Why all the love?

The anime industry puts out more than enough content to please every type of anime fan out there. If you're in the mood for something with big action and explosions, you can find that very easily. If you want something more geared towards romance, that's readily available as well. There's a ton of content to sift through, but it's not hard to find something that tickles your fancy.

Obviously, there's certain content that floats to the top. The cream of the crop, so to speak. For whatever reason, there are a handful of shows that people really latch onto and drive the program's popularity through the roof. These shows go beyond the traditional anime fan love and turn into ambassadors for anime in and of itself. This is the best that anime has to offer.

Too bad you don't feel that way! For every millionth person that loves a highly reviewed/respected anime, there's one out there that just doesn't understand why that series gets all the attention. That person has watched the show from start to finish, and all they were left with was a bad taste in their mouth.

Are you one of those people? Do you have an anime show that you see as mostly loved among fans, but you just can't get into it? What anime show has gained tons of respect over the years, but makes you cringe everytime you think about it? Leave a comment and let us know!


  1. Code Geass was really stupid. I've seen porn with better plot development.

  2. FLCL gets a lot of hype as the best anime ever, but it's average imo.

  3. I don't like Dragonball Z. Sure, it is occasionally fun, but it drags on so much. By the end of the series, the power level thing just becomes too ridiculous.
