To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Sora yori mo Tooi Basho. The drama is extremely forced, and without a solid grasp of melodrama most of the writing will go over a typical viewers head. There's also Shirase's endless weeping, which is deftly woven into her characterisation- her personal philosophy draws heavily from Mexican soap operas, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these tears, to realise that they're not just sad- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Yorimoi truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Hinata's existential catchphrase "piss off", which itself is a cryptic reference to the act of urination. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Jukki Hanada's genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them.
And yes, by the way, i DO have an Antarctica tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the penguins' eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid.
