This. I love a good rom/com but can't stand the "misunderstanding" episodes. They're always the dumbest misunderstandings too. Like someone doesn't text the other person because their phone is broken, or female sees male hanging out with a girl who happens to be his sister and she gets all jelly.

"I'm in love with someone" is a real line that comes to mind. And they said it to the person they're in love with.

So much salt from people's complaints of anime. I could probably sum it up faster and shorter.

"Because; anime"

Anything in anime is there for a reason. But every trope is used, abused, and spent over and over....to the point the core reason that it is "just anime."

Kirito and characters like him.
Uninteresting, overpowered, and bland.
Taiga from Kuroko No Basket is a perfect example of the same type of shitty overpowered, uninteresting, and bland character.

Some are "bored" category, while others were there then continued being around and now become "hated":

- Female characters being pulled down (intellegence, skill, or physical strength) so that they don't overshadow the male MC.
- Focus with female characters being on their T&A
- Over-the-top fanservice that begs the question on where the line between regular anime and hentai is exactly.
- Same-sex pairings being teased without ever actually being explored or even having any real intention of going with them (even though some are better than the hetero)
- Male MC's (nothing wrong with them per se but 90% of anime = male MC's so its stale af)

I agree with another user about avoiding the anime that have these overused tropes. Honestly, I'm turned off by shows with the lame female side character that is there either for fanservice or solely as a love interest (I'm fine with her being a love interest later on, but atleast have a backstory and arc). If something bores me I stop watching. But that's kind of tiring if every synopsis that interests you turns out to have some kind of lame trope

Anime that starts out as adventure/comedy/whatever and turns into romance out of nowhere. I have nothing against romance anime but when I'm promised something else it almost feels like bait and switch. Even worse if it's super cheesy or a harem.
Most of the other stuff I can just avoid and ignore, it's when they sneak it in there that I really feel cheated

I'm getting tired of anime that have gaming settings or the story revolves around a video game.

As an old jaded anime fan, occasionally I'll see something in an anime that gets overused and it really starts to grind my gears. There are certain types of characters or ideas that get overused because they appeal to the fantasies of otaku and make them spend money on figures and other crap because they want a certain characters face on everything they can get.

The one that bugs me right now is incest fantasies, usually a case of "brother/sister but not blood related so we can be in love with each other without it being against all laws of life", it seems to be in so many shows and it's shows that even have a good plot and great animation so I want to watch it but I have to sit through some incest nonsense just to watch the damn thing.


When there´s a super dramatic moment/plot twist and they try to sneak in some fan service.

_Permanent God Mode

- Over-excessive censoring ( When it covers 2/3 of the screen)

Prolly lot more, but those are the ones that I can think of off the top of my head :p

Sometimes they could be fun too, though :)

More or less everything in Cockwork Planet.


This opinion makes my hole sad.


Things I'm tired of:

Guns being less useful than swords.

The main character using a sword, or using any melee weapon in a setting with near-modern or better firearms.

Characters not dying if there's an explosion or dust cloud created by an attack.

Characters not dying at all in a show that is heavy on life-or-death combat.

The main character going RRRRRRRGH and beating the bad guy through sheer force of will when their super moves collide.

Non-Japanese people being 90% blonde and virtually never dark-skinned.

Anime being set in Early Modern or New Imperialism Germany rather than Austria, the better Germany.

Pantsu and pantsu obsession (can you become tired of something that was dumb the first time?)

Minors refusing to drink by saying "I'm a minor" (this has to be a broadcast regulation in Japan)

Made up anime illness rather than real-world illnesses, in a realistic setting.

Romance anime that end the moment the couple confess their love for each other.

Romance never developing between the MC and a character who appeared later than episode 2 or 3.

Love at first sight (again, can you become tired of something that was dumb the first time?)

Hero/damsel romance rather than romance where the characters die in the trenches together.

Every single girl being in love with the same guy.


Things that actively annoy me:

Every single girl - or really any girl - acting like a bitch or a moron because she is in love with said guy.

Girls hitting the guy because she is "too emotional" or worse because some other girl sexually assaults him, because she is in love with the guy.

The girl sexually assaulting the guy and still being treated like a love interest rather than a sex offender.

The guy deliberately grabbing the girl's boobs in her sleep or something and still being treated like a love interest rather than a sex offender.

The guy accidentally coming into contact with the girls' boobs, in any situation, regardless of outcome. (This is like 300 negative points, holy shit)

One girl molesting another girl because she's mad the other girl has bigger boobs than her.

Hero/damsel romance rather than romance where the characters die in the trenches together, in an action anime.

One character being the obvious main character and the only person who achieves anything of note.

Butthurt about America nuking Japan even though firebombing killed more people.

America or Americans being dicks just 'cause rather than for valid or historically accurate geopolitical reasons.

The bad guy being forgiven despite being a mass murderer or something equally bad.

Anime that are really good but never animate the entire source material.

The main character turning into the villain for a really stupid reason, remaining the villain for AN ENTIRE SEASON, and being forgiven in the end despite admittedly having killed millions of people.

This...I hate how formulaic romance anime is. You can always tell who the MC will get with no matter how many potentials are introduced. (Looking at you Nisekoi)

I honestly think that people liked Oreimo so much because they really did not believe the show would follow that same formula and go full incest so it actually seemed like the others had a chance.

I also would like to see more of the journey that the couples face after being together(Clannad After Story, Golden Time are a good and decent example.)
