I started this thread for other ppl to vent their frustrations on some things in anime that make you say "What the?" for instance

1. How anime characters get sick for the most retarded reason, and if they have just like a simple cold they always faint or ppl act like they are dying

2. This is something I'm sure everyone has noticed how so MANY anime start off with a person being late, and they are always late and end up having a oh no "gotta get to class scene" thats been over done

3. In romantic comedies The couple has a reason they can't be together or act all shy (examples "My wife is a high school girl" "Ah my goddess"), and they always have ppl interupting them when they are alone and it takes like so many episodes b4 they can even kiss, this irks me more when they are like adult characters its like they are too old to be acting like that lol

4. When twelve year old (or around that) characters (ex.rizelmine, fruits basket momiji) act like they are 6 or something

5. Or you watch anime and they act really serious about something not that deep, and all the characters seem to be philisophical...

6. When it seems like they throw in a kidnap scene just for the sake of having a kidnap scene

man I have so many I'll post more when I think of any but I'm sure every one has something they can relate to in this topic non?

and yes I know its just a cartoon but ya even cartoons can push it...(at least to me lol)

Well the entire ending of Evangelion makes me say "what the..." but in anime in general....probably filler episodes in action anime (I'm looking at you Naruto) that, instead of being funny and giving the watcher a good laugh, instead try to inject a semi-serious mini story arc with some lame bad guys who you *know* the main character could defeat easily, but they give him a hard time for the sake of a few eps of worthless junk filler....that just bugs me.

I agree with #4 up there. Sometimes it's cute but most of the time it's just plain annoying .

I don't like how heroes always just get lucky and always wind up winning because they tap into some inner power that no one else has. . . heroes always seem to get it easy. I want to c a villan win for once ^_^

I also don't like how the men in anime are oblivious when a woman flirts with them.

And it also stinks when they do too many chibi scenes that ruin it because u can't take it serious any more. . .

When Shinji jerked off and blew his load on his hand and said, "I'm so f***ed up" when what's her-face's boob popped out.
I guess that made me laugh more than anything...

mm...I say what the to an anime when the logic is completely off. Like this new anime I just saw today, Nagasarete Airantou, you have a island fill with girls, very young ones too but no male but the one that just drift there by mistake over the whirlpool. How was the young ones borned? the getting over the whirlpool that won't let the islander escape I understand to keep the plot why they can't leave, but how is there no other male?

I don't mind if the plot somewhat don't make sense if given some werid reason, anime aren't suppose to make sense but there's such a thing as way to far fetch. otherwise I think the anime has some good points but can't say after only the first ep.

The whole huge boob thing gets annoying. Many anime girls should have severe back problems.

i get the "what the..." factor
whenever dubbed animes try to translate and make sense of the japanese pun/joke that's going on. When it really doesn't work anything like that, reminds of that part in Ranma 1/2 OAV:" Hell Hath no fury like Kasumi Scorned"....

that erks me a lot.

In shoujo the guy is usually the most popular guy in the school and the girl is loud and noisy. Starting to get over done.
