  • if i was at chernobyl i could've stopped it

    JoJo fans: haha JoJo doesn’t have any of these cliches
    Then please explain Jotaro who pretty much only has 1 parent, went around various countries beating grown men and vampires before he even graduated high school, is somehow popular with girls at school when it’s shown at this point in time he had 0 social skills and his stand allows him to be perfect every thing.
    Giorno is exactly like PT3 Jotaro but 100x worse and more bland with even more broken op abilities. The only cliches JoJo really doesn’t into is characters like other anime characters and female fan service.
    If anything Mob Psycho is the furthest thing from the generic shonen that’s still in the shonen category.

    JoJo is still best anime tho :)

    Anime protagonist that is weak asf: I WILL USE ALL MY POWER ON YOU
    Antagonist: Your no match for me
    Protagonist: *GETS RANDOM POWER BOOST*
    Antagonist: Why do i hear boss music

    Anime cliches that I hate:
    The quiet guy that every girl wants to be with, when in real life he would be considered a person so full of himself, a jerk or a weirdo.....or just a fucking fag. (Sasuke)
    The protagonist that's a total wimp, goody two shoes, and pussy that all of a sudden turns into a badass because of some power or ability he gains. (Ken Kaneki)
    The self loathing guy that cries about everything. He can't protect someone, he wishes he could protect everyone, he blames himself for everything he reacts with his emotions and yells at everyone because he is in his feelings and he takes 30 episodes to listen to reason (Eren Jaeger)
    All the cliche big, tough guys who are always thugs or jerks that the scrawny, pointy chinned, effeminate faced, no personality, virgin, quiet guy defeats in seconds just because Anime has it out for the poor average men who like to workout. (90% of all the muscular dudes in Anime)

      @Аlex Kalinin in the manga maybe, but I am talking about anime cliches not manga. I find him really cringy at times. Like when he starts punching himself, lol.

    Let's just say nothing you just said is in an anime...I am positive that it won't get much viewers and it won't be interesting. I watch animes to see something different than real life. If I wanted to watch something real, I could have watched some award winning movies.😏

    I couldn't help but imagine this:
    Animator: How do you want the protag's hair?
    Creator: Yes
    Animator: want me to draw the copy some random hair style?
    Creator: Yes
    Then I imagined this😂😂😂😂:
    Anime guy:*afraid of sex*
    Manhuas in MangaToon: HAVE SEX WITH ME WOMAN!!!!

    If i ever write the story of an anime in my life, I would make the protagonist be someone from our world that somehow ended up in the anime world and make him surrounded by other typical annoying anime characters that we see in many of the anime made in todays age. The protagonist would be trying to use his knowledge of typical cliches from anime to avoid trouble and misunderstanding and so on to the details. You cant see it on the surface but this anime would be an anime dedicated to mocking other animes that have annoying unlogical cliche n charachters from pure salt from me. But its also because I cant find an anime that I have already watched made after like 2008 with realism in characters logical thinking so I would make one myself... if I could

    Watch The Disastrous Life of Saiki for those who haven't. Fun to watch, also Sakamoto desu ga

      I personally love Momo. To me, she's like a female Ed Elric except she's rich and enthusiastic. She's balanced out by her low self-esteem and inexperience.

    All anime boys know how to cook...? ExcuSe mE hAVe yoU mET •Elizabeth voice• *SIR MELIODAS*

    • Ian Crider
      Ian Crider 3 months ago

      Unfortunately, the reason why Meliodas's cooking is terrible is because he doesn't care about the customer's tastes nor feelings. Even if he was good at cooking, it shows that he's a little shithole through and through.
