No Game No Life

It's just not my cup of tea. The characters are highly unappealing to me.

I don't think it's bad, and might even be wiling to concede that it's good - I just personally don't like it.

Normally, the fact that other people love this show wouldn't bother me a single bit - but due to certain circumstances, it has annoyed me just a tad more than it usually would. Especially since it was the characters I disliked.

But that's fine since I like plenty of anime which are almost objectively bad lol (if such a thing existed, that is)



I actually semi enjoyed the show, but it definitely wasn't some amazing feat like people were making it out to be. There wasn't anything spectacular about it in my opinion.

I guess no game no life gets my vote too.

And for some weird reason people liked Gargantia. I thought it was the most boring random thing ever.

I don't dislike any anime. But that doesn't mean I love all of them, though. It's either I like it or I don't care for it.

I haven't seen any anime that i truly hate, i have definetely got biased opinions on some anime i haven't watched. Now i wouldn't say hate, but i just can't sit through the episodes as they are either boring or I hate 1-2 characters in the anime.

Another- I never understood why this was so popular. I never found it scary and what truly killed the series for me was that the characters were bland and forgettable(in my opinion). I'll admit the animation was nice and the series had a interesting concept, but the characters just ruined the whole series for me.
Sword Art Online- I also didn't understand the hype behind this series. Yeah the concept is great, but how it turned out did not sit well with me. SAO felt like it was going to be a 100+ series and I think it could have worked, but they added all the time skips to cram it into 14 episodes then went to a different game to finish out the last 11 episodes. Also the characters to me were forgettable and uninteresting. Again I did like some stuff about it such as the animation and soundtrack. I do have high hopes for Gun Gale(yes I know it's out I just have to start it)though.

I can't say I dislike any anime but there are some that I'm completely uninterested/indifferent to: Bleach, One Piece, Death Note (though I do like the real-life movies), Attack on Titan, No Game No Life, Free, KnB etc.

I just could never get into them. *shrugs*

One Piece (this is popular enough to have made it to 650 episodes and I want to know how on Earth that happened), seriously, The Simpsons hasn't even done that, and the Simpsons is older than I am. The other one is Attack on Titan, and almost every one of my friends who either doesn't like anime or doesn't have a lot of experience with it LOVES AoT. To me, the animation is lack luster, the characters are emotionless and forgettable, and at 25 episodes, they still haven't defined a viable endgame that doesn't involve them sending their entire army (hilariously limited as it is) to die against carnivorous beasts. I watched Black Bullet too, and there is just so much more to Black Bullet.

Free: Most of the characters piss me off. I can't do that many archetypes that piss me off at once.

Attack on Titan: It's not that I didn't like it, so much as I didn't love it as much as many did. It was good, but not the godsend that many made it out to be.

The big 3: Shounen just isn't my favorite genre, so I don't love these. I'm watching them, but slowly.

in the current season ALDNOAH makes me mad.


I second that, I hated the first 2 episodes, the last two were ok but beyond the action (which I don't place very highly at all on my list of things I look for) it really is pretty boring and the show has given me Zero reason to care about these characters.

Also two of Urobochi others works,
Pyscho-Pass- I enjoyed but it was nowhere near as good as people had claimed
Fate/zero- Same as Psycho-pass, it is good but nowhere near the level I expected it to be with all of the hype around it

Haven't seen madoka, I'll get around to it eventually, but urobochi shows are pretty have been pretty average for me I haven't hated them but I like them nowhere near as much as other people do. Both Aldnoah and Pyscho-Pass really just feel like the premise and story has been done before even if I couldn't point out specific examples (i could, atleast a few).

Gargantia is pretty good though, pretty lighthearted with fairly well developed characters.

TTGL- I enjoyed it quite a bit until after EP. 8 after that for my enjoyment it massive dive and after the time skip it took another,
and again action without caring about the charaters isn't gonna cut it.

Attack on Titan: The protagonist is so annoying. It totally killed whatever enjoyment I could have felt for the show because I spent the whole time wishing someone less annoying would become the main character.

K-On!: I don't understand why this is so popular. It's a typical moe show, and it might be good at what it does, but it was just too boring for me to finish.

I can't think of anything but then I tend to watch things that I expect to like and I'm only occasionally wrong (I usually do a bit of research at least and I seem to be good at reading between the lines on descriptions).

I wouldn't complain anyway, you can't like everything (well, maybe you could but most people don't).

It can be difficult to understand other people's tastes but I think accepting that and accepting that others will have different tastes is a good idea (it's not like it'd hurt you). That said, I like quite a few things that are being made these days so maybe it's easier when you're part of a larger target audience (rather than having more niche tastes, within the niche that anime already is).

I do find it amusing when people say things like "how can you like that show?" then mention things that I like about the show as if they're bad things. It's funny how weird and varied we humans are.


I couldn't agree more. Although I'm not going to act like I haven't seen a popular anime that I'm not interested in because I have. So my list of "anime that I watched but didn't like but everyone else does" is:

Blue Exorcist- This is the most recent one I could think of that I had watched. One of my real life friends recommended it to me saying he really liked it and when I had got the time I watched the 1st 10 episodes. I thought it was okay, I noticed a lot of the shonen tropes being used but for some reason it never interested me. I never disliked it, I was just apathetic towards the whole thing.

Free- This one's kind of cheating since I've never watched it but I think if I did I wouldn't like it. I know a lot of girls and guys like the show and I can respect that but it's just something that doesn't interest me.

Sword art Online- Mentioning this is becoming a cliche at this point so I'll quote what I said in a previous forum, "Gonna get a lot of hate/love for this but my most disapointing anime was Sword art Online. A lot of my real life friends keep telling me to watch it cause of how good it was and once I got into it, I was mind blown by how much I didn't like it. The pacing was terrible, skipping months at a time, the fights were too short and spaced too far apart to be a noteworthy action series, the characters weren't fleshed out or developed enough to be a good character study, the poor pacing and shallow character writing keep it from being a standout romance, and the fight animation was standard at best. I understand why a lot of people like it and I can respect their opinion but for me, I thought it was just a great premise with terrible execution.Here's hoping season 2 fairs a lot better for me."
