    Default Main stream anime or normal anime ???

    Hallo everyone,

    I was thinking about what sort of anime I like more. So I make a choose between Mainstream anime ( Like naruto, Fairytail, bleach and more) or regular anime ( Like 07-ghost, 11eyes, accel-world, Asu no Yoichi and more). I like regular anime more because they are easyier to follow and they don't have to much episodes. I mean By easyier to follow that the anime not have to much story's around the mainstoryline. So they focus on 1 goal.

    So what is your opion about this topic share it with everyone.

    I really agree on you about the mainstream but for the regular anime, for me.. it makes me feel I want to watch more episodes please make it longer but it just only 25 or 26/ Mostly cliffhanger just end in 13 episodes.

    It depends on the plot also :) what if the plot is amazing so the episodes will not be 13 it's more than on it and also the plot is so short but the anime ends in cool and wonderful, you don't need to extend it.

    ~(my opinion)

    Both anime's are good, tho some mainstream animes are overrated in some way. Either way, it's up to the viewer to choose which one he/she likes.

    But I'm more in the non-mainstream one's :3

    Yes I can agree that both of them are great, but I guess for me it just depends on your mood and time. Because if you have so much free time then you go into the mainstream ones like Naruto or one piece which has so many episodes, but if you just want to kill some time then normal anime with a few episodes are the ones for you

    You have the wrong understanding of mainstream. When you said mainstream, it doesn't have to be have lots of episode but it is a story where a lot of people give praise to the point that it is sickening. Beside from what given here as example, Sword Art Online, No Game No Life, Kiseijuu, and Psycho-Pass fit to the definition of mainstream.

    Well to the topic, as long as it has a factor that it can be enjoyable for me, then it is enjoyable but if it is good? That's a subjective opinion. I think Sword Art Online is a terrible one but I do think that NGNL is a great show despite both are otaku-pandering show.

    I think a better title would be 'Long Running Anime or Short Running Anime?'

    Aren't the words normal and mainstream synonymous?

    Mainstream or regular? Very poor choice of words.

    To answer the question, i tend to prefer smaller studios actually trying to do something interesting in anime and hate mainstream crap like Naruto.

    I favor Short-Running animes than the long ones because I get easily bored when watching it. Plus, in short ones, there's seasons that you wait for, which makes you excited for it to come out. But it really just depends on how good that anime is.

    What is wrong with Mainstream and Normal?
    why rank them like that,
    seriouslee
    there are tons of hidden gems out there that suits your style that can beat
    a lot of mainstreams / overrated
    you just need to watch and watch and watch not just to watch those people seem to like.

    The question's kinda an interesting one. I've seen some good points in the previous posts. As iterated before, I think mainstream would equal 'hype level'. If I find that an anime is overhyped (for instance, seeing it ALL OVER MY TUMBLR DASHBOARD), I'll likely give it a pass unless there's something in the associated posts that catches my eye. IMO, I'd rather find an unearthed gem of an anime that's really underrated than hop on a hype train prematurely. But that's just me.

    I like regular anime because it seems as if the mainstream animes are to drawn out around one certain goal that takes them years to get to. I mean, I get it, it shows that the characters have an incredible amount of determination to get to their main goal. Their determination makes them much stronger than regular characters, but if you can't get your character to their goal in under a hundred episodes, then what's the point? Most of the time the characters end up right where they started at least once, but ultimately I don't think it's worth the effort to animate such a long storyline.
