Once upon a time gem upon gem was made in the Japanese animation industry. NGE, Cowboy Bebop, Haibane Renmei,Planetes and FLCL just to name a few.

Then came the year 2007, the year before the last great anime was released,and coincidentally the same year illegal downloading reached its heights.

By the year of 2009 the anime industry had declined into a shadow of it former self. True mature master pieces weren't made any longer, because the only ones who paid for animes where the otakus who enjoyed fapping to pubescent girls and some of them even KIDS. The word "plot" was unknown in these circles.

In the year of 2010 only 7 titles was released in Japan, due to lack of income caused by illegal downloads:

Clannad season 3
Kodomo no Jikan season 3
Kanokon Season 3
Code Geass season 4
Rozen Maiden season 5
Kanon version 2010
Lucky Star: The uncut scenes xxx-rated season 6.

By the year of 2011, anime was no more.
