Anime that I am fond of are dying.

Anime I used to know have long vanished. That itself is perhaps fine. I mean, trends change. I am not one to long for the past and am quick to move on.

However, what I consider good qualities have been vanishing and are replaced by swallow elements.

Allow me to go deeper.

➤ 3D is killing anime
I think it was around year 2015 when I began to see 3D being used more and more. 3D effects go far beyond that but entire anime scenes being replaced with 3D is becoming more common.
Again, that itself is fine but anime being rendered with 3D is often interior and you can easily tell (at least I can) 3D scenes from hand drawn scenes.
The benefit of 3D is that it saves time. A computer (or a cluster of computers) will generate all the moving parts. How convenient it may be, hand drawn anime will always be superior.

➤ Style is gone.
The days of each anime looking different is gone. Most anime series look very, VERY, alike. There is no good that can come out of this trend.
