Anyone else notice that? Makes me not want to watch anime..
Wich ones? i've seen lots of good material around, Zombie-loan, Soul eater, and even the classic ones.
Moe is the answer you are looking for. Catering to pedobear otaku is profitable, so anime studios have forsaken the model of broad appeal that gave us stuff like Macross and Cowboy Bebop back in the good old days of the 80s-90s.
It's anything but now. The golden age of cute anime was 2007-2011-ish. Shows like Moetan or Skygirls? There's nothing modern and comparable to that.
