I honestly haven't seen an anime I didn't like yet. Maybe I just haven't watched enough, or I'm just one to enjoy most anime, but I dunno....

I can't stand harem protags that wear glasses, I keep thinking that the author is trying to self-insert them self into the show/manga the world that god only knows doesn't count.

I believe that fanservice can carry a show if done correctly.

Thought of some more:

There are good harems.
Watashi ga Motete Dousunda and Monster Musume are great. It's the all the "insert black/brown haired protagonist, probably of highschool age, into a setting in which he is surround by personified character archetypes who all love him for some inexplicable reason" battle shouen harems that are the problem. And yes SAO is one of them.


If there are two anime with a similar plot in which one is shounen and one is shoujo, the shoujo is probably better.


Flat is not justice.


shoujo is way more likely to have less animation quality due to the fact that their stories are less action based. The reason why yuri on ice and free went nuts was the fact that these had good animation for once. People act like enjoying art is a bad thing when that is what anime is animated art... Too many people imo throw out all the art and animation because one small part of the story wasn't exactly how they wanted it to be.... A lot of those "objective" type people under value the art/animation to a extreme degree. It is because art tastes vary too much and is hard to judge in a objective way.

I'm not into Death Note. I read the manga but all I wanted was for Kira to get defeated.

I didn't want him to die but to just get into a lot of trouble or discovered to the point of vast embarrassment.

Sadly, that's not what i got. :/

(Also what's with the ending???)

Most of the anime that moe, SoL, comedy and parody haters claim are good are actually edgelord, grimdark shite aimed at angsty teenagers and they should just learn to bloody enjoy themselves.



Couldn't say it better myself. Same goes for anyone who says anime died ~Y2K.

It's written by Ichiro Okouchi. He wrote the first Negima! anime, and Valvrave. Everyone hates those, but I like them (..... tbh, I don't really remember most of the first Negima series, just that it was typical harem stuff like the first ~10 or so books of the manga, before the plot starts. This version of the anime had that, and then added its own ending where this one character dies because she made a contract with this demon, years ago, and then everyone else time-travels to save her, and they all get magic powers (which also happened in the second version, except then it happened in the middle, not the end, and the way their powers worked was weird... but it was by Shaft, so...) But the feeling of when they all got powers was cute. The parts with the school class in Bodacious Space Pirates reminds me of that. It was that kind of cute).

Anyway, everyone always hates Ichiro Okouchi's shows... except for Code Geass. I have no idea how Code Geass is so popular because it has all of the things that Okouchi's shows always have that people hate them for. I'm glad it's popular, though. I love it. I just wish more people appreciated Valvrave. And I wish Valvrave had more of the characters I like.

I also need to watch Planetes. I'm not interested in the manga, just the anime.

I don't believe there was a golden era of anime. I don't think any one era had more or less quality anime than another. It only seems that way because as you get older fewer anime will have the emotional impact than the first few you saw and the ones that influenced you in your youth.

The anime adaptation of Planetes does not have the depth of the original manga, in my opinion. It took out a lot of the nuances from the story, and tacked on slapstick elements that seemed out of place, given the story's mature themes and tone.

Makoto Yukimura is one of my favorite manga creators based solely on the strength of Planetes and his other series, Vinland Saga.

I'm not sure which point you are trying to address but anyways.

There are multiple ways in which ANY media can objectively graded. In anime things like the frame rate, consistency of animation and character design, smoothness and fluidity of the animation, audio quality, voice acting, continuity, and many aspects of the story telling. An anime can tick all these boxes and score high marks in them and STILL be horribly boring to watch for most people.
The opposite is also true. Something can be poor in these regards but end up enjoyable.

On the note of generally preferring shoujo versions of particular plots; there are numerous examples of manga all falling within the same basic framework that I've read and ended up enjoying the shoujo versions more. Primarily because the shoujo versions, for obvious reasons, don't focus on pandering to teenage male virgins by having the whole thing revolve around the generic brown/black haired protagonist being OPaf and constantly being swarmed by women who like him because the author says so.
Does that mean I'm saying I prefer shoujo over shounen in general? No of course it doesn't. I am specifically referring to two stories in which BOTH have the same basic plot outline only one being shoujo and one being shounen. "stuck in a video game" stories for example.
My go to genre seems to be seinen cause that's where most of the Cute Girls Doing Cute Things SoLs seem to come from.

Give it time. Wait until you're old and salty like me. You'll start to dislike certain anime simply due to their particular fanbases and hype monsters.

I like watching some sport anime. I do find that there are a few irksome things that I dislike about them. Most either have all males participating or all female participants. In team sports that's understandable but when there are sports with individual competitions then there's no excuse just to zero in on all boys or all girls. I don't consider cheering from the side lines and or cleaning up after the team or being the team manager to be fully participating. Look at Free, a swim club with 5 members but only 4 swim or use the pool. Kou/Gou can't even use the excuse that she can't swim because neither did Rei when joined the club. She never even dipped a toe in the water.


This isn't meant to sway your opinion but just in terms of trivia; sports teams/clubs having a female manager is a long-term staple of Japanese high school sports programs irl. They are members, and it's something that can go a very long way on your resume after graduating high school, but they aren't athletes despite often working harder. (I'd like to think this means the girls' teams get bishounen managers, but somehow I expect that's unlikely.)


.


I'm not saying that managers don't work hard to contribute to a team. That just doesn't come across very well as far as I can see. I'm aware that that the anime are targeted for a specific audience but why does it have to be either female audience or male audience? In the case of Free Gou in the pool isn't going to detract from the boys in the pool.
