All this talk of bad, popular anime and no one mentions the most recent offender, One Punch Man? SAO was better than OPM, because for all its faults, at least SAO didn't put me to sleep.

On the Corpse Party Back to School 3ds Vs. Yomawari Night Alone Ps Vita decision 2016..
You can check by zip code on Gamestop.com for availability of a game and I did that for both games.. Corpse Party 3ds has 86 copies within
100 miles and every zip code around has just as many copies available.. Yomawari Night Alone Ps Vita has Zip-Zero none available in any zip code that I checked. But it's funny as Yomawari will most likely see a price drop before Corpse Party

I kind of am not crazy about One Punch Man myself. Story is kind of nonsense though the animation is top notch. It is alright, but I don't consider it great myself.

Slightly unrelated, this terrible theme made me think of this thread, always judging. isn't bad for Halloween, but slightly outside of thread scope. And who the hell buys these kinds of themes? Finally, I'm pretty sure this one is what we'd get if Dragon Quest was still named Dragon Warrior over here and it was still the 80s/90s with their "remastered" box art for the west.

That FF XV Beanie hat + Season Pass bundle looks good, but I wish they had one that had the deluxe edition in it. I'd like that Steelbook + movie pack in the Deluxe edition has. 

 

Guess I have to bite the bullet, because getting the season pass + beanie for $8 more than the Deluxe edition is pretty appealing.

An anime isn't bad just because you didn't like it. 

This! 

 

Same for games, everyone has different tastes and opinions.  Just because it didn't agree with you doesn't make it bad.  All the issues and complaints that were said about SAO and all the other anime that were "bad" I don't agree with.  I can understand the point, but I can say that for every single game/anime.  There's no perfect one and there will always be people who don't like even the best of the best.

 

It just boggles the mind that a lot of you do actually like "bad" stuff according to the general masses, yet hate on all the popular stuff.  I might seem like a hypocrite since I generally don't get into the popular stuff either, but I can't say they are bad just because it wasn't for me.  If everyone lists their favorites, I can probably tell you everything wrong with it to the point that it would look like garbage to someone not familiar with it.  But that doesn't make it bad though.

Anyone who hates One Punch Man is my enemy. I tried to resist it and then binge watched it in 2 days, then watched the amazing dub. Not sure if I want to read the manga or just wait for season 2

The theme song is the ultimate hype up song.

There are two versions of the manga. ONE does the original which looks fairly bad but has its own charm, then the remake is him partnering with the guy that did the Eyeshield 21 series and matches more closely the look of the anime. If you want to read the manga I'd suggest doing the original version since it's a major arc further along even though ONE has been spending most of his time with Mob Psycho 100 which unfortunately isn't as good.

Having watched One Punch right after Prison School, it simply didn't stack up. Prison School was a much better show in my opinion.

That's not really a fair representation of what most of ONE's version looks like, though. It's never good but the top picture you chose is far worse than what it typically looks like. Here's the latest complete chapter:

I am actually really annoyed at just now learning that there is a physical version of Atelier Escha and Logy Plus. That is going to be an absolute bastard to get now.

Also, as for Sword Art, I haven't watched it yet. But, based on some of the actual well thought out criticisms that I've seen (not the comment dwellers yelling on either side about how great or terrible it is), I think the complaints seem quite valid. I plan on watching it soon, though. If the criticisms that I have read about from sources that I trust are present, then the show has every right to be criticized. This is of course compounded by people claiming it's zomg the best animu ever.

I like all kinds of things that aren't very good because I like certain elements or find them interesting, but my liking them doesn't make them inherently good. And, while there is no true objectivity for reviewing something, some critiques are much more valid than others--can't stress this enough--and separating out liking something vs it being actually good is a skill that too few possess.

Criticizing is fine.  Passing judgement is another thing altogether.  Especially when you're into similarly weird shit yourself.

Very true. Even this season, I'm having a lot of fun with Keijo!!!!!!!! even though I know some people despise this kind of anime.

I love Prison School. Been reading it for years, and the anime was pretty much perfect in its adaptation. How I feel about the manga the last few months is a completely different matter. 

 

I watched One Punch Man and thought it was brilliant two episodes in. Then it just never changes. It's always the same exaggerated setup with the same kind of punchline. The animation is great, the characters are funny in their own right, but just stopped caring about it completely.

Fan service shows will always come out....I honestly don't mind them (I liked Hundred like two seasons ago) although I know I will likely forget about them after I watch them. I will likely watch the first episode of Keijo...heck if it's better than that one where it involved a game or something where they could fly with their shoes and touch poles to score or something....I just know I was bored out of my mind with it.

Since we're still talking about anime, did anyone else see Kizumonogatari Part 2 recently? I just went with a friend last night to see it and it was awesome! So much better than the first part. Plus the little flyer/art print they gave out was pretty nice too.

Yep! I had to drive an hour to see it, but it was worth it. I'm kind of tempted to go again before it's gone.

 

 

Speaking of Kizu, part 1 is up for preorder...$70. Thx Aniplex.

Want a movie? It'll be $70.

 

Want half of an anime (12 episodes out of 24)? That'll be $300.

Yeah, it's disappointing. I cry inside anytime i see Aniplex gets the rights to a series I like.

 

 

Theater did have the little poster things for the movie this time, so that was nice. Disappointed I didn't get one when I went to see part 1.
