Top Ten Reasons Why Anime Sucks

It’s a well-known objective fact that anime sucks, everyone knows this. Even my friends who watch anime dislike most of them. But they are wrong; it’s incorrect to like any anime because every single anime is awful. Here are ten reasons why

644450_1

  1. The Anime Industry Sucks

Something is deeply wrong and messed up with the anime industry. Animators and staff are seriously underpaid and work overtime for free. It’s a horrible truth that anime fans hate to admit but it doesn’t make anime inherently bad. After all, treatment of staff has no overall effect on the episode quality. It’s the fact that anime companies can’t make the money to pay their own staff.

If I take statistics from my anime list (a website which tracks how much anime you’ve seen) there are at least 1,200,000 viewers of anime (and probably many more since most anime fans don’t use My anime list and not everyone has seen the most popular anime) and not a single one is prepared to pay for it. Surely if anime fans cared about anime enough they would actually buy it to pay their staff. But no, anime is so bad that the fans are prepared to steal and pirate just because they don’t think it’s worth buying.

Anime’s fundamental floor is a failure to make people care about it, and that’s why it’s dying and that’s why it sucks. Nobody cares enough to buy it.

  1. Hayao Miyazaki

Hayao Miyazaki is the only anime staff member with even a little sense because he knows it sucks as well: “Anime was a mistake.” Just put yourself in Miyazaki’s shoes. You just created anime yesterday, are you happy with yourself? The answer is no. Hayao Miyazaki has the sense to look on his monstrous creation with scorn and sadness.

If the creator of anime hates anime and regrets making it then you know there’s something seriously wrong.

  1. The Fan Base

retarded-fangirl-sasuke-is-my-waifu

All anime fans are called weaboos, and they suck. They’re Naruto running, kawai saying morons who don’t know how to take a joke. Watching a weaboo trying to function in society is like watching a baby trying to walk across the room. No matter how far it gets it will inevitably fall over, shit itself and go back to sleep. They also get triggered seriously easily. I know that a baby isn’t an “it” but I used “It” because it’s gender neutral not because I don’t think babies have genders! I literally just read every anime fan’s mind and wrote down a response to it, that’s how predictable these guys are!

But the fan base can’t degrade the quality of anime. Or can it? Since anime studios want to actually make money they appeal to these disgusting pigs and degrade their quality by trying to appeal to them. Therefore lowering the quality of anime making it suck.

  1. Its racist

All anime fans are racist because they watch anime, which is racist. Ever seen a black guy in an anime? I didn’t think so. Theirs most likely a few exceptions however theirs never an all-black cast, a black main character or even an anime fan who cares.

If you support anime you also support racism. And racism sucks. Where’s the representation?

  1. Its Misogynistic

This is so obvious that I shouldn’t even need to explain. 99% of anime has just male protagonists because anime creators don’t believe that a woman is capable of solving problems or leading their own adventure. Instead women in anime are treated as objects specifically to advance plot or facilitate fan service and no female character is safe from this awful misogyny (more on that later).

All anime that isn’t ecchi wants to be ecchi, displaying all fan service it could possibly get away with before losing its children’s rating. As well as this, all anime that’s ecchi wants to be hentai, you can’t deny it. The scenes of ecchi are like what you’d expect from anime porn except for the fact that some parts are censored.

Weaboos who admit to watching hentai are the weebs I respect the most. They can at least admit that all they want to see is 2d naked women.

  1. Little Girls are Not Safe in Anime

bb41c4df9b3560ff448110ded9afba7c

This negative treatment towards women is also brought upon little girls who receive the same treatment as the rest of the female characters. Anime doesn’t understand what the age of consent is and seem perfectly fine to throw paedophilic fan service at any place possible. It’s disgusting as not only is it little children; it also encourages paedophilia which I’m not ok with.

  1. Its anti-christian

Whether you’re a Christian or not it’s hard to deny that the fundamental part of Christianity besides god is love (and not lust), so as to not exclude other religions and atheists I will be talking about the loving side of Christianity and not god since I believe everyone should have love (“Love thy neighbour” and that kind of thing) but only have believing in God  as a choice. Let me quote a few bible verses.

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things” (Philippians 4:8).

So judging by what I said earlier it’s easy to see why anime has a serious problem with Christianity. But let me bring up the quote “whatever is true” since anime is fake and not real. So because every anime shoves fan service and sex down your throat in an insincere and fake way anime is not acceptable in Christianity since anime characters are not “true” and lust is a sin on its own anyway.

  1. Anime Is Not Real

The question “what is anime?” isn’t a question you can simply look up, everyone has their own personal opinion on what it is and nobody can define it. The reason why it’s difficult to define is that it’s not real.  The amount of arguments I see where people argue about whether a show is anime or not is mind-blowing and it shows a fundamental floor in what anime is.

Anime is not real, consensus anime is. The only thing that makes anime “anime” is other people’s belief that it is indeed anime. I find it hilarious that it’s more of a philosophical question than anything else!

  1. It condones Rape

pv2-3

You thought child porn cartoons was the worst thing to come out of anime? Well how about rape? Shows like “Netsuzou Trap” and “Skirt no Naka wa Kedamono Deshita” outright condone rape by including it without criticising it. I didn’t look at some obscure shows; these two are new and currently airing this season.

Even when the show doesn’t include rape it will essentially do borderline rape by including fan service of characters who don’t really want to be shown in a sexual manor.

  1. Kiss Anime Gave Me A Trojen Virus

All free anime websites take advantage of their viewers by including toxic malicious software on their website. Sure I got a virus (It’s gone now because I applied my “dealing with weebs” skills to the dealing with virus’s problem) but that’s not even the whole picture.

By simply clicking on the screen an ad will pop up and try to destroy your computer, that’s how I got mine. But another thing that these websites show are advertisements, the worst advertisements ever because they’re obviously scams. Let me read some adds out.

“This pill burns fat”

“How to get a million dollars in just one hour”

“Millionaires pay millions to try and hide this video”

These ads are obviously fake but the funny thing is that anime fans actually fall for these! It’s telling that the people defending anime are also the ones falling for these dumb ridiculous advertisements.

 

So there you go, there’s 10 reasons why anime sucks.  I could go into more reasons but quite frankly 10 reasons is enough to unquestioningly conclude that all anime sucks. You’re welcome. Also if you couldn’t tell already I’m having a break from blogging, see you if I get back!

  1. I am writing this comment to point out all of the flaws in your article. Your article is trying to prove that “it’s incorrect to like any anime because every single anime is awful” However, I believe your reasons are very inaccurate. I don’t know whether this article is legit or satire, but I will treat it as something legit in this comment.

    The Anime Industry Sucks: You said that but it doesn’t make anime inherently bad so tell me why you included this point in the first place. As a passionate anime fan, I accept the anime industry is bad but that doesn’t control what quality of content. A corrupted company can create marvelous works just like any other company.

    Hayao Miyazaki: First off, Hayao Miyazaki never said “Anime was a mistake.” It was just a misconception. Secondly, Hayao Miyazaki didn’t create anime so why should we listen to him for word? If you want proof that Hayao Miyazaki never said anime was a mistake, then here you go https://animemotivation.com/was-anime-a-mistake/.

    1. The Fan Base: One thing I hate about your article is that you keep generalizing. I accept that many anime fans are toxic (just look at My hero Academia fandom). However, this does not mean that all anime fans are stupid or toxic. Just look around and I’m sure you will find an anime fan who has a successful life. Anime YouTubers are making millions of dollars, so they aren’t failures in their lives.

    2. It’s racist: This argument is way better than the last one. I agree that most anime characters are white and don’t even resemble Asians. I also agree there’s. Not many black people representation in anime. However, I do not believe this is racist. As a writer or manga artist, am I expected to represent every single race? Writing diverse characters is hard and it’s hard to write good representations. Even then, adding a POC character is not always appropriate for the setting. An anime that takes place in feudal Japan should not have a black character as it wouldn’t fit the era. Having a POC character is not always good as it can shatter immersion. Also, your argument for not having blacks in anime isn’t very accurate. Here is a list of black characters in anime that are well represented: https://gamerant.com/best-black-anime-characters/.

    3. It’s Misogynistic: Again, this argument is generalizing. Many anime have powerful female leads. I agree that in many anime female portrayal is terrible. There’s fan service everywhere. However, there is anime with good female leads. Attack on titan, Yona of Dawn, Every single Ghibli movie with a female lead, Your Lie in April, Sailor Moon, The Promised Neverland, Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day, Fate/Zero, Silent Voice, and hundreds more.

    4. Little Girls are Not Safe in Anime: Once again, you are generalizing. Your article was meant to portray that every anime sucks. I admit that some anime do sexualize kids. However, not all of them do that. I can name another dozen if you’d like but I won’t bother.

    5. It’s Anti-Christian: You quoted a bible verse that is “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things” (Philippians 4:8). Yes anime is fictional but so is much of our society. Movies are fictional, comics are fictional, and books and novels are fictional. However, anime can be lovely and admirable. Fanservice isn’t real but as the list above proves, there is much anime without fan service. Furthermore, Jesus uses fictional Parables yet still helps people find what is loving and what is true. Anime is the same.

    6. Anime Is Not Real: How does that make anime suck? Multiple interpretations of what it is can be a good thing.

    7. It condones Rape: Yes, those anime do condone rape which is terrible. However, not every anime condones rape or has rape elements. Generalizing again.

    8. Kiss Anime Gave Me A Trojen Virus Okay, it is a tragedy that you found a virus on a shady anime website. However, a lot of websites on the internet have shady ads. This point has nothing to do with anime as a genre at all. Not every anime website has a malicious virus. You can also find viruses outside the anime website.

    In conclusion, I believe your points on why anime sucks are downright silly. Judging from the name of your blog, I assume you wrote this with an empty brain. Next time, you should either come up with actual valid points to criticize anime as a whole or just stop pumping out these soulless articles. If your blog is all about these soulless articles then congratulations, you’ve just wasted a bulk of my time. Feel free to leave a reply debunking all of my points if you believe I am wrong and I might actually change my belief if you offer “real” constructive criticism.

    1. Hi, I saw your email and realised this had been blocked by my spam filter. Every time someone includes a comment with a link it gets blocked as it might be spam or advertising, so thanks for letting me know.

      I find it so strange that so many people think this article might be satire, what on earth gave you that impression? If the irrefutable points already given to you did not convince you, I don’t know what will, but nevertheless I will respond.

      Please also consider that I wrote this article 5 years ago, so I have no idea who Hayao Miyazaki even is, so I’ll just assume you’re right in those areas. I also admit that anime might have changed in the 5 years since I wrote this, so if that’s the case, let me know.

      The anime industry has brutal working conditions and low salaries. Anime is made at a huge expense to the wellbeing of others. If you were talking about a horrible person who made a great piece of work, I would understand where you are coming from, although the person is bad the work is not. However the important thing that distinguishes between the two examples is that anime is the reason for the workers’ suffering, it is causing their suffering. No matter how good an anime is, it has harmed lots of people, which is why I think the poor working conditions of anime studio’s is a massive contributor to why it sucks.

      1. Millions of dollars? That’s a radical exaggeration. I’m willing to accept that most anime fans can pretend to be normal for a while, but just mention anything about preferring dubs and see if it stays that way.

      2. The point about racism was the lack of main characters. Even in the article you gave the characters listed were not even in the main cast, never mind the main character! So I’m supposed to accept that because 0.001% of anime’s have black characters that anime is not racist? That’s just crazy. It’s like saying because I am not racist 0.001% of the time, I am not racist at all.

      As a side note, also consider that when I am talking about anime, I am not just talking about popular anime, which is typically better on all these issues than others, but also unpopular anime, which is what 99% of anime is. As soon as I delve into any of that it’s all of these problems mentioned increased massively.

      3. Basically the same thing I said in 2. If 99.999% of anime sucks, I don’t think it’s an unfair to simplify it to all of anime sucks. I do hope that this problem gets better though. You acknowledging the problem, and saying shows that are exceptions at least gives me hope that one day this sort of thing in anime can be in the past.

      4. I’m already at risk of repeating myself a 3rd time so I’m just going to move on.

      5. That bible passage potentially wasn’t the most well chosen, and while most do not apply to anime as a whole, there are many passages against all of the issues mentioned here, like racism, sexism, child rape. I’m happy to give you these if you want but I feel that this is something that everyone knows, and generally just accepts.

      6. The icing on the cake of anime sucking is that when you say it sucks, nobody has any idea what you mean. When I say that anime sucks, it could have completely different meaning to someone else. To me, that sucks. Some people even think that I don’t know what anime is, saying that this post isn’t talking about anime at all and some other word called ecchi or hentai or something. If I’m saying it sucks, you’d think I’d know what it is!

      7. 99.999% argument again.

      8. If someone gives you Covid deliberately, you are reasonably allowed to hate the person who gave you it. If anime gives me a virus, I am reasonably allowed to hate anime! I don’t think pointing to other websites even matters, as I obviously don’t like those too.

      Yes, your assumption is correct, I did write this with an empty brain, my brain is completely empty. Do you really feel I am pumping out all these soulless articles? To be honest, this is the only article I’ve ever written that’s like this, except for maybe responding to comments made about this post. I’m not doing this to waste people’s time, read the comments about those who know people who have raped kids due to watching anime. I feel I’m doing the right thing.

  3. Hey, so, I don’t want to force you to like anime, but I guess it would be nice if you would at least respect it? I’d like to correct you on the fact that all people who like anime are not weaboos, but possibly weebs. Weaboo is a term used to define people who is obsessed with Japanese culture and such, while a weeb is someone who simply is a fan of anime and/or manga.
    I know it will probably be futile, but I would like to make some suggestions.
    The Promised Neverland is what appears to be a harmless feel-good anime about kids at an orphanage, but don’t be deceived. You should not watch this if you are sensitive to character death, blood, weapons, people who are clearly insane, and severed body parts.
    Jujutsu Kaisen is about Yuji Itadori, a kind-hearted teenager, joins his school’s Occult Club for fun, but discovers curse users, who are actual sorcerers who can manipulate the energy between beings for their own use. He hears about a cursed talisman – the finger of Sukuna, a curse – and is being targeted by other cursed beings. Do not watch if you are sensitive to language, gore, severed body parts, mention of humans being sold, the transfiguration of humans, and lots of death.
    The Disastrous Life of Saiki K is a comedy about a high school boy, Kusuo Saiki, who was born with psychic powers but only wishes for a normal life. Do not watch if you are sensitive to slight blood, adult humor, slight language, mentions of incest.
    Demon Slayer is about Tanjirou Kamado, a boy who takes care of his family, until a tragedy happens and he is determined to become a demon slayer. That’s all I’m giving you. Do not watch if you are sensitive to blood, loss of body parts, blood, blood, death, traumatic backstories, kind of cannibalism, death, trauma, ugly demons, cool people dying.
    HunterxHunter is about Gon Freeces, Killua Zoldyck, Kurapika Kurta, and Leorio Paladiknight. Gon is a 12 year old boy with dreams of becoming a hunter like his father, but first he has to pass the Hunter Exam. I swear to god, no matter what the intro says, I cannot smile again after season 5. Don’t watch this if you are sensitive to blood, death, gore, pedophilia, sadness, and characters you started to have severe emotional attachment to dying.
    Attack on Titan is about Eren Jaeger, a boy who, after the destruction of his town, is set on joining the Survey Corp to kill all of the titans that prey on humanity. Do not watch if you’re sensitive to blood, death, blood, death, gore, suicide, mentions of suicide, death threats, kind of nudity, cannibalism, extreme violence, corrupt military, and betrayal. Every opening is amazing though.
    Angels of Death is about Rachel Gardner, who wakes up on floor B7 of an unfamiliar building. When she proceeds to the next floor, she quickly realizes that the building is not ordinary, but full of angels. Do not watch if you’re sensitive to blood, death, mentions of suicide, murder, language, past trauma, insanity. It’s also a Japanese horror game.
    Ouran High School Host Club is about Haruhi Fujioka, who goes to a school called Ouran Academy. Trying to find a quiet place to study, Haruhi meets a group of boys called the Ouran High School Host Club. Later on, she gets closer to the members of the host club, and they become the best of friends. It does deal with romance, so if you don’t like romance, you might not like this. Do not watch if you are sensitive to inappropriate jokes, language.
    How to Keep a Mummy is a light hearted anime about a boy named Sora Kashiwagi. One day he receives a coffin in the mail from his adventurer father. Inside is a tiny mummy, who just wants to be friends. Do not watch if you are sensitive to kidnapping, even though it might not be kidnapping if the one you take isn’t human. It’s probably better described as poaching. It’s only in the last couple of episodes though.

    1. Hi Gale, thanks for the thoughts. I didn’t think there was a difference between weeb and weaboo, don’t most people think they mean the same thing? I thought weeb was an abbreviation of weaboo. Thanks for the recommendations, I’m willing to try some of them later. Are you sure HunterxHunter had pedophilia? That’s one I have seen and I don’t remember anything like that.

  4. I agree. A LOT of anime is paedophilic, mysoginistic, sexist, etc. Not to mention, there is very little originality (at least in terms of the artwork). EVERY anime shows emotions in the SAME way. Angry? Close up of clenched jaw (or fist, or eyes). Let’s add some extra thick lines. Maybe we’ll make the background “shake” a bit. EVERY. FUCKING. ANIME. And it’s been THE. EXACT. SAME. since the 80s!
    I could go on. But, won’t.

    I do wonder though…
    how the fuck do you put depictions/condoning (non-child) rape down as worse than paedophilia, and the raping of children???????? WTF is wrong with you??
    Also, “it’s not Christian?” How is that a reason for anything being bad???? Seriously? Again,WTF is wrong with you?
    It’s racist because there aren’t black leads? It’s JAPAN. Of course it’s most likely racist as fuck. But NOT for being exclusionary.

    The vast majority of anime sucks because:
    1) the vast majority of anime is EXACTLY like the rest of the vast majority of anime.
    2) anime, at the very least, looks the other way, but quite often goes as far as to straight up celebrate and promote the molestation of children.
    3) it is sexist
    4) it is full of toxic masculinity
    5) it is full of toxic femininity
    6) etc

    1. Thanks for the thoughts. I don’t put non-child rape as worse than child rape, what made you think I did? If you let me know I can correct it. Obviously both are terrible. I will say that having pedophilic thoughts isn’t anything that they can control, and as long as they don’t act on their urges it’s never as bad as actually committing a crime. I definitely don’t think anime should be encouraging any of it though. Maybe that’s the confusion. Pedophilic thoughts isn’t as bad as rape, which isn’t as bad as raping a child. It feels weird to write that when of course they’re all terrible. Hope this clarification helps.

      Of course if you aren’t Christian you won’t be offended, but it being against your own religion is a pretty good reason to dislike it.

      To give you an example of racism, say Hollywood despite gives minorities representation, but anime doesn’t.

      I have no problems with everything else you said.
