Attack on Titan.
One Piece.
Stein's Gate.
Log Horizon.
Ghost in the Shell.

Attack On Titan - a massively over-rated mess. I've not even bothered watching the latest season

The only one I could actually say I hate is Sword Art Online. I actually wouldn't hate it if it wasn't so popular. I mean Isuca is like the most shit anime ever, and it's not even a topic of discussion.

My problem with SAO though is that all it does is reach for the low-hanging fruit, and people are satisfied with that.

Naruto fucks up all the time, but it at least aims for the higher branches.

I also made this clear with Goblin Slayer, but I hate when rape is used to induce shock or a sense of danger. When used in that way, it's the lowest hanging fruit on the storytelling tree. It is like the scarlet letter of a hack writer to me. SAO constantly uses it like that.

Sword Art Online. Yes i said the S word...
Naruto (lost faith due to The massive sakura hate and the fandom's toxicity) To honest, its not the anime itself, i hate. It's the fandom i can't stand. There are some nice ones i met, but i heard the rest of the fandoms were acting rude due to ships and throwing threats at the creator.
Finally Cory in the house..

I actually liked the first half of S1 to SAO. But yeh I haven't enjoyed anything past the first like 13 episodes or so.

Another one I can't stand.....

JoJo's.

Don't "get it."

A lot of these are anime that actually have pretty divisive reactions (Naruto has as much criticism as praise, for instance), and Black Clover and SAO? I can count the amount of people I know who say they like those on one hand.

If I can say an anime I don't like that I've seen a majority of people express praise for, it's probably MHA. I don't think it's outright garbage (some of the cast, especially Bakugo, are amazing and it is a competitor for the best paced Shonen of all time) - but a lacking MC combined with a lot of inconsistencies plus a real lack of courage to put its money where its mouth is in terms of themes and top all that off with largely weak fights, creates something that I'm really sick and tired of seeing absolutely *everywhere*.

I'm pretty sure the only reason it's this popular is that its main competition for shonen currently airing are One Piece (the anime is rubbish compared to the manga) Boruto (Naruto had far too definitive of an ending and lacks an expansive enough world for a sequel to work, and it doesn't) Dragonball Super (the equivalent of dragging out a faded star and having them flog merchandise) and Black Clover (rock bottom). Against those, MHA is the top of the pile. But it ain't a good pile. (JoJo is also there, but while it is undisputedly amazing it's far too weird to have the sort of solid mainstream success as MHA).


If I widen the net to just parts of an anime, I prefer some of the earlier arcs of Dragonball to Z. And if we include stuff we haven't even watched, I had no real interest in Goblin Slayer but its obnoxious popularity (and by that I mean a solid month of seeing basically nothing but Goblin Slayer references) has made me seriously annoyed at it.

Akira ( I don't hate it...I just don't like it)
Code Geass (I did like it at first, but eventually Lelouch became too much to stand)

I'd say Akame ga Kill, but I get the impression a lot of people dislike it. (Same with Code Geass, I started out liking it, then it just fell apart)

Kind of like I'm surprised people are naming SAO. I thought it was most famous for people hating it.

I liked most of season 1 of Attack on Titan and I loved season 3, but season 2 was horrible, so were a few parts of season 1

Ghost in The Shell, I can't say I hate it, I've just never gotten into it enough to even watch it...same with Evangelion

No Game No Life - When a show crosses my threshold for creepy and weird, there is a problem.
Haganai - Everyone but Rika is worst girl.
My Hero Academia - If you frequented the MHA thread during Season 2, you are probably familiar with my complaints.

FMA: Brotherhood
One Piece
Cowboy Bebop
Soul Eater
Natsume Yuujinchou

A few of these I'm more ambivalent towards than actual "hate," per se.

It's about the only one I can actually say I do hate. There are a lot of anime out there that I can't really judge because they aren't for me, or they aren't in genres I generally like anyway, so I can't say I hate them. Hell, I don't watch them. However, SAO is the one where I am the target audience as far as theme goes, but the substance misses so hard it turns me into an angry fan boy.

I'm generally not one for gritty fantasy, so I won't say I hate Goblin Slayer. Berserk is just an outlier for me in this instance because I love Guts to death. He is the baddest of asses.
