Anime appraisal: A writer for Eastern Michigan University's Echo rattles off some anime history, then ponders one of the troubles of the "genre":

"The problem with the anime genre has become overexposure. I remember being in high school and thinking that Dragon Ball Z was the greatest thing in the world. I’m sure others can relate where shows like Pokémon and Voltron are concerned. After a while, I realized that the show was not that great and I have since become horribly choosy about the kind of anime I watch, attempting to find something more than cuddly cockfighting seizure monsters and schoolgirls beating up giant fighting robots, tentacle monsters and very large eyes."
