As you’ve noticed, I haven’t done a lot of tag post in a while. I’m sorry I don’t everyone. I either completely forget about them, I’m way too busy working on some other posts to do them, or I just get tagged so many times that I just can’t keep up with them. So luckily, this is a week where I am a little ahead of my usual schedule and can do one. This one. Well, this is going to be fun. Be prepared for some bad opinions just like the rest of my opinions on here. You have all been warned.
Before I get started, I just wanted to say think you to Mari and Ospreyshire for tagging me. They both run some fantastic blogs with interesting content. Mari does a great job with all sorts of interesting anime content and Ospreyshire runs Iridum Eye that covers content from all over the globe and Ospreyshire’s realm where he puts all his opinions and some of his creative works. He’s a busy guy doing a lot of things.
Ok, now time for some unpopular opinions. Oh joy. I’m sorry everyone.
Popular Series I Don’t Like:
Oh boy, this is going to be fun. There is a lot of series that a lot of fans enjoy that I just don’t click with? I don’t think any anime that I am about to say are terrible, but they just bounce off of me in terms of what they are going for. Those shows are things like Kaguya-sama: Love is War which I just didn’t get except for Chika, Bungou Stray Dogs Season 1, Sword Art Online, K-ON where I started skipping through episodes because of how bored I was of all of it, Re: Zero, and I can keep going on with some other shows but I think that’s enough.
Let me remind you in saying that I don’t think my opinions are good or are the end all or be all. Not every show is for everyone. I’m just going to run now.
An Anime Everyone Hates That I Love
I’ve thought about this for a little bit and had to go through my anilist and I suppose that I have to go through my anilist for some controversial ones. I think that I am one of a few people that I know who liked the original FMA depending on who you talk to. I don’t think it’s perfect at all, but it had a lot of ideas in the second half that had an on and off execution. I like that it tried to do unique things with a source material that wasn’t theirs. I’m a weirdo though.
A Love Triangle Where They Didn’t End Up Who I Wanted
I guess I don’t really care too much about love triangles these days. I could say Kana in Waiting in the Summer, but I’m going to go with the galaxy brained thing and say all love triangles should turn into OT3’s now so we don’t have to deal with the drama.
OH WAIT. Nana and Nana should have ended up with each other in Nana because that would have solved so many problems in the series. Then again that’s not the point of the show, isn’t it?
A Popular Genre You Hardly Watch
Oh, there is a lot of shows where I have barely digged into any shows. Sports anime, Idol anime because anything with Shoji Kawamori and Symphogear, Slice of Life, and such. It really depends on how the shows are handled. I am trying Love Live! Sunshine!! now, but if it doesn’t go the way that I like it then I might just drop it.
A Beloved Character I Don’t Like
There is quite a few characters from the shows that I listed before, but to add fuel to the fire a little more, Bam from Tower of God is boring as sin and I do not get why people like him at all. To push this further, I have not been liking Deku from My Hero Academia for a while now because he literally steals heroic arcs from other characters like him because the mangaka wants him to win more then the others. At least that is from season 4 and another reason why I don’t like that season as much as the others besides how horribly paced it is.
Did I mention that my opinions are awful and shouldn’t define other people’s opinions recently?
A Popular Anime I Can’t Get Into/Not Interested in Watching
Konosuba, Rascal Doesn’t Dream of a Bunny Girl Senpai, the Monogatari series, anything cynical that thinks dumping on things or concepts is somehow smart, things with humor which involves digging too deeply into mean spirited humor and insulting people beyond just playful gestures, romance anime that only focuses on romance instead of actual building characters and chemistry, and so many other things. In general, I will try out almost every anime out there with the threat that I will drop it if I don’t like it. I’ve tried out a lot of the list I presented here and I hated all of them so fast I had to drop them to keep my sanity intact.
Once again, have I mentioned how bad my taste is recently?
A Popular Anime That You Prefer Over The Manga?
I don’t really read a lot of manga, so I can’t get a major or the best answer here. I don’t think that the OG Dragon Ball is as popular here as Z, but after reading through the manga I don’t think I like it as much as the anime? The anime added so much more to the material that just elevates by giving characters much more time to think and breathe in such interesting ways but doesn’t slow the show in anyway. This is a post that will come out in a few weeks though.
I’m not going to tag anyone specifically. If you want to do this, go ahead? I hope I haven’t upset too much of you. I’m sorry about my bad opinions.
