    Both are good but neither are masterpieces. Evangelion suffers from massive massive budget issues, thrown at the wall symbolism, and really unlikeable characters. It does have good ideas in being a deconstruction of the super robot genre, but it's just not that great.

    Cowboy Bebop has individual stand out episodes, like the Mushroom and the Lobster episodes, but the entire plot can be covered in about 4 episodes total, and it kind of feels as though the whole thing lacks a real point.

    I was being silly; saw your point from the start.

    1920 x 1080 is a terrible resolution for games, especially text heavy ones.

    Individual cats are ok, but as a species they are kind of jerks.

    > I never have, and likely never will understand the urge to listen to music All The Time. I forget music is a thing constantly. I recognize the value as an art, and I know it means a ton to a lot of people. For whatever reason, I have never had any attachment to it. Oh, and I can't focus when music is playing. Drives me nuts. (Yes, even instrumental stuff!)

    I'm not sure how (un)popular is this, but I'm gonna chime in anyway.

    > I don't understand the charm of furry/anthropomorphism. I never liked it. I don't really have a problem with it, but some people just went overboard to love such stuff that makes me wonder, why though ...

    same tbh. easier to see and appreciate everything within your sight's range over getting blindsided.
    to add to that, i dont really get all the need for a huge monitor just for gaming. maybe bc im a casual pleb who doesnt care about every blown up hd pixel on screen but other than for work purposes, a regular size monitor is just as good as any other. plus stuff like compact living spaces and eye health etc.

    also those classic bulky type of keyboards suck. i type 2x slower on that thing and i often feel like im not even pressing the key hard enough for a response no matter how soft and easy the keys are, it throws me off so bad.

    What exactly makes a furry though? I loved classic Sonic and Crash Bandicoot. I think the animal races in the Zelda games are cool. Is that furry or am I thinking of something different? I'm not quite sure honestly.

    Edit: sorry for the typo. Did this on mobile with autocorrect.

    I may not be too qualified to comment on that, pony avatar and the like, but the threshold probably lays around the moment a person starts wearing ears, tail or a fursuit. Not that I mind much in that regard, anyway.

    For me, when the face is deformed into an animal face (maybe, plus furs and other animal features). Animal ears and tails are okay. But I rarely get an attachment to them than a fully human character.

    Regarding sonic and friends tho, I'm kinda biased but they're fine maybe because it's a part of my childhood, and I used to be a big fan of sonic when I was little. Until I realized that I actually like an agile character in general, not just sonic.

    My unpopular opinions:
    1) Fate series are trash; it was a good, decent series till Fate Zero, later than that it became an unnecessary fanservice for lolicons, and thirsty weebs who have no taste. Adding more content to it never made it any better, it just made it hella worse. They should've just end it after Fate Zero.

    2) Marvel movies are overrated. I will never understand the hype over them.

    3) You don't have to like your family members just because they are blood related; they can be the worst people you wish you can cut ties with.

    4) Not. Everything. Goes. Well. With. Cheesecake!! Classics. Are. Better. Off. As. Classics!! I am getting sick of some people turning a good dessert into another cheesecake! I love cheesecake, but, there is a fine line between being creative, and being a waster!

    Seconded. Depending on one's circumstances, cutting the people in question out of your life might be difficult, but certainly nobody has an obligation to like someone. You don't have a choice in the matter as to who ends up as your family, so you don't have to like.

    Um fate started as porn you know. And my unpopular opinion, im glad Zero was made non canon, and gen urobuchi is one of animes worst writers. Even zero has sakura having bugs burrowing through her lady bits.

    @trouble time I know. When I said decent, I didn't mean as a non-porno stuff, I meant the story was decent enough for me to get interested. But, the more they keep expanding the series, the cringier it became, and the more they lack plots. They made alot of Fate Stay Night remakes which it shows that they are running out of ideas, but their art styles, CGI advanced enough to catch many fans eyes. And recently, it went down to the point that they made it as a cooking series, are you for real? Fate series now became one of the cringiest animes I can think of.
    EDIT: And don't get me started with Ilya Prism series!!
    I hope I didn't offend anyone.

    My next unpopular opinion, prisma illya is the best entry in the fate series. Its the only one where they can both keep their magic rules consistent and where the protagonist isnt given the absolute strongest ability from the get go.

    The reason i mentioned it was porn was cause the first post complained about fanservice which is the entire reason the series even exists.

    Also did you never see carnival phantasm, type moon's been the way it is forever.
