I was going to try and draw pictures for each of the boxes, but I couldn't justify the time spent drawing characters I don't like
If you happen to like the characters I've picked in this meme then please don't be offended and don't bother wasting your time telling me how wrong I am and how great the characters are. It won't change my mind and your energies would be better spent commenting on other positive artwork
And I'm well aware it's kinda sad to be getting riled up by cartoon characters intended for a kid audience (with the exception of no.6), but as an animator I enjoy watching cartoons and seeing what the industry comes up with, so the really horrible characters stand out to me a lot more.
10) Miss Yukari
Azumanga was one of the earliest anime series I really got into besides Excel Saga and Ah My Goddess, but it's only recently I've realised how hateful and unlikable this character is. I get the gimmick she's going for, but having watched the series so many times I am BAFFLED as to why the people she's friends with (Namely Nyamo) remain friends with her, and why anyone puts up with her selfish, loud, stupid, incompetent ass.
9) Lola Bunny
Really the Nostalgia Critic summed up everything that needs to be said about this character, and I'm purely basing my opinion on Space Jam Lola as that was where she was introduced. She's shallow, she's characterless, she's blatant pandering to a freaky male demographic unlike previous much better female toons, she's fetishy but not in a funny Minerva Mink/Jessica Rabbit kinda way, she stands out like a sore thumb amongst the more 'quirky' loony toons, and the worst part is that for some reason people (including girls) actually like her.
But like I said I'm only basing this on her Space Jam introduction. I've heard she's better in the new Loony Toons show, and I didn't find her as obnoxious and offensive in Baby Loony Toons either so she's not that high on the list.
8) Cheren and Bianca
Hey, remember the old pokemon games where your rival was just some dude with the same goal as you who ran ahead of you and occasionally turned round to challenge/motivate you, but who otherwise had little to no bearing on the greater plot of the game other than as a final boss after the elite four? Remember that? Yeah, I miss that.
Now we have Captain Powerhungry and Little Miss 'MY DADDY WON'T LET ME BE A PKMN TRAINER BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAW'. Every single time these guys appeared on the screen I was hitting the 'next' buttons like a woodpecker on speed. STOP TALKING YOU COMPLETE NON CHARACTERS.
A wacky, ADHD otaku chick with the power of a god! THAT'S HILARIOUS!
You know what's also hilarious? Physical abuse, physical abuse against men, blackmail, harrasment, sexual harrasment, generally being a moody/selfish/bipolar cow and not getting called out on ANY OF IT.
I hate this character, I hate her popularity, this show is so up its own ass it makes Neon Genesis look humble.
I actually like the show American Dad quite a bit...perhaps moreso than Family Guy...but kinda like Brian in Family Guy the more episodes you watch the more horrible and unpleasant the character of Roger comes across. I don't have a problem with campy characters in cartoons, but Roger is a SERIOUS bitch, and it's NOT FUNNY. If I were an alien living undercover in a conservative American household I think I'd know better than to keep my nasty, mean spirited, bitchy, self centred trash talk to myself.
I honestly don't have a problem with the 'lonely guy gets hot/super powerful magical girlfriend' genre in anime/manga. But if you've read the english version of the manga you will probably know that Misha is the MOST IRRITATING LITTLE GLITTERBALL ever. She's ditzy and useless despite being an angel, she clings to the main character like a limpet and she talks like a 5 YEAR OLD. All the time it's 'we're gonna have shoo much funny wunny! I luvy wuvy you so vewy vewy much!'. I want to slap this idiot repeatedly, she's even more annoying than the rest of the cast (which considering the cast is made up of emos, idiots, drama whores and psychos is saying a lot)
Oh and she has a TWAGIC BACKSTORY relating to the main boy....which takes over 7 books to explain despite the story being lame and confusing, and apparently is an excuse for her being a MASSIVE FAILURE AT LIFE.
4) Johnny Test
Am I the only one who's realised this whole show is a genderswap of Dexter's Lab? Only instead of the focus being on the smart redhead and his dopey sister being the secondary character, we shift focus to the dopey blonde 'totally not Bart Simpson or Ben 10 or any other crappy cartoon sitcom bad kid' little brother with the smart redheads (see, there are TWO geniuses, it's TOTALLY DIFFERENT) as plot devices. And I would have completely forgiven that if the animation hadn't suddenly become really cheap looking compared to the rather nice animation of the first episodes I watched. The new designs are so cheap and are animated so badly, and the characters are either really dull or really ugly.
Tom&Jerry has a surprising number of reoccurring characters despite the episodes being standalone. Spike and Tyke, the various cats Tom hangs out with, the housekeeper lady, canaries, goldfish and other mice...but the only one that downright offends me is this little freak. His irritating speech impediment would be endearing if he ever stopped jabbering and whining and singing. He's a pathetic waste of space and completely breaks the silent comedy of the Tom&Jerry cartoons in a way that no other speaking character could. He's not cute, he's not funny, and he needs to drown.
There are very few shows that I will completely dismiss based on the suckness of one character. Most shows can be redeemed by the good qualities of the rest of the cast to drown out the one character I dislike (Azumanga and American Dad are great examples of this). But in this case despite the rest of the cast being pretty cool and well written all the goodness of this show is SUCKED AWAY by the awfulness of this character.
Everything about this character, from her dreadful name (seriously saying out loud makes you sound like a moron) to the fact that she's just a poor man's catwoman (a character designed to be alluring and sultry...which fails if you're under the age of 18). I would not be surprised if this character was made up by an 8 year old. She's like Rouge the Bat only boring and with even less of a reason to exist beyond blatant sexual tension and fanservice. And that wouldn't bug me in a kids show so much if her name alone didn't make me want to gag....I mean...SERIOUSLY? KaNAPPE? And it's pronounced 'KatNappy' too...you guys do realise that 'nappy' is the British term for a diaper right? Urgh
When I put Haruhi on the list I dropped her down a few places because I can see why perhaps the character might be attractive to some fans. Who wouldn't want to have the power she does and be able to blow away anyone who tries to stop you?
The same cannot be said for this degenerate of an anime character.
For all the things that are wrong with this character, her lack of personality, her gross sexual drive, her demanding and creepy loli-characteristics and her horrible 'punch me' smirk the one thing that tips me over the edge is the fact that we are SUPPOSED TO BE SYMPATHETIC TO HER.
Why? Why should we feel sorry for this abusive, bullying, manipulative, self centred mini sexual deviant? BECAUSE HER MUM DIED. OH BOO FUCKING HOO.
There is no defence for a character who repeatedly tries to sexually assault/humiliate her male teacher to the point where he risks loosing his job and even getting a criminal record. I don't care how many of her family members died, that is a cheap plot point to try and justify the character’s behaviour, and it is NOT GOOD ENOUGH. But hey, this is magical sparkly fantasy anime land where the logic of the real world doesn't exist and creepy little kids can come onto their adult teachers for the sake of laughs and (shudder) fanservice for loli-philes.
Fuck that, I reject your fetish fantasy and replace it with my reality. This character is a freakish creep meant only a loli fetish material.
Rin isn't like that because her mom died, you know. Don't hate something just because you don't understand it. Trust me, the plot nothing near cheap, it's probably the best manga I've ever read. The readon people might think other wise is the fanservice :/ And it's NOT a manga for pedophiles.
The only thing here I can agree with is Haruhi, she was fun at first but now I think she's the most fucking annoying thing ever. =.=
Please elaborate why exactly Rin feels the need to sexually, emotionally and physically manipulate and abuse her adult teacher risking his job and livelyhood for her over boisterous 'crush'? Because I can't really image ANY valid reason why that would be ok...ever.
Not even in a fantasy manga. Sorry.
Also I just went an did an image search for Komodo No Jikan trying to find some official manga scans. It is literally impossible to tell the difference between the OFFICIAL MANGA and what appears to be tonnes and tonnes of lolicon hentai (soft and hardcore). Even with a safe search set up to max I still got pages of the little girls flashing and being molested.
I know hentai should not count for anything (heck most perfectly innocent anime and manga have hentai spinoffs), but when the official manga seems perfectly happy to flash the panties and naked bodies of under-age girls you do have to question what the market is for this show/manga. All the official artwork for the show seems to glorify the three main girls in fetish outfits such as maid costumes, lingere and bikinis. That's not cute, that's freaking CREEPY.
And don't even start on the whole 'Japan has a much more open view on sexuality and sex than the western world'. THAT'S FINE, I GET IT. Still calling creepy.
Oh, well if you read the manga you'd know that Rins like that cuz of Reiji (sorta it's not that easy to explain) NO one said it's OK for Rin to act like that but a perfectly normal guy in that kind of situation how would he know what to do? He doesn't. (You see this all the time when people who are insecure about themselves tend to take it out on other people)
Trust me I can tell the difference between doujin and official art cuz the style is soooo unique.
Ummm bikinis and maid costumes?? Yeah that like never happened, Kuro wears gothic lolita type clothing and there hardly ever innapropiate. And stop using the word fetish it's too harsh for what you are trying to say and makes it sound over exaggerated.
Of course it's cute, that's the point :/
I wasn't even thinking about the "Japans sexuality" thing, but note that there are some cultural differences in the manga.
