So what you're saying is that if School Rumble was more "popular" and had more "fans" talking about it you would drop it because of that... I take it that you're one of those lost souls who abandons a particular show just because it "becomes popular..." Sad, really.

Well, Ghibli flicks aren't adapted from light novels (which are selling like hotcakes in East Asia...whoops! That dreaded "popular" meter is running dangerously high!) serialized in monthly magazines. And you're also implying that ugly people have few redeeming traits... what a shallow form of reasoning! And since your main point seems to be "if it's popular, it sucks!" your arguments don't have any legs to stand on.
