I'd rather have a mediocre attempt at 86 Dragon Ball than the entirety of Z.

DB died when Goku grew up. As far as I'm concerned, it ended with the King Piccolo Saga.


Why you say so? You don't like how the narrative focused more in battles rather than adventures or you just didn't want Goku to become an adult?


Because the power levels spiked and it completely altered the show.

As a kid, Goku was strong as balls, but still felt human. A good martial artist could defeat him. Any human being who trained just as hard as him had a chance. That made him a superhero, but not Superman.

There was absolutely no valid reason to introduce so much power creep. That's something that should happen in online games, not anime.
Krillin was a badass. Yamcha was a badass. Tien was practically the ultimate badass. These characters are jokes in Dragon Ball Z. They are walking memes.

Lunch, an incredible female character, was essentially deleted. Because how would a chick with a machine gun compete against General Zod?
Chi-Chi? Forget it. Bury that helmet and go make some sandwiches instead.

Yes, it's true that I despise the "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH" nature of Dragon Ball Z. Bunch of monkeys running around screaming and collecting power ups.
All that matters are the flashy "fights," with energy beams bouncing around everywhere... PEW! PEW! PEW! What a pretty light show.

But above all, I hate what they did to most of the cast. And for what? To introduce a bunch of soulless aliens and androids? Seriously, who gives a shit? You're gonna bend over and sodomize your existent cast for that? Come on...
1 hour = 10,000 yen.
2 hours = 20,000 yen.
3 hours = 3 loaves of French bread.
4 hours = 4 loaves of French bread.

I recently finished watching both seasons of Asterisk War and it was actually pretty good.

It suffered from poor character introductions early on, but became more compelling as more meat of the story started happening.

and other objectively good anime that being called 'for pseudo-intellectuals' and many anime that try to be different that being called 'edgy' or 'pretentious'. seriously fuck those terms lmao

One thing that made me really enjoy chivalry were the fight scenes.
However the ecchi was really bad in my opinion. How does asterisk fights compare? And is the ecchi toned down ?
Regarding the ecchi, I'm not sure how to compare the two, but Asterisk War definitely has some ecchi scenes, such as one female character coming out of the shower in a bathrobe and sexually propositioning a male character, as well as a wet shirt scene involving two of the characters. I don't remember Chivalry's scenes as clearly but I think Asterisk has similar or somewhat less? Maybe. But in general, as the show progressed, there was less of it. Part of the nice thing about it having two seasons was that it got to spend more time having less focus on the fanservice and the awkward relationship rivalries.

With regards to those awkward relationship rivalries though, I think Asterisk was definitely less awkward about it, albeit due to two of the female characters being less obnoxiously demanding of the male lead's attention.

With regards to the fight scenes, I think Asterisk has more of them (due to being longer), and I feel they definitely did a good job of showing off the some rather complex mechanics and strategies used. Not all fights were given equal screentime, of course, but the ones that were covered in detail were covered very effectively IMO. Also, the fact that these are duo team fights mean that a lot more interesting tactics are possible, and I found these tactics very entertaining to watch.

Highschool DxD and Date a Live may not be great anime from an objective standpoint, but I think that among the ecchi/harem genre, they're the best I've watched, and have a lot more heart and soul put into them, than 99% of ecchi/harems.
I wonder to what extent this sort of opinion of "most"/"the rest"/"99%"/etc. of a genre having little "heart and soul put into them" may have more to do with simply lack of personal enjoyment or lack of attraction to the genre. Like, how do you measure "heart and soul"? (Obviously there's no direct measurement, but I'm asking you to clarify what you mean by this, and why you think DAL and HSDxD are so much better.)

HopefulNihilist said:


In that case, how do you feel about Digibro's, "The Asterisk War Sucks" videos?
I thought I already covered this in gory detail in your thread about Digibro?

Anyway, I disagree with them, of course.

His overall points are that the characterization makes little sense, that clichés were used, and that he found little that was interesting/unique/innovative about the series that he could latch onto. He also engages in a lot of nitpicking, some of which turned out to defy his expectations since I've actually seen the second season and know what the characters were foreshadowing.

I actually agree with him that the character introductions were generally annoying, but then he likes Chivalry more, and that had even more absurd and obnoxious characterization, so I'm like confused_nick_young.png. (Compare Julis's "you saw me in an embarrassing moment so I'm going to beat you up!" with Stella's "you saw me in an embarrassing moment so I'm going to beat you up and then make you my slave!".)

Aside from that, he's mainly just nitpicking over his hate for clichés (e.g. he feels Ayato is too perfect, basically), his personal desire for the setting to be something more to his liking (basically he would have preferred it to be a cyberpunk setting), and a variety of little "but this doesn't make sense!" and "but that doesn't make sense!" complaints which neglect the fact that rarely is every little detail deviating from real life in a non-realistic setting explained and for that matter some of them are actually some of them are setups that are explained much later.

Meanwhile, he clearly does not address a number of positive qualities of the show, such as its overall aesthetic which was very cohesively presented (with more consistency than Chivalry), and which he criticized because it didn't match his vision for a more interesting show. And he only very briefly makes like one single mention of Rasmus Faber's music. And of course he even bother watching the second series which covers more of the story including addressing various details raised in the first season. (He clearly wasn't the intended audience; he admits as much; I don't really blame him for not continuing, but I do fault him for not limiting the scope of his criticisms. Besides he still is also a prominent youtuber so making a giant 12-part series shitting on the show does raise eyebrows, but I'm not really sure how to quantify this aspect, or whether it should factor into my assessment of his video series at all.)

A recent conversation about this with an offsite friend suggests to me that what Digibro is specifically prizing something that he feels is different and thereby both interesting to him and has value in advancing the medium as a whole (whatever that might mean). Whereas I'm looking for a story that's well put together and enjoyable on its own. So essentially, Digibro prioritizes the metacontext of the medium, while I prefer to focus on a story in isolation from the rest of the medium. I feel an approach like his puts too much emphasis on novelty value and doing things differently than before.

(Also I think he liked Chivalry more in part because the main character had darker shades to his backstory (and also had more of his backstory presented earlier), and because the ecchi scenes arguably "went further" in displaying the two lead characters' romance via sexual tension whereas Asterisk War never did as much in that regard, and even in its second season it shows Julis and Ayato growing more trusting of each other in a personal way but doesn't make much of a display of sexuality, rather choosing to focus on their cooperation as a team.)


Cool you got me hooked, I'll give Asterisk a try since its on netflix and hopefully let you know how I found it lol

Not that I disagree, I did find the change of Yukiteru absolutely ridiculous as well, but that's just extremely ironic coming from someone with Kaneki avatar, lmao. That guy had the exact same thing happen as Yuki. Author decided 'time to get him badass finally' so it happens.

Who said anything about Kaneki tho? When did I even say Kaneki had a good character development? Every character has their downside, no character is perfect. The reason why I hate Yuki or other characters in MN isn't even their bad development. Other guy brought up the character development. Reason I hate Yuki is because he is a whiny brat.

Quite an unpopular opinion. Most people prefer Z above the rest

Seconding SAO. I have a complicated relationship with that show that evolved over years, I used to love it, then thought about it a bunch and end up hating it, then started liking it ironically, and now I'm enjoying it for real, embracing the good and bad. I think it's not bad, just really dumb at times.

Another one would be Mayoiga, I feel a lot of people don't get that it's a comedy because it's never clearly explained and it's always played seriously but I found it pretty hilarious.

Just to be clear, even though I say it's less bad I still found various parts of the early episodes to be somewhat of a slog to go through, particularly any time it tried to get into those frequently-awkward romance moments with stuff like characters overreacting, being rather inappropriately forward, or otherwise doing seemingly stupid things. And the early episodes did in fact make Ayato come off as an overpowered protag. I guess my point is, if you get annoyed by these tropes, you probably won't enjoy the slog, but if you do like or are fine with these tropes and/or you're willing to take them as-is and keep going, you'll find more interesting aspects of the show, particularly after the show is done introducing characters and thus has less need to make hay of the romantic rivalries.

I watched it dubbed (in American English of course) and enjoyed it more that way, but YMMV on whether you like dubs, of course.


BTW @HopefulNihilist I should probably add that I also agree with Digibro's criticism that Ayato (the male lead of Asterisk War) comes off as an overpowered protagonist, but if that's a criticism, then Chivalry is even more guilty of it because Ikki (the male lead of Chivalry) is arguably even more overpowered.

Re:Zero it gets a decent amount of hate but I honestly thought it's the greatest isekai to be written. It had me hooked from the start and I thought Subaru was a great main character.

Code Geass, both seasons, get a good amount of hate too. I didn't think R2 was a trainwreck at all. It was easy to follow and it made sense and was so fun to watch. I see no glaring flaws in the series, it has little ones but there was nothing too huge.

Basically every popular scapegoat anime that everyone likes to hate on solely because everyone else is doing it and thus they want to be amongst the cool people and do the only socially accepted thing by following along. In reality they don't even know why they're hating on it or what's supposedly so bad about it, they've just been indoctrinated by the general public opinion to assume that to be the absolute truth rather than to think for themselves

Some of the more well-known examples of this silly phenomenon include Sword Art Online, Naruto, Tokyo Ghoul, Akame ga Kill, Eromanga-sensei, Mirai Nikki, Fairy Tail, Erased as well as a myriad of different harems and isekai series that people automatically label as trash before even watching them (yet they still apparently watch them for no other reason than to trashtalk them afterwards lol)

It's childish but well that's the anime community for you


Edit: Just to clarify, I personally dislike several of the series I mentioned too but that's not the point. The bandwagon hate syndrome is most certainly a problem in this community regardless

In my humble opinion.

School Days - does not
Hellsing tv - does deserve

Btoom - does not
Guilty Crown - does not
Berserk 2016 - does deserve
Shingetsutan Tsukihime - does deserve

lol shingetsutan tsukihime literally only got hatred. Maybe there where a couple of people that enjoyed it, but they are all silenced by the hate. Surely, it does deserve more hate than it got (which was quit a lot).

The Greed Island story arc of Hunter x Hunter. I don't get it why so many people hate this arc when this arc is one where the characters grows up more and learn how to use their abitilies more efficiently. In this arc we have that fucking awesome dodgeball match and even one of the darkest scenes in the anime when Gon destroys his own hand in a fight.

Just finished the first episode and oh boy they weren’t kidding when they said it’s chivalry’s twin. The episode was alright, I can tell they’re already setting up the protagonist’s backstory with his sister etc -hopefully the story arc for that will have a good execution.

Sword Art Online in my opinion is heavily overhated. It is without a doubt generic and kind of standard but there are so many worse anime in existence that get twice the hate.

G-Reco got hate because people were literally too dumb to follow what was going on. It does not deserve that score, at all. A random one but Comet Lucifer was hated because dancing vegetables were just too childish for the mature people that were watching that show while it aired. It was okay, probably deserves a 6 or something.

Naruto.
Needless to say that Naruto gets a lot of hatred mostly because of the fillers and people that just won't understand that flashbacks are a part of the story too.... But it actually has good story and dialogues, charismatic and well developed characters, comedy, drama and cool fights full of motivational messages.... it doesn't deserve that much hate.

I just went through the Godzilla anime trilogy and got way more out of it than I was expecting. It's true that they could have been better in places and the first one is just set-up (with an admittedly great final 30 minutes), but the last two became so much better! The second fleshes out the characters a bit more and puts them in some very tricky dilemmas, whilst the final film gets so much deeper with the philosophy and is a very satisfying conclusion to the trilogy, minus the kaiju battle not quite living up to the build up it receives.

Eromanga Sensei. It is genuinely a fun anime that really puts you into a good/happy mood. It has great music, good visuals, and fun and very likeable characters

90% of the people who "hate" Eromanga Sensei are blind sheep that jump on the bandwagon as soon as it comes right by them.

Imagine the kind of life style one person must lead to watch a show of their own accord and feel hatred for it. Not only that, but to let it consume their time by going online just to rant and rave about it, and persecute the people who like it. It's incredible.

Practically anything and everything that gets hatred from people online doesn't deserve it. People are just bored or some shit? Idk I can't fathom what goes on in their heads.
I'm also filled with pure-hearted ulterior motives.

OPMs2. I wonder about what tragic mental disabilities the hordes of connoisseurs who scored it a 1 after 1 episode (or 3, or 4, whatever) do suffer from, and while I feel really bad for them and their struggle, I just don't find s2 to be that offensive.
Is it as good as s1? Nope. Was it obscenely obvious that the animation would be worse before it even aired? Yup.
If you knew those things (and you would if you had two brain cells bonking around in your cranium), you still watched it and review-bombed it, beg pardon, you're just not very intelligent, to put it mildly.

I don't even like it a whole lot but the sheer ludicrous amount of hatred is so obnoxious that it beggars belief (or it would, if this weren't mal).

I'm going to go out on a limb with this one. By way of disclaimer, I haven't actually watched it only read the summary description. But it gets mentioned a lot, often being trashed...

Boku no Pico

It's yaoi/BL hentai. There's a target audience for that, and it's fairly niche. If fans of yaoi hentai want to hate on it, that's fair enough. But Boku no Pico has somehow become the poster child for anime that people like to point and laugh at and talk about how f**ed up it is, and in all likelihood most of these people aren't even in the target audience and have little or no interest in the genre. It's even become a running joke to mention it in reply to requests for recommendations, even where it's clearly outside the requestor's parameters (IMO, this is trolling).

Then again, all the hate may have brought it to the attention of some viewers who enjoyed it who might otherwise have never heard of it. An example of the adage that "there is no bad publicity" at work?

School Days, first and foremost. Many people dislike it for the characters, but it's not a beautiful romance story, but rather a dark romance one. I bet that barely anyone of the people trashing School Days even knows about the classic dramatic structure or what a Catharsis is.

The OST is magnificent, the viewer rises and falls with the main character. Btw.: Sekai is the actual detestable person in School Days, not Makoto:

Asterisk's War: The thing I hear about it often has me scratching my head. Saying how the main character is boring, he is Kirito reincarnated when he isn't. He actually has a goal a understandable one. It is much more concrete than Naruto's Becoming the Hokage. And Goku's goal of being the strongest ever. Ayato's goal is to find his sister, he is willing to put up with the Festa for this sole reason.

They have a bone to pick with Julis because she is a tsundere and just because she is a tsundere.

They are fine with Saya and like her because they say her goals are more to the point, though many dislike how she titters between dandere and deredere.

Kirin for her age and the fact that she is an oppai loli.

Claudia for being the typical seductress and write her off as one note.

I guess its because I read the LN I have a better understanding of the world and characters, I see the anime not as a mockery but something I look forward to. All the scenes building up to this moment. The fan service moments feel less forced and more rewarding. I guess its like when you read the light novel and you see the pictures sprinkled throughout you want to see more of them so it encourages you to read the manga, you want to see everything fleshed out in color so it makes you want to watch the anime.

Fairy Tail, no doubt. Sure the plot armor is thick in this one and the fanservice may ruin some moments, but people act as if the series doesn't have anything good, which it does, and a lot.

I mean it's shota porn, which, like its more popular counterpart, many people take issue with the mere existence of. When a show that's supposed to be only known by the few who go out of their way to seek it garners public attention via memes this is the expected result. In that sense I wouldn't say it's overhated, just unlucky.

This is gonna b obsolete and repetitive, but once again, School Days. B4 i get into anything, i just want 2b clear that i do not adore this anime at all, yet it deserves far better reception.

Long story short, good approach, peculiar and memorable plot with a befitting mean-spirited conclusion. But, poor production, poor romance, narrations often got abysmal, characterizations r unsatisfying (the main dude was ok idk y ppl hate him as a fictional character), cliche at times, artistic-wise is terrific (choreography, color pallet...).

Tbf, the source material could become far more eminent if it was congruously handled and written, and the directing could've been more effectual to avoid basic flaws. Tho poor thing is being bashed way too unfair imho.

InuYasha has a low amount of filler compared to most shounen and good character development and atmosphere, but many say its repetitive as if everything happens over and over again, when in fact it has lots of variation in how it is executed, Inuyasha and Kikyo meet again? thats the only thing that I can think of that is repetitive, and as I said there is variation in its execution and the specifics of what happens during thier meeting...
Naraku escaped again? well I am so sorry that you think this is the only thing that this anime is about, is not just that, sure he is one of the main causes of bad things, but each of the characters have thier own fights and struggles that happen for various reason which may or may not be directly related to Naraku that you should have really paid more attention too...

Gundam SEED/Cosmic era is hated but to me it was simply a more entertaining version of the original Universal Century timeline

2) the Anime of School Days isn't meant to be a happy romance story, it's more of a modernized, classic drama
3) please give some examples
4) I don't get why Makoto gets all the hate, either, when it should be Sekai that should be disliked the most
5) the OST is very good, though, and I find the Visuals more than good enough. What do you mean with color pallet? It's not meant to show an extremely brightly-colored, lovey-dovey show. In contrast: the pale appearance even fits the whole concept much better

Fairy Gone doesn't deserve the hate it gets just because it doesn't hold your hand when it comes to storytelling and sets up several important players and factions at the same time

I beg to differ, Irregular at Magic Highschool is probably the worst thing I’ve ever watched. Boring OP protagonist with a horrible story and setting.

Psycho Pass 2. It's needlessly violent and gory and it's not as good as first season, but it's overall a decent sequel, even if Kogami is not present here, I enjoyed it more than the film.

Long story short, good approach, peculiar and memorable plot with a befitting mean-spirited conclusion. But, poor production (1), poor romance (2), narrations often got abysmal (3), characterizations r unsatisfying (the main dude was ok idk y ppl hate him as a fictional character)(4), cliche at times, artistic-wise is terrific (choreography, color pallet...)(5).
1) Anime is nowhere cheap
2) the Anime of School Days isn't meant to be a happy romance story, it's more of a modernized, classic drama
3) please give some examples
4) I don't get why Makoto gets all the hate, either, when it should be Sekai that should be disliked the most

I was trying to make things kinda short, but guess I'll delve a little bit more into it.

1. Poor production ranges from art and animation to OST as we would expect, I think this is not a strong or pivotal criticism as this is just my point of view, which I believe they didn't have a good quality in terms of that. Tho I want to emphasize about my point on the OST. I think it did a fair job in delivering the tone, but there's nothing significant, and I was kinda disappointed about the music choice in the killing scene (not bad at all, just plain and forgettable)

2. I agreed, that's why i liked the conclusion and the unique plot as mentioned, but romance isn't clear enough for me. I get that the main point is to focus on things that happened after they fell in love, but I am utterly curious how and why they fell in love with such a guy, it was just too vague and I felt that they had to avoid explanation (at least I want to be clearer why the two main female protags r so desperately in love w him like that)

3. Yes, exactly what I said. Storytelling in the last 2 episodes were quite remarkable, otherwise I did not feel intrigued in how they tell stories, I really think this point I'm making isn't strong so I'll rewatch soon, but that's how I remember it.

4. I don't think Sekai should be hated either tho, she's decent in terms of character, but the way she fell in love with Makoto is unclear to me (I understand how she fell in love, but I'm not convinced enough that it's realistic)

5. I hated the dull color pallet in all honesty. Don't get me wrong I understand that a gritty and dark show should be as well dark regarding its color, but how they blend it is not great enough. Firstly, School Days is dark but should not be lifeless, I simply think it should be more vibrant. Secondly, the background often doesn't work with what is going on on screen, that's how I feel at least.

91 Days seems to be disliked by a lot of people when honestly it was amazingly captivating. One of my all time favorite movies being Goodfellas, it really captures the crime families/mafia aesthetic along with the way mafioso operated well.

Blood Lad also gets written off as generic vampire nonsense it seems but I remember it very fondly, not just as something I enjoyed, but something I genuinely liked.

Lastly, as the only ecchi series I could ever stomach I'd say Hagure Yuusha no Aesthetica and Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou deserve a mention. They're certainly no gems and its been forever since I've watched them but I remember them being quite fun and captivating throughout.
