I don't think their opinions are shit, I just don't care about them.

Definitely do keep their fans away from me and delete this thread, though. Nobody wants that shit.
1 hour = 10,000 yen.
2 hours = 20,000 yen.
3 hours = 3 loaves of French bread.
4 hours = 4 loaves of French bread.

most anime youtubers tend to talk about waifus, sexual stuffs and all that bullshit

It's called Anime and you're part of that fandom too.


Gigguk doesn't do that. He rarely talk about it or mention it in his videos.
A lot of youtubers do that too.

I dislike most of them. I talk about the episode reviewers hyping nearly everything known to be from Japan, because creating hypetardness generates hypertard ad revenue. In consequence, instead of giving a honest opinion that could go against the flow, they stay as positive as the Care Bears.

If your analysis stays consistently surface level through the use of interchangeable wording or if you aren't willing to take an unpopular stance reflecting your sensitivity, I won't stick around for your "reviews". Plain simple, I have no time to waste with the unctuous kowtowing to their userbase.

Only Melon pan worth watching for the funny weeb memes. Other channels are utter trash, especially those pseudo-intellectual ones.

Most tend to lack substance tbh (The Anime Man, Misty Chronexia etc. Don't get me wrong, they seem like nice enough guys but they never have anything interesting to say) though there are a number of great ones. My favourites would have to be Super Eyepatch Wolf and GoatJesus, the latter of whom has started uploading again for the first time in a while.

Back to back they faced each other, drew their swords and shot each other
A deaf policeman heard the noise and came and killed those two dead boys

Why you dislike RCAnime?

I agree with TAS and MB.

GR is ok. he doesn't try too hard imo.

I like the ones I keep up with such as Digibro, Mother's Basement, Gigguk, TheAnimeMan, Glass Reflection, Under The Scope, BennetTheSage, and SuperEyepatchWolf.

Some are just there and there are some trash ones I wouldn't think twice about forgetting.

I'm not entirely sure if MyJapaneseAnimes and EndlessJess count. I know Mumkey doesn't. Abridgers don't really count either.
"Anti-elitists" are the true elitists of this community. They're the kind of people that remind me that the elitist stereotype they perpetuate basically doesn't exist, and those who use it to scapegoat embody practically every trait they put into the stereotype, as they sit in their ivory tower looking down at and attacking people they disagree with because they're being negative on a show they like, and their favorites list is comprised of at least one non-mainstream classic, all the while cowering at the idea of those people giving them a taste of their own medicine. Also, objectivity in art is relative, therefore arguable, not nonexistent.

I really do not like anime youtubers and the people that watch them. I don't really care about their opinions and find it idiotic that some people form all of their opinions based on what someone on youtube has said.

Its a balance of effort and video length for me. If the youtuber actually takes the time to write a decent script and edits the video in a way that makes for a pleasant viewing experience, then yes. However, in my experiences, very few anime youtubers put this level of effort into their videos, such as Gigguk, Super Eyepatch Wolf, and Lathan Crowe. Most just stare at you with their ugly bearded mug and ramble unedited about some bullshit or show some uninteresting gameplay to keep you from going comatose (not talking about anyone in particular *wink*wink*). As for video length, I'd say 15-20 minutes is more than enough time to get your point across about pretty much anything. 40 min-1 hr+ to explain your opinion on an anime is just too long for me. I could actually be watching anime for god's sake. Overall, I'm more interested in someone's quick opinion of a series rather than long pseudo-intellectual video essays. But to each their own, I'd rather be watching anime. As for people that hate all anime youtubers, I don't really understand this either. They come to the conclusion that because you agree with or acknowledge someone else's opinion that it somehow becomes your own. You aren't forming your own opinion from someone else's just by watching a video; I'd hate to think people are that impressionable. I watch these videos to see new perspectives and see what other people think about anime, not to see what so-and-so believes is right so I can watch anime the right way.

I prefer reading reviews to watching people talk about them.

So there's my answer.
The League of Demon Sealers! The First Generation is the Ancestor. The Second Generation is the Inheritor. The Third Generation is the most powerful. After the Fourth Generation, the successive generations grow weaker…. But the Ninth Generation is the ultimate! If the Ninth Generation is not slain, it is the pinnacle!

I appreciate their hard work, but I don't like them when they take anime, which are supposed to be entertainment, too seriously or critically.

It is sad but I honestly enjoy those low-effort "reaction" "episode review" types of video more than those high-effort critical intellectual analysis on certain anime or the industry.

I like to see people having fun in watching anime and hear their true opinion, not some rationalized scripts waiting for public examination.

I completely agree with you. 👌 Some Anime YouTubers make funny videos which is awesome but sometimes they just take it way too seriously for my taste.

Digibro: Presents his opinions extremely well, but will indulge in elitism.

TheAnimeMan: Laid back, chill, but some find him too "casual".

Gigguk: Makes fun of popular anime (all i know him for really.)

Gigguk for the parodies

Lost Pause to recognize what not to become

Glass Reflection for an outside opinion

Super Eyepatch Wolf for the amount of research/in-depth analysis he does

TheAnimeMan occasionally for random Japan stuff

Digibro for random useless anime knowledge

I like quite a few of them. Mainly Digibro, KingofLightning, and Gigguk.

And even if the hate is the vocal minority, they sure are loud. All I ever see is the hate, honestly.

Indifferent though I am not a huge fan of guys like digibro. Misty does have some good videos especially for someone trying to keep up with seasonals his videos tend to be useful for finding out about shows I haven't seen before and I guess if you count guys like Team Four Star them as well. Used to watch Sawyer7mage as well but his videos for the most part were just Naruto and OP reviews and I kinda burn't out on OP so I don't really watch him anymore.

Just by skimming through the thread, I don't think I've heard of some of the big ones.
I think I've unsubbed from all of the ones I was subbed to though, Glass Reflection, Mother's Basement, Digibro, Gigguk, and The Anime Man. I enjoyed some of their content some of the time but I was subbed to too many people and they were pretty much the first to go when I started cleaning my list out.

I watched some anime channels and IMO they are just my entertainment, just like other genres of youtuber. Nothing wrong with that. Not like Anime is some kind of snowflake nowadays.

If you like fashion then you may like a fashion channel.

Anime youtube channels that I like:
1. Gigguk
2. The Anime Man
3. Pewdipie

I like them but the only one that I actually subscribed to is TheAnimeMan. I thought his videos are really funny and entertaining. Of course I don't fully listen to his opinions.

Help, I'm hooked into the Fate series (not all) and am obsessed with Shirou x Saber!
Also, forever hoping for a ufotable remake of the Fate route!
