    • Clarifying How To Use the Report Feature   06/29/20

      Hello. I have noticed a great deal of confusion regarding how to use the report feature and what is expected regarding reports, so I am making a clarification announcement to users who may be unfamiliar with how the report feature works. Please note we have this rule regarding reports: 16.  Do report. Do not make frivolous reports (such as "I don't like this person"). Frivolous reports will result in a warning and possible ban. a. When reporting, please give a reason. Reports citing what rule the post is breaking and giving some information are way more valuable and will get the issue resolved faster. (Reports with no explanations sometimes require mods to go through and skim the entire thread to find out what's going on. Please save us time if you can). b. Don’t waste the mods’ time. Report people for breaking the rules, otherwise don’t report. [Rules in their entirety can be found here.] We also have a wonderful tutorial on how to use the report feature created by one of our former moderators which you can find here. In essence, we enforce the rules as they are written. In a rare occasion there may not be a direct violation but the user is still conducting themselves inappropriately and how we handle that is up to the moderators discretion. We do our best. We also encourage you to use the report feature to report posts that have been edited down to nothing or if you double posted and would like your double post hidden. Also, please note that we do not provide updates on reports. We get far too many to be able to keep up with every one. You are welcome to message a moderator to ask about your report, but please know that we cannot and will not divulge any information on whether we banned the user you are reporting. Simply that we have taken appropriate action. I hope this helps provide further clarification on how to use the report feature. Should you have any questions not clear in these instructions, please feel free to message me or Nyx. Thank you. *Please allow up to 3 business days (as we tend to be slower on weekends) for a response and for reports to be cleared.

  • I've been really enjoying Yesterday wo Utatte, but I can't stand Shinako. Idk why, but she's such a dislikeable and disingenuous person, she's just afraid to be honest to herself and to others yet everyone seems to be in love with her, I don't get it, ugh.
  • Pet was pretty good, but I can see why most people dropped it in the beginning.
  • I kinda miss Tokyo Ghoul a lot.
  • 2019's Boogiepop anime >>>>> the original adaptation
  • I'm not really getting the hype around Tower of God. Seems okay, but I'm under the impression I'll drop it when quarentine's over and I have less free time to watch stuff.
 

alot of people read the manwa and i still don't see the hype behind it either. tried to watch it but quit after 3 min

mood. And the fact that when women in japan decided to complain publicly about it they got backlash not only from Japanese male love lives fans doing everything to justify it but also western male love live fans which goes to show location doesn’t necessarily mean anything. Both sides are gross and constantly downplay things involving the sexualization of young girls

(Dont know if this is unpopular at all since my friends dont watch Detective Conan, RIP their bad taste):

I feel like Shinichi and Shiho would be a better end game than Shinichi and Ran, I mean Ran is cute and all but it just feel so boring with both of them together imo, like...just because they were childhood friends? Lol kay...

unfortunately it did, I remember seeing just by accident and reading both the article and the comments. The amount of justification was insane, especially since they decided to argue with female fans with the same concerns

Aime/Game tropes I don't like:
 

- We are a highschool drama, but oh look! it's the last episode, time to go to space, end off the whole planet and also have those 16 years old lovers be the center of the universe!

- destiny/fate and fighting the personification of it

- "I've relived this timeline over and over again, trying to change what happened"

- timetravel

- trying to make things better only ever makes them worse! Oh no! (Why is that anyways? And this basically sends the message that you shouldn't even try, feels like people just want to be deep and cause suffering, meh)

- "See this female character? Let's talk about what being female means in a romantizating manner! Being a women means being vulnerable, to dream, to create life!-"

- Also "I am a man so I-!" talk

- why the 14 years olds?

- "This girl is so disfigured, she is drawn like anyone else... but with a tiny line meant to be a scar on her face!!!! But don't worry, you are still beautiful :)  Don't be superficial!1!!1!!!"

- generally straying from a before well established setting and go into wannabe abstract stuff just to suddenly "have a message!" (which in 99% of cases isn't even well thought out) and just throw all the before established characters and mood under a train

Its ok to not watch an anime because you find the art style ugly. 

 

I did that once with Red Garden but ended up watching it because the plot was so damn interesting. 

 

  1. Obscure animes are more entertaining than mainstream ones
  2. X/1999 was *chef kiss* the best series ever
  3. Adapting anime from VN will never be properly done, they just need to quit it and let it go. This also goes for America making Live Action movies from anime because again..they always fail time and time again.
  4. I have a soft spot of all the precure series and the Netflix adaption should burn in hell 
  5. Please please PLEASE make more anime adult focus, how many times are we going to get "schoolboy is not like the others and his life turns upside down and now he has 8 overly sexualized females that like his underperforming personality."  
  6. Anime now are getting lazy and mostly unoriginal

 

- Black Blood Brothers is way underrated

 

Really mad that they only had 12 episodes !!!! I freaking love that anime so much

  • The show/movie/or manga are you taking about because the movie for X/1999 is pretty good
  • Key Studio does do a good job with adapating their Visual Novels into anime its just that Air, Clannad and Kanon was handed by other studios. 
  • I don't see why more studios don't do it. from what im hearing Yesterday no uta is pretty good but i guess being a High Schooler sells and get people interested. If its not that then its another Isekei anime 
  • They need to stop making anime in certain genres.  Moe, Isekei  and Idol anime can have a fucking seat for a while (espically Idol anime) we need more Meches, Cyberpunk, and any other neglected genre to get a look at. If not that why not make something original like Watanabe did with Carol and Tuesday

I want more yankee animes to be made. There are so many good mangas about them but very few animes about them. I especially want Tokyo Revengers to get an anime instead of a live action. 
 

I’m somewhat happy that the new BL animes coming out have decent plots and discuss feelings, that being said there are still strange BLs slipping through the cracks like that BL isekai that’s coming out in July. 
 

there also needs to be more Josei anime. Shoujo is nice but seeing adult female characters is a nice change of pace.

  • There needs to more josei anime or more mature shoujo anime around. I don’t hate battle shounen or shounen slice of life by any means, but if anime is to remain a good animation medium beyond art style, it needs to be challenged and tested with new creative output. Also, I’m tired of almost everything in anime supposed to be defaulted to a straight teen boy’s perspective.
  • I want more BL and GL that isn’t fetish-ey. I love BL, but I’m tired of having to deal with delusional fujoshi just to enjoy content. Also, I just wanna watch girls in love, but it always turns into some weird porn. Just please, I’m tired of seeing lgbt+ people as a sexy commodity rather than people. It’s been getting better over the years though. 
  • I want more horror and thriller anime!
  • I don’t understand how people have sexualized Osumatsu-san. How is that even hot? How? Sorry what am I missing?
  • Please...give isekai a break...not Inuyasha though it can stay. 
    • I abhor Sessrin.
  • I hate unnecessary ecchi everywhere. It appears even in shows that aren’t supposedly erotic. Like, middle school girl running to school? Here’s some shimpan. Was that necessary? There are animes out there with serious plots, but then there’s a kid being sexualized for creeps. Idc how great that anime is, if it’s only popular because they got some cameltoes, then that’s cheap. 
    • By no means I hate all adult material aimed towards men, but it’s annoying and downright disgusting if school-aged girls get hypersexualized in 75% of anime every airing season to the point that they don’t list ecchi in the tags or bump the ratings higher anymore. 
    • I watched interviews and commentaries about Japanese fashion, and there’s always one thing. Japanese women are tired of being hypersexualized. Japanese female fashion always has a continuous trend of boxy silhouettes and oversized clothes that are still very feminine. When I watched commentaries about it, “it’s supposed to represent a woman dressing for herself, not for a man” or “trying to separate themselves from what popular Japanese media portrays them as.” I am no cultural expert, but since anime and manga are such huge pop culture statements, I highly doubt it didn’t play a role in this. 
      • Wait, if there’s such a huge cultural response to Japanese hypersexualization, I don’t think it’s unpopular. Whatever. I’m saying it anyways.

Yesterday wo Utatte spoilers, beware.

A lot of people told me that I'd start sympathizing with Shinako as the story went on and bruh, we're almost halfway through and I hate her even more than when the show started. She's an overall shitty person who is using others as emotional crutches, and she's always leading both Rikuo and Rou just enough so that they stay around her, but never actually gives them anything in return. She hides her selfishness behind the facade of a nice, caring girl who is mourning the loss of a childhood friend/lover, but she's just disingenuous and self-serving.

Haru's the real MVP of the show and it saddens me how she is the one who actually likes and supports Rikuo but keeps being scorned. At this point I'm not even sure if I want her to end up with Rikuo anymore, I just want her to be happy and loved...

I hate the whole "meeting the love of your life in highschool" trope.

Let's be real, the majority  of high school relationships depicted in anime would not last. The characters are selfish and get jealous over the simplest things. Most of those relationships lack trust. And they rarely bring up college or the future.

The female lead is oftentimes stupid and heavily dependent on the male lead. Anime in that way is sexist. The girl can't even do a simple math problem, has no future goals, and only focuses on getting the lead to her. In her imagination, they stay together forever, he gets a job doing something, and she more or less becomes a house wife.
