Im pretty sure there was already a thread about this, but im pretty fed up of sterotypical anime using the archetypal anime 'dude' who is in actual reality a pathetic loser. I know its a bit much to expect a mirror of reality in anime, but is there any series that pisses you off like i am?

I recently saw 2 episodes of Love Love?, argh! horrible! i cant belive this series was ever even conceptualized, it is just panty oogling right from the very start, and it leads nowhere. I am sick of these anime 'creators' who are just making more crap that bogs the industry down, how do you justify creating series' such as this - we've already had enough of girls bravo, eiken etc etc. If i wanted hentai id buy it, but dont pass it off as a series that actually expounds on the complexities of a relationship.

I feel like im the al franken of anime, but to be fair im critical of all genres not just harem.

So I thought Love Love would be a good victim for this endeavor. I was SO wrong.

I lack the words to express my utter and complete amazement over the fact that something like this was created, though heaven knows the two episodes I watched practically URGED me to type up this review in an attempt to give my pain and suffering form. Somewhere in Japan, some guy thought "Hey, it would be cool if there was an anime featuring a large roster of underage girls showing off their panties all the time. Things like that don't need any plot. They just need a dorky male lead to initiate all the zaniness."

I guess there has to be a saying that goes "one man's zaniness is another man's indescribable suffering." I don't really know how to explain the levels of pain in this one, but "zany" wasn't exactly the first word that came to mind.

The thing is, I have no idea what they WANTED to do with this anime, outside of the obvious. The main lead failed to get into his school of choice, but he still attends A school, goes to classes and interacts with every goddamn girl in said learning facility. This is usually initiated by him seeing her panties, or them crashing together because noone apparently has the common sense to look where they're going or running in that particular neck of the country. If the result isn't a panty shot, you can be damn sure they'd go for a breast grab instead. And this sort of thing goes on CONSTANTLY in the duration of both the episodes, and, I assume, all of the following ones! I mean, the loser collides with at LEAST five or six girls in each of the two first episodes. No, seriously.

The fact that all the characters adheres to some stupid "dating game personality standard" doesn't help in the slightest. In fact, each and every character in this show amounts to the dullest, most asinine lot I've ever bore witness to in any anime, and that goes double for the main lead who are supposed to represent what, exactly? As completely amazing as it sounds, this series is not based on any dating game.

Oh, by the way; did I mention that each of the girls are underage? Yep, they're all aged from 17 and down to 11. Which means we are getting panty shots from 11 year old girls. That is wrong on so many levels, the world's best supercomputer would be unable to compile them all without bursting into flames out of self-preservation! And if you saw the show, that would make sense to you too.

But.... hell, what am I supposed to think when the whole show consists of mysterious winds appearing out of nowhere, only to blow girls' skirts up in the air, or the way the main lead seems to collide into another girl every time he runs somewhere, often with a resulting panty shot or breast grab? Girls are jumping down from higher vantage points, landing on the guy's FACE, ferchrissake. There's even a scene where he is forced to hide in a school locker with the 11 year old girl, and as he watches the other girls change, he gets a boner, which she comments on, with the tone and attitude of someone who sure as hell isn't just eleven.

It gets worse. Jesus, does it get worse.

At the end of episode two, the "in the next episode" feature presented us with tentacles. Yes, tentacles. And nudity. And me getting the hell out of there. We may TRY to strive for full reviews at THEM, but there's nothing in this world that will make me sit through the rest of this show. I loathe it with a passion I haven't felt since I watched DearS. In fact, this show is far worse than even the monument of misogyny that bears said name. I wish Love Love to be sent to the deepest layers of hell, where it can burn for an eternity. And the same would go to whichever distributor who has the gall to even THINK about licensing this."

w-wish

I remember this one...OMG i died after the first episode. I seriously did.......

Anyways this is a review...:

"

What is this?

I mean seriously, did the creators really think they could pass this off as serious anime? Like any form of entertainment, viewers have to have a reason to watch an anime series for that series to be good. Well, after two episodes of W-Wish, I had found absolutely no reasons to watch it, and quite a few reasons NOT to. It is one of the stupidest, most nonsensical shows I’ve ever seen.

The main problem is that the characters are laughably horrible. The only consistency I could find in the characterization of our two leads, Senna and Junna, was that they never had any appealing qualities. In fact, I can’t even tell which one was worse.

First off, you have Junna, the male lead. He has no enthusiasm or opinion over anything at all (as I discovered in the first five minutes when he goes on about the stupid school festival). The worst thing about his character is that he HATES his sister Senna for NO reason! I mean it, no reason WHATSOEVER! This is supposed to be a heartwarming show about two siblings’ love for each other, and every other minute you get Junna calling Senna an idiot, telling her she’s wrong, or just completely blowing her off. It makes no sense, and completely puts the entire series to a halt (although it’s not the only thing that does, unfortunately). You do get some background into Junna’s character, but like everything else in this piece of junk, it doesn’t make ANY sense! Some indefinite time in the past, his parents died in a car crash. A car crash that, in a flashback, you actually SEE him escape unharmed from! Now, however many years later, you’re supposed to believe that he has amnesia because of it, and can’t remember anything before the accident. That’s RIDICULOUS! Extreme sorrow over a stressful situation may cloud one’s memories of that specific event, but to believe that grief can cause you to forget your ENTIRE LIFE up to a certain point is asking too much! It does not make you feel sorry for Junna; all it does is allow for Senna to be even more annoying than she already is (but we’ll get to Senna later…*_*).

A last thing I noticed about Junna’s character was that, as much of an unappealing, boring loser that his character is, he still makes random decisions that are inconsistent with his character. A loser that doesn’t care about anything and that despises the person he’s closest to DOES NOT join a “Helper’s Club”. In fact, not even Mother Teresa would join this show’s “Helper’s Club”, because it is the STUPIDEST, most RANDOM idea ever come up with, in an anime or otherwise. But Junna just signs right up to start helping people, especially since the idiot who asked him to join (I forget her name), tells him how much he CARES about people, especially his sister. Ummmm…BS!

However, Junna’s not the only character here with a problem. His younger sister Senna is one of the dumbest, most annoying anime characters I’ve ever seen! You know how I said Junna hated her for no reason? Well, I may be wrong, he may have a very good reason for hating her. Maybe her hates her because she’s SO DANG ANNOYING! She fells that, because Junna idiotically remembers nothing from his childhood, they should “create memories” by always doing stuff together. That’s the stupidest idea I’ve ever heard of! I mean for goodness’ sake, they live together! Why does she insist that they do all this extra stuff together and try to “make memories”?! Also, her constant attempts to be close with Junna lead her to making some VERY wrong advances on him (which get pretty disturbing at times). That just adds an extra lever of stupidity to a show that seems to be powered by stupidity.

So, overall, they characterization in W-Wish is unfathomably horrible. They have Senna trying to get close with Junna for no reason, and they conveniently have Junna constantly pushing her away for no reason! This convenient “tension” between the leads is basically what drives (or is supposed to drive) the entire plot of this dumb show. And for more “plot”, they randomly throw in “plot twists”, like when the siblings’ school tries to make them move into a dorm for no apparent reason (Did you know they have dorms in Middle School these days? I sure didn’t!). This all makes for a plot that is not only stupid, but also immensely boring. Oh, and when it came to the supporting characters, there wasn’t a single one I didn’t hate the guts of by the end of episode two, and that’s really, really bad.

On the technical side of things, W-Wish was not as bad, but certainly wasn’t outstanding either. The animation is pretty dull, with boring, cliché character designs and simple backgrounds. The music was the best part of this show, but that’s not saying much. Some of the tunes were a little catchy (I guess), and the OP and ED were actually pretty good. However, I’m not reviewing the soundtrack, I’m reviewing the anime (if this show even deserves to be called anime), and decent music will not help this one’s rating at all!

So that’s where I stand on W-Wish by the end of episode two. Now granted, based on the OP, there appear to be some characters that have not been introduced yet, but I feel it’s safe to say the best they could do to this anime is turn it into a date-of-the-week or harem show (which is not much better then the retarded attempt at “sibling fellowship” they’re feeding us in these first episodes). Also, unless all those dumb characters and that dumb school are nuked in the next episode, I don’t really feel like watching any more."

ooooooooooooh i know...Yu-gi-oh

80% of Ecchi/Harem focused animes are horrible. They're so cliche it's annoying to watch (which is probably why most of them are 13 episodes long).

Summary of most Ecchi/Harem anime:

Whiny 17 year old loser with no future meets 3+ beautiful girls who all happen to fall in love with him (LOL). The first 8 episodes builds up the relationship between them all. Then the last 4 episodes he finds out who he really loves, and when he's just about to loose her he confesses. Finally they live happily ever. The End.


I also watched Love Love? after a friend recommended it to me, and I somehow made it through all 12? episodes. I haven't watched a Harem anime since. If I want to watch a love story I'll just watch a Love-Romance/Drama anime, because most the time they're actually good.

It's funny that you made this topic because just yesterday I was telling my dad why I only like some animes now. It's because a whole bunch of them use the same general story line: a pathetic guy suddenly having a bunch of beautiful girls chase after him. Them accidently being naked in front of them and him "accidently" grabbing their boobs. Yeah I hate anime like that. I like the more original stuff. Im really tired of the whole magical girls thing because they seem to being doing that over and over again. So I agree with you.

you know i like fanservice but only to a certain point, i just started watching shuffle, the intro immediately made me just sick and tired of this childhood friend of the same age bullshit, where the girls only role in the plot is to take care of the bum guy and the two play house together after some accident where their parents are killed (most likely a traffic accident). Now, its not to say i hate the series, its just that this revulsion dawned on me while i was watching it.
