Best example I can think of is Symphogear.

Anime in general. It obviously started out as a joke, but some autists took it seriously and now we're drowning in cesspool it is.

Every single instance of slapstick with a girl hurting a guy for a stupid reason or no reason at all.

And of course, always getting away with it or even rewarded for their violent behavior in the end.

It got obnoxious and dull halfway through
Just like everything about the show

Funny you say that given I thought the opposite. It started as a stupid piece of garbage and about halfway through got so absurd it was actually enjoyable

If a gag is in multiple series then it immediately becomes unfunny, regardless of whether or not it was originally any good.
>tsunderes
>constant punching of MC
>random breast groping and lewd falling
>power of friendship/love
>stupid circumstantial shit preventing MC from asking girl out
>powerful characters having irrational fears which are taken to an absurd level

>etc.
>>
>>134456748
Funnily enough, the fact that Natsu just rushed straight towards the enemy boss and instantly unleashed his trump card is a pretty big trope subversion, especially for a series like fairy tail
>>
How and why the fuck did "girl beats the crap out of guy for stupid reason all the time" even become such a common joke. Who does it appeal to exactly.
>>
>>134456411
But fat people generally do like food? A fatass like you should be more buttfrustrated at all the skinny attractive characters who eat massive meals all the time.
>>
>>134457127
I'd consider it to be a natural evolution of the tsundere character type. If people enjoy it when a cute girl constantly yells insults at the MC (I expect this idea is because the insults and yelling seem out of place when being said by a harmless little girl), then writers probably thought it would also be cute if they also used physical violence. While this may seem out of place in the older, more 'realistic' anime style, when anime directors (mature anime previously having been a far more niche hobby) decided to copy/take inspiration from the success of Western cartoons which often featured comedic violence without any actual harm being sustained (eg. Loony Tunes), more light hearted anime was developed which fitted 'violence for comedic effect' which was pushed onto the tsundere archetype as they were one of the only character types which acted comedically violent. After a few series saw success with this idea and the love of tsunderes grew with the modern anime style, this gag became more widespread.

"I must protect my friends so I will give it my all with my attacks (while explaining every attack) and then get struck down by surprise and get back up for a final attack routine to protect my friends I talk so fondly about" routine.

predictable plot where the characters with the most power / importance are the better looking and/or arrogant ones.
Where the closer our protagonists get to their goal the harder the enemy is to defeat.

Typical / boring development with a whiny girl claiming to love a protagonist.
>>
>>134460792

Rising aura means you're strong.
Being calm and always smiling means you're strong.
Physics doesn't apply to you because you're strong.
You're strong because you have had something vague happened to you. "I won't forgive you for 'that'." says the character. "that" being the tool that almost every shounen manga uses. Some lame tragedy.

And this was my (autistic?) rant on a chapter (specific number that I've forgotten) of Rosario Vampire season 2. This was during the finale, where the protagonists fought the final guy alucard.

In this chapter Tsukune was fighting Moka's evil sister.
--------
. Generic fight, people to protect, magic swords (meh), lame "romantic" ending.


Spectators: "Oh no, Tsukune is getting stronger!"
"Oh no, he's getting EVEN stronger!"

Tsukune: "I'll beat you hurr durr."

Wheelchair guy: "Don't interfere Moka, he's got people to protect because that's what people do in mangas."

Gyokuro Shuzen: "Fufufu you think you can beat me? Come at me bro!"
*Tsukune attacks, she dodges. Generic battle scene ensues, nothing special.*

Wheelchair guy: "H-How can he have so much power?!" (A line used a billion times in (shounen) mangas.)

Gyokuro Shuzen: "Fufufu, you're powerful, okay then let me play with you!" *generic arrogance, lame power up, has copycat powers*
"Now I'll kill you with a generic scary expression!"

*Tsukune gets a magic sword (huehuehuehue) which just so happens to negate dimensional sword.*
*boring slash attack*

Gyokuro Shuzen: "H-he became EVEN STRONGER?!?!one!!1eleven1!??" (logic and pacing can go to hell now)

*tsukune's seal weakens - FORESHADOWING*
*they trade punches (meh) and Gyokuro Shuzen goes down with her ovaries burst, but is she dead? - FORESHADOWING AGAIN*

The main girl cries (oh yeah, NOW your heart's moved, you dumb bitch? Only took 100 chapters to notice his feelings?)
Main guy is sorta beaten up, falls into her arms, bright lights, they both hug. I swear a 16 year old tween could have thought of this ending, if not the entire typical story in this chapter.

Don't forget the foreshadowing, AND the main boss is still alive, so expect sacrifices and some more illogical moments.

>"I must protect my friends so I will give it my all with my attacks (while explaining every attack) and then get struck down by surprise and get back up for a final attack routine to protect my friends I talk so fondly about" routine.
Is it even possible to have a shounen without this?

>>134461112
Yes. Akumetsu. Although it's not shounen.
