. -fans that seem to actively hate on series' other people enjoyed, ensuring there is no consesus on what actually is and isn't quality, impactful anime.

  • Here are some strong contenders with some potential if they get developed correctly. Vinland Saga Made in Abyss Heroic Legend of Arslan Mahoutsukai no Yome Also, you forgot.. Monogatari is the most obvious modern classic we've got : P. You absolutely can't argue that it's not a modern classic ;D. I'd recommend it right alongside legend of the galactic heroes, cowboy bebop, code geass, ghost in the shell, trigun, and all of those others = ). A modern classic movie is definitely Your Name. Drifters would have definitely been ultra interesting if it hadn't gotten abandoned : (. Don't forget that we also got 3-gatsu no Lion, which competes with the likes of Aria. Saiki is easily going to be a comedy classic right up there with Lucky Star. We think there are no classics among modern anime because they are always few and far between. I've pointed out an easy 8, many of which are only from the last 3 years.

  • its ok all just turn to waifu/loli/isekai shit, but I truly find my self unable to finish one anime per season lately. every season I watch less and less from the list, by 3 episode 70% of the anime will be dropped and by 6 episodes 95% will be gone. turn out 1-2 anime per season will be able to go from start to finish. rest just too repetitive with literally the same shit with different face.

  • SAO feels like a classic became I think it reflects the Isekai genre perfectly to any non-anime hardcore fan, but gamer, like me :) Others I feel fell short of that.

  • made in abyss and promised neverland would be classics if they were shorter and more contained, sadly they both ended openly for more seasons to come out.

    Harry BlumHarry Blumหลายเดือนก่อน
    • Made in Abyss is a still ongoing series (LN wise), there currently is no end to it in any format, trying to contain the world is already difficult enough when you split it into 2+ seasons, trying to finish a complete story within a single season would really lower the quality of the world building by making it feel rushed...

  • FYI, the big problem is the distribution models now. Anime at the top end HAS gotten worse because there's a lot less incentive to make a visionary show these days. You're gonna hit market saturation with how easy it is to distribute. You no longer need to make a blockbuster to get worldwide release. So the drive to make /the best/ show ever and not just be profitable has definitely gone a bit down in the actual industry. Also related is that.. there's always been some real shit anime, and now you're not having the cherry picked cream of the crop shipped worldwide.

  • It's the Super Saiyan problem of escalation. It took years, literal and fictional for Goku to reach that level. It stuck with that show's universe as a defining moment. Then two kids hit that same level before the age of ten, and it's not enough of an impact to last. Cowboy Bebop deserves to be a classic, but it also didn't have to compete with such a saturated industry. When more people had the skilled artists, access to cgi, the money to pay for passion projects, we got a lot of anime that could have been on the same level as Gundam or such. So while I accept the idea that anime hasn't gotten worse, I reject the idea that there are no modern classics, because the people who will call them classics are the 12-15 years olds of today who grow up to talk about SAO, One Punch Man, Rage of Bahamut, Attack on Titan, etc in the TH-vision of the 2030s.

    • @NiceUsername ́ First if most people inside the community hate this show, it would not have achieved 32th all time BD sales with only 3 anime came after passed its sale. Disks are extremely expensive so no one outside the community will likely to buy it. Second almost all the so called "famous" anime were watched beyond the community.

    • @Saturn V SAO was big because it was watched by many people from outside the anime community, and most people inside it hate the show. Casuals shouldn't be the ones to define what is a classic.

  • While there is a lot of new anime each season, we're plagued with endless imouto, romcom, isekai, and poor quality cgi generic trash shows. Even some of the slice of life, where there is no character development or real conflicts. Older anime sometimes had significantly better character development and high stakes, plus anime of yesteryear was not scared to have an unhappy ending where the MC or important character would die or lose everything at the end. I feel like most shows today feel the need to have to wrap up with a generic happy ending, which is not how anime used to be. Back in the 90s and early 2000s, you never knew how it would end, does MC succeed or fail, or even die.

  • Nothing will ever top the Winter/Spring 2018 season. There was endless quality anime. This Summer 2019 season is one of the biggest duds in years. 3/4 of the week there is nothing to watch. A couple of seasons ago, it was new quality anime shows almost 7 nights a week the whole season.
