All right, let’s get another tag post crossed off the list.
This one is the Unpopular Opinions Tag, although I feel like my Throwing 8 Overrated Anime Under the Bus post was probably more of an “unpopular opinions” post than this will be.
Let’s give it a whirl though.
I suppose I must thank the one who nominated me for this tag. After all, tag posts don’t just appear from thin air. There has to be a source.
And so this post was brought to you in part by Lynn Sheridan, The Otaku Author; the man who travelled the world with naught but a pen and a dream to see his story come to fruition, only to meet his end in the harsh wilderness of Northern Ontario.
The rules are that there are no rules.
7. A Popular Series that I Don’t Like
Neon Genesis Evangelion.
6. A Series Everybody Hates that I Love
It seems a lot of people don’t like Rewrite.
So I’ll go with that.
5. A Love Triangle where the Person Ended up with the Person You Didn’t Like
I would have liked to see Koyomi Araragi end up with Tsubasa Hanekawa instead of Hitagi Senjougahara. As much as I like Hitagi, I just happen to like Tsubasa more.
That said, I don’t really care at the end of the way when it comes to these things.
4. A Popular Genre that You Hardly Watch
I’m going to throw Cute Girls Doing Cute Things out here, because I actively avoid this genre. If I even have an inkling that an anime is CGDCT, I will not watch it. I do not enjoy this genre at all, and it always feels like it was a total waste of time when I do watch it.
3. A Beloved Character You Don’t Like
Saber from the Fate Series.
She’s just so boring and overused I think.
2. A Popular Trope You’re Tired of Seeing
Honestly, I’m tired of watching the underdog win. It seems hard-coded in society for the underdog to always win in some way or another. I’ve been saying this for a long time now on the blog, but I want to see more realism. More tragedy.
Naturally not every story has to be this way, but it just feels so rare for a story to be so unapologetic these days that it really is exciting to come across one that doesn’t hesitate.
1. A Movie or Show Adaptation You Prefer More than the Manga
All of them, I’ve never read a manga.
There you have it.
My unpopular opinions, although they’re probably not all that unpopular.
Unpopular opinion #2: 90% of the time the statement following those two words is actually a popular opinion that people frame as an unpopular opinion in order to look like they are in the minority for those underdog points.
Unpopular opinion #3: this is literally just a repackage of the “am I the only one who…” meme, and no, you’re not the only one.
Anyways, that’s another tag post down. This was the first time I’d done this one, and maybe the last, we’ll see. I don’t think it’s that great of a tag post, the questions aren’t very good. Just my two cents.
And that does it for this one.
Until next time,
Thanks for reading.
