The most recent anime I've watched and really liked was Wonder Egg Priority.

Honestly I only know casuals that didn't think of this anime as complete trash. It's not generic and the art style is really good, but it really feels like it was made for edgy teens to relate to. I watched half of it but it was too repetitive for me to keep watching.
Well I guess it's just one of those animes where opinions differ, I'm glad you could enjoy it, I wouldn't recommend it though.~

>the art style is really good
That was what sucked me into it. Normally don't like that much CGI, but it had a unique look. Sometimes that's all it takes for me.
>made for edgy teens to relate to
Yeah, that kind of turned me off too and at times I wondered how much of it was sincere story telling and how much of it might be a platform for a gacha game down the road. Could picture parents scolding their edgy teens for over spending on too many eggs.
>too repetitive
Was a little disappointed after the first couple episodes to see it was turning into a monster of the week, but I stuck with it because I found it had a sort of surreal quality that I don't often come across… posting this here on a board that often loves Lain, so maybe that says something about my tastes. Anyway, halfway through I began to loose interest, but it took a couple weird twists towards the end and that's what redeemed it for me.
Like op said…
>i feel that all the series i loved are about to be 10 to 15 years old
I can relate to that and for the last couple years I've mostly been watching anime older then that, feeling a little burnt out on popular contemporary art style for the most part.

Okay the prove:
While the big movie producing industries like hollywood or the very original pajeed equivalent bollywood have very high costs for their movies, the production cost for animes is rather small in comparisson and the story (in most cases) is based on a successful manga.
What does that mean?
It means that hollywood NEEDS to make a lot of money to even go even, which means they need to rely on existing strategies that worked already, so the chance that the viewer likes the movie is maximized. They mustnt experiment because they'd lose millions.
With anime on the other hand it's the exact opposite.There are a lot of different more or less successful mangaka, who all try to be different in some way, because everything that is trendy will never really be successful or viewed as a piece of some kind of art. Mangaka need to experiment and build something new and original from their fantasy, or alternativley they just drop some moetrash that nobody watches anymore 1 year after release. Of course they exist as well, but that behavior is the norm in f.e. hollywood.
Every movie feels like a different movie just with a different skin. >90% of the new movies follow the same storyline and just have a some small adjustments.

>>215

Example:
There's this boy who isn't really cool but he's got that one friend who isn't really cool as well. Actually his friend doesn't mean shit he's just there for the introduction, because they do something outside, probably in the nature. Then the boys (disrupted) family-conditions are introduced and shortly after he bumps into something weird/special/supernatural (what the movie is about). Anyways by that time the boy has probably already met his sidekickchick that is a pretty cool girl and she is really weird but interesting at the same time. She's not interested in him at all but always ends up in those sticky situations with the boy, so they get closer to eachother because they get twisted into this shared goal of doing something in order to prevent the big bad. In the end they either defeat the big bad and the boy nearly dies so the girl realizes she is into him or it turns out there was actually a different one the actual big bad endboss. In that case it's likely he takes the girl hostage and the boy saves her.

This pattern with small adjustments is 90% of what comes out of hollywood. And then there are some higher quality movies like Tarantino stuff, but those are the exception.
Of course anime has it's phases and trends as well, where like the majority produces f.e. isekai-animes, but the probability of some weird ass mangaka coming up with something refreshing is way higher, because he doesn't give that much of a fuck about the financial perspective when producing his piece of art, unlike hollywood that - like already mentioned - needs to be on the safe side with their concepts and productions.

And another point is: Actors can never perfectly act and the best actors are even worse because you know them from different movies which kinda breaks the whole illusion. Anime is - think about it - way more authentical than lifeaction in that matter.

>steins;gate
picrelated, overreaction reaction image. i liked steins;gate, but have to kinda sorta disagree. yes and no. cyberpunk in it's way, but also a lot more comedy then lain. more moe. more intentionally self referential to anime as a genre unto itself. there is the john titor mythos and it's use in the story is similar to that one lain episode, layer:09, where there is the exposition on the various conspiracy theory type philosophizing that is a backdrop to sel. both riffing off of that building 90s conception of cyberpunk. where they really diverge for me is in the style and pacing. lain can be so slow, vague, and has such a weird mood to it. i've yet to see any other anime like lain that i could compare to it on those grounds. maybe if a director like david lynch directed an anime? the way sel story is told reminds me of something like a david lynch movie, where at the beginning you have no concrete idea about what is actually happening until the world that's being built explains itself somewhat and the film just seems like a vague dreamlike poem, with little narrative, made for the sake of the aesthetics. and even then, there is a lot left up in to interpretation. i do wish that i have seen more anime like that and could recommend something.

S;G and Lain are both 10/10 for me and I completely agree with you. Lain is more about transhumanism and the feeling is comparable to AKIRA or NGE. While S;G shines through the relatable characters and even though it is a /cy/-setting it's still a mixture of a lot of anime styles. Steins;Gate is a good story with brilliant characters told in the best way possible, but it doesn't really have such an actual message.
