I am an avid fan of anime. I really do love it. But I have to be honest, there are some things about anime that irks me. Sometimes these pet peeves can make me not like an anime especially if it’s too much of it.
1. TOO MUCH FAN SERVICE
I don’t mind fan service. I think it’s fine now and then. But when it’s overbearing throughout a show then it gets annoying. Now the fan service that irks me the most is when the females are over-sexualized and it takes away from the plot or it has nothing to do with the plot. Another, the accidental male falls on to the female boobs. Two shows that had it the most and it could have been a really good show but they over did the fan service were Trinity Seven and Rosario + Vampire. They both had some interesting storylines but the fan service was over done to me I couldn’t bear it. Again, I don’t mind Fan service but when it’s over done it can really mess up a show for me. I actually find it funny when the boys have nose bleeds from seeing sexy girls hahah.
2. ANNOYING WEAK GIRL
This is one of my biggest pet peeves. I hate when they have a weak or really annoying girl. I get so annoyed while watching the series all they do is cry, complain or always have to be saved all the time. Like die already!! Haha I hate the weak annoying girls like Sakura from Naruto, Yuuki from Vampire Knight and Orihime from Bleach just to name a few. Why can’t we have more extra cute, extra cool or extra strong girls?
3. INCESTUOUS RELATIONSHIP
I guess because this is taboo where I am from, I do get uncomfortable with incestuous anime. I just find it weird. I don’t Judge anyone who likes to watch it. I just know when a whole show is based off of that I cannot watch it. I like to just keep it to a brother always talking about his sister. The only show that has the incestuous relationship but I still like is No Game No Life. It’s just a good show. I stopped watching Kaze no Stigma and The irregular at Magic school because of that. I’m so particular hahah
4. BAD GUYS LICKING LIPS
This is not a huge pet peeve but it can be annoying. I get it if the bad guy licked their lips once or twice to prove a point. But not every time they talk. It can be distracting. At least to me. But I am picky person.
Sometimes I don’t mind fillers but when you have way too many it can be annoying. Just get on with the story. Now if the fillers have an actual meaning to the storyline somewhere in the episode then fine. But if it’s just a another way to add some slice of life to the series then I don’t need it. Naruto is infamous for fillers . I think if we eliminated the fillers the series probably would be 200 episodes instead of 500 hahah.
I don’t have too many pet peeves but these really can irk me. I have stopped watching series when the first 3 pet peeves can be overbearing. Ugh
What are some of your anime Pet Peeves?
