Do you really? Modern anime is so bad I've grown out of it I don't know if it's lost in the localization or culture but the Japanese SUCK at writing for animation. They're all drones so I know they can make pretty scenes if given a budget but I no longer have the patience or time to slog through the bad anime . A lot of the old revolutionaries and names have died off or retired or are bitter over modern industry or regret ever being in it at all.
I like Japanese books and there are even Manga I'm a huge fan of that gave me fun things to chew on in my head. Anime just seems like Japanese popcorn to me . I don't feel changed or appreciative. The parallels from modern Hollywood and modern anime industry is too disturbing for me.
Maybe this is what it's like to get old , you start doing and writing things nobody cares about and you can't associate with the old social circles . I can't stand to be on /a/ anymore .
