Top 10 Cartoons I Like That Everyone Else Hates

Originally aired February 19, 2012. I still like this list and don't regret making it--don't know if the same is true for its opposite number, but we'll get to that when we get to it.

  2. The 2 cartoons/animes I know I like that everyone hate are Gundam SEED and Gundam SEED Destiny. They're my 2 favorite animes of all time but I think GS and GSD are so overhated by Gundam fans due to the reused stock footage, beamspam, and terrible characters such as Shinn Asuka and Kira "Jesus" Yamato.
    I like them because:
    #1 Good Mecha Designs (such as the Strike Freedom Gundam, Blitz Gundam, and the GINN)
    #2 the so-bad-it's-good Voice acting in the Ocean dub (where Athrun sounds like some Jewish stereotype, Heine sounds like some 40-something-year-old chain-smoker while he's supposed to be 21 or so, etc.)
    #3 The characters are interesting (My favorites being Lunamaria, Lacus, Kira, Shinn, and Heine [the side character who I think is one of the few positive bisexual characters in animated TV shows])
    #4 The intro themes
    #5 They touch on issues such as racism (or in the 2 series' case, geneism), LGBT rights (Yzak X Dearka and maybe Miguel X Heine), and pacifism.
    The only bad things (in my opinion) about the 2 series are Flay Allster, Meer Campbell, and the original 4th opening theme for GSD.

  3. Actually, if you watched the Japanese Version of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters, you'd figure out that Dark Yugi wasn't overpowered. He was actually quite rash in his plays, and mostly got by with Yugi's assistance.
