That's why I said dislike instead, I mean, obviously there's going to be motivation for any debate. And yeah lol, that's why I posted.


To be honest, and you don't have to listen to my advice here, a particularly good place to post some opinions on it (if you haven't already) would be a fanservice topic that's been trending since it's addressing the question of whether fanservice is a bad thing or not. http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-813455/is-fan-service-a-bad-thing

My personal opinion on it is that, if there is fanservice, I can tolerate it if it's light/silly or if it's so over the top that it's hilarious. If it's not one of those things, then I'll probably dislike it too much. From that angle, I think I can see where you're coming from with not enjoying certain shows.

From what it sounds like, he just really hates anyone who could get attracted to a character who isn't 3D. God forbid anyone have fun. And he seems to honestly believe that any show with fanservice in it, even if it's not a ridiculous amount, has no value if he doesn't personally find the plot fun or enjoy the characters; the rest of us are all indecent human beings who get attached to characters and keep to ourselves.

Well I gotta go now. Have to go fill my weekly quota on wanking to real life people so that I can keep being a decent human being.

It does come off like that, but I'm not going to dwell on the issue.

Also, I really like your icon, HellaStrider.

Haha I thought that was the core of his issues. Validating fanservice/whether there even is any in this show won't change his mind that he believes there is fanservice and the fans who might be enjoying it should be persecuted. Hilarious as fuck that he thinks he's being hated on by you for trying to slowly explain it to him and that he thinks no one will defend themselves if he calls them a cunt for a specific behavior. And same to you.

Yeah. I know debating doesn't always change people's minds or anything, but I do like having my opinion known as well if it differs.

I mean, technically speaking, not all fanservice is even sexual. If fanservice is just something the creators do to please fans and maybe give them a nod, then things like particularly great fight scenes or even little cameos could count.

Still, it's not really an issue of mine what someone thinks in the end as long as they're not just randomly slinging mud at people for liking things.

You have a good argument about fanservice, but he seems to be more concerned about condemning fangirls/fanboys that any other discussion is a veil to disguise the fundamental flaw in his mindset. Why does he think fans are automatically moronic / indecent human beings for liking this show, whether for the fanservice or any other reason? What is the personal offense he feels towards this behavior to call all of them out like this? Does he viciously attack all High School of the Dead fans as well as any other fanservice-laden show whether geared for males or females? I think this has much more to do with his misogynistic views (see c word and condescending "dear") and antipathy for otaku behaviors than the actual show itself, as he presented a very insubstantial review of the show to make up for the irrational hatred towards it.

I suppose that's also not too shocking of a theory.

Then again, Free! and fujoshi have been getting a lot more flak than just this, if that was CarboKill's intent, even if most of it isn't here on Crunchyroll. I have to say, things here at the very least have been balanced since there's a lot of people here willing to give it a chance even if it isn't their thing.

There's a blog on Tumblr that's even documenting some of the more absurd comments from otaku about how this show/fujoshi/women are ruining everything. http://mantearsflowingfree.tumblr.com/

Thanks for saying I had some decent points in there.

Really glad I decided to keep up with this one it's too funny.

This show keeps getting better and better with each episode!

My favorite part had to be the Rin and Haru moment, ha. He got a little too close for comfort. NotthatImindthat.

Rei turned out to be a bit of a goof ball, I thought he'd be very serious. Yet, not so much. haha.

I'm surprised, Gou got tired of looking at the boys muscles when they're trying on swimsuits. Ahaha. I'm really routing for the swim captain and her though, they'd be so adorable together.

A great episode, I can't wait for the next one!

The episodes just goes by too fast! I enjoy them too much and then poif.. They end QQ
I Find this show hilarious and at the same time serious, and i really think the one week wait is too much xD

Though i loved the rinxharu moment, not for the shipping but rin actually looked really ... I dont know.. Human? For a minute there. His facial expression showed personality for once instead of him always baring his fangs.
Yet another good episode ^^
