What this really means is a fanbase where the people are fans and therefore you can't manipulate them into thinking the show is shit in your opinion, thinking your opinion means shit in the first place

Hunter Miller

To me it was the impression that it's basically all style no substance. All the things that everyone considers deep or touching about it just fell flat for me and seemed super shallow. For instance, I couldn't care less about Spike's backstory, Vicious and that annoying woman, I thought all that was really redundant, and if that was supposed to be important, the authors failed to make it appear so. I think they should've stuck with episodic adventures and tongue-in-cheek humor. Mind you, I'm absolutely not one of those strictly against shifts in tone from light-hearted and quirky to serious and melancholy, I just think that here those shifts were poorly handled, and there's no organic cohesion of those two aspects.

That's fun. You don't like Bebop, Golden Boy, or Pizza Cats?

It's overrated, but still great.

Here are mine:
Cel animation is far visually superior than digitial animation, even modern digital animation.

aside from a few standouts, the worst era for anime was the 00's, and things have steadily improved since 2010

cute for the sake of cute is generally boring unless it is really funny or well directed

Kind hard to judge bebop since it's been a while since I've watched it, but from what I remember it was pretty good.As for Golden Boy, I remember MC's voice being kinda annoying but it's been a while since i've watched it in it's entirety. I prefer Teyandee to Pizza Cats, I'm kind of a purist and ad-libbed gag dubs don't do anything for me.

all style no substance
Style is substance, especially for Cowboy Bepop.
I thought all that was really redundant, and if that was supposed to be important, the authors failed to make it appear so
You were never supposed to care about Vicious and Julia, that's something people misinterpret about the show. The two of them are active detriments to Spike and he has no real reason to get so worked up about them (Faye and Jet say as much themselves), but he does because of the tragedy of the character.
those shifts were poorly handled, and there's no organic cohesion of those two aspects
I'll have to disagree.

TTGL is lame shonen self-insert with homestar runner animation.

Some of these might not be that unpopular but still

shonen is garbage 99% of the time thanks to Shonen Jump being so popular that they can perpetuate their cliche shit
slice of life is no fun unless there's a lot of drama or a lot of comedy
anime as a whole tends to be trash but the absolute best/unique ones like Serial Experiments Lain are what make it worth it for me
even then, anime and manga are both fundamentally flawed in that anime doesn't have western animation level budget so it's not able to show through animation as much as western stuff and unless it's something like Berserk, most manga are unable to mar art and writing like western comic books basically there's a lack of cohesion when it comes to anime/manga
not only Cowboy Bebop, but most western friendly anime stuff like Hellsing Ultimate, Black Lagoon, Trigun, etc. is heavily overrated
despite being a /mu/ guy who laughs at most anime OSTs, at the same time I believe there are a lot of anime tracks that are experimenting with certain combos of genres and making them work better than any other medium that does music if somebody talented were to take similar ideas great things can happen
probably because I am older now, and this isn't to be pretentious, but I a appreciate mostly just seinen stuff when it comes to anime/manga since I can personally relate to a lot of it because of not only more mature concepts but because I have legit done bad shit in life and seinen are more likely to cover that type of stuff

You don't mind the original's copious amounts of time wasted? Would that not also be a nostalgic driven defense force kinda thing?

Oh no! I am so mad. here have a (you)

The importance of narrative/story is overrated and is just a means for formal experimentation. See Tatami Galaxy, Space Dandy, FLCL. The thing you take away from these are that they are works of animation first and foremost.
Style over substance is a literal meme. A work becomes art through style. Form is everything that makes art meaningful.

Benjamin Torres
Benjamin Torres

There is tons of substance in Tatami Galaxy and even FLCL. You literally do not know what you are talking about nor do you understand the debate of style vs substance.

There IS a narrative in both FLCL and Tatami Galaxy and even Dandy. There's just a difference between episodic narratives that connect with a theme and ultimately do build to something and episode of the week no content other than flashy things on a TV screen.

Justin Myers
Justin Myers

Yes there is a narrative but they are a means to the form.

Aaron Torres

What the fuck are you attempting to mean? The story to Tatami Galaxy is very key to its meaning, without a narrative you could not properly express any of it. Hell despite its strange execution Tatami Galaxy IS an overarching story that Watashi learns from and grows from.

Joseph Morris
Joseph Morris

I'm arguing that Watashi's character arc for example is not the main draw of Tatami Galaxy. The primacy of narrative is just a commercial obligation.

Kayden Reed
Kayden Reed

Not to mention FLCL and Dandy are animation showcases. You also happen to equate narrative with substance which is a meme because it implies the animation part of an anime can't be meaningful on its own but only in service to the story.

Oliver Butler
Oliver Butler

I'm arguing that Watashi's character arc for example is not the main draw of Tatami Galaxy
Maybe for you but that's a completely subjective opinion as the whole point of the series and novel it's based on its entirely Watashis character arc and the life lessons he learns.

If I have a choice, I just pick whichever version's voices annoy me less, don't really care what language it's in

Only one off the top of my head that I preferred the dubs was Steins;gate, but still

Art style makes or breaks anime. I resisted giving anime a shot for a long time because I assumed it was all shitty-looking cartoons for kids, like DBZ.

For instance, I can't stand (and have never finished) watching Hunter x Hunter even though people rave about it, because the art is bad and the characters (especially the MC) look fucking retarded.

that's not a Japanese specific problem, it's all over hollywood too, just instead of melodrama it's over-the-top explosions and special effects.

Cancerous fanbase

What does this actually mean? I've hardly see them anywhere other then their threads and maybe a handful in threads already being derailed. What makes them "Cancerous"? Is it because they like the show?

Very unpopular opinion.

NGE was just to fucking pretentious, and i think Anno actually knew it. It has to much symbolism compared to story, the story was meh at best and the animations were the only thing that i found interesting.

How much shittier can one's tastes get?

I can tell you haven't read/watched it yet then you underaged faggot, because I thought the same thing. It isn't gay until part 5.

Jordan Turner

Not him but TTGL isn't anything amazing by any stretch of the imagination. It's fun but not like it's the peak of anything, I personally enjoy KlK more because it has a really fun cast and at times it's plot isn't that bad.

I agree honestly, I can't think of a worse central premise than "keruururrr giant robotsss", the stupidity of that concept alone pretty much keeps me from enjoying anything else about the show

you know why no military IRL has made giant robots? because they'd be fucking useless and outclassed by literally any other kind of war machine

YEAH LET'S MAKE THIS GIANT MACHINE WITH LIKE FIFTY BILLION MOVING PARTS, AT LEAST 85% OF WHICH ARE ENTIRELY BALANCE-RELATED SO THE FUCKING THING DOESN'T FALL ON ITS "FACE" EVERY TWO SECONDS. THEN STRAP SOME LASERS ON IT OR SOME SHIT BECAUSE WHY NOT OR EVEN BETTER GIVE IT A GIANT SWORD BECAUSE WE MAY AS WELL STRIVE FOR MAXIMUM RETARDED

god damn i hate robot animes

Ghibli's dramas would have been better as live-action movies
Movie for movie, Satoshi Kon is a better animator than Miyazaki
The angels and EVAs are the only good thing about NGE. Literally every character except maybe Misato is terrible.
Steins;Gate is a decent thriller and nothing else, ditto for Monster.

I think Hollywood is pretty good at following the three act structure. It might lead to incredibly formulaic writing, but even formulaic writing is better than shit writing. In some anime, and a lot of JRPGs as well, there's a premise which leads to a plot that goes on with no build up until it seems the writers realize they're in the final act and have to through in some universe destroying villain. In other words, the pacing is shit, and there's no rising action to build dramatic tension and keep the plot engaging. This makes the climax entirely unsatisfying. It's no surprise that the most popular anime are the ones that adhere to the three act structure well.

yeah I guess that's true, but with how huge their budgets are compared to anime, you'd think they could hire better writers.

I have never seen a Miyazaki movie. The artstyle on the posters just arouses an irrational hate in me for some reason - like it screams 'cringeworthy, fake and gay'.

Sol is pretty good
Didn't watch NGE because it looks pretty boring
Harems are ok as long as you use them as fillers between good shows
Most manga is better than their adaptations

Ghost In The Shell is strongly, strongly overrated. It has a lot of the same problems The Matrix has and I don't think it should get a pass because it came first.

Stands ruined Jojo
Aku no Hana had a anime good adaptation and I loved the rotoscoping. It made things feel uncomfortable and eerie unlike the manga which looks like it should be comedy.
Anime catering to normalfags outside of Japan is a mistake and we're paying for it. The original creators and companies don't even make that much off of them.
Tumblr is as good of a source for fanart as Pixiv is as long as you know how to use it (ie: Get XKIT and use filters)
Naruto is the new Dragonball and the series is just as good.
I think 13-15 episodes is the perfect length for most anime.
Fairy Tail is better than One Piece.
More anime need to use hip-hop music and hip-hop style beats.
I'm fine with CG in anime and I like it when the people doing it know what they're doing. (Majin Bone, Bubuki Buranki etc)
SMT4 should have got an anime instead of Devil Survivor and P4 shouldn't have gotten a second one.

I do like watching an anime with the English dub sometimes. If I enjoy the dub that is. Fuck anyone who says otherwise.

KLK is better than TTGL
KLK had more developed characters. I still don't know what Simon likes other than drilling, since the only thing that makes him happy is seeing Kamina and No Personality.
SoL is the best genre
This is hardly unpopular.

probably because I am older now, and this isn't to be pretentious, but I a appreciate mostly just seinen stuff when it comes to anime/manga since I can personally relate to a lot of it because of not only more mature concepts but because I have legit done bad shit in life and seinen are more likely to cover that type of stuff
You realize seinen means "aimed at adults", right? It's obviously because you're older.

Colton Williams

It's no surprise that the most popular anime are the ones that adhere to the three act structure well.
One Piece
Dragon Ball
three act structure

Though you're clearly missing the point of those things. Western RPGs have similar structures because it's about exploring and not about a story, and those shows are obviously not meant to be for a plot.

Original shows are pretty much always better than adaptations

These. Are these even unpopular? I'm not one to say "the source material is always best", and I'm not even one to say "adapations should adhere strictly to the source material", but this is generally the case because most adaptations in general try to recreate the original without fully utilizing the medium they're in.
