I can't stand Oreimo, KissxSis, or any incest story. No idea why Japan is so obsessed with them.

I also can't stand SAO. The romance between Asuna and Kirito was so forced, and I really wish I never watched Damsel Asuna and OP Kirito... All in all, I think it was waaaayyyyy overhyped.

I don't mind certain shows, as long as there isn't useless T&A every few seconds. I dropped R+V, HDxD, HOTD, and Freezing because of that (although I like their manga counterparts).

If i don't like it i don't watch it, no reason to be butthurt about the success of series that i find ripe. For example i don't like the old anime happiness from where Watarase jun comes from, in fact i haven't even watched it. So why would i chose him as an avatar? well he is cute as fudge!

The Monogatari series. IN MY OPINION,I think it's highly overated.

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.


Since when is Samurai Bride considered popular?

Anyways, on topic - I'd have to say K-on and SAO. I just don't see how they got so popular.

One Piece. Way too long. Nothing much happens in an episode, The only good arc was the CP9 arc.

Fairy tail - Boring as Fuck! Feels like One piece with Magical powers.

SAO - It was not bad but I don't know what is there for all the popularity.

Hmmm, well, since I'm not exactly one who keeps track of what's popular and what's not, kind of difficult for me to say. But I do know there's at least two series I think stink that the general populace or at least a big group think are great.

First one is the less controversial on in my opinion: Neon Genesis Evangelion. Yup, I'm one of those and I know there's quite a few of us out there who dislike this so it's not really a big surprise. But I don't like it, hate the characters, the storyline is pretentious yet ludicrously shallow and you can clearly track where things started going to absolute hell around the production. Great start, got me super involved and then they absolutely ruined it. The Rebirth movies are the only ones I've marked as "Never gonna see" on Anime Planet and it's like to stay that way.

The second one I hate, and this has drawn some ire in the past, is Zeta Gundam. I HATE this series so much. As far as I'm concerned, it's the worst Gundam has managed to produce and compared to the great works of MS Igloo, War in the Pocket and even the original Gundam it just pales to a crisp, snow white. ZZ is better in every way. Yeah, and I mean that.

1. I agree, wholeheartedly. :D

2. I get that; I do. However, it stands to reason that Zeta Gundam was/is critically-acclaimed for a reason, and one of the BIG reasons is that it got people interested in Gundam after the flop that was the original MSG. It's funny you mention ZZ Gundam because many people hated it (Tomino was brought back for the second half to help fix the poor ratings it was getting because the new writers tried to make it funny and lighthearted).

As for me: POKEMON.

I still, to this very day, CAN NOT fathom how it got so popular! I watched one episode of the cartoon when it was airing in the USA back in the late '90s, but I was a teenager so I thought a lot of the show's content was for little kids (like that Card Captor Sakura). Then they made Digimon and Yugioh--I was like, "Wasn't Pokemon enough?"

A smart decision, IMO. I recently completed it in a hurry after Daisuki pulled it from their site but before they pulled it from their YouTube channel, and would have had a hard time completing it if the episodes I had remaining (around 30) were the unfunny comedy that was those initial episodes.

Black Butler. Can't stand it, and I've definitely given up on trying.

Also, I'd like to include SAO fan boys. SAO itself was alright, but I can't stand the fans more often than not.

Oh, I know a lot of people disliked ZZ which I never quite understood but again, I never understood why people really liked Zeta either so maybe I'm just screwy in the head. My favorite Gundam so far (seen far from everything yet, just the UC timeline) is Victory Gundam which should give you an idea of just how little of a typical Gundam fan I am.
