Wow. They picked a bunch of anime intros from YEARS ago, most of which are only known to western audiences because of cartoon network or adult swim airings suggesting whoever actually made the list (no way it was that bitch) knew next to nothing about anime that wasn't dubbed, badly translated shit with all manner of scenes cut out.

Seriously, you can stop fitting in any time you want.

While not the best list it's certainly good for something like IGN. On top of that the only shit here is stuff that's gotten an objectively good dub, to everyone suggesting more underground shit or new stuff. I doubt any of the staff has watched a lick of proper chinese cartoons.

Anime becoming more mainstream is not necessarily a good thing.

Bioshock's latest game heroine had to have her boobs become smaller (and not in a way /a/ would approve of).

Anime become mainstream = /v/-like anime is all we get.

This is actually a really understandable list when you consider the constraints of being a casual. It looks like a list a 30-year-old geek with a few dozen anime under his/her belt would make. They're judging the OPs pretty fairly based on artistic merit as they see it.

All that said for it... it's fucking shit. What rock are they living under to have not seen NGE

Also, Inner Universe better than fucking Rise? Come on. Inner Universe was SAC trying to be ambiental in its OP, Rise was SAC being SAC.

>Anime becoming more mainstream is not necessarily a good thing.

Have you forgotten fucking POKEMON? Anime already went through this shit for fucks sake. Anime was far more popular then than it is now. This shit is NOTHING.

>>
>>101045529
Yeah, because western gaming market is huge for Japanese games and they've always tried to sell and market to the west. And because of the increasing vocal female market, they're taking notice. It's harder to make "games for girls" than it is to just make your game appeal to both sexes.

Unlike anime studios who couldn't give two shits if Americans buys their stuff, (video gamers =/= anime watchers anyway) and they more easily can create series just for female viewers in the first place. Less time in investment goes into that rather than a video game.

Just get over your "wah I hate woman" bullshit cause it's only gonna keep going. No one wants to hear it.

Clearly it is. What were you expecting? It's a west made by westerners who are looking for artistic merit.
Hell, even if you don't limit their list to western-exposed anime, it's still not bad. Look at 2ch's top 20 anime openings--they mostly vote for whatever gives them the most nostalgia even though the songs are often mediocre and the footage is jut clips from the anime.
>>
>>101045300
Actually there's a lot more releases that are SUB ONLY these days. Half the stuff that Sentai release, NIS America, I think the Bakemonogatari release by Aniplex was sub only.

It really depends on the title, but Funimation ALWAYS dubs all their licenses.
>>

There was a huge anime boom in north america from 2003-2007 or so, companies would license dozens of shows every season, and people would actually buy dvds. The market eventually popped due to economic crisis+pirating+anime losing it's popularity due to not having a high-profile normalfag show for ages and companies still trying to fish for normalfags.

It's extremely basic and what you'd expect from 2deep4u artsy mature shit IGN and other mainstream things do.

It's literally a list of all the anime you heard of if you were "mature".

Bebop

I honestly can't think of any others I really loved, but I'd very hesitantly suggest S;G (I don't know, but it worked with the show), Soul Eater, Railgun or maybe Symphogeah... I'm pretty sure I'm missing some OPs I really loved, but I can't remember them...

I live in England, too anon. There was a definite increase in interest with show like Gundam Wing and Dragonball on Cartoon Network. The sci fi channel had a boner for the first GiTS film and Akira for about a year, too.

I even remember a friend trying to get me into Naruto when I was 15 or 16 and effectively killing my interest in anime for a few years

Anime watchers and video gamers aren't even related. It's very obvious the general populace that visits /v/ fucking hates most of the anime we watch on a seasonal basis.

Sure, the list is quite limited in its scope, but all of the OPs it mentions have plenty of artistic merit. They aren't just cast rolls like most OPs. I could watch all of those openings without having seen the anime and go, "Hey, that was pretty neat."
It's hilarious to see the reactions in the comments. "Filthy casuals! I watch my anime subbed, which means I know what art is! Where is Attack on Titan, Sword Art Online?"

Hell, a lot of people are probably going to go see Elfen Lied thinking they're in for a good show because of that list, and that's even more hilarious.

You know what really worries me about this.

IGN is reporting ANIME.

That's it we've gone mainstream. /a/ is already dead with meme shitposting and feels. The west is funding anime. Dandy isn't so bad now but just wait until more studios are pandering to shonen 'murican retards. We'll eventually get a Cowadoody of anime. Shit gets animated and we're left to scraps of moe shows. They all get drowned out by the populous of narutards and dandy money. The way of the neet is dead and we should accept it.

Anime is exclusive to gook worl, they don't accept outsiders. Only weaboos thing anime is superior.

>>101049503
Will it really though? Do you know what makes anime profitable in Japan? It's not just ratings and it's not just BD sales. It's merchandise and tie ins too.

What are some casual viewers tuning in for Space Dandy gonna do than maybe go and buy the BD/DVD went it comes out? The Japanese aren't gonna make any profit, it's Funimation. And Bones isn't making any money from those ratings, its Toonami. Toonami/Funimation paid Bones & thescreators money for this collaboration and airing it before Japan.

Do you think anyone other than Watanabe could have gotten such a deal in the first place? When he's got a loyal following thanks to Bebop?

The only watanabe stuff I've seen are the 2 OVA's he did for the animatrix which were probably the best things to come out of the matrix

>>101049837
You're right, there isn't anything stopping them. But that's not gonna affect the Japanese market and the overall anime they produce. They're not gonna stop making K-ON 2.0 or the next Oreimo.

They're still focused on the Japanese fans and market. Maybe studios like Bones or Production IG and perhaps Madhouse (who knows though since they were bought by NTV) care at all about Western viewers tastes and might try to do a similar thing like Space Dandy.

But this is a huge risk. There is no way to promise it would work out if they tried it again, and why take a risk with a market they don't really understand when they can just keep making the anime they do know with already loyal fanbases? It's really like with how The Big O season 2 happened, it was the Western market reaching out to Japanese to make something. Not the other way around.
