I have a penis and testicles...
Now I know all of you guys willl be saying "Ah! but some of em are good man" and I will reply "Screw you!" lol.But in all seriousness I honestly dislike fillers not the kind of action packed filler arc unless it happens in the middle of a serious arc like in the case of Bleach.But if a TV show is seriously going to be showing episodes that do not advance the plot at all and are simply a lame and pathetic attempt at comedy or to make the romance between 2 characters progress well it is not worth it.I know that fillers are there so the anime does not cath up on the manga but could they not just do like American TV shows where they simply take a few months break then come back with new episodes.Another thing I just find purely mind-boggling is the shorter the serie the more it has fillers! You would figure that a show with very little time would make the most of it...and you would underestimate the stupidity of some TV poeples.Samurai Champloo is plagued with fillers (althought not all of them are lame attempts at comedy ,they actually manage to be funny) wich leads to the question "If you won't make your show about X pupose why even bring it up?" I really do not see the point of knowing that the point of the whole is to find the Sunflower guy if 90% of the show ignores it.If you really want to show wich does not follow the purpose of the characters why give them a purpose to begin with?
3-How are my suppose to differenciate between asian characters and caucasian characters?
Just so you know I am not trying to say japanese poeple secretly want to be white, I am not an egotistical white with a sense of superiority ,I am black.,I even have an asian friend that agrees to that .But this really becomes obvious when in a show one of the main character encounters a caucasian character , the artists go to extreme
lenght to make him look different and it alot of times winds up being a caricature of white poeples wich I personnaly do not agree of.This problem becomes even more obvious when you look at series like FMA,Baccano!,Death Note and Code Geass in all of those series both japanese characters and american characters encounter each other and they are basically drawn the same way.Now some poeples will say anime characters who are said to be japanese have different bone structure I will again point to those TV shows where the white characters appears and show that there bone structure is identical here is an illustration of Lelouch Lamperouge and Suzaku Kururugi.
Now to all of you who haven't viewed the serie ,tell me wich of those 2 characters is american and wich is japanese.Another argument that will try to be made is that it is the westerners that are drawing wrong!And that they are drawing japanese poeples in a steriotypical and from the japanese point of view the way the characters are drawn is representative of japanese.
This argument becomes a problem when you look at characters like Ling Yao,Gin,the paranoia agent characters.My theory is that has documented anime inspired itself from western animation.
Now AGAIN I am not saying asians want to look white or trying to insult anybody but that is my perception.
2-Secondary characters taking the spot light or surpassing the main character in popularity or just getting too much focus
Now I hate this for various reasons. First the series usually want to focus on there main character(you know usually ....) so having another character taking the spotlight makes it hard for the viewer to care for the protagonist.Secondly we never get as much of this character as we want.
example: Kenpachi,Grimmjow,Urahara,Kaiba,Sesshomaru,Ulquiorra ,etc..
Now as for the cases where the secondary characters get too much focus my problem would be that it is annoying if you care for the main character.I have watched the first Naruto series and I watched them shove Sasuke down our throats in the first part up to the final exams!
I for one can say that I hate Bleach but if Ulquiorra was to get a spin-off there is no denying I would watch it.
Hey COMEBACK !THAT IS MY SHOW YOU'RE TAKING!!
1-Movies from shonen titles
Pointless movie is pointless.They serve no purpose as we know the main character is gonna live and everything is gonna go back to normal.It is always the same there is a gigantic threat attacking the universe of the serie, the hero seeks an answer about what is going on and then all the main characters reunite attack the vilain in some super -epic-mega-fabulous-giga-monstruous-hypnotic-magnific-gigantic-awesome attack and the bad guy dies.And of course nothing relevant happens during the movie.I am fien with the movies if they don't happen during the course of a serie or if they take the same story and modify it.
example: FMA: Conqueror of Shamballa
Death Note Live-action films(I did not see them yet but they seem interesting.)
