Is Gintama good?
I can only speak in terms of having watched the anime, but the answer depends on your particular tastes.

If various styles of comedy (including some crude), mixed together with an absurd (yet brilliant) setting and cast of characters, as well as the occasional shift from absolutely hilarious to dead-ass serious sounds appealing to you, then yes. Definitely yes.

oh... so if somebody likes what you don't like you considered them to have a bad taste ?
the logic is strong with this one....

LOL beelzebub sales is so pathetic, :( I wouldn't be surprised if it would end soon.... but I hope it won't, on the other hand SnS is strong as always, just gonna wait here for anime adaptation

In Naruto's case there's not much room for discussion since it's just that bad.


You're entitled to your own opinion, but at least respect others as well. This "Their opinion doesn't match mine, therefore their whole country has poor taste" bullshit is arrogance in its finest form.

I don't want an argument, just wanted to voice my opinion. Whether Naruto deserves praise or not is irrelevant, but the fact that you think your opinion is much more higher than others is ridiculous.

Regarding Nisekoi, people should remember that even though it's #5 on the charts, it only sold about as much as it did for it's last volume and the volume before that. Sales have not increased much for it in recent volumes. Just saying. Heck, there have been times when a manga could be #1 on the charts and only sell about 200k.

Sep 14, 2013 10:46 AM by phoenixalia

Oh wow, Medaka box is still selling! that makes really happy and oregariu still selling decently, this is a good week :)

Perhaps because the anime announcement?

Perhaps because Japanese have bad taste? Just look at Naruto over there :°D

I'm a bit lost here. Comparing a popular manga with regular morning timeslot with new manga like Nisekoi is a bit stretch, honestly.

And i thought people here have outgrown from "Because XxX has bad taste" kind of argument. It seems i was wrong

Sadly yes, as if Naruto is not hated enough in these forums. I cringe hard whenever I see someone says Japanese people have bad taste, this level of stupidity is beyond my comprehension.

Really? Naruto is just bad and it's not worth discussing why? according to what exactly, some universal objective law that you only know about perhaps?. I'm willing to bet that you can't even back up your shit, if your life depended on it. Nothing new here though, maybe try to grow up and stop posting your one liners.

After watching episode 329 of shippuden I just accepted that people who call Naruto bad are simply too biased due to it's popularity and success.

Japanese might have bad taste but Naruto also tops the Graphic Novel charts(which include other graphic novels besides Manga like The Walking Dead) in US also.
As alanwake said. Honestly, those who said "xxx has bad taste" is just being self-important -- thinking he alone has good taste. And saying "Japan as bad taste" even carries a whiff of cultural supremacy mindset - thinking people from a foreign culture must have inferior taste, even though the product being commented on is mainly produced by that culture for the people brought up in that culture. Worse, it even ignored the fact that the "bad taste" is not limited to that foreign (Japanese) culture but a lot of people from his own culture too.


On Topic:

A LOT of Kagerou Days !!

LOL at you pathetic haters. Saying its "bad" without backing it up. Your claim is invalid.

Glad to see Gintama up there ^^ now hurry with the next anime season.
