The dumb but lucky protagonist. That kinda guy who has no real talent or abiity to do anything and he's pretty stupid but has a lot of heart and guts and just charges into everything and somehow comes out on top by sheer luck or having some sort of ridiculous power that wins the day.

Westerners being always portrayed as arrogant,rude and/or slutty. Black people being portrayed as dumb and animal like.

The every girl in the show must like the MC kinda stories. Not always reserved for harem anime i just hate these perfect male characters that exist to furfil the viewers fantasies about guys being able to make girls fall for them no matter what.

Also hate weird for the sake of being weird. Deep meaningful surrealness can be very good when done right but often shows will be directed by some self important idiot who just constantly seems to be in your face like "LOOK AT ALL THAT WEIRD STUFF I DID! I'M SO EDGY!"

Fan wise i'd say yaoi fangirls kinda get on my nerves. I'm trying to enjoy a show and they want to pair off guys and start talking about how they should make out etc etc. Look just let me enjoy the show keep your man sex fantasies to yourself.

How about the ones where it is unclear whether they are dumb but lucky, or very intelligent but act dumb (e.g, Captain Tylor)?

Over emotional melodrama.

When a show has most/all of their main characters act as if their life is absolutely miserable, that everything is against them,mane they're always crying about oh everything sucks. Also includes characters treating their problems as if they'd just been told that they have cancer.

This also includes shows that pander towards the emotions of it's audience, to frame the show in such a way that it grabs the viewers' heart, but not have the substance or a well-written story to back up the emotional context.

Stupid questions.

Mom clearly sees her kid come home from school and still asks if they are home.

People who say Sword Art Online is sad should watch Angel Beats and see if SAO is still so sad. And people say Naruto is sad because that's the only shit they watch. One time, there was a poll somewhere for top 10 animes that made you cry and Naruto was in top 10. Like wtf? I get that CLANNED is #1 and Angel Beats is #2 but Naruto? Oh no... SAO was #7 (which I didn't get) and forgot where Naruto was but oh well

Whenever a character has their entire personality explained in one scene. It's tedious, stupid, and spoils the viewers' investment in the character.

Oh man, there are many things that grind my gears or put me off when it comes to anime. That's probably why I'm one of the pickiest anime viewers around. The only two that really grind my gears though are "unnecessary forced drama" and "bad character design." Of course I know bad is subjective, but if a character design puts me off, I have a hard time enjoying an anime. For example there is this one anime on here where the main female lead wears an eye-patch and has some powers or something ridiculous. I saw one episodes and thought "Wow. This is incredibly stupid" and gave up on it.

Not in any particular order- 14 yearold girls, pleated miniskirt uniforms, and high school. Enough already.

Anime fans who go full weaboo and insult cartoons.

Growing up watching cartoons, i feel extremely offended by this.
They have a right to criticize cartoons, not to insult it.

When I was little, I didn't even know the difference between anime and cartoon lol

now cartoon is something you watch on TV when you have nothing to do. And it doesn't matter what order of episodes you watch it in. you can watch like season 2 ep 5 and then watch season 1 ep 3 and fully understand what's going on.

anime, you have to watch from ep 1 or else you don't know what the f is going on. But the story has more meaning to it.

Lol love all the comments! Damnn some of you are smart as hell. Anyways what grinds my gears:

Bland main characters, like a main character doesn't need to be OP or all over the place in the anime but just give me a reason to freaking like you

Bland main characters are --- ( Otonashi from angel beats, keiichi from higurashi, amano yukiteru ) just to name a few.

That's one of the reasons i love cartoons.
You don't need to go all the way back from season to know what's happening, just jump into any episode in any season and you're set to go!

So you don't watch any of the animes that are currently airing? Because there are ones that aren't mainstream and they are amazing.


no new animes dont have that good feel like in the old animes
