Sure, Gundam actually got me start to LIKE mecha for the first time when I watched it back in 1979 (yes I am old LOL) when MazingerZ etc really did not work for me. That said I can't say I am a fervent fan as I stopped faithfully following Gundam ever since Gundam ZZ. Gundam 0080 and the Char's counterattack movie were the only ones that I actually sought to watch it (in those days things were not as simple as now when you can get whatever anime you want with just a few mouse clicks).

It is not about how dense MAL users are. You want to use slang words that are understood within your circle. MAL has lots of users from different background, not everyone understands the term your way. And there is no denying that a word like "plotless" carries the meaning of, well, no plot. You cannot use that word and then complain about misunderstanding when it is understood that way, particularly since you gave absolutely no elaboration when you used "plotless fujoshit" in your very short post.

> So I can express my opinion I feel like

Of course you can, but depending on how you express it people may have different reactions. They can also express their reactions they feel like. And if you use some words that are likely to trigger strong reaction or get misunderstood, then you should not put the blame on the other side for getting those response.

Well, that is your definition. But for a person who does not know much about the anime, plotless means, well, no plot. Your use is just a way to twist the word into a general derogatory remark and that carries the risk of getting people to misunderstand as well.

Highschool of the Dead and K both have a plot, and sometime not even a bad one. You can say the series lack balance because too much of it is spent on fanservice but of course the question of what constitutes good balance differs from person to person. So just because you don't like its abundance of fanservice or poor pacing (more like poor balance I'd say) does not mean it is "plotless".
symbv May 27, 2013 9:58 AM
That is fine, but perhaps a more thoughtful use of words and phrases is better. Otherwise all people can see about your view of the anime is that it is a "plotless fujoshit" which takes no account that there is actually a plot (being poorly paced is one thing, being plotless is something entirely different) or that fujoshi form only a small portion of its fanbase.

> But can you deny that it does not cater to them as well?

That is one thing. Your classification of the anime as "plotless fujoshit" is something else. Calling it "fujoshit" (and nothing else) has the implication that the anime is there only for the fujoshi (and it is a shit on top of that). My rejection of your classification does not mean that I reject the idea that the anime caters to fujoshi as part of the target audience.
symbv May 27, 2013 9:12 AM
The only word you use for the anime is "plotless fujoshit". Both are very questionable. You cannot deny the latter looks like an attempt to label the anime is nothing but for fujoshi.

> Refers to Yaoi & BL fandom/readers which are mostly women.
And don't forget that does not mean most women are yaoi & BL fans. Referring to female fans as fujoshi just because K appeals to female viewers are at best mislabelling and at worst bigotry.
symbv May 26, 2013 10:52 PM
> Though is it an insult to them?
If a big portion (perhaps the majority) of the female viewers are not BL fans, calling all of them as "fujoshi" is just pigeonholing the fans as being all "fujoshi" which is an erroneous over-sweeping way of sticking labels, and using it together with the word "shit" indicates derogatory intent too.
symbv May 26, 2013 10:29 PM
And K has a lot of female fans who are not into Yaoi & BL. They perhaps make up more of the viewers than BL fans (i.e. fujoshi)

Oh yes, the way you use the word to describe all the female viewers and put it in the word "fujoshit" indicates you meant it as an insult.

MAL's got it listed as a 4 part OVA, plus I think I heard the one being released soon being reffered to as "part 1"
I've got a few gripes with the look of the trailer, though the main one that comes to mind is that they changed Batou's VA T_T

Haha really? thats quite the curious mistake....

I'd also assume you've seen more anime than your MAL profile indicates ;)
