There's a problem in saying that you outright hate a genre, or that it's the worst genre, whenever there's an exception. Because you can't say "I hate [genre], but [series name] is the one exception." without sounding REALLY contradictory. And of course liking one series means that you may end up liking another, and another, and really you may find yourself enjoying a small niche within that genre making that statement void.

That said, I really can say there is one genre that I never found an exception and avert my attention from and that's hentai. Ecchi elements are often the very fine limit to what I care to stand, and even then it's small SMALL doses. Hentai itself is just a point I outright avoid. But even given that I'll never say it's the worst genre, because I really know nothing of it as I've avoided it. Just the same I won't say I hate it, but heavily dislike the idea of it.

Drama. I hate drama. Don't like it one bit. Unless it's done right, like Little Busters, but otherwise >_> Just not for me. I hate having to see fictional characters go through the crap that the author throws at them for the sake of adding "drama" to the show. I have no problem with struggles or backstory, but some shows just like to rip your heart out for the sake of ripping your heart out. I'm just not a fan of it.

Glad to see such a comment.

I actually don't like these kinds of comments. They're missing the point of the thread. Obviously, objectively none is worse than the other. The thread is for opinions and why each person feels the way they do about what they don't like.

Of course, if someone actually does feel neutral, then good for them lol

I hate country but the best country song in the world is still a pretty good song. Just that country tends to suck, so for me I'd call country the worst genre of music. I don't think exceptions make the statement void.

The combination of horror and ecchi and horror is extremely uncomfortable to me.

Your avatar is Shiori from The World God Only Knows, which is a harem. An immensely good one but one nevertheless .

I personally would have to say horror. I respect a good horror and all (Saya no Uta is in my top ten) but I find it difficult to get invested in a lot of series with in the horror genre. No real reason just personal taste I suppose.

Genres I Hate or Dislike:
- Mecha
- Ecchi
- Hentai
- Sports (the only exception being Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club)
- Sci Fi

Genres I Love or Like (I pretty much like or love every genre except for the ones listed above ^, but these are some of my #1 favs):
- Horror
- Psychological
- Samurai
- Bishounen
- Yaoi/Yuri (not because I love these two genres like how obsessive most other female otakus are, but I do love these genres in the sense that I believe that anyone can love anyone else they want. I am THE biggest supporter of gays, lesbians, transsexuals, bisexuals, and everything else in between. I like how these genres really show how those of the same sex are just as capable of love as heterosexuals. And honestly, I think the love between people of the same gender are a lot stronger and filled with a lot more compassion, loyalty, trust, honesty, etc. than with a straight couple)
- Slice of Life
- Comedy
