What modern anime will we remember in 20 years?

With Bebop turning 20 soon, it's got me thinking about what anime from today we're going to remember in 20 years. What are today's Evangelion's and Sailor Moon's? Why do you think they'll hold their relevance in the future? And on the contrary, what currently popular shows will be forgotten by the next generation of weeaboos?

Madoka Magica, Steins;Gate, the Monogatari Series, Fullmetal Alchemist, Hunter x Hunter (2011), to name a few. Edit: K-On! too, of course!
I'm sure the most popular ones (Sword Art Online, Attack on Titan, One Punch Man, Boku no Hero Academia) will go down as classics too, regardless of their reception.

What? SAO is the only one among those that's controversial. I mean, they're all shounen (edit: OPM is seinen), but I don't think shounen as a genre is any less likely to last.

Oh no, of course, I meant in relation to the shows listed above. That is: while good, I don't think consensus puts these at 'GOAT contender' level like FMA or HxH, which needless to say are also shounen.

I definitely agree on the Monogatari series.

They won' t have to remember it though because it will likely still be ongoing then

One Piece, because it will still be airing.

It's already 19 years old jesus christ....Well 20 years on it's certainly hard to forget a show that's still airing

Just like Detective Conan 😂😂😂

SoL shows never get any recognition in these threads. K-On! is closing in on its tenth year and I'll be damned if I let it be forgotten another ten years from now.

Luckystar and K-On are on a level of their own. You have Yuruyuri and Is the Order a rabbit? which are great SoL and really, really popular but Luckystar and K-On have stood the test of time and are just as popular today as they were 10 years ago.

I agree with K-On, but lucky star isn't anywhere close to popularity it once had or K-on has right now.

Attack on Titan is definitely among the classics list. Regardless if you like it or hate it, you can't deny its influence. Same like things like SAO.

Definitely: the Monogatari Series, Steins;Gate, Death Note, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, One Punch Man, Madoka Magica
Maybe: Shingeki no Kyojin, Made in Abyss, Boku no Hero Academia
My personals: Houseki no Kuni (CGI was a big step), Ero-Manga Sensei (in infamy), Kono suba

I think aot,mha and opm have pretty good staying power because how popular they are not only among anime fans but also among non anime fans.
I think they will serve as the new big 3 for newer generation of anime fans.

Death Note was twelve years ago. It's a classic to be sure, but it's by no means a modern show anymore.

Yep. I also think the 90s is totally different from today because of the Internet. Shows will have much more longevity nowadays.

I believe Fate will be seen how we see Gundam now.

For the sake of the Fate franchise itself I hope not. But you might be right.

Most of shows you're listing are already nearly 10 years old. From truly new things I think Made in Abyss has a chance, but we need to wait few years and see what will stick.

Kemono Friends. 20 years from now all anime will be full CGI. We will also still be bitching about Kadokawa killing off the franchise 20 years from now. Plus Tatsuki will become the Anno of our generation.

I certainly hope not all anime is CGI, I can't stand it in the slightest
