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.

SAO could have been a great classic. Unfortunately they would forget that the show takes place in a video game and didn't take much initiative to remind the audience. Then that ending was probably the worst piece of garbage to ever air. I honestly believe that the abridged parody of SAO by Somethingwittyentertainment was far superior as is mixed a respectable blend of comedy, drama and action. The abridged does a fantastic job adding small edits to the series to subliminally remind you it's a game. Also the ending was perfect, making fun of the real shows ending and then applying a reference to real life problems with game developers. I don't think any abridged series have been able to accomplish what Somethingwittyentertainment has done with SAO abridged.

The only new anime I would say could become a classic is One Punch Man.. Though they kind of killed that chance with season 2

What's the name of the anime in 12:09
TheLocoRunner Hace 5 días
This is purely my intuition speaking, but the classics to me somehow contain more "meaning" than a lot of shows produced today. I'm not sure how to describe it, perhaps it has something to do with archetypes?

Thing is, that it's not just anime nowadays that lacks classics. Films, PC games, literature - you name it. We might have a whole cultural crisis on a rampage and the only people I'm hearing that from is a bunch of red Russian youtubers. There's an idea that basically this current lack of classics, and the cultural crisis it marks, is also a mark of a socioeconomic crisis, a very, very big one for sure. Hell, some even speak about a WWIII starting in the 20s after another world crisis. But returning to the lack of classics, the main cause for it is often called not just an oversaturation of the market, but the dropping rate of profit that follows. Current creators don't have the freedom they or their colleagues had before - as the rate of profit drops, along with such inevitable things happening as monopolization and more severe working conditions, the companies look more and more not for experiments, but a steady and trendy source of profit, and it's pretty logical - if an experiment fails, the company is doomed. That's why all current anime looks the same - because the companies can't afford it being another way, and the creators aren't allowed to make it another way. The lack of classics is an XBAWKS HUGE problem, and not only of the anime, but of the whole socioeconomic system we live in - capitalism.

D1rtySanchezZ1 Hace 10 días
ye i would call maybe the 1st half of SAO a classic. but i would 100% call 1 punch man a classic. when i hear the comedian Bill Burr randomly talk abou tit, like analysing it and recommending it on his podcast then its a classic. also a bunch of feature length anime movies are great recently.

We actually covered this topic in my film class. These were the things that critics and such look for and judge a media lasting power 1. Story has to come from the writers heart. No committee, no care for the audience, just something the writer has to express 2 the world has to be something you want to live in not just watch about 3 you have to have an emotional impact with almost every character 4 the story and its elements have to transcend its genre 5 the story and its elements have to transcend cultures 6 it has to inspire other creators 7 the waifu (love interest or person you want to be intimate with) has to be loved for reasons other than being dummy thicc or other visual appeal 8 the cast has to include characters that appeal to many people, and aspects of theirselves have to apply to the viewer. 9 it has to be of artistic quality, but that cant be the focal point. The art has to help drive the story, not be in the drivers seat. I'm missing a few details, but more or less this is what the basic check list entails. This is why I also think we havent seen anything in anime (or any media lately) that can be truly deemed a classic. Number 1 is the only one on the list that has to exist in any form of media to garner consideration as a classic, be it overtly stated by the author or covertly through the writing in said story. Everything now is about trying to milk the cow and not about actually caring for it and recently it's been showing like the suncutting through the clouds.

but do you consider Your Name a classic ?
ThePaintingBanjo Hace 12 días
There's a big thing on this topic that hasn't been mentioned by this video, or anyone here, and I find that sorta odd. Basically..... What did undeniable classics like Cowboy Bebop, Evangelion, and Serial Experiments Lain all have in common? The kind of anime that stays with you when you saw them? ..... They're all anime originals. Hell lets add more modern ones like Gurren Lagann, Last Exile, Texhnolyze, Code Geass, and Magika Modoka while we're at it. Ghost In The Shell can get away with this too because its source material and Stand Alone Complex are basically two very different universes. Virtually all modern anime today are basically manga and light novel adaptions, die-hard fans know exactly how the story progresses so there's a sizable disconnect between audiences that read the source material and the anime-onlys. Which hampers an anime's staying power the way I see it. Anime originals completely negate that issue and if they're great, everyone watching is equally invested on an episode to episode basis. That's besides the fact there's more new anime that has been coming out *_every single fucking year than there was IN THE ENTIRE DECADE OF THE 1990's._* Oversaturation is real and that's modern anime's biggest obstacle. We could have the next Neon Genesis Evangelion that changes anime for the better but it would hardly matter if people can't tell it apart from the hundreds of other recent anime that are on everyone's backlogs.

Tokyo Ghoul and Onepunchman could become classics if they had received due development of the first season.

Please could you make another classic anime video in 2025? By then some of the anime airing now may be considered classics then (see my icon. It may not be a great potential classic anime, but it did give me a great icon that I haven't changed for 4 years now.)

I agree with your points more than the MB video that came out, while its true there are many varieties of animes now, catering to so many peoples tastes, the different is all three points you stated with the emphasis on impact, because that impact is what lingers with you, makes you remember the anime, and can define your perspective on different matters in the world. Well made video nonetheless

Newer anime that I can totally see staying around for years: Attack on Titan: between the music, and unique story, people will talk about this anime long after it finishes. Your name: nothing more to add. Re:Zero: Rem memes will never die. (Best girl!) I also agree with MHA.

@FuriousMelon why? I'm not in love with it either, but it's not a bad anime if you like Shonen anime. I can't stand Deku, but the rest of the cast is interesting enough to compel me to ignore his constant crying.

I'll jump on this grenade. SAO is a classic! ...fight me.
Dan Hace 12 días
@Leonardo Pacheco I said it's mediocre. The flaws in the storytelling, characters that drop off and return, the GDS, etc are all negatives against it. But it's not horrible, but people slam on it like it's the worst anime ever. Enough people liked it (at least until their taste improves) where it will always be relevant. Which makes it a classic.
Leonardo Pacheco
Leonardo Pacheco Hace 12 días
@Dan I get what you are saying but never is Sword Art Online a good anime, don't get me wrong, one can certainly enjoy and like an average, mediocre, bad anime, no shame in that, I enjoyed watching Akame ga Kill but I know fully well it's average, and enjoy Juuni Taisen as well but I know it's bellow average. SAO is an average anime, the animation is good, the soundtrack is ok, the concept is good but it's just a bit meh, it starts out good and up until the point Kirito's low level squad gets wiped in a dungeon it's a good anime, after that it's borderline bad, the show turns into an harem show of girl falling in love with kirito just because he is overpowered, the seriousness of what happened until the death of that squad gets blown away, the show loses it's focus, is it trying to be just another harem, is it still a survival thing? Then it turns into a slice of life romance... and then after they go to the other game it's just rinse and repeat but worse and without the only good part of it which was survival... you can enjoy it and like it and wtv, but it is average.
Dan Hace 12 días
@Leonardo Pacheco and further to the point, SAO is not a "bad" anime. If you don't like it, that's your opinion, and you're certainly entitled to it. Hell, I loved it until I watched better anime, and slipped further and further down my list until being deposited in the recycle bin #earthday. But, if we remove any biases, or comparisons to other stories in the genre, it is never really less than mediocre, and normal mediocre anime don't catch nearly the amount of shit that SAO does.
Dan Hace 12 días
@Leonardo Pacheco the perception of quality is subjective (at best). Look at cars, as a parallel. There are die-hard Ford, or Chevy, fans who consider anything produced by the other as being low quality. That doesn't stop the Mustang or the Chevelle from being considered a classic.
Leonardo Pacheco
Leonardo Pacheco Hace 12 días
Nope, it is not, it lacks the quality. It's popular, it'll be around for a long time because it is popular, but it is average at best. If any animes of recent years are going to be classics, without any doubt, it's Made in Abyss and One Punch Man (season 1). Plenty of good anime coming out but only those 2 are on a quality level of their own.

So good to see LoGH in the discussion. That show proved that Asimov esq grand empires still have a place in visual sci-fi after Star Wars, that there can be excellent sci-fi anime that is not a mecha, and that you can really depict things of truly enormous scale, the numerous characters, warships, history itself, and places all coalesce to create such a gorgeous and believable universe that I can only hope to dream that there will one day be another sci-fi Empire as enthralling as Reinhard's. A place were the scale can go from both grand to the individual and capture the emotion of its characters in such a heartfelt, honest way. Reinhard looking at his locket and feeling alone for example. It just hurts to see, it's impossible not to empathize with his pain even as he commands millions. So, so excellent.

But seriously, the meaning of classic and the place its a classic has changed. Even though they all are called "classics" oldies have a strange nostalgic aura even if you have never seen that before. Old ones were nostalgic classics but new ones are mainstream and widely-known shows that lack the "classic" aura.

The seasonal anime market just can't get to make clasics. They are made to be an entertaining low budget advise and get you to buy some merchandising or the original source within the three of four months where it's popular. Besides from very few series like JoJo, BNHA, Mob Psycho, etc. you don't hear people talking about them years after they started airing or getting to be really popular.
