So, what about that one anime that EVERYONE seems to love to hate, the one that people write ESSAYS about on how this anime is the prime example of how the industry is going down the tubes and Japan doesn't know what people want anymore...and yet, you kind of like it.

Be it as a guilty pleasure, or you genuinely like it for what it is, which anime do you like that everyone else seems to hate?

For me, best example is Samurai Flamenco.

...which I admit is kind of cheating on my part since I was a fan of tokusatsu even before the show aired.

The show I felt was overall great in re capturing the feel and zaniness of the henshin hero genre. The various types of heroes, the monsters (really can't have tokusatsu without them!), and some nice introspective themes in there as well. Yes, I do think it doesn't all come together as well as it could have been, and yes there are some gaping plotholes in the end. But personally, I feel there's more hits then misses.

Because let's be honest: Western superheroes as of late have been all about becoming grimdark-superserious since the 80's. Seeing them take the serious approach is already kind of a cliche. Japanese heroes have always erred on the side of zany, even with its more serious entries.

I was GLAD the show didn't go the direction of Japanese Kick Ass. Because honestly, there's not much material you can get from that without the show becoming really boring.

Also, CR's SF thread was to me a shining example of how starting a "General Tokusatsu" thread would apparently be a bad idea.

I like Tsukihime. To this day, I think people dislike it because they were told to.

Edit: I also liked Irregular bla bla bla when everyone was mad at it, but it seems to have earned peoples love on its own at this point ><

Probably Elfen Lied. I get asked this a lot...but personally is one of my favorite series. I didn't like that recent Brynhildr in the Darkness show though.

Doesn't a thread like this one exist already?

School Days i guess?

Day Break Illusion might be another one. I really liked the show and aside from some plot holes and stumbles along the way, i was impressed.

I also liked Samurai Flamenco despite all the craziness. But hey, at least I never knew what to expect.

I remember people complaining about it when it was on Toonami, but I really liked it. Apparently the dark setting and old school art style were off putting to some people.

Hmmm "hate" is such a strong word. I'm not sure if any of my favorites are legitimately "hated"

I do love moe shows though, and people are always complaining about how moe is the downfall of anime, so maybe one of those? Something like K-On or Lucky Star, perhaps? But for every person that "hates" them, there are quite a few fans of them as well.

Perhaps it's the same thing with idol anime like AKB0048?

That's all I can come up with off the top of my head though.

So many people tell me that they hate Baka and Test, though I really don't get why. Who could hate this face??!!

SAO. but you know what? fuck the haters. I don't care. I know it's not the best anime ever, it has flaws, it's a bad adaptation... but I still enjoyed it, and in the end, that's all that matters to me.

Love Live was amazing, and those who don't like it can just shut up and not watch it. so there!
