I will watch anime and report back on how to actually make it a tolerable viewing experience. Someone get Miyazaki on the phone because this will be a learning experience for him.

Step 1:



I don't know who came up with this or thought it was in any way funny, entertaining or anything other than just horribly unnerving, but this needs to go. The crazy faces / reactions / small bodies / movements when a character gets upset. Don't know if it has an official name or whatever but this ain't it.

Garlemald did nothing wrong.
Miyazaki/Ghibli don’t make those faces though.

Also, watch Eva.

You're of course correct, but I just have to try make it less gut wrenching.

This is not the greatest sig in the world, no. This is just a tribute.
Don't watch kids shows and you won't see that.

Yeah, I figured it was just about costs.

Umm all anime is art, it's not like your simple minded kid cartoons, Baka.

Step 2:

Can't find a picture because I wouldn't know what to look for, but it's the thing where there's always some ridiculously huge and tiny characters in the cast. Like the main guy will be normal size and then there's one who doesn't even reach his waist and another who's 3 times bigger than him. Oh and the small one is also a talking blue thing or whatever for no real reason.

Don't do this, animes.

Step 3:

Cut it with the repeats. I watched like 20 episodes of Naruto and half of each episode is replaying footage from the episode before or even from the same episode. Not even like in a quick 10 second recap at the start, but throughout the entire episode.

Like most people, I happen to have a functioning memory and don't need to see the exact same segment 5 times to know what's happening. Stop this, animes.

Hmm, maybe. The robots look pretty lame compared to the Gundam ones though. Too skinny and arms too long, 3/10 design.

There's like a million Evangelions though. Where do I start?

Yes. Half of the time anime isn't an original work, but an adaptation of something else, in which case anime serves as an advertisement to the source material and usually you don't put much money into advert. Also, most of japanese writers/developers didn't aim toward audience outside of Japan until recently.

The angel agreed to trade a set of white wings for the head of another demon. Overjoyed, the demon killed one of his own and plucked the head right off its still-warm body.

The angel then led the demon to heaven, where he underwent centuries of the cruelest tortures imaginable. Finally, the pain was so great that he lost consciousness - at which point his dark wings turned the promised shade of white.
Have you never watched cartoons as a kid?

Sure did but anime has a very significant adult following as well and quite clearly targets older audiences too with visible blood, adult themes, sexual stuff and so on. Obviously you can't put them all in the same category but cartoons like SpongeBob are obviously not meant for the same audience as many animes.

"Mobile Suit Gundam SEED was widely popular with the public in Japan, winning numerous awards, with high sales of the series DVD and music. The character development and animation has gained praise, but similarities with previous Gundam series have drawn both comparisons and criticism from Gundam fans."

What's so controversial about this one. Also it's apparently the 9th Gundam Series, damn.

STEP 4:

The opening and closing intro / outro song. Intolerable for literally every single anime I have ever seen (except for Pokemon, that shit rocked). It's always the same, it's always horrible. Same shots, same themes, same BS. Songs with random cringey lyrics. Anime either needs to make a good (short) opening or just ditch them altogether. The latter is probably best.

Get rid of it all, anime.

Tl;Dr: The show's first and second halves are prety much the original two Gundam series retold with different charachters but with horrible writing and that ugliest form of the early 2000's anime look imaginable.

Spoiler
The mechs look flat as hell
Fights are 99.99% stock footage
Runtime is like 25% flashbacks on top of SEVERAL DEDICATED FLASHBACK EPISODES IN A ROW at some points
The main charachter is awful
Spoiler
He's your average cookie cutter cardboard anime protag, exept he's also an asshole who cucks SEVERAL of his friends and this is portrayed as a good thing.

Also he literaly takes a nuke to the face twice and just magically survives
