I agree. There's a lot of cliche in today's anime. I know it's hard to come up with something original given that mostly everything's already been done. But a lot could be executed better. Producers seem to stick with the formula for the most part. I understand it, it sells. But it still sucks.
LOL Jori-kun. That's spot on. When an anime goes overboard with that it really gets annoying. I watched King of Thorn last night. It had some good action. Not the best movie, but worth a watch. Also watched Wolf's Rain while I was sick. It was much better as far as story goes. & Of course the action was good.
