What anime did you used to love then realized it's awful when you grew up?
It seems OP got caught in the Endless Eight casual filter.
Back to >>>/m/yanimelist with ye.
growing up made me realize I actually feel bad for Koizumi
>watch mostly anime with plots
>realize how absolutely predictable and shit most of it was
>watch mostly SOL moe shows now
Law of Ueki and Death Note. Code Geass on the other hand became even more awesome
Haruhi is an anime only genuinely mature individuals such as myself can fully appreciate. Pretentious teenagers get caught up in taking the philosophical annotations only at face value instead of taking them for what they're mostly supposed to accomplish - being a comment on both the medium and the characters. Likewise manchildren get caught by the cute girls and feelings of moe, which cloud their vision for the underlying depth in the reflection this aspects cast on the characters. The beauty of this anime as a form of entertainment is that all of these people are still able to enjoy it as such. However it's beauty as a piece of art is achieving this while simultaneously seperating those that can appreciate it on a deeper level from those who can't.
OP, why are you such a fucking faggot?
growing up made me realize Koizumi is the best boy
