Pop Goes the Anime Bubble

Just the other day I posted on how I haven’t been following anime like I used to, and then today comes a post on Japan Probe illustrating that, apparently, the “anime bubble has burst.”

And as a follow-up to my anime post, I have watched the first episode of each series. Verdict? I can’t see myself watching any more of Guin Saga — everything I saw felt like generic fantasy, and there was nothing to hook me. Higashi no Eden doesn’t have me yet, but I’m at least willing to watch a few more episodes to see where things are heading.
