Someone on Instagram posted the image above The old Big 3 and the new big 3. Well of course she received a lot of comments. Some agreeing and some disagreeing.
Well let’s start with the old big 3. A lot of the comments I saw people were agreeing with the old big 3. Then you have many commenting what about Goku? Now I have to agree with the Goku commenters. Goku is one of the old big anime. Dragon ball was the breakthrough anime that put the stamp in the western world for more anime to Crossover.
Bleach, Naruto and One Piece are def part of the big anime, they each have well over 300 episodes. One piece of course have the most well over 1000. (Geez) But they are very popular anime that have on going stories that you follow. They also have characters you grew with through all their changes and developments.
With the New Big 3, the image has My Hero Academia, Boruto and Black Clover. The comments I saw was YES for My Hero Academia. I didn’t see any negative comments for that series. Then it was kind of a split decision with Boruto, one comment said “yay Boruto ❤️❤️❤️”then another comment said “Boruto is Shit. (😳) last, I saw so many negative comments for Black Clover. Many of the comments were complaining about Asta the main character.
I do believe My Hero Academia has what it takes to be one of the next staples in anime. It has a lot of great characters, the story line is amazing and character development is and going to be amazing. Boruto I feel will be a big anime by default because of Naruto. It started getting better from when it first started but will it hold up against his father’s series? Maybe not, but many Naruto fans will watch. As for Black Clover I don’t know if it will be a big one yet. I find the show to be entertaining and yet annoying as well. I do know Shounen anime usually does really well because anime fans tend to gravitate to Shounen. I guess we will see. But my opinion is Black Clover has a long way to go.
What are your thoughts on the big 3s old and new?
