    Default Why is it?

    How come most of the people here only watch or know about those crappy animes on Adult Swim? Haven't you people learned to branch out more?

    You guys need to move away from FMA, Inu Yasha, and Samurai Champloo.
    Now, I know there's a good many of Sailor Moon, Chobits, and Love Hina animes, wich don't come on adult swim but still, we've all seen those!

    So who's going to answer my question, why do we keep talking about the same old animes on tihs forum?

    If anything, Sailor Moon, Chobits, and Love Hina are also extremly popular. If you want to see some good (and semi-popular) animes, check out: Perfect Blue, Kite, Kaleido Star, Project A-ko, Lain, XXXHolic....well, I could go on.
    Anyway, most kids dont have access or money to other anime titles, so they have to take what they get-cartoon network

    As MaruDashi pointed out, most of the run-of-the-mill fans around the forum just don't have access to the more elusive animes. Mainstream animes are so "out there" and readily availible to pretty much any kid with cable, so they're popular and discussed much more often. It also makes any members around here with further developed tastes in anime to get frustrated at the ranting and gibberish posted by these viewers.

    I don't see it as completely their fault. I myself have watched a few dozen animes, but cannot begin to compare to some of the other members around here. But I can't help but agree that there are other animes out there besides Naruto, Inuyasha, Chobits, Love Hina, FMA etc. It never hurts to broaden one's horizons, right? Easier said than done I'm afraid.

    Well, people like me (and Im sure Animefreak91 as well) are getting extremly tired of seeing 'OMG, Inuyasha is so c00l, he pwns every1 l0lz'
    When a discussion comes up about...lets say Perfect Blue (fantastic movie...) no one really respondes, because not to many people have seen it. So it does get very annoying to see dozens of threads on just Inuyasha, F.M.A, Naruto, and the others

    Thats kinda being hipocritical. If everyone watched that movie. You would be getting mad because people ARENT watching Inyuasha F.M.A and naruto. The wheel spins full circle.

    The idea is that some people here would like to see more of a variety. It doesn't matter which anime it is that everyone is obsessing over, but it's limited to usually 3-4 series, and there are so many more out there that people would love if they'd just look. Expand your horizons a little and look at some of the other shows that are there.

    1. dont double post.
    2. No its not. I know three people who've seen the movie. If more people watched the movie I might be able to have a nice conversation with them about it. But guess what? Adult Swims never going to air the movie, so no ones going to watch it. The 'wheel doesnt spin full circle'. Not to mention I cant stand Inuyasha or F.M.A...naruto is barely tolerable. What we're complaining about is that everyone makes a million threads on friggin Inuyasha and the others but dont bother to try to check out other titles. I would be thrilled if there was even HALF the threads on (again, lets use Perfect Blue as an example) PB as there are for F.M.A
    Do try to read all posts before you make a statement like that, then youd know excatly whats going on

    Yay! People understand where i'm coming from. Gimme a second to review.

    Uh huh... Interesting. Mhm, quite.... Hmm, Indeed.

    Well, looks to me like Maru and Regex pointed out my point quite well. That's just what i'm talking about. Variety and and a bit more inteligence when we talk about them. Here's what I want people to do, go to suncoast, find and buy the Orphen animes if they are there. Then, decide that there are more animes waiting to be discorvered, such as Read or Die or Desert Punks.

    Try and be like me a little and buy some anime DVD's straight from Japan without the english subtitles. And example is Xenosage the Animation, interesting improvement on the game. I loves it. I dislike most adult swim animes because they draw in anime guru wannabe's like flies on crap, or me to hot asian chicks. I didn't say that.

    Oh and one more thing...

    Casshern. Buy it. Buy it now. If you don't...
    I will kill you.

    Some people can't afford anything but what's mainstream. Sad, but true. Not everyone has friends that they can borrow anime from either, or places to rent it.

    Inuyasha/Naruto/Champloo are shows that can be easily watched and at just the price of cable. Really, I can't afford anime. I don't remember the last time I bought an anime DVD or VHS. I like Adult Swim, so that's all I manage to watch noways.

    Not all the shows shown on Adult Swim are bad; Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, FLCL... Those are just a few of the good quality animation they offer. Sure, Naruto may get tiresome after awhile, but you gotta give some people a break.

    Ami-Chan makes a great point which I think is a disagreement to what you guys are saying. Yes, they should branch out from the run-of-the-mill animes, but hey ... y'know the average age of the member on here is like 14 to 15 years old, and these kids do not have jobs and I know for sure many of their parents aren't on the phone or online ordering anime DVDs for them. I can vouch for this because I haven't really gotten into the whole hardcore anime scene until the past year.

    I have been exposed to some animes like Slayers, Loveless, and Negima that aren't really that well known, but I know are good animes. But I get all my animes from BitTorrent, and that's only because I learned about it last year. lol So we have to all agree to disagree that whatever Adult Swim is showing currently is going to be extremely popular. And you cannot tell me that if Love Hina or Chobits (for example purposes) was massively shown through Cartoon Network, that the talk about it wouldn't get annoying. It's just how these things work. It's like a song that gets overplayed on the radio, it's still a GREAT song, but it's overplayed. Simple as that, people get sick of it.

    Also, if you have complaints about people posting the same thing over and over again, start a thread with your own anime favorite, then PROVIDE the members with some links to explain it, or I bet you could even find some decent episodes of it on YouTube.com. I know tons of people who have watched Loveless and all the Naruto episodes on YouTube.com. If you give the members on here the resources, they will talk about it.

    It's all about who has access and how they have access to it. Man ... do I write books or what? lol

    Now, I know there's a good many of Sailor Moon, Chobits, and Love Hina animes, wich don't come on adult swim but still, we've all seen those!

    So who's going to answer my question, why do we keep talking about the same old animes on tihs forum?

    One reason would be being able to spend all the money and the other would be the persons own style/liking of an anime.

    Sailor moon, Chobits and love hina are very well known by all fans but you are right, there are great anime shows people newly get to watch and so on.

    If you care to create a thread about your favorite shows that you believe are being forgotten the ones who haven't read or seen it may check it for themselves depending if they like it's style or genre.

    I hope this not about boosting other shows popularity or decreasing them.

    i agree to some extent. yes people should broaden there view to other anime then just whats on the mainstream but there is absolutely nmothing wrong with shows like naruto and sailor moon etc. yes it does get tedious and boring seeing all these different threads about the same old shows but that does not mean they are any worse then the other shows out there.


    and these shows are popular for more then just the fact that they are the only anime in some areas. they are good shows and people like them. why stop them from joining the site and giving their opinion on shows that they like wether the show is often talked about or not??

    very good point you bring up thornwillow. songs played on the radio often are played because people love the song and the song is popular. why stop the radio for playing a song that everyone loves just because its popular?

    Or...have you considered that the reason that a lot of these anime's are very popular, is simply because they are more appealing in general (general meaning not to all, but to most)? I am not saying that there aren't better anime's out there that are not so mainstream, however I have seen a lot of non-mainstream anime and 90% of the time it is rubbish. it takes a lot of work to unearth that golden 10%, which really isnt worth my time and bandwidth when I can have a more guaranteed (meaning easily researchable before watching, so I can see if I like the concept itself or not) pleasurable watching experience with such classics as cowboy bebop, champloo and such. Sure I know there are a lot of good non-mainstream anime out there, and have even watched some of it....but for some of us it just really isnt worth the effort. Who wants to download gigs upon gigs of a series, just to find out you think it is crap? This, at least for myself, has happened all too often. Unless you are fortunate enough to have a fiber optic connection, there is nothing more frustrating than waiting a day, or in the case of non mainstream (the nature of bit torrent) weeks, because of lacks of seeding and such...and have it all go straight into the recycle bin after the first episode.

    granted it still happens with mainstream anime as well, but for myself...I dont have a lot of spare time to go digging around.

    EDIT: Just wanted to add...it was mentioned earlier, but if you havn't seen the movie Perfect blue...do so now But, it isnt for the faint of heart.

    Most people know about the ones on adult swim because they are the ones that you can get on regular cable. If other anime came on different channels that the majority of the people have then they would know about them too. Another reason why is because most of the time when you look for an anime, a friend recommended it to you. The mainstream shows are the ones that get recommended the most. It's just the way things turn out.

    lol i suppose so...

    Regarding anime that can only be gotten on cable...I personally cant really stand the generally poor quality of voice acting in english dubbed series myself...so havnt watched anime on cable for years. I think to truly enjoy an anime, it needs to be seen in japanese....with subtitles if you need them. The general quality of voice acting is EXPONENTIALLY better. I think that because of the crappy voice acting in english dubs, anime has gotten as much flack as it has and been labeled a "nerd's only" domain, if only people could feel the emotion involved in some series when seen how they were made to be seen *sigh*

    Can't afford the animes?
    A box set is like 40 some dollars and a regular DVD with your average half-season on it is less than 20.
    If you can't afford things like that then you wouldn't have cable to start with. (I don't have cable by the way, I have sattelite.)
