It gets on my nerves when a character in anime tries to be cool or wise. Are japanese people in different regions of the country portrayed accurately in anime? I do have to consider that the mind can be influence by some things, but can people become gullible and stupid? Anime, like other cartoons, exaggerate physical or behavioral qualities that entertains and makes them laugh. When anime tries to become serious they usually express stupidity or have some comical or sexual relief.

They make the characters that way for comedic reasons, not to show how people really behave (I hope not). I doubt it if many people really act that way in Japan.

the anime caracters get on my nervs, when they become too pathetical. Too much is too much. The caracter that i really dislike: the guy from the junjou romantica anime, i don't know his name, but he's from the "Junjou Egoist" couple.
Yuki from the VK, becomes annoying at the really end, when she becomes a vampire.

When the character acts in a way that is pathetic even to anime's standards, I will seriously get frustrated at the character, especially if it is the main character.

As for philosophical part, it really depends on how it is used. For instance, something like the 'power of friendship / love', especially in a straightforward manner like a number of shounen series is really cliched in my opinion, which really detracts from the series, as it it pretty much a repetition of the same belief which has been used over and over again.. If it is more profound, realistic, and preferably not so idealistic as other morals, it would be a very valuable asset which would actually get the audience to reflect on it from a different perspective.

It really depends. A character that acts philosophical may want to express the moral or theme to a particular situation. He may want to draw some parallels to past life situations to improve the life of others. So I really don't hate philosophical characters.

As for the "stupid" characters. It really depends, but I hate the ones that intentionally act stupid around others.

stupidity is ok. it's for comedic purpose. the problem is philosophical..we don't have the same philosophy so comments could be twisted per person's basis
