If someone gave me a choice between trying some basic vanilla or chocolate cake, or trying a much fancier cake with a lot of different ingredients and an unusual look to it, I know which I'd rather try.

No, when people say "generic cliched crap" they mean "this is generic, this is cliche, and this is crap".

If they just think it's crap (I.e. a "show they don't like") why bother adding the "generic" and "cliche" qualifiers?

Look, there really are some elements and tropes that are extremely commonplace in anime; much moreso than many other elements and tropes.

Which of the following is more common in anime?:

1) A little sister that is a "brocon".

2) A little sister that is just a little sister.


I can tell you which one would make me think "cliche" more quickly...

I don't think it all really matters so long as you like it. I mean, if you like something, you have a much higher tolerance towards it, and so forth.

Just to show people they hate the show with passion.

#1 is more common, because nobody really wants to write #2.
