* Majority of fans believed that Creator/{{CLAMP}} entered the Dork Age when their first original anime, ''Anime/BloodC'', took off which earn a LoveItOrHateIt reaction from viewers and poor BD sales for having a FailureHeroine which invokes a lot of GenreBlindness, IdiotPlot and [[DarknessInducedAudienceApathy the needless gore and violence]]. Though many argued that the dork age started when the last chapters of ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' enter into MindScrew territory and the NoEnding of ''Manga/{{Xxxholic}}''. CLAMP is now trying to WinBackTheCrowd by continuing ''Tsubasa'' and ''xxxHolic'' in order to fix the problem, the sales went down on its second week which indicates that CLAMP really needs to step up from their game to pass the dork age.

* The second season of the ''Manga/BlackButler'' anime is seen as this by nearly all of the fandom. The {{shotacon}} fanservice was cranked up to intolerably {{squick}}y levels, the new characters were poorly written and completely unlikable (and the returning ones were derailed or {{flanderized}}), and the plot was a near-complete mess that had nothing to do with the manga and had a GainaxEnding. It took ''years'' for another season to be made, and it unsurprisingly ignores everything that happened in this.

Added DiffLines:

** In general, when the anime goes through a DorkAge, it gets a lot of fan backlash (which sometimes extends to Ash and Pikachu themselves) due to its ubiquity and effect on other parts of the franchise. It also should be noted that said fans are the PeripheryDemographic, since the target audience appear to have had much fewer problems with Johto and Unova.[[note]]particularly the latter, which was most stable in the ratings throughout its run, whereas there was a noteworthy drop-off in Johto due to the ''Pokemon'' fad in general dying down in popularity.[[/note]]

** Oddly enough, the medium suffered another, much more severe, one that lasted from the late 90s to around 2005, with an incredible amount of low-quality, low-budget and low-story anime swamping the market, but it often seems to be forgotten about in favour of the more recent one.

** Overseas fans of the series tend to look down on ''[[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureVentoAureo Vento Aureo]]'' due to the perception of main protagonist Giorno as bland and uninteresting (though translations may be to blame for this), the extremely-formulaic MonsterOfTheWeek nature that exacerbated the flaws of the previous two parts' plot styles, the [[{{Narm}} narmily]]-[[WTHCostumingAgency designed]] and overly-generic villain Diavolo, and the ending, which reeks of DeusExMachina even by ''[=JoJo=]'' standards. Detractors take particular ire towards Giorno, who for the latter reason plus the fact that he's the illegitimate son of [[GreaterScopeVillain D]][[CrazyAwesome I]][[MagnificentBastard O]] (even reappropriating his battle cry of "MUDA MUDA MUDA") comes off as somewhat of a MartyStu.

* ''Anime/{{Mobile Suit Gundam|Age}} [[{{Irony}} AGE]]'' is simply condemned a mediocre and a mixed bag inconsistent attempt with [[GenerationalSaga a multi-generational plot]]. Some fans criticize it for [[TastesLikeDiabetes looking too childish]], others says it [[RecycledScript rips off everything the previous Gundams had]], others notice that the series digs deeper and deeper into having [[DarknessInducedAudienceApathy needless deaths, violence]] and [[IdiotPlot stupidities]]. The 2nd arc is considered better, but the 3rd arc pushes the series into rock bottom.
** This is probably why the OVA for that series, ''Memory of Eden'', decided to focus more on the second arc, to the point that it [[DemotedToExtra demotes Kio to a forgettable background character]] by the time the 3rd Generation comes along.

** While a sour taste was left by the Kalos League, the X and Y series was still considered to have been a pretty good series with awesome battles and beautiful animation. Things changed with ''Sun and Moon'', which got criticized for the design and portrayal of Ash and for ditching the more loved aspects of prior seasons and generations.
