Whats your issue with dragonball, naruto, yugioh, pokemon, fairy tail, one piece, bleach etc? Yeah they are overrated and attract kiddies, but they can be a loy of fun if not taken seriously, plus they are gateway animes/mangas to better stuff? i just dont get it.
> Dragon Ball
No issue at all, it's a fun series that never tried to be anything more than that.
It tries to be something greater than your average Shounen and fails at it pretty badly. It's fanfiction-tier at one point.
Literally nobody cares about anything YGO besides the card game. The only people who follow the anime are either kids or manchildren who can't let go.
Same as above, but for the games.
> Fairy Tail
Haven't watched it.
> One Piece
Have no issue with it, it's pretty fun.
It's alright, but its fans are always over-analyzing shit, so they piss me off desu.
Fuck people. I can't stand that it's to embarrassing to ask my crush out bullshit that everyone likes. I'd rather watch Goku, or Luffy smash some fuckers face in.
Also, early one piece is amazing. I still get teary eyed from the enies lobby arc
One Piece is decent but the others are mostly poorly made kids shit really. You kind need the perspective to realise there are so many other better shows out there.
Even with gateway anime, there' great stuff like Bebop or TTGL, depending on your preferences of course.
It's a mess after Namek. Toriyama's ideas are still all very likable, but they're just kind of put together inartfully. GT and Super are trash, of course.
Part 1 was fine enough. Part 2 (Shippuuden) was just tremendously boring. After Pain the series went full retard.
Missed Opportunity: The Anime
Toei Animation can eat my ass. The adaption is not very good at all, and Oda's been slipping since the timeskip.
I have no idea what Kubo thinks he's doing. After Soul Society, it's just random shit happening that no one cares about.
TL;DR: I hate them because they hurt me.
Went downhill after the Piccolo Jr. tournament arc. The Cell and Buu sagas in particular were embarrassingly bad.
Started off promising but tried way too hard to be something it clearly couldn't be.
You're joking, right?
All it has going for it are boobs and butts, everything else sucked.
Really badly paced, way too much focus on laughably bad melodrama
Started off as a decent ripoff of Yu Yu Hakusho, but went downhill fast after the Soul Society arc and is just unwatchable/readable now.
Asspull untill naruto has wrinkles
As shitty as the hair styles
Every season they try a little harder so I give them credit for that
One piece but with fire and shit
Long piece of shit
Ass pulling started after izan battle that was 8 seconds.
Goku's voice in both english and jap
Gave it a try with a few episodes, didn't like any character, nothing seemed to be happening
Apparently Arc V is alright? I'm sure I'd enjoy the series a lot if I was very drunk and watching with some friends, shit is ridiculous.
Ash's voice is unbearable, could not sit through an episode because of it. Watched when I was younger and enjoyed it. Kinda wanna watch now, some of the grills that follow Ash in B/W and X/Y are qts
Never watched, heard it was awful from here, heard it was great from friends.
Was gonna watch+read this at some point. The manga ended recently didn't it? Heard something along the lines of that.
My problem with almost every long running Battle Shounen is that they almost always have a good start and an interesting first few arcs, then eventually devolve into the same generic shit.
Fairy Tail, Reborn, Bleach and Naruto are prime examples of this. All of them had decent starts (Reborn's is debatable, but the Mukuro and Varia arcs were both fairly interesting) but as they keep going they just get worse and worse, the same shit over and over again.
One Piece was different, with a kind of weak start, but then picking up the pace by the end of East Blue. It held strong for an impressive 600 chapters. Since then (the last 5 years?) it's been been struggling.
the parts of one piece where toei actually put solid effort in (like the walk to arlong park) are amazing, but so much of the series is low effort and doesn't live up to the quality of the manga that I can't watch it anymore
