I heard about that Japanese bill, banning all "inappropriate" anime/manga.
I feel that the anime industry is heading toward a dead end. The manga industry fairs little better.
It's just that there is no real incentive for talented individuals to go into the industry.
The only anime I am looking forward to is Code Geass season xxx. If KyotoAnimation decides to make something, I'll be sure to check that out as well.

Aria, Bakuman, Fractle, Gosick, Kimi ni Todoke, and Tegami Bachi are just a few in my currently watching list that are great, but have little to no ecchi elements.
This is pretty much what turned me off from anime in 2010 and now. I want a show with some substance, even if it is going to trainwreck later.
quickscan of my external shows that the last time i downloaded anime was for Darker than Black and Angel Beats.
Fractale was an interesting concept this season but I'll reserve judgment on it until a few more episodes come out.
Rather than catching up with old animes, I find it more rewarding to catch up with old manga series.
Manga, unlike anime, stays consistent in quality throughout. The quality of an anime episode is a rollercoaster.
