Then it further proves the masses are made up of mostly stupid people. I've seen lighthearted/super fun happy shows before and get their charm....this was just shit.
To be honest, I've never watched the show in total, but I will admit that I've watched shows that did not work at all for me, that proved popular enough to have sequels. So we are not far apart in that belief you mention.
Right now, I have to also admit, that I am watching Space Dandy. I think it is, as a rated show, crap. But otherwise, it is strangely entertaining. Almost in a Terry Gilliam film sort of way. It's stupidity almost is an appeal. The absurdity adds to that and crassness more so.
Mind you, it also has one of the best soundtracks going for an anime this season as well. Kill La Kill is fairly similar but not so Gilliam.
Also, I have to say, Evangelion's popularity does not affect me. I like it but found it lacking in so many ways. It really was, to me at least, a well animated series that evokes thoughts of Twin Peaks. A show that was ultimately meaningless and heavily stylized while promising depth that was never there not intended.
