Lelouch Lamperouge. Yea, I'm gunna catch shit for this, but fuck it. The guy is a ridicules vigilante super-genius war general high-school twat who is too caught up in his own daddy issues to even enjoy his own harem anime. He typifies all that’s wrong with anime at this point, and spreads him-self to thin. Plus he's douche, which is sad, because CLAMP does such good goddamn work.
On the female side of things in anime, EVERY MOTHERFUCKING AYANAMI COPY EVER. OR HARUHI COPY. FUCK IT, EVERY WOMEN AND GIRL IN ANIME IN THE PAST 5 YEARS. Seriously, women are basically tits and ass or pedo material and rarely given any complexity or depth that isn’t part of some wrung out stereotype. If it doesn’t fit fanboy tastes, well sorry original character, you ain’t ever seeing daylight! Also, I don’t know why men in japan are trying make me a pedophile by trying to promote GRADE SCHOOLERS in some of THE MOST HORENDOUS GARBAGE EVER MADE.
I can’t really critique American cartoons, on the account I DON’T TAKE THEM SERIOSLY, AS INTENDED.
Lol I guess we have to try harder finding anime/manga with strong female characters. I've had luck finding cool girls recently. Mostly because I tend to drop anime/manga with annoying female characters.
Alien 9. It is forever scarred in my mind as the worst anime I've ever seen. Completely incoherent from start to finish. Although I've read the manga is much better...though when dealing with anime, that's usually true for pretty much all anime.
