>>100727262>Because you can’t really tell the quality of a show from a preview that doesn’t even show episode footage?
They gave us a preview on what to expect. If they believe that the preview doesn't do justice they should come out and say it. Presenting a new and better one if they have the time would also be good.
I know the saying "don't judge a book by it's cover", but time and thought are valuable. If one presents something that is perceived as an offense to something that someone holds dear, they are not only going to spend no time in investing attention to the episodes, but they are going to now invest time in expressing their disdain. It doesn't help when you have people on Twitter being asinine and/or assholes about it to not only stoke the rage of the haters, but also piss off more people who might've otherwise stayed neutral.
Digression aside, first impressions are important for a reason. The average consumer only has so much attention to give, and when they feel attacked, the attention is going to be directed where the creators don't want it to be: at their perceived lack of quality.>Eh, I think that’ll just go in one ear out the other when it comes to the haters.
As much as I think the controversy is being misrepresented or misinterpreted by many in the animation industry and some journalists, I know the defenders have some reasons to feel indignant. The haters don't help things at all, and they show how bad some consumers can get. They also convolute and distort the overall message. A lot of controversies these days are a matter of each side attacking the extremists of the other.
It's why I hate Twitter. Social media in general does a bit too well in proliferating outrage, but Twitter's 280 character limit seems to make it really hard to say anything nuanced and balanced, or at least discourages it. Pic related seems like a level-headed person.
I'm just tired of these online controversies being treated as black and white crusades.
