>>101544637
You REALLY shouldn't care so much about it. It seems annoying at first but it isn't. Why?

Because most stories are like that already with males being the only ones capable of GOD-POWER ULTIMATE LEVEL UP I'LL SURPASS EVERYTHING and the girls are quite literally worthless.

Fucking Tenjou Tenge.
At least Masataka gets the good end.

>>101544637
That's what you get for reading Koreanshit.

>>101545351
But MC & Bob were cool people who had the GUTS and DETERMINATION to learn how to fight.
>>
>>101548193
It's hardly the only thing I've dropped for that reason, Infinite Stratos comes to mind as a particularly terrible example of the second for instance.
>>
The MC being dumb, spineless, and useless. Worse if he has enough plot armor to survive the apocalypse.
>>
>>101544637
Cardboard cutout bland spineless MCs.
>>
>>101544637
Infinite Stratos would be a perfect case in point here, but Ichika actually kind of sucks as an IS pilot. He has his moments of being kinda-sorta awesome when the author needs him to moisten an onlooking girl's panties, but other than that, his lousy track record disallows him from crossing the Gary Stu threshold.
>>
>>101548361
Yeah, I hate Frodo too.
>>
>>101544637

Satella was an extremely underrated MC.
Most people just spout "used goods" then write her off. However, as a character she develops a lot more than most MCs from other shows (male or female) and in a good way.

Kazuya was one of the most broken characters in the series in terms of ability.

People liked it, if only cause they got to see their favorite characters actually do something without getting killed. However, it's the "cool" thing to hate it and people will shitpost if you say you enjoyed it.

But I didn't like any of those shows either.

Fuck you, Freezing.

that's my big one

I enjoyed Kiddy Girl-and.
It was actually pretty funny.

>>101544637
Nothing.

I literally finish every show I start regardless of how god awful it is/becomes.

Have you seen Cosprayers?

You should try Master of Martial Hearts.

I will never understand this mentality.

Dropping Kill la Kill, Emeraldas, Iria, Bubblegum Crisis, Gunsmith Cats, Burst Angel, etc. all because the MC is female? Seriously?
>>
>>101549804
>Iria

mah nigga!
>>
>>101549804
Listing a bunch of shit shows doesn't help your case.

I'm assuming Gunsmith Cats is shit because the manga was, but I haven't seen that one.

They hate female leads because they self insert and/or hate the idea of a female being anything more than a trophy for the male characters to fight over. This is why female characters are generally useless in manga like Naruto or Bleach.
>>
-If the setting is utterly typical and there is generally lack of any draw other than being an action show
-If the main character has no reason to be main, or a character

For anime:
-Artstyle is really really obnoxiously horrible, or plain/boring with one bad element being the tipping point

For manga:
Artstyle is anything less than excellent. There's too much manga to bother with mediocrity, and I can always make exceptions if I really need to.

Those are the big things to me. I was going to make a large list but that's all that came to mind. Usually any other "instant drop" thing falls under one of those three categories.
>>
>>101549582
I thought the intro school sections were retarded, but its deff my guilty pleasure story.. idc about the fan service though, I think it could be so much better without that
>>
>>101550384
There's a lot less in the manga than the anime. (Which doesn't mean there isn't a lot in the manga...)
>>
>>101547351
Cause you can't self-insert?
>>
>>101550487
Yeah I read the manga, the next arc looks interesting, but the tl's slowed down so much, the raws are coming out faster than they release
>>
>>101544637
>things that make you drop an anime or manga
This artist.

Something about their style makes me want to punch them in the face until they go dead.
>>
>>101544637
>>special world saving powers that only girls have EXCEPT FOR THE MC
He's Maria Lancelot's grandson and the power is not gender exclusive, it is divided between the genders.
>>
>>101550632
He's actually a filthy Corean, so that's likely the problem.
>>
>the MC goes for worst girl
fuck you sword art online
>>
>>101550743
Might be part of it, but sincerely, something about this fucker's "style" makes me want to disembowel him.

I say that as an artfag myself. Only other artstyle I've seen that makes me feel the same revulsion is Ava's Demon.
>>
>>101549699
I actually have. it's amazing how fucking bad a show can be.

>>101549741
Sounds like a challenge, I'll check it out.

>first episode is them meeting and finding they have a connection
>second episode introduces another girl who was not prominently featured with the lead
>repeat once or twice
>show really expects you to be interested in a romance drama it's already told you the end of

Even some non harem shows do this. Why?
>>
>>101544637
>special world saving powers that only girls have EXCEPT FOR THE MC

Nailed it in one. Less drop and more never touch in the first place though.
>>
>>101549349
>Don't tell me you took Geass, Valvrave, or Build Fighters seriously.

Honestly, I think a lot of unnecessary problems people have with a ton of anime would be resolved if said people took them less seriously.

Hell, sometimes the creators themselves know this more than anyone else and ask you to chill out and relax but nah, a lot of people still go BUT MAH REALITY DOESN'T ALLOW THIS.
>>
>>101550632
I share your hate. They all have the same face with different wigs and the keep doing the same fucking expressions of astonishment. It gets really annoying.
>>
>>101551167
>>101551109

1. Watch first episode and see that it's shit
2. Wait till I have a good bit of free time and get unnecessarily high
3. Shit show becomes amazingly funny

Never said I finished every show sober.
>>
>>101552747
Waste of good weed and tolerance. Should have saved it for some artistically surreal show with no substance or value outside of that.
>>
>>101553169
Like Katanagatari or Tatami Galaxy?
>>
Overly detailed explanation of everything.
>mahouka shit

Bitch please, I'm not retarded, save your explanation for yourself.

Freezing needed more suffering from Satellizer.

>MC has absolutely no powers and/or is discovered to have unique and amazing powers
>involves tournament between power users in school, or fighting in a parallel world or another dimension

I was going to mention a gatari, but I abstained.

I loved every second of Nisemonogatari when I had low tolerance and smoked a lot every couple episodes. I don't even remember the story in a vague sense and it was fucking great

Fuck off OP. Freezing and Freezing Vibration is better than about anything airing now a days. Can't wait for season 3.

i have to give freezing some credit, its the only girls fighting series in which they actually get hurt
>>
>>101554127
Why have one weak link who's only there in dangerous situations just to give advice or cheer the fighters on. Especially when they have to save his ass time and time again because he can't defend himself. It's not like any of the girls can't learn how to fucking strategize or something.

You said he was their for strategy. I don't think you even have an anime in mind anymore, just dribbling shit.

Typically, I find that they're not absolutely useless. Then again, maybe I just don't choose to watch shows where they are.

>>101554585
This actually makes sense, depending on how old they are. 16 year olds have always been used in militaries, often much younger as well.

Looking at Maian and some other shit by Im, by the time the story is half over he grow more OP and will become dick emperor, the eternal destroyer of cunts, with the ability to project freezing cocks up any pandora on the planet for a powerup. All while he abuses the shit out of his former harem because Stella got kidnapped to another dimension, right at the moment when the two of them finally decided to do that stigma exchange shit.
