Unpopular Opinions

7 posts in this topic

Everyone has their own personal opinion on certain things but sometimes our opinions may differentiate from most people. Well, let's celebrate our different opinions by showcasing our own unpopular opinions in this thread. They don't have to be just of a TV show, movie, or video game, they can be unpopular opinions of real-life things as well.

So, here's some of mine to get the gist of it:

  • Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS is just as good if not better than A's. In fact, I would say it's tied with A's as the best entry in the Lyrical Nanoha franchise in my opinion. Sure, A's was an amazing season but something about StrikerS makes it better for me. Unlike A's which was the most emotional and heartfelt entry in the franchise, StrikerS did the whole "magical girl meets mecha meets battle shonen" thing that the Nanoha franchise is known for and quadrupled it, and it was awesome. The battles were some of the best that entire Nanoha franchise has to offer, the new characters were great (except Regius Gaiz, the worst character in the entire franchise who isn't either from ViVid or Force, thank the Burning Gundam that he got killed near the end of the series), the villains (Jail Scaligetti & the Numbers and Lutecia, Garyu, Zest, and Agito) were good, the NanoFate fan service was great (them becoming the two "mamas" of Vivio put a smile to my face), how we saw Subaru, Teana, Erio, and Caro grow as mages/knights was great, and the last few episodes (especially the ending to the final episode) really capped off the season (and the original trilogy) so well that I honestly feel like the Lyrical Nanoha franchise should've (chronologically) ended there (like it was probably originally meant to be but no, Seven Arcs just had to make ViVid and Force, the two worst entries in the franchise). Overall, I love Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS and I think it's right up to par with A's if not, higher than it.
  • I think that Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi is so bad it's good. It so perfectly encapsulates what the 2000's were in a nutshell that it's hard to take it seriously.
  • I prefer physical media to digital media because at least with physical media, I can keep it forever unlike with digital streaming services where if the show you were watching was removed from there, tough luck kid.
  • Speaking of digital streaming services, there's so much better services to stream TV shows and TV movies than Netflix. Where I live (the United States), Hulu, Crunchyroll, Amazon, and even YouTube all offer so much better content than Netflix. With Netflix, most good stuff either has been removed from the service and/or is just not on there and most of the stuff on there is terrible or uninteresting to me. So, I feel like Netflix focuses more on quantity over quality really and that makes it terrible to me.
  • The Nintendo Switch is an overrated $300 glorified gaming tablet that doesn't deserve most of the praise it gets. It also has the absolute worst fanbase for any console ever because the fanboys just won't stop demanding every new game that gets announced to be ported on to it! I think you are honestly going to be better off with a PS4. Sure, it's online is more expensive than the Switch's but PS4 has a much better game library anyways so yeah.........
  • Gundam SEED and Gundam SEED Destiny are currently my two most favorite anime series of all time, nuff said.

So, feel free to share your own unpopular opinions if you have any you want to share.

^You are missing the "point" in more than two things up there, but to each it´s own.

 

- Boku No Hero Academia is STILL a generic shonen anime by all means.

What did is still what the previous did, Took notes to improve based on everything before and is just as unique as the previous ones at the time. The only thing missing is the epic good fights which was the trade for more "Words/story" time. Also every character suck at actual fighting skills (except Mashirao) which makes sense but still, this anime could use little filler during fights.

 

- Youtube´s Layout should keep the old ones as Options instead of completely remove them since they never really add any feature that breaks the previous one and suddenly forcing a change that was not needed to begin with never looks good.

 

- The lack of Local Multiplayer and online ONLY kills the game for me, while understandable why at times it´s removed, the most annoying and pointless one is "Can´t handle dual screen due the demanding graphics". No game should kill options for graphics (IMO)

 

- I know there are not many that draw, sprite or GFX on this forum BUT!

This Forum needs to completely separate  "Art Sub-section" from the "videos, music and memes, ect other media", is annoying and quiet sad to get your work buried and make it go unnoticed by these, and the fact you are so much better just only using the status update for artwork which shouldn´t (IMO) be a thing.

 

Guess that´s all for now.

Why?

I honestly thought that MGLN StrikerS was pretty polarizing even within the Lyrical Nanoha fandom. It's one of those shows that everyone seems to either love it or hate it and I also thought that most people (even those who liked StrikerS) tended to prefer A's to StrikerS.

Oh, and I have a few other ones:

  • I hate Puella Magi Madoka Magica with a burning passion! The main protagonist is an all-around wimp who doesn't transform until near the end of the series, Kyubey is a sadistic stalker, the show treats magical girls in a negative light (I know it is supposed to be a deconstruction of the genre but it doesn't mean you have to make being a magical girl a bad thing!), the fact that people praise it for being so original and groundbreaking even though tons of magical girl series have had those types of themes before, and it's just a very cruel and mean-spirited rip-off of a much superior magical girl series which came out the previous year (HeartCatch Precure)! Overall, I think that PMMM is the most overrated magical girl series ever made and one of the most overrated animes ever made. If you like it, that's fine with me but Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha (especially the first 3 seasons) is still the best magical girl anime of all time and WAY better than that pretentious, edgelord-and-elitst-pandering trash in my books.
  • I don't like Disney. They are the Apple of the entertainment industry: an incompetent, greedy, super-overrated-and-overhyped company who seeks to take over the world by making and selling sappy garbage to their loyal customers who are willing to eat up anything by their rodent overlords. Also, I'm baffled that the US government hasn't dismantled their monopoly yet as they've bought too much stuff (Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm, and recently Fox) over the past couple of years! If Walt Disney was still alive today, then he would facepalm at what his company has become! By the way, the only movies I like from them are Frozen and Lilo & Stitch.
  • Geneon's English dub of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha and Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's was terrible. Most of the voice actors of that dub sounded bored out of their minds and I feel like Christina Vee's voice just didn't fit the White Devil herself (especially when she was a child in the original and A's) that much. With voice acting so bland as oatmeal like that, it's no wonder why they never dubbed StrikerS. To me, nothing quite captures the essence of Nanoha and Fate more than their original Japanese seiyuus/voice actors Yukari Tamura and Nana Mizuki respectively.
  • I like Whoppers (I am talking about the candy, not the signature burgers from Burger King). Sure, they don't taste like the normal chocolates I'm used to but I dunno. I guess I just like anything chocolate with something crunchy inside.
  • I don't get the hate behind lima beans and candy corn.
  • Halo Top brand ice cream is underrated.
  • Sriracha sauce is the most overrated food stuff ever. It's too spicy and there's merchandise of it everywhere for some reason. I just can't stand it. It also doesn't help that people worship it like it was invented by the gods! Yeesh! It's just a glorified, souped-up Vietnamese hot sauce for crying out loud!

I agree. The same should happen with Gmail as well.

I also have two more to share:

  • I find the whole debate on if pineapples should be put on pizza or not very dumb. I sure like me some pizza with pineapple on it (especially if it has chicken on it as well).
  • Mars's "Left Twix vs. Right Twix" ad campaign just doesn't make any sense to me because it's obvious that both of the bars look the exact same!
