    6th most recorded series... Mahou Sensou. Probably used it to punish misbehaved kids.

    Yeah, the ending to Mahou Sensou sucked. i'm wondering how they could have ended an anime like that. Talk about the ultimate WTF anime of the season.

    It's not the ending, the anime from the beginning was basically so bland as if the author wrote it with a book of overused anime cliches as a reference.

    Some of the weapons design were nice and original, but apart from that the anime has absolutely nothing unique to present.

    The clichéd evil big brother vs little sister who cares for said brother plot made me lol. So overused.

    Pointless? Why it's VERY to the Point for Producers of mentioned series when now they KNOW what people saw & NOT saw. It makes them decide with actual FACTS what made MONEY & what DIDN'T make money. Therefore now w/ said FACTS, they can decide what to make in the FUTURE based on FACTS, instead of estimates, predictions and Huge FUCKING guesses!
    ...& that is the POINT-

    Of course KLK was highly recorded - it was mostly targetted to young teen boys, and they don't stay up that late.

    For people who are saying an anime is overrated, Just shhh.

    For those who Enjoy an anime and wanna say something good about it, Go ahead.

    For those who're gonna exaggerate on an anime's epicness, Just don't expect no one to hate on you.

    Some people enjoy it, Others don't. if you don't enjoy it, does that make it a FACT that the show is terrible? No. If you enjoy it, is it a FACT that it's an amazing show? NO. if you HATE it, Then just comment on something you DO enjoy.

    if you hated everything from last season, then just say it. You don't have to be like "all the animes were made for kids" or "Everyone who watched or enjoyed an anime from winter season are pretty stupid. Their taste are horrid." Since when were YOUR taste superior to others'? Everyone's taste is their own. Even if you're not saying ur tastes are better, whether someone's taste is good or bad all depends on each person THEMSELVES. You can only say their tastes don't suit yours.

    Sure, it might be a little repetitive, but it's a fun process never the less.

    But your wrong about one thing. I AM the center of MY world so whatever I feel is a fact in my book. My taste is obviously superior to anyone elses. If it wasn't I would need to consult other people to know how I feel about things.

    Now I know if you're a really religious person this is how the world works for you, since you want guidance and stuff. But I'm not. I'm the master of my own world.

    It's what individualism has done to me, I don't give a shit about other peoples opinions on the internet.

    Having said all that.. it's just a form of entertainment, so stop pointing out the patterns and enjoy the show!

    K. My reply to u either disappeared or didn't show up. Srry if I spam...

    I agree that People are the controllers of their own world. You may say your own Feelings, tastes, etc are a fact To yourself. But this doesn't truly make it a Fact in reality. You may say Naruto is the best. You may say you love naruto. yOur love for naruto can be a fact, And in your own world, You Can say that it's a fact that naruto is the best. But in reality, This is just an opinion. it's not true for others, But sin'ce it's true for yourself, You can state it as a fact I your world.

    By superior tastes, That's not exactly what I meant.
    I agree, My own tastes are also superior to other ppls tastes.. but that's for ME. My tastes are the best tastes FOR ME, therefore, making my taste the most superior FOR ME. Same with everyone else, Their own tastes are the best for them. What I meant by Superior tastes, I meant people saying THEIR OWN TASTES is better FOR OTHER PEOPLE. People's own tastes are bestf or them, But they aren't the best for other people. They can't decide what taste is better for others, but can only decide what is best for themselves.

    1st big paragraph, last line: "YOu can state it as a fact in your own world." The typo wa sbetween fact and Your.

    2nd big paragraph, 8th line: "Tastes are best for them" Typo between best and them. Few other typos in there, but these were the biggest ones. You can make out with the other ones, these could've confused ppl.

    Sure, you shouldn't force your beliefs upon others.

    On the other hand.. that's how religions work, isn't it? And it worked great for them as far as I can see.

    I was just saying cuz 1.Wanted to say something and 2. I kinda get tired of this.. Is till do enjoy reading everything which I read, whether its positive or negative.

    people can put what you feel as a fact in their own world, But Technically speaking, Your feelings wouldn't make something an actual fact.. Like, "NARUTO IS THE BEST." or "NARUTO IS GARBAGE". You may feel this as a fact in your own world. This may change in the future and you might stick to the new feeling, But overall, it isn't an actual fact. Saying You love Naruto, Your love for naruto could be a fact. If it changes to hatred, Your hatred could then be a fact. Your hatred for naruto could make you say naruto is a bad show. To yourself, you Can say it's a fact in your world, But in reality, It's just an opinion.

    Also, Same with tastes being superior. Every person's Own tastes are the best tastes for themselves. My own tastes are superior to others (for me), Cuz mine are the best FOR ME. But what I meant was, when people say Their tastes are the best not only for themselves, but also for other people. You can't decide which tastes are better for others. basically, One's own taste is superior than others For themselves. One's taste is not always the best for Other people. That's what I meant by tastes being superior.

    "A word which recently has been used liberally as a way of discrediting something without having to give a proper justification, most often when someone finds they have a disliking for a popular phenomenom and is resentful of those who embrace it. Often used by anti-trendies. "

    "An overly used word by ppl who dont like something."

    Man,the word overrated has been thrown around like a cheap condom lately that it has lost its original meaning.

    6. Magical Warfare (Mahou Sensou)

    Who in the FLYING FUCK actually liked this show?

    I slogged through the entirety of it and it was garbage.

    Way too generic, characters were so abrasive, and there was no weight at all to the conflict.

    That ED song was badass, though.

    Nobody ever claimed the anime on those list are liked by anyone. They're just most recorded.

    Didn't you ever record shows you never even ended up watching but recorded them anyway? I did back in the VHS days.

    Who knows, once upon a time I recorded Wolfs Rain and I will never know why. Maybe the name sounded cool and the first time I checked it out was after I had recorded everything.

    Magical Warfare is a pretty cool sounding name, too.

    I've enjoyed KLK like no other anime in years. It was epic, hilarious and intense. Although the story is a complete nonsense and the plot is less deep than a puddle. In overall KLK is a very good (understanding good as enjoyable) anime.

    Sorry about my bad english.

    In fact, shit taste is mostly attributed to people who loved KlK.
    The fanbase is evidence to that phenomenon.

    This. A million times this.

    Anime "fans" need to get the fuck off it when people like shows they don't like. There are plenty of anime that I dislike/hate with a passion but the difference is I don't bitch and moan about it. Man up, stfu, and move on.
