My brother (philosophy major):
"We're in a strange era in which we only do certain things because people hate it when we do those things. When everyone hates what you create, some part of your brain tells you 'this is right' and you keep making it.
That is why anime still exists."
I can't remember the exact way he put it, but his sense of humour is on-point.
