My main issue with anime is that characters are poorly written. Writers lean on melancholy to create a semblance of ‘depth’, character behavior is strange, and inconsistent, and reactions to events are almost always annoying.
Example, Every single man turns into a blushing buffoon when a woman talks to them. Even if the character was written as ‘bad ass’, they can never hold a conversation with a girl. Someone who’s allegedly some type of legend will have a girl say ‘he’s kinda cute’ then have a nose bleed and collapse after being melancholic and serious the entire series. Is female interest that funny in Japan? You’re 6 foot tall pure muscle have never been flirted with? lol smh.
It reminds of when you accuse a 7 year old boy of having a girlfriend and he screams and runs away. Only this behavior is transposed on a guy that can blow up planets.
>Virginal writers (Female Characters)
The writing of female characters is consistently awful, and they’re all annoying. No exceptions. They’re always written as the same thing; inappropriately bubbly, explosive, demanding. Or, of course, sad lol. The annoying attempts to get shots of their boobs and crotch, which all are ridiculously inflamed, tells me that nobody in the anime industry has ever talked to a women. If this is a glimpse into the male psyche in Japan, I would really hate to be a woman there.
This is further emphasized by the nosebleeds and collapsing every time a girl talks to male characters. Most anime girls are written the way American animators would write and obnoxious kid sister or busty elf. Even if it has nothing to do with what the character is allegedly ‘supposed to be’. President of the galactic empire has temper tantrum and knocks over table then start gushing about a guy in the span of 2 sentences -no big deal. Sultry and depressed half naked mech suit engineer introduces herself with a dance-jig, -go ahead.
I don’t even want to start with their ridiculous attire lol. Just casually battling in the Siberian tundra in a BDSM bikini and flight jacket LOL.
