Can be a big thing or a little thing, but it should be something that you either want/try to skip or what bothers you enough to make you not want to watch further.

Crying babies and extremely short haired girls (Railgun that lvl 1 girl) for me.

Pathetic characters really REALLY infuriate me. It's a completely new type of anger to me.

I am talking about charaters like Yuki from Mirai Nikki. Yuki has all these people working there asses off and dying for him and what does he do. He lets his pathetic side take over or something. Yuki just start crying and collapses, my FUCKING god! It's not neccesarily because others are helping him it's just, someone is trying to kill you get the fuck up and do something. You fucking loser!

After looking for some memes I found that for Yuki's sake it was really part of the character, but nonetheless I don't mind these type of charaters dying. This shit ruins shows for me so I am trying to brush it off or get used to it but it's damn hard.

I am convinced there is some personal shit behind this anger, but I am yet to find what it is.

Underdeveloped generic copy and paste Characters, or underdeveloped in general.

Fantasy with shit Worldbuilding.

Romance shows that are only...will they...nah...10 episode later...still not....24 episode oh finally some development, of course if they have a reason for not doing it its fine but stuff like Nisekoi makes me angry.

Shows that undercut dramatic moments with comedy.

Shows that treat their audience like some idiot.

Straight in your face incest, nisemonogatari is a great example, I watched it gritting my teeth. I just don't like it.

1. Garbage Characters - 98% isekai and light novel adaptations
2. isekai
3. pretentious plot - many LN adaptations
4. fantasy with garbage world building - Made in abyss and again most isekai
5. Lolis and "cute" anime girls
6. unnecessary fanservice

Really good shows that started out great and have good potentials then the budgeting thing happened, usually around episode 3, and the animation turns really cheap and bad.

Second guy syndrome in shoujo anime or manga.

When a character won't kill no matter what ( I don't care if it's a shounen or it's because the morals of the character, it's just ridiculous given the situations that those characters are in, Trigun as an example, a master gunman that is fighting for his life everyday)

And this is even worse, when someone is fighting and he/she/them don't stop shouting ''AAAAAAAAAAAA'' most likely to happen in shounens and the most recent example for this is Gintoki vs Shinsuke, I was liking the shogun assesination arc so far and had watched all the previews chapters of gintamaº within a week, but that fucking fight had me to stop watching that season for a while

- Eye patch girls, and worse, anime girls that have one of their eyes closed all the time. I don't know why, but it "triggers" me to no end. Like this thing from Girls und Panzer.


- Characters falling sick the very next day after getting wet in rain.

- Male characters that speak like a girl and have effeminate body language and even facial expressions. Not sure if it's because the animators are just used to drawing female characters, or because the writers themselves are women, but it really annoys me when that happens.

- Characters rambling exposition at each other, when everyone present there already knows what they're talking about.

- Bland directing and cinematography. I can't stand anime that tell their story through just boring rambling dialogue and expositions, with next to nothing interesting going on visually.

More prevalent in manga I guess, but sex scenes. I hate Western media for the need to shove sex and sexual stuff into everything that's not for kids, so when Japanese things do it as well I'm like no thanks

I agree. I make it a rule to avoid stuff with sex in it.

shows with characters i don't care about
if i literally could not care less if the characters died or ceased to appear, that's a bad sign

(on the other hand, some bad animes would be slightly more interesting if you just killed off a character, like imagine killing off sagiri in ermomanga sensei lmao)

I get this isn't a discussion thread, but I just wanted to point it she does to mimic Japanese samurai stereotypes with having one eye closed.

The high pitch voice girl kawaii desu etc girl, the dumb loli with a cute voice.

That type of character makes me want to quit some anime, and evn more when they get sexualized.

Loli are the cancer of anime ! I said it !

Yuri/Shoujo-ai with a male gaze that's creepy and often nonconsensual. Women/girls being sexualized/brutalized/killed senselessly. Weak-ass male characters that are boring as hell and have a big breasted harem that loves him for no reason. Anime that has all its female characters looking the same.

BASICALLY MEN.

Fully agreed. The problem is that sex sells, so some artists just shove fan service into their pieces. That is unfortunate, I'd say. Surely there is a public for that, though it shouldn't necessarely be an inclusion.

1. When MC starts falling in love with the person who abuses/harasses/rapes him/her. That's my biggest turn off.

2. Basically this:

3. When a fujoshi character shows up, even worse if she happens to be the MC or a part of the main cast.

Terrible CGI
Generic plots that try to take themselves seriously
Incest (Not the jokingly implied type that we often see)
Asshole MC who's just an Asshole for the sake of being one
Over utilization of Ecchi solely for the purpose of fan-service --> Just takes away from shows
Actually lewding lolis
Surprise Yaoi; I don't care if they joke about, but if it's full on Yaoi without warning it's just not for me
Hardcore Tsundere's to the point where they are completely unlikeable
Any Yandere
Harems with bad writing that try to take themselves seriously
Shounen with garbage animation

I don't know, there's a lot

-visual novel adaptations. that is not to say i never enjoyed any, but they are mostly garbage
-generic shitty character designs. nothing unique going on, mass produced garbage (a1 is most often guilty of this) revolting
-a lot of early-mid 2000 artstyle (stuff like kanon, onegai teacher or gundam seed)

Because OreGairu isn't a Harem when there is only one real girl Isshiki Iroha and then other side characters :P

But in actuality, I quite like the writing and relate a lot Hachiman as a character as well because people thought I was a pessimist in high school for having a similar outlook on life as Hachiman, but I always just thought I was being realistic. Also, Yui and Yukino both have their own backstories and reasons, they don't just like Hachiman because "OMG HE'S SO HOT! HE'S AN ATHELETE! HE'S SO COOL!"

If you think OreGairu has bad writing then that's just a matter of opinion, everything is subjective and I, on the other hand, happen to like it quite a lot!

yah, that was mostly in jest, I don't hate the show even though I don't paricularly like it (at least not the second season), but I would definitely label it as a harem that takes itself seriously and that's why I couldn't stop myself from making that comment :P
won't comment on its writing, I don't particularly mind it, I just dislike the characters and the heavy drama it became in second season.

Double standard much

You're one to talk considering having double standards is one of your defining traits. You're the one who has boobies all over your profile but get butthurt when men are treated the same way. Or even if an attractive male character or female targeted work even exists, period. If you yourself didn't have double standards, you would either be fine with both existing even if one isn't to your taste, or hate both.


OT: CGI, modern isekai, little girls with smug, punchable faces, mecha.

- bad storytelling.
- +18 scenes.
- bad drawing.
- when alot of scenes apperes in like so many animes, this sometimes makes me predict what's coming next which is so annoying!
- stalling the events.

Voice actors that talk whispering. Like the one who made Johann's voice. I really like his impact on the plot and all the mind games, but the voice almost made me drop the show. I dropped so many shows by this "voice thing" to the point i didnt even added them to the list.

can't stand it when the characters never face any consequences for their actions (gag anime can get away with this bc they're attempting a serious or realistic tone)

that feeling i've seen this exact same character before multiple times (i know that generic =/= bad, but it definitely hurts a show in terms of identity)

those guys that just yell all the damn time

Mainly incredibly ecchi stuff. I myself don't mind ecchi scenes or anime but there's always that girl with a voice of a 10 year old that keeps moaning non stop and it's so annoying.
Other things are characters that either have no persona or are way too "cool" and overpowered, like Kirito. I don't mind overpowered characters either but when you mix both cool and overpowered... ugh.
