Can someone tell me why OPM is topping this list. I mean, I love both the manga and the anime adaptation but how did an anime with currently only 11 episodes get more positive mainstream attention than popular shows like Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones?
>>
>>134913972
It appeals to normalfags as well as weebs.
>>
>>134913972
Same way that Rick and Morty is at number 5. /v/irgins who think anything other than 10/10 is shit.

it appeals to the reddit crowd desu

No, they'll stay here making threads asking when will Japan save anime like it did with OPM.
>>
>>134914291
They've run for too long and thus their flaws can be seen, which leads to lower scores. OPM is still hot and airing.
>>
>>134913972
The Sopranos should be number 1
>>
>>134914325
no because there's always some new normie anime to fawn over

>>134914632
That's probably true but what about snk? The hype for season 2 is huge and I personally think it appeals more to normalfags than OPM does.
>>
>>134914141
fundamentally correct.
>>
>>134914771
it's not about appealing to normies, it's about appealing to reddit, which OPM does perfectly

Wait til S2 is airing and it'll probably be rated highly. S1 probably got dragged down a bit and they can't easily overcome the lower scores, while OPM has a clean slate
>>
>>134914710
Yeah, it really should. And if anyone doesn't think the ending was perfect, they can suck a dick.

OPM is a genre deconstruction because unlike other popular shonen manga/anime, which are focusing about a character who gets stronger as the series progresses, OPM focuses about a character who is infinitely strong from the beginning.

I'm not that autist who spouted "genre deconstruction" unironically. But I can say that OPM delves more than just plain fighting and monster-of-the-week formula, although that may not be very obvious in the anime adaptation considering how much Madhouse glorifies the fight scenes.

>Shouldn't that be boring since he will beat anything easily?
Saitama being able to one-shot everything actually set up a scenario about how unfulfilling life would turn out if one has actually attained the epitome of strenght. There are no more challenge nor crisis to be had, especially as an aspiring hero. The story pretty much portrays how Saitama would deal with that scenario. While at the antagonist's side of story, it portrays how would it feel to against a hero who is practically undefeatable; the shame, the disgrace, and the futility of their struggle. It's actually quite interesting premise if you manage to see beyond the one punch gag.

They saw all the shounen tropes when they were kids and are probably bored of it. I tried to watch fucking WORLD TRIGGER or whatever that shit is now and it's just so banal and old, reusing the same shit Naruto and Bleach did back in the day. You can only take so much shounen in your life.

>>
>>134917027
So in other words, /a/, reddit, MAL, ANN, and whatever other western anime-focused site just doesn't know shit about anime, just as usual.
>>
Dropped OPM after ep 1. Kept downloading until ep 6, but never brought myself to keep watching.

Deleted the files.
>>
I like OPM because it's a fun show and seems to make /a/ legit mad that it's a well received show that doesn't have to be creepy edgy or by some meme director in order to do well. Like people are legit mad that this show can be enjoyed by every day people, the anime fanbase is that fucking petty

That's what makes them TV shows.

I'm not going to say it was a masterpiece, but it was nowhere near that bad. It was an incredibly decent show. It always seems like hype brings out either people who thrust it onto a hyperbolic pedestal of "this is a work of art" or the even more annoying crowd of contrarian idiots who just drop garbage out of their mouths like someone wants to hear their opinion.

OP can't think for himself, what a faggot.

I want /v to leave

>>134917179
You know jackshit of why /a/ hates OPM. It's not because the show itself, it's because all of the hike in shitposting by newfags and falseflagging conspiracy by vengeful trollsquad of reddit and /v/ combined.

/a/ actually likes OPM before it becomes anime.

on anime, autists also getting mad that it got too popular and lowering it from bitterness

it became a meme to say it was one of the greatest shows ever, because it flew past everyone's radar. It got shite ratings. It was this hidden jem that people missed out on.

but honestly it's still pretty good. And yeah I sort of found the first two seasons hard to sit through, mainly because it just looks so dated. But if you really can't stand nignogs nig nogging then yeah it probably isn't for you.
