Personally, I'd like to see less 'realism' and more pushing the boundaries of animation; I don't mind the slice of life or high school stuff, but I just really want to see more of the over-the-top and off-the-wall kinds of animation. That's part of why I love Flip Flappers and Kill la Kill, after all. Animation has so much potential, it would be a waste to do nothing but 'real-life' type settings with it.


You've watched Dead Leaves and FLCL?

There is an anime site out there in Limbo Land. It was once active, but has been dead for nearly half a year. It appears to have been archived and still has many older animes accessible. It is sad, but this is the way "Fan Watching" has gone; death or into disgustingly crass commercialism. The times have changed, which is why I Finally subscribed to Crunchyroll. I was a serious hold-out. It hurt a lot because there were many sites out there that really were not profit motivated, they just wanted to recover some of their lay-out. These were the guys&gals who spent much of their free time to bring new anime to..me. One by one they folded as the licencing sharks found and surrounded them. They were annihilated because they were honest. If you ask, I'll tell you the name of this site. Because it is one of the very last remnants, or better perhaps, monuments to a time that has gone by. Please don't destroy them too. Their Library is Deep. Is there a way to preserve this site,like the stuffed body of an animal now gone extinct?

Gratuitous sexual fanservice is pointless and detracts from often well written or animated shows.

I am fine with nudity, sex, and attractive characters when the situations are natural or plot important, but when the world bends the fabric of space to make an otherwise impossible "ecchi scene" happen, it ruins the show.

When the camera angle is set specifically to give upskirt shots, focus on cleavage, or emphasize the sexual characteristics of a character, it ruins the show.

If the focus of the show is sexual fanservice, that's one thing, and it can be avoided by not watching it, but when an otherwise normal show throws in those scenes, it ruins the show.

I prefer if all pornographic or inappropriate material in many Anime series such as hentai, lolicon, shotacon be banned permanently, among scenes with the disgusting tropes involving abnormally large breasts, inappropriate groping from male characters while the female characters yelping like children.

This is what I believe and not asserting as a fact since this topic is considered subjective, but the content is perverse, mind deteriorating and detrimental to how female fictional characters are at times perceived in Anime. There is more harm than good from hentai, but this again is my opinion.

I’m kind of sick of “kindness” being considered a sufficient trait to define a character. This really only applies to harems, but I prefer my protagonists to have some kind of defining feature or inner drive just beyond being “the kind dude that notices people’s good qualities.”

It’s why I like Fuutarou in Quints but not Nariyuki in We Never Learn. Nariyuki is a nice guy, Fuutarou is determined to be a good teacher. He will get those girls good grades so help him god, his pride and his paycheck rely on it. He has some decent qualities yes, but his own motivations are the center of those, not simply a passive god given trait of being a nice guy.

The thing that got me thinking about this is Danmachi. I’ve read the LN after watching the anime, and there is a bit of a disconnect with Bell between the two. In the anime, he comes off quite a bit as sort of an innocent nice guy who tries his hardest. In the LN though, you get a look at his inner workings a bit more and you notice he’s a bit of a pervert and actually genuinely quite a bit of a coward, initially at least. These character flaws really make me enjoy the character a lot more, yet the anime version sufficiently just gives him the pleasant nice guy character that attracts all the girls.

I’d say the best example of what I like is Sora from NGNL, he is just a cluster of relatable human traits. He has so many real personality flaws, that it makes him extremely graspable and relatable to even if he is technically in the position of the harem super powered hero.

My Hero Academia is one of the most overrated anime shows of all time.
The story is as bland as a generic isekai anime.

Most people seemed to have read this as "negative anime opinions" rather than unpopular.

Modern anime is alright. The normal rules about most things not being worth watch just still apply.

I have 11 10 out of 10s, and 32 9s from this decade.

But here's the real unpopular opinion. Anime should be more leftest. Enough of implied lesbians. Symphogear, nanoha, and newgame come to mind. Let them kiss god damn it. And gay guys too. Enough of trans characters mostly being the same joke. Have something set in ww2 that doesn't pretend like the Japanese empire wasn't on par with Nazi Germany. Retire the fall on boobs, and perverted old master gags already.

On a second rewatch of Deathnote, I find a lot of the scenes to be too cringeworthy to enjoy and its become a show I'm not enjoying as much on a second rewatch.

The scenes and characters which have made me cringe the most:

-The infamous potato chip (its worse dubbed than subtitled, but still over the top),
-Misa-Misa is just really annoying in both Japanese and dubbing
-The constant beating over the head and reiteration of just how brilliant both Light and L are in spite of the fact that most of the scenes where they predict each others behaviour is based on nothing but unrealistic clairvoyance.

For some of us these were issues even with the first viewing. Also, for such a supposedly intelligent person Light makes some very silly decisions. Anyway, I'm not saying Death Note was a bad show, I actually really enjoyed the first season, but I do agree it gets a bit more worship than it probably deserves.

Agree with all of them and I'd like to add that I absolutely despise L for investigating based on his gut feeling and not evidence most of the times. It also didn't help that he sometimes used despicable methods to get the evidence he wanted once he decided who the culprit was.

In fairness, I think I forgot about how much the show portrays L's confirmation bias (rather than collecting hard evidence).

I always remembered Misa Misa being annoying and the potato chip scene being embarrassing to watch but the glaring issues of L not doing any real detective work, basing most of it on a hunch without any real hard evidence, plus breaking the law constantly, was something I think I didn't remember after my first watch. (On a related note, all of the detectives quitting the police force without even consideration and without talking to their families---to the point that Yagami-san basically rejects any reason to even bother; is somewhat laughable and while its meant to portray how serious they are, there was no reason to include it; as it feels more childish than anything else)

The first season is still really good but I think there were opportunities which were missed and the pacing was weird at points after the death of L, I think the show does become a shadow of itself and the time jump was just atrociously silly.

As for Misa, I think its not just that she's annoying but she's literally being exploited by both L and Light. I mean, I get the whole concept of Burikko but this is like a trope on steroids and its uncomfortable to watch especially given that Misa's fate is basically undecided with the insinuation that she jumped.

But it's easy to find parts that seem forced on the Japanese side but sounds better dubbed.

Great example I always give: All-Might punching out Noumu.

Here's the subbed: https://youtu.be/XvR-kTUad6U

And here's (imho, the much better) dubbed: https://youtu.be/8TFAGAyLzcg?t=2m43s

To my ears, the original just sounds like Kenta is forcing it, while Sabat just nails it.



Hmm... I never thought of dubbed and subbed anime this way before. Usually I choose either subbed or dubbed to watch a show in, so I don't often hear both sides. But, I think both of these versions of All-Might that you provided are really good. Thank you for posting this!

My unpopular opinion...besides the fact that some dubs are better than the original subs (ie Cowboy Bebop, Hetalia, etc)...
Little Witch Academia is not as good as people think. It's overrated.


The voices in the Japanese version of Hetalia fit the characters so much better though. The sub is overall of much higher quality in terms of voice acting and characterization

I hate fillers.
I like shorter shows that finish a story in less than 30 eps rather than the ones that go on for years.
And sometimes dubs can be just as good as subs.
