Well I was sitting here talking to my ole lady(who is a huge anime fan as I am) and we was talking about how people always talk about their favorite animes and why they love anime, but no one ever talk about what they hate about anime.

So I am here to say some stuff I hate about anime and here it goes:

1. When the hero explains his skill to the enemy
2. How today's anime has little 2 year ole half naked girls(When I was growing up off anime we had grown women not half naked little girls)
3.How when a hero gets beat up and some how gets the heart of the tiger and come back and win the fight
4.How the main male character ALWAYS seem to be afraid of women( I mean serious you got all these women trying to have sex with you and you scared? REALLY? I would kill to be in a situation like that)
Edit:
5. When they have 1 on 1 fights with the bad guys. I mean like really this guy trying to kill everyone on the planet and you worried about a fair fight? I am happy it's just a anime and people in the real world don't think that way.

I hate when the main character just pulls all the girls and doesn't even want them.

YOU USELESS SON OF A B***H!

But I guess you already said that :)

Explaining his skill - That's just stupid :/

you know like naruto or bleach when they fighting someone they always seems to explain their skill to the enemy, going into details how the skill works and everything. I find that to be stupid as hell about anime

All things I agree with; and I would add that I get really fed up when female characters turn out to be useless. Like when they're set up to be strong or you know they're strong because you've seen them fight but they choke out at a critical time or freeze up and a male character has to come in and save them. Or when they're strong but the male characters get stronger and stronger as the series progresses and the women get left in the dust and become useless just because everyone is now on a whole different level.

Just poor characterization for female characters in general is what gets me I guess.

I hate the fact that, in all the animes like 95 percent of them. All the main characters are either in their preteens or 16 and 17 years old then these kids act like their so big and mighty and knows everything about the world, when their barely out of highschool and is not even legal. Oh, did I mention all these 16 and 17 year olds characters act like 30 year olds in terms of maturity and looks like in their mid twenties.

I just don't understand why the manga and anime creaters always makes stories revolving around highschool kids even when it's saving the world. It's so bothering and boring, like always the same thing..

It's time to make characters 18 and above, there should be some age difference. Everyone doesn't have to be in the same stupid age!

While I see your point and I too get annoyed with little 12 year olds acting all grown up and saving the world, I think it's important to remember the target audience for many of these shows. I think the shows you're mostly referring to are shounens, which are mainly targeted at young boys in the teen and pre-teen age range so the characters are the same age as the target audience. There are shows out there with older characters (most memorable in the shounen division would probably be Himura Kenshin, aged 28), and a lot of seinen have older characters. I've been finding recently that my personal tastes in manga and anime have been shifting toward the seinen division. Guess I'm growing up and branching out!

I hate when my favorite characters die
I hate crappy filler arcs
I hate pointless whiny characters that don’t do anything but whine

Lol I love this post-finally someone says it. Yes I HATE the perverted 5-8 year old-little girls who are
somehow 17 and in high school...and their bodies are always that of a little girl. A lot of times the
actual story is great...just Way too perverted and pedo. I mean just look at the new anime..its 90%
Tiny girls with a 5year old bodies being perverted.

My biggest beef with anime is manga adaptations which the started long before the actual manga even has an end in sight or even a direction on where it'll be going.
This usually results in a humongous amount of fillers or even complete filler seasons.
Or worse, series taking an entirely different direction from where the series was meant to be going only to see the entire series being remade to follow the actual story later.

Moat new season ones.Cuz They don't last long(12-26 eps).manga adaptations.

Favorite adaptation right now is HxH. Nurarihyon was also great.Those are ones I can cope with(when they slightly change something).Other than that I stray away from them.

Extremely archetypal and stereotypical character conventions.

Extremely unrealistic and downright awkward flow of conversation and emotion between individuals.

(To clarify, as if they are waiting until the camera pans to them to give their response, or they are given extra camera time while everyone else does nothing whatsoever, etc. etc. It's all so gimmicky and I'm getting sick of it. An example would be the latest family scenes from Space Brothers, with the two female astronauts. As were Muttas family scenes I found to be relatively realistic even if annoying.) Those are my two biggest ones, that seem to be in every show.

I hate other peoples opinions about anime.

Ranging from the "loli/ecchi is destroying anime" to the "omg (insert overhyped pile of garbage title here) is so great more anime should be just like it."

I hate shows that have tits just to have tits (HOTD would have been AMAZING without them), shitty J-pop openings, shows where years pass and the main character doesn't seem to ACTUALLY age or get smarter (Clannad is a great example of this NOT being a problem), And the fact that there is no second season of Black Lagoon (WHO DO I HAVE TO BLOW TO GET ANOTHER SEASON HERE!).
