Gargantia, Fairytail, Bleach, Samurai Bride, Naruto, Fate Zero, Arata, Oreima 2, Sword Art Online...etc.

I'd say most of the Anime being simulcasted and that are popular with the community I consider garbage....
A better question would be which Anime's do you consider of quality.

But then i'm 29. My tastes are probably much more refined than the average teenager or young adult.

I didn't know that someone actually likes Samurai Brides or Arata Kangatari? But I agree with some of the rest(expect Gargantia because I love this and Fate/Zero because I think it's one of the best animes.)



I can't stand Naruto or Oreimo. And I can't stand SAO fanboys if that counts The show itself was average. And Bleach also, but it actually started out great. It just fell.

I don't think SAO was as absolutely amazing as most people make out It seemed kind of rushed...

Also, series like Dragonball Z and One Piece I didn't grow up with, so I don't find them particularly good now XD

I can't get into Fairy Tale either...

I will definitely give you that.

Bleach certainly had a good deal of promise its first season as did Death Note. Death Note ended with L as far as i'm concerned.
Unfortunately I grew up with fantastic anime. I say unfortunately because if it doesn't measure up to Anime series such as:

Macross, Appleseed, Cowboy Bebop, Berserk, Serial Experiment Lain, Ghost in the Shell, FLCL, Paranoia Agent, Samurai X, Dragon Ball(not z)...the list goes on...

I don't care for it.

Overly dramatic or bitterweet slice-of-life. I type this as I'm in the middle of Clannad lol

But honestly, I'm always drawn into a nice fun little show and it just drops all this drama crap on me. I don't see the appeal in it at all. I'm pretty easy to please, so I never end up hating the show, but who needs drama when you already have real life? It leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Smut counts for this as well.

For a specific example of a show I simply wasn't pleased with, probably Death Note. The Mystic Archives of Dantalian was really disappointing once I finished it, after seeing people give it awesome reviews. I'm pretty good about dropping shows that I'm not gonna like. I kinda wanna watch Guilty Crown to see what all the fuss is about lol

Also I haven't really seen any shounen long-runner aside from Gintama (except for Naruto, which I remember nothing about), so I don't much to say regarding those. I thought what little I've seen of Fairy Tail is pretty good.

Attack on Titan for me. Just can't see why people love that show so much.

Hataraku Maou-sama- not funny at all to me

Toradora- bored me

Pretty sure Samurai Bride wouldn't be considered a popular anime.

Also, that's a lot of anime to consider as garbage.

Yea honestly, anime like Toradora and Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo should not be so popular. They aren't bad but are way too goofy at times.

I think Code Geass is absurd.

Now I am going to run away very fast before anyone catches me.

What's wrong with being goofy?
