I've noticed that most of my fav animes were made around 2004-2006.
New animes are not bad, but they've been using a lot of computer effects which make everything shiny and "sharp". I don't really hate them, but it doesn't give you "that" feeling like in older anime.
It probably costs more to product quality as Ghibli studio, but older animes seem to be up there at least.
Don't anime nowadays seem bland to you? Like how the background is drawn - a lot of lighting effects but lacking in details.
The script for dialogues are not as good too. There are something wrong with it... as it's not as naturally or believable. It seems as it is written by a very young writer that doesn't put much thought in it.
