I didn't enjoy watching Fullmetal Alchemist at all. And I dropped Brotherhood because it bored me so much. Since the latter has been one of the highest rated anime for years now, and the former is still quite popular that's probably a controversial opinion


Out of things I like that other people don't? That's kind of hard to tell. According to Anime Planet though I rated The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan and Gourmet Girl Graffiti significantly higher than the average.

GATE is one of my favorite, but others called it unoriginal and rehashed content. / Everybody seemed to like Steins; Gate, but I can't force myself to watch more than 5 episodes in, tried on multiple occasions. (An anime that I couldn't watch more than 5 mins... Green Green.)

SAO isn't that bad guys. I understand the flaws, I understand why people don't think highly of it, I understand why many think it's overrated, but worst anime ever? Please.


It's not the worst ever, but the hype to payoff ratio might be.

Sword Art Online. I don't give a damn what those bits of trash say, they're only jumping on the bandwagon.

Like flipmane said. GATE was probably one of the best anime of 2015.

Meanwhile from the same year I had to literally force myself to get to episode 6 of OPM, then promptly dropped it.

I really like the Kancolle and Granblue Fantasy, which a lot of people seem to hate. And One Punch Man was ok, it wasn't all that great.

I also never got the hype for Pokemon or Yu-gi-Oh...but I think that's because I am too old. People got into that when they were kids and carried the passion into adulthood.

btw - isn't the controversy with Yosuga no Sora about the canon twincest? I didn't think it was explicit, though, but people are offended by the concept of it...

It was quite explicit. You don't have to watch very much to see that for yourself (jump to around 20:20):

OniAi was a weird mix of laughs and cringe. The twist was spoiled long before I watched though it was only because of that I did lol

I keep hearing Yosuga no Sora is basically hentai, but Right Stuf lists it as 16+

I bought it on sale, so I will see.


Maybe you can get a refund. i wouldn't want it even if it was free. I hate it that much.

I dropped Kill la Kill halfway through. It was okay at first but the over-the-top fan service nonsense got old fast.

Don't know if this rates as "controversial," but I liked Myriad Colors Phantom World. I only mention it because it seems to have a reputation for being shit.

I'm not too smart and easily distracted by bright colors and silly fanservice, and the teddy bear was cool. So hey, I finished the season, which is more than I can say for SAO.

-Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso (Your Lie in April) was at best, very mediocre for me. It was far too melodramatic, and stretched out some bits for way too long, but despite that it didn't fully flesh out most of its cast. I wish we got more screen time of the main couple (especially the Kaori; it felt like we learned more about Tsubaki than her), because I honestly didn't care about them too much.

-One Punch Man was good, and I can definitely see why people praise it so much, but I didn't think it was a masterpiece. I personally thought Mob Psycho was a LOT better.

-I really didn't like the characters in Macross F, especially Sheryl.. From what I remember (because it's been a good few years since I last saw it) the main cast were involved in this really stupid love triangle, and they make some pretty poor decisions.But the music was really good and the actual story line was decent.

-Rokka no Yuusha was just plain bad. The whole "mystery" aspect of the show was really stupid (oh my goodness was the ending terrible) and the entire cast could jump off of a cliff for all I care. I remember everyone saying it was a decent show but I thought it was shit tbh.

-Yuri no Ice made me wanted to groan in frustration sometimes tbh. Mostly because of the fanbase (this is like the most toxic fanbase I've seen in SUCH a long time, especially on Tumblr) but I did have quite a few problems with the show itself (mainly how I didn't really like the two leads that much, and I had problems with relationship but I'll just leave it at that before someone mauls at me).

Uhhh so that's enough about the negatives. I guess I'll talk about some less popular anime that I actually like :

-I tend to enjoy a lot of idol or slice-of-life shows that would be considered by most people as 'trash'. Mainly because I'm idol trash (and trash for cute characters doing cute things).

-Mobile Fighter G Gundam was really cheesy and predictable for the most part but I loved it?? I didn't think it was the greatest thing ever (shining finger still makes me laugh so much honestly) but it was such an enjoyable watch.

-I have a soft spot for shonen sports anime. This isn't because I ship any of the characters together (which is all people do with these shows, unfortunately) but because I just like seeing a group of people work very hard towards a goal. Seeing the cast for so hard (sometimes like their life depends on it) is just kinda...cool? Idk how to describe it, really.

-(a more recent one) I've been enjoying this season's A Sister's All You Need (Imouto Sae Ga Ireba Ii). I usually don't like little sister shows (well this technically isn't one) but this is actually a pretty fun show if you don't take it too seriously. But everyone seems to hate it lol.

Note: I need to stop procrastinating.
