Unpopular Anime Opinions?

Starting this thread cause I'm bored lmao

I don't have many unpopular opinions but here we go :O

Mine is that I don't think the music in Jojo's Bizarre Adventure is that good. Don't get me wrong, the intros are amazing, but I feel like character themes and other assorted songs aren't that great. Maybe my ears are just weird lol.

I never saw FMA03 but my friend whose obsessed with FMA in general says that it's not as bad as people say. I guess the reason why people didn't like it was cause it wasn't loyal to the manga, or something? Idk lmao.
yeah pretty much, the community automatically sees not following the manga as disrespectful and bad despite Hiromu Arakawa actually liking this adaption and iirc working on it herself as well:p

I don't think Sailor Moon Crystal is as bad as the SM fandom makes it out to be. Yeah, the first internet season is rough, but the TV season that adapted the Infinity arc (the S season in the 90s anime) was pretty good. (I haven't seen the Eternal movies yet, so I can't compare them to the Dream arc and SuperS).

I find the Black Moon arc/the R season to be overrated as hell in terms of storyline and villains. (Also, Prince Demande is a creep of the highest order, and I don't understand why the fandom tries to make him look sympathetic).

The Starlights get too much hate from some corners of the fandom, especially Seiya. I mean, I understand some of the hate in regards to 90s anime Seiya, but not so much manga Seiya. Plus, some transphobic corners of the fandom still exist, sadly, and bash the Starlights for being girls who magically disguise themselves as guys in the 90s anime.

Mamoru gets too much hate for being "useless", when in reality, at least one of the 90s anime writers didn't like him, so they tried pushing him into the background. (To further illustrate this problem, the manga actually gives him an important power upgrade while SuperS... well, doesn't.)

I'll make one to go along with that Sailor Moon one. The Original dub back in the 90s in good in the sense that it's so bad it's good. Even some of the little things such as Molly(I forget her original Japanese name) having a Brooklyn accent gave the 90s dub some charm.
I enjoy watching the old dub when I need a good laugh. Even though it's butchered as hell compared to the OG Japanese, I still enjoy the Saturday morning cartoon vibe the old dub gave off.

the brs anime wasnt that bad. yes it was confusing but the fight scenes were cool as hell, the character designs were sick and the plot was convoluted and pretentious which is my kind of thing. i think it could have benefitted from being a little longer than 8 episodes so it could explain things better but...it was a fun little watch.


also im not sure if this is "unpopular" but man i just dont want fanservice you guys. its not that i hate lewdness and adult content, because i dont. but if i want to see naked people doing sexy things i can go watch that in a different genre. i dont want to be minding my business watching a cool show and then all of a sudden theres just a really uncomfortable fanservice scene shoved in.

Couldn't have said it better myself. Part of the fun is seeing just what they changed, how badly (or how surprisingly good) they did it or just some of the weird dialogue choices and so on.

Not super into anime, but I do have some hot takes:
- Sub can be just as bad as any dub, and dubs can be better than sub (I've heard grating voices in both, and often times I find the dubs to be funnier and more lively?)
- My Hero Academia is not overrated. (I say this as someone who used to think it was overrated and overhyped until I gave it a second chance and fell in love with the excellent story and characters; I'll spare everyone my long essay, though. XD)
- Attack on Titan isn't overrated either, and Eren Jaeger isn't a "bad" (as in poorly written) character. I think it's an anime with a very well thought-out plot; I haven't watched much as it's too dark for me, but I know people who are into it and talk to me about the plot. I also think Mikasa is a very good character as well; she's not overrated. (Tbh, I think I know why some people want to hate on her and call her overrated or bad, but I'm not trying to get controversial here.)
