    It's just an urban legend on Japan

    Comparable to the old wive's tale that you'll grow hair on your palms if you masturbate

    There's this one part in One Piece where a dude does the "see a pretty lady and get a bloody nose" gag.

    And then they spent an episode or two making it a Serious Medical Drama where this man is losing too much blood and needs a transplant but no one with his blood type will donate and oh no!

    He finally got to see a mermaid.

    It literally almost killed him.

    Just once through

    I thought maybe you could jack up the ending by playing through a second time
    since if you know the password to the men's room in advance you never have to punch out Player 247

    But nah

    I've only seen one episode of one piece but it was basically a 22 minute "HAHA TRANGENDERS" joke

    It was most definitely not "alright"

    It turns out that if you make a visually stunning and stylish anime with actual themes and interesting narrative arcs that aren't hampered by complete shit pacing

    I will love it!

    The first One Piece episode I ever watched ended with a cliffhanger where the characters were almost killed when their ship was in the path of an oncoming SEA TRAIN

    I've loved it ever since

    Pretty sure I know what you're talking about, and yeah there was an unfortunate thing there. Thankfully brief but it was shitty.

    On the plus side there have been trans-positive stuff too, including a whole thing where the protagonist is trapped in this big prison and finds this whole hidden community of prisoners there dedicated to equality.

    Impel Down arc.

    Luffy busts into the big government prison to try and save his brother. He meets up with a dude who is visually inspired by Tim Curry in Rocky Horror, who has built a hidden community of prisoners where being yourself is emphasized and the Tim Curry dude has the power to change a person's gender so he helps people be the way they wanna be and the whole thing is portrayed as being fun and good and wonderful and then they all work together to bust out.

    I've never seen Love Hina, is it really that bad?

    I always assumed it was just typical harem stuff which is generally pretty tame.

    I really enjoyed Love Hina when it first came out and I was 15 or 16 or something.

    Then recently I decided to look back on it and watch it with my wife. It was very very embarrassing when I realized I didn't like it when I was 16 because it was quality and that somehow I had convinced myself otherwise.

    No I don't.

    That's about the number of boners my puberty crazed self popped per episode. And about the number of times you'll laugh per watch through of the whole series.

    From what I remember the Manga is a little better written.

    No I don't.

    Love Hina is the essence of awful fanservice distilled into its purest form

    There is no human element, no emotion, no personality, just relentless slavish devotion to the worst harem tropes and fanservice

    It is so bad

    Negima has a ton of fanservice.

    But at the same time it has some solid humor, likeable characters, decent storytelling, good art, good action, and a lot of good female characters(once you get past the fanservice).

    It's pretty good, IMO.
