What sucks about anime/manga?
Posted 6/5/15 , edited 6/5/15
We all love anime, right? Sometimes it's hard to be subjective with something you love. But I think we can try.

What sucks about anime or manga?

I've been watching anime for a long time and there's only thing that really annoys me...

The lip/mouth movements. They're pretty ridiculous, but usually we arent paying too much attention to them with subtitles being read. Our Western animated movies/shows have pretty much perfected the art of mouth movement with sound, while anime still has random twitches that don't sync. I know the reason behind it, but it could be better for sure.

What about you? Can you be subjective about anime and say what sucks about it?

Failure to follow through and finish.

Japan never finishes their anime runs I swear. Or the authors paint themselves into a corner and take a cop-out ending from left field if they don't just kill it completely.



My rant of the day. Don't get me started on LN and editors.

Bad filler is always an annoyance though it doesn't feel as common to me as it used to. I'm not sure if that's because I'm just picking the right shows to watch or if it really is getting better.

Also, repetition and predictability can be bad. For all of the series out there it often feels like there are so many that use the same basic storylines and the same basic characters. Even when there's a twist of some kind you can often see it coming a mile away just because you've basically seen it already. In some ways this makes series that do actually do things differently (or even just do the same thing but do it exceptionally well) stand out more.. but it would be nice if rising above the predictable and mediocre wasn't something to be so excited by.

There's certain characters in anime I don't like. Villians and antagonists we need obviously. But why do we need characters that are annoying and don't serve much of a purpose? Lizzie from Black Butler is a fine example. She is the anime embodiment of annoying-as-hell.

I agree with this. If ever an anime is going to just going to screw up, it's generally the ending.

Also, I hate it when every single female character falls for the main guy.

Sorry folks, but on account of me deleting some off-topic bickering, we may run into the "out of order" posts problem and some posts not being visible until enough new posts are made to bump us to the [at time this was posted] invisible next page. Sorry about that. Hope it doesn't end up too confusing.

I have the same problem with ice cream and laundry detergent. I swear everything is so sexist these days.

Not sure why mine was deleted...considering all I said was the following.

The wait week to week for episodes is what sucks.
