I'm curious what kind of things fellow anime fans dislike in anime. This could be anything ranging from entire genres that you don't care for to specific troupes that immediately make you not want to finish the show.

For example, I don't like many harem/reverse-harem anime series. There are some good ones, but it seems like most have a stagnant plot that just repeats every episode with a different love interest and the consistently boring protagonist. As soon as I see that an anime series falls into the harem/reverse-harem category, I am reluctant to watch it.

So, what are some things that make you cringe when you see them in anime?

(I searched around a bit and didn't find a thread exactly like this one.)

^^^Great coordination, guys

I mentioned this in the "Things in anime you're bored of" thread, but I guess this thread is more applicable, so...

Repetitive flashbacks always drive me crazy. I mean, I get that a certain past event can impact a person. But do we really need to see said event every. single. episode? It's like, I get it, Deku wasn't born with a quirk, Atsushi's 'orphanage' was filled with assholes, and Kousei has mommy issues. Do you really need to remind me for the umpteenth time?

+1, also over-exaggerated lip-licking (usually done by a villain character before doing something bad). It's overused and off-putting.

Fan service, huge boobs, annoying voices, sometimes the style, (overly cutesy with weird looking eyes)






I sort of enjoyed clannad, though it was a bit confusing at times, but the art made me suffer

The accidental boob grab pratfall. It's lazy and so overdone.

Moe, fanservice and other fanboy pandering; yaoi and all other manner of fujoshi pandering; nearly every god damn show being about skool and teenagers; pleated mini skirts/skool uniforms; and the bitching about anything that doesn't fit into one or all of those categories.

I honestly think 'harem' is mostly just a barb thrown at a lot of anime just to discredit them. I've started wondering if almost any anime could be called a harem by this lax criteria if it didn't have equal number of male and female characters- i.e. even Ghost in the Shell can be called a [reverse] harem by haters due to the one female surrounded by multiple males situation...

Most of what gets me is too much fanservice I feel like I can't watch my anime without giant boobs flying in my face all the time. I don't like that when I tell people I like anime all they see is sexual stuff I think anime needs to tone that down a lot. Other than that there are little things that bother me like whiny characters but I think what I dislike the most is the ecchi stuff in anime and all the fanservice in anime especially when they aren't supposed to be a hentai like series.
