I love anime but there is one huge fundamental problem that it has. After finishing 77 anime series and over 2000 episodes of shonen i have gotten to the point were i cant watch most anime anymore. here is why

TALK NO KILL - this is when the MC decides not to kill his enemy but to talk to him and try to have him change his ways instead.

SPARING - when the MC spares his enemies.

and worst of all

CLEAN HANDS - when the writers of the show decide from the very beginning that there main character will never kill anyone no matter what.

Imagine any good movie. Now imagine that movie if the main characters never killed anyone. imagine that movie if the main characters decided to try and reform the bad guy instead. EXACTLY do you see how cheesy and lame it would be?

alot of anime creators have this idea of this noble, strong ,kind, perfect person that is even willing to try and save the biggest piece of shit you can think of. and in some cases it works but the problem is that more than half of anime seems to have this theme now days. and instead of it looking noble, strong and kind. it looks scared, cowardly and weak. it looks like the MC has no back bone it makes the MC look like a spineless wimp.

the only perfect case of this i can think of is Naruto. In naruto they do a perfect job. naruto has backbone and when he fights you he has the intent to kill. he has even killed a few people in filler episodes which are non cannon but still.

the only problem is that about half of anime has this theme now days. and once you have seen talk no kill for the thousands time it will make you go insane. One of the fundamental problems with it is that it restricts flow and storytelling. its also a giant let down you want that big piece of shit to get whats coming to him not a lecture instead.

but now im at this point were whenever i try a new anime half the time it pisses me off.

Do any of you also have this problem?

Did you somehow manage to watch 77 shounen without ever trying to get into a fresh genre?
If you want people to die, just look for anime with the gore genre lol

Dude ...chill... you will just get more frustrated.

Its an industry of money making man. Whatever makes money is exploited .

I also get annoyed by certain thing in anime and I for one pick and choose what anime I watch and do other things and not just anime.

you really, cant just stay to one genre its a given you will get bored or frustrated with it just try something else? Horror could work they tend to have people dying left and right.

77 anime series is hardly a good amount to judge anime with. It's paltry.

And a list of the 77 series would be helpful, ie link your MAL.
