Now you must be wondering why the ex obese guys are included and are ready to destroy me with facts, logic, and rectitude. Hold on though, I have a good reason for it. Obesity permeates the soul in anime (actually, something like the mushoku tensei juxtapose where the ugly bastard big beautiful male comes out in certain scenes to make them more disturbing.)

This is specific but the FMC in Josei/Shoujo where FMC has no problem hanging out with other dudes alone while being in love/relationship/married to MC , This trope always felt borderline ntr to me I don't understand what so good of it to be included

I even read a manhwa where FMC literally went on a date to the Zoo with a guy while being married to MC , and the author treated it like some sort of adventure for her or to make sure she "loves" MC

True, there aren't many. It's just the few larger than life figures that leave you with a gargantuan impact. Like the accel world protagonist.

Only one I can think of is the fat kid from Accel World.

I only dislike characters that are always yelling/screaming/shouting and overpowered characters
If you're a fanboy, please don't waste my time.

Manhwa are the worst offenders when it comes to stuff like this in general. I see where you're coming from XD

I don't know anything about Accel World, so you've got me there, I would've never thought of it.

But still even beyond that I can't think of one.

Badly written one-sided tsunderes in romance are almost unbearable for me to watch if they have a prominent role in the anime. There's some shows I will never ever watch because they have a MC like that.
One day we will die, but on all the others we won't.
Top 50 anime with short episodes stack = HERE
Top 50 shorts and MVs (1 episode, under 15 mins) stack = HERE

I knew this one was coming soon lol I despise those too, esp when the show already belongs to the ecchi harem breed.

Tsundere. Most definitely tsundere.
Although there are quite a lot of bad anime character tropes...

I guess generic glasses heroine since I'm pretty indifferent on anime glasses (no best girls with glasses like I said in the thread about it) and by generic I am assuming you mean bland.

I don't find most types of characters annoying, including ones in the poll, as long as they fit, but I guess with that there is a feeling of "it could've been better"

Yeah, bland is the word. They feel so bland that I just dropped that word due to overlap of how both make me feel. Like i've seen the same thing everywhere. Thanks for responding, so it seems there isn't much you really hate.

That's where the trope is most common indeed, though I hate tsunderes in general. The red-haired ones e.g. Eris seem to be the most insufferable though, since they play the shitty archetype the most faithfully, down to their very character design.

Toss-up between the abusive tsun-type tsundere female characters and cowardly butt monkey male leads for a harem series. Both are among the most obnoxious character types I've seen in anime and are rather shallow since rom-com/ harem titles often milk them and said traits in a number of them are all there are to the characters in question.

Tsunderes are much better when it's the whole classical tsundere thing. Eris bugged me a little too, but at this point I feel a bit desensitised after seeing even worse ones in ecchi-harem mangas. On the bright side, at least all the junk comes colour coded for you to identify lol.

The whole genre is cursed with cliches, not tropes, pure template cliches lol. I think maybe those things would bug one less if they stir things up a bit.

If they take up tons of screentime but still have literally zero agency in the narrative, then that's what I can't stand. However, that's hating them as a character, not as a person. I can still totally like them, but not like their presence.

In terms of hating characters as a person, the people I hate the most are pretenders. In real life too, this applies. I don't mean those folks who drop white lies here and there or act like someone they're not out of insecurity, but rather, I deplore people who genuinely believe themselves to be something when they're totally not that thing. I'm talking thinking you're the talk of the town when even the bartender doesn't know your name, bragging about how active your sex life is when you're the guy who's gonna get NTR'd, or playing up your fortune when even renting a Honda would give your wallet flashbacks to 2008. The thing is, there are people who know that they pretend, and deep down, they think they suck; I take pity on those people. But for the douchecanoes who are so deluded that they can't even see their own folly, now that's the shit that gets my pot stirred up.

Loud and whiny characters or spolied brats. I hate Asuka.


There’s nothing special about being born. Not a thing.
Most of the universe is just death, nothing more.
In this universe of ours,
the birth of a new life on some corner of our planet
is nothing but a tiny, insignificant flash.
Death is a normal thing. So why live?
