Ugh... Yes the fanbase is huge,but so what?! Watch it because YOU want to watch it. AOT personally has the best plot and animation I have ever seen. That is what I base my review on, not how many people like it. It is very very popular for a reason, so think about that. Does the plot not sound intersting to you? And if not, fair enough but don't slate it just for it's popularity. Give it a chance <3 <3


So you are saying the plot is the best while others are saying there is no plot/story at all? hmm, interesting.

your watching it for all the wrong reasons It's like Highschool of the Dead not a show about plot it's about mindless fun. But if you want deep plot and all that go watch Fate/Zero it's nothing but plot


no, Monogatari is nothing but plot. Fate/Zero was a masterpiece of plot, action, characters, drama, music.. pretty much everything.

Of course is someone dislikes this show that is what they will say. And everyone has different opinions, but I do not agree that there isn't a plot. You have to watch it to understand there is, and watch it openly not with the intent of hating it. Makes a big difference.

I totally get what you mean. I went into FLCL not thinking it was gonna be good. I honestly had to watch it 3 times till i liked it.

Masterpiece might be a stretch Evangelion was a masterpiece Akira was a masterpiece Cowboy bebop was a masterpiece Fate/zero was ok even good but had it's boring parts.

Back on subject don't listen to the fanbase watch the show and make up your own mind. If you don't watch a show because of the fanbase then that makes you as big a sheep as them

I would like to start by saying that I do not hate Attack on Titan. In fact, I don't dislike it. I just see major problems.

My biggest issue is episode... I believe 8. The one with Mikasa's backstory. That episode had horrible timing. I felt like Usain Bolt going full speed but then running into a wall. I think that flashback should have been in episode 4 to keep the pace smooth.
Which brings me to my next major issue: pace. I don't have much of a problem with a slow pace. I just feel like the series go from a slow pace to a fast pace in rapid succession. It's like riding a car where the driver floors the gas and then floors the brake and does this over and over again. The pace of Attack on Titan feels like that so much that it can cause carsickness.
My last major issue is blood. Practically every kill results in some sort of blood fountain or make blood rain from the sky. In other words, the amount of blood is way too much. I feel like that the battle scenes are about the blood rather than the battles themselves, which really takes away from the experience. Example? That one guy that bit his tongue. I've bitten my tongue pretty hard to cause it to bleed. For that much blood to come from biting one's tongue, you'd have to completely bite your tongue in half. Conclusion? Even outside of a battle, Attack on Titan's love for blood rivals a vampire's.

I will say one thing about the animation style. While I'm not a fan of it, it fits with the setting. I give the visuals (except the fact that humans are 95% blood) a pass.

Again, not saying Attack on Titan is bad, just overrated.

Eva was a boring monster-of-the-weak mecha anime until the ending, which was a bunch of pretentious babbling. Akira, I don't remember being all that impressive, but it's been about 15 years since I've seen it. and I've never seen bebop, so I can't really comment.

I completely agree.

Please explain why you hate AOT in detail.

I absolutely hate this show with a passion because of the fan base. If you ask anyone, "what show should i watch?", the only answer you will get right now is AOT. When so many people recommended me Sword Art Online, i was a bit hesitant to watch it. I kept asking myself, "Is all the hype worth it?" Well, the answer really was no. Don't get me wrong, SAO was great. Up until episode 17. Then it was probably one of the worst pieces of shit shows i've seen. You can almost never find someone saying something bad about these hyped up animes cus there are too many little fan girls screaming about how great it is. And if you ever do find something bad about it, the fans get sooo defensive. Now im not saying AOT is the worst piece of shit ever either, i've never watched a single second, not planning on it.

I also really hate how the characters look. What's with the eyes? When i go through the little pictures of the episodes, i'm always saying, "what's wrong with there face?" or "why are they so american?" hahaha





You should feel that way about every fandom. Because every fandom had its elitist, insane, sane, selfish, sympathetic, and so on. Yes the fanbase is crazy but it the same with the other overrated fandoms. Fandoms are what fandoms do.

I love this series very much.

eh I really enjoy this show, sure it has its flaws, but so does every anime in existence.
you're free to "hate" whatever you want and complain all you want.
but it's not the show or the fan girl's fault you're getting so irritated, it's your fault for letting yourself get so angry lol.

I just want this message delivered as well:
DON'T HATE AN ANIME THAT YOU HAVE NEVER WATCHED!!!!
If you do that, you lack any form of my respect. You can be picky about your likes and what you watch, but don't be picky about trying to watch something. I've had my share of anime that I thought would not appeal to me but I found out I actually enjoyed. Here's a list of some examples (this only applies to me):

Stella Academy
Attack on Titan (I was peer pressured)
Hentai Prince and the Stony Cat
Love Lab
Sound of the Sky
Oreimo
My Little Monster
Mashiroiro Symphony
Arcana Famiglia
Accel World
Hyouka
Saki
True Tears
Bodacious Space Pirates
Severing Crime Edge
Bakemonogatari
Valvrave
Gargantia
Puella Madoka Magica
Mystic Archives of Dantalian
Dusk Maiden of Amnesia

Basically, these didn't appeal to me at first. But I gave them a try and was pleasantly surprised. You could end up changing your mind too.

There are plenty of problems with the show. It can be ridiculous and illogical. There's the art work. And of course, some of the dialog is cringe worthy.

But the show is still enormously entertaining.

It has interesting concepts, characters, and world building. So, to each his own. You can hate it if you want, but most of us still have lots of fun watching it despite it's flaws.

I get annoyed at how fast a lot of the characters die and I find the titans more than a bit odd looking. I still find it fairly enjoyable and am unsure how you can hate it based on your impression of people that watch it.
