Expository episodes. If the background/setting/events are so complicated and convoluted that it takes an entire episode, or worse multiple, the storyboard has seriously goofed up somewhere. I don't watch anime to see cool settings, I watch anime to fun characters do fun things in cool settings. Overly heavy exposition breaks the flow of a show horribly.

While somewhat tolerable if it's a late in the season if the show has built up enough good grace with enjoyable/well developed characters, an exposition dump in the first couple of episodes is an automatic drop for me.

Have you ever tried to NOT expect anything from an anime series?


Why do you care? It has nothing to do with you.

Why can't I care even though it has nothing to do with me?

All "jokes" aside, I was only curious that is all. I'll leave you alone now.

NTR, rape, and cheating. Just, stop with that already.
Other than that, annoying dojikko with annoying voices (Mikuru and Yurika), and exaggerated bouncing breasts(Forgiveable if they aren't "that" big and the character's personality is likeable) are big no's.
I have nice list of deal breakers, but these are the worst. Tho I probably won't drop anything unless it involves the first three mentioned.

A character in the main cast that has an annoying voice. It wouldn't be so bad if they showed up once in a while but if they are in every episode then i'm done i'll wait for the dub.

Example her voice makes my ears bleed.


I-I'm not alone~
Was starting to think I was the only one being destroyed by that voice. Not that her personality is any better.

The artwork has to not make me cringe to just see an ad..... The plot has to make sense not like Another where the finale destroyed everything the rest of the series was doing.... Also I think main char being likable.

These don't necessarily make me want to drop a series, but they are general dislikes and there are few exceptions to some. Bratty loli characters, heavy focus on romantic sub-plots, adult MC being romantically involved with a loli, annoying damsels(think Orihime), OP MC.

annoying voice.. main character who's absolutely stupid. ecchi. when girls are portrayed as complete ditz who just want sex and accident flash everyone 24/7, rape, groping. so basically any anime with ridiculous fanservice and guys who treat girls like toys is worth less than dirt to me

-When characters don't clear up misunderstandings right away and instead just sit on needless drama.

-people who don't lock the door when they bathe/change (Not suuuper deal breaker, but somthin that annoys me.)

-people who don't knock before entering a bathroom/someone else's room. (see above)

So why do people insist on saying that Asuna got weaker in the ALO arc?

My Deal Breaker:

-A villain / Rival should never beat the hero / team by an Ass pull. Reason being is when / if the villain is defeated later in the series, it's totally unbelievable.

Cesar's win over Nobunaga's group in Nobunaga the Fool. Biggest ass pull win I've ever seen. It totally turned me off the series after that even though I hung around for a few more episodes.

Well said. SAO and ALO are a LOVE story between Kirito, Asuna and Yui. The only thing that can be said is that when they came together they began to trust each other.

The English dub for me. So many good animes are just given bad voice actors who don't even give the emotion that you hear in the original. Busou Renkin for example. If you ever watch it with the English dub, it just sounds like they reading off the paper. No emotion...terrible.


There are good dubs and bad dubs. I tried to watch the dub of Excel Saga tonight and the voices GRATED on the nerves in a big way. Very badly done. I am also not fond when a dub really changes the characters words and have no relation to what the characters said in a subtitles. Also when something is edited or censored for no good reason. Look at the Vandread episode of 'A Wonderful World'. The company that brought it to the US market replaced 'It's a Wonderful World' sung IN ENGLISH by a Japanese lady with a song that made no sense to the video. Then there was Hulu+ having the dubbed version of High School DxD uncensored, but the subbed version being censored. I would have thought it would have been the other way around. . . but what do I know?

Some people actually object to the idea of her being designed as a plot point to be achieved. By nature of her situation did she get demoted, and thus, weaker. Maybe not weaker in terms of her character, but people dislike the notion of turning any character, especially a main character, into a plot point/Stereotypical Damsel in distress. It might not bother you, but I could certainly see why it would bother other people.
