DBZ, I haven't really tried it but I have seen a bit; its funny, but not something I would really watch especially since it is so long. Vegeta is awesome though.

Naruto...  Seven Deadly Sins....

 

Actually, most mainstream action-based titles I avoid these days.  The fact that I picked up and enjoyed AoT was fairly surprising and so I give them extra points for pulling me in (even though the MC is really annoying at times).  I find most mainstream anime suffer horribly from lack of creativity, carbon copies of one another with the events in different orders and different names for the characters.

 

I also am not a fan of Evangelion, which I have been led to believe is extremely popular.

One piece.

I think you need a lot of patience to watch that anime as for things to happen in that anime take time. So I only watched 50 episode out of 800 and gave up. 

I just didn’t have the patience to wait for things to happen so I skip episodes and that ruined it. 

I might try to watch it one more time.

I'm of the opinion that Bleach, One Piece, and Naruto are all clones of one another. And they all bore me half to death. Too many cringeworthy scenes where they are supposed to be fighting but they have to stop what they're doing to talk to their opponent, and somehow their opponent is super polite and just... lets them. Not that those three are the only anime guilty of this. DBZ and My Hero are also pretty big offenders. I think it's just a general gripe about anime.

You know what? While I'm here, if anybody knows of an anime with fight scenes that play like John Wick, I'd love to hear about it.

One anime that I thought I would love cause all my friends were raving about it at the time was fruits basket .. but I couldn’t get into. Just found it a bit dull and boring. Was thinking to give it another chance now but not sure... 🤔

The anime - gurren laggan - is a anime where they don’t stop in a fight to talk to each other.  Overall this is a great anime. 

But I would recommend an anime where they stop in a fight to talk to each other. The anime is - Tokyo ghoul - . This is because the language they use to describe the taste of each other’s flesh is mad.

Devilman Crybaby. 

I didn't like the artwork from the beginning, and I just couldn't get into the occult stuff. I wasn't sure how the "devil" portion would play into it, since often yokai is translated to "devil" when it's really quite different. I just don't tend to like occult themes.

Bleach, Naruto, Fairy Tail, One Piece, Attack on Titan, Sword Art Online, Inuyasha, Tokyo Ghoul, Pokémon, to name a few off the top of my head. 

Not sure why, just don’t like any of them.

I'll back you on this. For what little anime I get to watch, I'm open to experimenting as long as I have the accessibility and time (dodging two kids for some content and all.) So when a friend of mine on my team said they were watching it, but didn't think it was suitable for the trivia that we write, so I took it as a personal dare. Soon as they got to that club in the first episode, though, I was like, "Yeah, this is too whacked out."

She's told me after the fact how it all plays out and that the ending of the series is very satisfying. Tear-inducing, even. But getting to it is very taxing. Anyone here wanna back that claim up?

Well I don't like any of the well known 'tcg' animes like Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Beyblades, Digimon, etc. (๑-﹏-๑)

Omg, I can't stand that series. I tried three times to get into One Piece but just couldn't do it. The first time I fell asleep, the second time I got into something else and third I complained the whole time to my fiance that I think it's boring (because for some reason that's his favorite series and he keeps trying to get me into it) until he let me do something else, lol.

 

I just don't understand the humor, the action was dull and the artwork I didn't much care for. Plus I thought it was too slow for my taste.
