Will moe be the death of anime?
Last week, Dai Sato claimed that anime will disappear within the next thirty years, due to a lack of creativity in the industry. On this week’s Bakacast, we address that controversial issue. Is the over-saturation of moe to blame for the anime studios’ financial woes? Or is this just another genre craze that has overstayed its welcome? Does too much focus on merchandising limit quality storytelling? We debate these difficult questions and more.
After that serious business, we move on to lighter fare with this week’s anime reviews.
- Black Rock Shooter OVA
- Highschool of the Dead #4
- Occult Academy #4
- Seitokai Yakuindomo #4 (officially dropped after this episode)
- K-ON!! #17
That’s it for this week. We’d love to hear your feedback, so let us know what you think in the comments below! [Opening music is “Invaders Must Die” by ChipDudeRoss]
