Re: Is It Wrong To Make Assumptions About People From Their Tastes?
So I visited an anime blog today and read half of a post, and I thought it was interesting and here’s some crap about it.
In the post linked above, froggykun talks about making ASSumptions about other anime fans based on their taste in anime, and claims that it’s okay to do so. Of course, I already knew that. Anime is a medium for all sorts of genres, and you have your moe group and you have your anime blogger group and you have me, the lone, brave soul who’s been bridging the gap between the masses and the intellectuals since 2009.
But I really don’t care about that, because this post is an excuse to list off my favorite anime and then make judgmental statements about myself based on that list.
My Favorite Anime (4-9 not really in any order)
- Eureka Seven
- Welcome to the NHK!
- Seto no Hanayome
- Dennou Coil
- Alien Nine
You can immediately tell that I am a man of varied and intricate tastes. While I did rank Bakuman a measly 2, you full well understand that it was a shitty show that never should have seen the light of day. Furthermore, because you are quite sharp, you realize that the manga it was based off of degenerated into a pile of steaming crap that still made money because the Death Note guys were on it and everything they touch becomes gold. In this case, it became solid gold shit that had the smell and consistency of feces, but all the fanboys ended up partaking in the consumption of such disgusting material regardless.
However, I am not quick to judge. Both seasons of Code Geass rank at 9, because they were brilliant seasons that kept up my interest, no matter what other people said. Furthermore, I also put such popular shows as Toradora!, Steins;Gate, and Clannad ~After Story~ up in the 8 to 9 category because they were interesting and engaging shows. This shows my magnanimity and my willingness to let bygones be bygones. In short, I’m a nice person because I watch popular anime and like it.
But go ahead – count the 10s. Three of them. Nichijou, Eureka Seven, and Welcome to the NHK! rank at 10 out of 10. This shows my extremely high standards, something the freshman class discovered first-hand when I made huge red marks on their physics homework, taking off points for everything from algebra mistakes to math errors to erroneous numbers, because people need to check their algebra, man. Then they go off on a tangent and draw some stupid conclusion that they can’t do physics and that their dumb. Well, your not dumb, stupid!! The only thing completely and utterly retarded and hopeless is your resolve, and if you give up before you even start and ask me during tutoring hours about all the problems before thinking, of course you’re not going to get an A in the class!
Man wtf im so angr
