I always assumed this was something that didn't sound nearly as dumb in japanese and that was the only way translators found to translate it. Is it just bad writing then?
>>
>>120607286
Bad writing, with also a little bit a literary knowledge. They know enough to not go full retard and have the villain pull out something never talked about before in one sentence, but still a lot better if foreshadowed in anyway possible.

You all mention this one a shitload, but I can't remember ever watching an anime where it happened
Am I just good at avoiding shitty shows?
>>
>>120608174
me neither, but I think I've watched very little anime compared to the rest of /a/, so I don't know

>>120606872
Examples?
>>
>secondary character gets some backstory
well we wont be seeing anymore of him after this episode
>>
>>120608174
The only one I can think of right off where it literally happens is Psychic Academy, which is shit.
I know there were others, but they aren't coming to mind right now.

hyakka ryouran has a girl drop from the sky twice.

Second season probably has more girls dropping from the sky.

I wish there was an anime that took a new, honest to reality take to all these cliches. When MC accidentally walks in on Tsundere chick changing somewhere she shouldn't be and she does usual attack shit, MC is either seriously wounded or killed. This causes a splintering of the psyche of Tsundere girl and all the other would have been harem members. The anime focuses on the harem's implosion and breakdown.

>fantasy medieval setting
>mc is the only one with a Japanese name
>he is not even from Japan
>>
Do japanese people really leave theirs sons alone in their houses? Is this common?
>>
>Everyone give me your power!

I hate this one specially because it's a cheap way to make MC hog all the spotlight while saying "yeah, the rest also contributed".

Well the fathers are literally never home anyway working 26 hour days. And if the husband does long term work overseas the wife will likely follow because he still needs a maid to look after his apartment and cook/clean his clothes.

If they feel their kid or kids are old enough to fend for themselves, they just give them a monthly allowance and say Sayonara.

There's probably a show that does all the standard "special meeting" cliches at once, isn't there?

>Girl falls from the sky
>Different girl is the cool, mysterious transfer student
>Another girl is the childhood friend with a marriage promise
>MC-kun sees yet another girl in his dreams until she mysteriously starts appearing all over town, but she always disappears before he can talk to her
>Last girl is created/summoned/transformed using some sort of unknown technology/magic and immediately declares MC-kun is her master

I can't tell which one would win
>>
>>120609839
This. Okay I get it, MC is covered in bitches but he really has to hang out exclusively with them all the time? What's wrong with having some cool bros? It's nice to have wavering pussy around you but one also needs to break a guyssometimes and do stupid manly stuff with friends.
