What tropes do you least want to see?

Post by ReinerSkye » Wed Aug 17, 2011 10:56 pm

Just out of curiosity what tropes do you guys really hate that you absolutely don't want to see in Katawa Shoujo. I HATE when VN's have the protagonist lose memories specifically of their significant other. I hate it even more when the significant other forces it to happen through some bullshit method "for their own good."

Luckily for me my most hated trope isn't likely to come up. But what about the rest of yall? What do you just never want to see in Katawa Shoujo?

"It's okay, I'm on a safe day!" and not getting knocked up as a result

Also, misunderstandings that could be easily diffused, like say... a girl seeing Hisao talking to one of the other girls and spending days pissed off instead of actually trying to clear it up.

If one of the girls goes yandere, the writers'd better do a damn good job setting it up beforehand. Also seconding that whole "wacky miscommunication!" plot. And with a serious medical presence on campus, it'd be nice if they didn't ignore safe/unsafe sex issues.

"Cannot spit it out" taken to extreme levels like it often is. Always annoys me.

I should of known this thread existed already, thanks to whoever moved my post here.
back on topic, the "It's not what it looks like" moments are easily my second most hated trope its the reason I can never finish a Romance manga ( or maybe i just have bad luck choosing them) Every time theres a stupid misunderstanding that could be cleared up in 2 sentences that causes all kinds of drama makes me want to hunt down the writers and strangle them.

In that case, watch To love Ru or Ormamori Himari if you ever wanna really get pissed off. Either one is FULL of these moments. Usually though it doesn't end with drama, just the main character getting beaten sensless.

I don't really mind it that much when the misunderstanding leads to the protagonist immediately getting the crap beat out of them, then everything gets cleared up. I'm talking about when it leads do one or both characters getting emotionally hurt for a extended period of time. I just can't stand how watching those kind of situations make me feel. :/

As fr as I remember there's not much silly missunderstandings in Kare Kano but it's been years since I read it. It was a so dmn good shoujo manga.

Stalker Misha.
.__.

On the Shizune path, while you're trying to put the moves on Shizune more and more, Misha just starts stalking the both of you. Please don't let that happen. :cry:

I just imagined Misha trying to be stealthy. Does not compute.

She could probably pull it off as long as nothing funny happens.

One thing I hope to not see is similar to the misunderstandings others have brought up, but it isn't an accident. It happens a lot in anime, manga, and VNs when a girl finally accepts her feelings for the protaganist and starts to accept him, then her worst enemy that's been her rival in everything and has made her life a living hell for years tells her something bad about the guy which she naturally accepts as the gospel truth without batting an eye.
