    cartoons these days :(

    Honestly, there are a lot of things in play for this sort of opinion 1) You're not the audience newer shows are made for. It's harder to find an in as part of the periphery demographic. 2) Nostalgia is a powerful thing. You're going to hold things you grew up with in higher regard (I grew up with and loved/still love TMNT, The Transformers, GI Joe, and a lot of other shows from around that time. but that doesn't mean that when I watch them now, I don't see all the glaring flaws that were present in them that you don't find in newer stuff) 3) You were likely far less discerning when you were younger. In addition to the shows with staying power, I watched a ton of junk when I was younger. Junk I would've regarded as really cool/fun/interesting in the eyes of 6-10 year old me. 4) Growing up you had a larger pool of stuff to draw from. The cartoons I watched as a kid ran from things that were new in the 80s/90s all the way back to 60s Hanna Barbera and WB stuff. So of course I'll be able to find a ton of great shows when I'm looking at things that were released over 30-40 years and several shows have already stood the test of time. Comparatively, since that time it's only been another 20ish years, so there hasn't been time to filter out all the crap and leave us with just the best material. While it's possible that overall quality has changed somewhat, I've never liked the idea that this is somehow a dark age of cartoons or whatever. "Everything new is garbage. <blank> was was better in my day" is a universal attitude. The same can be said about music and movies and any kind of entertainment, and likely has been said for decades and decades. I'm sure our parents probably looked at our beloved cartoons when we were little and said "what is this trash? When I was a kid, cartoons were great!" just the same as we as grown-ups (or grown-up-ish) do now.

    Greetings and salutations

    How did you find Kametsu? Was linked here by the impending closure of C-W. What do you think of the place so far? Seems nice. Lots of old faces from C-W, a lot of the content moving over, and some new potential discussion How active are you planning on being? Hard to say. I usually try to be fairly active, but I have a bunch of other forums I post on as well so it sometimes cuts into the time I would spend here What are your top five anime? Hmm, tough call. Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Dragonball Z are probably the easy 4. I'd say Bleach, but I only liked the first couple of seasons. I have a soft spot for the goofy english dub of Medabots too. Top five video games? Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Super Metroid, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy IX, Assassin's Creed II/Brotherhood (taken together) What other hobbies do you have? Sports (hockey especially. Baseball too.) Make any graphics? Yeah, I dabble sometimes. Do you have any questions for us? Don't think so, nope. So I think that about covers it. thanks for having me.
