WHICH ANIME GENRE DO YOU LIKE AND DISLIKE?

After  watching so many anime series, you kind of have an idea of what genre you are more favored towards. There are many genres to choose from such as Slice of Life, Mecha, Action, Horror and Romance just to name a few. And I mean a few. After I looked at my list of anime I’ve watched I realized my favorite anime are usually in the psychological and horror genres. Also, I realized a lot of the anime I dislike are part of the ecchi and harem genre.

 

MY FAVORITES

 

PSYCHOLOGICAL


Psychological genres goes deep into a characters mind. Touching upon the psyche and thinking process. Putting the character in situations where they have to use their intelligence, and wits to figure out the situation. Or can top upon a character’s dysfunctional personality.

 

REASON I LIKE 

 

I love the human mind. It is the most complexed thing ever. The way an anime can challenge the character’s psychological approach to situations is amazing to me. I feel as though it is not that far off from real life.

Above are some of the anime I like from this genre. (Death a note, Future Diary and Death Parade)

 

HORROR

 

Horror genre usually consists of ghost, monsters, and gore. The more blood the more of a horror it is. As long at it creeps or scares a person it Is doing its job as a horror.

 

REASON I LIKE 

I’ve always love horror and thrillers. In anime or actual movies. I just love the chill you get when watching it. It def keeps me on the edge of my seat.

Above are some of the anime I like from this genre. (Another, Deadman Wonderland, Higurashi no Naku Koro no)

 

MY LEAST FAVORITE

 

ECCHI

 

Ecchi is a genre where you will have mild sexual scenes. They are not obscene. Just very settled. You can randomly see a female character’s underwear or have a nude female where you do not see any private parts.

 

REASON FOR DISLIKE 

I don’t mind settled ecchi. But when I am watching an anime and it’s over the top ecchi it can get annoying. Sometimes or most of the time it just doesn’t make since towards the plot/storyline. Sometimes it can take away from the actual plot.

above are some anime that made me dislike this genre. (Trinity Seven, Highschool of the Dead, Heaven’s lost Property)

 

HAREM


Harem is a genre where there is a a male character with 2/3 or more female characters with a love interest in him. They are usually head over heels for him and all are trying to get his attention. Or vice versa a female character with 2 or more male characters after her love.

 

REASON FOR DISLIKE

This genre is just sooooo annoying. When there is a love triangle. OMG it’s just so annoying. I wish I can explain in more detail as to why I dislike this genre but when there is an anime with harem I give up on it.

Above are some Harem anime that made me dislike this genre. (Nisekoi, Hundred, Rosario + Vampire)

 

These are my top likes and dislikes in these categories. Other genres I like are action, adventure and martial arts. Other genres I dislike are Yaoi and Yuri.
