    The series that I ended up returning to anime with was Moshidora. It didn't have any eccentric characters that I can remember, and it was pretty well-grounded in reality. It connected well with me at the time. From there I went on to Aria, a series that I had watched about halfway through years ago but never ended up finishing. Aria is presented in such a manner that it has just enough anime eccentricities packaged to make the transition to other series easier, yet it wasn't off-putting to someone no longer used to them.

    Maybe when Guilty Crown ends I'll give Steins;Gate a second try.

    Thanks for the rep! ^_^ It leaves me curious though - How far into my Madoka Magica fanfic are you, and what do you think of it so far?

    And I present you with two hilarious pics . I added them to the Mari Okada club thread.

    Which is fine, and its the same as "does the opinion of the few really equals quality?"

    Again, I don't have problem with criticism as long as they states the it's their personal opinion. It's the ones that don't state the said criticism as opinion and don't offer their own reason that I have problem with. Even worse, some would even drop one-liner and which they claimed as fact that is simply not true.

    Again using the same AW thread as example, in earlier comments someone just mention that they can't stand Yoshino and how Yoshino is overrated and the example he gives are Guilty Crown (which is fine) and SEED Destiny. when others and me mentioned that he was only involved in a handle of episode, the dude disappeared.

    Another poster had problem with Yoshino because he "ruined" the anime adaption of Seikon no Qwaser. when people mentioned that he is the writer and creator for the manga as well, he disappeared.

    Those are the types of people that I have problem with. Is is really hard to just acknoledge that they didn't know or made a mistake? If they want they can even pick another of his work instead, but they don't. They just disappears...

    Anime (and science fiction, fantasy in general) is fiction, and we all know it. Sometimes they make everything up; other times they have a bit of reality as a base and then build up a lot of fantasy on it. I know this, and appreciate it. And before Steins;Gate, I never had a problem with it.

    But Steins;Gate just pushed the science domain too much. It wasn't just the fantasy science, but their drawing on the scientific community. It reminded me too much of my reality. The problem with that is that, the way I was trained (and the way all of the scientists around me behaved), is that you accept nothing and are skeptical of all claims. You're not out to tear everyone down, but the way that we go about the process, it certainly seems that way. A lot of my peers hated giving oral presentations, because they felt like the question and answer session was akin to going before a firing squad One of the post-docs I worked with warned me when I started that the skepticism ingrained into scientists from the training doesn't make them very popular, and it's certainly true! Already a few times my wife has gotten flustered with me as she recounted a news story or a presentation that she heard, and I would retort with questions and skeptical remarks. I have to remind myself to keep it to myself.

    Given all of that, here we had this character who's behaving like a jerk (IMO) and who is making all of these grandiose claims. The more grandiose the claim in science, the more people look to disprove you (unless it's too grandiose and clearly whacky, in which case you get ignored). With all of my scientific senses triggered, it was just too much to bear.

    And I also recall thinking to myself, "every single one of these characters should be on psychiatric medications" Almost all anime characters have weird, quirky behaviors, but it had been so long since I'd watched something that the mannerisms exhibited in Steins;Gate were difficult for me to watch. I had to slowly get back into anime with a series that had more normal-behaving characters.

    Not at all, I welcome the comment

    I didn't watch the series beyond episode 1. What you're saying wouldn't be surprising, since a lot of anime series seem to deal with characters who have various insecurities. It was just unrelenting - I would have thought that they'd reveal it in some form or another that he was putting on a facade, but since they didn't, it just seemed to me as if that was the character. I'll reconsider the show once I've finished some of the others that I'm currently watching.

    oh, I don't give a damn on neg reps nor the comment. I'm much more pissed that the dude is such a wimp that he, or she, left a provocative message and then runs away with tails in between the legs.

    As for the the people in that crowd comment, you'd be surprised if you read the through the Accel World thread. When the commercial argument was presented, suddenly people in those group just disappears. And it's a recurring theme all over the place and that pisses me off because I want to have a debate and exchange views, it's how you grow as fans and or even as a person.

    The ones that continues to argue are the rare ones that gives you civil discussion and states that it's their personal opinion to begin with. So in my mind they are not part of that group and I have the respect of the world for them even if I don't agree sometimes.

    As for the freedom of speech part, you're right, but in that case, they shouldn't making a post that questions why others feels the need to defend other people because it's the same thing that gives them the right to diss and critique people. (That's if assuming the one who left the message is the original poster of the question, but either way it was a cowardly action by gutless individual)

    I view is that if they aren't willing o get critique themselves, don't critique other people.
