By doing so, something gets lost in the process, which is why this debate is so passionate not only to fans, but people who work in the industry.

For a long time, I avoided sharing my views on how people view tastes in Anime since it is a controversial issue in the fandom. While some anime bloggers shared their thoughts on the issue, there are many reasons why I do not subscribe to the view there is such thing as good/bad tastes.
