I thought one of them might have been dead, and people who watch DBZA might not be into TFS' other works so I'd get a wider range of answers from the latter. Ironically I got more suggestions here than in the other one. My apologies.
I'll look at the ones suggested.
TFS' claim to fame is being the first group to make a really competent, really high quality abridged series. Once you get past that, you begin to see the cracks. There's a reason that their other shows, excluding Hellsing, didn't take off.
What other shows were those that didn't do well? I've seen a good number of them be pretty successful, and most of them are still being worked on.
It's all relative to DBZA. The viewer drop off between that and the other projects is staggering.
Obviously the group still exists but they're kind of like a relic at this point. Kept alive by collabs and the sheer breadth of the fanbase they created.
They still have a solid fanbase supporting them. If the stupidly-specialized audience doesn't care about any of their work other than DBZA then they're better off gone than coming back. Every time they post on Facebook there's idiots in the comments going "WHEN SEASON 4 FUCK YOU GUYS FOR DOING OTHER THINGS". Those kinds of fans are better off leaving than sticking around dragging down their work just because it's not Dragon Ball.
No one uses Facebook.
Millions of people would beg to disagree.
Don't let reality get in the way of the picture you have in your head, pal.
Niche internet forums pale in comparation to the big social media sites.
Also, the Hellsing finale has 4 million hits. If that's what irrelevance is like...

TFS is definitely not as high as it used to be, but I feel like that's more due to 1) abridging not being as popular as it used to be and 2) they themselves being burnt out on it. (haven't they more or less said this?)
Thoughts on quality aside, it does strike me as a major stretch to say "people started seeing the cracks" as the reason for the drop off.

Not "more or less", they've explicitly said this.
Like multiple times. It's pretty much a broken record of a dead horse being beaten to death.
And I don't blame them. Poor bastards spent 10 years doing it.
I always meant to watch those "making of" videos in their entirety. It's astounding just how much detail they put into fixing little animation mistakes or chopping up scenes to fit a joke.
I have nothing but respect for Kaiser.
...So, did anybody notice the use of the phrase "that's my B" from other people before Episode 60?
Wow, that joke hits so much harder in the post-Trump era.
Wow, it really does.
Funny, given Season 3 Vegeta ("I AM THE HYPE!") is far more Trump-like than Frieza in this show.

Freeza is the egomaniac in a position of power tho.
Well, every country has their own Trump.
They had Freeza call himself Space Napol-Hitler in Kai, that alone makes him a really good comparison to Trump.
When else was it was used?
Crap baskets was Gohan and Trunks' thing. There were a few others I noticed too.
I mean, like, by real people. I'm pretty sure I saw the phrase used by somebody on this forum way before Episode 60. Somewhere in 2014?
They didn't invent the phrase "that's my B". That's been around for a couple decades, at least.
That was a common thing to hear in middle school for me some odd -too long- years ago. Before DBZA for sure.
