Female some-fucking-how was allowed a key to the MC's (male) apartment, uses his shower for no fucking reason.

allow me to enlighten you; hit-or-miss means that the subject at hand can either be good or bad in some instances, in this case, naming attacks. For me, often times, named attacks are announced out loud, breaking the flow of combat, and aren't symbolic or significant in any way except to sound cool.
>>
>>155479328
Your complaint doesn't apply to that fight between All Might and Noumu. Punching harder WAS how to exploit the weakness in his impact absorption quirk.

He did use a strategy to exploit the opponent's weakness. That strategy just happened to also be PUNCH HARDER.

Fucking kids and high schoolers. They are always trying their very best to have the mc be in that range, but the majority of time they could not have to make a stupid story. They could avoid the majority of bad characters and bad cliches by just having an adult cast. Don't wanna have parents around? Just have mc being away for college. I always refer to how fate zero has a decent all around story when you don't have to deal with horny characters all the time, where standard fate has to deal with high schoolers trying to not implode for spending a night under the same roof.

Seriously, this always irritates me to no fucking end. It's fucking retarded having your character lose and get back up so many times but then when the villain gets knocked down he's fucking instantly out of it for good.

Yelling out attack names is only okay if the other characters call him out on it and he says he does it "because it sounds cool"

Were you home schooled or something? I'll admit those types of episodes are cliche, but they're necessary if you want to add something interesting aside from STUDY STUDY STUDY, lunch chatter, and home.

Well it's mostly that life after school years in Japan is the end of freedom and the beginning of wagecuck slavery.

School life is when they are driven by hormones and love is at it's peak as well.
Too bad Japanese ppeople are fucked in the head and bully people that openly express their love to others.
They are xenophobic and jealous by nature.
They judge people by their blood type like fucking horoscope maniacs.

TL;DR School life=life, Post school life=death of freedom.

I'm looking at you, Hulu.

Don't think I didn't notice that you put only the sub version of Yu Yu Hakusho and not the dub. Now it's less convenient to binge watch since I have to rely on the Blu Ray rips on my PC, so I can't work out and do other things while watching without having to stop every 20 mins or so.

bnha is filled with tropes but I still like it a lot for some reason, I guess it's cuz it only has the "epic" tropes
>>
>>155484222
11s don't like being slowly eased into a setting. They want that information upfront so they can situate themselves right away. Shows with complex settings that defer the infodump or introduce it gradually tend to provoke backlash or complete disregard.

In a sense, the infodump becomes a way that the author pitches their concept and sells it to the reader. 11s like being sold to. They don't like being asked to invest on good faith before they get the picture, so things that lack an introductory infodump are received as well as one might receive a business proposal without a strong introductory pitch.
>>
>>155484278
Well tropes are not good or bad by themselves, they're just an instrument. BnHA executes them with thought out quality.

The chapters that cover his pre-balding adventures make it out like he was actually a pretty clever fighter that adapted on the fly to handle tough situations instead of just getting angry and punching things.

Infodumps in prose are a mortal sin as well.
Ever heard of 'show don't tell?'
Describe actions and details which consequently draw the reader's attention to important aspects of the setting. Don't just sit them down and explain things at them.

But this tell-y style of writing is common in pretty much every form of japanese entertainment media, and it's because they just generally prefer having information told to them directly, and for it to be frontloaded rather than distributed.

All Might is a special case. Like Superman, he has the power, and speed to try to save everyone. The villains hated him for it, and thus came up with a way to try and counter him. It did not work. His resolve to was greater, and he knew everyone depends on him. There is literally nothing wrong with the Superman archetype. If done right.

Why can't Haibara and Conan just get together already? They could both take the drug that temporary changes their body back into adults, then have wild unprotected sex, and before Haibara gets pregnant, she turns back into a child. It's the perfect form of birth control.

In monster of the week shows where some moves most notably finishers are used extensively, it's pretty hard to find and produce a variant for each of the 50 or so episodes, and having the same animation makes you eager to see the upcoming new technique. Since it's aimed at children it makes it all the more simple for them to roleplay with their friends.

In non-linear series like Gundam Seed Destiny this is unforgiveable though.

I actually like this, and it can make sense. If you have a secret, perfect counter, you don't want to waste it right away. If you can win without using it, you can use it next time, but if you reveal it, next time the enemy will be able to develope a counter measure.

Are you retarded? If Goku and Vegeta would let their energies fly free in their SSB form like they did during the Cell saga, there wouldn't be a planet, there wouldn't be a galaxy, there wouldn't be a universe.

Both and neither. Light started out promising, then went full retard in episode 2. Based on his decision, L has an IQ of about 110, which twice as much as everyone else's. It's easier to relate to L, since Light only wins thanks to luck, but he isn't really a genius.
Authors should never attempt to write characters smarter than them, it never works.

That's the whole point of BnHA villain that he's not a massive overpowered threat to the world sitting in his basement waiting for the hero to become strong enough for a fight. Just like with MC, you're watching his growth to the top of his side over the course of the story, witness his emotional maturation. Each time Shigaraki appears in the story he's less of a fucktard than he was before and that's important for character development and reader's attachment to him. Unless of course in the end he'll be tossed aside and AfO will take the place of the big bad.

On another note, powerups in DBZ are just powerups. They make the character stronger, and that's it. They don't fight differently. They hardly even look different.

And there's usually not much reason for the characters to get them. It's either "I got stronger by training" or "I got stronger because I'm really emotional.

If there's some functional difference between a hero's "base" power and his "super" power beyond just added strength, or he has to do something special to achieve his super form, then it might be interesting, but the various Super Saiyan forms are just about as arbitrary as a powerup can be.
>>
>>155486696
It's a really shit writing, when all you do is tell the reader your character is strong and capable. Sakura's problem wasn't that she was a shit character, but that Kishy could never show her good sides, and telling us "no really, she's a genius and equal to her teammates" doesn't do shit when all we see is her failing to do everything and hindering others.

That was the exploit that allowed All Might to play on his strengths.

Shock absorption =/= nullification.

His big dilemma before he perma lost his powers was whether to conserve it and help more long term or to spend it all at the risk of losing either his power or his life. He chose the former.

The idea with this is usually the MC starts from 0 and the viewer can watch him grow, its either that or having an additional episode of his childhood. The problem is the growth/power creep is almost always poorly written. Then again, the plot you mentioned is usually used in ecchi/harem anime

Is there an anime where the MC isn't some beta and actually smacks a bitch when she deserves it?

I don't get why this is a criticism on anime, and not on social norms.

Depends on the bar but most people generally only start doing that after a fair amount of drinks. The way it is done in anime is sip from one glass and everyone is tanked. I mean most beer in japan is only around 5%.

Even better, she picked the lock or broke in somehow and may or may not even know the MC. This shit happens in western media too. Its infuriating

This shit annoys me because it isn't a character arc and doesn't conclude the main moral tension of the story at all. It's an offhand last-minute ante-upper that makes everything else apparently functionally irrelevant.

In this case it was totally okay. All Might is the symbol of justice because he is invincible. All Might's concept is being the ultimate superhero. If he used smarts he would be less heroic and thus less All Might. He wouldn't be the hero that the is an ultimate idol for the protagonists. The author followed his premise exactly like that and I think his powerup was totally acceptable and perfect for the plot.

Not in anime, but in manga.

And what makes me more angry is that most of the time, after i finish reading all of the speech bubbles I notice that the fight would have been the same, if not better without the speech bubbles.

I know it's supposed to be overly unrealistic, but come on, the authors get way over themselves with their little wish fulfillment to the point where it's painfully ridiculous.
