I've often wondered why the beams don't just pass through each other. It strains belief.

The two attacks blocking each other is not the effect I would expect either, I would see more something like the two guys being hit at the time, or at least some kind of ricochet.



Maybe anime beams are secretly made out of water!

I guess it would have to be the whole which beam is stronger thing.

Because it seems to less often come down to who can tactically make better use of such power, but more who can limit break first. lol

Esp. Male protagonists that can't be honest with every other female main characters and does stuff behind the backs of all of them without any communication or time related help

They all irk me, here is the level/order in which they do:

Wimpy Male Character
(It is painfully obvious when a main character of this description only has one purpose to the entire story extend this piece of %$&* plot-line for as long as possible with an unanswered and vague ending)

Accidental Sexual Assault
(Seriously, how do you accidentally grab someones breasts while falling? and the girl never screams in pain!; I imagine that this would hurt like &*$%)

In fights, the stronger clashing power wins
(the first image in my mind is a high energy blast attack [ex: kamehameha]. This cliche is not only over-abundant, it also screams extreme laziness. I prefer a more inclusive and epic overcoming of a greater force [ex: Minotaur fight from 'dungeon ni deai'])


Flat Tsundere Characters
(why is it that just about every one is flat?)

Sex Obsessed female character
(while I don't mind this one as much, I will admit that when a female character is obsessed, it is usually over-abundantly so, which can make it extremely annoying at times).

Wimpy male lead and sex obsessed female character are probably tied for number one.

Accidental sexual assault- like yeah I will bump into you but what are the chances that I will land on top of your face with my crotch area conveniently aligned to your mouth? @@

I don't know why but I really get rubbed the wrong way by characters that have an overly exaggerated oral fixation. Not just in anime but in all media. I've never met a person IRL that ALWAYS has to have something in their mouth, its just unrealistic and annoying. In the same vein, characters that have to constantly be eating and when they aren't shown eating they are hungry.

Writers need to be willing to take more risks.

It feels like writers can't be bothered to include tactical ingenuity in fights, like they constantly are writing themselves into corners.

Probably writers are just depending on the archetype to give them depth rather than actual storytelling.

Definitely the wimpy male. At least those other stuff have some merits when used properly in moderation. But the wimpy male lead doesn't exactly bring anything to the table and gets irksome in the process.

I would say the sex obseessed female character because once is enough when exposing the character but after one to many times it gets annoying. I would personalaly feel as if this character is not getting any or thats all the character thiks about

I haven't seen too many anime with the option from the poll that irks me the most but 'Wimpy male lead who just can't decide' grinds my gears i sometimes find myself yelling inside my head pick an option you moron.

The last three are all terrible. Probably the whole accidental pervert thing. It's done way too often.
