Old-school anime fan here. Why do so many people hate Death Note? It is one of the few good animes made after 2000.
I don't see much Death Note hating at all, he's widely accepted as a good series.
Some people will bitch about it but it's mostly "edgy is always bad" shitposters or contrarians that hate anything that's mainstream/liked by normies.
The second half had mixed reception especially when L died and had the viewers deal with someone who pretty much Discount Bargain Bin L than someone who is his own character.
Yeah the first half was really great but sometimes it's understandable when people don't view it much in a good light when it doesn't end on a positive note.
the final confrontation was cool though
Because instead of focusing on psychological and philosophical impacts we get convoluted situations, which to be fair is fitting for the age of the main characters and the series' target audience.
I hated it because it had such great potential that it would never live up to.
For me the show started getting less interesting when they started dealing with the Yotsuba corporation. I mainly attribute it to how suddenly everything is solved via tech than hard detective work that was shown before Light and Misa lost their memories.
That said, I did find the Keikaku doori scene pretty great desptie how fucking ridiculous the semantics of his plan can be.
This is probably bait, what with the whole "one good animes after 2000", but I've nothing better to do so have a reply.
It's a decent show, and certainly memorable, but it suffers from the plot sometimes feeling quite contrived and sometimes falling apart when examined closer. It also carries the unfortunate burden of being very popular amongst the stereotypical weeaboo, who tend to treat it like it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. While you shouldn't judge a show by its fans, it has led to /a/ having quite a harsh knee-jerk reaction when it's compared to other shows that /a/ prefers.
tl;dr Show is good but has its problems, and certainly isn't as incredible as some make it out to be.
I just think the Yosuba corp took too long, they spent an entire volume on that.
Also the entire series turns to shit once you realize that:
all could've been prevented if Light wasn't such a fucking idiot, everything is a plot convenience in the sense
Because it was the overhyped show like SnK, Kill la Kill, One Punch Man, SAO.... that was nothing like those but was very good with interesting plot and memorable characters. When L died it divided the fanbase and some begin to hate that because they got attached to him.
Also, it became very popular so it's enough to be hated.
This, this is why most of /a/ are being hipsters and hating OPM.
Honestly, the only reason I'm not interested in Daiz - the anime is because it's too popular and all the entry level cringeworthy kids on the net using OPM references just put me off.
What if I think it was a fairly mid tier show last year? I like the webcomic and manga, but I don't even think the anime was that good.
I thought rokka no sales was a better action show
