You wanna know something I hate most about anime? Like, seriously?
Dense, boring, lame, unmanly, and irritatingly shy acting male MC’s who for some reason get all the waifus, husbandos and clout just because they say shit like, “I believe in you and I want you to believe in me” before they run off and get their asses kicked.
Like seriously – I am so tired of those tropes I just do not understand why men like that get surrounded by girls with all kinds of skills, looks, and powers for seemingly no real reason sometimes. It really plays into the “women fall for the nice words” type of shit that people seem to complain about.
The waifus want his Donkey Kong like how Mario looks for Princess Peach, which is all the damn time. Next is when the girl(s) are in trouble and the weak no skill having MC runs in all last minute to cover her with the basic ass X stance. He gets sliced down real quick and next time he wakes up has like five girls (maybe 10 or 30 if we talking Negima! Magister Negi Magi) standing over him talking about how they love him and shit.
In rare occasions you get the honest, strong, willed and predator type MC like High School DxD, Heaven’s Lost Property, No Game No Life, Trinity Seven, The Montagatari Series, Hagure Yuusha no Aesthetica or The Misfit of Demon Academy. I truly enjoy series like these because the male lead actually has balls, power, a great personality and there is a good reason why girls (and guys) are attracted to them.
MC that have no purpose, so reasoning, no actual calling for why girls want to peel his banana are the lamest male leads I can think off. Like 90% of the women from SAO, but we can talk about that another time.
I have other things I really hate about anime coming soon.
