Backing up the OP
I'd have to say yes.
A series of IMOs:
Of originals, HM is done, SG is done, Brak (which is a lot better in hindsight than I gave it credit for) is done, ATHF had a weak season 4 (though I have hope it can come back), the once-funny Sealab turned to crap, and Birdman's gimmick wore thin. Of the new stuff, I think VB is the current highlight of the block and Tom is decent, while RC is dull and unfunny and only a few of the many upcoming shows have my interest.
Anime wise, Paranoia Agent was pretty good and GitS was decent enough, but Champloo and FMA don't interest me. I think 2003 would win on anime.
Really, it was great from like early 2002 (when I first started watching) until 2004. As of now AS still has enough good to keep me interested (and obviously the mainstream ratings would disagree with me), but really, I'd take the early years any day.
But it seems I'm in the smaller portion on this one.
It recently dawned on me that my signature could be interpreted as being said by me. For the record, this was not the case. If the previous signature reduced your opinion of me, please increase your opinion. Thank you.
