AoT OVAs aren't great but are better than latest season. What's it about this time?

It's about annie (The blonde chick that tries to kidnap eren). Kinda a backstory of what happened in between the episodes.

Just watched Kimi no na wa, very high rated on MAL. It was almost frustrating though because i never felt like i had any reason to care for any of the characters, yet they kept blasting me with emotional dramatic pieces of music to force me into the mood. Considering FMA:B is #1 on the list i suppose i should just avoid even looking at the top animes list.

Ugh, more like Kimi no naaah.

FMA:B is trash, I agree. But many of top anime deserved their ranking. Gintama deserves 10 for first season, sadly in later seasons quality goes downhill fast and episodes start to make little sense. Best anime ever is Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu, haven't changed my opinion on that matter. That anime has two problems, it is boring and has too many characters which are serious obstacles when it comes to millennial audience who just can't keep check of everything that is going on, especially if it doesn't involve mindless action scenes every five minutes to stimulate their senses. Which is why Attack on Titan is perfect show for such crowd, gory fights and stupid plot are what today audience cares about the most.

Ah i see, i guess i shouldnt be too judgemental then.

Some deserve being up there, some less. I didn't find Kimi no na wa bad, or FMA:B. Definitely not enough to call it trash lol, you guys trying to be edgy here or what is the particular dislike? Genuinely interested, not a FMA:B fanboy here.

Lets go through some of the top scorers on MAL though and my opinion on those:
#1 FMA:B - probably wouldn't put it in first place, rather #30-50
#2 Kimi no na wa - overrated, though not bad
#3 Gintama - slightly overrated. Granted I didn't watch many eps (12), I didn't dig the comedy too much
#4 Stein's gate - deserved
#6 Hunter x Hunter - matter of taste, but for me deserved. Definitely the best shounen fight anime.
#11 Koe no Katachi - I wouldn't put it this high, but it wasn't bad
#17 Code Geass - dunno, but this anime really clicked with me. I'd put it even higher.
#19 Made in Abyss - great first season, would maybe put it even higher. Depends on what is yet to come.
#22 Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - diabetes inducing romance, but I liked it. Liked the soundtrack a lot, deserved place.
#26 Cowboy Bebop - deserved.
#32 Boku no Hero Academia - deserved I guess. Maybe a bit lower.
#39 One Punch Man - deserved, would maybe put it higher than Boku no Hero Academia.
#40 Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann - I'd rank it slightly lower.
#46 Monster - yikes, overrated garbage.
#48 Death Note - probably put it slightly higher than this, at least first season.

Honorable mentions:
#214 Redline - how is this not higher.
#235 Trigun - I'd put this one higher as well.

I thought that FMA:B was outstanding (great soundtrack aswell), Kimi no na wa as said overrated, but still quite good

Gintama deserves 10 for first season

For being the top comedy anime, the first few episodes of gintama were kinda disappointing imo. They're using this song
(click to show/hide)
in the same way US shows use the "background laughter" for comedy scenes/jokes. It's just "ooooh, funny thing happening! Commence funny song, hu ha, they're running awaaaay, get them hooo!". Maybe it's that kind of anime you have to watch some episodes to get "into the flow" but I haven't made it past ep5 yet. Some reference jokes ("Have you been playing tetris all night?") are not bad, should I keep watching it?

Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou on the other hand caught me by surprise, I really dig anime which is practically just a collection of small puns like Plastic Nee San and this one's got some really good humor, can recommend that for some good laughts

I still haven't tried Gintama yet as i heard a lot of it's comedy comes from having knowledge of popular older shows and i still have a lot to watch.

I purposely watch what most consider trash shows as i find the worse they are the funnier. Like Evil or live and Kings game last season. Some of the best unintended comedies trying to be dramas i've seen.

Lets go through some of the top scorers on MAL though and my opinion on those:
#1 FMA:B - probably wouldn't put it in first place, rather #30-50  // isn't that bad, I do agree but nowhere near first place, called it garbage because it is rated 1st, if it was 20th I wouldn't mind honestly
#2 Kimi no na wa - overrated, though not bad // no idea, haven't seen it myself
#3 Gintama - slightly overrated. Granted I didn't watch many eps (12), I didn't dig the comedy too much // well you're Slovenian so... I find Gintama humour to be excellent and that staring scene had me laughing my ass off, not sure which episode, later episodes are about some far reaching stuff that I really don't find that funny
#4 Stein's gate - deserved // i like it as well but... Steins Gate is nerds anime to the bone, main char is crazy scientist with twisted sense of humour and his love interest is super cute, super smart female scientist, jocks just don't get the appeal of any of that
#6 Hunter x Hunter - matter of taste, but for me deserved. Definitely the best shounen fight anime. // fully agree, best shounen and best fighting anime, especially like darker parts but overall package is great except latest arc which is a bit dull, wish there was more of it
#11 Koe no Katachi - I wouldn't put it this high, but it wasn't bad // haven't seen it
#17 Code Geass - dunno, but this anime really clicked with me. I'd put it even higher. // haven't seen it yet, next in line as soon I find some free time
#19 Made in Abyss - great first season, would maybe put it even higher. Depends on what is yet to come. // spot on, has few flaws but in general excellent introduction. Same happened with AoT, and look where we are now...
#22 Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - diabetes inducing romance, but I liked it. Liked the soundtrack a lot, deserved place. // probably will never watch it but you never know, not my type of anime
#26 Cowboy Bebop - deserved. // Top 3 anime any way you put it, best soundtrack
#32 Boku no Hero Academia - deserved I guess. Maybe a bit lower. // ugh, no interest in this kid of stuff
#39 One Punch Man - deserved, would maybe put it higher than Boku no Hero Academia. // guess what, haven't see it, but is top priority, kinda ashamed I haven't seen it yet
#40 Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann - I'd rank it slightly lower.
#46 Monster - yikes, overrated garbage. // you're wrong, but each to his own. For me personally Top 5 anime. Best story and execution in a anime that is granted.
#48 Death Note - probably put it slightly higher than this, at least first season. // overrated a bit, too pretentious for most of the time, later seasons pure garbage, show dies with main character

Honorable mentions:
#214 Redline - how is this not higher. // haven't seen yet, is a movie tho
#235 Trigun - I'd put this one higher as well. // haven't seen yet

Now I should add some other anime and give my take on it but kinda lazy to search for correct spelling on MAL. Give more opinions so I can comment plox.

Actually most of comedy in Gintama is universal, no Japanese specific humour but depictions are part of Japanese culture, not just anime but stuff from Japanese media in last four or five decades. Since I'm not particularly versed in Japanese cultural affairs it is kinda odd but there are titled explanations of every joke although I can't read that fast and get the correct context out of it. You need to stop the play, look on Google if you want to fully get the joke but bare bones of the joke are pretty damn universal.

Well for first two episodes of Gintama I was like wtf am I am watching and why I'm wasting my time... I believe I wrote exactly that somewhere in this thread. Things is, it kinda starts slow and at first jokes feel really forced and story truly doesn't make any sense at beginning but huge BUT it really picks up later and characters open up, most of them are very interesting.

You guys would probably like the episode arc when they get their body parts turned into screwdrivers by aliens who play Monster Hunter Online whole day, so in order to reverse their body parts to original they create characters in Monster Hunter Online (they call it differently in the show) and lose the track of what they are supposed to do, end up playing damn game for weeks without finding aliens. At some point they get in party with greatest player of all time who turns out to be their friend Madao (some weird Japanese acronym for jobless old person or loser) who is like his name says 40 year old something dude who can't find a job who after getting affected by aliens entered the game to search for them and since he has no job became the highest level player on the server :lol:

General story is, feudal Japan where everybody was a samurai was overtaken by aliens from space who brought change and modernized Japan (called Edo in show). All main characters are former samurai who are jobless now so they created Odd Jobs company which is like detective agency but they'll do anything for money and most of the time won't get any money in return. Other characters are also former samurai, some who work as police for aliens, some who are resistance and some criminals.

Alright thanks, I'll give it a try then

Leshma give Redline a shot, it's pretty much a mixture of the F-Zero games, ecstasy and crazy detailed visuals and with that I mean 7 years of production by the madmen of Madhouse. Great to watch with friends
