Default Something that pisses me off about Anime

"In other words..."

They spend 5 min overly explaining something, then explain it again in slightly simpler words. There has never been a time where I didnt understand the first time.

For example: There's 2 soul in the world: Good, and bad. *shows diagram* In other words, the world is filled with good and bad souls.

Naruto would be a prime example of this, my god the Zabuza saga. I can't.

Yeah, it is not just anime, plenty of Western shows and video games do this as well.

i like it when its used for comedic effect. like excalibur explaining his whole long legend and then saying in other words, if you don't get it you're stupid.

If so I fucking HATE animes that have a girl main character that abuses the guy she likes by hitting him (with a hammer, punching him across the room, or in Inuyasha the 'sit' command). It fucking annoys the SHIT out of me if someone did that to me constantly I'd throw them off of a cliff.

And also this happens in anything by Rumiko Takashi which is why I mostly can't like most of her crap characters. Also why I dislike Edward x Winry.

We share the same sentiments me dear, that's precisely why I hate Nami from One Piece and Sakura from Naruto. However I think I developed some sort of tolerance for Winry, but more or less I dislike that kind of thing.

I think that kind of Tsundere is appealing to the Japanese audience just like how big-breasted pathetically in-love Yamato Nadeshikos are a staple.

Is this a thread about what you dislike about anime? Well since it's been so long since I became active in anime I had lost most of my negative feelings. But probably what pisses me off most are:

1. When a lot of wonderfully designed girls are in the anime but the most we get from them are catfights, informed abilities or they will just be rescued by the male characters. Or worse, they constantly nag the main hero and hit him when they go tsundere. They never have awesome moments. I'd rather have one or two awesome female characters, or girls in passive but character-driven roles than a truckload of faux action girls.

2. Awesome, beautiful, powerful girls becoming a harem of a lame hero. The sin of most harem animes. I'm talking to you Emiyo Shirou. (IMO I think he sucks as a love interest.)

Most of my rant is about the fandom itself, but it's not for this thread.

The harem thing isn't a cliche in a series. It IS THE series. Whenever you look harem, this is what is going to happen. The main character may be the most boring, tasteless, scentless, plain guy in the universe, but the girls will want him.

You don't hate a cliche, you hate a gerne. /technical biatch

My grip: Why, of WHY whenever someone slaps someone else across the cheek, the latter HAS to have this epiphany and be SO awestruck about it and CHANGE everything in their acting????

(Mostly in shoujo) IT'S JUST A FUCKING KISS!!!!!!!!!!! I DON'T CARE IF IT'S YOUR FIRST, IT'S. JUST. A. FUCKING. KISS. IT'S NOT A BIG DEAL, JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The same complaint as above: WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS VERY IMPORTANT BATTLE, TIME IS TICKING, WE HATE EACH OHTER'S GUTS, WE'LL FIGHT TO THE DEATH... let me narrate my whole life/explain to you how my technique works.

Infinite headdesk, man.

@Tiff: At least with Inuyasha it had a purpose early on, dude was a crazy violent monster who tried to slice Kagome into little pieces (or so everyone thought in-universe, I'm of the opinion that had he really wanted her dead that series woulda been a whole lot shorter). It does get annoying as fuck when its still being used for comedic abuse so much later though.

EVERY ANIME OPENING LOOKS THE SAME

Also, constantly changing opening songs. Naruto and Bleach and the likes often change their openings and endings every 20 episodes or so.

I'm of the opinion that having one iconic opening+theme song works a lot better than having a bajillion different shitty pop songs that are completely irrelevant to the series.
