Top 10 Most Annoying Things About Anime

I love anime, but there are things that just really annoy me whether it's due to bad English dubs, unnecessary censorship, or another reason.
The Top Ten
1 Bad English Dubs

Some English dub anime's are tolerable and a lot of times some English dubs are really awful that it's better switching to the Japanese audio with English subtitles.

I don't mind reading subtitles because I can read then fast enough to keep up with what's going on. A lot of English dubs, though, sound utterly ridiculous.

2 Woman with Ridiculously Large Boobs

I'm not surprised anymore these days when they're bigger than the character's head. It would be so hard for her to find clothes that fit.

There was a scene in one anime that I forgot the name of where a woman's boobs dodges a speeding bullet. I don't mind large breasts on some characters but there are limits to how much fanservice is really necessary.

It's annoying, and personally it makes me drop the enjoyment of an anime. I do not watch hentai pervy animes, so I do not watch anime to see stupid boobs everywhere. If they just HAD boobs it would be fine, but they always make sure to show them in the most cringy fanservice scenes ever.

3 Filler Episodes

The only anime that did this right was Sailor Moon, because these episodes developed and fleshed out the characters, were funny, had some cool moments and such, and it was done in a way where the episodes wouldn't even feel like filler at all.

But they didn't do it right all the time, a reason the fourth season, SuperS, is hated is because it had way too much filler.

Fillers can be annoying... even though some of them can be enjoyable, I would prefer going to the point instead of spending time on useless fillers.

4 Harems

They make the females pretty much just eye candy with no personality or hobbies, since their only interest is to please their perverted/indecisive love interest who just ends up with all of them in the end. At least in the reverse harems, the guys actually have personality and interests, which makes them more of a human being than some kind of broken record robot.

Please don't let characters be objectified like this - real life workers are not being implied here, but there are limits.

Now everyone thinks all anime is porn. Gee thanks.

5 Fight Scenes Dragging On Too Long

I love the fight scenes in anime but some fight scenes really drag on too long, Dragon Ball Z is the best example of doing this one of those moments is when Goku fights Frieza and it takes up nearly an entire season and most of the episodes fight scenes consist of them fighting then stop to talk go back to fighting then the scene switches to a scene with other characters and also Yu-Gi-Oh does this with some duels being up to 3 or even six episodes of just one duel.

6 Wimpy Male Characters

I get offended by stuff like this as a boy.

7 The Beach Episode

Oh it's summer! Let's make those anime girls go to the beach so we can make them wear sexy bikinis and show off their boobs and asses! HELL NO!

I hope the Pokémon animators and writers learn their lessons after that stupid ass "Beauty and the Beach" episode and other episodes where they have one of the female Pokémon characters wearing a bikini. I hate these kinds of episodes, they're TEN years old for God's sake!

A lot of anime's always seem to include a Beach episode a lot of times for no reason.

8 Creepy Female Stalkers

Especially when they get the guy in the end. basically, the thing is, if (a girl/you) harass(es) and force (herself/yourself) on (you/a boy) enough times, (you will have to throw away your life and give her what she wants/he will end up throwing everything away and giving you what you want). what a twisted message honestly.

I'm looking at you Sakura from Naruto and Especially you Serena from Pokémon XY.

9 Explaining Battle Moves

Honestly the villain could explain it in their head, or one of the protagonists knows it and explains it to their ally.

Whenever the bad guy explains their battle moves/plans they always lose

10 Repetitive Openings

I binge shows only and it's the most annoying thing. Sure I'll watch it a couple times or if they have a new one, but most streaming options doesn't have the "skip intro" like Netflix. Even then you miss part of the story cause they put the Intro 5 min in.

The Contenders
11 Really Long Titles

Also the same words in the titles of several different fantasy isekai anime based on light novels makes me confuse different series for each other, especially works when character designs aren't memorable and are plain.

This is the title to an actual anime that I watched:

Japanese: Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo?
English: Problem Children Are Coming From Another World Aren't They?

The anime is decent but that title is just unnecessarily long. They could've just named it Problem Children.

12 Male Character Being Violently Attacked by Female Characters for No Reason

This is so annoying and one of my biggest gripes with anime honestly.

13 Hentai
14 Inappropriate Wide-Angle Scenes
15 Perverts

Yeah everyone wants a pervert who either ends up liking them later or making up with the protagonist somehow or something - give me some STORY.

16 Sexual Innuendo

Really good material doesn't have to be so cheap.

17 Annoying Voice Acting
18 Fan Service

My friends literally talked about anime (along with K-POP) all the time and kept asking me to watch it. I had already watch 2 of them, Initial D and Wagan Midnight. The biggest thing I didn't like about anime in general is people acting out behavior similar to anime characters which I may find myself completely isolated and shoved away by them.

19 Overly Violent Tsundere Girls

If a guy did it to a girl, He would be a woman beater. But it's okay for a girl to do it to a guy, Do I smell sexism?

Can't that guy smack that bitch back for once? Tsunderes are like parents who abuse you because they love you. I'm not being sexist, I would love it if a girl does the same to an overly violent male tsundere, and I am a girl myself. But I have seen so many annoying tsunderes like this, and I want to see a guy do it to a girl.

20 Every Main Character is an Idiot
21 Bathhouse Scenes
22 Silicon Breasts

Those are fake! They look like they got implants and plastic surgery to their outside skin!

23 Unnecessary Story Arc
24 4kids

Ok first of all SICK BURN! LOL! and second I can agree even though they made a masterpiece like Yugioh (It could still be better even though it's perfect) they changed stuff that made the series a little bit less enjoyable. Such as Yugi telling Joey "Joey, I love you..." when he was mind controlled. And don't worry, that isn't really a spoiler.
