I was gonna say JoJo's with better writing, but honestly if it actually made sense I don't think it would be as good.

So I'm gonna go with a manga (because the anime has absolutely no redeeming qualities), Fuuka without the trashy romance and ecchi. The story of the band is actually quite good.

That last season of Bleach is a total waste because there isn't anymore. The season prior Ichigo loses his powers and has a heartfelt goodbye. THAT should've been the end of the series. But a whole season to give him his powers back, promising more to come that doesn't kept me from giving it a five out of five. That and filler.

Claymore, Raki

While I get he's the stand-in for the "damsel in distress" he's really annoying in the role. Though given how Claymore uses the typical shounen tropes it may be deliberate. ("See how annoying it is when a guy does it? Well, it's just as annoying when it's a girl. Stop it.")

As much as I like Gintama, that "overtalking" by certain characters (like Shinpachi) gets kinda annoying.

For a more recent one, I think Gamers! would have been better without Konoha ... I guess she was good if you're into twintail moe stuff, but I just found her kind of creepy and intrusive, and she didn't particularly play any important roles in the anime that couldn't have been played by any of the other main characters. I normally like siblings quite a bit in any fictional work, but she just didn't feel necessary IMHO.
Off-topic, but I REALLY wanted that Misumi Eiichi episode that they teased us with and we didn't get >:c

I had to take a sick day yesterday, so I plowed through Interviews with Monster Girls. Loved it. Except one thing, so I must ask:

Is there a point to Kurtz? Like, does he become significant down the line in the manga or something? Because as far as the existing season is concerned, he's a blond turd in the punch bowl who screws up the show's whole vibe for no reason or interesting conflict that I can discern.

Could we have a version of Seven Deadly Sins where the characters aren't skewered, gushing blood, or gaping daylight holes in their corpi every other scene?
It does rather spoil the more comic scenes in the stories.

It's maybe obvious but SAO without Kirito, easily the best arc in the anime was the one where he wasn't in it

Kamille was a bitch and he screwed over Jerid. Jerid wasn't even a bad guy until Kamille kept fucking up his life. Jerid deserved better.

For me, Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, and Bleach would be so much better with the heroes' friends actually catching up to them and becoming useful for once. E.g. Krillin, Yamcha, and Piccolo in Dragon Ball, Chad, Ishida, and Orihime in Bleach.

I second that. It's bullshit that supporting characters always end up being left behind or incompetent. The fact that writers can't figure out how to write competent supporting characters without detracting from the main character's own competence is baffling

Seraph of the End -- Better looking Seraph wings--like in the manga. That's the ONE turn off.

digimon tri if they didn't have that terrible theme music they play over almost every single digivolution and fight scene like they did for the kids show. Fantasy and ash without the stereotypical female archetypes and overused fan service(sorry not sorry). KADO if they didn't ruin it. I like dragon ball super, but they are still using heavy amounts of filler and that really bugs me, I am glad there's some lady fighters now though. black clover the SCREAMING ALL THE TIME.

Gurren Lagann would have been better without the epilogue. It's a bittersweet ending with so much bitter, that it cancels out the sweet.

Durarara!! would have been better without Ruri Hijiribe. Her story went nowhere, wasted time, and really only contributes to Kasuka's.

Death Note would have been way better without Near. Why is he such a blatant copycat of L?

Hunter x Hunter would have been better without the narrator during Chimera Ant. Why didn't he shut up?

And on a more minor note, Digimon Tamers would have been a little creepier if they didn't change the J-Reaper's form. While taking the appearance of Jeri/Juri, it was scary as hell. When it transformed into it's odd harpy form, it looked stupid.

I think that covers the major ones for me.

Hinata no Aoshigure would have been better without that unnecessary accidental pervert scene at the beginning. It ruined the overall feel of the movie. If that wasn't there, I'd probably show the movie to my little sister.
