As much as I adore anime, there are quite are few things about it that irritate me. I decided to write about a few of them. Bear in mind, these are my opinions.
- Read the manga endings
It is always so disappointing when you have watched a series for so long, only to be given a terrible ending. However, there is something worse. Read the manga endings. At least with bad endings, you have an ending.
With read the manga endings (if you can even call them that) is probably the biggest spit in the face. Mostly because it is hard or even downright impossible to get certain manga.Even if you can, chances are it’s really pricey.
- Unnecessary fan-service episodes
Who doesn’t love fan-service? Thing is, it sucks when the dark gritty plot grinds to a halt so the characters can go to the beach. *cough* Future Diary *cough*.
Worse, is when a show is compleatly serious then all of a sudden BOOBIES!
Yeah, I’m going there.
There is a shocking abundance of incest in anime. Whether its cousins or brothers and sisters, it is really awkward for me to watch.
It’s even in Osomatsu-San! There is one episode in particular that made me rather uncomfortable while watching it. Episode 16, The Ichimatsu Incident. It’s a funny episode but clearly a fan-service episode (see above).
I was going to look into why there is so much incest in anime, but I don’t want to know. I am mentally disturbed enough, thank you every much. Still, it worries me how common it is.
- The fandom
Admittedly, this isn’t animes fault, nor do I dislike the fandom. I love you guys!
However, I think its safe to say that the anime fandom has to be one of the most insane and passionate fandoms. If not the fandom of all fandoms.
Take recently, sorry for going on and on about Osomatsu-San, but since one of the recent episodes of Steven Universe, Osomatsu-San fans have hijacked the SU fandom. I’m not complaining, as I am in both fandoms after all, but if something remotely anime related appears anywhere the anime fans will show up like someone said Beetlejuice three times.
I am not even going to touch the shipping wars. I want to live, man. Those two words give me PTSD.
