Don't like Cowboy Bebop, Full Metal Alchemist, Bleach, hated Clanned.

Mushi-Shi has to be the most boring anime ever made with the exception of Boys Over Flowers which was not only boring but needlessly vicious.

Don't get FLCL..what a mess of an anime.

Can't stand anything and I mean ANYTHING by studio Ghibli.

And subs are really better than dubs, for most anime.


FACEKEYBOARD. I DON'T THINK I LIKE YOU.

I agree with you on the subs and Mushi-Shi though, so you're slightly redeemed.

I really never could get into One Piece. I just don't like it.

All dubbed anime are better in the sense that i can laugh harder and marvel at the animation a lot more. I take the somewhat strange voices for granted and they out of sync lip-movement of the characters.

+ I can understand the jokes and even get some added nuances that seem to be missing in the japanse frame of mind.
+ Also i do not have to switch like i do during a tennis match between two players to see what is going on (subtitles, character speaks, subtile, explosion, subtile, character weeps).

- there are none..well none that make me change my mind

^I can definitely see your points BUT I disrespectfully disagree. Yes, I hate having to read like a librarian every single time I watch a anime and have to deal with subtitles. But the japanese language sounds so much more natural to me and I feel like a lot is missed if not watching the Japanese subs(such as Japanese jokes or even descriptions of what a japanese word means). Plus I even know they have to change up the original dialogue for the English translation to match the lips of the japanese characters more. That fact just makes me shiver. But I will also say there are a few anime that, without the English voices, would sound weird to me. I think I blame not liking dubs more on crappy English dubs than not liking dubs at all. I will say though that subs are my favorite. I haven't watched a dub of any anime in like six months hehe. Compare Eureka 7's dub and sub and I think you'll come to the dark side soon enough.

I agree. It was okay, but the ending really sucked. Yukiteru was a horrible main character, and Yuno was atrocious.

I liked Akise Aru, though, and some of the less seen characters.

Subtitles don't include meanings of words or jokes (usually), it just translates the language into text that you can read. They change the dialogue because they are translating it into a different language (duh). Even with subs, you won't get a pure translation of the language, it doesn't work like that. Learn Japanese if you want to know exactly what they are saying.

A lot of the anime's I see on different sites usually include the meaning of a word or describes what is in a certain Japanese food. I usually like seeing that so I can learn more about Japanese culture, so that's why I like those. And maybe I'm wrong about the translation thing. But I just remember hearing from somewhere some dubs change the original dialogue to fit with the movements of the character's mouths so it doesn't look as awkward when translating. I already knew the Japanese and English language don't translate well at times. I just didn't like the fact that I heard they would change original wording to match the character's mouth movements more. Example: how in Naruto they replaced 'you know?' or whatever he says in the original Japanese version with 'Believe it!' in the english translation just to sync the mouth movements better.

I meant official translations, not any form of fansubs. If you want to learn more about Japanese culture it's best you look elsewhere, like a book or online tutoring. Also, don't believe everything you hear

Gintama is the most overrated anime ever.
Angel Beats and Toradora are boring.
Chaos; Head is much better than Stein; Gate.
Blood-C is also better than Blood+.
The Melancholy of Haruchi Sizumiya and Spice and Wolf are "meh" shows at best.
TWGOK is not that great of a show.
Male harem leads are masters of resisting temptation and should not be looked down upon.

And for my unpopular anime opinion: "The Endless Eight" episodes from Haruhi Suzumiya should not be hated. They fit PERFECTLY with the feel of the series. I know they are annoying and I probably couldn't watch them again. But geez I'm glad I watched them all. Now bring on a season 3 pleaseeee!!!
I got your back on this one. It'd be hard for me to watch four hours of endless eight again, but I'm glad I watched them and in my opinion, as well as my wife's opinion, they are actually a work of art(and by that I mean that they have artistic value, not necessarily that I am extolling their grandiose virtue).

Considering how much we are subject to literal use, reuse, and reuse of artwork in most anime to cut down on the amount of stuff that people actually have to animate and to fill time with, I think it was kind of a bold statement that they took the endless eight plot and decided to animate it over eight episodes, but used very little(if any) reused artwork, for the entire thing, which you know has to be tempting considering how the story goes. It was almost a middle finger to the rest of the anime industry. I mean look at your average Naruto episode and see how much art is reused spent in pointless flashbacks, sometime from the SAME episode.

Endless eight is pretty much forced to rehash the same events over and over again with little deviation due to the nature of the story, but they take great care with making sure that even though the events are near identical, much of the minute detail is different from episode to episode and the animation isn't exactly cheap looking. Its comical irony at its finest.

Now don't get me wrong endless eight was probably a pretty dumb move from a money making entertainment perspective as it is grueling to watch, made the second run feel empty of material, and most people can't appreciate that type of art, but it was awesome from an artistic standpoint.
