Let's not forget Neo Yokio in that regard.
No, I think we should forget about that one.
Just in general.
Why forget the grand masterpiece that brought us the toblerone exorcist Jaden Smith?
You kidding!? It's one of the funniest shows ever!

I have a lot of time for So Bad, It's Good, but not for cringe.
Geoff joins the choir singing the praises of Kimetsu no Yaiba:
Y'know, while I liked the Big 3 era, I'm actually really glad it's over, I don't think stuff like this, and Neverland and Hero Aca would've gotten the attention they deserve with Naruto-One Piece-Bleach hogging the spotlight.
The end of the contiously running, Filler-filled adaptational model helps a lot, of course. (Poor Black Clover)
I mean, imagine stuff like Rorouni Kenshin and Yu Yu Hakusho with the amount of money-per-episode we enjoy today? Just thinking about it is enough to make a Shounen fan cream their pants rock solid, I tells ya!
Quick question, are digibro and mother's basement friends? Or do they have some badblood/beef between themselves?
If yes, how did it start

Black Clover feels like a remnant of those old days. Fairy Tail's on its way out.
While I'd like to have longer anime than 12-13 episodes, it's nice to have more diversity.
It should be noted that Black Clover is animated by the same studio that did Naruto, Bleach, & is currently doing Boruto.
Certainly explains a lot doesn't it?
The Studio itself doesn't really matter, its whoever the studio hires in the industry and the staff within it that matters far more.
Its why the quality of work in each studio tends to vary. Madhouse's stuff used to look god Tier, but after Red Line Bombed at the box office, as well as the insane cost on the stuff, many madhouse members jumped ship, forming MAPPA and Nut Studio, respectively, and the results show with Overlord Season 3. One Punch Man season 1, made after the split, only looks as good because the Director was able to get a lot of freelance talent in the industry, mainly from Studio Bones, some of Wit Studio, A bit of Studio Pierrot, and Satelight, who he happened to have contacts with.
@ Abraham Omosun: As for Digibro and Mother's Basement, they broke off from each other back when Digi was still considered a guest at the annual crunchyroll convention arround 2 years ago. MB doesn't even understand why to this day.
I honestly don't like Digibro either and he was the one who instigated it, and I'm not surprised, the guy's an asshole and a hypocrite who thinks he's smarter then he really is, even if he doesn't think that.
At the same time, its Drama importation, so I'd avoid asking questions like that in the Future here.

Studios kinda do matter though.
Their catalog gives a general idea of what to expect from them especially since they usually hire the same people for their works. Sure the staff can change like in Madhouse but for the most part it is the same people coming back to each show.
Its why Black Clover being a continuous weekly anime in an age where that's dying over is expected when its sister studio is doing the same thing with the concurrently running Boruto.

Except Not really, because unless its some like Kyo Ani or Ufotable, almost all the Studios in japan use free lancers, and multiple stuido's that don't work on Full series tend to work on certain key frames or inbetween works for other main projects, often being freelancers.
Hell, a lot of Studio Pierrot's staff is made of some Madhouse and Production I.G> veterans. A Bunch of studios are even looking at foreign Talent, like Thomas Romain from France at Satelight and various Chinese and even some American animators for Studio Pierrot.
Its why you can have Toei animators work on something like Ufotable or Kyo Ani as an Inbetween animator and vice versa.
The Studio system in japan is much more coplex then a lot of people realize, and often end up coming to massive misunderstandings on how the Anime Industry really works. Hell, Pretty much all anime on TV, even the ones we see as better in terms of animation, all have the same budget, regardless.

Heh Toei animators on Ufotable.
Not saying its false, its just a funny thought.
Toei is one of the oldest Studio's in the industry. They may not always have the best on staff at all times, but they can afford to because of how gigantic they are. Often working on multiple projects at a time, and thats not counting their Live Action division that work on Super Sentai and Kamen Rider.
Hell, they still get work from some of their old Collaborators from Studio Ghibli from time to time, too.
All their best animation work tends to be in the Pretty Cure series, and all their movies. The Wano arc of One Piece looks spectacular thanks to Tatsuya Nagamine's direction.
They also tend to be the earliest adopters of new Animation techniques, and actually have some of the Better CG in the industry because they have so much expertise with it.

x2 They did do DBS: Broly, which, in the words of my man Gigguk, is "eye-jizzingly good".
Toei has been in the business since 1948, and as Demongod pointed out, you don't exist that long without being really good.
It's just that they philosophy when it comes to work is the opposite of Studio Ghibli, and no offence to Ghibli, of the two Toei is the one far more likely to survive the upcoming decade.
Studios do decide the format and length of the anime, so it's not entirely irrelevant. You wouldn't see Bones or Ufotable make a 200 episode show these days.
I mean I'm mostly not a fan of 2 out of 3 of the big 3 so I don't really mourn that era too much. I enjoy Hero Aca, Neverland, Dr. Stone etc way more than I ever did Bleach or Naruto.
Cool story, bro!
I remember when i forst read Naruto, bleach and One Piece. it was exciting at first but then it became like a chore. I only follow them to reach the end and don't stop care much about what in the middle. I can even pin point the moment i bore with them: Naruto is after the time skip, Bleach right before the Goten 13 VS Aizen and One Piece after the mermaid island arc.

Samurai 8 is looking pretty good, though.
What helps is that the pacing of manga has changed these days.
Naruto & Bleach typically had these extremly long-ass arcs with slow pacing while most manga these days now have a more faster build so they at least aren’t stuck on the same arc for years.
I might have to actually check out Demon Slayer, though I'll probably just read the manga instead of watching the anime.
Depends how you feel about the art.
Not saying the manga’s art is bad but the anime actually improves on it to a massive degree & makes it Goddamn beautiful like summer set clouds.
Been actually catching up on the manga today, the art is great. But you know, I’m biased as hell.

Frankly, the work ufotable has done on the Anime has turned into the definitive version of the story.
I mean, the manga is not bad by any means, but the art is very rough and it doesn't push any new boundaries when it comes to action manga.
The anime, though? It took an already solid foundation and elevated it to new heights.
The fight against the Bassist Demon truly encapsulates it: in the manga it's good, but not in any way outstanding aside from the demon's design and the well done backstory.
But in the anime? This rotating, disorientating, Inception-esque fight that looks gorgeous and really freaking unique, truly showcasing ufotable's mastery of the blending of C Gi and traditional animation.
So yeah, can't reccomend it enough.
