    As the title suggests, what makes you put a character on your shitlist?!
    If it's not a simple definition, please elaborate!~
    Share your salt and let us engage in hatred!~ ^_^

    Going first, I hate:
    • Idiots. Fuck them. Even worse is an idiot that drags others along due to their idiocy.
    • Perverts. Gross and slimy.
    • Useless. If you don't contribute to the goals of those in the show, then get out of the way and stay off the screen. Even worse when they do nothing but whine about how weak they are and/or a "redemption/training arc" is like "Look at all the progress I made! Now I'm as strong as the MC and his friends were in the first episode~" (Looking at you, Sakura Haruno, Tamaki Kotatsu, half of Strawhat crew)
    • Bitches. Arseholes who act like complete dickbags to the good characters and supposedly we're supposed to like them for it?? (Looking at you, Senjougahara, Erina Nakiri, Ouran twins, Oni FRANXX)
    • Moe bait shit child. Elaborating, the characters you see that are so obnoxiously written to make them look and behave cute that it feels like a pop-up ad. The kind that Japan seems to include just to help the declining birthrate by being like "Isn't this so cute? Don't you want to protect this?" It feels so patronising to have this shit shoved in my face, to the point where I want to take a bat to the character's face and be the thing that the dumbass audience wants to protect the character from. (Looking at you, Anya Forger, Weine DanMachi)
    @Supernatural-Knight @kaylentine @shedninja get in here you fuckfaces!
    Also @DubAnimeLover tagging you too because I see you around but feel I don't know you well enough to call you a fuckface

    y u tag me when we had this entire conversation in person LOL

    My list looks almost exactly like yours, except replace "perverts" (which I sometimes hate, but mainly if they have other annoying personality traits) with "overly optimistic/happy characters that are obnoxiously/unrealistically never sad." Their joy enrages me. I want them broken down and suffering.

    I feel like you forgot Barakamon's Naru. This was the first character I saw you hating of this description. Still find it hilarious.

    Umm.... people tend to say I'm like this. Should I be concerned? My mothers says I'm never pissed off because I definitely don't tend to show such emotions. Perhaps I'm acting, sure. But I'm never 100% angry.
    This part though. I always love watching characters break down. Fun stuff.

    But loli is alright as long as no one is trying to sleep with them right? Plus its proven, little girls are scarier than 20+ year olds.

    So my list of hated character antics:
    1. Dull characters- Characters with the personality of a cardboard cutout. Their bland and boring. Their zero reaction to anything annoys the hell out of me. If you're happy or annoyed then show it.
    2. Overpowered characters- I don't want to watch a show about a guy that can do anything. Watching them grow and struggle is half the fun. Being able to do anything first try. Piss off. That's not what being human is about.
    3 Harem mains- Zero redeeming qualities but all the girls want them. Am I jealous? Maybe. But when the guy has absolutely nothing going for him and everyone still likes him, just why? School Days and Ichigo 100% I'm looking at you.
    4. Moeblob- The pretty girl that doesn't do anything. The girl from haruhi is a good example of the useless level.
    5. Haruhi- pretty self explanatory here.

    Brb, I'm booking a flight to Sydney just to add some suffering to your life.

    No, that's a good thing, I much prefer that trait in real people rather than constantly pessimistic people! In fictional characters though they should entertain me with their suffering. Or at least be a more normal level of happy lol.

    Some of those are anime rather than character...
    Your taste is acceptable!

    You fool! Even this was planned!

    I considered writing her but judged her too irrelevant to the current year.

    Ah, Sabre.

    But, isn't it cathartic jumping straight to the good shit without having to sit through a bunch of bullshit? It's the entire hook of Overlord.

    Araragi's a creep but at least he helps the girls.
    I feel like I've said this before, but I want an anime where it's a regular harem, but then the girls all realise the guy has nothing going for him and ditch him.

    I love that your 5th hated trait is just a character.
    @kaylentine tell him about how you appreciate Haruhi now

    Alas, it is true. Upon rewatching I can appreciate her as a plot element/force of nature and since I've stopped really thinking of her as a human I don't hate her!

    Irasshai. That's an expensive trip just for some suffereing.
    Phew. Wait, so no visit? Have you looked up the series Happy Sugar Life? Its different type of nature might just be your thing.
    Traitor. Meanwhile I'm perfectly happy here never to rewatch it again. Although Sugita is a pretty good reason....

    I dislike Overlord. Especially after the lizard part of S2. Dark stuff immediately after that was a bit better but not redeeming enough. Haven't gone anywhere near S3.
    Araragi is voiced by Kamiya Hiroshi. That VA gets high praise from me so I'm not complaining. Plus its hardly a harem. The girls aren't fighting for his attention romantically.... maybe.
    Yeah I remember you saying that. Could be funny. Although you'd have to sit through all the crap for that twist ending and by then I don't think it'd be worth it.
    Had to since it was your thread and all.

    This was also planned. You may clap now.

    You mean Crispin Freeman and Johnny Yong Bosch and Wendee Lee and Michelle Ruff and Stephanie Sheh are pretty good reasons, right?

    That's fair. The lizards were easily the worst part of the entire franchise. In my honest opinion, season three really does pick back up. Especially the climax. Fuck what a climax. Season four is also going pretty well and it's nice to watch it airing again.

    Senjougahara and Hanekawa and Nadeko and possibly Shinobu would beg to differ.

    Perfect.

    You're absolutely dreaming if you think I'd go anywhere near this franchise again without Sugita. I'll give you Crispin Freeman, nothing against him. But Bosch I lost all interest in after Ichigo. Terrible character.
    Sugita alone isn't enough though. There'd have to be more and I'm not looking.
    Of course they were. Weak mobs took the spotlight simply to show off how overpowered the main group is. And not even the most overpowered ones but a measly underling. Zero attachment meant zero gain from their developments.
    I don't think I want this franchise to continue. If I watch 3 I eventually have to watch 4.
    Hmm were they? I don't remember. He had made is choice so he's not a total arse of a harem lead. Not like he's stringing them all along. Although that bath scene with Shinobu.....
    Thanks.

    That's your brother's fault for making you two watch the dub of Bleach. And he's not a terrible character.

    And the fucking furry romance. Bleh.

    Just 'cause a girl is chosen doesn't mean it's not a harem. He could still ask out any of those girls and they'd say yes.

    Yes it is his fault. We started the dub because he got the DVD before we swapped to sub only. Huh.. I'm sorry but anyone that wants to fight a bad guy on even footing, even if it means disfiguring himself, because his alter beat them is a terrible character. I also don't like how he is essentially a ditto using transform to become what his opponent is. Although he isn't as bad a character as Rukia and Orihime. Why does the show need two damsels in distress?
    I thought I said lizard sex enough regarding this show for that to be assumed immediately. Guess not. Were we really meant to give a shit about mobs we don't know? Isn't that why a nameless army was killed so the number of dead could increase.
    True, however the fact that he is better than that because a choice is made is what I value. If a decision has been made then at least a harem isn't all that bad. Almost makes it a standard romance. Although Monogatari franchise has nothing standard about it. Shaft had a lot of stylistic choices for that show and that's the main reason I put up with it for so long.
