Take, for example, an anime based in a teenager highschool with a transfer student who meets another student, they eventually fall in love while another girl is in love with them, la de da de da.

There are many animes that fit into this category

For example?

Twin Star Exorcists
Sakurasou no pet na Kanojo (Anyone else love that one too?)

And more.

These types of things often have fictional parts twisted into them, such as for Twin Star Exorcists there are monsters named Kegare who you have to kill.

Now, I am fine with animes that are in this category, but one thing that really grinds my gears is unoriginal characters.

(Like if you agree. Shh. Just shameless advertising.)

I have 2, yes TWO challenges for you, just so people can either be prepared for cringe when they watch these Anime:

No.1: Give us all a guide on how to stop cringing at anime.
No.2: List some animes that you have encountered that involve these type of unoriginal characters.

Thanks!

Unoriginal is not bad.

I loved all the cliche characters in TSE and SNPNA

To be honest, most of the time it isn't. I completely agree with you on that! :P

Just those times where you have those really unoriginal ones that are so hard not to cringe at that you struggle.

Like encountering some edgy 11 year old Kirito wannabe.

Stop watching late night anime otaku pandering trash that just try to create a waifu of the season. Then you'll have nothing to cringe at.

Well... it's not exactly rare for people to date in high school... or in general.. lel

Unless you are just talking about dense MC tropes, etc.

Original character types are incredibly rare. More often than you may run into types that you personally haven't encountered before.

But if something makes you cringe, stop watching it.

1. Stop having unrealistic expectations.
2. If you find that you are not enjoying an anime, stop watching it.
3. Recognize that just because you personally didn't not enjoy it, that doesn't mean it's bad. It only means it's not to your personal taste.
4. Move on to the next anime.

I find the easiest way to avoid the problem is to never, ever cringe. Never even use 'cringe' as a descriptive. Write it out of your life.

It sometimes fits though. It's annoying when everyone starts to use it constantly though lol

More on point, it'd almost be more difficult to name 'original' characters. Are there any shows with 'original' characters? How are they less embarrassing than these 'unoriginal' characters?
