On the surface Abyss looks like it's going to be for kids, with it's chibi like characters and bright color pallets. Abyss, a Seinen series is for my age group mind you but I … Continue reading The Salty Anime Challenge Day 21: An anime that you thought you’d hate (due to genre/tropes), but actually love.
Sakura Haruno is useless Sakura Haruno or Sakura Uchiha is one of the most hated anime characters. Being in a shonen series that focuses on battle, Sakura is "useless" in battle early in the series. However, in Naruto strength isn't the only thing that matters (at least early in the series).

Kamidere Their are many different dere types in anime but my least favorite has to be Kamidere. It's an anime archetype for characters with god complexes. The word is derived from the combination of Kami (which means god) and dere(which means loving or sweet). The dere isn't limited to just love of a particular person … Continue reading The Salty Anime Challenge Day 19: Least favorite -dere character
This was the hardest challenge to do. Unpopular anime generally don't make a lot of attention, and don't warrant my attention. However, I have found one that is unpopular and deserves to be.

To be honest I usually avoid OP's and ED's. Basically, I skip OP's and turn off the episode before the ED come on. The favorite OP I remember from my childhood was the old Dragon Ball Z opening and the original Pokemon OP. I did also like many of the early Naruto OP's. However, one … Continue reading The Salty Anime Challenge Day 16: Least favorite OP or ED
In terms of story, characters, animation, voice acting, etc… what is something that you find yourself always avoiding. In anime everything can take away from a anime being good. Story is probably the most important aspect of a good anime , however I won't get to enjoy that story if the animation is terrible. I … Continue reading The Salty Anime Challenge Day 15: what is something that you find yourself always avoiding
I should probably pick Detective Conan, which is currently on it's 908th episode and has been in production January 8th, 1996. I use to watch this series but I lost interest years ago. I won't pick, One Piece because while it's long, I think it's as long as it needs to be. One Piece has … Continue reading The Salty Anime Day 14: An anime that shouldn’t have been as long as it was
