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!


You realize One Piece's animation is shit because it started earlier during this century?
You also realize that there's newer animation due to the amount of kaching they're getting right?

Anyways, unpopular opinion, I don't like:

Hellsing Ultimate.
The story is absolute shit and the plot gets so convoluted but hey you're supposed to watch it for the overly, excessive gore, and how cool it is. There's nothing special about it.

Tokyo Ghoul
Literally, nothing happens, except for the first couple/few episodes. Didn't really make you think on a deeper level with the characters. It was very simple. I heard the manga was way better, can't be bothered though.

Different folks, Different shows.



Nah man, even anime that started around the time One Piece came out had better animation. It's just the style. The manga has the same art style.

You really think the story for Hellsing Ultimate was that bad? I thought it was good. Plus, I don't see how it was convoluted. It's not just the action that was good, but the animation, the voice acting (even the English voice acting), everything. You telling me it was nothing special is like telling me chocolate and bacon taste bad, or you hate big boobs, but as you said, different folks, different shows, right?

What are your top three anime, or even just top one? (Hellsing Ultimate is my top one)


I don't think it was that bad, I just don't think it's up to par with good stories. I didn't think it was special, but hey you do.

My top animes would include, but not limited to:
Baccano!
Steins;Gate
Durarara!!!

I have plenty of favorite animes, but these are ones that have fantastic stories.

For sure though, different folks, different shows.

edit: by no means I am shitting on your opinion, I just think that One Piece has evolved to better animation, sure it has a kiddy-teen feel for its story, but it's good too. HU wasn't that bad either.


Baccano! was pretty good. I got through half way, then I think I got bored or something. Maybe one day I'll finish watching it. Liked the blonde guy with the white suit. Never seen Stein;Gate or Durarara!!!

Anohana is terrible...

but not quite as bad as 5 cm per second.


Yeah, I want to talk about this. I watched both in the last two years and while I did like them, I felt the super-tryhard texture of the sadness in Anohana, while Byousoku 5 Centimeter was just kind of nothing. (A very long time ago, when I was in a long-distance relationship, she and I loved Hoshi no Koe... until the ending. And Shinkai seems to keep churning out more of the same. Yet I'd still like to see Your Name in a theater.)

Right now I'm trying to work out what my relationship is with anime melodrama. (I'm not counting Shinkai films as melodrama, but I'm lumping them in here among "I can't cry to this.") Today I'm in the middle of Your Lie in April, and while I love it when it's about the trials of being an artist and musician, and I get really into the musical performance scenes, much of the rest of it turns me off.

It would seem reasonable to assume that Clannad is my favorite anime series because it got in early. I've watched a lot more melodrama since then - Jun Maeda's other attempts, and and all of New Who - so melodrama may have lost its power over me.

But what's up with my track record since watching Clannad?

Makoto Shinkai films: did not make me cry
Steins;Gate: almost made me cry once, but not quite
Anohana: made me cry once
Opening scene of Star Trek (2009): still makes me cry every time I watch it
Girls und Panzer: made me cry once
Girls und Panzer der film: made me cry three separate times
Strike Witches/Brave Witches: made me cry several times
Sailor Moon (1992, I started watching it for the first time in 2016): made me cry many times


After Story does have elements you don't get in teen melodramas, and I believe that for me it's once-in always-in - that the fact that I bought into it is hard-coded into me. I certainly hope that's the case. I'm one of those people who can cry just from listening to the After Story OP, but that doesn't guarantee I'll have the same reaction to actually watching the show. I'll start the Big Damn Clannad Re-watch next week.

Looks like this thread turned into a circle jerk of hate. Your favorite anime is trash, even mine, so why not talk about shows you like that most people hate?

1. Tokyo Ghoul
2. Neon Genesis Evangelion
3. Monster Musume

I'm not that familiar with Evangelion (seen it, but I don't know it inside and out like some things) but when people hate characters for the reasons they give about him, they're usually wrong. Unless I'm missing some details from the series, it's just a bunch of armchair action fools saying he should act like a typical shonen hero, even though the whole point is how silly, unrealistic, etc. it is to have characters act like that.

YESSSS EXACTLY. The point of the anime was to showcase the hopelessness and despair of the characters, and how they realized at the end that happiness is a choice. They call him "whiny" and hate on him for reacting like a normal human being lmao

another one: 5 centimeters per second was a super boring, overrated movie

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.

^ It's because it's not marketed to people who want to see Gou in a swimsuit. It's marketed to people who want to see guys in swimsuits.

I don't know how popular or unpopular it is, but unfortunately sub and dub stuff is still controversial...
I like the dub better for both of my favorite series. Out of my top 5... it just so happens that the two that I really like the Japanese voice acting in happen to be the ones that don't have dubs. But it's not just comparing the Japanese and English voice acting... I feel like even without the English dubs to compare them to, I'd still not enjoy the voice acting.

I think that deciding by actually watching both, and having different preferences by show (and some shows where both are good, and some shows where you don't like either) is an unpopular opinion...

Also, you know a voice actor is typecast when you have a vivid memory of his performance as a certain character, and then you remember you've only ever watched that character's episode in the opposite language.

Also, speaking of Black Butler - if they animate the school arc, they should go by typecasts and they should make voice actor references in the show. English and Japanese. And they can reuse actors who were in the Circus arc. Yeah, that one and that one. You know it's going to happen. (except Sebastian and Agni's voice actors can't exactly be double cast...)
Especially considering the current arc of the manga...

When an anime goes its own direction and doesn't follow the Manga to me that's kinda fucked up

It depends on the writers. Being a manga artist does not automatically make someone a better writer.

Actually, most manga aren't that well written. It's due more to the publication structure than anything else.

I tend to prefer the original anime versions (eg. FMA 2003) as often as I prefer the manga versions (eg. Black Butler).

But the best anime aren't even based on manga. So don't say "the manga" as if it's a universal fact that the manga came first.

Most of the best anime are original works (e.g. Code Geass), or so distanced from their source material that they might as well be (e.g. KamiAso).

Is there a statistic for anime by source material? I feel like there used to be a lot more anime based on manga, enough that it was reasonable to just assume that. Recently, I feel like there are much more LN adaptations, game adaptations, originals, etc.
