The explosion around Demon Slayer is baffling. What in gods name would make people like this show? I don't understand. Someone tell me because, I'm upset over this. So many good more deserving anime and yet Demon Slayer gets the boost? Why? Chainsaw Man one of the most complex best written manga in SJ doesn't have one. So does Demon Slayer have such popularity? Tell me what this manga does to justify these massive hype sales?

Well, being more complex doesn't mean good, for one.

Years ago, deep and complex plot maybe applauded as good thing, but nowadays people would just say authors are being pretentious if they start doing 2deep2complex plot. It's better to write something that everyone can enjoy.

Or yea, maybe everyone in Japan just went to watch the movie to purposely troll anime fanbase that think KnY is overrated. Who knows.

Chainsaw Man is complex?
Then, what is Tenjo Tenge?

I dislike the boar and the coward, but practically everything else is great.

I don't mind a deep and complex plot if it's done well. Which only happens rarely.

In SA2, it's Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow.

It's mainly the animes "fault" that the manga and DS as a whole exploded. Before the animation, manga was... I wouldn't call it unsuccessful, but it was... just "there". Why is it successful? Well, it's simply a enjoyable watch/read. What more do people want? It's not like most anime make you think about life and ask you philosophical questions or challenge you in any way. It's simply enjoyable to watch and read. And the anime pathed the way for it.

Why are people so against it anyways? Does it hurt some edgy feelings when the "normies" and "casual" as some here love to call them (lmao) make something successful they don't like?
