Seeing people giving 10/10 and 8/10s is hilarious. Their reasons in the reviews are shallow, but the fans will eat it up no matter what. It's clearly obvious how much the praise of reviews and increase in scores are bots.

My thoughts exactly. I'm glad people understand me, lol. I just turn off my brain and indulge in the pure entertainment of a trash show.

I feel that while I was "attacking" only the works itself, you're trying to attack me directly instead of my criticism of it. Ad hominems aren't exactly helping you.

Well, yes, considering that I try to have most of my ratings objective, I do believe that most of my ratings are objective. If you're ratings are purely subjective that's fine, but don't assume that's true for others too.

"unless you can justify why your preferences are objective or better than anyone elses"
I mean, that's what the reviews are for. Of course, human can never be 100% objective, but that doesn't mean one shouldn't aim for it. For me, the more some claim is, the less it can be counterarguet against. And condidering you haven't actually disproved any of my points and are instead trying to go full "hurr durr there is no objectivity so you're wrong", there's your answer, unless you feel like arguing about the actual content of that review.

Again, it's a false comparation. Humans have different taste palletes meaning of course some food will taste bad to them by default. The default state of visual media on the other hand are processed the same by everyone (unless you have some eye defects). Also, there are things like cooking techniques and such that can be objectively judged even without some childish "but I don't like this kind of food so objectivity doesn't exist".

"there are tons of interesting features to Solo Leveling"
And what's interesting about them? I mean, most of what you've named are basically things that aren't even important to the storyat all. It's just wishful thinking, the story is really just about "me bonk bad guys".

"I gave you several points on what the story is about beyond just the OP nature of the MC"
You didn't, in fact. Well, you did name some parts of the story you think were interesting but only in the comment that responded to it, so unless you're going to say that I should have divined out your future responses, that reply doesn't make sense.

Anyway, as I've said, try actually arguing against the points I've made in the review instead of trying to argue against the concept of objectivity, which is as I've already said is just attempt to divert attention. Actually, would objectivity not be real, there is no reason and meaning at all to this conversation as we would just be both stating our own fully subjective opinions that would be both and right at the same time, no?

"There is no objective good" is just a cheap phrase used by people who don't have arguments to defend their favourite show/book/comic/etc. No, I'm saying that Solo Leveling objectively isn't good. If someone would intentionally cook something that tastes awful or even just intentionally bland, would you say the food is good just because there was intention to not be great?

"Like what were the creators trying to do?"
I rease you the Death of the Author concept. The authors intentions are irrelevant, what is judged is only the work itself.

"How does it stand against shows of the same or similar genre in terms of its goals?"
I've already mentioned in my previous reply that it's not good even when compared to similar works.

"To give an example, can I say that a rom-com is bad because it doesn't have enough action in it, and I like and anime with lots of action?"
While that would certainly be stupid, it's afalse comparison to "this story is bad because it doesn't have interesting story". Having a good story isn't a genre. And if you are going to reply with "but gag comedies don't have story" or similar, just know that by responding with that you're reducing Solo Leveling to something without a plotline, a B movie with no interesting points besides the action, and the structure action scenes of Solo Leveling gets repetitive fast, so it's not going to get good rating juding based on that either.

"Overlord is debatable because it revolves more around strategy and political strife, even though the basic premise is the same"
Well yes, it actually has some point besides "MC wins everytime". Same with OPM which is better thanks to having the parody dimension to it.

Well, yes, if all harem has are bit-titted girls going after oblivious MC, I'm going to rate it low, because it's not a good show. Harem anime tend to be not good by default, after all. It's not my fault the work isn't trying to be something good, and I'm not going to lower my expectations just because it has given up.

"and it accomplishes that better than any of the same kind of "genre" that have ever done it before"
No, no it doesn't. Overlord and One Punch Man do it much better, for example.

Funny story about me starting my anime journey. My first anime was Re:Zero(critical acclaim series). It was actually introduced by my sister.

To go even further, I watch Magica Madoka + Terror in Resonance with my sister back then(I was not invested into anime yet).

Later on, SAO was on my plan to watch list. I was surprised by the amount of hatred by the anime community. So, I watched it. I was amazed throughout the whole series. I was entertained af.

To start our conversation, what your thought on SAO? and it mixed reception in the community.
ApacheSnow69 Jan 9, 2020 9:31 PM
Hello :)

Oh man, it weird that I didn't start a conversation with you yet. You are the few MAL user that I send friend quest to(since I created this account in 2017).
