There are lots of unpopular opinion threads out there, but I'm wondering if some people on this site like anime that is widely hated, or just generally disliked. I would share an anime of mine but the "hate" that they get is actually pretty small when I look back at it.

School Days is hated by quite a lot of people.. Some people found it ok or enjoyable, though.. I myself really loved it much.. Played the shit out of the visual novel - School Days HQ, I mean.. As I'm used to visual novels myself, I am personally ok with the thing that work can have some bad endings, it's not a problem for me.. Also about characters acting like not the best persons or making mistakes - also the thing that I consider to be matter of preference.. Sometimes you like characters who make mistakes, sometimes - not..

Evil or Live. I actually liked that show, but almost everyone who watched it (it isn't well known at all) hates it.

I've never seen HenSemi being liked the same way I do.

Most won't like it for the heavy fetishes, which might be disgusting, and even the few I've seen who do only like it as a comedy.

While I do admit it could've done more, that show had a psychological viewpoint on fetishes that can't be found anywhere else, it really was great for me.

I second this! I also liked School Days but I was rather baffled as to why so many people did not like it. But like you said, it is a matter of preference, and I personally greatly enjoy stories where the main character makes (huge) mistakes. Stories such as School Days imo tell such a good cautionary tale of what a person should not be like. And to me it is a good thing if you get to experience the "bad guy's" side. I do not mean the big bad villains but just people who are generally assholes or in School Days case, doormats. Not every protagonist has to be good and likeable in order to tell a good story, and not every good story has a happy ending, either, because guess what, life does not always go the way you want it to.

Don't think it's particularly disliked, but I'm surprised Gatchaman Crowds isn't more popular than it is. That show is awesome.

Also .hack//SIGN, everyone seems to think it's boring, but I love it

Dragon Ball GT and Digimon Adventure 02 are generally disliked sequels by the fans, and while I do agree that they are mediocre and left a lot to be desired, I still have fondness towards them.

Rosario + Vampire gets a lot of hate 'cause it stopped following the manga at some point but, while i can understand the frustration the manga readers might feel, i still thought it was a fun, entertaining show.

Though i admit i'm slightly biased 'cause it was the first ecchi/harem comedy anime i ever saw.

I just finished Shield Hero and thought it was pretty good. 7/10.

Looked good, sounded good, interesting premise and plot. Characters lacked a little depth but not too bad.

Biggest problem was inconsistency in the quality of the writing. Started off great, dipped hard when, for a few episodes, Motoyasu and Myne started to get reminiscent of Team Rocket, picked up again for the second wave and then Raphtalia's backstory / development, then kind of lost it's way again before ending pretty well.

There are other valid criticisms for it, I'm sure, but the amount of hate it gets is really staggering. It's not the 1/10 trashfire so many people seem to think it is. I followed the first half weekly and had to stop reading the discussion threads on r/anime (back when I still went to r/anime at all...) because the toxicity levels went through the roof.

Some people only watch shows to be able to shit on them. Sad.
Watching: Haganai NEXT.

Watching Weekly: Sounan Desu ka, Tejina-senpai, Kawaikereba, Takagi-san 2, Machikado Mazoku.

Recently Finished: Shield Hero (7), Shoumetsu Toshi (7), Midara na Ao-chan (6), Miru Tights (7), Fate UBW S1 (9) / S2 (10), Your Lie in April (9), Haganai (10).

Just wanted to say watching this now. Started it yesterday, probably finishing it tonight, and enjoying it immensely. I love the fact that it straps you in for a ride with Satou and doesn't let go or soften the journey. Feels like a nice and long, but much higher quality animated Lifetime drama movie. Such a nice balance of beauty and misery and how both can intertwine, both being like a drug, and doing vicious things to protect your source of happiness.

Underrated, but it's bound to turn a lot of people off because of the subject matter.

Island was pretty cool indeed. I liked it since when it aired I started to make theories with my friend. The ending wasn't the best but it was a cool anime.

IDK about 'everyone' because this is just never the case, but from the shows I have mostly or only heard negative opinions about I like:

Tenjou Tenge was pretty damn cool. I hear it doesn't do the source justice, but I believe it had cool fights and unique atmosphere, I also really liked the main cast. Also the opening is top tier. BOMB A HEAD.

Valvrave was so crazy and entertaining I just can't dislike it. Sure, it was questionable at times and seems stupid, but it definitely knew how to keep the audience occupied, the pacing was excellent.

Manyuu Hikenchou was well... It was what it was, but it was fun and funny, IMO. And the whole idea is so hilarious. I liked it.

It's obviously SAO isn't it! That being said I've made like 10 friends through a mutual love for SAO, and that brings me on to what I'm going to say next:

Even though I have 106 MAL friends, I've only had one conversation about Log Horizon since I joined MAL over a year ago - where the hell are all the fans, it's such a good show! Perhaps, if it ever makes a return, they'll all come crawling out the woodwork!

Also, I've stated on my profile that I'm really loving the US animation The Dragon Prince at the moment, but no-one wants to talk to me about that either it seems! Some of these Weebs don't know what they're missing out on :D

I'm actually liking Granbelm this season. The characters are interesting and remind me of the ones in Shoujo☆Kageki Revue Starlight, magical girl mecha is a pretty interesting concept, Masaharu Watanabe (the director of Re:Zero) is directing it, and Jukki Hanada (one of my favorite script writers who did series composition for Hibike! Euphonium, Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu, Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!, Nichijou, Steins;Gate, Yagate Kimi ni Naru and Sora yori mo Tooi Basho) is doing the series composition for it as well. Also, I think the animation looks good so far. It looks like a lot of people dropped already, though.

So like when I started watching anime, anything that'd get me hyped up I'd instantly like and easily put on a pedestal, considering I didn't have much let's say "emotional exposition" through entertainment (books, tv series, movies). Actually I did have a lot, but less in the "adrenaline/hype" department, and usually that emotional exposition would make me totally immersed into the entertainment (anime, in this case) and I wouldn't realize the problems with it. This is what happened with me when I watched Mirai Nikki already a year and a half ago when I didn't have much experience with anime. I wouldn't mind all the plot holes and stupidity of it's character as long as it kept me wildy interested and thrilled to see what would happen next. I remember like a month after finishing the series (which was my favorite at the time, like every show I'd be watching at the time lol) I saw reviews of it explaining everything that was bad about it and it totally made sense but I couldn't just decide to stop liking it just because if I watched it with a different perspective I'd consider it bad, the emotions I've felt while watching the show were true and not erasable. So now I just now it's not as good as I thought it was, but don't want to confess it's bad nor rewatch it because I'm sure that I'd be totally blasted by the stupidity of some of the things mentionned in the reviews of it. Also saying Mirai Nikki is bad just because MC is a whining bitch isn't valid criticism, imagine if I said X show is bad because MC is cheerful and can deal with the shits that happen to him properly. Not trying to brag or anything like that but like it makes years I haven't cried, last time being after finishing Firewing (great book trilogy) already 4 years ago (I'm 16), and having some problems in personal life + some kind of existentialism crisis (wonder if anyone had one when they were young) I'd usually cry myslef to sleep for a solid two years. So i feel like because of this anything relying on it's sadness doesn't hit me (examples: Anohana, Our happy hours, Silent Voice). This emotional exposition concept, I feel like, hasn't been touched a lot in some people, making them give automatically good scores in sad stories that makes them cry. At the end of the day, it's good for them if they were touched by something, and it made them like it more because a thing we don't have to forget is entertainment is entertainment, it can be art but what it is first and foremost is entertainment and even though something might be complete trash without it's emotional investment, the more people are happy with an entertainment the better.



Highly went off topic, but I like expressing myself with those kind of chunks of texts. Hope it makes sense and I'm not saying some high level shitpost, also those concept thingies aren't absolute truths, I just feel like they are concepts that are appliable in real life.
Anime is cool but manga is too so if you read this and don't have a manga list you better start one or imma spank yo ass

Sword Art Online is better than ur generic isekai, ur generic SOL, ur generic seasonal shounen.

And Shield Hero is one the best isekai since Re Zero and Konosuba.

Unlike all these generic LN adaptation / mass produced plot about op characters, school days actually managed to make me interested in the story. Just because the content is disagreeable, that doesn't make the show itself bad, and this is what most people can't look past.

The suspense in the drama throughout the show made me stay interested and the plot twists made me want to see more. While not my favorite anime of all time, I do think it is heavily underrated by others.

An anime that recently gets a lot of hate and rejection, and in it's time had a lot of attention: Lucky Star. it's not the best anime ever, but it's not so bad.
Other case should be Himouto Umaru-chan (I get it because she was always f****** her brother's life, but it has it's moments, even in the second season...)

Other was the 2nd season of One Punch Man. i saw a lot of people bitching around because this season would be animated by another studio, but I didn't see any difference or quality dropping, (maybe in the dynamic movements, but that's just minor problem) I enjoyed it too, like the first season.

While taking in mind that every work of fiction has its detractors, no matter how popular or well-regarded may be, I pick Mayoiga. I think it is one of the few of my favorite anime that is generally hated by everyone. While I can understand why most people dislike it and I get that it has a lot of flaws, I can’t help but love it with all my heart, both as a comedic trainwreck and as a story of confronting your past tragedies. I also like other anime who are regarded as disasters by the general audience, such as Ousama Game, Mahou Shoujo Site or Kämpfer, but I’m especially fond of Mayoiga, so that’s what I pick it.

Kiddy Grade. It's not "hated" but many say it's mediocre or substandard. I personally love it, especially the characters and the middle part of the story. The middle part of the story hits you like a hammer for how good the story becomes. I guess most people don't expect that since it has quite an average start.
