10 Reasons to Hate Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Vivid

Keep in mind that I'll be mostly talking about the anime adaptation of ViVid not the original manga because I've only watched the anime not the manga but some of my criticisms can apply to the manga as well.

The Top Ten

1 Too much loli fanservice

For example, that one scene in the 5th episode where Sein (one of the Numbers from StrikerS) was sexually harassing Vivio, Einhart, Corona, and Rio (4 clearly underaged girls) in the hot springs! - PerfectImpulseX

2 It (and Magical Record Lyrical Nanoha Force) ruined the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha franchise and made it jump the shark.

Thank Arceus for the movies and ViVid Strike! because this and Force were so abysmal! - PerfectImpulseX

3 It is partially responsible for why the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha franchise is losing its popularity.
4 The anime only adapted the first 30 chapters of the manga.

I know that an anime based on manga is supposed to be just one big advertisement for the manga but it doesn't excuse you from only adapting the first 10 volumes or so of it! - PerfectImpulseX

5 It shoved the returning characters back to the sidelines.
6 It turned the series into a martial arts anime with barely any science fiction elements to it.
7 Most of the new characters were pretty forgettable.

Einhart Stratos was the only exception to this statement. - PerfectImpulseX

8 There were barely any fight scenes in the anime.

So much for a martial arts series with magical girls, am I right? - PerfectImpulseX

9 The 12.5th/13th/extra episode is just a clip show.
10 Vivio Takamachi became more of a Mary Sue. Vivio Takamachi became more of a Mary Sue.
