-Deus Ex Machina
-New powers pulled out of their ass
-Excessive fanservice/panty shots etc. There's fanservice in all mediums despite what most people think but when it's excessive or contains 24/7 bouncing tits and fanservice I cannot watch that.

And somewhat in relation to the above, snotty and blindly idealistic kid protagonists. Banagher from Gundam U is a perfect example, blabbering about how everyone else are bad warmongering people even when he himself takes part in it.
Honestly, we've seen these moronic brats a thousand times already, why do they keep popping up, it's not like it's fun watching them pull those moronic love&peace quotes out their ass one after another.

And anyone bringing a sword to a gunfight.


Old post, but that's intentional, most kids are idealistic in this regard, but he however is getting a reality check with his experiences throughout the show.

Oh and also, teenage powertrip fantasies, idiot protagonists, KEY-style trauma porn and similar awful attempts at emotional manipulation, as well as excessive melodrama for the same purpose.

Gundam is full of that stereotypical lead character to the point where they're pretty much indistinguishable from each other.

The biggest thing for me is probably the trends. I don't really care for loli's, nor do I care for tsundere's or "moe". And I particularly don't like when the main character is an idiot or a romance takes like 100 episodes to get anywhere.

Fan service can bug me too, but only if it's the main focus of the show. I actually enjoy a little fan service now and then as long as it's not redundant.

This applies to only some anime.

The anime that have characters which body proportions are irregular, more than your average anime.

i.e. Tsubasa, Special A, etc.

Don't really mind anime with a bad plot so long as the characters are good.

I just realized I hate the trope that it's apparently cute or moe if girls talk while having their fists raised to their chin. Usually it's those ear-cringing moe-speech girls too. The first scene of Little Busters episode 15 pushed me over the edge on this one.

Aesthetic value can be recognized or experienced, but it cannot be conveyed to those who are incapable of grasping its sensations and perceptions. To quarrel on its behalf is always a blunder.

Poorly executed or unintelligent "comedy", especially when an anime would be significantly more substantial without the superimposed lightheartedness.

Characters that have bland personalities so that no matter what happens to them they react with a sort of apathetic acceptance.

You know, I kinda wish there was a better term that we could use for moe-blob characters because the word "moe" is supposed to be a good term.

Non-con situations. I don't like the whole pattern of chara A coming onto chara B and B saying "no" with no effect. Yeah, I know that these are usually played as some kind of weird "B just needs some convincing" characterization, and that if B was really against it, they would push A away, but it's still coercing someone who is not 100% sure they want to participate.

I'd love to see more anime where the couple are both willing actors in a relationship.

Nothing really, some things I don't like. But overall if I had to pick anything in general would have to be how slow and akward some of the romances are.

There's a lot of things that I'm losing tolerance for after all these years, but right now there's 2 I'd like to get off my chest:

1. All the minor characters being caricatures. They're all the same gossipy, bitchy character, and it's hard to imagine everyone in the entire world acting that way except for our lovely protagonists...

2. "You'll never know unless you try..." Usually said after some suggestion that is impossible by common sense, but then it miraculously works after the magic phrase is uttered, every time...

Wimpy main male characters, scenes that are there for no other reason other than to get the hentai drawers new material (aka when anime is normal then suddenly tentacles)
Also when an anime's first episodes depict something (such as an action based plot) then changes and does something completely different and infinitely worse (eg. SAO and Arcana Famiglia)

Bokurano
Shadow Star Narutaru
SAO(survival game anime with chars that look like they should be in a SoL romcom)
Madoka Magika
Elfen Lied
to a lesser extent Psycho Pass (Shoujo char designs don't really fit this kind of anime, also just random cute stuff like the jellyfish, police "disguises" and that whole internet arc)
Gyo (this is more of a contrast issue though, it was high to bright and flashy considering the premise and the type of atmosphere it was going for)

Another big problem I have with anime nowadays is the contrast, everything looks overly bright and the colors look so washed out. I don't know if it's the animation techniques or maybe to match the mood of the currently prevalent slice of life shows but, its not really that pleasing to the eye for me.

Well:

1. Fanservice
Oh god I hate this. Sometimes the writers really want to show-off how well(or not) they can draw tits and butts.

2. Attack Explanation
I never understood what is the point of your opponent exactly explain of what his attack and what it does. Not only gives you a perfect chance to counter attack, but it makes the character look completely stupid.

However, if it is an inner monologue, then I think it is way better, because we can see the MC or any other character struggling to comprehend the attack.

Sorry for the double post.

But it doesn't apply to basically many new animes? I saw some anime back as a kid, and the new ones does look "saturated" if we compare them. Maybe because it's "cleaner"?

I would go for the first reason though.

Sorry for the late reply. I've only seen two of those so far and only read Elfen Lied. For SAO, what did you expect? What were you expecting a 15 year old to look like, Toriko, Goku or maybe Alucard?

For PP, I agree. The shoujo-ish designs of Amano Akira is somewhat, less fitting, for the premise and the setting of the story. As for the jellyfish thingy, that is Akane's personality and I don't really find anything wrong with it. I won't really comment on the internet arc (that isn't really what we were talking about) or the police disguises (I agree with this one. kinda, too cute, for a disguise for police).

As for Elfen Lied, I don't really know how the anime portrayed it, but I don't think the artwork was too unfitting for the story.

Actually, futa can be made less gay than straight porn. You see, straight porn has one guy and one girl. Because you're fapping to something with one guy in it, that's 50% gay. If you watch futa fuck a girl, that's one girl and a half girl, thus only 25% gay. You could make it 0% gay with two girls but the problem is, that makes them lesbian, which wraps back to being 100% gay.

Well, this isn't exactly a flaw that is restricted to anime only, but storytelling in general...

As a lover of minor characters in general, I always find them to be the most fascinating part of just about any series.
They are nothing shorter than admirable: they have no plot armor of any kind, will be disposed of in any way possible regardless of the genre, are barely defined by one or two traits and can never truly achieve any form of happiness.

They are in a constant struggle against reason, as they can't really ever amount to anything by definition; if they did, they wouldn't be minor characters anymore, and a writer simply can't equally define all the characters that appear in his work in a satisfying way, which is why they can never be anything more than figurines defined by a couple of traits or, worse, the way they are dressed.
Wherever you'll find a developed character within a series, there will always be a good dozen hollow ones because of sheer necessity...

But it is exactly because of this fact that, when someone breaks this convention (be it the actual author himself or the fandom), it is nothing short of awesome. For an extreme example, remember this guy?


Bottom line, being caricatures is an otherwise logically necessary flaw that however only makes things more enjoyable when the viewer gets from them when they subvert this convention...
