As the anime boom wore down, 4kids sold the rights to their biggest CashCowFranchise, ''Pokémon'', to The Pokémon Company International in 2006. Creator/FUNimation ([[{{Irony}} ironically]] the distributer of 4kids [=DVDs=] once upon a time, ''One Piece'' included) picked up the rights to ''One Piece'' in 2007 and redubbed the whole series far more faithfully to the original. ''Winx Club'' and ''TMNT'' had their licenses cancelled and transferred to Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} (the latter alongside the whole ''Ninja Turtles'' franchise). With only ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' and a few lesser shows left, 4Kids filed for bankruptcy in 2011 after their longtime CEO stepped down. Creator/TVTokyo then filed a lawsuit against 4Kids over ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'', accusing them of underpaying anime licensors and conspiring with Funimation to avoid royalty payments by hiding the income. Creator/{{Konami}} picked up the ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' franchise and placed it under the 4K Media division, while Creator/SabanBrands acquired the rest of 4Kids' anime and cartoons.\\\

* ''Franchise/BlackRockShooter'' began life as a drawing that caught on like wildfire on Pixiv in 2007, prompting Music/{{Supercell}} to create a song based on the eponymous character. The song also became immensely popular, with its music video gaining six million views on Niconico, setting the stage for a multimedia franchise.\\\
''Black★Rock Shooter'' would soon gain [[Manga/BlackRockShooter three manga]], [[VideoGame/BlackRockShooter one PSP game]], multiple phone and browser games, and most importantly, an OVA, which proved successful enough to launch its own expanded anime adaptation in 2012. Unfortunately, this is where the franchise would meet its end. While commercially successful, the anime was chastised for its {{melodrama}}tic characters and excessive focus on the human characters. Not helping were the previous year's ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' and the following year's ''Anime/KillLaKill''; both shows were seen as better attempts at creating an unorthodox MagicalGirlWarrior anime, and have enjoyed mainstream success that ''Black★Rock Shooter'' never had.\\\
The franchise had a quiet farewell in 2013, when the song that launched the franchise was included in ''VideoGame/HatsuneMikuProjectDIVA F''. What was once an anime icon fell into obscurity in the span of five years.

* {{HBO}} production ''GameOfThrones'' has fell into this territory now as people go for shows like ''TheCatch'', ''MrRobot'' and ''GreysAnatomy'' because they have started to become tired of the SwordAndSorcery and TangledFamilyTree, as well as the more fantastical elements of the genre.
** The shows like ''Series/TheCatch'', ''Series/MrRobot'' and ''Series/GreysAnatomy'' have pushed ''Series/GameOfThrones'' firmly into this due to having more relatable themes (bad relationships, fear of hacking/cybercrime, medical issues/the NHS) and protagonists who are not just generic good / bad-guy characters, and StoryArc s that are considered well-written. ''Series/GameOfThrones'' still has a small cult following - as Reddit shows - but it's slowly being ebbed away as ABC's ''Series/TheCatch'' and ''Series/GreysAnatomy'' continue to be ratings juggernauts.
