Some grumpy jii-sans are.
His taste wasn't exactly good, but he was still entertaining
5/5s or 4/5s*
Sorry I left that one out.
>Even at the height of his popularity people argued about his taste.
Yeah. That's a common thing people tend to do with popular "anime reviewers"(groups or otherwise) . That said, there's some legitimacy behind that in a few cases.
You're really pleb, all of them are mainstream, with the exception of maybe four shows. You got all your major Ghibli, Shirow, Kon and Shinkai works there.
I myself have seen at least 40 out of these, and I consider myself a pretty casual viewer.
There is literally no proof of this. Why did people eat it right up? I could say I'm Grumpy Jii-san right now and it would make more sense. In fact, I am. I just got finished hiking through the Macross thread, so I'm gonna stop here and talk some anime.
I normally detest anime reviewers, but I'll probably make an exception for this guy even if I kinda disagree with his choices. He seems kinda interesting. Sad to see he's dead though.
Arcadia of my youth shouldn't be that high. It's good, but only as suplimentary material to the series.
I tried watching some of it before the series because it's suppose to be an origin story, & they expected you to know all these planets, factions, people etc, that you meet in the series.
Really, REALLY confused me.
