Basically what the topic title says.


At what point would you stop watching a series or refuse to watch a series based on certain elements that not only question your morals, but also just flat out make you feel uncomfortable?

For me, it would be extreme, extreme violence, such as guts spilling out, limbs being chopped off, organs being ripped out, etc. I would also not watch anything that shows someone deriving sexual pleasure from extreme mutilation and abuse, such as guro or ryona (girl getting beat up). I'm also not a fan of parent-child incest.

I'm all for open-mindedness and creativity, and I'm certainly not against people who create/enjoy anime with those above themes, but I personally just cannot sit through them. I kind of envy people who can, though, you must either have a very high tolerance for graphic themes or are just kind of morally ambiguous. (In a good way?) :D


So...where would you draw the line?

Wont watch Hentai with lots of rape or if it has a gross fetish like scat or pissing >.>

Everything else is fair game for me to try. I love watching stuff most people couldnt manage xD

any obvious hentai of any kind, I suppose. i read To-Love-Ru Darkness for a time, and that's really borderline. no yaoi for me, either.

Oh look. People will draw the line at hentai. That's like saying you'll watch all kinds of movies but not pornos. Obvious answer is obvious.

Any hentai with anything non-female-human involved.

Instead of focusing on extremities and morals, I ignore everything under a 7 on MAL. I think I've kept with that statement for a while now, at least 2 years and counting.

Other than that, there's really nothing else I actively try to ignore. I do have a common dislike in romantic comedies that have a shitty main and harem, but there are often other redeeming qualities in exceptions that I do get the chance to watch.

I guess one other thing I ignore is just about everything that have more than 100 episodes no matter how good they are (looking at you Gintama & One Piece). They are probably animes I know I'd like a lot if I do watch it, but I just don't like the concept of never-ending shows.

Hentai sometimes has slightly more of a storyline than porn so i wouldnt make it a direct connection.

The line between shounen ai and yaoi. I'm fine with just about any other hentai sub-genre other than guro/scat.

Certain cgi'd Animes as well.

Sexism. When an anime strikes me as straight up sexist, I drop it. No questions asked.

I wont watch if the art is bad against my tastes usually out of being really old. Yet this rule is flexible if its really good so thats why i didnt mention it before, i can make exceptions for it.

First, get your typos at least to an understandable degree.

Second, opinions. My tastes follow the aggregates more often than not. You, quite obviously, don't. So let's leave it at that.

Eh, I know a friend that exactly does this. He refuse to watch Gurren Lagann even though he likes the mecha series overall.

Well for me... Definitely do not want to watch anime that show everything(nudity), animes that have no plot or meaning, and i dont especially dislike magical girl animes but I dont really watch them. Oh i probably wont watch an anime if it has no japanese voices and is only dubbed. Other than that anything goes haha....

I really dont understand why nudity would bother someone unless they are watching with their parents
