    The convolutes storylines.. sometimes they have too many subplots going on and it gets tiresome to try to keep up with it.

    The esoteric or super philosphical meanings behind the story. Sometimes you just want a good story without getting all "deep" about it.

    shitty endings (the guy picks the wrong girl)
    indecisive main character that can't pick which girl he wants to fuck
    the shitty side girl that interrupts the relationship between the main guy and girl
    bad romance in general
    filler
    :o

    In adult anime, all the ones where the lead guy sees a girl he really likes in a sexual sort of way, but instead of asking her out on a date, he videotapes her while she's peeing and then uses that to blackmail her into having sex with him. I happens so often in hentai it makes you wonder ... whatever happened to chatting up a girl you fancy?

    - monster a week
    - animes with 1 guy and 100 girls and usually the guy is a fag
    - animes where the main character is a fag
    - mech animes where the main character is a fag
    - obsession with "chibi" characters
    - power level inconsistencies
    - filler
    - shounen manga that tries too hard to not be shounen (ie.. One Piece is shounen and I like it alot cause it doesnt take itself too seriously.... Bleach on the other hand tries to be serious and fails)
    - obscene amounts of pointless fanservice
    - ridiculously stupid outfits/costumes (ishida)
    - the annoying kid sidekick (the fox in inuyahsa and the kid in berserk)
    - sexy cockteases

  16. stupid, forced revelations about the human spirit, etc. that characters gain in the midst of losing some battle.

    i.e. hajime no ippo: when aoki fights for the belt against that other guy with the ugly girlfriend: "how is he still fighting? oh it is because he has a girlfriend so that is why he fights with so much passion. i realized it was now a mistake to dump my girlfriend, i was so wrong." :ugh:

    In most of the combat oriented manga and anime. The plots tend to feature a hero and a villain inexorably drawn together (to the credit of the genre, usually by their own choices rather than fate) who will eventually be locked into a duel. Besides making for highly enthralling action oriented entertainment, there is a purpose to this other than gratuitous violence.

    This is a thematic function that is intrinsically tied to the idea of Bushido. One of the precepts of Bushido is that the practitioner is already dead. This means that in battle he has nothing left to lose and thus is not fighting at all: what he is fighting for fights through him. the warrior is only an instrument of his beliefs.

    This is why you can't just watch the final episode of an anime and get the jist of what it was all about. Since the warriors are metaphors of their own ideals, the duel is a philosophical debate (albeit, a very vivid one). If you were to watch You only see two guys fighting. Had you seen the story from the beginning, you'd know what each character involved represents and why the hero wins as well as understanding the consequences he suffers afterwards.

    Probably the easiest example to work with is Rurouni Kenshin. Himura Kenshin, the protagonist, is an ex-assassin who has become a pacifist when he learns what true loss of human life means. That process is symbolized by a cross-shaped scar on his cheek. It is not a Christian symbol, but the vertical stroke is the wound he inflicted on society which never healed until he received the second, horizontal one which marked his change to pacifism. Consequently, he renounces his political affiliation and uses only a sakabatou (a sword with the sharp side facing the wielder so that it can't cut anyone). He thus represents a humanistic pacifism that can only see fighting as a tragedy and a last resort.

    Shishio was Kenshin's successor in the role of revolutionary assassin and is his first major foil. He espouses a theory of social Darwinism whereby the strong can come to rule over the weak.

    So, basically, they fight, Kenshin wins, and humanistic pacifism beats Social Darwinism any day of the week. And twice on Sundays.

    In recapitulation, the tradition of the duel in anime and manga is both an entertaining one and an agile, if simplistic, method of philosophical discussion.

    But that's what makes it feel like more than "just cartoons" to me. :hsughno: That's what keeps me interested beyond all the pretty colors.

    I hate how with subtitles, when the characters say, for example, "Maggie-chan", the subbers will type "Maggie dear." It drives me CRAZY when every time they address that person it's always as "name dear." Or when they use titles like Mr. or Miss.

    Yeah. Bleach is more like watching someone play an RPG: explore, meet new NPCs, boss fight, level up, repeat.
