Mechanical Anime Reviews Podcast Episode 7: A Podcast about Anime Popularity and The Passing of Time

This podcast is about exactly what it says on the tin. I went through a bit of a ramble about the passing of time in anime, how popular fades, how series being popular isn’t always a good thing, and such. Its a bit of a mess of a podcast and it might be a bit incoherent, but here it is. Thanks for listening if you do!

  1. I loved watching patlabor one of the more contemporary less sci-fi mech anime’s that blended life and police work. I wrote a small post on the new patlabor but have not seen it.

    But it is is unfortunate. Not every series will survive time passing.

    I really enjoyed Haruhi too watched it a lot during my school days love the anime by KyoAni.

    Thanks for sharing these two retro shows. I do wish that more of these old shows can be rediscovered easily or re introduced to new generations.

  2. I hear you man. We live in transient times where each new season wipes away all discussion of the past few months, barring a few powerhouses that cling to relevancy for long enough to get a sequel; usually whatever series are easy to draw memes from.

    Still, I do see a lot of new fans entering the scene these days and it’s nice when they find seasonal series that stick with them, even as time moves on. Maybe Wonder Egg will be that show for quite a few people, or Ms. Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, or (if we go back a bit further) Yuri Kuma Arashi. I’d like it if shows stuck around longer in the fandom at large, but at least they remain special to a few people.
