Anime fans asked which anime they have trouble understanding the popularity of seem mystified by the huge popularity enjoyed by several recent blockbusters.

The ranking:

1. Ano Hi Mita Hana

2. K-ON!

3. Puella Magi Madoka Magica

4. Hetalia

5. A Channel

6. Steins;gate

7. All of the To Aru series

8. Hanasaku Iroha

9. Tiger & Bunny

10. All NicoNico anime

11. Gintama

12. The IdolMaster

13. Toradora!

14. Bakemonogatari

15. One Piece

A surprisingly broad cross-section of recent anime seems to be evidence, confounding those who might expect to see the list packed with vapid moeblob and pantsu anime – although the divisiveness of K-ON! is by now hardly surprising.

    Most? Only?

    Well I have the slight suspect companies producing theese animes made up the results either to popularize their creations or defame rival animes...

    Or maybe HDTV radiation (or lack of it), ecchi, fanservice and/or watching the same plots and clichés over and over, melted people's brains and the actual results are true

    The more popular an anime becomes, the more haters it get purely based on the number of people seeing it.

    It's not because it's what they "remember", it's because THESE ARE THE ONLY ANIME THEY HAVE SEEN.

    cuz these kinds of anime are either love or hate, the haters get on the hate lists and the lovers get on the love lists, that being said, all the anime on this list I've watched were amazing except madoka which only proved its worthiness of the popularity behind it to me in the climax

    actually the only anime from the list that are worth watching are Madoka and Railgun.

    Why Madoka is on the list is probably because the first 2 episodes could disappoint some ppl giving them a false conviction that is is childish.

    Nooo. I think it's pretty obvious that Madoka just went over your head. Often, people who can't comprehend something will find that thing "stupid".

    Nothing to be embarrassed about. I'm sure you are simply young and know no better.

    Perhaps its too complex for them to understand.
    We're talking about people who'd rather watch/play eroge titles for the simplicity and the "plot".

    And you probably have never actually read the plot in some eroges. Some of them have a pretty deep plot

    F/SN the VN vs F/SN the anime, the VN actually blows the anime out of the water with its storytelling.

    You don't just get an idiot hero, but you get to find out why he does the things he does, and more often than not, there is a certain logic to it. Which was completely lacking in the anime.

    Clannad was originally an eroge.

    >>Clannad was originally an eroge.

    And the only reason it's famous is because it killed a angelic character. I guess that's as much depth as we'll get in an eroge, but come on.

    Say that 'eroge can't be deep in plot' and tell that to me with a straight face after playing Yume Miru Kusuri and especially Kana Little Sister.

    Eroge downright created the notion that games should be emotionally engaging. People who write it off as a genre has no idea what they are talking about.

    Clannad is an eroge?Talking like a genius, deep down you just don't know anything. You don't even know the difference of an all age visual novel and eroge.

    You're not supposed to watch One Piece, you're supposed to read the manga... It'll make you cry how sad it can be. D:

    Read the one piece manga, it was stupid.

    Comment by Anonymous

    I watched like 5 or 6 eps because of the insane popularity and I can of figured that a show that has over 500 eps to date should be doing something right.
    Nope I didn't see it, maybe I chose the wrong eps but I can tell you I liked bleach and naruto better

    Comment by Anonymous

    But yea the manga is way better than the anime.
    There is actually some depth in the manga unlike the "targeted at kids" anime.

    Comment by Anonymous

    Most people that like One Piece just can't accept that there are people that don't like One Piece.

    They always resort to petty insults or say that people haven't watched/read enough of it to form an actual opinion on it.

    I don't need to watch 250 episodes or read 300 chapters of it to know I'm not interested in it. If it doesn't grab my attention in the first few episodes/chapters, I'm not going to bother spending ~100 hours on it.

    Comment by Anonymous

    I watched about 100 episodes of it, until that other chick joined the team. If 100 episodes isn't enough to decide something is crap, fuck off.
