I don't think many people in that room want to see Azumanga Daioh, Fullmetal Alchemist, Haruhi, Code Geass and Death Note for the hundreth time. There really is no point served by it.
We feel there is more to gain by showing you some material besides the blatantly obvious onces in the 00s.
Previous decades, there's major time differences. It was necessary to cover the bigger names.
This time it's different. The degree of familiarity and freshness in the memory is different. The task for us presenting the final 2 nights becomes a different kettle of fish.
