Why the hate for tentacles?
Haha seriously? Come come now it should be obvious.
how did i miss this?
why do you hate this?
They're to violent and gross for me. But it's not like a hate them with a passion they're just not what I'm into.
Okay... So Angelo does not like grotesque things I see.
exactly this. I especially can't stand the main character not making up his mind in harems and they then end with a non ending... no decision made... I'm like, great....... What the hell did I just watch this for?
I have noticed this seems to be a trend in anime adeptations of visual novels. almost as if they don't want to upset the fans for not picking the one they like... Like, I don't care if they don't pick the one I like. I picked tomoyo in clannad but in the anime they go with nagisa and I'm perfectly ok with that. it's one of my all time favoite anime because they picked a path and stuck with it. (Yes I know they have OVAs) but the main anime stuck with one heroine. ((holy crap I typed more than I thought))
All time things about anime that annoy the heck out of me...
1. Anime series that are not continued or left hanging for years or forever!!!
So many great series are left victim to nothingness, totally destroyed because the creators/ TPTB revert viewers to the Manga or something to that affect i.e. lack of funds, not enough sales, change of direction... really WTF!!!! For us connoisseurs who love watching anime because for the mere fact its easier to watch a 24 min episode/ 12-24 series then read through a Manga (just me folks, no disrespect to those of you who are Manga bound)... So many great anime I have watched over the years and then the series were ditched for just a one-off first season with nothing more to follow on with, leaving unanswered questions/ plots not fulfilled/ characters and arcs in limbo.... it should be a crime!!!! ESPECIALLY, WHY CREATE A SERIES JUST TO NOT FINISH IT!!!!
For the record, if I am one-day blessed to come into a large win-fall of money or overwhelming inheritance.. I pledge my commitment to pour my finance into completing many of the great anime series out there in the ANIMEVERSE that are deserving to be at least completed/ finished off with satisfactory conclusions of at least another season, like the following for example just to name a few i.e.
Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero
Snow White with the Red Hair
La storia della Arcana Famiglia
The Legend of the Legendary Heroes
2. Anime that is subbed....
Yes, yes I know most anime are converted from subbed to dub that's how we get what we get... but when some decent series out there are still not translated over; its like really!!! WTF!!!! Why discriminate against those of the populous of this world who are inclined to gravitate to dubbed only... COME ON PEOPLE, GET WITH THE PROGRAM!!!!
3. Anime (some) that have been made into live action movies...
Ok sure there are some anime that were able to pull it off... Death Note, Rurouni Kenshin... but really others like G.I.T.S... were totally ruined especially special mention of Major Matoko who should've been depicted more like the anime but Johansson I felt did not have the true spirit of how Matoko should've been and don't get me started on Bato's portrayal... Ahhhh!!!! There are a few other series out there in the ANIMEVERSE that were lost on the bad acting or lost in translation of how the anime was and so directors/ movie studios should've just left well alone... SO FRUSTRATING, ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!
Dragon Ball Evolution
Attack on Titan 1 & 2
Fist of the North Star
Blood: The Last Vampire
City Hunter (even though I am an all time fan of Jackie Chan)
I've felt this way, specifically for Rosario + Vampire. Spice and Wolf, too.
Seems a lot of people dislike harem. I used to like them, but it was only after watching Spice and Wolf that I realized I watched them for the romance. Harems in general take a few steps in romance for everyone, without actually getting anywhere, due to inconclusive endings or a self insert protagonist that is clueless just to fill the role of being an insert.
Harems like the one in R+V are different though, since the protagonist actually has been given a romantic goal (at least, in the anime). Also the same for Date a Live.
Equality in romance just does not belong . Those harem endings (as rare as they are) depress me.
The glorification/normalization of pedophilia and incest tbh. As a teenager when I first got into anime this wasn't really a big deal to me, but the older I get, the creepier it gets to look for anime to watch and have like 75% of it feature this. Especially the pedophilia. It's really gross to see that glorified not only in anime but in the anime community as well. Even when younger characters aren't sexualized in the anime itself, they are in like half of the fanart and other fan media :/
What's my least favorite thing in anime?
The fans and fanbases in general.
Also, I despise "anime elitists"
The fact that they accuse you of having "shit taste" is pretty funny considering their "tastes" are no better than yours.
Listen up: You don't have a degree or a certificate in whats best and worst, nor do you have the right to accuse someone of their "shit tastes" so stop acting like a retard.
Besides, the majority of anime shows are aimed at children in japan, hence the term shonen and shojo. So if you elitists are gonna get shitty over a japanese childrens cartoon, you seriously need help.
Cliff-Hangers, it gets irritating when a series ends on an unfinished ending.
The worst part is that they get no conclusion, like no OVA or another season just to finish the story.
A majority of anime does this and it sucks.
Also I suppose I hate the "Want to find out what happens?" read the manga/novel. Then again I can't blame them for advertising their product to increase sales.
Overuse of fan service and the ilk. Such as in "Gundam Seed" when the ship shutters in battle, and the captains breast jiggle. seriously is this the time and place.
Stereotypes! This includes completely wrong depiction of nuns and clergy in some Christian action anime, but also what seems to second generation stereotypes i.e. stereotypes based on stereotypes in American media as well as depictions of Japanese life which may become stereotypes Westerners will have of Japanese
I have to somewhat agree to this.
When I was younger, these types of things didn't phase me in the slightest. Maybe because I also was young, and saw it from a different perspective. But now that I'm almost in my late 20's, I find that I have become almost desensitized to these types of issues or topics, and that really disturbs me. Lol
I hadn't watched any anime in a while.. work, life, you know. I decided to watch Kill la Kill. I adore the art, I adore so many things about it, even though it has a lot of those controversial topics. But one scene in particular, (and I'm sure most people who have seen it are aware of which episode and scene I'm referring to) I was watching and I was like "what the hell?"
Of course, many of these things are derived from popular fetishes and things of the like. I begin to wonder, am I a creep? XD
We're all creeps in our own rights.
dude! you are ruining the surprise! *looks at new member*
uhhhm please dont mind what he said.
dont listen to that crazy talk and i apologize for his rude behavior. we are not creeps. *cough*

I suppose this is factual.
Haha, thank you for the warm welcome, friend.
