Harem. Aka anytime it's bland self-insert male MC with a team of like 4-25 women who inexplicably are only attracted to him even if he's a total douche.

Besides that really really objectifying 'yuri', like Valkyrie Drive, that is obviously just to titillate men who like to see women molest each other.

While I certainly am far from avoiding it, action can put me to sleep, I'm generally disinterested in it. I'm more interested in the characters and their dynamics than I am with who punches hardest.

1) What is a genre that you wouldn't read or write?

I think my response answers this.

2) What genre do you actually enjoy?

Short answer: Yuri that isn't like I described above.

Long answer: I enjoy every genre to an extent, I see merits to all of them, even if I read some more than others.

I avoid yaoi or high school giggle anime it annoys me. I also will not watch all of it if it bad by the second or third ep.
i become really annoyed by high pitch whinny girls or over ego blown boys in anime.

The only genres I really avoid are standard harem and blatant excuse for fanservice-type ecchi. I can tolerate romance/reverse harem/slice of life if the premise and characters are good, but that's pretty rare. I prefer action/adventure since the story is typically much more interesting to me.

Yaoi, Yuri, Tragedy, Drama and Sci-fi.

This doesn't mean I hate all series with these tags. For instance Star wars is an example of a Sci-fi that I personally love.

I don't like yaoi or yuri or harem series. Oh, and westerns.

I love romantic comedies. (Right now I'm watching My Love Story!! It's funny.) Or just comedies in general.
I think Skip Beat! has the perfect mix of everything I love, especially the manga.)

There are 3 things I hate in this world.
Bad engrish
Feminist propaganda
And more bad engrish

and... bell peppers!

5 points if you get the reference

I also don't care for most romance novels, but I'm young adult male, clearly not the target audience.

I like being sad (in the way that sad anime makes me anyway). If everything always goes well, its hard to feel attached and to care about the good things. I don't get a lot of strong emotions out of real life most of the time, but a good story is an opportunity for that with out any consequences. A story like Narcissu (excellent sad visual novel, and its free and cross platform.) can really help me appreciate the simple things, both in the story and in life. Sad stories also serve as a reminder that there is suffering in the world, and it happens to good, strong people who we should appreciate; I fine joy and strength shallow if I don't consider the suffering.

Also emotion helps remind me I'm not sociopathic. I tend to be rather cold and rational and spending a weekend crying through Narcissu helps that not make me feel too inhuman (which is an actual issue for me at times).

That said tragedy as a genera sucks. Something thats purpose is creating sadness is worthless, but its good as a theme in a larger work.

As for Genres I stay away from, bara is probably it I guess. I used to avoid yaoi but I ended up finding a couple of decent shows there, and the same happened with sports anime. I still generally avoid echi, sports and tournament unless I have reason to think they are good though.

Guro. The only genre I cant stand.

Oh yea, if you have a strong stomach go ahead. If not I don't suggest reading/watching it.

I avoid anything that involves Yaoi even in the slightest. I think there was some anime called No6 or something like that and one episode was getting way to close to Yaoi so I dropped it. Just how females typically don't like Yuri, I don't like Yaoi. I also tend to avoid Horror for horror sake. If it has a good plot, I will watch it, but if the main point is horror, I'll pass. Another was very border-line for me.
