Top 10 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. - egnomac

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. - Mcgillacuddy

At least it's better than reading the damn english subtitles. *sigh* -_- - ClassicGaminer

2 Woman with Ridiculously Large Boobs

OH MY GOD. SO SO TRUE IN MOST ANIMES. Amine lovers, there is no use replying or disliking this comment because even you know this is true. - TheRedstoneWiz

I really don't mind this but there is a point where it really becomes over ridicules. - egnomac

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. - Mcgillacuddy

I search Eiken. After looking at the images, I now regret searching her. - TheRedstoneWiz

Now everyone thinks all anime is porn. Gee thanks.

4 Fight Scenes Dragging On Too Long

This is one of my biggest pet peeves in anime. If you don't have a strong story to capitalize on your horsecrap fights, then I will completely trash your anime - Mcgillacuddy

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. - egnomac

5 Wimpy Male Characters
6 Filler Episodes

Probably the most recognizable one would be Naruto Shippuden - Mcgillacuddy

Dragon Ball Z and Pokémon do this. - egnomac

7 Creepy Female Stalkers

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

8 Explaining Battle Moves

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

9 Really Long Titles

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. - Mcgillacuddy

10 The Beach Episode

Oh its summer! Lets 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!

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

Sounded like a side quest episode

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! - ClassicGaminer

The Newcomers

? Overly Violent Tsundere Girls

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.
