Are you ready for the inevitable? The newest and largest pub argument amongst anime fans for the next year or so is on it’s way. While others can argue how anime has changed over the decade, most notably in the internet explosion, the average folk will slam their glass on the table and proclaim that ‘Code Geass will be forgotten in a few years’ or that ‘Monster is the most under-rated anime of them all’. So I’m going to try to shed some light upon this topic. Now I won’t be saying what my picks are, oh no. I’m going to be acting like a bookie, weighing up the odds for what will be voted top of the charts. For this I’m going to assume that the winners will be decided by a poll, much like the Animesource polls, where each voter gets 5 votes. Place your bets folks. What was the best anime of the 00′s?

It has begun. Japanese companies are getting into the real world. Crunchyroll, Joost, Hulu and the like are becoming the places to go if you want your anime fix. With every passing day ANN brings in more news about shows being streamed legally. Gonzo and Crunchyroll started but it’s only now that it’s becoming more apparent rather than a topic if you happened to like Strike Witches.
But now the bandwagon is catching speed. Skip Beat is a fantastic acquisition. I’m not mad on the show but many shojo fans love it. Naruto was an even better catch as it influences the younger audience, plus it’s probably the most watched show across the entire anime sphere (this includes all those other streaming sites where you wouldn’t hear about the numbers).
But the most significant outcome from all of this is the response from Dattebayo. The fansubbers are going to stop subbing. It’s not like they are dying out. It’s just the anime companies have started doing exactly what the fansubbers have wanted them to do.
What this bandwagon needs now is to get now is to get the next critically acclaimed, widely popular show. And there are two sitting there, soon to be released that, if they get them available legally, the bandwagon will have enough speed to see it out to the end.
And what are these 2 anime? Sequels obviously. Full Metal Alchemist Season 2 and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Season 2.
The bandwagon has taken off and woe befall those who miss it
::Edit:: So long as this isn’t another bleeding troll ::Edit::
There are a few people out there who watch Naruto on a weekly basis. Some people like to download their newest episodes straight off the group who sub them: Dattebayo. Others like to scan veoh or youtube every week or so to get the latest episodes. Well, that might be a bit of a problem since Dattebayo have stopped subbing Naruto forever.
::Edit:: Woops, turns out Dattebayo do this a lot. They just scare their fans from time to time to see their reactions and stop them from uploading them onto streaming sites ::Edit::
