Is there a genre you hate or avoid because you feel like youre wasting your time? For me its slice of life and romance shit.

Now, dont get me wrong, I watch fiction to 'feel' and shed tears, so technically both these genres should be first pick for me, right? However, after having watched a lot of shows (in general) I reached the conclusion that Japanese animation studios are too fucking incompetent to write satisfying romcom/romance endings. Every time I watch a romance anime, get invested in the characters and start to care, I am left with a shitty ending that feels rushed, doesnt properly conclude half the story-lines, doesnt provide proper closure for most of the cast and am left with nothing but disappointment. Is this genre trying to prepare people for real life relationships? Because thats usually how most of them play out.

Forgive me. What do the kids call these genres nowadays? Real life experience and Attraction Between Individuals?
>>
>>152840985
Both romance and SoL can be good if they are at least equal parts comedy. If it just SoL or just romance it's absolute garbage.

off the top of my head the best romance anime for me is tasogare otome x amnesia

manga and anime are both pretty good

I know there are others, but yeah japan does these really fucking bad

Now, do you hate romance, or does romance hate you?
>>
>>152841879
>Now, do you hate romance
I dont hate romance. I simply hate how most studios concludes romance anime to sell more shit to otaku like games etc. which is why I cant be bothered to waste my time on them anymore.
>>
Shounen battle
Anything aimed at women
>>
>>152840985
I avoid these genres;

-Harems because it's essential waifu wars: the anime
-Romance because of the fear of NTR and cuckoldry plots that is getting more common in anime
-Shonenshit because it's all the same powercreep bullshit
-Shoujoshit because most of them are drama on steroids
-Fujoshit and yurishit because it's gay
-Isekai because it's popular
-Slice of life because most of them are yurishit
-Comedy because nip can't into comedy
-Horror because why bother when live action nip horror is superior?
-Sports manga is shonenshit or fujoshit
-Magical girl because most of them are indeed yurishit

I avoid shonen shit and anything harem. I agree that Japan does romance terribly, specifically when they hurl a fistful of girls at the MC for no reason.

Romance
Yuri

SoL centering around normal high schools

Basically anything with really bad CG
Mahou, nothing against it but...you know.
Military sci-fi
Anything futa
Harems
Reverse Harems

I want to say shonen but not all shonen are bad but the pure one like Fairy Tail are absolute fucking dogshit.

Stuff like Shokugeki no Soma are fine though.

To be fair, SnS is objectively better than FT, but that's mostly because FT is bottom of the barrel garbage.

Yaoi/BL with no decent female characters. I hate that the most. Second after that is pure shoujo to an extreme degree.

this.

Yuri/yaoi and harem if the characters isn't particularly interesting.

Anything yuri or with an all girl cast. Especially the latter one, you have to be beyond pathetic to wath those.

I'll give any genre a chance, but my patience has been done by harem anime.
God fuck, i hate harem.
Shallow characters, cockteasing, my waifu>your waifu. And often, in the end, the chinks decide that the beta MC gets nobody because gooks can't into endings.

Isekai is a shit genre. Other than that I also mildly hate harem if I hate the characters

Harems that are set in a School academy and usually are focused on Magic Battles or some sort of Fighting in the world of that anime.

Them shows are just full of cliches, cheap tacky fan service and never leave a good impression, Every single one I've watched is just a waste of time.
>>
>>152840985
Yaoi.
Yaoi is the only genre I hate. I mean, there are a lot of other genere I dislike, bit usually there is an exception that make me change my mind. This doesn't happen with yaoi. I read a quite a bit of stories with BL but those that associated themself with yaoi(or shounen-ai) were total shit.
>>
>>152848888

Harem anime. Especially harem anime where the MC is either a pussy or clueless guy and doesn't want literally any of the women fighting over him. The one few exception are Negima, and that's partly due to the fact that the MC was at least a little kid. A lot of boys don't really think or care about love too much.

Yuri/Yaoi. They're usually bland as shit.

Romance.

>>152842384

Hitman Reborn was not bad overall... What really hurt it is the lack of progress of the character.

Tsuna was no good till the VERY end. That was fucking bullshit. He should've got his balls up after the future arc, but nope, the writer just made him stay like a pussy to the end.

Hibari should've developed a better character rather than being a fucking walking meme with his "I bite you to death" bullshit. Imagine if we got to see him more developed and actually act more human. Imagine if we got to understand why he desires order so much... But no, same old Hibari'll just bite ya to death.

Ugh, just overall so much wasted potential. It's really so sad imo.
>>
>>152840985
Haremshit
Modern cgdct
Modern shoujo romance
The "LN Adaptation" genre

I mean, every genre should possess the potential to produce something decent at the very least; but these seem inherently incapable of it.

It's the same for me, but i dont watch sappy romance shit for that. I watch epic shows like Legend of the galactic heroes and Fist of the north star, and cry manly tears when my favorite characters die.
>>
>>152842058
I agree with all of those.

I got tired of yuri being thrown into damn near every anime in recent seasons. It was a catalyst that stopped me from watching the medium for half a year.

Mecha is garbage

This is what I don't understand can't you people form your own opinions? Why would you avoid something because its popular whats up with this mentality in general?
>>
>>152850418
The ad-hominem is real. Exaggeration for effect, relax man. Let's see this season we have

Kuzu no Honkai
Dragon Maid
Urara
Gabriel Dropout

It's not full blown yuri but there is lesbians or suspected lesbos (the sadist in DropOut) in those works.

Mecha.
When there are cyborgs/androids, it's fine by me.
When i see anything that resembles Gundam/Power Rangers, i immediately avoid almost any title.
>>
>>152840985
NTR and shoujo.
Slice of life is too broad and i really liked shows like Barakamon, NNB and Hanasaku Iroha.
Shoujo-oriented romance, especially 90's to early-2000's are very cringy imo.
NTR is pure cancer only cucks enjoy.
>>
>>152848917
>Isekai is a shit genre
what isekai has mostly evolved into is for sure total shit but stranger in a strange land can allow for cool stories, it's not the genre but the modern interpretation of it that's at fault
>>
>>152840985
>my top3 favorite romance manga is about pedo necrophilia, cross dressing and yuri
Romance is true nigger of genres, anyway.
Male dominated sport, every sport manga with guys is fujobait about pursuing dreams and hardship, this isn't fun at all, on the other hand sport manga with girls is always fun because girls actually have fun and just enjoy doing it.
Male dominated idol show are also shit but that just idol shows being meh in general and lack of cute girls to salvage it.
Game adaptation(VN adaptations include) is also huge red light unless it's something original.
>>
>>152850584
>NTR
Doesn't this happen in predominantly hentai and rarely anime? Kuzu no Honkai counts as cuckold doesn't it? Especially in the male teacher's case

>Shoujo/90's-'00 anime
Damn here I was gonna get into more shoujo because I overlooked the genre (save cardcaptor sakura, which I've enjoyed) and I'm a sucker for 90s '00s art style.

SoLs with larger casts

Don't get me wrong. On an individual basis, some of the characters are great, and some pairs or trios of characters are great, but not great enough to carry the whole show with the uninteresting, cringeworthy, and obnoxious ones dragging it down and generally ruining the entire atmosphere. As the cast of a show increases in size, it becomes more and more likely that it will be complete garbage.

There's a goldilocks zone. SoL is best done with four main characters max, gets even better with three, becomes a difficult exercise in character study with two, and better be done by a master with one or it'll flop. Increase the number of cast members and it becomes exponentially worse - the sort of anime you can only begin to enjoy because you're looking at something prettier than the broken, pathetic life you lead.

I really hate harems most of the time or really anything thats essentially otakubait so they can sell figures and shit.

All that mai waifu shit-tier anime that is more about liking characters than an actual narrative. Which means I dislike most anime I guess.

Japan has pretty awful taste in everything if I'm being honest, all the best selling shows recently have been very lackluster or pandering hard to certain stupid groups. Like otakushit or fujoshits
