    I dislike it for giving a bad impression about anime to the general public. Little girls aka loli's sexualized, heavy fan-service, pretty much anything that is NSFW and unfortunately, this is the ONLY view of many in regards to anime.

    Even though the focus of this week was supposed to be Red Riot, the high point for me was the reveal of the other aspect of Fatgum’s quirk which took me completely by surprise I think he’s my favorite of the new characters. But to this point I still don’t feel like the fights have been as exciting as I’d come to expect from this series. Hopefully that will change once they confront Overhaul face to face.

    This is pretty much my stance since there are a number of fanservice and ecchi humor series I found at least somewhat enjoyable, but not many recently. I’m in 100% agreement with Hisoka using Fire Force as an example of where it absolutely ruins a show. And the later in the series it goes, the more ridiculous the scenes. Last week’s took place in what’s supposed to be a fight with main baddies and was just Then there’s recent series like Kandegawa Jet Girls & Why the H are you here Teacher which are so graphic, they cover 3/4 of the screen with censor bars. I wondered what the point was but someone on another forum explained that the entire broadcast version simply serves as a commercial for when they put the uncensored blu ray version up for sale. No thank you. As ridiculous as some of the proportions are, I don’t find the volleyballs as off putting as the footballs. While any show with a character surrounded by multiple members of the opposite sex is probably a harem to some degree, most of the ones I enjoyed made it pretty clear from the outset who the real couple was (Ai Yori Aoshi for example). If course even where others may see multiple ships, I usually only consider one legit (sorry Yuki, but it will always be Kyo & Tohru IMO). As far as Tenchi is concerned, I always considered him too wishywashy to have any actual chemistry with any of the girls. As far as personal tastes, neither Ryoko or Ayeka ever appealed to me. But Kiyone As far as a more recent example, I actually thought the first season of Bokuben was nostalgic of the old goofy comedy harems and even kind of cute. Unfortunately season 2 upped the ecchiness and us kinda disappointing to me.

    All harems should be trailer park dramas.

    Too many isekai titles: While there are a number that I enjoy, there are just too many and increasingly the way they try to differentiate themselves just feel like tacked on gimmicks. Even the ones that try to parody the genre feel generic sometimes. Too many OP MCs: Sorry, but when the MC can take out a major boss or an entire army without even trying, it gets old real fast. Rificulously long awkward sounding titles: not just talking about the english translation either. Increasingly some sort of abbreviation or nickname is almost a necessity. Movies replacing follow up seasons: this may not be a trend yet, but it feels like it could become one with examples like Demon Slayer, Made in Abyss, Konosuba and Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress. I’m not talking about stand alone stories like with older series, but where the main storyline is advanced. The shorter run time usually doesn’t allow for enough character and story development and side characters often get no attention at all. Movies allow for more impressive visuals, unfortunately it usually culminates in some CGI monstrosity for the final showdown (looking at you My Hero Academia & Konosuba). Welp, think I’ve vented enough of my curmudgeness.
