Anyone else getting tired of High School students in anime? It's had some good times and it's run it's course, but isn't it about time we move on to something else? Case in point, pic related. Sena's a great character(shovel it), but she could be even better if you put her somewhere else. I don't know, this is just my opinion. Madoka and Girls Und Panzer is a good start, but hopefully we get more shows like Nanoha and RKB

Aren't they in high school?

>it's course

Maybe you should stop watching anime, seeming that you may or may not be over the intended target audience age group.
>>
While I agree of your general statement, I don't think that your listed examples are much better than the cliche you are lamenting.

Let's talk real: It's all the moefags fault.

OP is a faggot. Discuss.

>>100135689
OP is a Senafag. That's a given.

Name a recent anime with not a single high schooler in the main cast.
Magic high school, space high school or the likes also count.
>>
>>100135423
SnK still a shit.
>>
>>100135423
There are many more genres and settings. Fuck off.

for real, i'm tempted to watch because of her character, but the whole premise itself doesn't interest me at all, it just sounds like something meant for shitty fat otaku

We need more anime set in college like Golden Time, Genshiken, or Kamisama Dolls

I'm still waiting for someone to adapt Biscuit Hammer ;_;

Being high school students is an important cultural aspect for Japan. Taking that away is retarded.
>>
>>100136868
Well at least for Golden Time it didn't really make a difference to a high school show.
>>
>>100135423
im fucking tired of high school shit, there should be more mature shit, as long as it has 1 loli it would be fine

you know why

>There will never be an anime about Grumpy Jii-san
>>
>>100137030
Add loli for instant awesome.
>>
>>100137030
The presence of a loli keeps the edgy factor in check.
>>
>>100138697
I can't think of anything edgier than a kiler loli.
Like Hard Candy, anybody seen the movie?
>>
>>100138697
The loli in Texhnolyze didn't lighten anything up, though. She was a dead fish.

Anime is about the most cliched medium in existence. It's called CAPITALISM.

The way the industry is set up is why it usually sucks. In a better world real anime/LN/manga writers would have lots of time to research, think, and write decent stories like in literature. All the big names like Satoshi Kon and Miyazaki have the leisure of only releasing when they have things to tell. But expecting Tolstoy from weekly manga and bimonthly LNs is stupid. Maybe you want seinen manga, where stories are more experimental. But the problem of having to tell a story when the author has nothing worth telling won't change, and even lolis won't save it.

Madoka is a middle schooler.

All of you faggots falling for his bait. We all know Japan does highschool anime because that is their target demographic
>>
>not knowing Seifuku is number one clothes fetish
of course they won't get enough

We need more protagonists in their late twenties or ealy thirties.
>>
>>100141676
How about an anime with a protagonist in his fifties? That would be new.
>>
>>100135423
You're not alone. Many cliches are being overdone.
>>
>>100141770
That'd cool too.
