ITT: Post some criticisms of your favourite anime

The animation is dated, the comedy isn't quite as good as the drama and its ending felt rushed.

Anohana can get a bit melodramatic at times, but the fact remains its my favorite

Slow beginning, probably only my favorite because I've seen it so many times over the years. Threads are cancerous.

The meme posting still hasn't stopped, for one.

It can be slow sometimes. Still the best romance I've seen.

Anti-climactic ending and people really hate pic related designs.

Liam Hughes

animation is old, supporting characters are underdeveloped, a lot of important shit is left out from the manga

Levi Harris

I honestly haven't gotten around to Ghost Hound due completely, 100% to pic related. I just can't man, that looks so awful. How long are they like that?

Characters are unrelatable, dialogues are needlessly wordy, the philosophy doesn't speak to everyone.

I think they first appear in episode 4 and they learn to change their form around episode 10.

Animation is old af

Retarded anatomy

You need external sources to understand why and how things in the series actually happened

Can't quite understand the Japs' obsession with Christian Imagery, especially when it's shoved in without much thought

The first 21 episode are below average shitty shonen tier.

I dropped the show 3 times by episode 3, but a tasty friend insisted that I hold on until episode 21.

In the end it was worth it. These 20 episodes ultimately are the necessary build up for the remainder of the show.

I wonder if this could have been done in an other way. The fact that it was very generic and abused common tropes was actually the perfect setup for the whole show. You have to go through 20 episodes of garbage to dig out a small diamond.

Spiral Power wasn't an asspull? Sure there's an explanation for it but if all I need is sheer power of will to win, the trek doesn't seem too difficult.

However reality kicks in hard when Nia dies and Simon can't revive her

Gavin Hall
Gavin Hall

The drama is pretty bad too to be honest. All the psycho teacher-hating students never came across as believable and the resolutions to the conflicts were just shit.

Dylan Jackson
Dylan Jackson

They rarely asspull their way out of a fight except for the first gattai at ep3. They reused Rossiu's ship to make Arc Gurren Lagann and Spiral King's ship to make Chouginga Gurren Lagann.
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann didn't use any other mech, just Spiral Power, but there's the whole dream episode before so it's okay.

Jackson Martinez
Jackson Martinez

The pacing goes from 0-100 out of nowhere after the first 4 episodes, there's a huge variety of concepts explored in incredibly abstruse ways and the symbolism used isn't explained until some time after the fact, the 11th episode didn't provide much useful information for a recap episode, and as a series it expects the viewer to be paying attention to all sorts of details to a nearly insane degree. For some examples, the information needed to make sense of the alien is a ~2 second clip hidden in episode 9, and to make sense of Mika's identity you need to recall key details of a 3 minute sequence from memory when seeing another similar scene later on in the episode and put 2 and 2 together, all by yourself and all without being given any indication to do so.

Madhouse took some shortcuts in animation, this becomes more apparent when looking at the BDs.
Also regarding the source material, Hiroe is an incredibly slow and lazy worker, there still isn't enough manga to make more anime out of.

Adorable size difference.

First season isn't as good as the second. To get the full enjoyment out of the show, you have to let the characters feel very close to you as the show progresses, as if they were your actual friends.

Lagann moving by itself and going to Simon in ep 11ish was a total asspull.

implying the faces aren't the best part of Aria

Austin Long

I could go on about small details all day but to resume it: it had potential yet they fucked up the second season pretty bad, the ovas help just a little bit, but is still bad. They completely changed what the first season had going on.

Austin Evans
Austin Evans

- Despite being so short, It was just a few episodes too long.
- it is never truly explained why any of the magical shit is possible, not that it really matters.
- The ending was predictable, but it was still tearful.
- The full version of the ED is damn near impossible to find.
- The manga sequel was better

Hudson Bailey

Symphogear S1 genuinely feel like a mentally unstable person wrote it and everything past the first season is pretty terrible and generic unless you're way into the singing

Kevin Cox
Kevin Cox

- Season 1 had elements from all the creators' previous works, conglomerating into something that was nice, but seemed unsure as to its direction.
- Half the cast walks out after the first season and become rare guest appearances thereafter. It's a real shame, as the characters that left were quite interesting and could've used more development.
- They tried very hard to stray from Yuri, though I would argue this helped the show greatly, as it made the actual Yuri feel very "teasy."
- Season 2, Episode 11 was upsetting as fuck
- Season 5 never

Aaron Cruz
Aaron Cruz

There's no S3.

Aaron White
Aaron White

- The same old tired "will they? won't they?"
Though being a 90s show, maybe it gets a pass
- Way too long to get a kiss.
- Way too many episodes. Of course the material warrant it, but it was the type of series that just needed anime exposure as opposed to complete recreation. Still, I loved it.

-Slow pacing. It'll take many episodes for things to happen. A lot of the "down" episodes consist of Kaiji ruminating, crying, and sometimes rejoicing.
-There is a lot of narration and repetition of characters' thoughts which some people may not like.
-Poorly done CGI in S1.
-The noses.

Christian Murphy
Christian Murphy

- Much like Honey and clover, it wanted to say something meaningful while having various funny skits. It failed on one, but succeeded greatly on the other.
- Ararararararagi sure has been busy.

Julian Sullivan

The second part of the last episode. Otherwise it's perfect.

Animation isn't particularly high quality and the art is just imitating K-ON instead at least trying to adapt Kishida Mel's glorious designs.
Still my #1 favourite.

Jace Jones

My friend disliked the ghost forms too, but I think it's interesting how they kind of resembled the sensory homunculus.

Charles Russell

And in my #2, oddly enough, I cannot find a single fault whatsoever.
I guess the OST isn't released?

You need external sources to understand why and how things in the series actually happened
You can infer the important things for yourself. If you want to spoil the experience by using a walkthrough then that's your fault.

Ending was pretty cheesy and made no sense in line with the rest of the show.

Josiah James

No focus on his family at all
OP1 was discarded waaaaaaaaaaay too fast
Based Oda only had like 10 episodes
-CG masterpieces, disgusting
I wanted more Sasuke and Oda scenes. Is great hearing Oda talk about ideals.

Jeremiah Hill

How? The ending tied in completely with every single theme the show had.

Mason Wood
Mason Wood

No. He pissed me the fuck off. He's like a rich parent turning their child into a spoiled little fucking monster and letting her loose on other people without remorse

Evan Martinez
Evan Martinez

Because the whole show is focused on a place that's on the very far fringes of what's important. It's about the lives of irrelevant people in an irrelevant place.

And then all that gets tossed out the window because lol she's actually a princess and we stop the war

Jace Russell

This.

Holy shit, everything else were so faptastic, but the last 10 minutes sucked monkey balls.

Hotaru's character got pretty annoying at times doing the same shit over and over.

There's this annoying pink-haired shit who somehow became a part of the main group and whose only gags are sexually assaulting her friends and horrifying art.

Also Bat's VA is sorta fucking up the OP themes by refusing to sing

Ginko doesn't go "ohh?" enough

Ginko never gets traveling companions and him alone can be bland sometimes.

Not enough episodes have a mystical theme and focus on too common problems.

Angel Bell

Josiah Diaz

The characters are a bit flat.

The comedy is not quite as funny as it thinks it is.

The plot is very stereotypical. It's basically your average boy falls in love with a girl and is gifted with a deus ex machina story.

Connor Moore

Despite being a good character, Hei can be associated with edgelords

Easton Harris

Quality drop in the second half leading to a hurried ending.

Lot of reused animation for one of the most expensive anime ever made.

The style differs quite much between animation directors. I wouldn't say the characters are drawn off-model, but it's definitely noticeable, perhaps because of the distinctive chara design.

Kayden Green
Kayden Green

Same. Also, the fact that the only episode apart from her backstory that really develops her character is the last one.

Wyatt Bennett
Wyatt Bennett

Some of the action sequences are really dumb, though they're pretty good on average.
The major looked better in the tacticool outfits.
The leotard thing is poorly designed and makes her head look tiny.

Josiah Bennett
Josiah Bennett

Don't forget that it doesn't become a 10/10 until episode 8.

Austin Robinson
Austin Robinson

Other than Kokuto, the characters are SUPPOSED to be unrelatable. That's kind of the point, they're all very strange and abnormal in some way. I agree with the dialogue part, a lot of stuff some of the characters say (especially Touko) are way too dragged out. Not quite sure how the philosophy not speaking to everyone could be considered a valid criticism.
Definitely not sure about the noses thing, characters' noses are pretty well fleshed out throughout the series.

Benjamin Miller
