Main Public Medium Ignorance Discussion

A lot of anime bloggers outright refuse to review anime for children for reasons unknown, assuming that they are for kids and no one else. This is despite that there are gems among them (Gundam Build Fighters is a prime example). I really wish that this practice end soon.

If I find a discussion of this concept in a work, can I put it in the main trope list, or must it go on the YMMV tab? I ask because I read these two exchanges in Aunt Dimity and the Lost Prince:

Lori: I must admit that I didn't have Bree pegged as a romance fan.
Dimity: A well-written book is a well-written book, regardless of the label a publisher slaps on it, and Lark Landing happens to be an extremely well-written book.

Lori: How stupid can I be, Dimity? Bree tried to tell me about Felix Chesterton's writing, but I didn't listen. I assumed he wrote sentimental stories for teenagers.
Dimity: Wrong again.

Honestly, the anime section has too much cock sucking towards those two particular Gainax shows, since it reeks of hypocrisy. TTGL might not be "popular" to non anime watchers, but it's pretty much the go-to for Super Robot same with Evangelion, that somehow the only Super Robot they watch are those two.

I agree. It seems to be implying that none of the more well known shows have any depths to it.

So NASCAR racing isn't like that? :D

Yes it is. And the fans are all literally brain dead, and killing a bunch of them would only count as 25 cents of damage. Because rednecks are Acceptable Targets.

Could someone organize the Troper Tales by media (Anime, Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Fandom, Literature, Music), maybe? Might make it a little nicer to read through.

The problem is that several of the Tales are for multiple media.

Done. The ones that are for multiple media are in "other." If you can think of any other categories feel free to add them.

I'm surprised there's no musical examples, as this article should also cover this area in particular. I can bring one, about Heavy Metal, though people with knowledge about other musical genres may collaborate in making a full paragraph.

I once read a Captain America comic in which Cap was introduced to modern music, and he and Tony Stark had to shout to each other over the noise, because modern music is, of course, very, very loud.

The group was meant to be Radiohead. Yes, that Radiohead.

About heavy metal, it's even worse here: (Europe) it's pure noise without any sense and it is satanic. Yes, always, for 75% of people. Not only I recently discovered that not every black metal band is convinced by their own lyrics, but that there is also Heavy Mithril, Folkloric metal, symphonic, and could you believe it, Christian metal. Even Alice Cooper is christian to begin with; I didn't guessed this, judging from his apparition in Wayne's World.
