The anime section

As I look upon the anime section, I see complaining, hatred, ideas I dislike, and general things that drive me crazy.
And I actually love the anime section, almost as much as I love the blogs. Sure, I wish we had more diversity in opinions and ideas. (Serebii's anime section, for example, has more variety. It also has more trolling, but that's beside the point. It's still a good section.) Sure, some people harp on the same things over and over again even when it's not even relevant anymore.
But the negativity forced me to see the anime from different perspectives. I wouldn't have liked Iris is it wasn't for Hellion's discussions of her and her skills - he made me realize that at the time, she was a bad trainer. Because of Hellion, Iris became accessible to me, and I eventually grew to like her. Seeing people criticize BW helped me to think critically, and in turn helped me to like BW, AG, OS, and even DP a lot more.
And aside from the debates and opinions, the anime section has amazing people. I've met some of my best friends there, including @CommanderPigg; @Meron;
@Yoshi-san;(I'm pretty sure we met through one of Iteru's blogs.) @Fokko; @Musashi; @Likeitornot.; @Froakie; @garrison-san; @Gotpika; and many others, who in turn introduced me to many other people I consider my closest friends. I'm so glad to have met them all, and it's all because of the anime section.
@Shinneth;'s opinions are pretty much the polar opposite of mine. But I like to think we're friends! Because despite the different opinions we have (and even if I disagree, she does bring up well-written and thoughtful points), she is a fantastic person and she's very fun to talk to.
The anime section may spew hate and bile, but the people there are wonderful, and the discussions (usually) make me happy. I'm so glad to have such a great section with brilliant and fun people.
Hahaha just kidding I hate you all. Bring back Misty and Brock, anime sucks! Smell ya later, losers.
