Basically what i want to know about are,the animes or mangas, which you guys never thought, would become so popular, or the series, which you guys think , does not deserve its popularity, either due to bad characters,story or animation.


For me, it's definitely Shingeki no kyojin and OPM

Fyi,i really like Snk, and really think that it deserves to be popular, but definitely not as much as it has now become.What makes me stop, from giving it a perfect score, is it's main whiny protagonist and bad art(for manga) along with some other minor problems.

OPM,on the other hand is a series which i never really liked,from the characters to story, there is nothing interesting about this series,which is a surprise,as i really loves superhero genre and an overpowered Mc, the only saving grace is its beautiful art by murata sensei

There are few other series too, which i think does not deserve its popularity but these two are at the top

I always thought that SnK didn't feel as popular as it looks on MAL.
Sure the plot description is really interesting but it doesn't perform as well after the strong beginning until at the final arcs.
Along with that one punch man rising to popularity so much was also very unexpected.
"You are the result of 4 billion years of evolution. Act like it."
"Why don't you eat make up? Then you can be beautiful on the inside too."
"'Sick'? Call me 'twisted'. 'Sick' makes it sound like there's a cure."
"What's messed up isn't my thinking, what's messed up is this god damn world."
"The world isn't perfect, but its out there doing the best it can for us. That's what makes it so damn beautiful."

I do think some animes are overrated, but overall I still do understand why others appreciate them.

- I am no fan of SnK, but I understand people like the cruel side of it. No character is ever safe, that makes it epic to follow!

- As for OPM, what made it popular is the concept itself. Case in point: the beginning is the most popular part, whether that be for the anime or the manga. It's just so good to discover, but then, it becomes dull and boring.

- I hated Your Name, but I understand people feel attached to it for the emotions it gave them.

- I've never even been curious about Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, but it stands out so much from the average anime. I'm pretty sure that's what people like most about it (that, and the memes xD).


The only one I don't understand at all is Gintama. I just can't find any appeal to it, yet it seems to be a big phenomenon...
Everything changes. Even the happy and funny things eventually disappear. How can I still enjoy this place then?
- Furukawa Nagisa (Clannad)

You have to make a choice. Either you give up on your soul for the sake of science, or you give up on science to save your soul. In my case, the soul was already in pieces.
- Lloyd Asplund (Code Geass)

Do you understand the meaning behind Nunnaly's smile? She can't see or walk. So there are things in this world that she knows she can't do alone. Her smile... is her only way to show gratitude.

No all anime that are popular are popular for a reason, it means that are people that do enjoy them even if you don't.
People in general have a different tastes.

I just don't understand why is it so difficult to grasp that others like things that you don't and vice versa.
This is like 10th tread with the same question why is X(overrated,underrated,popular,unpopular,hated,loved,etc...) and the answer is the same different anime fans have different taste.

- Akame Ga Kill : I don't know why it is popular. For me at least, the story is not really interesting and beside Akame, the other character is just like there for Akame only.

- SAO : Well, I guess I know why it is so popular, and has a lot of haters at the same time. Because the premise is so good, yet people keep watching it just to follow it.

- SNK : I like the show, but the protagonist almost made me drop it. I mean, c'mon, beside from season 3 part 2, Eren is just a typical shonen character.

- Tate No Yusha : Again, good premise but then it just become a franchise with "cute" girl, but I'm actually surprised that people still love it.

- Kimi No Nawa : I watched it, but it is just an average romance movie. Nothing is really new and, well...it's not sad at all (for me at least). I watched Hotarubi No Mori e, and it's much more better than it. Sadly, it's not popular.

- Darling in the franXxx : I don't know why, but I just hate the main character. It become popular just because of someone. But again, I don't really like bad MC, even though the others is kinda okay.

I think it's popular because more people watch it than ever before. Shounen is like portals to different dimension and attack on titan just happened to be where the unusual stuffs happening. I don't watch Jojo but I think it's fair for it's popularity given how people enjoy making memes out of it.

Angel Beats' popularity is still a mystery to me. I don't think it's bad but #10 popular anime of all time is strange... The same for Death Parade

I don't mention any shounen and isekai cuz they're all popular and we can't do anything about them.

-After a lot of thinking to myself I still have no damn clue what the interest in Overlord is.
-Another one is Your Name. The movie is fine, but doesn’t deserve the rating it gets on mal.
-Oregairu is also fine but I found so many issues with it I almost dropped it. I guess I can see the appeal in it with the main character but the drama and everything else was awful.

Agree with your review about Your name,i also found it to be incredibly generic romantic drama, which you can find in most of the romance anime's and yet, for some reason, it became so popular and although i also liked it, but not as much as many others who gave it perfect 10

Darker than Black. I don't really see what's so great about it, besides some of the action choreography. Also, the story is really vague, with not really a decent ending.

I want to say Evangelion, but I think me saying that is just a product of time. I watched it last year, and didn't understand the hype at all, because I had seen quite a few shows that just did that style of storytelling better. If you put it in its timeframe, though, you can see how many things it inspired.

But on its own, I stand by the statement. I don't think it's all that.

Youjo Senki is my number one response. Not because I found it bad or anything (I enjoyed the series myself), but because I never thought that an anime with such ridiculous premise (Japanese salaryman dies and gets reincarnated into an arian military loli) would get so popular among anime fans. I thought the general reaction would be something like Killing Bites, something dumb, but enjoyable, but, nope, it ended becoming one of the most popular anime of the season and the year. These days, I'm still wondering how it became so noteworthy.

So your argument is that people like and dislike different things but then you're upset that different people dislike different things?


I will never understand how Re: Zero, Shield Hero and Attack on Titan got as popular as they did.

I agree that there's nothing really great about it but the main character is probably what made the show popular.

I'm not upset that different people like or dislike different things I respect other people preferences.
I only have a problem with people who demand from others to like/dislike whatever they like/dislike.

I'm not sure where did you get the idea that I'm upset but nevertheless I hope this clears any misconceptions.

Well you did go "all anime that are popular are popular for a reason" in a thread asking which anime people cannot understand the popularity of. Thanks for clearing up any misconceptions though.

Death Note had the fortune of being one of the first anime to get a dubbed version shortly after the Japanese original and be broadcast abroad at prime time in a popular channel. While Monster was less fortunate, its license was cancelled and not all DVDs were released.


Same for late Ghibili movies. They are nowhere near the quality of previous decade when they won the Oscar, let alone their 80s and 90s films that also targeted older audiences. But they have traditional connections with Disney and Hollywood

In my opinion, these anime do not deserve the popularity they get:

Angel Beats!

Byousoku 5 Centimeter

Durarara!!

Gintama

Hana yori Dango

Hyouka

Kaichou wa Maid-sama!

Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica

Nagi no Asu kara

Saiunkoku Monogatari

Seirei no Moribito

Vampire Knight

Kaichou wa maid-sama and darling in the franxx. I just don’t see much of the appeal and they’re just very forgettable. But if someone found some enjoyment in them why should I ruin the fun, at least someone got something out of them

Its usually not hard to see why a time and place equals a product that gets big, if it's deserving or not.

The only one that kinda puzzles me but I KINDA GET IT are any of Makoto Shinkai's work. I get they're pretty to look at but are people just starved for same looking heterosexuals to fall in love with one another in dramatic fashion. Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo is unwatchable and if you've watched basically any Ghibli movie you've done better and the backgrounds look good yes but the characters don't give you anything to remember or want more for.

I agree with your main assertion concerning Shingeki no Kyojin, I don't know why SNK has become as popular as it is, I've put the second season on hold atm as I was finding it hard to get through. Despite all the hype I just don't find it engaging enough to keep me hooked, watching one episode after another.

The first season really drew me into its world and certainly piqued my interest, but I've felt the second season has been somewhat of a let dow. I've heard that the 3rd season and ending sound interesting so expect I'll resurrect S2 at some point and push through.

The one that left me puzzled the most was undoubtedly angel beats. Death note I can fully well understand why it became popular, cringy edgy male teens are and were a sizable chunk of anime viewership but even when trying to put myself in someone else's shoes, I can't still understand angel beats' popularity. It doesn't do anything better than any other anime I've watched, it's the basic definition of "average" so far as I'm concerned.

That's it. Other anime I don't really agree with their score/fanbase but I can definitely see why they'd be so popular.

Elfen Lied, Akame ga Kill and the Tokyo Ghoul sequels. (Especially S2 and S4)
I guess the appeal for Akame was the fact
Elfen Lied, it's alright but I guess it was THE edge show that just got popular.
Tokyo Ghoul sequels ... - I guess it's just popular because of it's name now and the known popularity from the manga and first season.
Tokyo Ghoul:Re worked quite well because it was set as a timeskip but if you dont follow it up with anytihng at all in the sequel to :Re ... just shame honestly.

After searching through multiple threads on AD i have come across the daily award for dumbest post of the day.

I;'m guessing you never watched "When Marnie was there" or "Tale of Princess Kaguya" cause those are both unabated masterpieces.

Hmm, this is hard, but I do agree with you, which is why I prefer the other version of the story(manga exclusive), which is about Takagi and her interaction with her daughter, which she teases a lot.

But there's a rising trend of teasing female characters towards male characters, a lot of their mangas are popular.

As for the thread, I still can't explain why I loved Shield hero before, now I hate it, but I'm not surprised why it got popular, or rather the majority of 24 episodes light novel anime.

Going to take an unusual opinion in this thread and say Steins;Gate. No matter how incredible the second half is, on a first viewing the first half is a complete slog to get into without much in the way of interesting characters (Okabe seems to get better later). Considering that’s **12 episodes* of mediocrity/a slog on the first watch it’s really surprising to me Steins;Gate is as popular as it is.

You've watched almost 3k anime and this is your opinion. Yikes.

Bland teenagers whose stories don't matter by the end of the film aren't my cup of tea and Shinkai's writing puts me to sleep (quite literally).

Seems like a you problem, not a Shinkai problem. Maybe you just can't appreciate good anime?

Miyazaki and Shinkai are different kinds of storytellers, its not right to say that one is better than another.

Kimi no na Wa is a great movie, as Chihiro, Mononoke and Nausicaa.

If you want to insult someone then pls insult the user, not the little old man Miyazaki.

Why do you do this?

Kimi no na Wa is better than anything Miyazaki has ever produced. Don't do this.

No disrespect to Miyazaki - he has 4 films in my top 10 all time (Spirited Away, Mononoke, Totoro, and Howl's moving castle)

But I do believe Kimi no na wa was better than any of them individually.

Let him be accursed
O Lord, Amen!
