What is your unpopular anime opinion?
(for example, your opinion on an anime that the majority would disagree with)

I don't like Fairy tail.

Anime was a mistake. The early 2000s had hope. But now its nothing but crap :(

Early 2000s.

New anime is largely a hyper-stylized shell of what it used to be in my opinion. Gurren Laggan and Space Dandy are sort of my exceptions to the formula. But when I think of things like Cowboy Bebop, Wolfs Rain, Death Note, Gungrave, Samurai Champloo, Gundam Wing, and Ruroni Kenshin I remember deep character development and artistic integrity. I totally agree with you save for a few exceptions.

I guess my unpopular opinion is that I found Akame ga Kill! to be atrocious. Completely predictable and in my opinion lazy with the writing.

This is because you haven't watched enough old anime. There was a lot of crummy anime from the 1970s-1990s that were clearly made just to sell stuff to kids. Watch some of the "Creamy Mami" wannabes and you'll understand. If an idea hit it big, there was usually at least one show that would come out that looked similar.

If you want solid character development, might I suggest "Oniisama e..." (Dear Brother). I felt the ending was rushed, but it was really good up until the final episode or so.

Ooh I have a lot.

Filler for long running shows is 90% unwatchable trash not worth watching.

Same thing for anime's that follow the manga but with "original" endings

Naruto is better than One Piece.

Accel World is better than Sword Art Online

Its been too long since the anime for Bleach ended & I don't care anymore if they continue it.

I like the Beserk movie trilogy more than I like the original anime

Death Note would have been perfect if it ended at episode 25

Revenge themed anime's need to stop shoving "REVENGE BAD" trope down viewers throats, I swear every single fucking one does this.

Aku no Hana sucked because of its art style, in the manga it had a ugly story but beautiful art which provided contrast, the anime was an ugly story with ugly art with no redeeming features.

Anime should be classified by its art style & language not by its country of origin & ethnicity of its original creators = Japanese.

and finally
This topic should be in the anime section not in general discussion

My main viewing with anime starts from 1995-ish - 2007. I can tell you almost everything you'd want to know about anything really. But I also feel like that era was a bit of a golden age of anime in many respects. I am completely unfamiliar with anything from the 80's and 70's.

I thought this thread was for unpopular opinions.
Posted 1/17/17 , edited 5 days ago
This is not necessarily unpopular, but it is unpopular among the actual anime community.

I think Naruto is a legitimately great show. I don't take the fillers into account when I say this, though. Maybe it's just because I'm young, but I actually think it has a great story and a lot of kickass fights. Many of the side characters are awesome and the world is very interesting. It gets too much criticism imo. Is it as good as something like Hunter x Hunter? No. But let's be real, it's insanely hard to be as good as HxH.

I don't really like One Piece. The animation is bad, though it's not all about animation obviously. But for me, it's just weird. I've seen a little bit of it and it can be funny, but still, just too weird for my tastes. To be honest, though I consider myself an anime fan, I kinda don't like most anime, as most anime these days is little girls in middle school doing little girl shit, like playing the tuba or ping pong. I wanna see some hardcore shit, like Hellsing Ultimate! That shit was a fucking masterpiece!

Naruto was a great show. Now Shippuden, or however the hell you spell it, was awful. God awful.

There are some series which is just crappy drama though, i personally like emo style just because its so funny watching people dress up in black and with long black hair stretching out to cover your forehead. But there are some subtle animes which covers human connections like Area 88, its about a pilot who gets tricked into signing a contract to serve for 3 years in a war struck country. So it has to be subtle aswell, it cant be about who can make the most sobby music, it has to make sense otherwise it is just tear jerkers (not to sound rude).

But basically watch anything worthy or good is my suggestion, cool and fun series. The way anime is going i feel its just going to persuade pedophiles for some reason. I have even started to question if i should just stop watching My Little Pony to be honest, due to people in general.
