Your most hated anime cliche

I hate, hate, hate! those anime series like pokemon, bakugan, yugiyo (how ever its spelt) and all the other cartoons that involve little pathetic arena fights that makes the whole world suddenly slow down.

And they remain the only people left to kick each others ass. (which is slow as well, considering they talk to much) then when whoever beats who ,everything is back to normal with a person who lost an arena fight that is extremely depressed.

oh and the supposed-to-be-funny puns and jokes that are not funny and are begging for someone to hate them. "And the fact the 90% of anime girls are not good enough to masturbate to.... so I've heard...:P"

One Piece Syndrome-If it exist put it in. A bad guy made out of.....ketchup packets, why not? It's One Piece, they're no such things as limits or dumb ideas.

Shonen Jump Syndrome-All male characters are in the closet. Fucking tired of the 'bromance' stuff. Naruto didn't even know Sasuke for that long, stop pining for him, dude. And look at Ichigo, he can't wait to whip out his long, hot, throbbing, sword at his next opponent.

Lieju:
The over-the top cute-chibi-animal-kid-monster thing that has no real character or relevance to the plot, and is there just to make random sounds.

THIS!!!! ^ so right, what is the point in these?! they are so unnecessary they aint endearing their just annoying as all hell.

The one thing I hate about anime. The major thing is that the storyline can be dragged on for the longest time and not really say anything. An example of this would be Naruto and Inuyasha

Naruto started off as a classy anime about a boy wanted to become Hokage (Chief Ninja) BUT then it shifts him into becoming the grandmaster ninja or some shit. This is where I honestly lost interest in the series because the character didn't know what he wanted to do in his life. He's just stuck in an eternal awkward puberty.

Bleach started off on a good note. The character was likable and the story seemed solid. Until they finish the social society arc in which case we just rinse and repeat the same formula.
Friend A Gets Kidnapped by Enemy A.
Friends B, C, D, and E all fight against Enemies B - G.
Friends get beaten. Do training. Kick ass. Enemies G - M appear.
Enemy A becomes friend F. All friends team up and meet a few more along the ride.

Inuyasha is nothing but 100% filler. It started off nicely but then dragged on to the point when there was no point in watching it anymore. The main problem was that Rumiko Takashi said herself that "I suck at writing endings" and it shows. She instead takes every horrible inuyasha fanfic ever written and uses it to abruptly end the series.

One Piece is suffering from that Bizarre powers thing but that doesn't bug me because even though they are bizarre and out there. The characters are likable. What I don't find likable is the art style. It just draws me off course when the series attempts to be serious, but the story of one piece can be summed up in two words. The Internet.
However recently I saw the new manga.. and I think it looks better... hmm
One Piece dragged on not because Ora didn't know what he wanted to do. He said I just had fun with it which I found respectable because that means he didn't force himself to drag it on because he was trying to avoid the ending.

... Sorry for Wall O Text.

I can even understand it in SOME harem anime. Look at Tenchi Muyo, I mean the princess wanted to marry him and I would have run too, but Ryoko just wanted him to fuck her brains out. I don't care if she is hundreds of years old and a space pirate, she's a fucking fox!

oh god dont remind of that.tenchi muyo was legendary but the main protagonist made me mad as hell.here was a extremely kid nerdy kid with 4 extremely hot girls in one house(washu adult form,mihoshi,ryoko,and kiyone .dont consider ayeka hot and sasamis way too young) and he never even touch one.even though washu and ryoko throw themself's at him he freak out like a little pussy.it was such a obnoxious cliche in the show

That's the difference between Japan and America:
In japan-one teenager surrounded with several hot chicks= PG-13comedy
In America-one teenager surrounded by several hot chicks=porno

This is why I want to see more American Anime-like Avatar: The Last Airbender. It had great animation, tremendous style, American sensibilities, cool action, and it was funny. Plus the plot actually made sense. I wonder what an American version of Dragon Ball Z would be like. It would pretty much be exactly the same, except fights would last one episode and there would be blood, tits, and cussing everywhere. Freiza: Prepare to die Sayian scum! Goku: Fuck you and everyone like you![/quote]why does that sound more badass then the actual show ?

I like to imagine that Highschool of the dead is satirizing excessive fanservice...

Highschool of the Dead is cheap schlocky exploitation. Which is what zombie flicks fucking well should be. If it didn't have excessive fanservice it would be doing it wrong. (Also, the manga is by a professional hentai artist, you gotta stick with what you know, after all)

Well, yes; but the matrix boobs? Come on. They couldn't possibly have done that seriously.

Am I the only one who's first thought at that scene was "Wow, that must have been a horrendous pain to animate" followed by "That's some excellent animation. Wonder how much of their budget that scene cost."

Timotei:

This shit...

The pointless Mexican standoff. Especially when it goes on for longer than 30 seconds.

I do believe that showing Spike Vs. Vicious was a bad example. Because that one was bad-ass.

OT: I don't really have one that I hate the most. I can't even name one special anime cliché.

How people like ash from pokemon saves someone in each episode and yet is never mentioned for it.

Seriously, Ash would be considered a ******* messiah by now!!

Another thing is when animes with fanservice try to be serious later down the road.
(Yeah, I'm looking at you Queens Blade)

Again...

It was a good image that I just happened to have lying around. and I wasn't willing to spend an hour wading through shit to find another good one.

*shocking revelation!*

Character 1:T-This is...
Character 2:No way...
*fifty characters later, another shocking revelation! Repeat previous stutters of disbelief, the longer the pauses, the more disbelief!*

You know what I reallllly hate? Spending like a whole season that's supposed to be like a single season or plot point. (yeah I'm looking at you Bleach, god saving rukia should take like...three episodes. I mean Han and Luke got in and out and blew up the deathstar in less than two hours)

Rakkana:
Ahem. "YOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHO"

That is all.

Heh, is that meant to be One Piece?

Also, really stupid characters in anime who are always incredibly naive and stupid, this usually applies to women who have huge boobs. One example is Orihime from Bleach...
It's bleaches only flaw!

Distorted Stu:
Boobs. MASSIVE boobs.

Off topic, but your avatar made me laugh, cry and smile widely all at the same time. It's awesome!

I forgot something. This occured to me when I was like 7 years old and first started watching yu-gi-oh, but it applies to stuff like bakugon and bay blades.
This is how it goes:

Yu-gi "OH NO! YOU KIDNAPPED MY FRIEND! I'LL TRACK YOU DOWN AND BEAT YOU IN A CARD GAME THEN HE'LL COME BACK!"

Generic bad guy "YOU CAN ONLY GET HIM BACK BY BEATING ME IN A CARD GAME! BUT IF YOU LOSE, YOU DIE! EVEN THOUGH I'M A GROWN MAN WITH IMMENSE WEALTH, AND I COULD EASILY MAKE YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS VANISH WITH NO QUESTIONS ASKED, I WILL RISK IT ALL!"

(sorry for caps)

Of course, this drags on for the course of like 20-40 episodes.

Schoolgirls. What is with the Jap's and goddamn Schoolgirls!!??

nope, i love all anime cliches

- the insane emotional stability (as noted in post 2)
- the entirely without-conciquence violence
- the weird hair colours
- the ability to run at super speeds when embarrased

theyre all gooooood

I already explained this...

NicolasMarinus:
The abstract endings that make no sense and make you wonder why you just spent hours and hours on a series that has a conclusion you can make nothing of. For instance Last Exile and Neon Genesis Evangelion!

Leave it to Gainax to make no sense whatsoever. Watch FLCL and see exactly what I mean. Then read the manga, they're NOTHING ALIKE BUT STILL BATSHIT INSANE!

Yup.

Diablo1099:
Schoolgirls. What is with the Jap's and goddamn Schoolgirls!!??

Nationwide WTF Porn addiction.

Probably the goddamn ways the most series flip out closer to the end. The only series i can accept doing that is Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. But TTGL was destined to flip from the beginning so it was at least expected of it.

honestly, i hate the retarded sexism where a guy is being nice/dosent do anything wrong, then gets the shit beat outa him, verboly or physically by her and every other female in the area, and then her friends, for 1 simple, very insignifigant thing, i mean, yeah, u need a little filler in an anime, but COME ONE! wtf is that shit?

The whole "Messiah" complex. You know, some idiot risks everything constantly to either A: Bring back a friend who is OBVIOUSLY a complete monster/traitor (Naruto) or B: Refuse to stop trying to get an enemy to be a friend despite their constant insistence that they refuse and the fact that they've tried to KILL the hero's other friends numerous times. (Mega Man Starforce)

These idiots need to stop trying to save everyone and just kick some ass already!

Because America makes everything better. That's why we're slowly improving the world by conquering it.

Plot throws guy into compromising situation with girl, girl misunderstands guy and delivers armor piercing slap to guy, sending guy into orbit.

Young teenage girls able to take down four story tall war-mechs, beeing clumsy and shy out of battle, only real problem is to get the cute boy she admires in school. Has talking animal sidekick.

I feel I nailed half an industry.

Super-powerful kids...

That beat up adults...

Pisses me off...

@Nieroshai

Ohhhhhhhhhhh.....

The thing where physical violence against men is comical.

You're probably right. Now I have a question. I've seen every episode of DBZ and I still don't get this: how the fuck did Bulma and Vegeta hook up? That never made any fucking sense, and they never explained it. Sounds like bad fanfiction to me.

Character 1: [Says something]

Character 2: "HUH? [Repeats whatever Character 1 just said]?!?"

Anime characters have the ability to somehow manage to be massively surprised whenever anything at all happens ever.

The one where the guy/girl who is going to...

{A} Get married
{B} Retire from their job
{C} Be right behind you, so don't worry
{D} All of the above
{E} Etc.

...gets murdered, caught in an explosion, has an accident, or some other similar situation.

When the main dude delivers the final blow to the bad guy and then the bad guy decides to have a monologue/soliloquy while he's dematerializing or something. I think Kingdom Hearts started that crap.

Basically I hate the entire Shakespeare copycat stuff that they INSIST on putting in. No new homegrown ideas just copy Shakespeare, it doesn't have to make sense or fit into the overall story, just copy Shakespeare. Squeenix did it, so we must do it too.

When characters get all cute and chubby when they get pissed

Excessive monologuing is my most loathed one.

And that leads to my biggest peave. PLOT HOLES. I just don't get it. Maybe, it's how we're raised but I expect a story to make sense from beginning to end. Japan, it COULD make sense but I really want to put in this flying dog.

My second biggest peave is taking simple ideas and making it overly complex. Like, Sephiroth. Sephiroth is a genetic clone of his 'Mommy' created by jerkoff scientist. He's angry because his life is a lie. Two sentences and I explained his entire character. But the games go about this round about way explaining it. And you're left scratching your head over something that not obtuse at all. It's really rather shallow.

My third biggest peave is the 'That's just weird moment'. Again, Sephiroth. They could have just said they found some of his mommy's rare tissue and cloned him from that, easy peasy. But noooooooooooooooooooooo, in Crisis Core you find out that they found her HOT corpse and hooked a tube to her uterus to get the cells and still have her hot corpse to this day. And this is a Japanese game so you know they were banging that corpse.

And fourth biggest peave. They just don't explain everything. They never explained why Sephiroth's hot mom came to earth in the first place and started killing everybody. And I don't want them to explain that cuz it's gonna be stupid and horrible and I'm gonna get angry and say bad things like '2 bombs wasn't enough.'
