Because you're a Hipster?


It has nothing to do with being hipster, in fact there are dozens of hipsters watchingg mainstream 'anime' like SnK and SOA claiming that are the best, I hate those so called 'hipsters'.

Oh and don't use the word 'hipster' too fast, it's not the word for someone who's pointing out their hate.

That's why I made a question and not an affirmation!
And please explain me why it makes you hate the manga being popular

[/quote]Wait so you are immediately a hipster for finding Sao and AOT or I take it we might as well add the shounen kings, Vampire knight and everything that has been released in America that became way too popular for its own good the best ? isn't that a ''hipster'' way of approaching things ?

Also dont airqoute anime like that, it makes you look pretentious and thanks to you now I look pretentious for using the word pretentious.
Just because you don't like something doesn't mean you can lower its merit by doing this ''anime''.

Anyway I agree AOT vol 1 HAS TO GO! but that's it for me.
Just that blasted volume 1 that has been on the list for years now, still not getting it why it keeps selling so much.
I mean sure the anime was fantastic in almost every possible way from art direction to OST but its the first time I have seen an anime boost work so great.

I'm just glad that S&W is on that list. But believe me, that series if you give it a chance, I bet you'll love it.

P.S. Which one is SnK?

Kodansha USA must be rolling in so much money right now

For some odd reason the negative comments about snk puts a smile on my face. Their annoyance towards snk is my enjoyment. I pray that snk continues to be on this list so I can see more comments of people bitching and
crying like little children over some sales. Lol keep them coming folks I look forward to next weeks rants, and the week after, and the next week, and the week after. Basically I look forward every week with your displeasure towards snk. Cheer up guys at least you have something to focus your anger on. ;)

I don't understand why you can never take any sort of not-positive comments about Attack on Titan. Like srs. Not everyone is going to like your favorite series.

And it's not bitching and whining; it's more like we're saying, "AoT on the list again? Damn!" I love the series, and the manga is phenomenal, but it's pretty bizarre to see it on the charts for nearly two years in a row. If it were any other series it would've fallen off the top ten many many times since it's release.

Lol well I guess Attack on titan is now considered to be Christmas Gift Material.
Who would knew.

Dec 28, 2014 12:10 PM by Punkbeetle

Waste your life in hate and whining.



People should be happy that a series keep selling good in a non-domestic market, but apparently the end of the world came instead ^^

It's good the SnK franchise supports its sales, 'cause the Aria's adventure was no good. The OVA fixes it, though.

damn Attack on Titan still going strong.
