A fun little exercise is going around Twitter right now where users write controversial opinions on any topic of fancy. I personally like it because controversial opinions are always fun and quite frankly it is a lot of fun to see what people think is controversial. I will be honest though, I do not know if some twitter folks actually know what controversial means... However, you can judge if I am controversial enough for your taste. Controversial opinions go!
- Akira is an overrated film and the upcoming anime adaptation will do the story more justice.
- Sword Art Online is not terrible. Nor is it great. It has been both at different times. Furthermore, it does not deserve the amount of attention it receives.
- Log Horizon is VASTLY superior to Sword Art Online.
- Gundam Wing and Gundam SEED are good Gundam series.
- Yu Yu Hakusho’s Chapter Black Arc is a superior arc to Hunter x Hunter’s Chimera Ant Arc.
- Dragon Ball is better than Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball Super does not suck.
- Fairy Tail is good and its final season was a great adaptation.
- Demon Slayer (the anime) is only okay.
- Subs are not inherently better than Dubs. Some dubs are superior to subs!
- Phantom Blood is the best (animated) JoJos Bizarre Adventure part.
- Bakuman is a superior anime and manga to Death Note.
- The Vision of Escaflowne is the best 90s mecha series
- Netflix has been a positive for the anime community.
- Just because an anime is popular does not mean its bad.
- Just because an anime is popular does not mean its good.
- Studio Ghibli is coasting on past success (and Ni No Kuni was terrible)
- Attack on Titan was massively overrated in Season One. It is now underrated.
- One Punch Man Season 2 was not trash it was okay.
- Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood is overrated (still great though).
- Code Geass is superior to Code Geass R2.
- I have no controversial opinions on Gintama I love Gintama.
I think that is a good enough batch of controversy. I hope you leave some controversial opinions in the comments while tearing mine apart. I also hope you had as fun a time reading as I did writing this.
