Now though, nearly every show shamelessly adheres to cliche plot points and archetypes.
Not only that but the poorly written protagonist that plagues nearly every anime is toxic. In good faith I can't recommend anime to anyone under the age of 16 because honestly it'd probably warp there brains. It's that bad.
Those are some outstanding generalizations right there, I believe.
Perhaps you'd better choose the shows you watch more wisely then?
