No, I like hearing the opinions of others. I like having a wide range of knowledge about a show and I'm able to draw my own enjoyment from that.

Shows like Naruto can be better appreciated when you've realized the good and bad points. You know when they're wasting your time, when the show is filling a quota or padding for time, and when the story is a little too awkward or forced. You know when they hit the high points and when the audience is at the edge of their seats.

I don't like show spoilers, but a good review is always important to me. More so than a spoiler.

Nisekoi apparently has not ended during it's Manga run. Knowing that, I dropped the Anime. The plot doesn't sustain interest very well, so I don't need to watch the show. When the show ends I'll pick it up, and judge it their. Sometimes things to on too long, sometimes they're short enough.

The glory of some shows are best analyzed over and over and over and over.

No. I go for anime that catch my interest without a second thought and I don't watch something I don't like even if everyone else likes it.

I rarely check other people's opinions on an anime. Some things others see as flaws might not be flaws for me.

So you didn't think Orihime was stupid until someone pointed it out? I feel like something is very wrong about that x)


Yes like TheAncientOne said, I had those thoughts subconsciously until online forums and peers brought them to light.
In the end I can admit it's pretty wrong for my opinion of her to change because of someone else, but it really did ruin my appreciation for the show : /

Sometime it ruins it, sometime it did not. People may complain about Sword Art Online but all my family love it since it is like our MMO wet dream ( except the dying for real part ). Similar case apply to Log Horizon as well incase people start saying it is overrated in the future lol.

But some anime experience did got ruined by the online opinion of it such as Infinite Stratos, i know that Ichika is dense but in season 1 i wasn't bothered a lot by it, season 2 comes and people start complaining about him being dense just become more painfully apparent that i started facepalming and press pause when he goes on with his denseness.

The idea for this thread was another thread called ''Anime you know aren't great but like anyway?''.

To me, the question makes it seem like you can't enjoy anime like Naruto to your full extent, because other people pointed out it's flaws, so you have to keep that in mind when watching it. There are so many people out there criticizing anime, and stops at nothing to point out every flaw.

I think it's pretty safe to say that opinions influences a lot of people's experience watching anime. Not just ''other people'' though. You yourself probably have developed a criticizing mind after watching so much anime, so you might drop anime faster than you normally would, because they had ''flaws'' that turned you away.

Do you think you would enjoy anime more if you didn't know other people's opinion about it? Or if it was your first time watching anime, every time?

Ha, great that I happened upon this just after explaining my experience with SAO - which has also been brought up here so I see - in another thread.

In that case, I was very ill and bed-ridden when I watched SAO - it was also one of the first anime I saw. Because of these factors I was already super-sensitive to all of the ongoings of the first few episodes and, with a past in MMORPG's was drawn in like a fly to honey. After watching episodes I was generally just captivated by the world in a bit of a daze and it wouldn't be long before I went onto the next one anyway. It's only while getting through the second half, and in the period after I finished it all, that I started to hesitate about it, and when I happened upon critical feedback of it I really found myself agreeing with so much of what they were saying.

The bottom line is that your experience of something is greatly shaped by subjective factors and totally random ones like the context you're watching it in (if you're sick, happy or distracted, if you're tired or are eating a really tasty pizza, or what the fuck ever). I love to read other opinions on a show that really say something, because whether I agree or not they really tend to help me build a more concrete, independent and clear view on what I just saw. Sure it may deconstruct my initial immersion, but my first watchthrough will have already consumed much of that anyway.
