Miraculous Ladybug.
>Marinette is a goddamn creep
>Seriously. She invaded Adrien's personal space so many times, and sabotaged a lot of shit just to smell his ass. She is not a good friend to Kagami, AFAIK.
>Marinette's creepiness and possessiveness over Adrien are ridiculous because it's not like he even knew she liked him
>the show's "will they, wont they" device with Marinette and Adrien's relationship dragged on for so fucking long, I had enough and quit the show a while ago.
>in the episode of Chat Blanc, how tf did Adrien deduce that Ladybug is Marinette, when just the episode before, Marinette used powers to convince him that she and Ladybug were two different people?
>what the show did to Chloe's character development was shitty
>Alya's character is emptier than a bag of Lay's chips. At this point, Alya is whatever Marinette is at the moment. If Marinette thinks XYZ, Alya will think the same. If Marinette does XYZ, Alya will support her or do the same. She's written less like a character of her own, and more like a puppet.
>show can't seem to stay consistent with how much Gabriel cares about Adrien
>speaking of Gabriel, how tf did he not figure out that Cat Noir is Adrien a long time ago? Even for a kid's show, it's stupid that not even Marinette's parents can identify their only daughter wearing a domino mask, and a skin-tight suit when Marinette isn't even using a fake voice.
>show wastes our time with the first two seasons because approximately every single episode in those seasons are basically the same.
>show's creator self-inserts his life into the show way too much, and pretty much based Marinette's family, including Marinette herself, on his past relationship with his ex. IMO that's childish.

holy fucking shit I hate saya no uta. I always think I'm the insane one when I say why I don't like it, because moids and scrotes get on my ass and say "well ACKSHULLY, it's philosophical! it's a game that makes you think!! it's a terrifying horror game!!" fuck NO it's not, it's literally a fucking loli porn nukige.

while I did like the horror parts of saya no uta, they focused way too much on the fucking loli sex, and the game is around 4-5 hours as well, which isn't enough to develop the characters. If I remember correctly also, moids got pissed at a russian who wanted to remake saya no uta, because he aged up the main character.
I kinda want to cut the game some slack because it is 20 years old or so, and it's basically a very experimental one. But I also hate how people give it so much praise and think it's one of the best VNs of all time. No it's fucking not, it's like watching shitty porn. I love VNs and playing this game made me not want to touch VNs for a while.

Anonymous 30210

if anything i'm surprised eroge/nukige from the era of "let's make erotic games with decent plot and characterization" ended up as like a holy grail of VNs. it's still porn at the end of the day.
scrotes need to realize not everyone is going to like a porn game but that's asking for a lot from them.

I dropped that bunny girl senpai anime like 3 or 4 episodes in. it's been awhile since I watched but I remember the characters being so boring and soulless. like just very generic and unlikeable with nothing redeeming about them. the moid mc in particular felt like a shitty self insert to me. it also gave me the feeling it was going to turn into a harem anime if I were to keep watching, and for some reason the interactions between the male mc and his little sister felt off to me. the artist of the light novel which the anime is based off of has made a ton of hentai, a lot of which features underaged girls, so I'm glad I dropped the anime even though I don't think he had much involvement.

I hate anything battle shounen (even if they’d call it seinen) and I hate how anime equals battle shounen
nayrt, but since relevant to my post: for me it’s hyper and dumb - overemphasises any emotion, any event, too much drama I don’t believe a bit - I know it’s because it’s for kids and they don’t know subtle, I guess, but adults praise it too
Also various body types for male characters and one universal for female characters, haha classic

Anonymous 30225

There was a censored version released, iirc, but the most common versions of the game include the porn.

There's still really weird shit like one of the MC's friends being turned into a sex slave that sucks him off while he talks to his friend on the phone, and the whole thing where the alien race Saya belongs to "needs human semen to survive", or some shit like that. So even if you take away the sex scenes, it's still pretty ingrained into the plot.

Saya is one of the most overrated things of all time. What I dislike is how the story itself and so many of it's fans try to make it seem deeper and darker than it actually is. I think it's a very basic story but so many people make it out to be this totally unique and amazing experience that it just is not. I think you have to be easily impressed or a little dim in the head to really like it.

I like the concept of fuminori vision and saya being an eldritch abomination who only he can see and who kind off "saves" him. I do agree that the sexual aspect is too much. I like the disturbing factor of fuminori's vision but I don't think all the sex scenes ( rape and mind breaking of yoh ) were at all necessary for shock factor. However the detective lady was an underrated girlboss !
It is one of the most effed up things I've read but I enjoy the creativity of it, it takes alot to disturb me
I do agree that it definitely isn't for beginners, it made me take a big break of VNs for some time. Just because it's a short story doesnt mean it's beginner friendly

What's upsetting about miraculos is that it has so much potential, like the miraculous and their history, Gabriel's relationship with Adrien, the dynamic within the characters, Adrien and Felix being sentimonsters, it was all there for an awesome series to arise.
The love square is an actual creative and original idea yet it's wasted on this show, I hate it so much but the fandom is full of extremely creative people that do awesome content.

Most fantasy anime sucks. It usually devolves into an incel harem fantasy with weird rape or pedo vibes. The worst aspect is the slave girl that falls in love with the male protagonist. Whenever there's a strong female character with an actual personality. They usually get captured or almost raped by some antagonist. Only to be saved and added to the male protagonists harem.

Shared gameplay and mechanics, recurring elements, reused enemies, brand recognition. Also the trend started back in the NES era probably due to the closeness in release dates and it stuck around like with many other titles like Dragon Quest or Megaman.

Post-2010 anime is utter shite. It’s all shonen big 3 ripoff crap.

I hate AOT, MHA, Demon Slayer, Hunter x Hunter. They all seem kinda content mill-y to me.

I started watching anime when I was a child in the early 2000’s. The genres of each show were so much more diverse, the plots had so much more substance and meaning, and the art was so much more detailed. I used to get so excited when I met a fellow anime fan because I had someone to talk about my interests with.

Now, whenever I meet an anime fan, they like all the modern shonen BS that I don’t watch, so I might as well not even bother seeking out other anime fans. These shows are also far more palatable to normies, so the demographic who consumes anime has completely changed. Whenever I try to show them older shows, they are completely disinterested. It makes me pretty sad because I wish I had IRL friends to share my interests with /:

Anonymous 30875

You are aware HxH is way older than that, right? Also most mainstream anime has always been shonen battle manga and the "big three" are all DBZ wannabes themselves, just like those shows that came after.
You have to dig a bit deeper if you want to talk about other types of anime, but mainly you'd want to talk about manga since there's much more variety there (like it has always been).

I hate hazbin/helluva boss. I followed the creator years ago because I thought her art was striking, not necesarily good but I liked it enough to be curious what could be done with it animated. It's sad to me seeing how mismanaged it's been. She got the show she worked on for years in development hell and fired the friends that made her original pilot posible. Then all the episodes of the other show she made shows how her team just doesn't have the chops to carry a show because it's just no fun, all the episodes feel like they animated a first draft where characters just play to their schticks and go through the motions with something kind of like a joke but feels like no thought is put into actually being funny. But what actually pushes me to actually hate all of it it's the fanbase blindly consuming any crap that they churn out leading to all of it never improving and just keep sinking until it just all collapses on itself when hazbin finally releases not being good at all or the bulk of the fanbase stops being teenagers and move on the something else to base their personalities on.

Any novel written by Henry James. Every time I try I end up dropping it after 1-2 chapters no matter which one it is. The fucker takes like 20 pages to say what could be said in a paragraph, and barely anything gets communicated in the first place so it feels like you wasted all this time for no reason. It drives me fucking crazy, I'm done trying. One of my favorite authors is Joyce so it's not like I don't enjoy dense and meandering literary bullshit that fills you up, and I've read through Gissing's self-pitying slop just fine, it's just James in particular. It makes it worse when one of his fans gets mad that I don't like it and starts indignantly gushing about how amazing he is. Good for you but no, I will not like it even if you do, it's just not my thing.

For me it's FMA 2003.
It captured none of the humor and charm of the manga, was full of needless changes, left wide open plot points, and twisted certain aspects of the series to be darker just for the sake of them being darker and more convoluted . Also don't get me started on the ending, it's completely retarded (especially the Hitler part), unnecessarily depressing, and turns Al from an independent character to Ed's bottom bitch lapdog. And people have the gall to say it's "more mature" despite the manga/BH having quite serious/somber moments as well. The only people I've come across who say the manga is shit and 03 is better are edgy contrarians and degenerate fujos who have a kink for suffering and incest. They could've just left the ending open like most anime do nowadays, but the director was braindead and effectively took a fat steamy dump all over Arakawa's work with the ending. Fuck that fanfic tier garbage

I was that girl who was 'smart' and nerdy, and somewhat corrective. My family members calling me "Sheldon" made me hate the big bang theory long before it was "cool" to hate it. On one hand, I am thankful that show existed, because it did sort of show me how annoying I was being and I corrected my behaviour. At the same time, however, most people are complete fucking morons and just think anything vaguely sciencey/academic = big bang theory. I know people have ranted about this show before, but being socially awkward sucked so much as a teenager, and it would've been nice if there wasn't a show whose primary punchline was laughing at socially awkward people.

I also really hate any "sport" involving animals, especially horse-racing or dog-racing. Any "sport" that exists solely for gambling. Any gambling. I hate the gambling industry. Oh also the news, and social media, and my mum's Facebook where she has photos of me as a child on public which would tarnish the otherwise professional image I've made for myself. Yeah…

I hate Genshit and I hate its style so I hate every game that looks like that and I won't even bother to try to tell them apart because it's all sickening to me. It literally just looks like coomer AI "art".
I hate moeshit, I don't think moeblobs are cute, they just look and act like retarded baby aliens that I feel the need to forcibly deport back to their home planet.
I hate Overwatch and most of its characters and especially Mercy. the characters that I don't hate deserve to be in a better game than that. Honestly I hate all Blizzard games and also all class-based multiplayers that aren't TF2.
I hate like 95% of fantasy as a genre, I'm tired of Tolkien knock-offs. I hate capeshit but at least this is becoming more and more of a popular opinion thankfully.
I hate Taylor Swift and I think you have to be absolutely braindead to be an actual fan any deeper than maybe her big hits that play on the radio, let alone one of those imbeciles who seriously believe she is secretly a lesbian feminist leftist who is "gaming the system". I also hate Radiohead and their boring music and their pretentious fans and Thom Yorke looks absolutely punchable.
On a lighter note I think Animal Crossing is very cute but the gameplay just bores me to death so I could never get into it. Also fuck Nintendo's console exclusivity autism, thank Goddess for emulators at least. I hate those deranged freaks who sexualise the Animal Crossing characters and I think they belong in an asylum. Actually I think all furries should be lobotomized and thrown into an asylum.
I actually do like MGS a lot somehow but I do hate its scrote fans so I refuse to talk to them and only hang out with the fujos and yumejos. Too bad most of those have trooned out and become absolutely insufferable which is on par with all fandoms these days.

Lol, moids will always try to pretend their favorite animu or eroge is 'deep' so as to not seem like gigantic perverts. I think this should be widely known by now.
On Saya no Uta, there were philosophical elements to it, as with all of Urobutcher's works, but yes, the H-scenes really detracted from the message and the serious tone of the whole game. I still enjoyed it though for the horror aspects, nevertheless.
Are you new to VNs though ? Japanese Visual Novels are mostly coupled with H-scenes because it's like a sort of troupe with those types of games. I've heard stories of otaku refusing to buy games if they aren't coupled with ero-content.
This. Little Franziska was very cute though.
Most 'normie' anime fans were always into the big shounens, whatever was popular among psuedo-intellectual contrarians, or whatever flavor of the month anime was showing at the time. None of these people truly genuinely liked the medium and never will. Anime isn't otaku only anymore it's for the masses because everything else in comparison is overall garbage.

tbh this is how I feel about brotherhood but in reverse. I found it dumb asf, everyone was ugly, it was twice as coomery and the writing got worse. When I found out that brotherhood was supposed to be closer to the manga I just gave up and decided FMA in general isn't for me. I still like 2003 but I acknowledge that what I like most about it is everything that divulged from canon material; I really liked Shamballa for this reason too. I found that I didn't enjoy Silver Spoon either so I think I just don't like Araki in general kek. I wish there were more 2003 fans that were normal. I get tired of trying to talk about 2003 only to either get brotherhood spergs or edgelords.
I hate Big Bang Theory so much. I'm an aspie and I just hate it honestly, it's an extremely moidy show too.

Pretty much all anime now. It's so buried under stupid cliches, the SAME characters and plots rehashed over over, and yet trying to be overly overly sentimental.

There are some 90s anime I will always love like sailor moon and ccs. But most of it is just irredeemable crap. It's so indescribably bad. How do they even get most of it made?? Even the 'really good ones' feel like they have the same exact characters with the same exact attitudes and supernatural problems. Japan need to take a break and go back to doing what it did in the 80s. Nothing from the 70s or 80s felt the slightest bit contrived. Even though it was all old at least it didn't borrow the same thing over and over .

Worst of all, I feel like the creators are 100% aware of how recycled it all is

I know. I'm watching it as it airs. I never thought I'd ever watch an anime about a kid with erectile dysfunction. I want to know what goes on inside the head of the mangaka. It's so intentionally written for male audiences who have never had a single woman present in their lives that it mystifies me. All of the female characters exist as a means to an end and some of them are introduced and written as if they're literally retarded.

Anonymous 31692

To be fair, most things are these days. The market for manga and anime in the US and Europe is big enough now that anything more than a few years old has an official translation or sub, and if you're impatient anything with a decent following online will have fan subs or scanlations within a few days or weeks of a release.

Same goes for pirating, it's not like back when our poor ancestors had to tirelessly search Kazaa or Limewire, spend two days downloading a file with only one seed, and then pray it wasn't a virus or something. You can find pretty much anything now.

I recently watched The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and I really don't get the love for it. The meta gimmicks with episodes sounded cool and unique, but the actual episodes are dull and the humor consists of "LOL BOOBS! LOL GROPING XD!" so what is even the point? Apparently people see the characters as endearing or as some sort of clever parody (?) but I just find them annoying and boring. You can sum it up as
>titular character constantly acts bitchy and autistic, sexually harasses other character, causes trouble
>victim character cries, squeals, has boobs
>generic guy is almost the voice of reason but too beta and spineless to do anything
>other guy does nothing except pull exposition out of his ass
>final character sits in the background in silence, quietly unfucks the situation using magic when it comes down to it, but otherwise ignores everyone else

Read Icebreaker by Hannah Grace
Most infuriating pick me smut book
Mostly all porn no plot
It’s got chapters upon chapters of skating, partying, being drunk, and fucking, some unnecessary drama, rinse and repeat
Too much going on and yet nothing happens at the same time.
All the side characters just exist as set dressing for the main characters to show how cool and popular and loveable they are.

The main female character is a bit of a bitch and acts grumpy and stubborn to everyone yet everyone loves her because she’s a badass girl boss who stands up for herself. And there’s a weird subplot about her eating disorder?? Despite that she of course has big tits and ass for every male character to ogle at. Which is unrealistic if she is underweight. Also she wears no pants and has random casual sex with men which seems too cliche? Is that what college is really ljke? I was doing an online degree so someone tell me because Idek I don’t have any point of comparison

She of course only has one female bestie who is barely in the book. All her friends are the male hockey team players. And her Other best friend is a male friends with benefit.
Also the main male character is everything a woman would want in a man: tall rich big dick and athletic god body. And he doesn’t care if she lashes out at him he always comes crawling back desperately.
And yes he can’t cook so the girl goes to cooking classes to feed his frat house like Snow White and the seven dwarves.

Lastly the dialogue is just banter and if you cntrl + f in a text file for pussy, dick, wet, hard and throbbing, you’d find 100000000+ results lmao

Right now I very much dislike the focus on magic systems in current fantasy in general, and particularly despise how those "systems" are just blatant, unashamed game mechanics in Japanese fantasy. There's a modern manga tendency to even go so far as to make game menus pop up in front of the protagonist's faces reading off their stats and spell lists…

Magics should feel as though they have their own personality, not just their own rules. What makes magic transgressive, what made magic such a menace to public safety that pagan Rome would hang those who practiced it, is that it is intentionally calling upon the gods to curse and damn and condemn. The crime the poet Apuleius was almost convicted of, which carried a sentence of death, was the use of sorcery to concoct of a love potion. When so much of the public life of Rome was built around propitiating the gods the witchmen and poisoners would intentionally piss them off to call down curses and mishaps while under the impression that they, like Sisyphus, could simply outwit and evade the wrath that they themselves had summoned against society, leaving only their targets struck. A love potion is a manufacturing of Aphrodite's curse, the mania of love, fully destructive and volatile; a deliriant the madness of drunkenness from Dionysus, distilled beyond the moderating limitations of wine; foretelling, the madness of prophesy from Apollo, snatched like a thief without paying the price of devotion worked by the Pythia; a poison, the power of Ares called through murder without requirement of physical courage, angering the lord of battles in such a way that the whole city will pay as war will surely follow. Each act, each curse, each grimoire is filled with the personalities of the beings and spirits that the practitioner is in communion with, no less than the ritual sacrifices and secret rites of devotion for the gods. Forbidden magic is not just asking for the wrath of the gods to strike someone; that might as well be a public prayer for justice. Forbidden magic is intentional sin committed in such a way that the gods will strike, but the transgressor steps away from their strike; disguising themselves from the god of darkness they offend through wearing candles and mirrors, leaving only the hair, skin or blood of their victim as evidence of who the god shall smite; hiding their deceit from the goddess of love by raising cacophany, foul odors and offensive signs until the love potion is brewed and can deliver its fateful curse to crush the wits of its recipient. One of the many signs that Apuleius had been brewing a love potion had been the fermentation of fish in his own house (itself a crime under Roman law). Offending the gods, deceiving the gods and conning the gods takes every bit as much work as getting on their good side.

I honestly think that anime these days are made for failed narcissists. Narcissists are very good at taking credit for the positive actions of others. One one hand, losers who watch anime vicariously live through protagonists who are surrounded by helpful friends while going on great adventures and defeating "evil" to become numbah wan and get adored and praised by people around him, and on the other hand, losers watch anime like Love Live and feel good about being with the girls throughout their journey and take credit for their success because they supported them.

It's sad that studios don't want to take risks anymore, and they mostly play safe by adapting successful media like light novels and manga and piggyback over it, or they just produce something original with an interesting premise but same old rehashed plot formulas. Studios get requests to make sequels but they're still obliged to produce only what their clients request them to, and they care more about money than artistic endeavors.

Anime in the past really had to pull hard punches to stand out, and were ready to take serious risks. Now it's all about sales or else you just shut down the shop. No fucks given about art, you just have cheap CGI instead to cover budget.
I don't even want to talk about sexualization of minors.

I hate Haruki Murakami's books. When Norgegian Woods came out, it became all the rage. I wanted to know what all the fuss was about, so I went on a reading spree and read all his books back to back. I shouldn't have forced myself to suffer like that, but I was desperate to understand why everyone praised it while I just couldn't see anything of meaning. His books don't make sense. So many things get introduced without a why. Is it some type of symbolism? I certainly have no clue what it would mean, nor do I think anyone does really. There are a couple elements, for example the woman in 19Q4 whose occupation was to murder trash men, or that sheepman (I don't remember from which book) were ok I guess. But what I hate even more than the meaningless elements and plots are the main characters. Insufferable. They are always these fake-deep men who are so aLoNe and aLiEnAtEd. And the way he writes women is trash. They're just there to serve the man in his journey, that's all. But the women aren't real. It's purely a description of how a man perceives women, and the result is disgusting. For the life of me I'll never understand his popularity. Especially amongst women. Every time I hear or read his name I'm filled with this visceral disgust. Unreal.

This is the hate thread, but you're spreading outright misinformation about the VN so I had to chime in.

>a shitty VN made for smelly scrotes who play with a mouse in one hand while stroking their dick in another being sold like it's some artistic masterpiece.

Muv-Luv is three different VNs. First two of which are rolled into one release. Only first one, Extra, was deliberately marketed as a generic bishoujoge so that Alternative would sell better. Evident by how it frequently deconstructs and parodies the genre. If you actually read until Alternative, I'm surprised you didn't know this.

>only to sit through a 30 minute clicking marathon featuring descriptions of a girl having sex with a tentacle monster before I gave up.

I don't know why people like you seem to forget you have a Skip (Usually CTRL) button you can skip 99% of H-Scenes in any VN ever with. There are also translations that only get officially released without any H-Scenes, for pearl-clutchers like you. That was the case with Muv-Luv Alternative. What you read was either the unofficial Amaterasu translation or you deliberately went out of your way to patch this H-Scene back in the game.

I can't stand versions censoring out H-scenes, but complaining about it even when there's ones right there for you doesn't even make sense.

>How can you take anything serious when their suits make them look like half-naked women without nipples?

The suits are scantily clad to lower everyone's modesty around eachother and deepen their trust. In a war, modesty is one of the least of your concerns. This actually happens in the military, although granted probably not usually with women and men together. Also to be noted that nudity isn't as big of a deal in Japan as it is in the West anyway. They used to have mixed gender onsen. They aren't as common anymore, but in a setting like Muv Luv Alternative where many parts of life have been forced to go back in time I can see it happening because of that.

Honestly, it sounds like VNs just may not be for you in that case. You sound like a pickme who can only watch anime and would just have a melodromatic breakdown over Euphoria, posting a Youtube video of themselves fakecrying over "these weird Japanese porn games" like that Sydsnap chick from Trash Taste.

I meant pickmes as in people like Sydsnap who post showing off that they play through something obscure and niche like VNs, while simultaneously having unnecessary and melodramatic normie reactions to their content, or not even bothering to sit one through because of their preconceived biases and impatience.

>play with a mouse in one hand while stroking their dick in another being sold like it's some artistic masterpiece.

Right off the bat >>33141 basically thinks Muv-Luv is some nukige because it has a few H-scenes at the very end of every Extra and Unlimited route that you don't even need to read through, and only one H-scene in Alternative that if you played through Steam you wouldn't even see and for most people is only a very small part of the series that doesn't even matter past being deliberate shock content.

There's no way she actually read through the VNs without knowing this. Or having played any other VN ever. If you give her early original Key VNs, she may dismiss the whole VNs as shitty just for running into H-scenes added to it at the very end of the route. No one that actually enjoys VNs raises that much of a stink about them having sexual content. Especially not when they're completely irrelevant to the rest of the VN.

By the way, there is a consensus that most VN H-scenes have terrible writing. Muv-Luv is no exception. No one is jerking off while reading lines like

>A pair of protrusions take on hard, definite shapes, emphasizing the existence of breasts underneath.

An actual line from Muv-Luv. It's clearly not pedaled to be jerked off to, but she already just thinks every VN is STARLESS or something.

NTA but I always have an issue with people who complain about a VN being nothing but porn when it's usually such a small part of a 60+ hour story, especially when a commercially available version removes H-scenes.

Fate is another good example of a popular series people rag on for Stay/Night being porn but it's optional content in an otherwise clean VN. At the end of the day the games are upfront with their content and a player can choose to turn it off if it isn't something they want to see.

Anonymous 33205



I don't deny there is alot of sexualization overall. VNs are still, by and large, otaku material. They are made by and for Japanese otaku and that is what otaku culture likes. That is why Japan itself seems to push out more nukige than they ever do plotge and why plotge like MLA is actually a very small percentage of successful VN. Because of that, unfortunately, Japan itself does not help in alleviating the image of VNs being "weird hentai games".


There should always be an option for people who want to play a translated VN with or without H-scenes, rather than outright censoring them out imo. Censoring them out is taking too much creative liberty than is appropriate. It may disrespect the writer and the work itself, and flat out miss info that may be relevant from it. It should also not be a translator's job to police the content of the work and release a supposed professional translation that has translated only pieces they're personally comfortable with. Either get someone else to translate them or leave the work alone.

I actually really hated the Amazing Digital Circus. I went into it fully expecting to love it and was just horribly disappointed
The plot is so incredibly cliche. Everything that you expect will happen next just happens. I’m not saying it needs to be extremely subversive, but it feels like a children’s cartoon in terms of its reliance on tropes.
Speaking of tropes I really really hate the characters. Every single one is written like the author studied other characters that are popular on the internet and copied them. I can’t wait to see the further adventures of Tumblr Sexyman, Object Head Ominous Villain, Cute Mascot, the Sassy One, the Childhood Friend, the Craaaaazy One, and of course, Literally Kobeni from Chainsaw Man

Seconded, though I only played 5's story mode for fujo reasons. But if I stepped back from that and looked at it objectively, it's not a great game. Drive from point A to point B in a car with meh controls and other cars cutting you off all the time. A seemingly large impressive map but not a lot to do in it. Leftovers from cut content that might have made it feel less empty. It's nice as a driving/listening to the radio simulator but when I think about how much money these things cost, it's ridiculous.

Does Red Dead do the thing where if you fail a mission enough times it lets you skip it? Talk about a lack of confidence in your game design.

Tye Amazing Digital Circus is the first ever piece of media I ever described as "mid".
Everything about it is very much just fine. Nothing about it was hateable (except for the rabbit character), and nothing about it was lovable. It was just a by the numbers cartoon that felt very PBS.
I kind of liked that it was clearly inspired by Portal but it's clearly a show for youtube's primary audience: little kids.

Anything relating to Kamen Rider. I listened to moids praise this show for years and when I decided to finally watch one, it… well it feels a little mean to make fun of it, because it's obviously for 10 year olds. But it's just shitty production, shitty actors, shitty story. I realized the adult "fandom" is just men being entertained by flashing lights and funny sounds, as if they're still kids. Actual franchise for manchildren.

the acting is bad but it's full of ikemen and also love and peace shit actually appeals to me on a monkey brain level. plus the actors all star in BL right after the season is over. idk something about the shitty production value is soulful for me.

Baldur's Gate 3 is the worst game I've ever played and I genuinely don't understand why it got game of the year and was hyped up so much by fucking literally everyone

not exactly consumer media, but workout influencers who are obviously bored rich narcissists

there's a great amount of influencers who are nice people with good intentions that look great and everything, who have great development stories and helpful information.
But there's just a great amount of douchebags and lying animals occupying the fitness sphere I feel is more prevalent this decade due to the ease of social media presence/attention.
the worst ones are the ones who have barely any skin in the game and have just maintained a vain body most their lives and then after a little bit of exercise and development they feel entitled to spew garbage and toxic material online. Lord knows daddy bought them a branding line and everything. I hate how superficial everything is

Honestly, a bunch of my friends started playing it. And I thought that I would try it out because of that. But every single character has literally the most nail on chalkboard voice, I can't listen to them at all. Everyone sounds like they have 10,000 pounds of phlegm up their nose holes. They talk like Victorian British freaks from the 1800s. Simultaneously bored and offended. How can you take any character seriously?

I played BG2 and I don't remember any character sounding this bad. Also all the freaks wanting to fuck the vampire? I don't even know who the vampire is! I just know everyone's running around wanting to fuck it. It just gives very Tumblr vibes

Bruh. Romancing the vampirefaggot (don't judge me ok I hadnt had a vidya romance since Solas in Dragon Age 3 and really wanted to lose my vidyavirginity and he was the only 'evil' option for me) was SO ANNOYING i had to use a fucking walkthrough to basically do a bunch of boring sidequests just so I could pick a specific dialogue option to get him to like me. OVER AND OVER AGAIN. By the time I got to the sex scene I didnt feel any satisfaction whatsoever.

Plus, the level designs suck, the characters are so boring that I didnt even give a fuck about the weak ass plot, and even with tutorial mode on it doesn't tell you that you can manually disable turn-based mode. Which resulted in me being stuck in turn-based mode AFTER having completed a particular quest which was REALLY annoying to do in turn-based mode bc there was no combat, we were rescuing some people from a fucking fire.

Honestly only got the game bc it can be played co-op and my bf and I like to play games together. Turns out our characters couldn't even interact with one another, much less have sex. Meaning if we wanted to see a sex scene, we both would have to cuck each other. This led to us referring to the game solely as "CucksGate3".

0/10, not only the least fun ive had playing a game but also probably the most irritating game ive ever played. DO NOT BUY THIS GARBAGE

I watched helluva boss because of the shock value. I liked the first episode then just lost interest. Its too 'vile' (I know the main theme is hell and its supposed to be vile and vicked but to me its just bad taste) and the show reminds me of what I hate in people.

Tales of.
Few games in the franchise are not that bad, most are mediocre at best, Graces is the absolute worst, characters and story are so shit.
>main character similiar to isekai protagonists
>main heroine is a lolita dressed tsundere that nags every other character, acts superior and gaslights main character into feeling bad for things he has no fault of
>in the final arc he suddenly loves her and they get to live together
>story is a melting pot of various tropes, with the darker plotlines reminiscent of some Final Fantasy titles, albeit lacking the great writing, alongside the cheerful and power of friendship themes of Kingdom Hearts, without nearly enough charismatic characters to pull it off.

With that said I find funny legendia has barely anyone talking about it despite being one of the best written games in the franchise with developed characters and dynamics kek

GtaV is the best gta gameplay wise, but story and character is lacking, I know a lot about that shit because it’s all by brother plays

I never liked the film Idiocracy. It reeks of Hollywood elitism looking down on middle Americans and the working class. Like without the guidance of university graduates and the upper class we'd all somehow devolve into Neanderthals. When all the necessities to maintain civilization come from the rural countryside and regular people doing hard work. While the elites reap the rewards and often destroy local businesses in the process.

Yeah it's easily Mike Judge's weakest work. I love everything else he's done. Beavis and Butthead is my favorite cartoon, Office Space is in the discussion of my favorite movies but this just isn't good. None of the jokes land and the idea is the most mean spirited one I can think of. And of course it's also responsible for the platitude that is better for confirming a person is a faggot pseud than any other. "Bro, Idiocracy wasn't a movie, it was a prophecy!"

Fuck moids, i get the sexual atraction but we have nothing in common they are se excretable

I think there's another reading of the film's message that isn't quite so elitist. Many of the smartest of those rural countryside people will chose to leave the countryside to pursue an education and a desk job in the city, where they'll choose not to have children. Eventually there'll be no one left who knows how to rotate crops or herd cattle.

Anonymous 34729

The movie very explicitly links intelligence to inheritance, not education.

Anonymous 34730

That is my point. If all the smart people move to the city then there will be no one smart enough to farm properly left in the countryside.

It's still elitist and you're an elitist too. At least be honest about it.

I thought that the Great Gatsby sucked. I mean we read it for school so I mean I guess that doesn't count. The writing is super incoherent and I think the whole messages behind it were super obvious. Rich people in the 20s were vapid assholes? Wow, that's so crazy and surprisng kek.

Anonymous 34777

That’s one of the few literary classics we read for school that I actually liked somewhat, and only because of the vivid scenery descriptions and the ~symbolism~ that got me a good grade on my English essay. A bit weird because I tend to hate anything with romance

I fucking hated the "Rebuild" of Eva. Piece of shit Hideaki Anno destroyed a beloved franchise because he wanted to show to all the smelly scrotes that he's a big boy now. Fucking demented. I will never forgive him for ruining Asuka.
