Mr. Flawfinder looks at a few popular products that people have accused of being poorly written, and yet they're massively popular.
Because bad is subjective and more often than not the result of bad translation.

I guess I'll reply to some comments on here. Of the stuff I put on the post, I like Clannad alright (although I prefer the movie) and I love Miyazaki's stuff.

Bullshit. You haven't seen everything else. Not even ****ing close. Congratulations: you've just completely evaluated all of your opinions.
You obviously did not read my comment properly. I said "of the stuff I put on the post". And I have seen everything I put on there from Simoun to Sword Art Online to Deadman Wonerland.
