Am I seriously the on,ynone nlt concerned about Super's anime doing the impossible like SSBKKxwhatever or who's stronger than who? Whether the manga is better than the anime? What the movies mean or even how Broly will play out? Yes, I'll attest that Super's writing isn't the best on either front; the animation can be ATROCIOUS, but so could Z's and even OGDB's.

Yes the writing doesn't make a lot of sense and there's no excuse for that, but Dragon Ball has always been known for pulling stupider s*** than what Super has done. Super isn't a matter of what makes sense, but what's FUN! Super Saiyan God and it's forms are FUN! The Gods and Angels are FUN! Freiza going gold is FUN! I won't say this stuff is perfect, but for bette or worse it's still a fun watch or read. Water for genuine enjoyment or taking the piss out of the bad.

Not all of us are entertained just by ignoring a fictional work's flaws, though.

Pretty much what has been said.

The older you get, the higher your standards. The older you get, the more you notice and analyse things.
The more you analyse things, the more you see problems.
Until it gets to a point where the multitude of problems start to bother you.

When’s flaws are glaring you in the face, some can’t enjoy the work to the fullest, if at all. Some can, and good for them, but it doesn’t mean everyone can.

In addition with how OBSESSED this fan base is with canon, what did you expect?
Don't play just to win, play for the fun of it.

Nah Dragon Ball was never this bad until the Buu Saga. 'Fun' doesn't outweigh bad plot. Or Bleach would be one of the GOAT anime.

The other day i saw people criticize SAO ordinal scale for not being more like ghost in the shell

A lot of people seem to legitimately forget that the primary purpose of entertainment is to entertain, this is why people argue about whether or not games are art and snobs look down on video games (or movies sometimes), they forgot that they're supposed to enjoy things and that this isn't english class.
