I would encourage people to stop taking criticism of a series they enjoy so seriously it prevents constructive discussion on how to improve. While it can be fun to bash a poorly done series with a group of friends but most of the time you feel like the time you invested in that series, that you want it back. My critcism does come across as strong because of who I am but I feel it can lead to improvement. It's best you take a look at this video from gamespot.
It will make you rethink your current disposition towards anything you enjoy. While this seems negative it can be interpreted in a positive manner and you may think differently on series you have previously been really harsh about and think this particular section of the story wasn't so bad after all if I compare it to this anime. Just some food for thought for anyone reading this.
Remember be rational not loyal and admiration is the furthest thing from the truth. Enjoy something by all means but don't feel so attached to it that you take personal offense when someone criticises something you enjoy.
Top 5 liked characters that others hate (according to this site)
1st: Akainu from One piece (seriously a guy does his job and is hated for it Ace brought his own death upon himself by being extremely selfish.)
2nd: King Bradley from FMA (Have no idea why people hate someone so badass?)
3rd: Squealer from Shin Sekai Yori (I understand you hate what he has done but how can you not like him as a superb villain?)
4th: Masahito Date from Btooom! ( I actually found him really amusing shame that evil=hate)
5th: Aleister Crowley from the to aru series (This guy is so mysterious and awesome. He is hanging upside down the whole time in tube while running a city guess people don't like how cold hearted he can be?)
Top 5 characters I despise that others love (according to this site)
1st: Natsu Dragneel from Fairy Tail (A luffy wannabe without any development and can't win a fight without the power of love to save his sorry behind.)
2nd: Shu Ouma from Guilty Crown (I have so much hate for this character as someone who fails on nearly every level to have a likable trait. I have read/watched entire series of books, tv shows, films, games, manga, light novels and anime. I still have yet to find a more dislikable MC. I have debated this many times with fans of the series and we are going to have to agree to disagree regarding him.)
3rd: Kirito from Sword art Online EDIT: Is now replaced with Mako from Kill la Kill (I was wrong about Kirito as it has now been revealed he is actually bisexual adding a whole new layer of complexity to his character that wasn't shown before. Now that Kirito can date Klein and show he is just generally a loving human being to any gender it shows he is just a nice young man. I apologise for my earlier mistakes regarding Kirito as it takes a real man to look prettier than all the girls in his harem.)
4th: Gon Freecss from Hunter X Hunter (Great series but Gon isn't so great I mean why is such a simpleton the main character when you actually need a brain to be good in this series?)
5th: Rika Shiguma Boku wa tomodachi ga sukunai (She gained more poularity in the latest season but I actually prefered her in the first now she is a train wreck of a personality not knowing herself who she wants to be.)
