Fillers and rushed stories. Also, fans that say that an anime sucks without a viable reason.

Gawd I hate fillers -___- and rushed stories. The only anime I say sucks, is Persona 4.
Sure, I've only watched 5 episodes, but comparing it to the game? God, it's dreadful.

Surprised nobody hasn't mentioned this already.

One of my pet hates with some anime is a generally dislikeable cast.
Wherein none of the cast be it main, support or miscellaneous characters warm up to me at all or spark my interest in how the rest of their character may develop.

Because that's a rare occurrence. That only happens when a writer willfully makes a cast full of dislikable characters like School Days, Gilgamesh, and White Album, at which point is arguable that those characters are what drives the store. The other time the majority of the cast is dislikable is when someone confuses not liking characters with said characters being dislikable.

I can't stand the generic norms many anime seem to have inherited over the last few years. The worst by far are the recent harems ¬¬ Honestly it's incredible how many "normal high school boy completely oblivious to the 5 woman madly in the love with him" there are ;-;
Even the girls all seem to fall into the "a shy girl, an energetic girl, a girl with large bust and a girl with flat chest" all who seem to have some kind of tragic past that this "normal" high school boy must help them with. I honestly don't understand the appeal of using a repetitive template for all of these shows.

I personally would like to see more shows like Clannad and ef-. They at least gave each character some kind of unique back story and personality that didn't necessarily have to be some kind of tragic accident P:

Also i'll just throw in when an there isn't a proper ending *stares at deadman wonderland*

I hate the handful of shota animes like Mamoru-kun and Kanokon that have a young prepubescent boy and a teenage girl as the main couple. They feel so wrong to me, I can never enjoy these kinds of shows. I can take yaoi, yuri, lolicons, ecchi or anything else fine but can't stand shota

@Stark700: Agreed. Fillers -_- awful...

I know sometimes they need to put in episodes that aren't about the main story....which is ok...but it makes the anime longer *sigh*

Then again it does add new characters into those few fillers, but then we never see them again >.<

I'm not sure if someone else posted this, but in almost every anime the villain is a super over powered, meglomanical, highly insensitive, manipulative and disrespectful prick who loves to remind the antagonist(s) of how helpless they are before his awesome might and how only he is fit to rule/poses said power/or whatever. It's cliche to the point of irritation and frankly, its kinda one sided and two dimensional.

I'm sure its been posted, but it gets on my nerves when a new student(usually a girl) walks into class and everyone is like "she's so pretty!" even though she doesn't look much different from all the similarly drawn classmates/characters.

The main villain won't be very effective for the plot if it doesn't have some combination of those traits you call irritating and cliche. What do you propose as an alternative for stories that use villains and heroes? Is it also cliche for anime to have people walk upright and talk out of their mouths?

Sigh...you seem to like just disagreeing with people for the sake of it it seems. Perhaps you share those same traits with said characters and are merely a one dimensional being yourself. And to answer your question, I'd like to see a little more realism, as it were. Cause "evil" people are rarely evil to that point. They are a mix of good and evil. Grey, like most things truly are. Sorry your view of the world is so black and white, I feel sad for you.

My view of the world has nothing to do with it and if it did you'd have to prove that the powers that be are not and have never been megalomaniacs, manipulative, and insensitive. That sir, would be quite the feat. But even with all those traits the villains that have them in stories are rarely completely evil, unless you're referring to simple villians from Disney films. In anime however, villains typically are morally grey.

Fictional stories are not realistic. You simply can't have a story about super-powered individuals and have the main villain be weaker in power or resources than the main hero. There would be no conflict as the hero could remove whatever threat that villain posed without effort, kind of like Superman vs random-thug-on-the-street.

Fillers. Not unless they're short (1-3 episodes) and are actually entertaining. Then they're okay. But fillers that drag on forever is... blagh.

I'm also cool with most ecchi, but I can't stand excessive censoring. Trust me when I say I'm not watching for the mosaics.

Nope, that'd be too easy. They have to describe every little detail. Villains are especially compelled to describe, after all they can't lose. So they might as well tell the heroes or let them figure out their super-powered flaw. After all they can't lose. /sarcasm.

This is an excellent thread on what not to do 95% of the time if you want to stay original, I can't help but agree with most of the posts here. Still, when one of those annoyances come I typically tune it out and go back to enjoying whatever I was watching.

Also, I get sincerely annoyed when an anime finishes but only covers part of a manga. I also dislike when said series does a poor job of wrapping up the show.

Also while it annoys me when people describe their powers in battle, it really is just a lazy way of getting the audience to understand what's going on. Darker than Black is the perfect example(to me at least) on how to introduce powers without going "HEY MY POWER DOES YADA YADA YADA, I HOPE YOU DON"T TAKE ADVANTAGE!"

Nobody is trying to stay original. The people that make anime/manga were inspired to do so by anime/manga they saw as kids and they pay tribute to stories of the past with things like homages and using various ideas from those older shows. ofc doing that causes "cliche" topics like this from the peanut gallery.

plus, at this point in time, nothing is truly original - everything comes from something else via inspiration or downright exploitation - the nature of art/music/anime/fashion and everything else...so why not just enjoy what you enjoy and not pick everything to pieces? the key to great anime/manga is creating a truly moving and well written story line....

You're pretty much spot-on with Anime Name. He does seem to just go around to topics for the sake of disagreeing. It's a form of trolling, especially in a topic like this which is everyone simply stating their opinions and since we're all human, we are not all going to have the same view points.

You can disagree with opinions bro. However calling people names and insulting me is a form of saying you have more right to state your opinion than I do. Not having the same viewpoints means disagree from time to time.

I would agree with you on this if this was a thread in which that made sense, but you're going and telling people "Your opinion is wrong". This thread was made for people to express what THEY PERSONALLY do not like in anime. Like, what THEY avoid. So it's personal, you can't say that someone is wrong for disliking certain elements of a series.

I also was not calling you names. I said you were trolling, which seems to be the case.

I asked the person I quoted how can a writer make a story with heroes and villains without having the main villain being in a more powerful position than the hero. That guy isn't "wrong" for not liking it but I wondered if he was up to the challenge to tell a story that didn't use the cliche he is sick of. I never said he should feel that way or he should watch more of the crap he doesn't like. You've missed the entire point of comments by not even thinking about the questions I raise.

Being personal doesn't make an irrational opinion from being any less irrational.

Screaming your move/attack like it'll make it ten times stronger
Screaming in anger and suddenly pwning the bad guy
Battles that span way too many episodes
Senseless fighting
Magical girl shows that have to show the entire transformation scene every single time they transform
Magical girl shows where the girls wear ridiculously short skirts. Have some modesty pl0x
Girls in general that wear ridiculously short skirts, especially school girls, and especially when it's based in Japan. So unrealistic. No school in real life Japan would let their students wears skirts right up to their ass.
Fanservice
Everytime the good guy is going to get pwned by bad guy, but oh wait! They have an overpowering move that 'they forgot' and kill the bad guy instantly, or when they randomly pull a move that will pwn out of their ass. It. Is. Ridiculously. Stupid.
Gravity defying boobs. They seriously do not need to be THAT huge. Almost every anime has this.
Character bleeding out ten gallons+ of blood and not dying
Female characters just for the sake of moe.
Harems. Some harems make no sense, and about ten girls fighting over for one whiny wimpy balless boy. That just defies reason. And even more so when all the guy wants is to go back to his boring old life. Too many anime like this
When a girl is naked and the boy 'accidentally' sees them, and the girl just screams, slaps, calls him pervert but forgives him and falls in love with him anyway. The overuse of this is just stupid.

while im not opposed to fanservice it is a problem when its the only thing a show has

when people beat around the bush in a romance anime and dont get to confessing till the last episode

predictability is sometimes annoying

the thing i hate most is when shows end too soon, sometimes i just cant get enough of certain characters or shows for that matter.It pains me when these shows only have 12 episodes or cant get more than 1 season (chihayafuru might be an example of this)

Fanservice is a big one. If it's done right then obviously I don't mind it. But when it's hidden into action anime and shown at all the wrong times, it gets very annoying.

Another is cliches, particularly romance cliches. I don't dislike cliches as much as I do fanservice because, let's face it, almost every anime is going to have them. But they're still a pain. Guys walking in on girls in the shower, getting slapped, apathetic main characters(?), seeing love interest with another girl (or boy) and getting the wrong idea, etc, etc.

The whole harem thing, while entertaining, is pretty ridiculous sometimes.

How most MCs always have some grand weird revelation. A good example would be when a male MC declares his love for some chick completely out of nowhere.

I pick my animes carefully and I hardly ever get terribly dissatisfied about it..

But there is one small thing that really pisses me off in about most anime...

The fact that about 99.9% of animes I watched have official pairings which includes the female being older than the male.. I mean seriously,why are the manga/anime creators are soo interested in making the male character interested in older women..

Its just my opinion but you can't deny the fact that alot of the animes nowadays makes the girl older than the guy in their romantic relationship. Not that im against it,but its just irritating..

That's funny because other people remark about how lolicons and pedos are in every anime. Man, if only someone would organize a meeting of Exaggerators Anonymous to keep everyone on the same page.

The fans; mainly the dumb ones. Seems like every forum has something bad about it.

But maybe it's just the fact most people are idiots so that applies to anime fans by default. Such is life.
