What tropes do you hate the most?

Post by Mr. Fountain on Wed Feb 18, 2015 7:30 pm

What tropes/cliches do you hate the most?

I really don't like the harem trope. I mean, they're okay when they're done well, but most of them aren't done well. The trope is an average kinda guy with no real personality becomes the object of attention for several girls (and sometimes like one guy) in the show.

Oh god. I can't take Highschool of the Dead seriously because of all the pointless fucking fanservice. If you want to have a sexy character or a sex scene or something, fine. Random tit jiggling is retarded.

No, I actually think that anime based on fanservice and ecchi is completely fine. Things like Strike Witches where fanservice is the theme is fine, and that's the reason why people watch it. That's fine. But throwing fanservice into an otherwise serious anime is where I take issue.

I think I just hold issue with the fact that it pretending to take itself semi-seriously then later became ecchi.

I've seen a good bit of High School of the Dead, and I know what you mean. It felt really weird when the ecchi started pouring in.

Aside from the gag boobs with that one character, the females were obviously fanservice-y but it was never vulgar. The one time pre ecchi that there was blatant and purposeful sexuality, it was played to be disturbing as a girl was almost molested, as I recall.

Two episodes later... BAM ENJOY YOUR PR0N.

I really can't stand the trope of "friendship solves everything!" Sometimes it's not fucking friendship, sometimes it's individual will power, strength, rage, power of love, or sheer dumb luck.

I agree that I also can't stand the harem trope. Like it seems a lot of new animes (especially slice of life and school animes) are harems now where all the girls are overly sexualized middle schoolers who all look the same except for different hair color/styles and slightly differentiating personalities as they fawn over some basic ass white fuckboy. /rant

Oh my God, Naruto does that constantly. Naruto seems to give off some kind of hypnotic aura of friendship and affability that he changes deep seeded ideological beliefs within his enemies simply by punching them. What the actual fuck?

I am starting to see why Hayao Miyazaki hates anime.

I still think Naruto and Sasuke should have fought to the death... Naruto was always whining about how that guy was his best friend meanwhile Sasuke didn't give two shits about Naruto or anybody else.

Soul Eater's Annoying Ending:
On the opposite end of the spectrum, Soul Eater's ending with Maka single-handily punching out Cthulhu was pretty annoying. The show seemed to have something about partnerships/teamwork and this bitch strait up wrecks the main villain all by herself with one punch.

Ugh "My FRIENDS give me strength!" is a sentence that makes me cringe. Just... No.

Normally, I really don't like fan-service, like in '' highshcool of the dead''...that was... ugh....yea.

But for instance, the anime Kill-la-kill... The fanserive
was assume and was part of the esthetic, even if it had no link to the story at all.

Yeah this is exactly my feelings.

I also have a problem with Gainax Endings. Where everything makes sense, or looks like it will make sense after the ending happens, only to then have a confused and nonsensical ending. The game Indigo Prophesy, made by the guys who did Heavy Rain and Beyond Two Souls was ruined by something like that. Then ending is the most important part of a story. If you ruin it, well....

Isn't Neon Genesis Evangelion a perfect example of a Gainax Ending?

The Trope Namer is Studio Gainax, who became associated with this trope after the infamous ending of Neon Genesis Evangelion.

Neon Genesis is the defining example of a Gainax ending.

All I can say is, "Congratulations. Congratulations. Congratulations, Shinji."

It's even worse when they're on a character that you actually like.

Or when they seem to have a mind of their own and jiggle up and down at different intervals.

DOES PHYSICS NOT APPLY TO BOOBS?!

As a woman with breasts, the unrealistic standards that they are portrayed in almost EVERY SINGLE ANIME gets a bit tiresome.

Especially when compared to the fact that most girls in Eastern Asian culture don't even have breasts that are that big.

On top of that, it's just sexually objectifying a part of a woman's body and using that as their sole personality.

I'm certainly no keyboard warrior or social justice warrior or anything, but for comparison, I would feel really uncomfortable if an anime just featured a ditzy guy walking around with his wang bouncing around and making noise and hitting him in the face and shit.

Actually that kind of sounds hilarious. But still uncomfortable and just weird.
