Are Anime Style MMORPGs dead ?

 I have been looking to play a decent Anime style MMO but it seems like every game in the genre just isn't good.Sure a lot of these MMOs keep coming out by the boatload but most end up being crap.So i wanted to ask if there are any decent Anime MMMOrpgs left and what is their future ? Also i would be thankful if you could also recommend some good ones with decent graphics and not too much grinding as most of these tend to be typical Asian grindfests with heavy dependence on cash shop and pay2win aspect.I am very new to the MMOrpg genre and currently playing my first ever MMOrpg called NeverWinter and am enjoying it so far.Also i looked through the forums a lot most people do not dicuss Anime MMOrpgs i want to know why are they not as popular as traditional WOW type MMos.Also are there any decent ones coming out soon ?

    Aion? Tera?

     

    I dunno, I generally don't mind the Anime aesthetic, but I do hate some of the "cutesy" stuff they do.

     Absolutely not, I believe there's one in development right now that's spot on with an anime theme.  It's also doing the whole 'create your world' thing like SOE. The combat system is also some what different than the standard MMO.

     Look for a game called Peria Chronicles (Project NT).

    Somebody, somewhere has better skills as you have, more experience as you have, is smarter than you, has more friends as you do and can stay online longer. Just pray he's not out to get you.

    Well Aion and Tera fall into the category of WoW style MMOs.Anime themed means games like Mabinogi,Eden Eternal,Dragon's Nest etc.I tried Mabinogi as it has been generally well received by the MMO community but it seems its too complicated for a newbie to get into so which leaves Dragons Nest and other Anime style games by Areia but everyone seems to hate games published by Areia ?

    Mabinogi is, was, and will always be the greatest of the cutsy mmo's.  Grind fest is synonymous with mmorpg no matter the graphic style.  The kill ten mobs and hand in this quest will always be there.  At least in Mabinogi there are so many options you forget the grind.  It's best played with a group of friends you know in real life.  Organizing a bunch of strangers to go where you want to go and do what you want to do is hair pulling.  But events are easy to converge on with anybody.

     

    I see people mentioned Aion that is like adult anime.  Usually when someone says "anime style" they mean the cherub looking characters.  I guess OP needs to define what anime style means to him/her?

    Hey Jemcrystal yes by Anime i meant cutesy cartoon style characters and world.As for non Anime MMOs i think NeverWinter is the best which is what am currently playing.

    That and...

    ...the under-age teenage hookers the female characters always look like

    ...not to mention the effeminate-looking male characters

    ...the stupidly-gargantuan melee weapons

    ...and last but not least the screeching and coruscating light-shows during combat.
