Underdeveloped supporting characters and/or a main character who gets more than 60% of the spotlight. There are exceptions, but if you're focusing on one character for the entire series, they'd better be developing constantly. In action shows, the same can be said about relative power. Too often, the main character is pretty much the one that has to handle everything.

Gratuitous fanservice. I'm one of the less picky people about what type of fanservice it is, but when it detracts from otherwise immersive atmosphere or takes time away from an interesting story, that's irritating to say the least. Again, there are exceptions, but I can only really appreciate a lot of fanservice if it's done in a self-aware parody style, a la Monogatari.

My biggest problem with anime, though, is that by and large, it's always squeezed into 11-13, 22-26, or ~50 episodes. The construct of 'seasons' is a problem, because anime has to be written or adapted in such a way that it fills these seasons. If a series doesn't fit neatly into one of the usual lengths, you end up with, on one end, filler being added, usually with no input by the actual creator, or on the other, things being left out, again without creator input. Or else, the pacing is just thrown out of whack, which is arguably even worse. I wish the length of anime was more malleable, and they could be produced to cover as many episodes as they actually need, and no more.

Things that bug me hmmm..



1. Weird for the sake of being weird. Weird shows are fine when they have an interesting story to back it up. But a lot of shows just try to be all edgy and end up as pretentious nonsense where the writer is just trying to make themselves feel special.

2. When single season anime spends too long on minor details then tries to cram all the good stuff into two episodes.

3. Dumb heroines. It wasn't cute when Sailor Moon did it and it's still not cute XD

The worst is when they name their attacks, and yells the name of the attack every, single time. It's okay some times, but jeez. Oh, and explaining how you beat the enemy, to the enemy. That's just a dick move.

Oh, and the classic, giving your enemy time to charge his supreme attack of absolute death. How is that smart at all?

1. Yaoi and Yuri(not always) takeover. Every time a anime series strictly for boys/men come out, a hardcore fujoshi claim for their very own. Never mind about the plot and character development because Yaoi is ALWAYS on their mind. The awful part is when a fujoshi gets butt hurt about someone attacking her fan-made Yaoi pairing. Its a shounen/senien anime series for guys. Its really selfish, immature, opinionated, mean, and stupid of them to get bitchy like that. Not every Yaoi fangirl is like that. In EVERY fandom there will ALWAYS be an annoyingly insane fan and a sane fan. The idea of taking two heterosexual males and putting them in a relationship out of immense jealousy towards the female character is downright absurd. The same thing goes for when a homosexual anime character is placed in a Yaoi or Yuri relationship with a heterosexual character. In shoujo and josei anime shows sometimes get placed in a Yaoi fandom but shounen/senien gets it worst. It seems more and more anime shows that aren't in any way meant for Yaoi is getting infected. Not all of the Yaoi fandom is like this along with Yuri. I like both Yaoi and Yuri equally by the way.

2. Harem/Reverse Harem anime shows with the useless male and female lead. Hate to say it but they are not use to having beautiful men and women fall to their feet. They aren't the ones who constantly have guys or girls asking them out on dates. Sadly, they're just not able to handle inhumanly beautiful people stand before them. That is something that can get on over time.


3. The moment a villain turns whiny once they lost the fight against the hero. Or when a person only becomes a villain due to something simple. I just want a villain that is evil because they WANT to be not because of something that happen in their past. And when that said villain lose I would like it if they at least died without any regrets and not whine. Too bad we'll never have that anime series where the villain wins and the hero loses. I expect a lot out of a villain but a little out of a hero.

4. More manly looking men and boyish looking boys in shounen/senien anime shows. In shoujo/josei anime shows, place more headstrong, independent, tough, and bright female lead like the ones in shounen/senien shows. Place the traps and reverse traps in an anime better suited for them.....they need their own place.

Fandoms are what they do obviously. Everyone has an idea of what they really want in a anime series and that is where fan fiction and/or fiction comes in. Cliches are always just too popular than the original. Somewhere, in Japan there are probably some people that feel the exact same way. Times are changing but that won't change anybody's mind. *shrug shoulders* It is what it is.

1. unnecessary and excessive fanservice
2. incest -and what more with a good storyline. I'll be like : i want to like this but i can't..
3. useless female character that always need others to save them.
4. haters of any anime with question like "i can't see why people like this trash". It's not that I never hated on any anime, but there's always someone who is over hating and can't seem to accept that there are people who like what they hate.

Yes!
I hate it when they do that. I mean, if the anime is good; I will watch it. But it still bothers me.

I also hate it when they make episodes about nothing...
Naruto was good at that. But that's just me!

No, when you were growing up you were watching magical girls in skimpy outfits fighting the forces of evil, while organisming to some guy in a tuxedo.

Although, Tuxedo Mask was quite the looker.

When someone is getting their ass handed to them, but they still act all high and mighty..
Take the final Ichigo versus Aizen fight in Bleach, Aizen was pretty much like "stop kicking my ass while I tell you why you cannot defeat me." but Ichigo was all "naw mother f*(#$r, *rattarattarattarattaa* you're going down!

If you get my drift.

1. When the hero explains his skill to the enemy
This annoys me too! They spend most of the time talking and crying over old memories rather than just.. fighting.
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)
Also agreed, it's pretty disgusting.
3.How when a hero gets beat up and some how gets the heart of the tiger and come back and win the fight
I guess this depends on the anime, some made it really epic and others made it very poorly.
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)
Agreed again.
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.
You bring out a lot of stuff that I agree with!

I agree 100% with everything on this list too.

The character is using a sword but it won't cut anything. It only makes mere cat scratches.


Excessive announcement of moves or skills.
