This article was very poorly translated from Japanese.
What he actually said was about animation. Animators no longer spend time watching real humans move (because they hate humans), so they don't really animate it realistically anymore. It didn't have much to do with otaku.

lol this guy is so senile now. First, he says his movies aren't anime even though they are animation made in Japan, and now he's saying that people funding the industry is the problem with it. It would be a lot better if all the companies went bankrupt and there was no anime at all, right old man?

...and the problem with Miyazaki is that he hates everything and everyone.

That's...actually a really good point. But I don't watch anime because I don't like looking at other people. I admit, I'm kind of a shy person who has trouble making friends, but the friends I've made have been a very positive influence on my life, and the only reason I haven't made any newer friends right now is because I'm kind of undergoing an adjustment period and under a LOT of stress. But I don't watch anime because I want to get away from people. I just watch it as a way to get away from the stress in my life, and because some other American-made cartoons don't really appeal to me (but that doesn't mean I hate all American cartoons! I adore the Avatar series and My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic!). But I can see where Miyazaki'd get that sentiment, and in a way I do kinda agree with him. Instead of churning all of these stupid wish fulfillment harem and fanservice anime, we need to recruit people who actually have ambition and want to make passionate, ambitious anime, just like before, not that there aren't any in this day and age.

Vortia: In his case, that makes him endearing. Cool

Reminds me of how opinionated my late grandmother was. In the 60's she disliked the Johnson Administration, the Vietnam War and being a very talented painter thought modern art was pure junk.

All we could do was grin & bear it. Very Happy

As someone who thinks people that actually like Apple software are a bunch of wankers I would agree with some of what he has to say. Lol!

True enough, yet I doubt Miyazaki has any love for the (modern)Otaku Culture as he had expressed a distaste in the rise of Moe years before it became one of the primary pushing force.

Heaven forbid that anime should be made by people who really love anime.

Well, in the way that he meant it, yes? I'd rather not have a repeat of the American comic book industry.

And that's why he's gonna have to come out of retirement and show everyone how it's done. He doesn't want to unretire for the 50th time, the industry is forcing him to.

If you can't make something because you love the art form, then what should you make it for? Money?
