Not necesarily with fan-service anime. If you've been following the past 4-5 years, you should have noticed that anime seasons now follow a certain pattern in regards of story/character development. You have 2-3 individual shows that stick out from the majority, a couple that are part of the category 'been there done that', one that overuses a theme to the extreme (the series with long titles, those with references to Nobunaga, Infinite Stratos copy-cats, uninspired mecha series, etc.) or shows that plainly suck big time.

Unfortunately, shows that revolve around the rom-com, mecha, ecchi and shounen/action are plagued by overusage, lack of creativity, poor directing skills and poor story and character developments. The economic crises delivered an even heavier blow in regards to the fact that anime producing companies stopped taking gambles. They rather follow a patern with an assured level of succes (sales wise) rather than break the ice and release something more genuine.

It pisses me off because before 2009 I had like 8-10 series to watch every season. Now I barely have 3-5. There were seasons when I watched only 2-3. Quality has been dropped drasticaly. Thus, I switched to manga. In manga I can find more series with more original content, more creative presentation, more ideas, more intriguing art, more interesting characters, etc. I do believe that Japan should open up to the Korean market. And vice-versa. South Korea has some damn great manhwa's out there, hard to transcend into anime, but worth a try. Art wise, korean manhwa beats a japanese manga any day. Some of them even story wise. The Winter Sonata anime was a nice catch, but it was sort of generic melodrama. Only difference was the korean voice actors taking the spotlight.
