Eromanga Sensei - Filled with cringe in the anime itself and its fanbase trying to defend this. The comedy was sub par, the animation had a ton of single frame pauses, music was only good in the opening and ending, not a fan of incest(it is and im sticking to it), the fan-service was board-line pedophilia, only elf-chan was cute all other girls I've seen better Im serious. And main male character was the usually unbearable enabler of a otaku and beta.



Well, glad to see someone said this. Incest is the least problematic, as I am a fan. I just dislike how perverted Masamune is off the bat towards his twelve year old sister, who happens to be an explicit erotic hentai artist.

Just...really.

Yes, never cringed at Dragon Maid, have not watched Chuunbiyou. Which may tie into the above statement, as you confess that its their serious parts that are bothersome to you, rather than the comedy. I could see why a part meant to be serious may seem downright cringe inducing, such as whether or not it misses it point or expects you to nod your head in agreement, but I disagree with the notion that comedy cannot be cringe inducing, if that is what you are saying.

Humor can be a way to tackle said uncomfortable topics, as well as be another lens for someone else to interpret it as humorousness, which may just be an outlying opinion being communicated to the audience. It is fairly possible that most people are a bit easily misled by the usage of a canned laugh track and a lighthearted music track being played to notice what is happening in said scenes. You can play it over a torture scene and some people would laugh regardless, which is an extreme example, but a frightening one of how miscellaneous features can otherwise affect our interpretation.

"It is all just a comedy" is not all that valid to me, especially after watching Todd Stolonz's Happiness, which is a dark comedy that is extremely uncomfortable to watch. That film also had a point, but...what am I saying?

Watamote may be even more cringe inducing when someone interprets it as a means to laugh at the situation of an adolescent girl going through a rough patch, and that does not seem funny to me at all. It seems cruel and sadistic. Expecting me to laugh at it may be the most discomforting aspect. I am not an asshole, and I have developed sympathy for Tomoko because I knew people like her, besides myself. It is straight up empathy when I imagine myself in similar situations, when the weight of the world's most basic expectations crushes one like a rock.

(Although I do not entirely interpret it as such.)


Ok thank you for clarifying. You're definitely right; comedy is not free from being cringe-inducing. Failed comedy (or anything really) can be very cringey or whatever else you want to call it for the person whose target it misses. A lot of the time that is pretty subjective though. If the comedy is plain bad, then sure, most people are going to cringe or dislike it or whatever. With something like Watamote, though, it mostly just depends on how the viewer feels about it. What I was saying is that I personally didn't find it cringey at all because the jokes hit for me. Maybe that makes me an asshole or maybe not. I can definitely relate to Tomoko on a personal level as I've gone through some of the same situations albeit to a lesser extent, but I could still find myself enjoying watching those moments. Now, I don't even like Watamote that much, since the jokes kind of got old by the end, and there was really nothing in the way of a supporting cast. I never found the jokes themselves cringey though, and that's just my personal opinion. I don't blame anyone else for feeling differently.


Indeed, humor is subjective. What one may find humorous another horrendous. Which ties into the earlier example of what is cringeworthy. Although, I think a fair runner up for it is Himegoto or Abunai Sisters.

Himegoto is basically 12 4 minute segments of a cross dressing guy called Hime being put into situation by an all female student council where he will be embarassed, often with a bulging panty flash or two. The premise being he is a feminine looking male who was in debt, before being "rescued" by said all female council and to work it off.

That is until a serious episode happened, in what you were having grievances about. In this episode, which is played seriously two men try to rape Hime, with the student council secretly looking from the bushes, intent on filming the act. It is halted by an outside party, where Hime calls them out on their shit. One or two episodes later, they apologize and he forgives them.

What?

Fuck you Student Council. A guy being put into this situations is no more funny than a female, and the fact they haven't been born with the slightest decency to film an actual rape for their own pleasure and amusement is simply appalling. This thing should have been instinctual, something they should have known well in advance, and he forgives them? No, fuck them. They are just as guilty.

Watamote
I facepalmed my way through this anime and in the end it wasn't even funny anymore. I only felt sorry for her.

Diabolik Lovers
Watched it because I thought it could be bad enough to be funny and it was. I'm still convinced the sound effect for the biting scenes was just a guy eating an apple.

Makuranodanshi aka Pillow Boys
I watched it for the same reason as Diabolik Lovers but couldn't make it past the first two episodes at first because of how creepy the guys were (no Merry, I don't want to to massage my butt ) . But I gave it another try and episode 3 didn't disappoint me. Pillow Boy of the week was a musician who played for me. But this anime has no soundtrack or sound effects. It's just a guy who brags about his skills combined with awkward silence.
Other glorious moments:
This super hot guy

Creep-twins
"A super energetic, hot 5-year-old" That's a quote from the shota episode. This description is really a part of the episode.
And in the last episode *SPOILER ALERT* Merry, the butt massager, is suddenly a kid/young teenager, then older again and then he turns into a sheep .

Btw, if you want to watch it don't forget to read the comments after every episode. They're hilarious.

I saw all these comments on Watamote and remembered this I started episode 1 and never finished. I couldn't remember why. So I went back and finished episode 1 and started on episode 2 and just gave up. A sack full of nope. I can understand the theory behind it: not everybody is beautiful or perfect in every way and we need to accept ourself, but it was so cringe-worthy that I couldn't watch it.

While I have cringed at a lot of shows, the one I remember doing so a lot would be Oreimo, and more specifically the second season. There wasn't much cringeworthy stuff in the first season, but the second season destroyed just about everybody's character, and that was something that made it tough to watch. Kyosuke was a great guy after everything he did in the first season to help out Kirino, but the second season took everything he built up and threw it out the window as he was simply a jerk without sensitivity. All for the sake of incest. And that scene where he punched his childhood friend was when the cringe factor reached its peak.
