There's one for Pokemon and Gaming so I decided to bring it here! :D just for Lapras

Anyways Basically what you do is post some opinion you state any and all anime related opinions you have that you think are unpopular among the Anime/Manga community. And an extra note PLEASE don't attack someone else for their comments. You may disagree with them, but keep it civil.

For me the one that sticks out the most is how much I hate Elfen/Lied. I just hated the characters, animation, story, and everything... ugh... I can't stand that show >.<

Also I don't really like alot of shonen shows: Naruto, One Piece, Bleach (after a certain point) the list goes on and on.

Oh and SAO can go die along with it's fan girls ;D

Even though it's got iffy pacing and lots of other flaws, it's still a fun ride (which is the most important thing I seek out in a series)! >:(

A potentially unpopular opinion I hold is that I thoroughly enjoy the Pokemon anime, yet think the first season was actually among the worst seasons for the anime.

I also like dubs more than subs. This recently changed.

    Hi this is my first post

    - SAO is okay. But it got overrated and the second arc isn't as good as the first so meh.

    - I don't know if this is an unpopular opinion, but Toriko is terribly bad.

    - Watching Bleach after the Soul Society Arc is cancerous to your health. Stay away.

    - Shingeki no Kyojin is good, but when you read the manga and get to the latest chapters, it gradually bores me more and more.

    I agree with the previous posts saying SAO is overrated. Aside from Kirito being the main character, there was nothing that kept me interested, especially when they decided to send them to another MMORPG. Like, what?

    Never understood the hype for Naruto, One Piece, and Fairy Tail. Never watched the latter 2 series and Naruto I stopped watching after 100 episodes. Naruto's voice was getting on my nerves.

    Eotenas are boring crap.
    Naruto is repetitive and filler-filled mediocre overhyped anime.
    Aku no Hana is the worst anime ever created.

      Swords Art Online being bad is an unpopular opinion?

      though from a writing, mass appeal, and execution standpoint that may very well be true since my favorite anime is either Haruhi or Genshiken depending on the alignment of the planets, and sometimes it's even Pokemon, and many of the jokes require an understanding of the subcultures tied to the series in a way

      Another unpopular opinion I have is that the Endless Eight was one of the best things to ever happen in an anime. EVER. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

      And that Angel Beats was good but overhyped.

        well obviously lol, if you haven't watched OP and FT how do you expect to understand?

        Um, probably my only unpopular opinion is that I didn't think Neon Genesis Evangelion was really good. I watched all the episodes and then the Rebuild movies just to see if those would be better, but they weren't imo. =/

        Good point XD But it's personal preference that I don't like either one of their concepts/themes Another unpopular opinion of mine would have to be character-related: Inoue Orihime from Bleach is the only female character I've actually liked (though her seiyuu makes her slightly annoying at times), but her personality is one I can even relate to.

          I actually like the Pokémon anime, unlike people who say "it isn't mature/hardcore/Ash is a ******* n00b".

          Less unpopular that Eotenas being bad but still unpopular, I guess.

          While One Piece is a masterpiece and Fairy Tail could pretty much be the most interesting long running shounen, long running is still long running, it gets boring after a while :/

          I definitely did not watch it while it was airing. Got introduced to Haruhi too late to catch it airing live. I sort of marathoned it, roughly 2 or 3 episodes a night, so I was able to catch some of the subtle differences between episodes.

          Okay...that makes sense.
          You can only say that Endless 8 was good when you weren't waiting each week for something new =/

          I have a feeling I might have enjoyed it some while it was airing, though. Watching the fanbase rage might have made it more enjoyable, hahaha.

            I think watching Hetalia is worse than having your appendix pulled without anesthetics. Watching countless pathetic attempts at ethnic humor is painful. I consider ethnic humor to be along the lines of black comedy (no pun intended).

              Well yes, but that's not what I was addressing lol. I was saying that since Vanille Sky hadn't watch any of the latter at all, then how could they understand the hype or not? I didn't say anything about shows being long running or boring or anything.

              Also, I thought of more! I thought Free! was really bad. I guess this is an unpopular opinion because I see it everywhere. I also really didn't like Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun or Kaichou wa Maid-sama, but they weren't as bad as Free!

              Here we go:

              - Mirai Nikki, SAO, Infinite Stratos and Elfen Lied are among the worst anime I've seen. Like, at least Mirai Nikki is somewhat enjoyable so it is watchable. SAO is okay for a while but then it goes south...really fast. IS and Elfen Lied are just plain bad. Just...bad. Heard Elfen Lied manga is good, though. Will check that out.
              - I think FT is highly overrated. As in, it is a popcorn shounen with plenty of asspulls and problems but is fun as long as you can overlook those problems. But it is nowhere near the "Great" show people consider it to be.
              - I personally think the One Piece anime (NOT the manga), as of now, sucks (still have it as 10 on MAL cuz bias for manga lel). It suffers from bad pacing and animation. It was really, really great for the first few hundred episodes. Now...not so much. It desperately NEEDS filler arcs so that it doesn't need to have that ♥♥♥♥♥♥ 1-chapter/episode pacing.
              - One Piece manga is in a different league when it comes to world building and loveable characters. It being mentioned in the same sentence as Naruto, Bleach and Fairy Tail irk me. I consider all three highly inferior in comparison to OP. :p
              - Kill la Kill is one of the most enjoyable shows I've seen. Also, yes, I do think it has some themes incorporated in its narrative if you do look into it. It isn't just pointless fanservice with girls fighting using swords in skimpy clothing.
              - Gintama anime, contrary to what most people initially think, is not pointless. It is great and probably the best anime I've seen. :p

              EDIT: Moar
              - Attack on Titan is probably the most overrated series EVER. It blew up for no reason. Granted, first few episodes WERE good but then it drops the ball fast. The manga is just dragging at this point and I haven't read it for months. Its just THAT uninteresting. :/
              - Steins;Gate, with a 9+ rating on MAL, seems like a series quite a lot consider "really great". I don't think it deserves the hype, though. It is good, enjoyable and all but...not THAT good.

                Does anyone share this opinion with me?
                I love the one piece anime (I think anyone can tell), but it has way too many flashbacks of stuff we've already seen on the show. Not like flashbacks of stuff in the past, I mean flashbacks of one scene a few episodes ago. So annoying. And the "previously on one piece" kinda stuff at the beginning is way too long.
                These things annoy me so much! But the rest is great.

                Deep Thoughts...
                The people of the Pokémon world aren't too creative. They named Pokémon after what sound they make. If we were like them, a cow would be called a "moo".

                I'm Reading...
                Just finished a volume of Soul Eater, volume 14. At this point, it has become very different compared to the anime, and I kind of like it. Some of the characters have gotten a lot more fleshed out (specifically the meister team of Ox, Kilik, and Kim), and things are happening quite differently. An exciting read.

                I'm Playing...
                The iPod music game, Cytus. While I may not know very many of the songs, I really like its music, and the gameplay is easy to pick up yet takes quite a while to master. A friend has seen me play it and he says I make it look easy, but I am still having a fun and challenging time. Definitely worth the price.

                ^ well, of course. The OP anime runs close to the manga. So, in order to not catch up AND not make filler arcs AND to not take breaks, the anime chooses to have bad pacing - a one chapter per episode pacing. SO, they need to stretch out things in order to fill in an episode's time. Filler scenes are put inside canon parts, the intro part is there for padding and they just drag some scenes to no end. Honestly, seeing the anime adaptation of my favorite manga in such a horrendous state saddens me. :(

                  One Piece was boring and I gave up around episode 60. Too slow. Saying something considering I'm used to slow, long running series.

                  Levi in Attack on Titan was not an interesting character (he's normally praised).

                  Bleach's Bountou arc was good.

                  Naruto Shippuuden (minus the filler) has been a fantastic run.

                  ^ 2010-2012 me would've gone "ur tastes suck" on you both. :p But I can see why you guys would consider OP slow. I personally think it was just the right pacing for the first 300 episodes.

                  Then it began to drag. But I still enjoyed it because I marathoned a major part of it. Then, by watching it weekly, I came to realize how horrendous the pacing really is. :( I don't like Levi either. In fact, apart from Mikasa (dat mary sue), I don't really like anyone.

                  I was browsing MAL forums a while ago and I was surprised by the amount of people that said Steins;Gate was their personal fave of all time and pretty much the best anime overall. I still don't get it. What makes it so great?! ;____;

                    Personally, I believe Madoka relies too heavily on shock twists, and that a lot of people are putting it on a pedestal and claiming it to be the greatest thing since sliced bread. While I respect you for liking it, there comes a point where it's just plain annoying to see magical girl anime as a whole being synonymous with Madoka.

                    Speaking of magical girl anime:
                    Cardcaptor Sakura > Madoka

                    I'd say it's the solid, character-driven storyline, primarily in the second half (if I remember correctly, the first half focused on getting to know the characters).
