Doesn't it rip off a bunch of older movies/tv shows?
2020-02-27 21:04
Sure, but that doesn't make it bad. Tarantino and Scorsese directed tons of scenes that are as close to a copy to their respective influences yet they're highly regarded directors. I don't really like or watch anime, but I loved CB because it wore its western influence on its sleeve.

Not exactly unpopular, but mine is. A huge ammount of modern anime has artstyle which uses oversaturated colors and it just ends up looking lifeless. Even if it looks nice.
2020-02-27 12:42
the ufotable special. It just looks "good" but the animation is trash (and the animes too)

Yeap, i cannot deny that the stills are great, but the aesthetic and artstyle are inferior to anime from decades past
2020-02-27 13:55
The reason is mostly that cells had to be painted by hand, and color editing even on movies only happened in the early 2000's, so you couldn't make the colors be like it is now with digital painting, so it lacks the "pop" colors. Even movies suffer from it. That doesn't change the fact that the animation is not good and just look good on stills (JoJo is a good example, stiff af anime bcuz the character designs). Shame the standard for anime is low today that everything gets a pass, not only on animation but on story too. Myanimelist is a joke to try to find something to watch (at least for me)

Oh yeah MAL is dumb af mainly bc of what i mentioned in #21
2020-02-27 14:06
yeah, i agree completely. Fucking no way FMAB is a 9 anything visual media, i wouldn't give my favorite movies (that are considered masterpieces by critics) a fucking 9. People have insanely low standards, and that goes for youtubers too (tried watching dr. stone lately, what a shit show). there is some editing/directing mistakes and straight up pacing issues with anime this days, i'm mostly reading manga recently which have better art and those issues are not there (mostly). eva gets my n1 on that, at least when hideaki anno knows what the fuck he is doing. (for tv anime at least)

FMAB is an 8 at best. For me it is a 7. The shitty cgi and some pacing is a big reason why. MAL weebs just cannot form a critical opinion on what they enjoy. Like for example i think that Evangelion is a great anime, but it cant be a 10 for me simply because the span of episodes from 1-16ish just drags on forever and is not enjoyable. Yeah i agree manga often works better. Ever seen the Junji Ito collection anime? What a downgrade in EVERYTHING from the short story mangas that is based around.
2020-02-27 14:23
I think fma is a 7 at best, the writing is extremely contrived, there is multiple occasions where she just needs ed/al at some place to move the plot, and something happens just bcuz (the first greed encounter, ed father not telling him whats is going with the country when he meets him at the house, ed being his son is a contrivance on itself). The first 20 episodes or so are basically ed and al walking around doing nothing. Most the reason on why i'm preferring watching TV original anime and not adaptations is because it's 25 episodes and it's over, adaptations take 25 to get started. Plus, that has damned a lot of bones adaptations on trying to be FMAB and failing hard, there is like 3 at least from the ones i watched I think the best episodes from eva are from 1-12 and then 14/15 to 25+movie, it's when hideaki knows what the fuck he is doing, and for me it's some of the best anime out there, but the rest is filler. 8/10 I should read the junji ito mangas, thanks for remembering me (i've been afk on reading/watching lately) And yeah, i saw it was trash.

Yeah i agree with that. The last episodes and the movie are the best thing EVA ever. Like even if the show is an 8 for me the movie is 9 maybe a 10. No filler, no stalling its great. To the point. And this is why if i look at my MAL ratings (Which are not the greatest, and i used to suffer from the "Weebs cannot think critically" thing so its a mishmash of stuff) the top 20 or so nearly all of it are movies. Do it! Uzumaki is one of the best mangas ive read. Black Paradox is good too!
2020-02-27 14:55
Yeah, for me its the same, but i like the early portions of EVA, well paced and directed and well written. But he just goes mad man mode after epi 15, everything is there on overload. Shit is awesome, shame the middle is so bad. I don't have a MAL account, but Miyazaki movies for me are the best animations out there, porco rosso is so good, that shit was insane. Just checked MAL top 20 and... yeah, those people need to go watch some movies (not only animation). I often criticize when people say "Anime needs to cater for the west audience more and stop doing those slice of life shit" and then you would just replace it with terrible shonen. I will, i was reading mushishi (the anime is great, but watch 2/3 episodes a day at most), but i can put it on hold. Uzumaki is short

myanimelist.net/animelist/randomgayname?.. Theese are mine shitty ratings. And yes Miyazaki movies are great. Like Studio Ghibli is arguably the best studio to make anime ever. Only thing ive seen from them and didnt like was Grave of The Fireflies. God i hate the main character. And hell no it does not need to cater to western audience. I read about 15 chapters of MushiShi it was really good. I should finish it already
2020-02-27 15:11
The anime is great too, well animated and directed, is up there for me. For me they are the best at animation in general, not only anime. I didn't like Grave of the fireflies either, is just the feels for a lot of people, the main character is a retard and i was tilted with his decisions for 90% of the movie, when his sister dies i was "deserved". I still need to watch some from your list (i'm ashamed to not have watched perfect blue yet), There is some i've never even heard. Luckily there is a lot of movies (i'm a movie dude), i will save it. FLCL is awesome, one of the best by animation alone.

Yah i heard a lot of praise for Mushishi however i feel more comfortable with manga and i honestly feel like its easier and faster to just read manga tbh. God the main characters decisions are so fuckign horrible. His aunt was a bitch, but his shitty decisions caused his and his sisters death just because of some petty shit. Perfect Blue is amazing
2020-02-27 15:23
Both are good though, you are fine with either, but there is the special that i recommend on watching(its a movie). I kind of forgot the rest of the movie because i was so tilted, but its one of the worst movies i've watched (the animation is still good). I will watch perfect blue, i need to stop watching "esports", but like you, i'm more comfortable reading manga, i can listen to music, lay on the bed and read for hours (i don't have a TV). Have a nice day, thanks for the list.

imagine thinking just because a show is targeted to a young audience it has to be badly written, wannabe elitist smh.
2020-02-27 21:10
The majority of shonen are terribly written, and that is close to being a fact. There is a bunch of young audience shows, movies, and manga that are masterfully created, the majority of shonens are not. And being made for "kids" doesn't excuse it from criticism.

Well that's not what you wrote, i can name at least 3 shonen off the top of my head that are masterfully written regardless if you're interestend in the story or not, and im sure i'd find other if i watch/read more of them, and i think being able to write such long narratives with consistently good writing its way more impressive than a dramaticaly shorter well written series just because it's aimed at adults.
2020-02-27 21:25
"Well that's not what you wrote, " i think being a discussion about anime makes it clear what shonen i'm talking about (the narutos/one pieces of the world). "i can name at least 3 shonen off the top of my head that are masterfully written regardless if you're interestend in the story or not," please name them, but that wont change that the MAJORITY are not. And the job of the story is to be interesting doesn't matter who is watching/reading it. I do watch/read anything if its good, not only dramas or adult stuff, i like the craft, not a genre. I do agree that its impressive, but doesn't make them better just because of it, it normally makes it worse because the writer runs out of ideas, or characters show regression, etc.. That is not only a problem with anime/manga, that happens with TV shows/books for "adults" too. But the argument is stupid and doesn't change the quality of anything, if the characters/plot/writting are bad in the start (the majority of shonens) it will still be bad at 300 chapters in, or even worse. And shonen has some of the worst writing practices on how to establish those things The argument can be flipped too; movies are more impressive than long running series because they need to make you interested in a character, plot, and message in a span of 2h max, while long running series can do it with 10x the amount of hours. There is quote that is something like "if you are in a hurry write a book, if you have time write a movie" " dramaticaly shorter well written series just because it's aimed at adults." That was never my point, like i said, there is a bunch of stories that are aimed for kids that are masterfully created and i like them more than some "adult" aimed ones even, the length of it changes nothing But i'm elitist, i will take my ghibli movies and leave (that the majority are made for kids btw)

I can name them sure even tho i dont think i should since everyone knows which ones they are, HxH, Full Metal Alchemist and Death Note, and even tho i don't think One piece it's not without it flaws to this day it amazes me how incredibly gradual and consistent it's world building is in it's 20+ years of it's run. Saying that if a story is not interesting to you it is immidiately bad and uninteresting to everyone it's such a bold and naive opinion holy shit, i've seen a lot of people hate on evangelion or berserk even tho they are arguably two of the greatest series to come out of anime/manga, If a series is well written but it touches themes that you're not particulary interested in you'll obviously not enjoy it as much as people that indeed are interested in it and that makes complete sense. I never said they were better, just it's just a different style of writting that i find more impressive to master or come close to mastering it... and not everyone of them runs out of ideas, one piece still works with what it had since the beginning and HxH just opened like a million sub plots that can be expanded upon (even tho we'll probably never see it). just because a lot of shonens suffer from this is it really unfair and presumptuous to lump them all in the same box as you did.

Woudlnt say that 95%, but a shit ton of weebs dont understand the difference between a show being enjoyable and it being a masterpiece. Just looking at the average users MAL account you can see how they do that. Like somoene having an average of 7,5/10 out of 1000 ratings is far too high.

Why?
2020-02-27 15:03
-----SPOILER-----ALERT----- In the middle of the series, it looked as if the author had come out of ideas. Everything seemed way too forced. The story about some Company that used The DeathNote to bring benefits is the most idiotic thing I've ever seen. The two guys who replaced "L" are just absurd and stupid. Just cmon... The white-haired KID can snap his fingers, and SWAT appear at any end of the world. Really? And many-many other illogical and stupid shit. It was really interesting until episode maybe #3 or #4. The 90% of the rest seemed like a filler to the final. OK, the final is not bad. It's really nice. But 33 episodes of filler is not what makes a series good.
2020-02-27 18:41
Death note was good until L died imo.
2020-02-27 18:48
Hmm... yeah, I think so. If the last episode was just after L's death, it would be 9/10. But now it's 5-6 at max.

Popular stuff always gets hate, because than people start caring about your opinion and you can express your hate. Whilst no one makes the effort to hate on shows that aren't popular in the first place because no one will care
2020-02-28 13:46
some of the hate is ofc genuine but especially when a show becomes mainstream popular a lot of people start hating on it without any reasons just to be the contrarian (see alot of this on twitter/reddit mostly)

why do you think that? his drastic change as a person makes sense if you consider that he literaly saw his own future when he touched historias hand in chapter 90
2020-02-27 23:12
he didnt see his own future,he saw a part of what happend when grisha took the founding titan not to mention that grisha for all his hatred for marley couldnt bring himself to actually fight frieda,it was eren who pushed him into doing it
2020-02-27 23:15

yes he saw his own future trough grishas memories the attack titan can look into the memories of future attack titans aswell chapter 121-122 pretty much confirmed that
2020-02-27 23:18
its not confirmed that he saw his own future we only know that grisha saw what happens if erens plan succeeds and is against it
2020-02-27 23:18

if grisha knows the outcome of erens plan then he obviously knows it aswell and there were multiple moments where it was atleast suggested that eren tried to change his inescapable future (mikasa confession, the scarf stuff etc)
2020-02-27 23:21
i honestly dont know what the end of aot is going to be, everything is possible lol i do think the whole him hating mikasa stuff is faked by him though
2020-02-27 23:22
#108
 | 
Germany AYEONV 
iam sure he faked it aswell my theory for the ending is close to devilman. most people think its going to be similar to code geass tho but i think erens genocide plan will succeed but in the progress he kills most of the people of the newly formed group and ends up getting killed by mikasa/armin which would explain the mikasa stuff and her scarf randomly returning to her
2020-02-27 23:25
didnt she get the scarf back from her fangirl? do you think the curse of ymir and titans in general will end?
2020-02-27 23:27
#114
 | 
Germany AYEONV 
iam not sure about the titan stuff ngl but what i meant with scarf was that eren obviously tried to push mikasa away from him bc he knew of a certain event that will come soon this is why his attitude changed towards her and his friends after his failed confession bc he realized there that he cant change his future i mean she tossed away the scarf with symbolizes their connection which would mean that erens plan succeded but now she got it back and is comming for him which he obviously tried to avoid. so i think that either he kills her or she kills him
2020-02-27 23:31
she got it back but she still didnt wear it in the last page of chapter 126 so idk im really hyped to see whats going to happen

Not gonna lie, you had me on the first half lol.

Well in that case 99% of anime fans are fake anime fans Since a very little proportion of us pays for animes
2020-02-27 23:18
Exactly. You're not fans. People who pay are fans. It makes my experience far superior knowing I contributed. How does it feel knowing you stole the result of thousands of man hours? I really hope they start enforcing piracy laws better.

That is not a unpopular opinion, I haven't seen one single person who said it and actually watched the show

well it's still an opinion, and i enjoyed the show thoroughly, despite the anthropomorphic character some associate with furries.

You guys should take a long, hard look at Japan's youth and consider whether all that animu crap is gonna do you any good.

who cares about the japanese youth?
2020-02-28 23:15
Probably the people in Japan that aren't societal retards. I doubt they want their economy and culture to collapse within the next 50 years. But whatever floats your boat, eh?
