It's a sad thing really. If Death Note had ended after 25 episodes, I would've said it definately deserved its place. The third part of the show really destroyed the charm of the series.

Hunter x Hunter is a bit underrated, probably the smallest fanbase among WSJ.
It also gets a lot of complaints for trying to come up with new storylines and not just following the format that fans are used to. Which imo are unjustified.


Btw: SnK is dropping down, soon enough people will saynit's underrated.

I say it alot, but imo the worst part of Death Note was the Yotsuba (?) arc. If I got the name wrong I mean

It was never implied that Megumi's brother recovered from his social anxiety. He indeed still had it. The reason he was able to go out and get the job was because it was his own free will and he was PREPARED to go out and talk to someone, as oppose to when Satou and Misaki barged into his room. It wasn't due to mere hunger that made the guy get off his ass, it was the fact that if he didn't, he would probably die (since Megumi has never been gone for that long and he wouldn't know when she would come back). All in all, his anxiety was not as severe as you portrayed in your review, and it was a lot more than hunger that made the guy do what he did.

And the reason Satou didn't do what that guy did was because he never had to deal with the issue of his actual life being on the line unless he got a job. His parents gave him an allowance.

I can't say I understand your reasoning. It was in fact portrayed to be more severe than Satou's, as evident by the scene where Satou and co. get inside his room.

It was unrealistic, people of that severe hikki can't just simply get better because they felt a threat on their life, it was never stated how long his sister was gone IIRC. And at the scene where he talks with the shop owners felt like he was a normal human being. One of the more prominent problems his type faces are their lack of will, self control and determination. So yea it felt extremely unrealistic to me and hardly believable given his character before the hunger/life threat occurred.

"Attack on titan. Well to be short. Pacing issues, the characters are god awful especially Eren, the dialogue, lack of death for important characters, etc."

Lack of death for important character? What about naruto then????? The characters are way better than whinny bitch sakura, and gay ass naruto. Dialogue? I don't even know what the fuck you are trying to say. Anyways.....

Overrated kill la kill Jesus this anime is just terrible, felt like I was watching a cartoon. Don't even get me started with the fan service.

underrated Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom and kaze no stigma both are very good imo.

Are your screw loose? The anime has ended 6 month now of course people are not going to be talking about it. What do u expect people to still be talking about a anime that ended months now? Don't worry when 2015 comes it will be back to take its throne. Expect even more hype than before since a lot of people are begging for a season 2. Next time think before talking bullshit. Thank you very much.

RAINBOW 二舎六房の七人: This anime severely disappointed me I was so happy while watching it thinking I am gonna have a new favorite anime but nope it drastically went down hill after ep 11, the main character suddenly became an illogical idiot and then the second part of the anime happened where there is no plot and the main villain of the first part get handled pretty easily and then they move to character arcs where basically every character in their own respective arc have a dream or something they want to accomplish but in the end of the arc the fail to do it but the rest of the friends help that said character to move on or to deal with it and then repeat that formula in every single arc [ Problem happens > Problem get solved > repeat] so much wasted potential. The first half was pretty good.

Yes Rainbow is overrated.
The first 13 episodes (?- I can't remember when the first half ended) were great but after that we see a wash & repeat cycle that drags the first half of this show down with it.

Why can't you just counter the point with stuff in SnK instead of trying to compare it to Naruto.

Important character that died in Naruto


The characters who died in SnK are mostly fodder except for 2 or 3 of them. You seem really butthurt. I didn't attack you personally so I don't get why you are upset.

I think Sakura is better written than the entire cast of SnK.

I wont even bother with you. This quote "I think Sakura is better written than the entire cast of SnK." Shows that I would be wasting my time on you. I wonder what u will do when naruto manga ends this year? Please don't kill yourself. :(

You made the grave mistake of attempting to begin an argument or getting frustrated with any Naruto fan to begin with IMO (especially zealous defenders). It's always one-sided...leaning only to what comes out of their mouth and nothing else.

I've been reading this "argument" for the past few pages and it's kind of absurd at this point for all the wrong reasons.

I'm not even a fan of Naruto, but I'm fairly certain Naruto (the character) has way more backstory and development than any Shingeki no Kyojin character

OT: Well, same as always for me

Overrated: Zero no Tsukaima, Mirai Nikki


lol, but yet sakura and most of the characters are useless. Also to compare a series with over 600+ chapters to a series with 55 chapters is not a good comparison. Just saying.

I won't say whether it's better written or not, but Shingeki no Kyojin's casts are as bland as they could be. Levi is better than most of them, but he is still quite bland.

Indeed.


Most of my posts aren't about Naruto.
Yoshii Kiria took over as leader of Fairytale and rebuilt it and became one of Tsukunes formidable enemies but let's save that story for another time

Hehe, let me introduce him to you again, kid. This is Shuzen Issa (who is MIA during the final battle), who will become your 'trainer' starting today. You still have much to go if you want to become the headmaster.

Like the two souls have started to become one.

Naruto has been pumping for a decade with weekly releases, while SNK is five years old and so sluggish with publication that a second season is uncertain, while Naruto runs for...god knows how long with fillers.

I'd find it bewildering if Kishimito was so inept that he couldn't even develop his titular character with all that time given, but fortunately that's not the case. Too bad with the exception of a handful of others, the rest of the supporting characters are useless cardboard cutouts that only exist to glorify Naruto's mightiness.

Aria the Ani/Nat/Origination isn't underrated by any means, but I feel like it's obscure and under the radar despite its rank. It often goes overlooked and underestimated for its premise.

Not many people enjoy slow paced slice of life. I always think of given it a chance but I can already see me getting bored beyond belief while watching it.

Read the manga. each characters are starting to get character development, like Erwin in the latest chapter it is reveal why he's that type of person. Expect to get lots of character development in season 2.

More, yes. (It's 700 chapters for god's sake).

Better? Not even close.
For one, Eren does not hyperventilate over... I don't even know what to call that.

Well, "more" was all I was arguing for.

And Eren rages at a ton of things throughout the series ._.


So? Raging isn't bad by itself. Seeing your buddies killed like flies is pretty rage-worthy I'd say.

I honestly don't remember much. I wrote that review months ago, so I can't really go into details because I only remember the prominent parts (i.e his overreaction, the way he generally behaved and the scene where he was on the ground begging and acting somewhat normal after it).

To be honest, I think I would have thought NHK was good if it weren't for Gonzo and their adaption. The manga is much better and more enjoyable imo.

Yea, the two people that are responsible for his mother death, and to a mass of people. Eren should put on a smiley face and go with them. Would u not be upset if u were in that position? Also he was very young when his mother died, he even saw it.

Putting on hold, waiting for more chapters. Still, the characters in SnK lack charisma, even if they're getting some development. I can't say for sure though, I haven't read that part yet.

Relevant.

Not raging as much is not character development or a sign of it. He followed Levi because he had no choice, it was either that or get killed or stay in prison or w/e the court wanted before Levi interruption/suggestion. And the senseless beating Levi gave him, had an affect on him, and tamed him. He still had the same psycho obsession look and desire to kill the titans. What mistakes did he learn from?

I don't think he is a one dimensional character, he is the MC of the story so no matter how bad of a character he is, he can't really be one dimensional. He is two dimensional and lacks adequate depth. I called his rage one dimensional, it's always the same thing with no different/another dimension to it, his thoughts about the titans don't go beyond his desire to kill them, even though he is a titan himself. That was an opportunity for internal conflict for him, which would have added a lot more depth to his shallow character. But he didn't give two shits about it, all he thoughts about his titan power is that it can be used as a power/tool to kill other titan and help humanity. The thought of titans being humans didn't even occur to him or cross his mind.

He views the world/the titans/humanity/the conflict between them in a black and white way.

He is idiotic, immature, hotheaded and blinded by rage and that didn't change from the beginning of the series until where I left it in the manga.

Acting like a retard
instead of trying to make the best of his situation

''Die, Die'' ? seriously?
What if funny is that he himself said he will try to get some helpful information out of them but quickly forgot that and gave in to his emotions, meaning that he is still his old overzealous, immature, self-righteous and hot headed self.


and that's what I meant by ''especially Eren''.

Anyways I'm just want to avoid another "why Naruto suck or not" again here.

Overrated:

Strike the Blood since character interaction and the story suck.

Underrated:

Natsuiro Kiseki I think have really interesting cast. Too bad that the animation is inconsistence sometimes.

, after that, I put it on hold, then I read something about 2 certain 'reveals' and was put off by it, even if I didn't find any particular flaws up to where I've read.

Overall I'd say the manga is a lot better than the anime, and is pretty well-written. It sure has a lot of extreme emotions and shock value but that's what they're going for, and they've done a terrific job so far.

Raging when he's captured by enemies that barely did anything recently when he has the chance to, I don't fucking know, gather some information isn't


Relevant.

Not raging as much is not character development or a sign of it. He followed Levi because he had no choice, it was either that or get killed or stay in prison or w/e the court wanted before Levi interruption/suggestion. And the senseless beating Levi gave him, had an affect on him, and tamed him. He still had the same psycho obsession look and desire to kill the titans. What mistakes did he learn from?

I don't think he is a one dimensional character, he is the MC of the story so no matter how bad of a character he is, he can't really be one dimensional. He is two dimensional and lacks adequate depth. I called his rage one dimensional, it's always the same thing with no different/another dimension to it, his thoughts about the titans don't go beyond his desire to kill them, even though he is a titan himself. That was an opportunity for internal conflict for him, which would have added a lot more depth to his shallow character. But he didn't give two shits about it, all he thoughts about his titan power is that it can be used as a power/tool to kill other titan and help humanity. The thought of titans being humans didn't even occur to him or cross his mind.

He views the world/the titans/humanity/the conflict between them in a black and white way.

He is idiotic, immature, hotheaded and blinded by rage and that didn't change from the beginning of the series until where I left it in the manga.

Acting like a retard
instead of trying to make the best of his situation

''Die, Die'' ? seriously?
What if funny is that he himself said he will try to get some helpful information out of them but quickly forgot that and gave in to his emotions, meaning that he is still his old overzealous, immature, self-righteous and hot headed self.


and that's what I meant by ''especially Eren''.


and that's how the mangaka wanted him to react, like a normal person. He's changing though, he seems more mature in the later chapter, but for the non manga readers when season 2 comes out u all are going to eat your words.

It's anime, they make everything interesting. Did you really think watching a kid play Go would be interesting at first?

Yes. Board game is fun. :p

Hasn't watched Hajime no Ippo yet.

I tried. The first few episodes were pretty decent, I watched up until where Ippo learned to catch the leaves, but.. boxing.. isn't that interesting.. but.. I'll give it another try.

Same here. I kinda lost interest after that. Well, I will probably pick it up, since I like long running anime. And pick up Space Brothers while I'm at it.

I honestly don't remember much. I wrote that review months ago, so I can't really go into details because I only remember the prominent parts (i.e his overreaction, the way he generally behaved and the scene where he was on the ground begging and acting somewhat normal after it).

To be honest, I think I would have thought NHK was good if it weren't for Gonzo and their adaption. The manga is much better and more enjoyable imo.
Coincidentally, I stumbled across your review earlier today (before you posted it in this thread), and I was itching to give you a profile comment, but I saw the date of the review and decided to just forget about it. Also, I'm on a tablet, so I wasn't willing to take the risk of typing so much just for you to tell me you don't remember some things, lol.

I actually hated reading parts of the manga because Satou was so unlikable. In the anime he wasn't that annoying or an idiot. But I agree with you that the manga is still better quality.

Aria the Ani/Nat/Origination isn't underrated by any means, but I feel like it's obscure and under the radar despite its rank. It often goes overlooked and underestimated for its premise.

Not many people enjoy slow paced slice of life. I always think of given it a chance but I can already see me getting bored beyond belief while watching it.


That's true, Aria is something that requires the right mindset + desire for slower SOL to enjoy.

I feel like Aria is one of those series that should be slowly savored. An episode or two per day at most. It took me 4 months to get through the ~50 episodes of it, but I feel like I would have been cheated out of a much greater experience if I had tried to marathon or sped up the process.

And I really hate comparing anime like this, but I watched a certain episode of it around the same time SnK finished airing and I found it exponentially more satisfying than the entirety of Shingeki.

Already tried that and unfortunately, it didn't work for me. I still can't get use to the cat.
