I'm going to try and explain human interaction over opinions.

I can hate a show for whatever reason and I legitimately mean any reason. If you hate shows that are popular because they are popular, I wont argue with you because you can have that opinion. If your criteria for a good anime is that it isn't popular, and this anime is popular, it doesn't make sense for me to argue with you because 1. People have set different criteria for what makes an anime good, and 2. It's your opinion. You may find that silly because personally, I wouldn't hate something because it's popular, but it isn't silly at all (which is my opinion). It's just whatever. People have different tastes so who cares.

That being said, I do feel like some people just hate things because they find it cool. But again, people have different tastes so who are we to care. If hating that anime makes them feel cooler, I say that's great because I want you to feel cool. We might not find it cool though, but that's our opinion. If that person is trying to appeal to what we find cool, then we can ask the question: Is it working? If not, then that shows you two have different opinions so whatever. That person will have to change his opinions to appeal to yours if that is his goal.

When you see people arguing over an anime, you can think of it as "these people are arguing over an opinion that came from different criteria because their opinion over what criteria makes an anime good is different." They're arguing over an opinion of an opinion and they'll get no where (which is my opinion). How do you argue whether an anime is good when you have different criteria for what makes an anime good?

So when I see that, I try to understand that it's an opinion of an opinion. I don't care to make you believe in my opinions or what criteria makes my opinion what it is, so whatever. It's complicated. Even what I've said is full of many of my opinions that you may not agree with, so you wont agree with this response. What can you do?

I tend to hate mainstream things but I hate them genuinely because they piss me off. I actually enjoyed watching SAO since the action was good, but the characters I can't sympathise with at all. If any main character died I wouldn't care at all.

I don't mind people hating on something if they have legitimately constructive reasoning behind their criticism, and rather than just make a statement they explain 'why' they hate it. If they're just saying '*insert thing* is shit' then, while they're not wrong for disliking the thing in question, it does get a bit tiresome since they're not really adding anything to the discussion.

To be honest.... this is the first time I've ever seen anyone rage so illogically because they liked a show. It scares me. To think we've not bred this kind of behavior out, yet.


That Darwinist statement is offensive, especially since you're religious.

But heres probably a few AOt faults:

All eren does is scream. He's utterly 1D.

The world had advanced tech, so instead of living in the sea, underground or in a space station, they decided to build. .. large walls . I mean thats outdated even in China, which built the great wall.

electricity didn't survive. People didn't try rebuilding tech... and it's been 300 years

They know how to kill titans but didn't invent a sniper blade that can cut titans necks from a distance

So their propulsion systems use compressed specialized air. That means they have a lab that can synthesize chemicals at a precise level. They never tried inventing biochemicsl weapons against titans?

Why not dig a large trench around the walls and when titans fall in, do away with them easily with long sabers...

I agree with you

Every time I see someone rant about how much they hate a popular TV show or anime, I can't help but question their motives. Then, sometimes there are outright hate band wagons that people jump on (SAO).

I'm much more likely to take an opinion seriously if it is positive, than if it is the same regurgitated hate. I'm not saying that the series you guys are slamming is groundbreaking or anything, but deserving of such hate? Nah.

I mean, it's cool if you don't like something.... but to me these guys just look like they are trying too hard to be cool.

Am I the only one who has been thinking this? I seriously feel like I'm the only one who isn't buying into this nonsense.


I find it sad that you're quick to dismiss someone who doesn't like something as "trying to be cool." I mean, maybe if you were sitting here having a good convo about SAO and I come along saying, "SAO is shit, such a fucking trash anime" then I could see where you're coming from. However, if someone was asked their opinion and they say the didn't like a show and gave reasons why, would that still mean they're trying too hard to be cool?

Edit: Just read your comment clarifying that the second scenario you wouldn't consider hating to look cool, so I apologize for making a false assumption. Just from your first comment I thought you literally classified any hate as trying to be cool.

I don't hate any anime. I might not love watching something, but I won't hate or hate on any anime. If anything, I would simply say that I don't much care for it.

i didn't read the manga

but I mean dante is exclusively commenting on the anime, about it being almost faultless or something, or that no one is pointing out its faults and just saying "it has faults" so I thought I'd point a few out

Is SAO as bad as I make it out to be. Nah. But I love exaggerating its horribleness for comedic effect. So I guess I am a hater because its funny.

Because they will be seen as another random hater and they're not special, saying the show is bad is wrong considering in reality, it's achieved the complete opposite.


Just because you quoted him does not mean he's obligated to reply. An invitation to a challenge can merely be turned down, and there's nothing wrong with that. He can hate the show for any reasons he wants and you know what? As long as he actually feel those feelings, even a primordial feeling of disgust to undiluted love, they're all valid. Because it is his opinion. You're right. Opinion doesn't change fact, and factually supported opinions are the best, but we're not talking race or religion here. We're talking something as mundane and non life changing as what we find entertaining.


BAM! You got that right. It's just an opinion on a show. I can't believe the insanity over AOT and SAO. I better go watch them both again and get a more recent comparison (time to binge watch for a week)

Honestly, idk if either has rewatch value. Maybe the 1st season of SAO...

AoT im not sure. It feels so one-time-ish.
