PostSubject: Anime Tropes   20th June 2015, 5:44 pm

There are tons I want to discuss but since I'm watching Maid Sama I'm going to start with this one: the whole, "if you're just persistent enough, the girl will like you!" thing grosses me out. I mean, it works somehow in Maid Sama but a lot of times in anime it comes off as MAD CREEPY?? And then the girl just turns around and poof, likes the guy??? It's like they want to promote stalking o_o;

~Feel free to discuss this and other tropes whether you hate or love 'em!

Oh my gosh, I've been WAITING for a topic like this!

The violent tsundere who refuses to listen to what the guy has to say. Now, I haven't seen many harem anime, but from what I've heard from certain critics, most harem anime like Girls Bravo or Oreimo love to feature annoying girls who either yell at or completely abuse the male characters for the absolute stupidest of reasons--sometimes for really overblown reasons and without letting the characters they're abusing explain the situation! And instead of acknowledging their own parts in said situations, they put the blame entirely on the main character, even when he's not doing anything wrong!

Speaking of which, I absolutely HATE it when anime has two characters have a misunderstanding, but instead of talking things out and resolving it like civilized adults, they drag it out sooooo much, refusing to talk to each other, throwing stuff out there like "this has nothing to do with you!" and basically making things worse. I absolutely hate this trope so freaking much. Why do anime use it?! Now, I know this has something to do with some unspoken Japanese societal rule people are big on not just telling people about your personal problems, because it makes you seem like you're being imposing (or worse, trying to push your problems onto other people), which I think is stupid and harmful to someone's psyche. Seriously, most series would be so much shorter, AND BETTER, if they just made characters flippin' talk to each other! Good God!

Tsundere characters might be anime trying to go in the opposite direction of reality in Japan, where a girl who was actually harassed wouldn't have much power to stop it themselves, but that's just my thoughts on it.

And as for the second part, almost every media, including cartoons, anime, and live action shows, does that kind of misunderstanding situation. That's a universal trope used to drag out something known as an Idiot Plot, where the situation was too easy to solve, so the writers had to artificially make it more difficult to lengthen the plot by making characters act irrational. XD

That's just a sign of weak script writing in general.

Yeah. That's why whenever I write my fan fics, I try to AVOID all of said tropes, because I feel they're not only weak writing, but really stupid in general.

Beach episodes are fun and predictable, especially in anime where most of the cast are guys.

Cosmos I'm a HUGE fan of beach episodes. I think my favorite "episode type" is the "spooky summer vacation" one, where the gang goes on some trip (usually a club trip) to some beachy place and someone ends up getting the pants scared off of them for no reason. It's usually like, someone tells a ghost story, then they get lost and separated in the woods, then they scare one another by bumping into each other. Usually there's some romance thrown in. Idk why I just love the set up no matter what the show.

Another trope I've noticed and come to hate is the whole "we're classmates so that automatically makes us friends!" trope. Uhhh...NO. Friendship DOES NOT WORK LIKE THAT. You can't just meet someone and then boom you're friends! That is NOT how friendship works! Why do so many anime do this?!

Every time I see a brother who is like HM MAYBE MY SISTER IS ATTRACTIVE I'm just like "No, bad Japan. Everyone in Japan take a time out." Like I could never ever see this trope again and it would be okay, lol.

Me too! Especially shows like Recently My Sister Is Unusual (WHY WOULD YOU LICENSE THAT GARBAGE, DISCOTEK?!?!?!) are guilty of this, and worse! Angry

No anime is complete without all the characters visiting the hot springs  -_-

I generally don't mind beach episodes or hot spring episodes so long as they don't have gratuitous nudity and...boob grabbing. Seriously, that needs to stop.
