i hate UNNECESSARY filler and/or bad pacing.

if it's giving a character some much needed development or it's like ONE properly hilarious episode to kind of break-up a time skip. then it's fine. but things like naruto where they just pack in a TON of shitty pointless filler is just infuriating

i hate when there's a lack of voice ACTING and/or when a voice doesn't suit a character at all

i've noticed that sometimes, with english dubs in particular, they get people who are trying to make a "unique" sounding voice and it's so strained and unnatural that they completely forget to actually ACT or put any feeling or emotion into their voice. they could be saying the most poignant lines ever written and i won't give a shit because they're either saying it in their "cool monotone voice" or they sound like a friggin' looney toon.

one example of an anime that did everything RIGHT with voice acting is Cowboy Bebop. even the little background characters got good voices. there was one guy who had the full surfer dude thing going on and he STILL came across like an actual person because the voice fit his personality and he didn't say anything awful or cheesy. they had lots of unique voices, but they got people who could actually ACT, they were believable, and the casting was amazing so all the voices were suited to the characters. which doesn't seem to be a requirement with some anime lately.

i hate CONSTANT flashbacks

again, looking at you naruto.

SERIOUSLY what kind of episode layout is:
[opening theme 2min] "Previously, on Naruto" [5min later] "Flashbacks to previous episodes" [10min later] "new thing happens" [5min] "closing credits and funny character interview thing" [3min].

rinse. repeat.

i hate unnecessary fanservice

there are some anime where that is what you're gonna see no matter what because that is the type of anime it is, and thats fine.

but there's other anime where the plot is great and so are the characters and then some shitty otaku in the company is like "you know what this needs? more panty shots!" like seriously if it's actually going to be a SERIOUS anime and not some silly harem deal or comedy or a straight-up fanservice anime, then STOP IT. i don't need to see a wonderful female character constantly degraded for the sake of fanservice when the males don't get the same treatment. now if the camera angles are gonna do the same thing for ALL the characters and we get to see booty close-ups of the guys too, then fine, go for it.

i hate the over-sexualisation of young characters

i'm sick of seeing girls who look like they're 12 in "compromising" poses or situations. just stop. they're kids. it's gross.

i hate incest and sexual harassment being shown as a "normal" thing

seriously. no real world repercussions. this dude [or chick] just gropes every girl they see and the girl just goes "kyaaaa" and the rest of the characters just ignore it or straight-up don't give a shit. it just reinforces the idea that this behaviour is ok when it is seriously NOT. and honestly do i even have to explain the incest thing.

Most of the time it just seems so fucking cheesy to me, but it must be a normal thing in Japan.


anime =/= real life


I don't believe I said that, I said that might be a more common saying in Japan that I'm not used to.

Nothing in particular in the anime themselves, but when I'm literally watching a show, I hate getting interrupted, or watching when there are other people in the house. The background noise they make disrupts the experience and I tend to lose some bits of important information.

I dislike poorly executed and animated fight scenes, especially when battles are the main base of a show...that's kind of a problem

I hate anime that kills its important characters. Akama kill and gurren lagann disappoint me so much.
Also naruto shippuden. One piece is fine since I don't like Ace too much.

First girl always wins or random ecchi moments, like when Rei fell on Shinji and her breasts landed on his face, or worse, the boobfall getting recycled.

Unnecessary drama to keep rolling out new episodes. Example Celestial Method; they just added layers of drama by making their characters be irrational, douches. Most drama from that anime came from characters not wanting to talk to each other because of some stupid reason.

When they're about to fight their enemy but for some reason they have to open up about their childhood traumas or a REALLY cringe worthy speech, everytime Naruto said " this is my way of ninja" i had a mini stroke.

Cringe worthy interactions between characters that feel like they were directed by Otaku hermits who've never socialized with anyone outside of their mothers' basements.
