I've watched a lot of Anime and I've noticed a few things that happen quite a lot in every series like- most anime girls that start off with long hair are going to end up with it somehow being dramatically shortened for example:

Sakura-Naruto, cut her hair off while apparently fighting
Ino-Naruto, copied sakura
Lenalee-D.Gray man, her hair was burned off
Haru-X'amd of lost memories, cut hers off after she joined the army
Rita-Welber no monogatari, cut hers off to stop herself being recognized

so what do you think is getting boring or annoying in anime?


Akane from Ranma gets her hair cut off also.

Shows falling into "Inuyasha Syndrome"....once it goes into that, the series looses all interest. Also the "Inuyasha Ending".....The characters just walk off into the horizon knowing someday they'll defeat the villan. We never see that awesome battle.

FLASHBACKS -_-...


Yes, the number one, anime killer, it drives me insane, especially how things are going on in the new bleach series, these 15min flash backs are driving me insane, big turn off.

Also I hate when some animes that have the main guy character that plays as a wimpy, shy , air head, and the girl character has to be lead, in love situations mostly. Drives me nuts.

Another two girls.^^ Michiru from Zombie Loan. She cuts her last remaining long braid to make it even. Her other braid was cut off in the first battle of the series. Tomo from Azumanga Daioh. She cuts her hair to look like this one Japanese movie star.

Also.....at least we can say....Ino's hair grew back.^^

Reasonless power ups... just hate them xD I am more of science man xD I need and decent, valid explanation to why the character was able to do what he did :P


i'm not trying to pick on you but you should switch to some other kind of entertainment because anime and real life logic and physics dont mix ^^

EYEPATCHES !!! I don't even know where to start... about 10% of anime could have these eyepatch characters.


also I think I have only seen like 2 or 3 animes in which they drew the moon correctly. Why can't they draw the moon right??? No one does.

noisey and abusive characters (especially girls)
- why is it that they treat ppl like shit, and yet everyone is fine with it ? then they fall in love.

characters transfering to another world by a book, well, light, card ETC
- zzzz.

elemental powers (fire, water, ice bla bla bla)
- its not bad but it wouldn't hurt to see something new. luffy and the guy from law of ueki has great powers

filler eps where they basically recap everything that happened before.. aka flashbacks

main character girls that are basically get everything they want and need help to solve minor problems but everyone likes them anyway (eg. Kirari, Usagi, etc, no offense meant)

That is not something in Anime as a general rule. It's an actual Genre.

I'm tired of Main Characters who are high school age and younger that can easily kill an enemy easily and be completely unfazed by it, and yet, the moment their friends get hurt because of their carelessness they go cry about it.

I'm tired of fighting being dragged on and people forming life changing philosophies during them. Fights do not last 2 1/2 hours in real life, they last 2 minutes at that.

I'm tired of the same old Shonen plot becoming more and more popular.

I'm tired of power ups. In real life, you do not find power ups to fix a problem, you think and strategize to find a weakness or play to your strengths.

I'm tired of worthless heroins. Not all females are emotionally fragile.

I'm tired of main characters becoming more like Anti-Heroes than being like Heroes.

I'm tired of main characters having to fight "themselves" or some other internal problem. Not everyone is emotionally scarred.


Yes, but doesn't having antihero characteristics make the character seem more real. I mean heros can't be good in every aspect.


Not nessecarily. Being a hero doesn't necessarily mean always being good in every aspect. It simply means you have heroic qualities. Using ones power for good for example. Instead we see more characters who only use it for their own personal gain. Protecting your friends is still for your own gain, even if it is good.

Not to mention that it seems a common staple that all Anti-Heroes must have some sort of tragic past, I'd like to see a hero who lives a normal life, rather than hearing about how his family was killed, or he has a demon or something along those lines.

It seems pretty unrealistic to have all these Anti-Heroes running around and Heroes making themselves scarce.

okay so i'm bored so i decided to do this
CLICHES THINGS THAT HAPPEN IN ANIMES
PART 1 HAREM ROMANCE ANIMES
okay so i haven't seen every harem type anime out there
one's i can think of are, air, kanon, clannad, love hina, school days, kanokon (maybe more but i can't remember atm)
THIS IS PURE RANDOMNESS SO DON'T TAKE IT SERIOUSLY IT'S LIKE 4AM atm
so comments, rants, raves, w/e you want go ahead and post. i expect feedback for this

OKay without further ado! (no particular order)
Male Protaganist
just your average run-of-the-mill guy, living life normally.
well besides the old memories he can't remember ( or doesn't want to)
OH SHI suddenly he's surrounded by women of all sorts of types and sizes.
why is that? well it seems he had nothing better to do but to help a bunch girls with their problems. but why help them? are they paying him? is he getting anything out of it? fuck no, he's just a protaganist whose whole purpose is to solve problems!

Running into someone
"oh Shit i'm gonna be late for school!"
*starts running with food in mouch*
*girl pops out of corner*
"SHI-" *crash*
then suddenly they're in the same class isn't that convienient?

Shy girls
(in japanese for lulz)
"nani o shimasu ka?" (what are you doing?)
"NANDEMONAI!" (nothing!) *face goes red*
"Dai jobu desu ka?" (are you okay?)
"HAI DAI JOBU DESU!" (yes i'm okay!) *more red*
okay honestly i'm a sucker for shy girls. especially the bookworm types with glasses
and usually they are really cute. you gotta wonder why no one else goes for her

Angry girls
you know, those girls who basically say they HATE everything about the protaginist, but secretly have feelings for them as well? oh yes those girls

good looking moms!?
seriously is it like some written rule in anime that the mothers are always better looking than their daughters? not that i'm complaining.

Girls with special abilities
oh crap she's a ghost!
oh crap she's a vampire!
oh crap she's a demon hunter!
oh crap she can FLY ohmy.gif
oh crap she's a ROBOT! <--epic

loli looking girls
"i'm a high school student!" (okay i got that from Moetan but w.e it fits )
it's not the fact they're small, it's the fact they're NOTICEABLY small!
i'm talking about the girls who look like they should be middle school
DRINK MORE MILK! wait is that for height?

Childhood friend
oh shit, here we go
guy and girl who are great friends as kids.
suddenly the guy leaves for some damn reason.
and they don't see or hear from each other for years.
suddenly they meet again, oh joy right? WRONG.
why wrong you ask? well cause either one of two things
1. only one likes the other while the other is too stupid to realize.
2. they both like each other but are too damn shy to admit it.

akward position D:
oh crap he tripped and ran into and now he's lying directly on top of her! well better get up before OH SHIT SOMEONE SAW YOU better run after them to clear up the misunderstanding.

rumors?
"HUH!? HE DID WHAT WITH WHO!?"
nothing worse then coming into a room full of angry people am i right?
whether or not the rumors are true is meaningless since everyone believes it

do you like him/her or not?
never a straight answer.
though most likely they're gonna say "NO I DON"T LIKE HIM/HER"
but they're lying we know that

HE'S MINE!
"i like him!" "NO i LIKE HIM!" "I SAW HIM FIRST!" "WHY DOES THAT MATTER!?"
even more worse when it's like
"who do you like MORE!?"
god do you seriously expect an answer like that with BOTH people in question RIGHT FREAKING THERE!?
then you the viewer dunno whether to be jealous of the guy or feel sorry for him.

live close by
suddenly the girl he just met is living right next to him OH SHIT!

trapped in a room
*guy and girl go into a room*
*someone walks by*
"oh why is this door open?
*SHUT!*
*doors locked from outside*
well how's this gonna end i wonder?

I hate you all
there's always the one person who's like "i'm not part of this group" and stands off in the corner. I know you got problems but no need to be emo about it tongue.gif then suddenly she changes her mind once the protganist appers, cause EVERYONE LOVES THE PROTAGANIST AMIRITE!?

WHY DON'T YOU **** HER ALREADY!?
the protaganist's friends, who you always wonder how the hell they became friends?
you know the kinda friends who are like "ZOMG YOU WERE ALONE WITH HER AND OYU DIDN"T DO ANYTHING!?" those kinda friends. yeah. the one's who give you advice on getting girls when thye havne't got any themselves, those friends

protaganist abuse
*kick to the face*
"WTF DID YOU JUST SAY!?"
never get on a girls bad side, especially if you know they can beat your ass
on a side note how many times did the guy from love hina get knocked into the air? tongue.gif

OH NOW I REMEMBER
oh crap, this thing, this thing this thing this thingthisthingthisthingthisthingTHISTHING OH THAT"S RIGHT SOMEONE GAVE ME THIS A LONG TIME AGO, now who was it again? <.<
also, losing your memory happens easily apparently. (sarcasm) (also pointless reference to Kanon)

IT'S OKAY WE'RE COUSINS
okay sure fine it's not like a sister, but it's still kinda... oh hell A COUSIN IS FINE TOO
also, what is up with the little sisters?


done for now, cause i ran out of ideas :T
i've seen alot of animes parody this kinda stuff
Kanokon made a whole joke of the whole "running into someone who happened to be in your class" thing. "WHERE'D YOU LEARN THAT!?" "from this magazine" *points*
Welcome to NHK, trying to make a adult novel game, shows alot of things that happen in every adult novel. "THAT"S NOT EVEN A JAPANESE WORD!" this made me literally ROFL
Lucky Star, talking about flags and other random novel related stuff.

oh and, IF I HEAR SOMEONE SAY NAN-DE-MO-NAI ONE MORE TIME... >.<
I HOPE YOU ENJOYED MY POINTLESS GIANT POST OF CLICHES AND STUFF
if you like it, YAY
if you don't, YA- wait,,,
