The way I see it, there’s two kinds of anime fans in the world: fans who like FLCL and think it's a good coming of age story portrayed in a strange but interesting manner, and fans who think it's mindnumbing, lolsorandumXD bullshit.
So which are you?
I thought FLCL was kind of depressing.
Which is odd, because i don't think it was supposed to come off that way.
It felt like a good and well-executed show, but I didn't understand shit. I haven't rewatched it, though.
I'm the third kind of anime fan.
The kind that never watched it.
Even though I went in knowing what it was supposed to be, I still didn't get anything.
I liked the experimental nature of the animation and the soundtrack. Didn't care much for the story.
Mosts shows are depressing
I fucking love FLCL
It was undoubtedly bitter sweet.
Its like the length of a long movie.
Never understood, why so many don't get FLCL. Sure, you can't explain anything, but overall it's very simple. This is far from being Lain.
The kind that hasn't seen it
I'm the fan that dropped it and never looked back. The test of time has shown my decision to be the right one
I liked the soundtrack and enjoyed the show, but didn't really care much about the deep and meaningful plot. Is that another kind?
I don't think I had that reaction when I watched it. But other coming of age stories have in the past caused a certain reflection on my part, usually a negative kind.. wasted potential, etc. That was a long time ago though.
Watched it, was more interested in the setting and the story than the awkward teenage interpersonal flopping-around that almost the whole cast of characters, including the adult characters, spent all their energy at.
Former friend of mine left it in my possession when he tried to grow up from his juvenile tastes (ie TV in general, anime in particular). Didn't work out for him, as I caught him on Crunchyroll later, but he never got his DVDs back.
But it actually was a good coming of age story presented in an interesting manner. I don't really see why this of all things should be attacked for lelrandumbness given that such a trait was not particularly excessive. Not all forms of incongruence appeal to the "lolsorandum crowd" to begin with, which is why Katte ni Kaizou and Johny Test differ wildly in terms of fanbase.
I belong to those who dont watch anime anymore so they can browse /a/.
I think it's a coming of age story portrayed in a strange manner. I wouldn't call it good or interesting though.
What if I still haven't watched it?
Read the manga but I don't remember much about it
Is Johnny Test like a reboot of Johnny Quest? Is it good?
>there are people in this world that didn't like Animaniacs
It's so deep I can't see the bottom.
I didn't even like FLCL.
No and no.
No, it's terrible and not a reboot. Just a shitty Canadian cartoon about an LOLSORANDUM kid and his talking dog being retarded.
The way I see it, there's two kinds of anime fans in the world; fans that think anime is fun and entertaining but know japan is shit, and those that curse their non-japanese heritage and think everything that is japanese is the best thing ever.
I didn't know it was a coming of age story, I actually thought of it as a disconnected story, considering the lack of continuity in episodes.
Of course, I never finished because I had to wipe my drive before I could watch the last episode.
These are the two categories that people say you can fall under, but I really liked Japan when I visited. Something about their incredibly stifling society seems to breed really interesting individuals in the rare occasions when they do appear.
