So, why exactly does Anime need to be ''saved''? It seemed to be doing just fine until people started spouting this shit everywhere.
Because some people are too retarded to see that the reason they can't enjoy anime as adults is because they have changed as they grew older, but still feel entitled to free entertainment, so instead they have to lash out and blame the anime industry, other anime fans, etc... everything else but themselves
It's just a shitty forced may-may
You should be asking Yamakan that, not us. To this day I still don't know what he meant.
