Power-up,now it is not really power-ups themselves I hate but the frequency of them that I hate when a character seems to literally depend on power-ups to defeat a big enemy like Goku(DBZ) or Ichigo Kurosaki(DBZ with swords).Another thing I hate about the power-ups is how the first power-up is always build-up to be the highest you get but the there is another and another one and another etc.I mean with Ichigo it atleast made some sense for him to have more then just one power-up but where did THAT came from.
I mean I am pretty sure we can all agree on the grand badassery of this form but it made no sense whatsoever and where did all the Goku tranformations came from ,SSJ was one thing but the fusions and the SSJ 4 (I cannot belive the SSJ transformation even went this far).
The typical shonen ,you know like Bleach or Dragon Ball or Fairy Tail or Blue Dragon....yea that kind.I honestly cannot bring myself to understand how a character that acts like a goof all the time,eats alot ,is an idiot and has no other strategy then to power-up is in anyway likeable.I am willing to make an exception for Naruto because he seems to actually be able to vainquish somebody without relying solely on powering-up but on brains also (Negi,Kakuzu,Kakashi,Kiba,Pain,Zabuza,Konohamaru's teacher),he has also mastered techniques using his brains ,the rasengan,the rasenshuriken and the sage mode.I mean I am fine with ridiculously powerful characters but they really have to beat the f*ck out of their opponent and and ,in internet dialect, rape them like Alucard,Lucy or Afro Samurai by example.I also hate how some shows just go on forever I have wanted to get into One Piece but the series has like 500 EPISODES!I hate characters like Natsu,Zatch Bell or Goku.I like characters that are somewhat intelligent like Lelouch Lamperouge,Ed Elric or Aizen.
Now I love anime but those are just thing I dislike.
Especially since the arrancar arc Bleach has been turning into Dragon Ball with swords.It becomes obvious when you look at the ceros and energy blasts and the arrancars punching rather the using their sword.Bleach also uses very little strategy and weirdly it always seems to be when a secondary character is fighting never Ichigo.Also what happened to Ichigo's bankai? He used to be super fast yet now he is just average speed ! He gets easily tagged by Gin or Grimmjow.We barely even get to see him fight in base form anymore. Also like DB the fight just drag on too long .
