For those who don't know, 'What Grinds My Gears' is basically listing your pet-peeves.

So what grinds my gears?

The phrase: "______ is the best anime ever!"
Not trying to offend anyone but people who say this tend to be the ones who only watch mainstream. And they think popularity = how good an anime is. Please don't say something is the best anime ever. Instead, say "_____ is my favorite anime ever!". That way, you don't offend any other animes. Trying hard not to be biased but most of us know that Angel Beats and Toradora are considered some of the best picks by otakus even though they were not nearly as popular as stuff like Naruto, One Piece, Bleach, Fairy Tail, etc.

The guys in most harems have no idea what's going on
Examples: Hayate the combat butler, Infinite Stratos, etc. They get all these girls trying to flirt with them and they have no idea. It's almost like they are scared of the girls. I know the reason why they have to be like that but the problem is, the story goes nowhere like this. But I guess this is better than endings like Oreimo(
) and School Days (uh...) One of the few exceptions that I know of is The World God Only Knows (my favorite anime ever! (notice how I didn't say 'the best'!))


Now it's your turn.

I only have problems with die hard fans if they say bad things about everything else, which pisses me off.

OMG YES! Especially the ones who only watch mainstream. They automatically assume if something isn't popular, it isn't good. Similar to what I said above. Saying something is the best anime ever. Nobody has the right to say that unless they have watched all the animes that ever existed.

The truth I see. That is the truth. Rightfully I acknowledge it. Such truth, such truth, such truth.

What grinds my gears? WHAT GRINDS MY GEARS!? OMG You should have never put this topic up cuz i'm...about...to rant.
alright first off I HATE when either the dumb ass ditsy heroine or another girl is calling the main characters name like, you sound so fucking retarded.

Your always calling his name for what? You sound dumb. Then the waterworks come out. WHAT!? Where did that come from? You look retarded. He's not fighting or anything just for you. If you notice, and pay attention enough, you'd notice he wasn't just doing it for you. There are other people around besides you! You do not exist alone!

Second why are you always hitting the main character? why you always gotta act like the whole show is about you, cuz it's not.I t's not.I dead ass hate you. I...hate you.

Third ,why you always gotta be in his face and follow him around like he's two donkey shits about you. Well to bad,he doesn't. He has better things to do then worry about you. Your just a thirsty THOT.

I think i'm done now, but I might be back so...



Thot - Slut.
