Which genres tend to generate least discussion?

I am not merely referring to the number of threads or post-per-thread, but also about the topic - are most of the posts about saying an episode is good/bad, or are there genuine discussions about the flow of story, the cinematography, etc.

It always seem to me that romance comedy shows generate the least amount of discussion, and some shows were even forgotten before they finished screening.

It would seem to be light comedy or sports.

A lot of discussion, especially over the long term, is fueled by shipping, which is why if a writer wants to stir up shit for the next decade or so *cough* True Tears *cough*, they'll just have to troll shippers. So series that don't have that, tend to not have as much lingering discussion.

Sources of conflict really makes people do a lot of odd things.

Sports. No doubt in my mind.

I'd put sport second after childrens' shows. Some sport shows do generate serious discussion; look at the threads for Cross Game and Chihayafuru, for instance. But even a terrific show like GeGeGe no Kitarou (2018) gets little attention because it's a "kids show." Contrast that with the hundreds of posts on a mediocre show like FRANXX. I never understood why that show generated so much discussion; was it the sex?

Waifus and shipping. Writing choices that contrasted the initially interesting world/character building, particularly the bigger reveals toward the end which were very controversial.

Classic Trigger, really. They write crap shows generally but their marketing sense is the best in the business, along with maybe KyoAni.

That sounds like 90% of anime that would have been interesting, but regardless of premise, inevitably devolve into cliche shipping antics. Guess it's the easy way out.

It's better than interesting shows devolving into fighting shounens.

Aside from the above replies, I'm going to say a lot of idol anime (regardless of target audience), pretty boy-driven series and mobile game adaptations tend to generate little discussion going for it I assume.

But Macross became famous for exploiting idols while Frontier had quite an androgynous boy. Still, I don't get why it was never dubbed. Heard it was a huge success in Japan.

I felt this is one of the many big exceptions to the rule for me. Many idol shows just don't generate enough discussion even if they sell decently. Just look at some of the titles released this year like Idolish7 and Ongaku Shoujo (though that one is a flop).

AKB0048 generated a lot of discussion. There are nearly 4,000 postings in this thread. The ties between the anime and the actual idol group AKB48 had a lot to do with this as I recall. There was a lot of trivia about the actual girls and their anime "successors."

Also it had a decent story from Okada Mari and Kawamori Shouji which inspired conversation.

I thought idol shows generate hella discussion, by just virtue of having so many characters.

Or at least I noticed the incessant shipping that happens with heavily female casts.

Female idol shows tends to be more discussed here, the male one in other hand, usually very empty even in comparison to the less popular female Idol show. Even something like I7 or SideM barely generate any discussion.

Yeah, it is the same thing if you compare Cinderella Girl to SideM fandom (the type that play the games), with the later seems minuscule to the former.
