So I got though 7 eps of Attack on Titan....why do people like this show so much. I am not trying to be a dick I really don't get it. The Titans look boring, the chars are flat, and Mikasa is an awful Mary sue. Please someone let me know.
Not everyone likes every anime.
If you don't like it, don't watch it. There is no need for a thread to spark debate.
>I am not trying to be a dick
Having an opinion doesn't make you a dick, moron. Assuming /a/ is a hivemind is pretty stupid though.
Well I feel I need to emphases the point that I am not trying to troll, cus when it comes to huge fan bases like this most people don't like you talking about their fave anime.
Who gives a shit whether SnK has a huge fanbase here or not? The latest popular shonen attracts a lot of viewers, wow big fucking surprise. Are you going to make the same shit threads about SAO too?
this looks like trolling to me. you should feel ashamed.
It's ok man. I couldn't get into it as much as everyone else did. Shit dragged on way too long.
I'll probably pick it back up when the dub comes out.
Best action animes of all time and AOTY as voted by the true men on /a/. Not the girly pedo pervert bronies who like gay shows about girls.
I can see why people like SnK, but personally don't care for it.
I'll never understand why SAO gets so much love.
Snk, SAO, I have no idea what you guys are talking about
SAO is mostly popular because of it basically being blatant, fanfic-esque wish-fulfillment. It doesn't get a lot of love on /a/ because the Deviantart/Gaia-tier crowd that clings to it is largely either scared of 4chan or put off by /a/'s sink-or-swim attitude, but if you've ever been to a con or looked on some normalfag (by anime-fan-standards) site like MyFigureCollection, you'd see that it's ridiculously popular.
>stop liking what i don't!
I know it's popular, just didn't really see why.
Of course I guess the same was probably said of Naruto way back.
>So I got though 7 eps of Attack on Titan....why do people like this show so much.
Either you have learned nothing from real life or you are trolling. As with real life, different people like different things. Not everyone likes a certain TV show you like. Not everyone likes the same movie you do. Not everyone does as well at college as you do.
As for enjoying anime, I try to enjoy all anime I watch by not looking for the faults, but for likeable parts. If there isn't enough to like, then I don't watch it because it obviously lacks entertainment value for me. You see, my goal is to be entertained. It is not my goal to try to view everything as shit. If you go deliberately trying to turn everything into shit, then of course, you are bound to be irritable at how so few things seem to be going your way in life.
Well yes of course everyone has their own tastes its a given, thats why I don't really bring it up. Normally if this was just something I ran across and didn't like I wouldn't think anything of it, but Attack on Titan tops best of charts and everyone I know has been telling me to watch it. So yes for the sake of understand I just want to know what people like about a show to understand how it can be such a big hit. I never went into the show wanting to hate it just cus its super popular btw.
>I'll never understand why SAO gets so much love.
SAO was made to deliberately appeal to wish fulfillment types of consumers. It not only has one Mary Sue, but also a Gary Stu. That is a double-dose of wish fulfilment and that extra strong dosage makes for rabid fans.
WIT uses cheap drama and ruined a lot of things, but it's prettier than the manga.
You do know that you don't have to like it, right OP? Hopefully Season 2 won't be as bad and everyone will keep to a thread or two so you can just avoid those.
You are a faggot please kill yourself
Okay then it was nice talking to all of you. You won't be hearing from me again.
AOT is bad, yes.
Who is your favorite character so far?
The Titan that punches titans in the face, and he is the only char I like.
Oh boy. You sure are retarded,
I love the SnK.
I think the Titans are quite original, and I disagree about the characters being flat.
I do agree about Mikasa being an awful Mary Sue tho.
