Do you like anime?
843+ answers on Quora about “anime” says YES.
But there are some things that aren’t likable:
Unnecessary fan service.
Most creators are bad at this.
Instead of being subtle about it and using it where relevant, the fan service becomes even more relevant than the story or even the characters.
Hence why shows that overdo this turn out awful (My First Girlfriend Is A Gal, etc). The cliche of “teenage superheroes” or kids saving the world.
Why not characters who are 18, 20, 22, 27, 34? It’s starting to get silly seeing 8- 12+ year olds save the world all the time, with laughable character development, bad acting or worse: an attempt at fan service disguised as something “cute”.
My Hero Academia is at least worthwhile when it comes to this (and they’re closer to 16), but most of these types of shows don’t feel unique anymore.
This could also be the reason why people who like Superman or similar things refuse to watch supernatural shows (Comic characters tend to be older than anime characters). Characters who look 10 but are 500 years old.
This cliche used to be silly (when it wasn’t cliche) but now it makes you wanna face-palm yourself when you see it.
Japan is obviously different in how it does things, but it’s a little weird making kid characters (Loli’s) and making them old in age to justify their designs and the role they play in the story. In spite of that though, anime is special.
There’s not a medium like it, and there’s so much to learn from the things you watch. Read: What is the greatest lesson you have learned from an anime?
