Imagine a world where EVA never aired.

How is the anime industry any different?
>>
Probably better.
>>
>How is the anime industry any different?
There wouldn't be one.
>>
>>101883626
Nonsense.
>>
Probably a few less tsunderes and kuuderes, I guess. I wouldn't have to listen to lowlevels circlejerk over it, so that'd be a plus.
>>
>>101883647
It'd probably be dead, or incredibly niche, with a healthy segment of kids stuff; which really is the same as death.

Eva defribrilated the dying mdustry in the 90s, no ifs, ums or ahs about it.
>>
>>101883503
A handful of copycat anime from the mid 90's and early 00's wouldn't exist, also we wouldn't have to sit through shit like 3.00 to see if it gets good at any point.

Other than that, nothing.
>>
>>101883503
Someone post that article about Anno unintentionally inventing moe
>>
Less haremshit, less retards marrying pillows, less tsunderes and kuuderes, more anime about adults, less campy shit.

Basically Eva ruined anime.
>>
>>101883503
There would be one
>>
If Eva never existed, what would be the Evangelion of anime?
>>
>>101883762
It's already niche. And mostly shitty.

>dying industry
Bunch of nonsense repeated ad nauseam by ignorant Evafags.

If you could go back in time, how would you manage to get Anno to fix EVA and not run out of budget after a couple of episodes.
>>
>>101883503
It would probably look kind of like the western animation industry. Marketed exclusively to children and normalfag college kids. Less reliance on tired cliches but also less creative freedom as well. No real merch other than toys.
>>
>>101883823
I thought Love Hina invented the modern harem.

And that shit was more influenced by those martial arts/adventure anime with love triangles in the 90's than it was by EVA.
>>
To bad EVA was shit.
>>
>>101883503
>How is the anime industry any different?

Probably dead
>>
>>101883823
> more anime about adults

AHHAHHAH

Jesus no, Eva created the late-night slot without it you would get toy-commerciala and some shonen-garbage from time to time
>>
The same thing that would have happened if Stroebbels hadn't risen to power in Germany. We'd just get something else in its place.
>>
>>101884128
Yup, the slot for manchildren. I'm talking about adults.
>>
>>101883762
It's so easy to spot a Titan/Nurutu/Madoka faggot these days.
>>
>>101884287
You're pointing at the wrong guy, try >>101884217
>>
>>101884128
Except Eva wasn't a late-night slot anime.
>>
>>101884339

Except it's re-run was broadcasted late at night and created the slot
>>
>>101884339
It was after EVA 01 went full berserk and grew a human looking arm while brutally eating an angel.
>>
>>101884332
No, I'm right.

Evafags that delusional would get laughed right off of /m/ and /jp/. /a/ seems to keep getting worse at allowing casuals and newcomers in.
>>
>>101884408
>Evafags that delusional would get laughed right off of /jp/

That carries no weight whatsoever these days. You sound like the newcomer really.

The reiclone wouldn't exist? Or was kuudere enough of a thing before then to continue being a thing and the moniker only slapped on afterwards?

Except before Eva finished there were already night slot anime.

Nice emphasis on detail, really helps your point.

>toku board
The toku wars and not /m/ shitposting has been over for about 2 or 3 years, now.
>>
>>101884640
Yes. Those Who Hunt Elves.

Here is a better question, what would happen if ACC Productions and Kyoto Animation exchanged their Spring 2006 anime projects?
>>

>Nice emphasis on detail, really helps your point.

Sounds like your own posts as well.

It's already fine. If anything it made it better.

Yes by a mod saying it's ok to post toku on /m/

The board is garbage now

>>101884691
Kyoani is saved from a bleak future of shitty anime and there is 95% less weeaboos in the west.

Anime is saved.

http://wiki.evageeks.org/Statements_by_Evangelion_Staff#Interview_with_Toshmichi_Otsuki_.28Neon_Genesis_Evangelion_producer.29

Interviewer: DESPITE EVERYTHING, YOU WERE AN ENORMOUS INFLUENCE ON THE ANIME WORLD.
Otsuki: There have been two major changes in the anime world since Evangelion came out.
The first is that TV networks have expanded their programming to include more manga. There's also more manga being shown on satellite and late-night TV. I think Evangelion proved without a doubt that anime could be a powerful business.
The other transformation Evangelion brought about was changing the face of (the central Tokyo district of) Akihabara.
Up until then, Akihabara had only been a place where people bought household appliances and electronics, but anime gradually began to make its presence felt more and more.
At the time, people could only buy either laser discs or video cassettes, but we still managed to change Akihabara so that it became a place that went from selling appliances to selling software.
Personally, I think the "Evangelion Effect" mainly extends to these two things.
>>
Lain should be the Evangelion of anime.
>>
>>101884683

Look son, just because something airs at a certain time doesn't mean a slot was created.

Eva created the slot and multiple channels tapped in a demographic they didn't have before creating the late-night slot.
>>
>>101884784
The second could be attributed as correlation not equaling causation, really. I think the first is undeniable.
>>
>>101884802
Lain is very hard to relate with though.
>>
>>101884802
>hipster Evangelion with an bland as shit cast

No thanks
>>
>>101884816
Nope.
>>
>>101884802
Evangelion is the Evangelion of anime. Also the Lain of anime too.
>>
>>101884837
But it's a better series. Of course plebs prefer Evangelion and similar campy shit.

>>101884867
Lain is nothing like Evangelion.
>>
I probably would've been less of a turd growing up.

But then, no delicious Rei Ayanami expies everywhere.
>>
The anime industry would be dead

And honestly, it would be a good riddance

Fuck off hipster, thankfully Nakamura is dead and won't bother us with his garbage anymore
>>
>>101884919
I didn't like Lain all that much because it was too strange. I'm probably not the only one who feels this way.

Most retarded post this thread
>>
>>101884999
Lain is far more subtle than Evangelion and Nakamura didn't even watch your shitty Gainax drivel. He was inspired by Western literature and cinema.
>>
>>101885076

Oh yes I remember all the western cinema that has a fascination with power-lines

Right?

He made obtuse garbage that nobody cares for today and failed to make any impact on the industry
>>
>>101885076
He took the "nippon child becomes god" cliche and applied it to western cyberpunk

You can deflate your boner now.
>>
Does this matter? The best anime weren't inspired by Evangelion. Ghibli or Kon are obviously outside of the whole otaku market.
>>
>>101885533
What was the best anime inspired by?
>>
A world without Anno's superior artistic directing is a world I don't want to live in. Anno revived anime from dying, and 10 years later he came back and revived anime once again with the rebuilds. Anno is proof that God exists.
>>
>>101885574
Who knows. Probably many things. But film anime and TV anime are two different world.

It's not like Evangelion was the first mature anime or something.
>>

Good post anon. Anno truly is a force for good in the industry.
