Both criticism and praise bring growth. Either one forces stagnation though.

You should never praise someone for doing the wrong thing, and you should never criticize someone for doing the right thing. The truth is not always sweet, however a diet of pure sugar only causes obesity and diabetes.

So argue, complain, criticize! No circle jerking!


This, all the way

As long as there are giant robots blasting the hell out of each other, I will always enjoy anime.

There's positive and there's negative criticism. People give negative criticism for various reasons. One of the reasons is because they enjoy complaining (these would be tittled "It's so bad that is good"). If that's their way of being entertained then let them be. I personally wouldn't put much weight on another's opinion of an anime because I have my own individual taste and enjoyment. When I check what is available, I choose what I want to watch.

I lost interest in anime for the longest time. I rewatched DBZ now and then but that was literally it lol. In September 2014, out of the blue, I noticed my friend had one of the openings of Blue Exorcist in his music library and I told him I watched that show a looong time ago. I only ever watched like 5 animes in my life. It has been yeaaars since I laid eyes on anime, but then he told me to watch Sword Art Online. I finished SAO... I realized the beauty of anime and went on a huge spree of anime as of late. I can't even remember most of them lol


That's my problem with anime as of late. less and less of it is even memorable.

Every one has their own opinions and tastes. Usually its about the anime not following the source material if it is an adaptation of a LN or VN if there are any complaints. Otherwise, just sit back and enjoy what you decide to watch

I enjoy anime nuff said.

I think I'm the easiest person to satisfy when it comes to anime. So long as the story interests me I will overlook all sorts of problems others may have with the show.

Anime is much better when you aren't getting caught up in little details in my opinion.

I really enjoy anime. I do see people hating on shows but I usually just give it a shot unless I know it's absolute crap (Diabolik Lovers ahem ahem totally not hating). But I usually pick what I want to watch based on what I think looks cool not others. Also don't watch anime reviews for that reason.

A lot of anime produced isn't necessarily great or even good, but that's what makes the really good ones special.

Yeah I like anime, it doesn't have to be perfect just entertaining. As long as it's fun I'm okay.

Coming from toxic forums (notably gaming ones) such as LoL and Halo, this community really doesn't give me a sense of negativity. These forums seem really cool, laid back and fun.

Let me put it this way... Anime is like everything.. haters and lovers! I watch based on my taste at the time. I think the problem is that most people are comparing recent anime to classics like Akira, Jin Roh, Ninja Scoll, and various other 90s anime. In my personal opinion (so don't get all mad if you don't agree!) I feel the 90s were a very good era for anime. A lot of good storylines mixed with decent animation. I just can't do some of the 80s or 70s animation, I just can't do it. I almost stabbed myself in the eye when I tired watching the first Gundam from 1979.

To be honest I haven't watched anime in over 10 years (Had a wife, wife hated me, I hated wife, I got a secret vasectomy to protect my bloodline, wife made home felt like Battle Of Helms Deep everyday, Wife threw away all my action figure collection, I tired to cook the wife's cat but I was too out of shape to chase it down, I left wife and now here I am ). I just started watching it again recently as I can FINALLY watch something in peace. Guess what, I fell in love with it all over again. Some are good and some are bad, watch what you like and enjoy it. We all watch anime for different reasons. For me anime is a very unique form of expression. I see it as another portal to enjoy someone's creation or inspiration. Watch away!

P.S. just be mindful of those anime that just don't make sense at all in the end (Again to me! it might have made sense to you.... but to me.......... ...... what just happened). Evangelion from the 90s anyone?
