Aaah, the always right taste of the masses. I think I sometimes actively avoid certain series just because they’re way too hyped. I’m a small hipster, what can I say?
There’s Naruto that I’ve never cared for. There’s Bleach. But, most notable, there’s Sword Art Online.
For whatever reason, the “normal people stuck in a MMORPG” concept has never appealed to me. MMORPGs in general didn’t appeal to me, but it’s worse in anime. Maybe that’s the reason. Maybe I see it as an enhanced, more annoying type of MMORPG boredom that’s exaggerated.
I wish there was more I could say about this series. You know, maybe it’s great. I mean, whenever I end up watching something that’s highly praised, I end up with an “aaaaah, that’s what everyone was talking about” feeling. Because yeah, they wouldn’t be so popular if they weren’t at least somehow good.
But I don’t care about this series. I have it on my want to watch list, but I’m 97.8% sure I’ll never actually watch it. It’s just something that doesn’t ring any bell for me. It doesn’t float my boat. It does’t tickle my pickle.
There’s nothing I can curse at in today’s challenge. Because I don’t know the series. But I sure as hell know I’m not going to watch it anytime soon and if I hear one more person in the office going “OMG SAO IS JUST SO GREAT I MEAN OH JEE YOU DIDN’T WATCH IT WHAT ARE YOU”, I’m gonna slap a hoe.
What’s the one super popular anime series that you don’t give a crap about?
