The 30 Day Anime Challenge continues on to Day 20, and the subject is … A Character That Annoys You. Now, this one is easy. Like, really easy. And here’s my answer:
Yup, it’s Kamina from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagaan. So, where do I begin? I never finished this show. See, after what I thought was one of the better opening episodes I’ve seen in anime, I found the show to just … go downhill really quickly. Inconsistent animation, a story that floundered, and a cast of characters that just felt dull to me.
Except Kamina. He was not dull. In the opening episode, he amused me. The more that I watched though, the more I thought great, he’s going to open his mouth again whenever he was on screen. His posturing got on my nerves, and his idiocy got on my nerves. What made him even worse was that by the time I gave up during episode 6, I already knew – and this is a spoiler by the way – that he was going to die in episode 8. That annoyed me even more because as much as I wanted him off my screen, I was also aware that he was the only character to get an emotional response out of me, and so I would likely stop watching at that point anyway.
So, to summarise, he annoyed me because he was there, and he annoyed me just as much because I knew that he wouldn’t be. Ugh.
But that’s just me. How about yourselves? Which anime character annoys you?
