    This is probably a me issue, but I feel the urge to ask. Have you ever been watching something good, but there's that ONE character. That one guy/girl/robot/whatever who just sucks all the enjoyment you had out of the show. Kinda happens a lot for me.

    This bitch.
    These two fun killers.
    This twit.
    This twat.

    Etc. I could go on, but you get the drift.

    It usually takes more than a single bad character, as well as several other problems, to ruin a ''good show'' for me.
    At which point it's probably not even a good show in my mind.

    Most of shonens are ruined for me because of bland by-the-book main characters. Even though a shit main character in a shonen is a well accepted standard at this point, it still bothers me every time.

    They were shitty, bland, "We're so quirky" bullshit excuses of characters. Their intro was the beginning of the end for me and Durarara.

    even if they were THAT annoying, their existence was completely overshadowed by the other more awesome characters, starting with the show's mascots, Shizu-chan and Izaya.

    Also, Monogatari series.

    If the whole show is constructed around dialogues between two people, someone should've though about mixing it up sometimes. Araragi is a boring, vanilla character with a shonen-tier view of the world, so having him constantly react to different people always amounts to the same thing in the end. The shows' strength was always in the exotic characters he interacted with, and the moment they started to introduce shitty girls all the flaws became a lot more apparent. They did mix it up with two best girls having an arc for themselves, but that was like fifty episodes into the series.

    That's the thing. Izaya gets shoved into the background for these two tumors.

    These three douches. I mean, the show is far from being a masterpiece but they are so annoying they make me want to punch them, and it definitely tampers my enjoyment of the show

    I always hated Eureka's kids, especially Linck. Didn't ruin the show for me, though. There's also that annoying black-haired girl in Ben-To (to lazy to look her up).

    Oh, him. Almost forgot about his stupid ass. In a show full of badass samurai doing badass samurai stuff, his biggest moment is
    killing one of the USEFUL people cause he sprayed and prayed. With a GUN. Some samurai.

    you forgot when he back stabbed the enemy who spared him a few moments ago, somewhere in the middle of the show.

    That fact that his 'Loves' outweigh his 'Hates' baffles me.

    I don't. I wanna post in DAT like I always do. But now if it merits conversation, it has to be a thread.

    Unpopular Opinion time! When I first watched Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, I absolutely hated this guy and he nearly just about ruined the Battle Tendency arc for me.

    Princess Tutu was brilliant. I'd call it a masterpiece if it wasn't for this poor excuse of a one-joke pony.

    While I wouldn't consider Elfen Lied "good" ("dated" or "edgy", yes. "good", no.), I know a lot of people consider it amazing. Even so, I'd still love the opportunity to wallop Kouta.

    While I agree with you, Kouta was the greatest, most developed character of all times compared to this bitch

    The amount of edgelord AMVs featuring Elfen Lied is enough for me to hate just about everything about it.
