Anime is meant for entertainment anyway, and its main focus is to entertain the audiences, nothing much to hope when it comes to education. If you want something educating, better go read newspaper or watch TV news.

TBH the only anime that i deem has some educating value is probably Moyashimon Return

Brain dead and masochist male protagonist who being a prick and choose abusive and violent girl that torture him on daily basis over nice girl that genuinely kind and comfort him.

Even worse, when nearly every romance anime loves to pull this shit

What is bad sometimes is that they have fluent actors or just actual foreigners for the roles, but because of how the social structure works, they can't argue with the producer or director about how to actually say their lines in a way that makes sense in said language. That or they've been in Japan too long that they think in Japanese (I had a friend you lived in Spain for several months and when she came back she had a few weeks of adjustment as her sentance structure in English was off because she was thinking in Spanish and translating into English rather than thinking in English like she had before she left.0

Isn't that something you see in a lot of media? I mean, even in live-action, where they tend to hire actors that are better-looking then average people.

While a lot of female anime characters are really smoking hot, many of them are too thin to be considered realistic, and would even look anorexic if their height and weight data are translated into a real life person.

This article from Sankaku tells us how and why.

It's pretty disturbing to me though that any anime character with a BMI of over 20 would be considered chubby or flabby by anime standards, even if they would meet the normal BMI requirement of 18.5-22.9 in real life. Prime examples, as shown in the article, are Mio Akiyama from K-On! and that girl from Amagami SS whose name I forgot.

However, more and more people now don't trust BMI, since it doesn't take muscle mass into account. Some real life people are considered overweight or even obese by the BMI measurement because they have really freaking huge muscles, but I guess that's the case for action anime characters than in any other genre.

As for anime characters that are too thin by the BMI standard, note that:

1. Most of them are teenagers or little kids, and therefore are still growing.
2. Most of them are of Japanese or Asian descent (though the Japanese are one of the healthiest, if not THE healthiest, people in Asia), so they have different normal measurements than any other race. So they really look smaller compared to say, Caucasians.
3. It could be simply a case of people releasing those height and weight data of anime characters NOT DOING THE RESEARCH.

Someone needs to make an anime of the tragedy of the anime female lifestyle, with cases of people that can no longer stand, keep balance, have shattered bones, or are dying of malnutrition.

Also, Haruhi' seems to be doing the best in that chart but she definitely has those curves.

This also explains why curves in Oreimo are nonexistent outside of Saori. Damn anorexia.

And finally, people were never good at math so they probably didn't do any research.

I don't really hate anything about anime, but I find weird the fact the anime characters always have enormously big eyes, especially considering the fact that it's made in Japan where people have a different eye shape.

Or that pretty much EVERY American, British, European person is White with blond hair blue eyes.

Every chinese female looks like chung li (you know with the stupid hair bun things on their head)

Every Chinese male wheres the traditional chinese clothing long shirt thing.

black people are usually depicted in poor, violent areas, or have HUGE lips and are rediculously dark.

Same for arabs, or basically any dark-skinned person

oh and When they try to have black characters, they make them try to be Rappers (NARUTO's KILLER BEE for fooks sake Japan.)

yeah sure there are some shows when they at least try to be a little realistic with foreigners but really I can name only a handful off the top of my head.

I used to hate the unnecessary fan-service, but I just tune it out, I know 99% of shows out there need to appeal to some subset of otaku/fujoshi group hell even suisei no gargantua fell victim to this for two episodes. . .its a a point where the director has to specifically proclaim that "there is no moe" or whatever in a show lol.

I mean sure there's always been that stuff, but since the world economy went to crap its just out there a lot more to keep that money flowing. The creators gotta eat too.

Not particular to anime, but there's a particularly annoying kind of thing that happens when you have an anime with a source material.

No, I'm not talking about when the adaptation is fail and people point out the issues of it. It's those idiots and their friggin spoilers. Do you know how big a doucher you are when you deny people the experience you had the luxury of experiencing?It's like they don't respect the anime viewers. The worst part is when they just wave it around like a hammer and give off the feeling "Oh, haha you fool! I know what's gonna happen nah nah". Oh right, like knowing the result because you read the thing beforehand makes you extra smart or something and they just ruin discussions. Good thing this is one of the forums that keeps those tools to their own threads.
