Scientifically speaking, what are the psychological reasons that explain why we end up hating fairly enjoyable but massively popular shows?
A lot of people got into anime through them and they feel embarrassed looking back at how cringey they used to act about it. So they start lashing out at those series hoping to erase it from their minds.
Cause some people can see through Aniplex whole marketing gimmicks and that a lot of these shows just aren't actually very good or at least not nearly as good as their legions of half retarded teenage fans will insist.
That still won't stop /a/ from defending them to the death now here just to disagree with the OP. Frankly this is why I never do OPs so I can just sort of lurk in the shadows and only have a 50/50 chance of everybody vehemently disagreeing with me in order to follow the rules of /a/ as opposed to the 100% chance that comes with being the OP of a thread.
Until the spell broke with the last couple episodes many venues were ready to declare it the flat out show of the year if not the greatest show of all time. Shit was fucking crazy to witness and just another example of how far gone today's fanbase is that they got played by A-1 yet again like they did in such great numbers. You'd really think they'd have noticed the pattern by now.
As ready to disagree for the sake of disagreeing as ever shitposting guy. I mean fuck unless you can come up with any other better reason it seems like a plausible one to me. I mean the /a/ hates anything popular is a decent one too.
A decent followup with a context-less reaction image post not actually quoting anybody or anything but still not quite feeling the textbook /a/ motions yet.
Honestly this for a lot of it. All the shows on that list range from mediocre to flat-out bad but the material alone is nowhere near heinous enough to earn the level of vitriol they get. They're hated because their fans are obnoxious and some people either don't want to be associated with them or they want to keep them off the board because they poison discussion But when a genuinely shitty anime is unpopular, no one cares if it gets posted. It's just a byproduct of self-moderation.
